True fans will easily recognize which concert I'm going to tonight just by looking at this picture.

Update: Back from the concert. Good stuff. The support group was a bit lame, as their name already suggested, but the main act lived up to the expectations, even though their second guitarist was ill and therefore absent. Romantik!

A good concert, indeed, but I missed the second guitar. And "All across the Universe" wasn't sooo necessary at the end. But nevertheless...

Horst said on March 8, 2006 09:39 AM:

Yes. Don't ask me why, but for some reason I'd hoped they would play some Johnny Cash song as the third encore, so I was a bit disappointed about "Across the Universe" as well. I like concerts that close with fast songs.

Where did you find that picture? Haven't see a tram like that for years, they're all these low floor thingies now.

Oh, and the flags usually only fly during the "fifth season" ;-)

It's in this year's Tramway Yearbook. Apparently there was some 125-year jubilee in 2005, so they had some vintage trams running.

I think it was DerStandard that said it hasn't been such a good idea to perform without the ill guitarist and the one guitar they had was a "Kindergartentantegitarre".

[Oh. No HTML allowed anymore. The italic-tag was of no use anyway, though.]

Yes, Mr. Schachinger's review in Der Standard was somewhere between "reserved" and "mean". It wasn't that bad, but some songs dragged noticeably without the solos, and I felt that the band lost some of their enthusiasm about mid-way through the programme, possibly because they felt that the songs didn't work as well as they should. Still, I've had a lot worse concerts than this.
