it's a good final but Destiny is also awesome with the end of the song = end of set. Or Anthem of the World would be great too. A long song would fit very well

I think that they must play anthem of the world, right before Black diamond, it's an to long song, to play lasts

I wonder, is it just me who would like this to change? I wouldn't be bothered if it was at the middle of the setlist, but it's always the same ending... It's become too repetitive in a way and predictable.
Definately! This is their masterpiece--can't wait for the remastered version!

I don't care as long as they play it. It's a classic tune.

I like most of Stratovarius' songs, but Black Diamond has&will always be one of my favs. And, yes, it is a Strato-Classic. The best is saved for last&BD is the best! BD in all its awesome glory is what lots of StratoFans look forward to at the concerts.

If Strato wants to cause a riot, all they have to do is just remove BD from its setlist! :D

holy crap!! i'm so shocked...
the second song Strato played tonight was black diamond! I thought that song was the eternal "okay, here's the end of our set" song (except for the WTF is going on shows or whatever, when they ended w/ Destiny).

Black Diamond is the best song at the end of Stratoshow IMHO and I wish they´ll put it on that position in the future . :)

I guess they were just trying something different. ???

I imagine the fans were thrilled about the decision! :)

yeah, it'll probably go back to black diamond later, but... i was really happy with the setlist (phoenix?! abyss o' your eyes?) and that it didn't end on black diamond for a change :)

Same here. In fact I wouldn't be bothered if is was not played at all.

I remember reading a recent setlist (on this forum somewhere) that Black Diamond was the second song played.

Father Time closed the set.

That was quite a nice list ! I'm not very fond of Father Time though. Put Learning To Fly instead and it's an almost perfect one :D

I don't care which is the closing song as long as it's a fast song and be so powerful that the music reach your soul, and it has to have a very extended ending
Legions is a nice option!
The faint blaze of the candle of my life,
slowly dying like a fire in a pouring rain.
No sparks of hope inside,
no shooting stars on my sky.
On broken wings, no flying high...
