2012 Concerts

Way over 100 shows in 2012- a personal record!

NIGHTWISH GIBSON AMPHITHEATRE UNIVERSAL CITY 1/21/2012

I bought a ticket to this show months ago.  In doing so, I knew next to nothing about this band.  I checked out part of one of their videos and I was completely sold on seeing them live.  Plus, from what I read, it seemed like it was going to be quite a theatrical event (and they did a great job in hyping up the show), so that made me want to get a ticket even more.  For some reason, I just had to go.     I’m glad I did- it was one of the best and most original shows I’ve seen in a long time.   Saddle Ranch even kissed up to the early birds.

A couple fans lined up WAY TOO EARLY for the show!!   They didn’t go on until almost 10:30.  Check out the guy in the Justin Bieber shirt!DSC00015DSC00016

The band is from Finland.   Anette Olzon is the name of the singer and I think she is from Sweden. She rocked and the entire band was killer. They were sort of like a world music-type metal band.  What an incredible production.   A lot of the music was symphonic pop metal-oriented with theatrics, great backdrops and awesome pyrotechnics, but some of the show was just downright heavy metal bordering on thrash.  The mostly young crowd was very into it-  I had no idea they had such a loyal following here.   And this is real music, so it was neat to witness people really enjoying something good for a change.   I now understand why they have such a strong international following.    So far, I’d have to give it the show of the year!  I’ll definitely be going out and getting their entire catalog of music soon!

      Thanks! That was the best show I’ve seen this year- it was great. I started recapping the shows I’ve been to about 2 years ago. I have about 25 years of shows to catch up on… Of course, I only have about 5 years of pictures, so that makes it a lot easier to go back to the 80s. Have fun!!

  10. Merely wanna remark on few general things, The website design and style is perfect, the articles is really great : D.
