WOVEN HAND – Prague (Akropolis)
Support by Please The Trees

So two days after the amazing Woven Hand show in Vienna me and my friends travelled to the wonderful city of Prague. Luckily one of my friend knew this city very well and so he showed us the most beautiful corners of this breathtaking town. For me it was the first time that I was there and I was completely hooked. If you have ever the chance to visit Prague – just do it! You won’t trust your eyes!

So after the sightseeing we went to the club Palac Akropolis. Ton, the tourmanager, told us that the show in Athens the day before was awesome – almost sold out and the people went nuts and sang „Black Soul Choir“ with David! Well, before we were going to see them again there was a local support band called Please The Trees. Nothing special at all but it was obvious that they were well known in their hometown.

Before Woven Hand started their set I got my place in the front row and so I was ready for the show, which was very similar to the Vienna one – very intense and heavy. I remember a girl standing next to me who held her hands on the ears during a very loud version of „Tin Finger„. David saw this, smiled and rocked on with full force. Also it was funny to see that David and the band were in a very good and relaxed mood. They smiled a lot and joked a little bit between the songs – so the atmosphere at the club was perfect. You can see it on some pictures below 😉

SLIM CESSNA’S AUTO CLUB – St. Gallen (Grabenhalle)

Back in 2009 I saw the fantastic Slim Cessna’s Auto Club live for the very first time. And this happened at the Grabenhalle in St. Gallen. So it was a kind of „back to the roots“ thing when we travelled to Switzerland to see this outstanding band from Denver again. And I hoped that more people will find their ways to the show – three years before (on the 23rd April)  they played in front of a handful people but nevertheless the performance was one of the best I have ever seen (as you can check here).

So this time there were two differences to the last concert at the Grabenhalle: First, more poeple showed up, secondly the performance was not that breathtaking again, BUT it was of course a very intense and excellent show (as you can see on the picutes below). Unfortunatley Dany’s bow was broken so no „Jesus is in my Body – My Body has let me down“ this time.

And it was such a big pleasure to meet some of the good people again: Tony from Scotland and Carol from New Mexico were there too – like back in 2009! Also Sändy and Grit from Germany attended this show.

Well, as you can see on some pictures I was very into the songs again – especially „He, Roger Williams“ hooked me with full force and suddenly I found myself with Slim rolling on the floor 😉

JEHTRO TULL – Bad Reichenhall (Sternenzelt)
Support by The Young Dubliners

After seeing the great Rory Gallagher performing at the Sternenzelt in Bad Reichenhall a few years ago (on the 29th May 1993 – as you can see here) it was my second and unfortunately last time to be in that wonderful location – a big tent with perfect sound. That day it was a very hot summer day and so the crowd and myself were beginning to sweat very early. So it was a hot night with Jethro Tull in Bad Reichenhall this time – not Budapest 😉

As it was the tour to promote „The Very Best Of“ album I was very curious about the setlist, which featured also some new solo tracks from Ian Anderson’s wonderful release „The Secret Language Of Birds“ from 2000. It was very nice to hear tunes like „Roots to Branches“ and „Hunt by Numbers“ again – but the big surprises for me were the songs „Sweet Dream“ and „Love Story„. I never heard these two Tull classics before live on stage.

All in all it was a very solid performance with a well-balanced setlist featuring songs from the first album „This Was“ to „Dot Com„. And it was a very tasty appetizer for the gig in Munich on the 27th June, for which I asked for an interview with Ian Anderson 😉

JEHTRO TULL – Graz (Orpheum)

This time the line up was brandnew to me: Beside Ian Anderson, Martin Barre and Andrew Giddings two new members replaced Doane Perry and Dave Pegg: Dave’s son Matt played bass and Marc Parnell, who worked also on the solo CDs of Martin Barre, was sitting behind the drums.

The year before Jethro Tull toured around the world to celebrate the 25th anniversary. In 1994 the band played cities and countries, which had to be skipped. So it was obvious that the setlist would not change that much – but it was not exactly the same performance as in Vienna (see listed below – 30th June 1993) and Wels (3rd July 1993). So my personal highlight was „Beggar’s Farm“ – the first time that I hear that track from the first Tull album „This Was„!

Although there were those new boys in the band, the performance was excellent again. From time to time especially Martin helped the Marc a few times that he didn’t miss the entries.

