Two months have passed and as promised Tarja Turunen returns to the Z7. Today, not like last time alone but with two support bands. One of them is from Finland and the other one hail from Norway, which means this will be a wonderful, Nordic evening with good music. As with her last visit the club seems to be almost sold out and many who were there two months ago have come again to feel the magic that Tarja has once before put into their hearts once more .
ASPERA The first band of the evening is from Skien, Norway. They are still very young, all of the boys were born in 1989 but they have already played over 40 gigs and it really shows. The guys give their all to convince the crowd and the girl's hearts already beat faster when they only look at the band. Singer Atle Pettersen wins everyone over with his powerful voice and his performance which is full of devotion. The debut album of the Norwegians will be published in the beginning of next year.
Kings of Modesty For the Finns of Kings of Modesty this tour with Tarja is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to promote their just released album "Hell & Highwaters". The band delivers a show with lots of power – they seriously improved their performance. It's just so much fun to watch the guys on stage because they simply do great music and show how much they enjoy being up there and giving their all. Singer Jason's voice is great tonight, strong and full of emotion he sings verse after verse. With songs like "Never Touched the Rainbow" and "Suicidal Mission" they get the Z7 crowd going and win over some new fans. Sadly this show is over way too soon and now it's time for the Queen of Hearts.
Check also the interview with the band!
Tarja Turunen Tarja enters the stage with a new look – violet highlights in her hair and a new outfit which we already know from Tarja. She opens the show with the song "Enough". Tarja proved to be a pro through and through because even though her mic stopped working during the song "My Winter Storm" she stayed calm and after a couple of minutes silences starts the song all over again with a new, fully functional microphone. With different outfits the lady paces over the stage and flirts here and there with her fellow musicians Max Lilja and guitarist Alex Scholpp, who are with her onstage on this "Final Storm" tour. On drums as usual Mike Terrana. At the end of the show Tarja climbs down from the stage and, with cellist Max Lilja and keyboarder Christian Kretschmar, goes to the middle of the crowd to perform the song "Montanas de Silencio". Tarja has never been so close to her fans during a show and with this emotional performance she wins over even more hearts that only beat for her. And so Tarja once again bestowed upon us an unforgettable concert and she is and will be our Queen of Hearts with a unique voice like a nightingale.
