A bit more than week ago Jon and I went on a trip to Barcelona to celebrate his birthday in the same way we celebrated mine a few months ago: going on a concert. Going on a trip together is always perfect and concerts are something that we both enjoy.
In March we went to see Avatar and now, in December, Nightwish.
I cannot say much about the concert; I hardly took pictures or videos since I prefered to enjoy the moment. It was long and intense, a worthy concert to commemorate and celebrate their musical career in a beautiful and studied compilation.
It was a great show. The staging was perfect, with flamethrowers and fireworks whose heat was felt from far away. There was an amazing light show and a video that was playing in the background and that accompanied each song.
It’s true that it lacked the excitement of Avatar’s concert -it may be because of the huge dimensions of the concert hall or maybe due to the emotion that Johannes himself felt in March of being in Barcelona- but it was definitely worth it.
I can only say that we left the room with an intense body pain -back and legs above all- a sign of how intense it was (or maybe just a sing that we are getting older).
Either way, it’s well worth that pain in order to enjoy live music!
We are already waiting for January to go again to Barcelona, this time to see Powerwolf.
Just in case someone is curious about the band I leave here my favorite song of them which, unfortunately, wasn’t on the concert setlist. Lets see if you like it!
