Helloween -- Moscow, Russia -- September 16th, 2011
 
Well, the show was pretty cool. Stratovarius kicked major ass (I got me a setlist + drumstick!) and it was their last show with their drummer, but Helloween was hella disappointing. Even though it didn't help that I hardly knew their catalog, they still looked, acted, and plain-out seemed like washed-up glam rockers. Whilst one of the guitarists looked like he was straight out of Poison, the other two guitarists (bassist included) just looked like they belonged in a retirement home, and as for the singer himself, his annoying "hey, Moscow! let's repeat this chorus 22 times for lulz!" got really annoying especially since he decided to do that during the two songs I actually knew pretty well. The singer also wasted about 10 minutes telling useless anecdotes about the drummer mixing his prized scotch whiskey with Coca Cola - I say it's useless because not only is he not funny, none of the audience save me and probably a few Americans knew what he was saying. Anyway, here are the sets:

Sad to read such a bad review of Helloween. I love them, one of my favorite bands. I've never see them live though.

I saw Helloween once in 2008, I loved them.

I think it's also important to mention that this was Jorg Michael's last show as drummer for Stratovarius. Unfortunately, the guitar amps failed quite a few times during the first 3-4 songs and house sound outright turned off a few times during the last few Stratovarius songs as well.

Yeah, I just had someone on Setlist.fm scold me for saying that. I did mishear him, but at least I got what Timo was saying partially right.

Worth it just for this song alone though.

I'd have been disappointed seeing Halloween as part of a medley, I wish they'd do the entire track live. Bring back Kiske

I'm def wondering what was up with HELLOWEEN, cause when I've seen them the past 2 times they toured the US they were GREAT, no real issues that I can recall (except for maybe more sing-a-longs than I would have liked, but it seems to be a mostly European thing...?)
