Part 4: Scorpions
After some waiting, but not as long as for this part 4
, Scorpions came on stage
. They went through
the usual songs we all know from previous concerts. When looking at my left side, it was touching to see how genuinly happy and enthousiastic Alizee was. I never really get emotional from the music or anything, but seeing how happy it can make some people, is doing something with cold blooded me. After Coast to coast
as usual Klaus gave his plectrum to one of the pretty girls in the front. This time it was Mline who was the chosen one. I did have the feeling he must have thought she had to be the artist who made that beautiful banner
. Mline is a real artist artist
and she also looks like one.
From when I heard it the first time, in April 2010 in Mons, untill now, The best is yet to come
has really become a well known and appreciated singalong song at concerts. I also always like the acoustic part
after that (did someone say something about a rockbeast?
). Unfortunately my livestream of Holiday
went wrong due to technical difficulties.Dynamite
was not only distorted on the phone, Adriana, it also sounded a bit, I don't know, overamplified or something where your reporter was.
To be honest, the Kottak attack
is already boring me a bit after some concerts. I know the rest of the concert is also always the same, but especially this part is, for me, really a kind of break in the concert. But I guess that is what the function of it is, to give the other bandmembers a short break/rest about halfway the concert. But the good thing of the drumsolo is that you know, after it, one of the highlights
of every concert is coming.Big City Nights
was streamed to Lenita, because of the pyramid connection. And the sound was very clear during this song, yes.
It must have been during one of the usual
" that Alizee and Mline wanted to tell me something but I didn't understand. Finally Alizee said "launch it!" and then I understood they wanted me to throw the banner on the stage. I found the audience very enthousiastic and participating, and we also got "When the smoke is going down
". Normally it was finished after that, but the people kept shouting and clapping their hands, in or out rhythm. I saw Rudy and Klaus talking, and then Rudy went to talk to someone backstage, and they came back one more time, and played "Always somewhere
". It was not written on the setlist so it was really a Zugabe in the true meaning of it. That was really a nice gesture of them, and of all the Scorps concerts I've been to, if any crowd deserved it, it was this one. Especially during this last song, I wanted to call someone's number, but the line wasn't free, just like in the song. That's partly why, after the show, I had to make a short call home
, before we could leave for Bielefeld
, I hope my travel companions didn't mind too much the waiting.
When I find some time, I will try to write something short about Berlin as well.
