Oddly enough, Maurizio Guarini was playing one when Goblin played here late last year.

I was pretty shocked.

I noticed that here as well (Boston). Great show though. Suspiria was f!@#ing WICKED!

I got the VIP tickets so we got to go in for sound check and meet the band. As soon as they started playing I honestly teared up. Without a doubt the most moving concert I have ever been to. Especially for a band I NEVER expected to see play live. It was pretty mind blowing and incredibly humbling to see these guys play all their hits live and barely a single mistake in a 1-1/2hr set.

You could tell they were also genuinely humbled that any of us gave a shit. They kept profusely thanking us in between songs. Seemed like really great people. I, too, never thought I'd get to see them play!

Totally didn't matter what they were using for keys, either. Shit sounded phenomenal. And LOUD!

That's a great clip! I love the tank and rocket launcher props in the back. The rocket launcher even had rockets in it!

Perhaps PBS will replace that awful Celtic Thunder show that they run during pledge month with this.

Goblin are true proof that gear doesn't matter in the hands of great musicians. Which you ppl can't seem to understand :D

They had the Suspiria+concert thing in Oslo too this week.

Well, I didn't laughed. Nothing about North Korea is funny. I know it may looks hilarious, but in fact it isn't. Sorry to spoil the mood.

You're right. We in the USA really take a lot of things for granted.

I was just more surprised because Simonetti was using a predominantly vintage setup, aside from the Voyager.

I recommend a thorough reading about North Korea before making such comparitions. Obviously, you don't know what you are talking about.
