Helsinki Meetup Oct 10-11 (with Bob and Leanne!)

Postby jarkko » Tue Oct 07, 2008 8:39 am

We have organized some get-togethers for Friday and Saturday (Leonard's concert is on Friday). I have emailed complete details to all who got tickets through our special tickets sales (110 tickets!), but if there are any who bought their tickets directly through Lippupalvelu or Menolippu and don't have my email, PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR MEET-UP DETAILS at ja@nebula.fi

Eli jos olet tulossa perjantaina Leonardin konserttiin ja haluaisit tavata meitä muita aktivisteja konsertin jälkeen, mailaa minulle lisätietoja varten. Konsertin jälkeen yöllä käymme drinkillä Rautatieaseman vieressä Ravintola Vltavassa, ja lauantaina mennään porukalla lounaalle Ravintola Greciaan Katajanokalle (kello 13). Selvyyden vuoksi: Leonard ei ole mukana, tämä on fanitapaaminen!

How did Mr. Metzger like the concert? Did he think it was as good as in Berlin the week before (difficult to think it could be any better than what we saw in Berlin!)

They both (Leanne and Bob) found the concert and the response from the audience very good, and so did Leonard. We Finns were once supposed to be shy to show our feelings, but nowadays, and especially last Friday, we just let it go... We welcomed Leonard with standing ovation, and many more were to follow, of course including Hallelujah, and after the second set people rushed forward and filled the empty space between the first row and the stage. We listened to all remaining songs standing and giving huge applauses. Leonard got big red roses from several fans who threw the flowers to him onto the stage.
He really captivated the Finnish spectators. The concert was almost like a religious experience for many. I was also happy to note that people knew very well the songs ... it did not take many notes until a new song was identified and welcomed with applause. I recall that in 1993 the Finnish audience almost missed the joke in Tower of Song ("I was born with the gift of a golden voice") but now it created immediate and loud feedback!
