Review and pics by EvilG
It’s not often you get to see one of your favorite bands for the FIRST time. Such was the case with my trip to see Stratovarius in Toronto.
Before we dive into the review, a note about the format… As you may notice, the pics, while passable, are not incredible like the ones you’ll find in most of our other live reviews. This is because I do not usually photograph live shows since I live in the wastelands where no bands visit and as such have no real experience taking live photos. As well, even though I did have a photo pass, there was no special front of stage area to get up close to try for awesome shots.
Lastly, this review will not only cover the performances but will review the experience and treatment that we received as VIP ticket holders.
