Helldone 2009 at Tavastia-Helsinki, Finland
As a long-time HIM fan, I was finally able to attend Helldone for the first time 12/28/09 and 12/29/09. HIM thrilled fans with songs from the band’s earlier albums, most notably ‘Deep Shadows and Brilliant Highlights’. In addition to the older hits, HIM previewed three new songs, ‘Heartkiller, ‘Scared to Death’ and ‘Love, The Hardest Way’ from the band’s upcoming CD ‘Screamworks: Love in Theory and Practice’ due February 8, 2010. HIM’s US tour to support ‘Screamworks: Love in Theory and Practice’ begins March 26, 2010.
Helsinki’s own 69 Eyes performed acoustic sets at Semifinal to open Helldone 2009. The eager crowd of 69 Eyes fans packed into the small club to hear a combination of 69 Eyes classics and Elvis Presley covers. The 69 Eyes start their European tour to support their latest release ‘Back in Blood’ January 13, 2010.
