I wish they would tour Canada :lol We're neighbours and they still dont want to visit :/ :lol


Hi Shea! Aweeesome enjoy :D

Maybe coz you guys are so close they think you can just come and see them? lol I dunno.


I guess thats true but it would take so much more planning and traveling than just going across the city or something to a local venue one night :lol And I dont know if I'll ever have a window to see them stateside :/ I think its just cause they wont make enough money touring in Canada that they figure its best they dont risk it :lol

Did you order the novel too? :D Or is that a silly question since its Mark Tremonti's? :lol

But enough about that, how are you doing?


Hi Andrew. Oh, I've totally given up hope. There's a slight possibility Tremonti might show up to next years Download Festival but I'm not holding my breath.

I'm doing okay. I've been unemployed since May, so going a bit stir crazy. :smashcomp I spend my time reading, gaming and cleaning since I can't really afford social/fun things at the moment.

How are you?

Same reason they don't come to Aus/NZ much, I suppose! BUT you're much closer than me. ;)

I think my other half ordered it for me as a birthday present, I begged him to when they first were available to buy so I'm hoping it shows up soon. Otherwise I'll just have to buy it myself lol. :mtrocks

I'm doing well. Somehow still have a job and spend the majority of my free time diving in all things World of Warcraft (playing it, watching Twitch streams of it, reading news of it, etc.). Went to a Lindsey Stirling/Evanescence concert last week, you can read my post about it two pages back, but I had a fun time and I'm excited to see Owl City next month.

A year ago it wouldn’t be a problem but now… We would need overnight accommodation which is additional expense on top of tickets and gas… It also means we’d have to ask our parents to take care over the kids… I know, there’s a saying: if you want to, you’ll find a way and if you don’t want to , you’ll find a reason… So it seems I’m finding my reasons now. Have I lost my momentum?..


I think they're in Oslo on... God I forgot what the date was, but my sister already told me I should come see them.
Obviously I'd prefer to see Myles with AB but idk might be a good opportunity to see Norway too! Except I'm already dead-set on going there for a festival to see Conception and their reunion with Roy Khan. Decisions, decisions!

Merinda wrote:Hey all.

Good to see some of the ladies still active on here as well as the regular chaps.

Lotha, wtf, I didn't know you were getting married, congratulations! :hug


Yay, Min, you're back! I missed ya girl. :hug
Thank you! I did see you got engaged too so congrats right back ^^

We're starting to cave on not telling anyone (to answer Tigra). The whole organization is slowly creeping past a simple elope but we're still comfortable with what we're planning so I don't know. Decisions are hard, man. :P

I just realized I've known you guys for a really long time. Like, what, five years? Holy crap.

Min, if you ever miss chatting like in the good old days, hit me up :D I'm awkward about reaching out to people to reconnect but I do remember our conversations fondly. :)
And I'm still a total joy to be around. Just ask Andy. He knows.

Just saw the news that the Trans-Siberian Orchestra is playing in Ontario, CA at the Citizens Business Bank Arena on December 1st and I saw that there's a Groupon deal for $50.00 for a $83.25 ticket and the seats is in the 200 sections on the left and right side of the arena as close to the stage as it can get for the 200 sections.

Naturally, I decided to buy the ticket. Should be a fine show. Should have some decent production values, a wide array of solid vocalists, and it should be a cheery time due to the Christmas theme.

I have never seen them, before, but I hear really good things about them and their show and it's best for me to get festive, for once.

Hey Drew! Was thinking about you when Myles announced his new tour dates and KC was as close as he's getting to me. Wondered if you might go to that one. How ya been? Hope the new job is going well.

Going good. Haven't been on here as much. Priorities, lol. But job is great. Got Tix for Metallica in KC in March, basically was a car payment, lol. Probably going to miss Myles

I can't accept that answer, mate. These are probably going to be the only times he's going to do a standalone solo shows and the tickets are really priced as a steal. They are for about half the ticket price of an AB or Slash ticket and they go by pretty fast since the venues are also about half or a third of the size of an AB or Slash show, but it's the best I have ever been to.

Same here, but I'm happy he's back.

I've decided to go to Norway to see Conception in May. I absolutely have to listen to Roy Khan live at least once in my life. Hopefully the tickets don't get sold out soon.

Sometimes I wonder if Macca is really Conor McGregor and he’s not on here much anymore because he got famous.

I've been playing Ark Survival Evolved myself, I tried WoW again a while ago but I just couldn't be bothered starting all over again and levelling another Blood Elf up. I couldn't log back into my old account since it was from when I was living in NZ. It was too hard.

I read your concert story, sounds like you had a good time despite some flaws from Evanescence' side. I had no idea who Lindsey Stirling is until I read it so I'm currently listening to First Light on YouTube. I like it.

Thank you! Look at us getting all engaged and stuff. :hug

I'm actually considering eloping also. In Paris. Buuuut that would disappoint/upset a lot of people.... but at the same time it's about myself and L so why should it matter!

I will message you at some point hehe. I'm the same. I'm awkward with messenger lol. I generally get a message, forget about it, want to reply but feel like it's too late and the awkwardness goes on. I'm honestly terrible at replying to people. Emails, phone calls, forum posts, texts. I'm just shit.

I feel like you reappearing around the same time I have is no coincidence... :shifty Didn't you get married? Bloody hell we're all getting married and engaged. AB babies next!

I'm still single. Not getting engaged or married any time soon. Mentioned that I was probably the only male single guy at the Lindsey Stirling/Evanescence concert. Everyone else was either with their friends or their significant other or with their families. That's when reality really kicked in for me. :mope
