Wacken Open Air XXI

Wacken (Germany)

(Panasonic DMC-TZ7)

Unfortunately Arch Enemy was playing parallel to Tarja on the Wacken Open Air. As I would be watching Arch Enemy later that year at Belgium on Metal Female Voices Fest VIII I preferred Tarja.
During the sunset the Finnish provided with new and old songs (including Nightwish classics like "Wishmaster") a powerful show. Everytime again impressive: her outstanding voice. The only fly in the ointment in my opinion was the Whitesnake cover version of "Still Of The Night" which did not really fit to her voice.
Otherwise it was a great concert with a Tarja being in a really good mood.
