GRAVE DIGGER frontman Chris Boltendahl has issued a new update from the band's current European tour with THERION:
Here is The Reaper on tour again...
I would like to clarify a few things regarding the tour. We didn't like the club in Essen (Germany) that much, especially because we were only able to build up half of our entire show. Pyros were prohibited and there was no room on stage for our great backdrop. Unfortunately, we got no information about that ahead of the show.
In my opinion the entrance fee of €27 is justifiable. The tour offers two headliner shows full-length, and a great support band (SABATON). Have you ever paid attention to the merchandise prices? If you go to IRON MAIDEN or MANOWAR you will pay €55 for a ticket, and €35 for a shirt !!!
I've already explained the situation with the starting time of our set.
Yesterday we rocked Strasbourg in front of 700 people. The set started in a comfortable way and evolved into an absolute METAL UP THE ASS show. The show was a lot of fun.
Apropos, we'll change our setlist every night!"
Cheers out of the tourbus.
Yours Chris - Uncle Reaper !!!
