    Tarja Turunen pt. III

    Y'all, hold my beer and let me tell you: The NYC show was INSANE. I had a M&G so I had to meet her as well and she was all I could have asked for. I walked up to her all shy and she was all loud like "C'MON!!!! GIMME A HUG!!" and I was like OK WOMAN!. She is SO sweet and kind in person it's crazy, my picture didn't come out right and she had no problem re-taking it and then taking another one just me and my friend. I got to give her a jacket I painted for her, which sadly I did not get to see her reaction for (but hope she loved!) since the whole crew was running out of time and so the M&G was a bit quicker than usual (other fans said you could talk to her for at least a couple of minutes on other cities, but I only got a rough minute). This affected the whole show since the openers took forever to soundcheck and then there were sound issues galore during the whole show, but it only made it more interesting and entertaining. The audience was electric, and it helped that there were a lot of latinos, so chants of "Ole Tarja!" and "Te amo!" rounded about the place continuously. I too was keeping my hopes low about her vocals but let me tell you, she sounds amazing nowadays! I still think it was a terrible choice to have her do ACT II so early on the tour, when she was still giving her first punches to the infamous chest voice. She SINGS. Even House of Wax sounded great and controlled. Overall an amazing amazing show and Tarja was incredible. I hope she comes back again soon!!!

    I only wish this album would have been recorded on this current year and not in 2016. Then, she was still trying to find her feet regarding that operatic/low-popular voice mix and she would have many misses live, she's still polishing it but she's sounding so much more better and balanced now! I'm sure she's gonna have it down by the time Act III comes around and she's gonna sound terrific! Also, losing my sh*t over meeting her and seeing her all for the first time in less than a month!!!

    OMG! Best Floorgasm in this whole tour. Maybe best Floorgasm ever in GLS? Either she was having an incredible voice day or she has made use of this break to get her voice back to top notch state. Not only was this whole belt amazing, but from what I've seen from the other songs of the show, she was singing insanely good on this date!!! Just what I needed today haha.

    I loved the video!!!! THAT is a performance.

    By vibe-wise I meant as in the exchange of overall energy between crowd and performers more than the actual performances, though if you ask me I personally still think her chest voice was more restrained on Woodstock than on Wacken and I can't forgive the drummer for screwing up the drum fills on Innocence during Wacken so performance-wise I still prefer that one too. I do wish the Wacken Church release was a thing though, but I'm guessing since it was mostly made up of covers that she didn't particularly care about giving it the DVD treatment, at least not as a show representing TSS, which is what Act II is comprised of. Maybe release it along with a DVD of the From Spirits And Ghosts... tour? Also, I'm hoping "art-film" or whatever doesn't mean something dizzy-ing like this trailer: I'm probs still getting the mediabook though

    The Floor thread

    I am so mad after watching this. She has this power in her and we got EFMB? Man....

    I know the concerts are very similar, but we are getting FOUR FILM SHOWS WITHIN A SAME RELEASE. I am especially excited about the Woodstock show, it's probably one of the best shows Tarja has played on her whole career vibe-wise and even though I've seen it a bit already, I want to see the professional treatment. The "Live-Art-Video" thing is making me a little dubious though, because now if it's not a visual delight or something out of the box then it's just gonna sound like she's inflating her own self too much. But I'm intrigued now so I guess it worked. Also, the NY thing is a show, and she's having another one in LA! I sadly was too late to get the NY M&G though, those sold out within like 2 days of the show going on sale But still excited over seeing her for the very first time!

    IDK if it's a front row thing, but I couldn't keep my eyes off the band. Of course I noticed the visuals and thought they gave a cool atmosphere, but It never got to the point where my eyes were going somewhere else?

    Isn't it weird how tuomas is so far in the back? Like, I thought that setup was an NA thing because of the size of the theaters, but now it seems like this is the layout for the rest of the tour, and it's just...awkward to me.

    Well, it may not be exactly be a thrill, but this is only the 3rd date of the tour where Amaranth was played, so that's a change we could say

    I actually thought the stage was gonna have more props! it's cool how (aside from the pyros) the vibe pretty much remains the same from the US shows. I wonder if they will expand the stage with something else for the stadium shows like they did on the last tour.

    I really liked Come Cover Me actually! However, I wouldn't mind trading it over for Dead To The World or Feel For you.

    So looks like the mexico gig is selling nicely and new sections have been opened in the arena, for what I can tell. Is NW perhaps becoming a worlwide arena act? I'm down!! (I still want the US shows to remain small with M&Gs though )

    I get you, it f*cks my mind how M&Gs in latinamerica can be more expensive than the ones in the US. These economies are struggling ones and, if anything, they should be the same prices as in the US, specially in Mexico where they're playing an arena Also, I visited the website and they have ticketing fees up to $55?! What is even going on there. Again, I am convinced this whole thing has to do with the promoters.

    I actually thought the joke was funny but whatevs. I don't really have a problem with "Floorgasm" since it doesn't really refer to her but to the listener. And I mean, after experiencing the famous note live (and I had the chance of having her hit that note perfectly on my date, it was actually one of the vids that someone used on a previous post here to defend her) I think the term was pretty apt, like my soul was leaving my body, as cheesy as it may sound haha. But yeah, again overall we love Floor and obviously it's was too hard for a singer to hit the same note on the same way note every night. My comment is more specifically on her phrasing than anything else.
