Day five of our tour began with our arrival in Bielefeld on a clear, beautiful morning, which soon turned into a stormy afternoon with heavy rain. During the sound-check preparations we kept ourselves busy with various sports activities (badminton, running, table football). Today we had a cook, who was hired just for us, make a delicious lunch right there in front of us. We have been more than satisfied with both the food and the service on this tour. At 10 PM the concert started. The audience of a little over 50 people agreed with us that it was again a great concert. We signed a few autographs for our new fans and gave a few interviews. The evening ended up in a pleasant party in the morning hours.
Keep on rockin'!
We were already parked at the door of the Backstage Club when we awoke. Just one look at the venue -- it was very promising. And the promises became reality. The hall with a spacious stage, a comfy backstage and a selection of catering items to choose from. During the sound-check and the concert itself we were really pleased with the sound; it lifted the spirits on stage, as well as in the not-exactly-full club. Due to a celebration of two of our team members' birthdays the evening became the morning...
After a ride of almost 12 hours we arrived in a town called Karlsruhe. This was our first opportunity of going on tour with a nightliner. To say a few words about the bus: downstairs there's a "living room", kitchen, TV sets, "dining room" and a lavatoty. Upstairs is a place for sleeping or resting.
In the afternoon we had a sound-check and dinner afterwards. The concert started at 9:20 PM and we did a pretty good job at enlivening the audience. After the encore we met the fans from Germany and of course from Slovenia. We were again surprised to see Slovene fans, who came to our concert all the way from Luxembourg.
Our compliments to the organizers of the concerts and the club staff.
From our biggest German tour, in hope to see you soon,
Day 1 of our German tour began with leaving Ljubljana at 1:30 AM. On our way to the first concert place in Karlsruhe we got to experience the luxury of travelling with a nightliner, which will be our home for the duration of the tour. We arrived in Karlsruhe at 2 PM, the concert starts at 9:15. The atmosphere in the team is fantastic. It has started!!!
Friday 13th began with our departure from Ljubljana in the early morning, only this time there was a slight delay. It took us approximately 13 hours to get to Leipzig and to make it a perfect Friday 13th, a traffic jam slowed us down even more. To cut it short, we arrived in Leipzig exactly half an hour before our show, which was to last 45 minutes. That gave us a good half an hour long concert, energetic to the fullest as we played full power numbers only. We can brag about playing on the biggest stage of this three-day-long "gothic" festival, the visitor capacity of which can be up to 300,000. We are very satisfied with the concert. The audience sang along and went wild together with us, though it was the first time to hear us for most of them. But we received a huge round of applause at the end and heard shouts of words like "Zugabe", which means encore. We hope to have even more reactions like this in the future.
Keep on rockin'!
