Logo - Type O Negative

Artist: Type-O-Negative
Venue: L’Amour – Brooklyn
Opener: Lacuna Coil
Date: 9/19-9/20/2003

This weekend (Sept 19 & 20th) saw the band Type-O-Negative returning to home ground at Brooklyn’s L’Amour. They hit the stage with the band Lacuna Coil opening for them. Sad to inform that I missed Lacuna Coil at theL’Amour show, but did see them at the T.O.N. Show at Irving Plaza a few weeks ago. They are quite good.

After about 30 minutes of Circus music, the crowd chants of “you suck”, “you suck” began until the band came out. Now, those that have never been to see them play before should please be aware that the audience really does not think they suck, this is just part of the fun. Usually Peter has a comment to them , but this weekend he did not.

Nightwish @ L’Amour (9/3/2003)

Artist: Nightwish
Venue: L’Amour (Brooklyn, NY)
Opener: unsigned acts
Label: Century Media Records
Date: 9/3/2003

A few short weeks ago Finland’s own Nightwish made their very first New York appearance at the famous L’Amour’s in Brooklyn. Metal heads know this place as a staple venue in the Metal World for more than two decades. To be honest with you I have only been a Nightwish fan for a little over a year and have yet to buy any of their material. Every release they have so far is an import and very expensive. Even my inner circle of music fans have hardly heard of this fine power-metal group. This fact makes me laugh since I always try to be ahead of others in this regard, but alas I owe this to someone else. So off to the show I went with a small crew of buddies expecting the standard fare.

Opener:
Label: Metal Blade Records
Date: 11/7/2003

I have to start this off by saying that although I have been a fan of King Diamond and Mercyful Fate for many years that I never ever went to see him perform live. Last night I finally got the chance, and boy was I glad I did this.

Atmospherically, the stage was loaded with amps and each had bones strewn across them. The Road Crew laid a small white casket with the name “Abigail” on it (a popular character theme that has been maintained through many of the King’s albums). Across the casket, several black roses. I think that this was an tribute to his early days band that was called “Black Rose” as well as a suitable stage decoration but I could be wrong. Following the theme of his new CD – “The Puppetmaster”, there was a large puppet onstage.
