Curitiba! Due to the severe hailstorm we simply couldn’t finish the show. We really tried but finally the electricity went and it was no longer safe on stage. It was the first time since 1986 we did not play The Final Countdown at a major show! But you guys were great in the audience and we will do our best to return again. All the best // Europe
And it's good that EUROPE chose to err on the side of caution here. It's better to be safe from violent weather than taking risks in pissing off Mother Nature, who can be in the foulest of moods sometimes. o.o
I agree with you, raginronic. Better safe than sorry.
Setlist: Walk The Earth The Siege Rock the Night Scream of Anger Last Look at Eden Ready or Not War of Kings Carrie Nothin' to Ya Superstitious [The song was stopped during the "No Woman No Cry" snippet due to hailstorm.]
Cherokee and The Final Countdown were not played due to the hailstorm.
What was the gig in '86 where they didn't play The final countdown? Just curious..
I think they meant it was the first time they hadn't played the song at a major show since the release of the TFC single in early 1986, a couple of months before the first leg of the Final Countdown tour.
