Nightwish(with Tarja :D )



aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh so lucky you are!!!!!!!
I'm so envious! I wanted to see Nightwish with Tarja, which is no longer possible (even though I like Anette...she isn't Tarja and se CAN'T sing old songs like the way they were meant to be :cry: )
BTW, Tarja's Winter Storm's quite good 8)

OT: I can't stand Tarja. But yes, she has an amazing voice. She studied opera singing... So, good. But I don't like her.


May X be with you!

I could agree to not being able to sing the old songs on Nemo, I don't think Anette handles that pretty well, but for songs like Sacrament of Wilderness, I thought the song was like one of the crappiest songs ever, until I heard it sung by Anette last December in Jyväskylä. I really thought Anette made the song a million times better. Also I think she fits well in Ever Dream, Come Cover Me, She is My Sin and especially Dark Chest of Wonders.

And Winter Storm is a piece of Marcelo Cabulis excrement compressed into a record IMO ;P

I gotta add J.B.O to my "have been there and recommending" list.

And I think, I should add B'z to my "want to see list". At least what I've seen on youtube tells me, that I'd see a show full of energy and... uh... sweaty men in shorts, hahaha!
No, seriously - if B'z are around here someday, I'll go and watch this!

And out of the chaos I heard a voice telling me:
"Smile and be happy - it could have become worse!"
So I smiled and was happy... and it became worse

Me three?  I want to see them again, damnit!

B'z are AMAZING live.  I swear, every song they have is at least 2x or 3x as good live.  Even if it's a song you usually skip when you listen to the album, when they play it live, you'll think it totally rocks.  I speak from experience. :P

Brr... I really need to catch them live sometime. Tak Matsumoto is damn brilliant guitar player and vocals sound interesting too. B'z playing Train Kept A Rollin' with Aerosmith is pretty orgasmic just to watch the video. :D

Yeah,I like Anette and I don't have nothing against her,but without Tarja,Nightwish lost that "something" that made them really special in my opinion.
Anyway,yeah that concert was a blast 8)

ChthoniC


Hah you've seen ChthoniC? I was soo close to be able to see them in Taiwan, but they played like two days before I got there t_T.. But ah.. I guess I don't care thaaaat much about them, it's just hard to find the Asian bands in Europe. And, it's more cool to see them at their home 8)

I've seen all bands I HAD TO see now, after finally watching X Japan. I guess there are some deceased ones I wanted to see pretty badly, if I can count in both the early era of In Flames & X (Japan).

The ones I HAD to see and saw were:
In Flames, Strapping Young Lad (I was lucky, it was their last tour ever and nobody knew about it at the time), Opeth and X Japan.

I'll just copy my note on last.fm:

Bands I want to see live right now:

In Flames (back in the days~1997-2000)
X (early era~1988-90)

Bands that I want to see

1) Muse (I missed them on their Black holes and Revalations tour when they stopped locally due to some stupid assholes >_<)
2) Takanori Nishikawa (Either solo or with ABS, I'm not fussy)
3) Luna Sea (If they played in Europe I would be there in a flash)
4) S.K.I.N - Those 4 guys on stage will be one hell of a show, whatever way you look at it.


Bands which I have seen, and would otherwise want to see
1) X Japan (When they reunited, nothing could keep me away from Tokyo Dome)
2) Blink 182 (Yeah, I know, not an obvious choice - but they were one of the first bands I ever got into and seing them on their final tour means a lot to me - their final album kicks ass)

Bands which I will never get a chance to see
1) Queen (I don't count Queen + Paul Rodgers as 'Queen')

 - Kiss @D@ they're coming to Graspop, in my country, but I don't have the money to go T_______________________T
 - Hanoi Rocks!! I love them!

Those are the bands that I can think of right now... I'll probably add more later.

I've seen most of my top bands/musicians (X Japan, Mogwai, Radiohead et al.) but the one person I am desperate to see is:

David Bowie

Extra: Won't happen but..The Smiths doing a one off reunion would be beyond epic.

Of course I'd love to see X Japan, but I'm also agreeing on David Bowie. The guy needs to tour at least one last time.
I want to see Queen live, but Paul Rogers left the second I get into the damn fandom. :( I'm now wondering who will do the vocals.

Voltaire is another, and if I could see Heart again that would be fantastic.

I really wish I could have gone to a Klaus Nomi show, though. The guy had some great performances.

Absolutely HAVE to? Pink Floyd (well I'm seeing roger waters doing the wall [5 days before X!!], which is the next best thing) and X Japan (*knock on wood*). Others include Oingo Boingo (yeah right...), Daft Punk, Buck-Tick, Luna Sea, Miyavi, Fire Bomber (Jam Project works, too!), David Byrne (preferably with the rest of the Talking Heads)... Some of these are differing levels of impossible.

Bands I've managed to see already...Geez, let's see. Coldplay, L'Arc~en~Ciel, the Pillows, Psycho le Cemu, SKIN, Juno Reactor, Kalafina with Kajiura Yuki (she signed my .hack//OSTs!!), Nobuo Uematsu (with the Chicago Mages at a Distant Worlds concert), and I'm sure I'm forgetting someone awesome here and there. I go to see this Pink Floyd cover band called The Machine a lot too, they're awesome. I've also been to a few other western music shows, but they were sub-par for one reason or another...
