The show was beyond amazing and Jonne still put on a unforgettable performance on and off stage :p Don't miss a show Bc of the minor set back! The other guitarists shreds and Jonne moves the crowds energy with his passionate vocals and his sexy stage moves. If you have the opportunity to see them on this tour GO! It was so moving I drove six hours to see them perform a second time! Don't pass it up Korpiklaani Kicks Ass!
