Lordi @ Transbordeur (Lyon, France)

Lordi is a heavy metal band from Finland. The concept for Lordi was devised in 1992, however, the band was not formed until 1996 by Tomi Putaansuu (known as 'Mr. Lordi')[1] of Helsinki, Finland. Members of Lordi are noted for their elaborate monster-like costumes seen during live shows and in music videos. Lordi are also known as "The Finnish Monsters" and "The Monsters of Finland."[citation needed]

Lordi won the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest with a record 292 points, giving Finland its first ever victory. Lordi featured on the 2006 MTV Europe Music Awards in Copenhagen when Mr. Lordi presented the award for rock, and they were also the closing act playing their single Hard Rock Hallelujah. They also performed on Britain's Making Your Mind Up for the Eurovision Song Contest. Lordi performed on the main stage at Ozzfest 2007 and later that year toured with Type O Negative and Twin Method until Halloween night.

Mr. Lordi, who designed all new costumes for the band, has a gang of monsters at his side-- Amen the unstoppable mummy, Awa the vampire countess, Ox the hellbull, and Kita the alien manbeast. Together they take fans on an anthemic rock 'n' roll journey-- nothing short of a total bombardment of the senses. The riffs are certainly not de-fleshed nor are the mighty choruses mummified. These songs are proof: monsters do have more fun! And sharing in the fun will be Lizzy Borden and Stolen Babies for all shows below.
