This was my second time seeing Blind Guardian and it was absolutely incredible. Everyone in the crowd was singing along to the songs and enjoying every second of it. Blind Guardian concerts are an amazing experience. They are my favorite band of all time.

The concert was awesome from the band and music perspective. Blind Guardian is a great band and one of the best in the Heavy Metal style, with a unique identity and awesome musicians. The interaction with the audience was awesome. The venue was too small for a band like Blind Guardian. Dublin has bigger places that would fit better the concert.

About Blind Guardian

Blind Guardian is a speed metal/power metal band from Krefeld / Meerbusch, Germany, that is credited as one of most influential artists of its genres. While early Blind Guardian's work belong to speed metal style, in latest releases the band moved towards epic power metal.

Blind Guardian was founded in 1984 by André Olbrich (guitar), Hansi Kürsch (vocals, bass), Marcus Siepen (guitar) and Thomas "Thomen" Stauch (drums), (left the band in 2005, replaced by Frederik Ehmke). Before calling themselves Blind Guardian, the band released two demos under the name Lucifer's Heritage in 1985 and 1986.

Blind Guardian has always been inspired by the fictional worlds of fantasy writers such as J.R.R. Tolkien, Michael Moorcock, Margaret Weis, Tracy Hickman, Stephen King as well as traditional legends and epics. Stephen King's Dark Tower series has also been an influence on the band, evident in "Somewhere Far Beyond" as well as numerous Demons and Wizards songs. Over the years, a running theme has developed associating the band members with migrant workers.

The line-up has been the same since 1988, but in 2005 the drummer, Thomas Stauch, left the band due to the direction the band was taking in their last studio albums, "Nightfall In Middle-Earth" and "A Night at the Opera". He was replaced by Frederik Ehmke.

Recently, Blind Guardian released a new studio album named "A Twist in the Myth". The band continues to push the limits with the new album, making "A Twist in the Myth" one of the most diverse Blind Guardian albums yet. An official music video has also been released for "Another Stranger Me".

In November 2006 they were the headliners at the Monterrey Metal Fest in Mexico.

In 2007 Blind Guardian went to the Wacken Open Air.

The band has also teamed up with the creators of the video game "Sacred 2" to make an in-game concert sequence featuring renditions of the band members playing an as-yet unreleased song "live".

For now they took a small vacation and won't be playing any tours: "As for touring activies I doubt we are going to play any concerts up to the end of 2009. Any earlier appearance would be a big suprise, but you never know..." -Hansi's words
Look for further news in www.blind-guardian.com

Line-Up:
Hansi Kürsch - Vocals (and Bass on the Studio-Albums and live before 1998) - He is the also the singer of the Band Demons and Wizards (Together with Iced Earth's Jon Schaffer).

André Olbrich - Lead Guitar

Marcus Siepen - Rhythm Guitar

Frederik Ehmke - Drums - He plays the Drums, Percussion,
Bagpipe and Vocals in a Band called Schattentantz (Medieval Times, Folklore, Ancient Gods).

Live there is also:
Oliver Holzwarth - Bass - He plays bass as a session musician, though he tours with the band. The primary reason he isn't the official bassist is that the band doesn't want to have to fire him, should Hansi ever decide to pick the bass up again. He's also in the Bands Coldseed, Sieges Even and he was a member of Paradox and Val' Paraiso. Oliver is a brother to Rhapsody drummer Alex Holzwarth.

Micheal Schüren - Keyboard - He's a member of Coldseed
