you could just jump directly to their new live cd, at least for their set list. I saw them live not that long ago, and it was a similar set list. The last chunk is obviously the live favs that folks have mentioned already

its on Spotify too btw, skip track 1, i dont think its a great opener and not on my list of songs i'd make a new BG listener check out

its also Hansi's birthday when they play the show, and they claimed they will be shit faced, so there you go. cant fucking wait !

If they only get an hour (which is standard for SG) then they might stick to a best of set as Imaginations is nearly that long played live, probably only give enough time for 1 more track and as stated it wasn't that big over here at the time. If they get 75 mins like Sabaton or 90 like Avantasia (the last two power metal bands to SG) then the full Imaginations is on I reckon.

I have a suspicion they might get 90 like Avantasia, particularly if they do 'Imaginations From the Other Side' in full, as they are a pretty damn big band in this type of Metal. They may have demanded a 90 minute slot.

I think that's the least Bloodstock could do given how much they have been shafting power metal fans in recent years
