You guys definitely have me curious what was so bad about the show. Was it just being there firsthand to witness what people have been saying about the band all tour long, or did something happen on top of that to make it an even worse gig than usual?

Sad to hear that the gig sucked. Exactly my thoughts after when I saw them at Miljoona Rock. Looking forward to your reviews too. I'm also curious about the reason what made the gig bad? Ville? Sound? Dumb people in the audience?

Ville and the boys aren't kids anymore and they've been touring for years. They can't be excellent during every gig and that's a sad fact. In my opinion Ville sings better nowadays than the drunken Ville era in 2004 for example. But he's just playing too much with screams (voice cracks) and low oooooh things.

I loved the gig the reason I didn’t enjoy the start is the crowd. As I mentioned earlier but would like to know why others didn’t enjoy.

WOW, did you hear Join Me from Prague or Leipzig? I mean i didnt hear it from Berlon, Hamburg and dont remember Russian versions, but just listened to my Prague recording and checked youtube of Leipzig and Join Me from both these shows is AMAZING, WOW, i mean WOW. Ville sang it so perfectly, emotionally and wow i am touched, really just listen to Join me from Prague , his vocals are simply amazing, i think i never heard more beautiful version of Join me than this

I thought In Joy & Sorrow sounded amazing in Prague.

Is anyone (who isn't attending) still looking forward to Helldone? Realistically, we can probably expect them to play everything that's been played on the tour so far (like Stigmata, Sleepwalking, Pretending, Razorblade Kiss, etc.) Maybe they'll bring back Resurrection as well since they'll probably do a couple of encores and there's no curfew to worry about, but more than likely it won't be the extravaganza I/we were hoping it would be.

For historical purposes, I hope we get at least one solid full recording - which I'm sure we will. I've actually been surprised at the audio quality of some of the videos I've seen from the tour on YouTube. For entertainment purposes, though, I just can't see them doing anything or playing anything I'd be interested in right now. Maybe further down the road I'll get an itch and I'll scratch it by listening to the show and reminisce about days gone by. The band has sounded their usual selves as of late, but it's still nothing I haven't heard a million times before, and done better, honestly. But I'm hoping still. Maybe they'll play an old cover or have a guest appearance that's worth checking out like they did that time with the dude from Cathedral. I'm not expecting anything, though.

I know there's a separate thread for ink, but since all eyes are on this thread these days, as well as this is also a farewell of sorts, felt it appropriate to post here.

Got this done after the final 3 shows in California. My gf and I both felt getting "branded" was the perfect way to cap off a week of bittersweet celebration.  She got a simple heartagram on her wrist. I had already jumped in 10 years ago with the BABL cover image.
