Amaranthe Checks In With Kamelot Tour Blog

Amaranthe has posted the following new tour blog online through Crank It Up about their current tour dates with Kamelot:

"Hey all, Olof from Amaranthe checking in from Tampere Finland, in the middle of our Scandinavian tour with Kamelot. This is mainly a swedish site, but I will keep it in English for our international readers. This is Amaranthe's first ever tour, and it couldn't really have gone better so far! We started out in our hometown of Gothenburg, playing a packed Trädgårn, not bad for our second gig ever! Our clean singers, Jake and Elize have been out on the road for more than two weeks with Kamelot, and after seeing them perform on big stages together with Kamelot, it was nice to finally to join them on the trek!

"To kick things off properly we ended the first night by bringing the Kamelot dudes to our favourite local bar, Rockbaren. After a late night and an early morning plus some travleing we found ourselves in the very awesome venue Tyrol in Stockholm, constructed to imitate the interior of an alp cabin - but an alp cabin that can fit 1500 people :)

"Stockholm crowd was great as well, and it's quite fun to see the look on people's faces as we take on the stage and more and more singers walks on. At this point we are unknown to most people, and we are all really enjoying convincing people that Amaranthe is the best thing since sliced bread - you don't really get anything for free, but it makes it all the more exciting when you finally get that crowd roaring. Also here we had a pretty awesome after party at the classic rockbar Anchor bar, after being picked up in style with a long white limousine, cheers to the Holmqvist brothers from Djurgården hockey team for that!

"Day three we took the Finlandsfärja (classic Sweden - Finland cruise, which usually consists of drinking copious amounts of alcohol during the 16 hour trip. We took it pretty cool, and instead enjoyed the pretty weird fauna of people, such as stupendously drunken gypsies 'singing' Finnish songs, less-than-talented troubadours performing before a non-existent crowd, and also the unmentionable screams of Mr. C*ck echoing through the hallways of Ms. Gabriella - But more about him in a later blog :)

"Playing at the Nosturi in Helsinki was no less than a pleasure (as you can see in the picture :), and it was great for me personally to finally get the opportunity to play in Finland after all these years! Cool venue and great crowd response, and we even had our own fans waiting since 9 AM in the morning to ensure front row places - big thanks to you, people like you make all this crazy traveling worth it! As previosly said, Tampere tonight! We'll be back with a brand new blog, so check back soon!"
