Helsinki 16th March 2004

FANTASTIC, AWSOME CONCERT!!!

Even better than Stockholm, the crowd was so into it, they ate from Shania's hand.
This after days Kirppu has explained me how shy are the Finns, but they were much louder from the beginning than the Swedish people.

Shania also feed from the crowd'd reaction, and danced a lot!!! She told twice to the crowd to stand UP!, and of course they did what he said.

She came out in the pink west (like in Hamburg) and than the yellow body-glove with the flowers, and in the and the local team T-shirt. well the last one was a miss, and she's got booed, but she handled that very easily., and it did not effected the encore.

The concert started very well, Shania even mentioned that there were a lot of Finns in Timmins' and hockey, and snow like in Canada. And the crowd really enjoyed and had fun!
Once again, after the fantastic rendition of TWIM the arena exploded till the end, and there was a really really laud clapping and stomping and screaming till she came back - in the wrong shirt.
But everything was forgotten during the encore songs, and Helsinki rocked till we were burried under the confetti (even here on the floor at Kirppu's home)

That's for now, pictures tomorrow morning (Helsinki time)

But we ARE shy!

Yep, Shania wore the wrong jersey at the end, it was the local arena hockey team Jokerit.
After the boos, she asked what's wrong, don't you support your own team
She even asked one woman in the audience what's wrong with it .
We Finns take our hockey seriously
(Yes, I booed )

Confetti? Yep, after I got out the train, it was at the ground, and after coming home, it's all over my floor, and all the bags, pockets and inside the shirt even



Shania smiled a lot during the concert, and said several times how the audience rocked!

Re: Re: Helsinki 16th March 2004

Thanks for the reviews GIRLS!
Sounds like a GREAT Shania concert and lots of fun! You are getting spoiled..:P
Ok..more specific questions..
1) same setlist?
2) how was the band overall?
3) how was the dry ice effect during FAFA? Too much? LOL..
4) What about the charity raffle?
5) Anyone on stage with Shania singing..how much autograph signing?
..OK enough questions..LOL!

Why was that the wrong one? You mean she picked the team from another town? Or there are two hockey teams playing at that arena?

So, what was wrong with the shirt???? I guess it would be like wearing a New York Mets shirt in NYC instead of a Yankee jersey.

1) same setlist
2) They were really great! :great: I had Cory at my end this time
Randall & JD the previous concert, and they were all so brilliant

3) no, I thought the dry ice was just fine
4) Ah yes, the Charity raffle was for the local children's charity: Lastenklinikan Kummit
She even took the note and pronounced it and it was very understable!

No, there were many people around Finland, and Jokerit team is one of the most hated one around any other than their own supporters. Oh well, she saved the situation well. But it still stings

Yes, in English: Are you ready Helsinki!!! I said, are you ready Helsinki!!!
And of course we were ready!!!!!

Btw: We asked and they said they do not reuse the confetti, it's always new. So now I am wondering how many trucks carry just confetti?

If I have understood kirppu alright..it's like having people from all over the UK going to see Shania at Wembley..with Shania wearing the Chelsea jersey..but people in the audience may come from Newcastle or Manchester or Liverpool..so they may actually not support Chelsea and they will boo Shania for wearing that jersey..if I have understood it correctly..LOL!
