W.A.S.P. -- Varberg, Sweden -- October 6th, 2012
Varberg, SWE - Sparbankshallen
Opening bands: Badmouth, Engel
This was my last time seeing this band, Blackie wonīt screw me out of my money anymore. Out of the promised 2 hour-extravaganza celebrating the bandīs 30 years we got the standard shitty 80-minute set. (I donīt call two full intros + a drumsolo celebrating any bands heritage...).
The first three songs were actually quite nice, but then - as always - here come the prerecorded vocals. Most of the remaining songs
had between 30% and 100% prerecordings. Forever free does not have one single livesung note. Very very sad.
Goodbye Blackie. I love what you were, I loathe what you have become. Your lack of respect for your longtime fans is mindboggling.
