Lordi – Live at Sabaton Open Air 2022-08-05

4/10

To put Lordi this late in the evening must be because of the stage show .Otherwise its a band who for me is eyeing the younger fans of rock so an earlier slot would have been good for that matter, but here we are. And here I stay waiting for “That” song only.

The show itself seems like something Alice Cooper would have turned down even in his most drugged out era, for me not even the songs lifts the show to any higher standard.

Eleven records released and 16 years since their appearance in Eurovision Song Contest, so its 15-16 years since I cared about the band then, that might have something to do with me not feeling too much about this gig.

Is it time for them to do what Kiss did back in 1983 and unmask and reinvent themselves that way. This concert gave me as much as Deathstars did. Much ado about nothing.
Except for “Hard Rock Hallelujah” (the one I was waiting for because that song is so much associated with my sons) “Would You Love A Monster Man” should have been a bigger hit.

A band that I will keep on reading about and go and watch with one eye if they come to a festival again that I am guesting.
