Re: Düsseldorf 06/16/2008 setlistwatch


POWER CUT! That´s the key word of this incredible night. Just got back from the show. And what a show it was. Halfway through the first song the power to the right side of the stage including Bruce´s guitar and mikrophone was gone. The screens went black. After the system was restarted, Bruce said that they somehow were meant to start with something different. Halfway through Radio Nowhere when Clarence just started his solo... power failure again. That man can blow away electricity. Bruce went to the pit, shook hands and collected requests. One of them was Trapped, which was fullfilled a little later much to the joy of the audience. When they did Radio Nowhere again you could see a huge grin on Bruce´s face, like, when will the power go of again. Once again, a fantastic show of a band completely on fire. Lofgren, Lofgren, Lofgren, his Because the Night solo is getting better with every concert. Did I think he was brilliant when I saw him last December? Yes, I did. Did he become even better during the last 6 months? Yes, he did. I´m running out of my limited vocabulary to describe tonights show. I´m German, in some fashion, you know. Can´t wait to see the band again on Saturday.

Regarding power cut: We were in the car after the show and after half an hour the cars in front of us were moving. Good time to start the car and drive home, I thought and turned the key. Nothing happened. A German car and a German driver
....impossible that the car wouldn´t start one would think. They must have taken the electricity to run the show from the battery of my car. I´m glad they did, the show was indescribably good. We finally found a couple in a car behind us who had a jump lead and we could start my car. So, home sweet home we reached and sleeping I will not. Too great a show still running around my brain.

Note to myself: Do not take your Dad´s car to a concert even if you need more than two seats. The battery may be low. Find a better solution.

I don´t care for spelling mistakes tonight, my friendes, because.... I just don´t care. If you get the slightest chance to see the band during this tour: grab it, they seem to be better than ever.

But, Danny, you have been missed.

Bruce was apparently as excited as the crowd: "Ladies and gentlemen, I've had an erection lasting more than four hours — I should get to the emergency room. But first!..."

Thank you.

I miss all the reviews we used to have in the "old days". It was so fantastic to read so many different views and takes on the shows.

Hats off to you, PB for carrying on the good tradition of reviews.

So see you on Saturday. Are you on the field?

I might feel tempted to write a review again on Sunday morning!

Oh, yes, sorry, that should have been English speaking folks.

I guess they don´t want to meet my no more.
