Stratovarius Back in the US

Post by AMBR@BEC » Wed Apr 12, 2006 5:45 am

This is not yet confirmed on the Strato tour page but this is now on the B.B. Kings, NYC show calendar:
STRATOVARIUS
Featuring:
Special Guests
2006-10-02
8:00PM
Tickets go on sale on 04/18/06


and on Jaxx site in Springfield, VA:
Stratovarius
Sunday, October 1st
Stratovarius have only 5 North American dates on this tour. Don't miss a rare opportunity to see these Finnish power metal legends.


I guess we can't assume it's definite until it appears on their site, but the tickets are going on sale next week. Anyone with more info?

I hope this is not an April 1st joke. :D I guess everything gets a second chance a second time around, but once again I'm not holding my breath. ;)

I guess I have time to make sure I have some time off---if this is not a rumor. ;) I just wish they were coming further South---if a big star like Alice Cooper can come to Huntsville, Strato can at least come to Nashville! :D

Does Nashville get many metal shows? Gotta be tough living in a country mecca. How far is it to Springfield, VA?

A StratoConcert as a Birthday is just a perfect present. :) I hope, they'll play on 26 july here too. :lol:

Hell yeah, it looks like my birthday month is gonna be chock-full of great shows. Queensryche is playing in L.A. on my birthday, I'd love to go to that. And if Strato shows up a few days later, give or take, that would be incredible. Although anyone who knows me, knows that this is a LOT coming from me---I'd forsake Queensryche if I had to in order to see more Strato.

VA is about 3 states to the North&then, 2 States to the East! :D Not that far, actually. :)
There are lots of Metal fans in AL&TN--more than you'd think. Lots of ands come to Huntsville, Florence, and Birmingham on their tours--even IM came here a couple times in their history. Ozy has, Yngwie, etc. We are not a bunch of fuddy-duddys here. :D Lots of cool Metal people who enjoy Metal music. :) And all that goes with it! ;)

Oh, :roll: just some 16-year-old goth girl said she left her dignity&bra on the StratoTour Bus, and she was pleading that if they ever came back to Winnipeg, Canada to bring her bra back. :lol: I just thought it was ironically funny. ;) :lol: I have my own reasons. :D

Greg Allman was shagging Savannah(the porn star-RIP) when she was just 15, so some people just do not care, I guess. :roll: Musicians(as a rule) can get away with anything, anyway! =P ;) It's like an unspoken gospel! :D
But, from what I hear, the ROADIES are the ones having the most fun! =P :headbang: :beer:

The gig was only 4 days after my birthday.
Technically, the gigs I went to were both 4 & 5 days after my birthday, but I had been saving for them for a long time and knew that was how I was going to spend my birthday. I told anyone who was thinking of getting me a gift to either save their money or help me with my Strato fund! :lol:

But it was all worth it, the band put on two consecutive nights of excellent shows and Timo K. gave me a birthday hug.

By dignity you mean virginity?

And guess, why I was considering becoming a crew member of Stratovarius. :D Just think about it, listening to Stratovarius all the time, having good talks with them and with the crew members, and having to give back bras to poor little girls. :P :lol:

This is fucking great news! I checked ticketmaster as soon as saw the news of Strato coming back to the states; the NYC show already has their tickets on sale! The LA show's tickets are on sale too!? *faints*

Oh, and I want to say hello to C! It's cool we've met each other before and hopefully we'll see each other again at the next Strato show :)

I had to go to the B.B.Kings box office to get tix for a different show and couldn't restrain myself. I got my Strato tix already. Hope it all goes through as planned.