MADRUGADA – Vienna (Szene)
Support: Vidar Vang

To this concert I was very looking forward because I became a huge fan of this outstanding band from Norway. I missed their shows over the last years but this time me and my friends went to the Szene in Vienna to see Sivert Hoyem and the band the first time.

Norway singer Vidar Vang opened the show and he (with his violin player Lisa) joined Madrugada later during their set which was started with a breathtaking version of „Blood Shot Adult Commitment„. Many songs from that night were taken from the current release at that time called „The Deep End„, but the setlist featured also songs from alll the earlier releases. Unfortunately they didn’t play „Strange Colour Blue„, one of my all time favorite songs. But the consolation like the wonderful tunes „Belladonna“ or „Electric“ was more than perfect 😉

Madrugada – Vienna (Szene)(07.06.2005) Ticket © Alex MelomaneThe Setlist:
Blood Shot Adult Commitment
Stories From The Streets
On Your Side
Vocal
Majesty
Running Out Of Time
The Kids Are On High Street
Electric
Sail Away
Slow Builder
Belladonna
Hard To Come Back
Black Mambo
Tonight I Have No Words For You
Hold On To You
Ramona

Vidar Vang joined Madrugada singing a duet with Sivert on „The Kids Are On High Street“ and Lisa played violin on „Majesty“ and „Hold on to you„.

After the show we met Sivert and Frode Jacobsen at the bar and they were so kind to sign some of our covers. Two years later the tragic death of guitarist Robert Buras shocked the band and all the fans around the world – R.I.P. …

PEARL JAM – Munich (Olympiahalle)

My third Pearl Jam live experience happened in Munich at the Olympiahalle. As the other two performances I’ve attended so far (Salzburg 2000 and Vienna 2006) were breathtaking so I was vey looking forward to this one. And another concert followed one day later – I got my ticket also for the Jethro Tull show at the Circus Krone 😉

Pearl Jam – Munich (Olympiahalle)(12.06.2007) Ticket © Alex MelomaneSo on the way to Munich I thought about a so-called „Pearl Jam Wishlist“: Beside my favorites like „Rearviewmirror„, „Present Tense“ and „Do the Evolution“ I would love to hear rarities like „Down“ and some cover versions. So when I found myself in the hall and Eddie Vedder and his band opened with „Sometimes“ I was completely into the music. And I really didn’t trust my ears when Pearl Jam played all those songs I had on my wishlist 😉 And with the Who cover of „Baba O’Riley“ this amazing setlist was finished in a perfect way. And it proved my opinion again that Pearl Jam is one of the best live bands ever! After the show I bought this wonderful red shirt and also a photo book as a souvenir.

SLIM CESSNA’S AUTO CLUB – Nuremberg (Desi)

Due to the volcano Eyjafjallajökull I missed Slim Cessna’s Auto Club tour through Europe in 2010. So after 2009 a year with no SCAC shows for me ;-(

Anyway – Europe was in 2011 again on the tour schedule of the Auto Club and so I was very looking forward to see the best live band on earth again – this time in Nuremberg at the location called Desi. And it was the first time to see Todd „The Peeler“ Moore playing the drums in this band! He is also member of Munly’s project Munly & The Lupercalians and so I already saw him playing in Fort Collins and Denver back in 2009.

The performance was breathtaking again and I remember doing some vocals on „All about the Bullfrog in three Verses“ with Slim 😉

And during „He, Roger Williams“ I was on the stage! You don’t believe this? Well, then check out one of the videos listed below 😉

SLIM CESSNA’S AUTO CLUB – Munich (Theatron – Pfingst Festival)

After the breathtaking performance in Nuremberg the day before, Slim Cessna’s Auto Club showed the crowd in Munich why this band from Denver, Colorado, is called one of the best live bands on earth. As you can see on the pictures and videos listed below the boys rocked again with full force and it was obvious that the people were overwhelmed. And so after the show they charged the merchandising which was sold out in a very short itme 😉

JETHRO TULL – Munich (Circus Krone)

