Metal morons: We’re clueless about Manowar, so we’re mostly farming this story about their gig here to social media fanboys


It’s 9 p.m. in Longyearbyen…do you know where your eardrums are?

If they’re worrying absent, it’s because the heavy metal band Manowar that’s built a huge cult following since forming in 1980 is halfway (yup, there another’s hour to go) through their Tuesday night concert at Kulturhuset as part of this year’s “The Final Battle World Tour.” But the show is only part of the spectacle, as parties, a parade and plenty of other pandemonium planned (and probably lots that isn’t) before the Manowarriors collapse into slumbers likely to last well into a hangover-laden Wednesday.
