    I haven't seen Blind Guardian yet, so I am excited, assuming that their setlist is nice and not just new album/Nightfall stuff. I gotta hear some Follow the Blind, Tales from the Twilight World, and Somewhere Far Beyond material at least.

    I haven't heard Grave Digger. They good?

    If I can get a ticket I fucking going :cool:

    Grave Digger. I first heard them on the local metal radio show back in 1984. Bought HBD on the vinyl not long after (Banzai Records!).

    Yeah. Get Heavy Metal Breakdown Yoda.

    I hope you're joking but if not, I find them to be one of the more consistent metal bands out there. No, they don't reinvent the wheel much but they always have memorable stuff. Only album of theirs I wasn't a fan of was the second to last one they did.

    As far as I know both bands do a great job of spanning their whole careers, mixing up the old with the new. I'm not a huge Grave Digger fan by any means, but seeing them will be very cool. It's going to be a killer show.

    BG don't usually go too deep.
    I think last time the only one from the first two was Valhalla.

    Yoda - GD = consistent heavy power metal with a vocalist who actually has balls!

    The BG/GD show is at The Concord? Isn't that where the ceiling collapse happened (circa Manowar)? And lol @ the reviews of that place and it's security.

    Still... Haven't seen either band and would like to. Will have to think on this one.

    As for Grave Digger, my favorite album of theirs is still Rheingold. Check it out, Yoda.

    Rheingold is the only one I think is good.

    Will be my 4th time seeing both bands, will be there with bells on etc.

    All the BG set lists I've seen have been great. Here's what I've seen them play:

    Valhalla (once with Kai Hansen!)
    Majesty
    Welcome to Dying
    Lost in the twilight hall
    Lord of the rings
    Script for my requiem
    And the story ends
    And then there was silence
    Fly
    Bards song
    Mirror mirror
    Barbara Ann
    Voice in the dark
    Sacred
    Tanelorn
    Past and future secret
    Last candle
    Time what is time
    Traveller in Time
    Banish from sanctuary
    Into the storm
    Journey through the dark
    Bright eyes
    Nightfall
    Time stands still

    There do a fantastic job of varying their set lists on tour. Go see them! You won't regret it.

    It's the same place. Don't let that scare you though. I've been there twice the last month, and I'd have to say it's an awesome venue. Great sound and not a bad spot to stand. My ONLY complaint is their drinking prices. Had a Jack and Coke and it cost me 9 bucks.

    God damnit, looks like I'm getting fucked on the trainride in. I'm not spending any more than normal prices for a beer.

    He sounds like Grover from Sesame Street. Surely I'm not the only one who's noticed this?
