Only Helloween would make the code WOOSTA. That's just classic. I lived in that state for three years, and I cracked up every time someone said that town's name.

Woburn is even better!

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find the code for the LA show....

I spent $6 to join the Knotfest website to get the code and it appears they never bothered to post it. $6 down the drain...

Hey, try using PUMPKINS (for the MD show at least)

Yeah, I had checked the Knotfest site a little before the presale ended and that indeed was the code. Was able to score tix for NY and MD with it. Thanks for posting that. If I had seen it earlier in the day, I would have definitely used it.

Well, I'm PUMP(kin)ED.

Back to back nights of power metal goodness with Helloween. Managed to score good seats for LA and great seats for San Fran. I couldn't pass on LA. So excited to finally see Kiske and Hansen on stage as part of Helloween doing the Keeper 1 and 2 material. Been a diehard since 88!  :metal

You know that a mark of a great song is if TAC hates it with a special passion.

Whereabouts is your seat for the LA show?

Center section, row Q, on the aisle. Was going to go closer on the side, but decided to go with the clearest view and probable better sound. A friend is flying in for both LA and SF with me. And the choices for two seats together over the weekend, after the ticket sales were open for a bit, was limited. But still, LA will be great. The best seats are our SF seats though. Dead center, front row of the loge at The Warfield. Totally clear view.

I toyed for a minute getting the floor/pit in LA. But remembering how bad the crowd was (as in obnoxious) for Fates Warning in Hollywood a few years back, I opted for seats. I'm too old (and way too short) to deal with pointless drama and tall dudes blocking my view.  :lol

WOW!

Will. Not. Watch. I want to see "Skyfall" for myself live in June (and hopefully as much Keeper 1 and Keeper 2 material as possible).

Well, it was just the opening track of the show, and it was amazing. I've watched a lot of their tour already.
Kiske was struggling for a bit a month or so ago, but he's much stronger here.

Oh, I know. I just want to experience it for myself. I'm glad you posted it though. Hyped up!

If the setlist is carried over to 2023, I'll be pleased. Five from Keeper 2, one from Keeper 1, and Skyfall. I'm good with that. Would like one more from Keeper 1, but I'll take this.

Just ordered my Christmas gift which was...



HELLOWEEN TICKETS!!!!


I'm actually excited to see Hammerfall. They did a lot to get me back into metal after taking a break for my kids' early years. They also kicked a lot of other bands' asses to get back into gear.
I know 60% of the band has changed since Legacy/Renegade, but I'm thrilled to see Joacim Cans live.
