Throwback Thursday

Uli Jon Roth @ 2016 Metal Magic Festival

@MetalMagicDK @UliJonRoth1

Throwing it back to my first Metal Magic Festival and a love affair that hopefully won’t end anytime soon. The 2020 Metal Magic Festival will happen in early July, and I hope to be there. Blaze Bayley has already been announced as one of the acts. I skipped that era of Iron Maiden so now it’s time to go back and see if I can get into The X Factor and Virtual XI, the only two Iron Maiden releases that I’m not intimately familiar with.

Making love to your ear canal

At Metal Magic XI I was chatting with a Danish guy, and the discussion turned to Metal Magic IX with Uli Jon Roth. The Danish guy said something like, “listening to Uli Jon Roth is like having someone make love to your ear canal” to which I cannot disagree.

If you are unfamiliar, here you go:

As mentioned previously, the Scorpions didn’t work for me at Copenhell. Uli Jon Roth, on the other hand, did. While the Scorpions no longer play their better songs (mostly written by Roth), Uli played nothing but early Scorpions (and a couple Hendrix covers) on this evening. I wouldn’t have minded some Electric Sun tunes as well, but I’m not going to complain.

The setlist was:
All Night Long
Longing for Fire
The Sails of Charon
Sun in My Hand
We’ll Burn the Sky
In Trance
Rainbow Dream Prelude
Fly to the Rainbow
I’ve Got to Be Free
Dark Lady
All Along the Watchtower
Little Wing
Catch Your Train
Pictured Life

“We’ll Burn the Sky” followed by “In Trance” was particularly amazing in my mind.
