Got a chance to see Blind Guardian for the second time ever. This was the setlist (I think its in order):

War of Wrath
Into the Storm
Born in a Mourning Hall
The Script for my Requiem
Fly
Nightfall
Bright Eyes
Valhalla
Time Stands Still (At the Iron Hill)
Welcome to Dying
Another Stranger Me
Lord of the Rings
And Then There Was Silence

Encore:
Imaginations from the Other Side
The Bards Song - In the Forest
Mirror Mirror

Overall this was a great show. I liked how they had the video wall behind them and the band was able to play images during most of the songs. It definitely was better than a random "Blind Guardian" poster and it added another dimension to the songs. In fact I think each song that had video images was enhanced by this use of video. Bravo BG for using this!! :party:

Not much to complain about the setlist except that if this is a tour for A TWIST IN THE MYTH then they really didnt play that many songs from that album. I would have really liked to have heard "Otherland" but this album is really one of my least favorites of their catalog so it wasnt that big of a deal for me. I was surprised that they only played "And Then There Was Silence" from ANATO, especially since they played it for that album's tour. In fact I wouldnt have minded 3 other songs rather than this epic song but I wont complain all that much since I do love this song.

The most amazing thing that I have seen in a concert setting was right after Valhalla was done everyone in the crowd kept going and singing the "Valhalla! Deliverance! Why've you ever forgotten me?" over and over to the point that Hansi, Andre and Marcus sat down in front of Frederik's drum set to watch the crowd. In fact the crowd participation was phenomenal. There were many times when Hansi wouldnt sing the lyrics and the crowd didnt miss a beat with carrying him on.

If Blind Guardian is heading to your town for this tour I highly recommend you go and check them out.

I would kind of like to see ' This Will Never End ' as the show opener, and then ' War Of Wrath/Into The Storm ' as the intro to the encores.

I almost bought tickets to see BG in Chicago on this tour but I thought I would wait until closer to the show. I am glad that I waited because I just realized that they are playing in Chicago on Thanksgiving night! My family would have killed me if I tried to go to a show on Thanksgiving. That is crazy.

The pit would actually get huge at times. The crowd was very into it. I forgot to mention that before the encore everyone started singing the Valhalla chorus once again. :rocker:

Yeah, they were fucking wonderful last night. I think they kept the same setlist except they swapped "This Will Never End" for "Another Stranger Me" which I was pretty happy about.

this resembles a lot the US tour they did for a night at the opera. not much from the new album, a good amount devoted to "nightfall in the middle earth," my favorite album of theirs. it is weird that they arent playing much from the new album, which makes one wonder the reasoning behind that. i mean the album has been out for a bit now.

either way, I wish I was back in the US to see this. I missed the Swedish date that was closest to me.
