I've noticed that all of the merch HIM Norway posted only say bang and Wimper your 2017 nothing actually has farewell tour on it, very strange and avr's comment about ville saying they fooled us and then the comment of ville saying atleast not as HIM, very interested to see what is actually going to happen or go on
Today tomorrow seems so far away and the wait in vain

Isn't that the point "going out with a bang" or "going out with a whimper". I do find the whole thing strange I wouldn't be surprised if they stayed together, formed a new band or simply split up. I wish they actually announce something official because we haven't heard any official statements since March.

What if bang and whimper is a song or an unfinished album?

Doubtful. It entirely relates to the idea of "going out with a bang" or "going out with a whimper".

first little part of the tour is over, 4 gigs , no bootlegs, even there is shit on the youtube, almost nothing, just some cellphone clips that look like shit, i dont know if the cameras are shittier or if youtube started to make every video look like even bigger shit, there is oly one solid video of Funeral Of Hearts from Madrid  - multicam, that looks like even audio is some audio recorder sourced, i didnt find any way to contact the uploader, just left the comment under the video that i will buy it
it looks like we will have covered shit of this tour, i have a fear that they will change the setlist and will rotate those rare songs for other rare , i bet Resurrection will be changed for Death Is In Love With Us and Stigmata will be changed for something from the first album, maybe For You or with a little luck we will get Our Diabolikal Rapture or maybe The Beginning Of The End . There is not much of the Venus Doom in the setlist, i think In Joy And Sorrow will be changed for Sleepwalking Past Hope and i would not be surprised if they shortened the gig duration in the end of the tour in November/december, they will be exhausted and tired of it
I was fucking expecting some solid video from Spain/Portugal tour , everyone fucking taped few clips on the cellphone, potato quality and put it on the facebook. I really wish that there was some fucking proshot from Tuska ....at least FM broadcast, guys keep your eyes open and see for any kind of information. Then there is only last chance - MiljoonaRock ,.... because from their "private" gigs, there will be nothing

here is the video of Ville talking about the bands future, i suppose this is enough for every dreamer who dreams about new album and not splitting https://ulozto.net/!LSIoN8bDtSM3/ville-about-future-of-him-mp4

Wow, hold on for a second.. that is so rude to say.. I'm offended by that comment. I'm sorry some of fans footage wasn't good enough for you (including myself). I'm not an owner of the best of camera - I did my best to film footage of the shows I was at to share with community, I didn't have to but I did. Just be greatful there is footage? Or attend the shows yourself and film them? I can't wait to see your 'pro footage' of Prague.

buddy, calm down. I did not even see your videos yet as you did not upload them, i check the video section daily for some update. I did not mention you so how did i offend you exactly? I did not mean to offend anyone, i appreciate every fan effort, even those shitty small clips. I only expressed my point of the entire HIM community and youtube. Few years ago, when they played something rare there was full youtube of it immediately. They performed Stigmata Diaboli, Resurrection and i could not find the entire Stigmata Diaboli video. There is one on the youtube that is not full. There is no full audio source on the Dime, no full video on the youtube. Youtube is not the best source of "bootlegs" but when there is nothing i take youtube as a good thing , its better than nothing. Youtube normally makes videos look like shit, the bitrate and everything is compressed and the quality of the video on the youtube is worse than the original if you compare your original and the same video uploaded on the youtube and then ripped from the youtube. Look at the clip - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AtSz7JRlQIU i appriciate that its full at least, there is not missing a single second of the beginning, audio is not the worst either, but the video quality in general sucks really bad, 240p .... in 2017 its like a joke really, this is not watchable, you barely see drums in those pixels, the guy obviously encoded the original video in some program to get the smaller video size and uploded 7 MB video ,....its really not watchable , is it for you?
The greatest thing is that you take something personally and get offended atough i did not even mention and thought of you in the first place and you dont mind attacking me, i mean OK its the internet but if someone says about videos , not the members, not the uploaders, how can you get offended ? Its like someone is bitching about the quality of the football in the TV and it plays the team from my town and i get offended? Nonsense. Take it easy , no one offended you so dont get offended with no reason.
regarding my Prague - it will be taped with Panasonic Lumix TZ30, hopefully it will look like my Bratislava 2015 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JzJq8zuXaWA

I can understand what he means...
In 2017 we should be able to record the entire show in some way, and not half songs or incomplete shows...

