First Manowar show in England for... a long time...

Wooah... Battle Hymns in its entirety? i would even forgive Joey for including a lame speech, this should be quite epic!! :O
Kingface - 04.01.2011 at 20:39  
Would love to go to this, but I'm really struggling to find someone I can go with who can drive!
Dark Seraphim - 04.03.2011 at 05:08  
I shall be there, can't wait!!
Kingface - 26.03.2011 at 00:10  
Well for the longest time I was gonna be able to make this show, but a few hours ago I found out that was no longer the case.
Kingface - 26.03.2011 at 12:50  
Wow, now I CAN make the show again! Hopefully it'll stick this time.

i'm gonna "curb your enthusiasm" but i've seen Manowar twice, and watched a few of their concert performances, and i've noticed a pattern sadly: when they really want to put on a show and play only kickass material they can pretty much bring the whole place down, like in their record 5 hours performance in Kavarna or the Earthshaker Fest performance in 2005. but half of the times they put on fairly half-assed concerts, with superficial preparation, bad sound quality, gratuitous and meaningless bass solos, and weak setlists. i think (though i hope i'm wrong) that most of the concerts on this tour fall in the latter category.

Yeh, I've seen Manowar once and enjoyed it. I have seen the setlist for this Birmingham show, and it seemed pretty good - but I was just wondering what he thought of it having been there...
Dark Seraphim - 31.03.2011 at 20:55  
The gig was amazing. Manowar sounded fantastic and Eric's voice has never sounded better. It was an absolute pleasure to see and hear. They promised they would come back so lets hope it doesn't take as long this time.
Kingface - 31.03.2011 at 21:22  
I pretty much echo all of Dark Seraphim's thoughts. I've never heard a band sound so good live and the setlist was great, particularly chuffed that they opened with "Manowar" and also played "Fighting the World"!
