World War Tour – Glasgow Garage – 12/10/10

Sabaton bring their World War Tour, featuring special guests, the kings of Scottish pirate metal. Alestorm, to Glasgow.

I’ll admit it, I wasn’t to fond of Alestorm prior to this gig, but the show really changed my mind, it was great fun and the songs are much better live than they are on record.  The fans loved it, everyone was singing along and the new song Rum went down a charm. I’d recommend seeing this band to anyone, even if you aren’t a fan of the albums.

The Final Countdown by Europe plays as Sabaton make their way on stage.  opening with Ghost Division, the band storm through a great set with plenty of old tracks mixed in with tracks from the new album. The fans went crazy for every song and the Sabaton chants between songs were deafening.

In all, this was a great night, I can wait to see both these bands again!
