    So, Savatage is playing Wacken tonight...and I knew from the start that I wouldn't have a snowball's chance of seeing it. What would be a cure for my broken heart? Glenn convincing O'Neill to allow them to play a set at ProgPower! :cry:

    Is Wacken streaming on the internet again this year?

    I was just watching the stream. Had to turn it off until the next band. Mambo Kurt? Really? :zzz: I mean... Looks like its time to slog on over to get some beer, brats, and drain the lizard if you're at Wacken right now.

    The TSO and Savatage gigs are happening.. now? In an hour? but they're not being streamed today.

    They'll be shown in part on Saturday on the 3sat stream.

    I've been following it a little via Twitter, but the clips are very short. From what I can tell it looks to be a top notch production. Hopefully, I can catch the highlights stream when they run that.

    Dude I'm here in Nashville TN, and despite the statement that the stream is only available in Europe, I am able to watch live. A friend in AZ was watching too. Uli Jon Roth was awesome BTW. It shouldn't matter, but FWIW he was on a Mac and I'm on Linux.



    UPDATE: It seems the Wacken IT guys figured something out, and so my Wacken live stream was denied today because of country restrictions. However, there is a way around it. Go download the TOR browser from here:

    https://www.torproject.org/download/download-easy.html.en

    You will need Flash enabled. For anonymity reasons Flash is disabled in Tor. To enable Flash, go into your Tor browser's menu, choose "Add-ons" then choose "Plugins" and enable plugins, and then enable Shockwave/Flash. You can test to see if you have it all set by going to this site to test your Flash version:

    https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html

    If Adobe says you have flash enabled in your Tor browser, then go to Wacken Live and watch a live stream with your Tor browser:

    https://www.wacken.com/live/

    Now, if it still says your country is not allowed, then restart Tor browser to obtain a Tor exit node in a country that doesn't have Wacken's stupid restrictions and try again. Simply asking for a "New Identity" will not work because Wacken's live stream site checks for a cookie to see if you were previously denied. Restarting the Tor browser will delete any old cookies when it closes.

    Enjoy Wacken.