I recorded the Porto Show in full. It's not the best thing ever. It's no soundboard. But it is full. I will make it available as soon as the audio is tuned up and the tracks are separated. It's gonna take a while though. Be patient. It exists and will be available.

no need to apologise buddy
i apologise if i touched you somehow, i did not see your videos and i did not talk about any forum member and not about anyone in particular. I just thought that there will be more, it looks like fans dont care much, when there are not even videos on the youtube of Stigmata Diaboli and Resurrection. I mean, its 2017 everyone has internet and i dont think that the band does not care, i mean there were theories that some of the band members could be on the forum as well,.... we know Ville, he cares and who knows if he checks the videos on the youtube, if he will see that fans dont care about Stigmata and Resurrection they will simply replace them for some hits like Soul On Fire and Scared To Death and we will get the "greatest hits" setlist again. Those two are like miracle in their setlist. Who expected and dreamed about those two in the setlist? Hearing Resurrection and Stigmata Diaboli live means for me literally one thing "mission completed" and i can die happy. I always wanted to hear live And Love Said No and mostly Resurrection (everyone know that i am obsessed with the song!). And Love Said No was planned for 2010 tour - they dropped it after Helldone - i was so pissed that i completely ignored a chance to see them live - for free in Vienna in 2010 i just hated the setlist and the sound and was really mad that they did not give ANd Love Said No a proper chance after Helldone. I fear that after those 4 gigs there will be different setlist for the US tour and for the European tour in late November and December. If i had to chose to see them live with setlist based on BABL 14 times in a row and Resurrection or regural setlist without Resurrection - i would go for that BABL setlist with Resurrection in it. No other songs needed, and i really hate BABL. Sorry for my shits , i just expected greater attention to the band and i thought it will be really HUGE as they are done as a band and they are doing the Farewell Tour.

616, you say Ville cares right? And pays attention to the Internet? I say as a community,  we stop with the cam recording and either make a request for shows to be hooked up via soundboard (and be available for download via their website, if Link in park did it, HIM could) OR somehow get some secondhand equipment for their tech to hook up so we can get something similar to a soundboard recording. A pipe dream but it'd be awsome

I understand your point now - I put a video up asap after Barcelona and Madrid - maybe it's not the full songs but I put effort in to sharing with everyone :) I got full stigmata diaboli on my Madrid video. There's still heaps of the tour to come :)

FoH - no one from their sound engineers and technicians will risk law suit for fans, they are paid to do their job, they wont let you record from the monitor neither they will give you a copy from the monitor. If you are a great friend with them, maybe they will let you stay in the FoH and record something on your audio recorder on the tripod - not from the mix.....
i know RHCP did it, they released every gig in lossless and lossy quality on Im with you tour - people paid and got them. I would not mind paying for the gigs if they did it, but we know this band and Ville, he wont do it. it would be great and awesome but the chance is not even slim.
avr - where did you upload it? could you make topic on media section - video - 2017 and upload the videos as you recorded them here? i would like to see

Yeah,  a massive pipe dream I'm afraid. It just seems wrong to not release any tour footage if it's the final tour. Of course I'll admit that I'm being a whiney bitch but I'm sure fans wouldn't mind paying for it!!

Ville made some comments last night about how they've fooled everyone about the farewell tour - don't know if he was taking the piss or not? But the crowd went wild and everyone seemed shocked when he said it. Said they were going to hold a meeting after the show to decide what they are going to do - probably taking the piss but I don't think the guys know what the want xD The band were on fire, everyone was laughing, making jokes, Burton did an awesome keyboard solo and the guys were clapping along to it along with the crowd. I've seen the guys so many times but last night in Madrid was special. The 1st two shows were of the hook.


Here's another version of the video that shared 616 about the future of the band:

I saw that video earlier my interpretation is that he's saying that we're so easily fooled for following them for their careers. In his jokey way he suggesting we're easily fooled into believing they're worth following.

Got my tix for the Warsaw, Poland show on November 28. Anyone else going?

I'm going to the Warsaw show as well (: Mainly because of the smaller venue I think it'll make for a nicer show. The house of blues in Houston isn't what I consider big either.

Does anyone know how much USD tickets are going for? I don't have a job right now, so I need to know how much to scrounge and save for.

Tickets are $45 for Houston. LiveNation app lets you get them now.

For those in Houston (and possibly Dallas) let's meet up and get drunk lol.

I'm going to the Houston show too. I thought of Dallas as well but that would've been greedy.

I hope no one finds it odd me just jumping in this thread being an unknown. I was sad and typed "Him is over" and found this forum. I read that entire thread and this one. I was involved in the live journal stuff but am embarrassed of not being aware of this one. I feel I have nothing to add on top of what has been said so far but I'm really enjoying the site.

Isn't that the point "going out with a bang" or "going out with a whimper". I do find the whole thing strange I wouldn't be surprised if they stayed together, formed a new band or simply split up. I wish they actually announce something official because we haven't heard any official statements since March.

I wouldn't place too much thought on the name "Bang & Whimper." No different than "Dark Light", Or "Deep Shadows and Brilliant Highlights"...just another yin/yang thing.
