Kiske with a japanese flagHoisendan commented: "Unisonic show was good!" Bard_jp said: "Unisonic and Gotthard were great. I'm impressed." Nat commented: "Hey, it was awesome Unisonic, with Michael Kiske on vocals, they played 'Future World' with Kai Hansen." Tsukunes said: "Great Unisonic! Michael and Kai Hansen together, is a miracle! I could seen last year at Loud Park, it was great I was constantly with a smile!" Hogeisendan commented: "It was really good, as well the songs of Unisonic. Kiske feels very confortable singing those melodies, and I felt good to hear them. 'Star Rider', 'Souls Alive' and 'Never Change Me' (it sounds like Bon Jovi) were really good. Michael Kiske was really good." i_k5 commented: "Kiske said during the introduction of 'March of Time'... "I've lost my hair, I'm 44 years old, now 18 years are long time ago but I still can sing this old song"... and he sang MOT in perfect tone." Ashimasuzuki said: "It was funny to see live Unisonic. They are still strong with Michael and Kai." Metalhealer commented: "Awesome show of Unisonic!". Naoko Angela said: "For me the best was 'Never Change Me'. It's my favourite song and is easy to listen even you are not a Unisonic fan. It was a little surprising the last part."

Mizuki said: "I enjoyed a lot in the show. Congratulations for all people who participated in!" Gaspode commented: "Unisonic and Gotthard were awesome, both bands have talent." Yigalca said: "Michael Kiske is in the best condition though! Goose bumps stood in high tone and vibrato, cool!" Nicb8 said: "I returned home safely after Unisonic show. Also Gotthard was good. Kiske singing was great, Future World and I Want Out encore was integrated as classic!" Tommyrobin said: "It was funny the show of Unisonic, please release it in Dvd!" Metalhighwind comment was: "Unisonic vocalist, Michael stays immaculately voice. The singing ability is not disturbed until the end. Like a genuine Helloween!" Imi7keys said about the sound: "Second show of Unisonic was great too but they improved the noise problem. I could hear clearly of voice of Kiske..."
