Santiago, Chile

22.2.08 Santiago





Kertakaikkiaan henkeäsalpaava kokemus. Bändi on soittanut täällä viimeksi 2002. Eli tämä kyseessä oleva Etelä-Ameriikan kiertue on myös Henrikin ensimmäinen. Yleisö huusi niin lujaa, että kun mentiin soittamaan encoreita, luulin unohtaneeni korvatulpat pois. Täytyi oikein tarkistaa. Kyllähän ne korvissa olivat. Mekkala oli vaan niin kova. Meinasi olla jossain kohdassa vähän tippa linsissä. Oli vaan niin mykistävä kokemus, että ei oikein sanat riitä kertomaan.





Suomen suurlähetystöstä oli porukkaa katsomassa. Ja pari muutakin Chilessä lomailevaa suomalaista. Ruoka oli hyvää ja keikkapaikka tosi asiallinen. Tavattiin muutama onnekas keikan jälkeen. Kaikkia halukkaita me ei täällä enää pystytä ikäväksemme tapaamaan.





Keikkapaikalla tarjoiltiin ruokaa vielä keikan jälkeenkin ”ravintelin” puolella. Siinä pari paikallista ala-aste ikäistä poikaa pelasi Guitar Heroa. Henkkahan päätti haastaa ne. Eihän se pärjännyt alkuunkaan. Ensin alkaa pienemmilleen ja sitten ei edes pärjää...Henkalle pitäis olla sellainen Keytar Hero-peli. No, uni tuli aika nopeasti hotellille päästyä. Huomenna jatkuu...

What a breath taking experience. The band has played here last time in 2002. So this is the first South American tour for Henrik as well. The crowd was so loud that when we got to the encores I thought that I´ve forgotten to put my ear plugs in. I had to check it and they were in my ears. People were just so loud. At some point I think my eyes wet…This experience just left me quite speechless. The words are not enough.





There were some people from the Finnish embassy to see and meet us. And also some other Finnish people. We met a few lucky fans after the show. We can´t meet everybody unfortunately.





There was some food served for us even after the show in this “restaurant” area. There were a couple of kids playing Guitar Hero. Henrik decided to challenge them. Of course he was beaten by the kids…Henkka should have a Keytar Hero game. After we got to the hotel it was pretty soon the time to hit the sack. Later dudes…

Wow! I think that here in Brazil the vibe will be very similar, because you guys only came here five years ago... Omg, I´m so exited!
I must say that I love guitar hero, and I´m quite good at it, but I´m not so good playing the guitar(I don´t play it at all x).
The best for you all.
