This is my review of the show in Chicago last night: AMAZING
Though I must say that Anette has a HORRIBLE eye for clothes. She can't match to save her life..her clothes looked awful last night, just way too bright and poofy. I swear it looked like she ran into a vintage store and pulled the first three things she saw and wore them. DID NOT MATCH.
That said, she had amazing stage presence anyway, she really got the crowd going. She seems like a real sweetheart...she just needs to get someone else to pick her clothes out, or help her at least...lol
Tuomas's Keyboard WAS NOT turned up loud enough, I could barely hear it throughout the show. At the very beginning he was motioning to the sound people to turn him up, but they didn't really turn him up for us, they may have just turned his monitor up or something. That was a bit disappointing. By the end of the show though, his shirt was all the way unbuttoned...that was NOT disappointing.
Marco is a HECK of a lot taller than I thought he was...he has really long legs!
Emppu was sooooo adorable! He was all pettable and cute and smiley! He came over to our side of the stage a lot, my friend said later that there were more girls on our side than the other lol! I have one of his guitar picks *swoon*.
Julius was awesome because even when he was playing really soft drum parts he was SUPER energetic and into it. I always love seeing people enjoying their instruments.
Oh and by the end of the show they had their alcohol out...looked like Tuomas had red wine, and Marco had vodka or some clear liquor. They're silly, and INCREDIBLY AWESOME!
