Helloween Deliver ‘Power’ House Performance in New York City
With over 30 years of music and 15 studio albums to their name, Helloween continue to be force to be reckoned with. The band has been touring in support of their latest album, My God-Given Right, and they made a recent stop in the heart of New York City at Times Square's PlayStation Theater.
Helloween began their set with a one-two punch as fans sang out loud to the notable favorites “Eagle Fly Free” and “Dr. Stein.” With sweat and passion, frontman Andi Deris delivered songs from the new album such as the title track along with “Heroes” and “Lost in America.” The “newer” members of the bands shined too as a forceful drum solo was provided by drummer Daniel Loble while during the encore guitarist Sascha Gerstner unleashed a blistering guitar solo.
Longtime members bassist Markus Grosskopf and rhythm guitarist Michael Weikath cranked out the riffs throughout the night on favorites like "Power" and the set closers “Future World” and “I Want Out." Helloween are wrapping up their touring cylcle here in the States but will be playing some major European festivals this spring and summer, go here for a full list of dates!
A robotic baby with beedy red eyes being lifted out of a coffin…that’s how the band Them kicked off the night. Them were a visually and sonically stimulating and they got a very warm response from the crowd. Evidently influenced by King Diamond, Them have created a theatrical stage show and storyline involving the sacrifice of a young yet very evil girl. In full makeup vocalist Klaus Konig reached high notes while maintaining a creepy presence onstage.
