Friends, The Final Countdown tour popularity continues with one of the Italian shows at Milan Alcatraz now completely SOLD OUT! Also due to demand we have moved the Rome venue to the larger capacity Atlantico - all tickets for the Orion are obviously still valid and Atlantico tickets are available via ticketone.it and all usual outlets and agents. All other shows are selling fast so please buy tickets now to avoid any disappointment. We would really like to thank all our fans for a great response to this tour and sold out shows shows already in Stockholm, London and now Milan - See you all out there! // Europe
And in the meantime the gig in Milan has been officially declared "sold out"!!!! After their hometown Stockholm and the cradle of Rock London that will be reached by a lot of foreign fans too, here comes Milan!!!! I think that was an excellent response from the Italian fans!
Hope to see you as many of you as possible out there!!!!
It was a fantastic concert in Rome! The band was in a great mood and shape and full of energy and so was the crowd!The people around me seemed to enjoy both parts of the show but during the Final Countdown it was definately a blast!I was impressed by some younger people that sang along word by word all songs from albums! The stage show was great though I have to say I was not paying much attention to the videos,maybe because I don't get the chance to see Europe in the flesh very often, so I concentrated on that.I also had a perfect view of John Norum and I was once again completely blown away by his amazing playing! All the guys were great,Joey was as usual interactive with the crowd and came down to the first row during Light It Up driving the audience even more crazy.The only distraction was when during Danger On The Track some guys got too excited and the security guy had to bring them back to order.Overall it was a great night,I enjoyed every moment of it and I feel very lucky I could be there! I 'm also very happy I got to meet Stefania and Michaela Italy and also another friend from Spain that was there with her daughter. I also have to say that I enjoyed Tax The Heat's set very much!Their songs sounded much better live and they had a great attitude on stage. Finally,on a more personal note ,but I feel I can share this here in this forum.On the way back home I couldn't help remembering when my older brother bought me The Final Countdown album for a present many years ago.I could only listen to it when he let me borrow his cassette player.So I played it loud in my room with the door closed so I wouldn't bother the rest of the family and imagine I was in a Europe concert where all songs from TFC were played as it was all of Europe I knew back then.And after many years, on a Saturday night Europe played this imaginery concert for real!That felt great! Stein thanks for the videos,they remind me of this beautiful night with Europe!
