Hope to see many of you guys in different towns we'll play in.

We're ready to rock! I'll be back online in a week or so I imagine.

See you!

:D :D :D Good luck! Good luck! Good luck to you.
But, but, we will miss you here! :cry:

I was in Belagrade a few days ago, and it was fantastic! :D
Unfortunately, the hall wasn't full, and there wasn't many people, as usually, but all the people who were there thinks that concert was amazing! :D
Winter's Verge were awesome, they gave their best, and Tracedawn, too, but my favorites are WV.
I bought Polaris shirt with European tour, and it looks beautiful.

Took some pics with Lauri & Timo, and just few of were lucky us took pic with Timo, 'cause he left us after a few minutes.

Lauri is awesome guy, on stage, and outside of it. So friendly and cute. And he's just pro in playing bass! His solo was unbelievable! <3
Kotipelto are one of the most amazing frontmen I've seen so far. <3

Strato had an amazing setlist and show, and hope I'm gonna see them soon again!

I'm pretty sure they won't be back here for some (longer) time, or at all, but anyway, I'll try to catch them somewhere on tour. :D
Impressions are great, evening was beautiful. <3
I met many (dear) people there, we attented one of the best concerts, and it was some special connection between bands & audience.

Thanks all the guys (special thanks to Kotipelto, Lauri, and George - singer of Winter's Verge) for such a beautiful evening! Hope to see you somewhere as soon as possible! \m/

Here you can find some pics from the concert:

Yesterday show in Bratislava was totally stunning and wonderful! I mean, all the bands played really well, very good setlists and pefromances, even the sound as well:) I don´t know how the hall looked in terms of attendance from stage, but more than 1 000 tickets were sold.

I had the pleasure to interview all the bands for various Slovak medias (Strato - Timo, Tracedawn - Antti, Pekko, Winter´s Verge - Goerge, Miguel). It will be mainly used for printed media but I will do the English version plus pictures for the ones interested in and hopefully upload it somewhere at the weekend already :)

Strato´s set:

Destiny
HHAL
Speed of light
The kiss of judas
Deep unknown
Million light years away
Bach?
Winter skies
Phoenix
Guitar/bass solo - I´d say Matti won this time:D
Forever is today
Paradise
Will the sun rise
- because "This one wasn´t in the set for the show, but one young lady called Lenka I think, asked me today if we could play this song...And I thought why not" - that was meee :D)
Eagleheart
________

Forever
SOS
Black Diamond



I´d like to thank all the nice people I spent the day with! Was great :wink:

JENS! I am the girl who was in front of you in the pit under the stage :) If you ever read this, pls, thank Timo for the song again. When he told me in backstage that the band didn´t rehearse Will the Sun Rise, that you hadn´t played at this tour so far and for longer time actually, I really thought you wouldn´t do it...But you did :)

See all you Strato guys back in Slovakia in august. And hopefully the "supporting" guys somewhere sometimes as well:)

Cheers! :)

First time I saw them I asked them for Paradise, we got it, next time it will be Coming Home! ^^

But yeah, that's amazing how the accept playing songs asked by fans: that's what a fucking great band does, and Strato has always been one of the greatest bands!!!

What is the problem with this dates? :) They are not here because just yesterday Strato confirmed... And of course, I know about the other bands, but I should shut up at this point as they are not officially 100% confirmed, you know :) But if the things work out as well as they could, it will be awesome :) As soon as I can, I will tell you the band names...

:oops: Shame on me, but I´m not sure :D I know that in the past it was called More Than Fest (but it used to be two days in one venue), but now its structure has changed and I don´t know if the name remains :D As long as we manage to get Kiske there, I don´t mind about its name :wink:

Well, just got back home.

I can't really think of much to say at the moment, so I'll keep it simple: we had an incredible experience on the tour which was something entirely new to us, and I want to say on behalf of the rest of Winter's Verge a heartfelt thank you to Timo, Matias, Lauri, Jens and Jorg of Stratovarius for making us feel so welcome, FD, Keijo and the whole road crew for helping us out with everything we needed, Antti, Tuomas, Ronie, Villi, Pekko and Perttu of Tracedawn who were great bus- and beer-mates and everyone who came to the shows, checked out our music and had fun.

You all rock.

It was really good to meet you finally and I was really glad to hear your band live. I just hope that next time you play at least double the amount of time you played now. It's a good first step, but gosh you already need to take the third now!

It went really well. Though it was much more serious than we first predicted. It took one and a half hour to finish it. I was asleep during the process. I had a big S-curve inside my nose and behind it there was a bone-outgrowth which the doctor couldn't see until my nose hedge was fixed... and then he had to remove the outgrowth. And later burning the bottom tarsus as it was double the normal size. I was staying in the hospital till Friday and I was getting better really fast. I will be able to use my nose from this Friday when the doctor removes all the phlegm (as I'm not allowed to blow my nose I have to wait for him to clean it). But I already feel more smells and more powerfully than before. So it was definitely worth taking this operation. :)

I think it is true. Last week I already heard from a 'very reliable' :wink: source that they were rehearsing KoN and another very cool Polaris song. :)

Wait, is it fake? Seriously?
