The Amazing Heilung Strikes
Heilung performed an amazing show! True to what I have heard streaming. Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! The Warfield was also an amazing dated theater. All the staff were professional, courteous, and very helpful to us. Amazing job all around. Cant wait to see both Heilung and the Warfield theater / staff. Awesome job! P.S. The across the street parking garage is great too.
Less a performance, more an experience
Last night my girlfriend, daughter, and I attended Heilung's performance at the Orpheum theater in Phoenix. I say performance, but that feels like a poor descriptor of what we saw/heard. From the first moment they walked out and smudged the stage/performers, to the end when they closed the same way, Heilung was in ritual mode and never broke it. An atmospheric stage set with dramatic smoke and lighting, thundering percussion, the growls and shrieks and wails of the performers, bodies writhing in ecstatic movement as they danced with fire and animal bones and Iron Age weaponry - this is as close as you will ever get to experiencing a pagan ritual in dark Northern European woods firsthand. At times the audience wasn't sure whether to remain in their seats and take it all in as passive observers, or rise and join the spectacle. At the finale Heilung made the decision for them, with a performer coming into the audience and encouraging active participation as they concluded the ritual. This is an experience worth having for the sheer uniqueness of it - if you have the opportunity I highly recommend.
The Heilung Experience
Was so excited when I discovered Heilung would be playing at the Orpheum theater in Phoenix the 29th of September! My husband and I booked our tickets in August and counted the days! We live just outside of Prescott in the community of Dewey/Humboldt AZ. We left early to make the hour and a half trip down the mountain wondering if we would be able to find the theater! Dreading all the one way streets and traffic one usually finds in a big city like Phoenix. Much to our surprise there were plenty of signs guiding us to the location of the theater and all sorts of parking garages in close proximity to the theater! The Heilung experience was everything I dreamed it would be! I've been following this group for the past three years on YouTube and they were every bit as awesome in person! The drumming and chanting took you to a whole different realm. The theater is an amazing work of art. The crowd was great, I hope Heilung comes back so more can enjoy the experience!
Heilung amazing! Palladium not so much
Heilung put on an amazing show, every moment felt sacred and ethereal. So much theater to each song, never broke ritual. Truly one of the most amazing experiences of my long life. However the Palladium needs to get some kind of order to their seating arrangement. Complete chaos, no one knew where to sit and staff were no help. Seats are PAINFULLY close together. If you are over 4 feet tall you will not be comfortable. Also the place needs some airflow, so hot and so stagnant.
