Merikaapelihalli, Kaapelitehdas, Helsinki
25 Years Of Techno Riot
This is it... it's time to say goodbye. 25 years of techno riot, 25 years of thousands of gigs, 25 years of travelling and endless hours on stage, 25 years of several broken bones and injuries, 25 years of nonstop music in my life at shows, home, work everywhere... Now it's time to stop and say heartfelt thank you to all of you... my dear friends and family.
The journey has been long, amazing and full of breathtaking action. I have been fortuned to gain so many great friends in so many countries, I have received so much love from so many people that I can say I have family at every country I have visited... and I miss you all.
I hope we can sill meet after the music stops.... but lets kick some serious ass still one more time! I hope I can see as many friends as possible at the final show on Saturday 12th December 2020.
