Video footage of HAIL! — the supergroup featuring vocalist Tim "Ripper" Owens (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH, BEYOND FEAR), guitarist Andreas Kisser (SEPULTURA), drummer Paul Bostaph (TESTAMENT, SLAYER, EXODUS, FORBIDDEN) and bassist James Lomenzo (MEGADETH) — performing a cover version of the BLACK SABBATH classic "Neon Knights" with a special guest appearance by Marco Hietala of NIGHTWISH and TAROT can be viewed below.

A review of the concert can be found at

HAIL! previously stated about the Helsinki show, "[The concert] was like no other — an exclusive and intimate fan experience that will never be repeated. We played an extra twelve songs, most that were completely improvised off the cuff that we have never played before! They were:

* LED ZEPPELIN - "Moby Dick"
* DEEP PURPLE - "Highway Star"
* STEPPENWOLF - "Born To Be Wild" (sung by Andreas)
* RAINBOW - "Man On The Silver" Mountain
* PINK FLOYD - "Money" (sung by Andreas)
* PINK FLOYD - "The Wall"
* AC/DC - "TNT"
* BLACK SABBATH - "Children Of The Sea"
* BLACK SABBATH - "Mob Rules"
* DEEP PURPLE - "Child In Time"
* JUDAS PRIEST - "Breaking The Law"
* JUDAS PRIEST - "Green Manalishi"

This was the pure essence of HAIL! — just having an amazingly fun night of jamming with the boys! …And if that wasn't enough, we also had Marco Hietala from NIGHTWISH/TAROT come up and sing 'Neon Knights' with us!"
