European Tour!!!

Post by rikkertje » Wed Jan 06, 2010 11:52 pm

Tomorrow the European Tour Will start! I Will see Strato in 3 days! Saturday 9th of January will be my second Stratovarius concert. I'm really looking forward to it! Hope they play a little more Polaris-songs. And some older songs they don't play very often like 'Coming Home' and one of my favorites: 'Winter'!

We'll see!:wink:

I wish the guys a pleasant Tour! See you saturday in Amsterdam!!! :D

Good luck to the guys on the tour. Have fun, stay well and may your flights be on time, your buses keep running and all the equipment work reasonably well.

To you lucky Europeans, have a blast, take photos and be sure to share your experiences. :headbang:

Gonna see'em at Toulouse, hope they play, apart from the classics: Paradise and Coming Home!

Thanks for the setlist. It's pretty good. I would just add Millennium there, but it's also good without it.

Eagleheart, Hunting High And Low, Black Diamond, Phoenix are there, and many more great songs, so, that's important. :D

He flies through the rainbow
Into a new world and finds the sun
Spreading his wings
Above all the sorrows
The glory of Eagleheart <3

Well, tonight's the show!:) I hope I can travel to Amsterdam!!! They are expecting extreme weather with snowstorms... And I have to travel 2,5 hours. All the way to the other side of the country.

We'll see how it goes.:wink:

I hope they play more polaris-songs! It's the Tour for polaris so i don't understand why they only play like 3 songs. Ah whatever, it will be fun anyway!

DAMN!!!

The road is too slippery. It would be too dangerous to travel to Amsterdam!!! With the train it takes ca. 6 to 8 hours to get there!

It means I won't be seeing them tonight!!!:(

SHIT!!!

I can't make it...:(

No one wants to drive from Enschede to Amsterdam. And I can't go by train because it is not shure if the trains are still driving tonight. And I don't have the money to stay in a hotel!:(

This sucks! I've been waiting for this concert like 6 months and now I can't go!!!:(

I take the risk from Rotterdam to Amsterdam, but if we not can't drive back tonight we will stay in a hotel too. We leave 4 pm instead of 5

Fingers crossed we can make it?

I thought Amsterdam was full of cheap hostels... now that it's the slow season for tourists you'll probably find one REALLY cheap.

And you've still got plenty of time to perhaps sort a train out... what's the news saying?

I know there are cheap hotels. But due to personal reasons I have to save every euro I can. That's why I don't go by train. Because they can cancel the trains any minute. And I can't afford to take that risk.

The news sais that the weather will get worse in the hours to come...

Man, that sucks :( hopefully everything will be okay when they play here tomorrow... I live in the outskirts of London so I also rely on trains to get into the centre in a decent time.

I'm sure you'll catch Strato at one of the summer festivals they're bound to play...
