I'm going to make a bold prediction, and say that "Open Your Life" will be played live in the coming tour! Sascha has been featuring that song a lot in his Instagram stories! :tup

Some other deep cuts, I would like them to dust of include:
King for a 1000 Years (Obviously)
Midnight Sun
A Handful of Pain
Twilight of the Gods
Invisible Man
The Departed (Sun is Going Down)

Can't believe the Finland show is still a year away! It was supposed to be in spring 2020, if I remember correctly.

Open Your Life and A Handful of Pain would be incredible.
Everyone else, except Wolfking is wrong.

I pulled up his instagram, but I couldn't find any reference. Can you post a link? Not because I don't believe you, I'm interested in seeing it.


would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related
Winger Theater Forums................or WTF.  ;D

If it's been posted in the stories, they go away after 24 hours....
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

Yeah, it was posted in the stories, so they are not readable anymore. I remember him posting stories about his new signature guitars, and quite a few of them featured "Open Your Life".

This could be a total shot in the dark, and mean nothing. :lol We'll see when the information about the setlist goes to Setlist.fm. First show is supposed to be today!

Yes tonight!

I wonder if there are any active Helloween forums where the songs might be updated to by someone at the show.

So, there's a setlist up on Setlist FM, which is weird because it's only 9pm in Manchester right now.
It is stated as a "stage setlist"..so maybe someone has seen it.

Skyfall
Eagle Fly Free
Mass Polution
Future World
Save Us
Where The Rain Grows
(unknown)-Kai Medley
Forever And One
Straight Out Of Hell
First Time
How Many Tears

Encore:
A Tale The Wasn't Right
Power
Keeper Of The Seven Keys

Encore 2:
I Want Out





What do you think? Is it bullshit?

Two shocks..
No Best Time, considering it's the thingy being released in a couple of weeks, and First Time? No way they play anything from Chameleon.

I wonder if someone mistook Best Time for First Time. That seems way more plausable.

I could do without Forever and One again.  Mass Pollution isn't the greatest track from the new album to highlight.  Where the Rain Grows and Straight Out of Hell are a couple of couple deep cuts.  Save Us though is a great pick.

I'm going to keep refreshing it. The Kai medley has been updated to be:
Metal Invaders / Victim of Fate / Gorgar / Ride the Sky / Heavy Metal in the Law

I still think it'll be Best Time instead of First Time.

 :lol  Yeah, no way they are playing First Time........surely.

Gorgar is a fucking cool song, always really liked that one.  And seeing some of VOF come back out is insane.  Would have liked Starlight instead of MI or HMITL however.

Yup, as expected, First Time has been edited to Best Time with Dr. Stein added in after it.

So this seems to be what we have..


Skyfall
Eagle Fly Free
Mass Polution
Future World
Save Us
Where The Rain Grows
Kai Medley: Metal Invaders / Victim of Fate / Gorgar / Ride the Sky
Heavy Metal Is The Law
Forever And One
Straight Out Of Hell
Best Time
Dr. Stein
How Many Tears

Encore:
A Tale The Wasn't Right
Power
Keeper Of The Seven Keys

Encore 2:
I Want Out






Apparently HMITL was played in full..

The Medley on Pumpkins United was Starlight/Ride The Sky/Judas/HMITL

At least they switched it out.

And the Kai Medley was the best part of the show. Holy shit!

I didn't give a lot of time to Pumpkins United, so completely forgot Starlight was in there.  Fair enough adding Gorgar and VOF then.

So, the three new songs are Skyfall, Mass Pollution and Best Time. Interesting. Only three.

I think 3 songs is a fine number.  Mass Pollution as I said is strange IMO.

You basically had two Deris only tracks, Mass Pollution and Cyanide to choose from. Both are my two least faves on the album.
I really expected Out For The Glory to be played. It would've worked in the spot held by Eagle Fly Free.

Footage!!!

Kai Medley

Future World

Best Time
So happy they gave Sasha a solo section. Fucking nice!

Dr. Stein

A Tale The Wasn't Right


I have to say that Helloween looked like a band that had been off the road for two years. They needed a shot of energy.


Hammerfall
We Make Sweden Rock

I don't consider Hammerfall a great live band but they were UP for this gig.

Skyfall/Eagle Fly Free

Looks like my "Open Your Life" hunch was wrong. :P

Oh well, a good setlist regardless. They are playing it a bit safe, although I believe that they are going to rotate some new songs in, that we have not seen yet.

Only 3 songs from the "Self Titled" is a surprise.

Thumbs up for "Save Us" and "Where The Rain Grows". :tup

As soon as I heard "Best Time", I knew it was going to be a live banger!! Can't wait to see some pro shot footage of it.

I'm actually excited that they played Save Us. I've been wanting to hear Kiske sing that live, and now it's happened.

Full London show!

 :hefdaddy :hefdaddy :hefdaddy



Just finished watching this....

Phenomenal show. The band seemed much looser than the previous night in Manchester.

Love the drum riser and the stage. They make good use of the platforms on each side of the stage.

As much as I wasn't crazy about the transition from Skyfall to Eagle Fly Free, I thought the Skyfall reprise at the end of How Many Tears was awesome.

Loved the interplay between Kai and Sascha. That's the kind of thing that makes this reunion believable and it makes me feel all warm inside. ;D

Kiske and Andi are so strong on their own, but what's amazing is how different they are from each other, but also how well they complement each other. They are phenomenal performers.

When I saw them on the Pumpkins United tour, the one guy I was most impressed with was Dani. He was in total control of the whole concert. The show ran through him, and it still does.

Markus is a tremendous bassist.

Power is one of the best tracks in their catalog.

I'll have a watch through this later.  I'm interested to see how Skyfall is as an opener.  I think Out for the Glory though would have been a fabulous opener.

Yeah, I agree, but for the concert, I think you have to get both singers out for the first number.
Skyfall is a great opener, one I actually hadn't considered.

Halloween was fucking awesome as an opener on the last tour. That why I thought King Of 1000 Years would work great. Would love to hear Kiske and Deris together on that.

Yeah, that's what I figured.  Maybe if they didn't do the Pumpkins United tour this may have been on the cards to re-introduce Kiske but Skyfall makes perfect sense.

I hope they rotate "Out For The Glory" and "Fear of the Fallen" into the setlist at some point. "Mass Pollution" is not a bad song, but I would rather hear those two instead.

I checked Skyfall and Eagle on that London vid last night and the band are fucking tight.  Even guitar wise, it was nice.  Andi sounds incredible, he really does.  Kiske sounds slightly underdone but there's moments where he sounds amazing.

I prefer Fear of the fallen over Skyfall but I can see how Skyfall is a great opener.
Cool stage setup with Kiske and Andi on each side and the drums a mile up as usual.  :laugh:
As a drummer i've always wondered what it's like to be so seperated from your bandmates like that but I guess you get used to it.
