The line-up and the presumable instrumentation:
 
 
Jim Pembroke - vocals, keyboards
Jukka Gustavson - vocals, organ
Pekka Rechardt - guitars, backing vocals
Esa Kotilainen - synth, accordion?
Pave Maijanen - bass, backing vocals
Jan Noponen - drums
 
Plus guesting Mikko Rintanen (keyboards, vocals) and Pedro Hietanen (accordion? keyboards?).
 
 
Also the Tampere gig and the other Helsinki gig are almost sold out by now! Smile

What I really hope Nikke Nikamo & Mats Hulden join at least some songs (in 2003 they joined and played first single "Must Be the Devil")!

Not likely, Nikamo and Mats. Mats has not done much music work since 2010. He has other skills. Maijanen I believe was booked for bass and vocal skills. If Jim had not agreed to tour, Maijanen would have done the vocals.

Us folks abroad would really like to see some official recordings of these gigs. I have tons of crappy Wigwam audience recordings already.

Well, Mats was in 2012 in Kauko Röyhkä & Narttu reunion tour playing bass. Also I haven´t got any musical information about him after that. More I think it´s Nikke who hasn´t played much. When they both joined in 2003, I don´t think it´s impossible they join at least one song in those future gigs, just because it´s a bands 50th birthday year.

Also hope they will release a record from those gigs, haven´t ever been the biggest fan of Wigwam Plays Wigwam - live, just because of Jari Kettunen. Jan Noponen is just so much greater drummer, really close to Ronnie in his style. No idea are you vinyl lover, but have you heard the two last Wigwam-albums are coming as a vinyl first time?

About the vocals, in Wigwam Revisited gigs Gustavson has done also few vocals, most vocals was done by Mikko Rintanen, whose voice is really close to Jim. He´s also in those future gigs as a guest.