One day after I attended the awesome Pearl Jam concert at the Olympiahalle in Munich I was ready for another live experience with Jethro Tull – this time at the wonderful location called Circus Krone. And it should be the last time that Ian Anderson could convince me with his performance. My personal highlights were „Pastime With Good Company (King Henry’s Madrigal)“ and the cover of „America“ (which was written by Leonard Bernstein).All in all it was a very good and solid performance, but I began to miss the magic which didn’t come back in the next years. Sad to say this, but as Bob Dylan also pointed it out: „The Times they are A-Changin“ 😉

AC/DC – Munich (Olympiastadium)

Oh – how was I looking forward to this: My very first live experience with AC/DC! Although I was very far away from the stage, this performance blew me away! The current album at that time was „Stiff Upper Lip“ – a brilliant record which was produced again by George Young. And so the sound is typically back to the roots and proved again, that Angus and Malcolm Young creat riffs which are timeless and outstanding. And when you look at the setlist listed below you might have an idea how spectacular this performance was. And after the first encore set the lights were switched on and many people started to leave the stadium. But the show was not really over yet – AC/DC came back for the classic „Shot down in Flames“!

PEARL JAM – Salzburg (Residenzplatz – Open Air)

One of the best shows I’ve ever seen took place at the wonderful Residenzplatz in Salzburg. And it was my very first live experience with Pearl Jam! The weather was perfect and at the end of the show the full moon was over the stage. This was a very special and magic night – for the crowd and for the band. It was obvious that Eddie Vedder and his band enjoyed every second of the performance. Needless to say that I became a huge Pearl Jam fan after this outstanding night! And it was also the beginning of releasing all recordings of this tour – so I’ve got my own copy and you can get yours here!

I can remember a funny situation – after the support band left the stage I was queuing for some beers. While I was waiting my friend messaged me on the mobile – he tole me that Eddie Vedder was playing an acoustic song solo! Damn, and I missed this ;-(

AC/DC – Paris (Stade France)
Support by Killing Machine & Slash (Guns ‚N Roses)

Another AC/DC show – another headbanging night and it was a sort of reunion with Slash, who I saw with Guns ‚N Roses back in the nineties. And to be honest – I didn’t expect anything when the guitar hero entered the stage with his new band. But when they started the show I was completely speechless! And I surprised myself while singing some classics along with the crowd 😉

The Setlist:
Ghost
Back from Cali
Nightrain
Rocket Queen
Sucker Train Blues
Starlight

Then another „Black Ice“ show started – no surprises since the last shows and so AC/DC performed in their well known way: straight-forward as you can see on the videos listed below.

JEHTRO TULL – Munich (Rudi-Sedlmayer-Halle)

This was one of my favorite Tull shows of the nineties. Why? Well, just check out the setlist listed below! They opened with the classic „A Song for Jeffrey“ – the very first time for me to hear this tune live from Ian Anderson! And then „Aqualung“ and „Thick as a Brick“ followed – perfect! Normally you hear these songs as an encore and not that early! So after this wonderful start everybody was completely into the show, I do guess 😉

And more highlights followed: „Skating away on the thin Ice of the new day„, „We used to know“ (full version!) and „Acres Wild“ were my personal highlights of that night. „Back to Budapest“ feat. Leslie Mandoki was also a nice surprise, but to be honest, another Tull surprise as they did one month later in Austria would have been much more appreciated 😉

ARCADE FIRE – Wiesen (Open Air)
Support by The Weakerthans & Jose Gonzalez (Junip)

Before one of the best live acts began, The Weakerthans and Jose Gonzalez opened the show. Especially Jose Gonzalez, who is also memeber of a band called Junip, did a wonderful job. As you can see and hear here – his version of the Massive Attack classic „Teardrop“:


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Then Arcade Fire entered the stage with full force. It was the second time that I was seeing them live and it was again breathtaking! Just check out the videos listed below!

JEHTRO TULL – Munich (Zenith)
Support by Leslie Mandoki & Soulmates
(incl. Masha and also Ian Anderson, Jonathan Noyce & Doane Perry on six songs).

Well, this one was another average Jethro Tull performance. Very solid but nothing special. The support acts were really annoying althougth Ian Anderson, Jonathan Noyce and Doane Perry contributed on six tracks. And it was not a good idea to have Masha as the background singer – her singing especially during „Heavy Horses“ was not really a revelation …

GARY MOORE – Munich (Colosseum)

Unfortunately I can’t really remember this show. A friend of mine was a huge Gary Moore fan and so I accompanied him that night. And as I love Blues and Rock I was quite sure that I wll like this performance. And I really did, but I hardly remember any of the songs beside „Still got the Blues„.

