Ey, that’s mean! For more than half of the concert I was certain that I could write this report in just five sentences, without doing the concert injustice in any way. Just by saying: A great audience, amazing atmosphere, loud singing, lots of dancing everywhere, and a band in an awesome mood, concentrating on playing instead of talking.

The only notes that I took until then were that Killmaster – during his “dancing spot” in En for orgelet – attempted a moon walk (which worked more like so-so *cough*) and that Hellraizer was actually wearing a yellow shirt (no, no, no *g*).

But after that, there were a few more details that are worth reporting … =;-) Omen was really the best throughout the whole concert; obviously, he was in a great mood and willing to do anything. At some point in time, he started eating dinner out of his suitcase, he imitated the Jackal, he was basically lying on his organ when he was “frightened” in the middle part of Svarte katter, he took a call on the megaphone, cleaned his gas mask, and took notes all the time. Incredibly funny!

The Jackal explained they had been shoe shopping – eight new pairs! So Berlin has the best shoe shops ever.

According to the management, they were supposed to play a ballad in the middle of the set, but: “We’re not playing any ballads in Berlin!” Instead, we got Sigøynerblod.

At the end, they did the tap dance of Begravelsespolka down in the audience again. Unlike in Erlangen, this was quite a challenge though: a high stage, barrier between the stage and the audience, and quite a big crow. Apparently, there was some kind of altercation between the Jackal and a fan – she wanted to grab the opportunity to shoot a photo but obviously got too close, so the Jackal was very clear: “Get the fuck out of my face while I’m dancing”. From what I heard, that might have been a harsh way to put it, but definitely justified. But yeah … “from what I heard”. I couldn’t see anything – and this is my biggest criticism about the concert. Of course it’s a nice idea to do the tap dance in the audience, but when it is on stage, you can actually SEE it. In Erlangen, it wasn’t too crowded, so that most of the audience could at least see some of it; but in Berlin, they excluded more than half of the audience from the fun. Which is a big minus. Honestly, I was REALLY annoyed at that time … *grr*

But Helge delivered the explanation for why they chose to do it like that after the concert in a short conversation. And the answer is more than logical: Carpet on stage! OK, I understand, it really doesn’t make sense to tap on carpet. =;-)

So in the end, I wrote more than just five sentences after all, but the general tone is the same: an absolutely awesome concert, one of the best of the tour up to now!

Das Konzert war wiedermal der Hammer.Mit dem Stepptanz fand ich auch schade.Wir standen rechts neben der Bühne und hatten so keine Chance etwas zu sehen.Ich ahnte nur das Sie jetzt gerade ihr Tänzchen absolvieren .Ich hoffe jemand hat was eingestellt auf You Tube oder so.Was ich ganz toll fand ,das Helge,Janove und Killmaster nach dem Konzert noch am Merchandising standen und für die Fans für Fotos und Autogramme und einen kleinen Talk zur Verfügung standen.Habe jetzt ein Foto mit dem Janove und dem Helge. Freu, Freu, Halleluja
