29.03.2011 Kaizers Orchestra (Centralstation, Darmstadt)

Wow, it was hoooooot! Not only while sitting in the sun in the afternoon, but also at the concert… Actually, I had expected much fewer people at Centralstation, but no: it was packed! And because of that, it felt a bit like a sauna after a while… and I guess that’s a nice way to summarize the concert and the atmosphere in the audience: The concert was great, the audience was excited, but you couldn’t really get yourself to move. At least in the audience… I didn’t really mind that though. I loved the concert, but I have to admit that the atmosphere wasn’t as amazing as in Cologne, for example. This was a bit of a pity, but then, there were so (unexpectedly!) many people in the audience that the concert just had to be good.

I think Kaizers finally found the perfect setlist now; won’t mind if they stick to it (with a bit of variation in the encores of course *g*): Intro, Delikatessen, Djevelens orkester, Señor Torpedo, Veterans klage, Sigøynerblod, Resistansen, Philemon Arthur & The Dung, Din kjole lukter bensin mor, En for orgelet en for meg, Diamant til kull, Psycho under min hatt, Svarte katter & flosshatter, Hjerteknuser, Ompa til du dør, Bøn fra helvete, Kontroll på kontinentet, Maestro. Encore KGB and Bak et halleluja.

As I wrote before – it was hot, and hot temperatures obviously cause memory malfunctions. =;-) So I don’t really remember a lot… and honestly, there wasn’t really much “special” happening during the concert. Most things were just “like always”… like the Jackal’s cute attempts to speak German (he still translates the song as “eins für DAS Orgel”, and he’s very polite when asking the audience “singen Sie bitte!”), Hellraizer’s Indian name in the introduction (“He who hangs his head under towels and gladly gives his picks away”), the drum in En for orgelet was back again, and Omen was the hero of the song Svarte katter. In addition, there was a short commercial break, when Killmaster advertised the jewelry shop next door (“I bought some jewelry there today, it’s quite affordable!”), followed by the weather report, brought to you by Hellraizer (“Tomorrow will be sunny bla bla bla…”). Diamand til kull is a pop song that they normally don’t play in Germany, but they wanted to try it out again. And Hjerteknuser is the song that starts right at the moment when the towel (that the Jackal dropped from up on the barrel) hits the ground. Oh yes, and Mr. Terje Killmaster also known as the Photographer deserved his name tonight and entered the stage with a camera. And he was not afraid to use it. =;-)

Hmm… feels like this was a strange report, somehow. But then, it was… hot. And great! =:-)
