Blind Guardian – Live Beyond The Spheres

Unlike the last live DVD and like the previous live audio disc, this recording is made of songs taken for their whole tour in support of their album Beyond The Red Mirror, and not from a full evening performance.

As I attended a show during this tour (in Prague late 2015), I thought it was a nice thing to get this triple disc to remember that night. Additionally, most of those songs played were missing from my own collection, so their live version was a nice plus. The release of this live recording was already announced on the spot during the show, as Hansi Kürsch told us they were recording the performance, which was a way for him to get the best out of us to sing along.

The release date comes a long time after the recording (2015, which means two years after approximately), but it’s due to the time the band spent to pick the best performances from the available footage. This meticulous selection beforehand ensures the quality of the final product. Though I thought Blind Guardian was better in studio before seeing them live, the stunning vocal performance Hansi Kürsch gave in Prague convinced me to buy one of their live recording from this tour. There and back to fantasy land.