JEHTRO TULL – Munich (Tollwood Festival)
Support by The Young Dubliners

After the last Tull show I attended in Bad Reichenhall a few weeks ago (just scroll this site up to 4th June 2006) I was very looking forward to this one, because I had an interview date with Mr. Ian Anderson! My camera man Tom (thanks a bunch, Dude!) and me queued up at the Tollwood Festival and tried to contact the tourmanager. After a few minutes we entranced the location – a very interesting experience to be in the tent before anybody else was aloud to. So backstage we were told that Ian will not do the interview. I answered that I can interview anybody from the band and while we waited for our interview partner, Andy Giddings were joking with the roadies playing with a water pistol. As I said „Hey Andy!“ he fired on me and everybody laughed. For Heaven’s Sake our camera didn’t become wet – so thanks Andy 😉

Meanwhile the tourmanager came back and told us that Mr. Martin Barre is ready for the interview. So we build up the camera and one of my all time favorite guitar player showed up. This was my second interview so it’s obvious that I was nervous as you can see on the finished interview 😉

After the interview we talked on and it was a very interesting conversation as you can imagine 😉 And Martin was so kind to sign all the covers, posters and pictures I brought along. When we left the scenery we get backstage passes – so I was really in heaven. First, I interviewed one of my musical heroes, secondly I was able to be backstage with my favorite group. I felt the massive amount of serotonin coming up in my body and so I watched the performance with a BIG smile all the time 😉

During the performance I wandered through the people – but nevertheless I enjoyed every minute of the show. The setlist was the same as in Bad Reichenhall. Also the „My Friend Harvey“ joke with the rabbit on stage during the „Mayhem Jig„. And unfortunately I also remembered when Martin did a little mistake during the opening riffs of „Aqualung„. I was quite sure that he disappointed himself in some way, because he is a perfectionist and this is one of the reason why Mr. Barre has a big reputation in the music scene.

KAIZERS ORCHESTRA – Vienna (Donauinselfest – FM4 Stage – Open Air)

My first live experience with Kaizers Orchestra – an outstanding band from Norway! The show was part of the so called „Donauinselfest“ in Vienna. This festival takes place on an island on the Danube every year and it’s completely free. The Kaizers played as the last band on the FM4 stage and when you walked around the island you have to watch your steps because of splinters of glass, drunken people and it seemed that there was a huge alcoholic cloud all over the place.

Anyway – the band didn’t disappoint me and they proved again why many people think that Kaizers Orchestra is one of the best live bands. Although all songs are sung in Norwegian the music and the performance hooked everybody immediately. If you have the chance to see this band live on stage – just be there! You won’t trust your ears and eyes when you see Kaizers Orchestra live the very first time! But be warned: You can be disappointed when you see them again, because the performances (apart from the setlist) don’t change very much.

JETHRO TULL- Vienna (Arena – Open Air)
Support by Georg Nussbaumer

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Jethro Tull me and my friends went to Vienna to see Ian Anderson & Co. performing at the open air location Arena. The Austrian musician Georg Nussbaumer did a fine support job. The blind piano player cheered us up in an entertaining way.

Then it was the fifth time for me seeing Jethro Tull live in action. The band performed in an excellent way and also the setlist was very good chosen. Songs from the beginning like „My Sunday Feeling„, classics („Living in the Past„), hits („Locomotive Breath„), rarities („Black Sunday„) and also newer stuff („This is not Love„) took us on a fantastic ride through the last 25 years of the band’s history. As Jethro Tull played two days later in Wels again it was obvious that we have to be there too 😉

FAIRPORT CONVENTION – Seeham (Seebühne – Open Air)

As a huge fan of Jethro Tull I always wanted to see long time bass player Dave Pegg with his band Fairport Convention. Finally I made it and it was just perfect – a wonderful location on the lake called Obertrumer See. Simon Nicol (lead vocals, guitar), Ric Sanders (violin), Gerry Conway (drums) and Chris Leslie (mandolin, fiddle and vocals) played songs from the last 45 years band history and so I get an amazing performance with all classics, rarities and hits from their huge backcatalogue 😉
