Baroeg open Air
24 September 2011
On a late summer day when the sun shows her best side it was time for Baroeg Open Air. A free festival which reached its 4th edition. In a nice big park, where you can comfortably lie down, fair prices and above all a varied line-up it promises to be a successful day! There’s even given some thought to folk-metalfans. Korpiklaani had the honour to finish this festival. You now before they begin to play: this is going to be a big party! Despite of the fact the live-performance of these Fins was not always really good the last time (in my opinion Paganfest was really disappointing), this couldn’t be noticed this evening! The band started, a little bit different, not the traditional ‘Vodka’, but ‘Hunting Song’ this time. This wasn’t the only surprise in the setlist. Where they had a long resting point in their set-list in the past sometimes, there were only banging songs fired at the audience this time. More or less all drinking songs they ever made put together, Tequila, Vodka, Beer beer, Wooden pints, Juodaan vinaa and Tuoppi oltta were played at hight rate. All this party-songs did their work. From the start until the very last moment of the gig the whole tent was one big swirling, partying, jumping and pitting mass, which enjoyed the band very much. The setlist was not the only thing which was new in Korpiklaani. Today it was the début of violin player Teemu Eerola. Despite the fact he felt a little bit strangely on the stage, he played his part very tight. All in all a very good acquisition for Korpiklaani! After a little talk by the organisation is time to stop for Korpiklaani. After a last encore with the instrumental ‘Pellonpekko’ and ‘Korpiklaani’ everybody can go home satisfied and look back on a very very good concert!
