Here a rough translation for our English speaking fans:
The Warriors of MANOWAR Conquered Bulgaria
The Heavy Metal heroes honored the local fans with “Mila Rodino”
The favorites of the local metal scene MANOWAR performed a magnificent show in front of thousands of Bulgarian fans gathered in Arena Armeec on Sunday night. The American band presented the best of its discography. The show was part of The Final Battle World Tour, with album hits over the past 30 years being performed
Traditionally, vocalist Eric Adams performed the Bulgarian anthem, which was highly and loudly appreciated by Bulgarian fans.
Then bass guitarist Joey DeMaio admitted that Bulgaria is one of his favorite destinations. He added that he liked Bulgarian beer and rakia, greeted Sofia Mayor Yordanka Fandakova and dedicated the concert to all heavy metal defenders as well as the deceased Bulgarian translator Nelly. DeMaio even spoke Bulgarian, but that should not surprise us because he is a friend of former Kavarna Mayor Tsonko Tsonev and the first concert of the band in Bulgaria – in 2007, within Kavarna Rock Fest, he already he had learned an enormous amount of Bulgarian words with which he freely worked from the stage by the sea. The show ended with the words: ‘today, on June 16, the Warriors of MANOWAR conquered Bulgaria!’
The show was broadcast live on a huge LED screen behind the stage, and in a set of volcanoes, battle scenes and real Vikings carrying torches that symbolized the transition to Valhalla. The band came with a team of more than 60 people in Sofia.
