The lights went down and the music from The Phantom Of The Opera wacked out of the PA. He then went about playing about 4 of his new songs and then played the all famous Welcome To My NightMare show which rocked.

Sound: It all started very loud, which is good, but the treble was too high making it impossible to hear the first Twisted solo but was sorted out by the second. The kick drums were very high along with the bass for the rest of the concert, just the way I like it. Over all Twisted's sound was sorted out quickley and Alice was perfect. // 9

Perfomance: Twisted Sister came on with a bang and realy got the crowd going opening the gig at 7:30 (30 mins late) but stayed on until nearly 9:00 getting an encore and making some very crude jokes while they were at it. There was then about a 30 mins break while the set was changed. The Alice and his band Ryan Roxie and Damon Johnson on guitars, Eric Singer on drums and Chuck Garric on bass. The lights went down and the music from The Phantom Of The Opera wacked out of the PA. He then went about playing about 4 of his new songs and then played the all famous Welcome To My NightMare show which rocked. He then came back, from having his head cut off, to the relm of the living in a white suite and did three songs in his encore, including Poison and Schools Out. He dispursed of three sepurate canes into the audience and multiple perl necklaces. He also stabbed around a bit with his sword and his python stole the show. As if that wasn't enough Eric Singer had the most amazing drum solo. // 10

Overall Impression: I had been waiting for this for nearl a year or over I can't quite remember, but rest asured it was for a very long time, but it was worth it. The NEC arena, Birmingham, England has got to be one of the best indoor, under 15, 000 seeting, concert venue in the world. Twisted Sister played like rock gods and Alice and band managed to do better. The tickets were about 35 including booking but was worth every penny. I went with two of my best friends and they loved it and one of my other friends who went with another party agrees. The whole thing was unforgetable, from Twisted's rude jokes Alice's stage girl, from the opening guitar to every one in the venue screeming Poison. But the best most unforgetable thing as far as I was concerned was screeming Schools out, with every one else, but I had the satisfaction of knowing by the time I'd got home and got my make up off it would be well into the next morning and knowing I had a maths teast the very next day. // 10
