On this video you can check a interviews with the band and images from James visiting that hotel and feeding a kind of Dolphing you only can find there, called Boto, and also images of Klaus and Pawel visiting the Opera House in Manaus, Teatro Amazonas. I remember that I wanted to visit the theater, but it’s always closed, except when there is an spectacle or you are a rockstar and ask to visit it as Klaus Meine did. There are realy beautiful images on this video and I’m sure there are so much more material than it’s showed on this edited one.
Too bad the quality of the concert recording in Manaus 2007 was terrible, because the local TV didn't make a good job, then the band had to record that one in Recife the following year, which didn’t make any sense, since the DVD is called Amazônia and it was not recorded in Amazônia at all. They have played in Manaus also in 2008 and, this time, except for Matthias, all the band had a boat trip through the beautiful Rio Negro and Amazonas River and some experiences with the indians, like eating crocodile meat. And that is weird why this kind of material couldn’t be include as bonus on the DVD, all they did was to include a shortcut video from Klaus overflying the rainforest. I think Sony really sucks to create such kind of things.
Anyway, there is a chance to do another recording, in Greece. They can really do a great one. They are going to Greece, the cradle of Western civilization, a place where you can breathe history and culture. There is a chance to do a great recording as they did in Saarbrücken, but this time, they can’t miss the beauty of the place they are playing on. Greek culture is one of the basis of our own culture, even on university I have to study it. What kind of making of could do among the Greek ruins, a classical Greek theater? The fans are with great expectations for this DVD, and as I can see by the comments, afraid of it becoming a kind of Acoustica 2.
God, one of my dreams is to visit Greece, and I would do it few months ago when I was in Europe, but I had no more money or time to do that. Then now I realize my favorite band is going to make a recording there. As if it was possible, I was thinking if I could get a week off my job, they I could visit Greece and see the Scorpions, maybe if the plane tickets are not that expensive... but what a dream, I would to sell my soul to be able to be there. So... I hope they will do a really great recording, from the concert and making of, this way those who couldn’t be there, can feel a bit more about the atmosphere of the place
