STRATOVARIUS At PIORNO ROCK: Review, Photos Posted Online has posted a review and pictures of STRATOVARIUS' performance at the Piorno Rock festival in Spain Saturday night (Feb. 28).

"[Singer Timo] Kotipelto was the best yesterday, he sang everything perfectly, reaching all the high notes and, like always and giving everything to the audience," Jose M. Tornay writes. "Kotipelto and [drummer] Jörg [Michael] were clearly the best in the show. [Guitarist Timo] Tolkki needs help. He is really good at what he does, but now he has lost the way...

"After 'I Walk To My Own Song', Tolkki went behind the stage. Kotipelto was sitting on the drums waiting for Tolkki with a very sarcastic face. Suddenly Tolkki appeared with a bottle of vodka and drank half of it in 5 seconds. Everyone started to worry. Then Tolkki [grabbed] his mic, and started to shout 'What the fuck is going on?!' and in spanish "Qué coño pasa?!". Some fools from the crowd were throwing bottles to him and some of them hit his guitar. At the moment I thought the worst would happen, Tolkki threw the mic to the air and [it] fell on the floor."
