    the magazine states half nine, which means 20:30 in finnish, not 21:30

    This is what I can remember. Maybe missing song or two, and order is not 100% Setlist: Reunited, nowhere, sunshine, caffeine, evidence, surprise, last cup, poker/chinese, cuckoo, easy, ashes, midlife, introduce, gentle, aggressive, epic, just a man. encore: chariots/strip, grave. 2nd encore: joke, we care.

    They played Digging The Grave after Stripsearch during the first encore! Patton was clearly having trouble remembering the lyrics and he did mess up a few times. He was shrugging and looking troubled which was kinda funny 😀

    Incredible show! Helsinki got a new nickname from Patton and Roddy: Helstinky.

    75 db?????????
    How is that even possible at a rock concert??

    That must have put a major damper on the show!?

      No damper noticed yesterday 😉 The concert area was situated right in the Helsinki city centre with residential buildings next to it, so I can see the authorities’ point in restricting the noise level. Most people were wearing ear plugs anyway, and when I took mine off every once in a while, the noise from the crowd and the sound were overwhelming. To be honest, I don’t see the point in developing tinnitus when you can have an amazing show with 75 db.

      The 75 dB limit is set for sound pressure levels measured at the nearest residential building, so the levels close to the stage are likely to be higher.

    Hope they do digging the grave tomorrow at the Hove festival. Love the Helsinki snippets on youtube. Thanks to everybody contributing!

    Mike did a flip in the end of Just a man (or was it Digging the grave)? I was sure he wouldn’t be able to get up after that, but somehow he did;) Mike, you’re not twenty anymore;)

    King for a Day was added to the setlist after Ashes to Ashes (
    Mike did a flip? Wow.

    Awesome show!!! I’ve sailed between rows number 3 and 13 (the pressure was pretty intense during cuckoo for caca, surprise and gentle). Here’s also some pictures:

    What was that riff they played before chariots? It sounded like enter sandman by metallica 🙂

    Yeah, they played Digging the grave. Never been my favourite track though…infact I think that’s one of the worst songs by fnm so it wasn’t a welcome addition to setlist for me.
