    This has to be one of the more interesting tour packages. I used to be really into Turisas back when they first made a mark on the Paganfest tour. I didn't hear great things about the last album; however, I'm sure they're still great live. This tour is just an odd combination of bands.

    Probably won't go because it's on a Thursday. I hate Stolen Babies, used to like Turisas (kind of burnt out of folk metal at the moment). If anything, i'd go for Firewind (their first 5 albums were great) but not being a fan of their latest two albums means I could probably do without seeing them live again.

    That is an odd pairing, but I'd like to see Turisas and Firewind is always good live.

    Oooh, DO WANT TO SEE. I've seen Stolen Babies and Firewind, but not Turisas yet.

    Definitely could take a pass on Stolen Babies, but Turisas and Firewind would be a good time.

    I don't get this lineup at all, but I would go just for Firewind.


    Stay metal. Never rust.

    it is actually a very smart line up....you get a variety of bands. If it was Firewind with some other 3rd rate power metal act they would be playing in front of 50 people a night. With the mix of genre's they will play in front of many many more.

    Well, Firewind's last tour had them out with some diverse acts (Nightrage and Arsis) and that didn't seem to help.

    I agree. I always prefer tours with more variety.

    So I'm going to this place tomorrow for the Wintersun show, I hope it's not the dump it appears to be on Google Street View.

    True, but when was the last time you heard anyone talk about TURISAS?
    You guys would know better than I, but do the kids still come out for them?

    The porta-johns in front are not a promising sign.

    Apparently the Paganfest run last year or whenever it was that had Turisas and Arkona did really really well.

    Yeah, its not my scene at all.
    It just seemed like a few years back when bands like that toured, there would be lots of talk.
    I never heard even one peep about that big package that featured Korpiklaani.

    Jason,

    You realize the Eluveitie/Wintersun tour is selling out dozens of shows right?
