    I clearly meant there was 2 of us from the forum...>_>

    But honestly I thought you were somehow affiliated with the band or record label or some sort of gig/venue company =O

    Sorry =P

    As mentioned, it was kinda awkward. Everyone was kinda quiet, they bitched about Sonata Arctica, talked about getting strangely translated messages from Japanese fans.

    Nygard wasn't there because he'd got hammered the night before and disappeared, the last they'd heard he was trying to get into a taxi. Olli did joke that he may have run off to Amsterdam =P

    Hah, well yeah! I suppose we have to get our press lady to arrange these happenings later on and have all sorts of topic lists printed out for people. Not everybody is great standup comedian like me :Smug:

    People, ask your fucking questions aloud if you have some, don't bitch on the forum afterwards! Anyway, thanks for those who came there on 14 hrs notice - we appreciated it.

    Guess we'll still have to intimidate some Scottish or Irish fans during the next days.

    Lol I'm not bitching, I was kinda quiet 'cause I was in awe :). Unfortunately I forgot to pester you to play Miklagard Overture until after you'd left =(

    And btw I remembered the 5th place I saw you, it was at Camden's Electric Ballroom with Alestorm and Norther :D

    But I gotta say thanks to you all for taking time out to meet the fans, even though there was 3 of us.

    And you especially Olli because you kept the conversations going :D

    It's cool. I am with the band. ha! :kickass:
    I just really appreciate Olli setting it up, he said it was hard to do because he doesn't know what is in the area. Thank you!

    Just too bad I can't go back to Canada and catch them in Toronto in December!

    By the way, I'm writing another mini-tour diary on a friend's website www.shutterblast.net/

    As requested, it goes by the theme "the härskier the better". Won't bother translating that anyway, bwah. Also check out her photos of Turisas, taken on Euro tour, this summer and this fall. Epic! (if the photos of Astoria suck balls, it is more because of the supporter-gets-shit-lights deal than her photoshop skills!).

    Nice, but surely you could come and tour england again, to promote your new dvd, surely thats reason enough. Thats kinda like an album, it has a new song on it, sorta.

    i guess I need to say I love you Olli (no, no worries- I do not wanna marry you because of that now LOL) for those tour-diaries - always makes a smile appear on my face, mostly the perfect thing to make me laugh though I am busy like hell ;)

    So after 3 weeks, 7 shows and over 1600 miles I'm home for the final time :(
    it's been an amazing tour, loved every single show, but glasgow was definately the best!!!
    There has been a few technical difficulties for both bands, but they both, at every single gig, put their all in and gave brilliant performances! Couldn't have asked for more from the tour, definately looking forward to the DVD!!!!
