But probably more professional than Manowar themselves.

It was a bit odd not seeing him there I thought. Same with Amanda Somerville. I'd assumed they'd be staples of Avantasia tours.

Loved when Adrienne went from angel voiced soprano to full on thrash metal vocals on Book Of Shadows. Geoff Tate did well in his appearances, Ronnie Adkins always smashes it, and Bob Catley is such a nice old grandad....Jorn Lande seems to have aged by 97 years since last time I saw him though, and I'm not sure Eric Martin is really suited to them, I wish they hadn't played that bloody Maniac track! Still, an awesome gig though.
Adrienne is a great vocalist. I was really surprised when I realized a couple of days before the show that she was on the Avantasia tour. Last year I "discovered" her from watching videos of the Jamming in International Water thing, so checked our her band Seven Spires.
Bob Cately is hilarious. Those hand gestures are all over the place.
