Title: Revolution Tour Impressions
Post by: lacrima_mosanium on September 24, 2012, 04:35:25
Ok everyone. I just came back from Warsaw and here's the very first setlist of this tour :)

What are your impressions? I think it's missing I lost my star in Krasnodar, Verloren and Kelch der Liebe but well, one can't have everything ;) Especially because the whole show was so long it needed a break. Anyway, I'm still excited, the show was simply amazing, words cannot describe the feelings that I have right now. Met so many great people who share the same love for music. Going to sleep in a few minutes to be fresh and ready to see our dearest Tilo in Cracow ^^

I only wish they had harlequin figurine in their shop but they didn't. And I've been saving money to buy him for such a long time. Gotta visit HOS Shop I guess and pay those terribly high shipping costs...

WOA! I've only listened to Am Ende stehen wir Zwei once, so I really really hope we get to listen to this one in Latinamerican tour!

And Rote Sinfonie? Oh dear, please DON'T tell us how it was like live, I want to fucking feel my spinal cord explode when I listen to it!

If it's gonna be the same setlist in the same order in Vienna tomorrow I can only say; I'll be a dead person. But on the other hand there are songs on it I'd really hoped for them to play them live *^*

Thanks for sharing :) and have a great time tonight!

Only one thing I can say right now- Tilo (hope you will see it) THANK YOU FOR TRANEN DER SEHNSUCHT - I forget to told you about it yesterday, maybe because I were so freezed  ;D
I have discovered a new better side of "Revolution" after this show.
I hope that someday I will hear Der letzte Hilfeschrei live... I will probably fall down on my knees if my dream will come true  :P

Jenn- unfortunately I have only this one video because honestly I didn't want to waste my time on taking pictures or making videos. It seemed for me quite uncomfortable because I was dancing, jumping and screaming for the whole concert (: I often just can't stand still while listening to L  :D And, by the way, the quality of my camera's filming is really poor... but all in all it is still some kind of souvenir.
And yes- Tilo was playing guitar in a few songs during that show but these moments when he threw his arms across the piano and started to play were much, much more impressive...

OMFG 27 tracks?? That's a lot isn't it?
I think Feuerzug is the one I'd kill to watch live the most.. My god it's a great tracklist!!
Thank you so much for sharing!

Stjarna thank you for the video! Excellent quality!

People who went / are going: me wants more videos please! :D:D:D

I feel a little out of place, suddenly. Everyone love the setlist but me...  :(

I like those songs, but none of them are in my favourites list. I was expecting other songs, actually.
But of course, as a friend said a few hours ago, I'd love Lacrimosa's concert even if Tilo decides to sing 'La cucaracha'.

+1 !!! :D :D :D i am SO glad it's on there XD
And the whole setlist is pretty awesome, all my classic ones plus so many of the new CD, and its length is awesome tooooo :D my only regret is that there isn't This is the night :( :( :( but maybe it will change a little from concert to concert??? *hopes very much*

Also thanks for sharing setlist and videos... but i'll be watching only the first for now U.U

This concert wat a total madness, lasted about 3.5 hours, with a 0.5 hour break in the middle of the gig. I really enjoyed it much, most of my favourites from Elodia were played, I was very much impressed when Tilo played the piano, and guitar ^^ Omfg.

Remember our 2-hours waiting behind their bus, to get signs and photos? ;)  But finally, they came :D  Our friend, who took these photos, told me, that no later than tommorrow evening, he will send me all of these, so I will post...
I stll can't believe, I hugged Tilo! :) And Anne.... :)

"sighs" Want another concert!

Post by: lacrima_mosanium on September 24, 2012, 23:42:18
Oh, unlucky me. When Tilo was signing CDs and posing for photos with people during the break I was very far in the line and when my turn came Tilo said that he has to go because the show is long and they won't be able to finish on time. I hoped that maybe today in Cracow I'll manage to get that photo I dreamed of but no - they didn't come out at all! There were only some passes for the band's friends. Why Tilo? Why??? :'( I've been waiting for these gigs for so long and despite what you wrote on facebook this surprise signing during the break was only in Warsaw in the end. Very unfair for the people who went only to Cracow.

Another huge disappointment of today's gig. Copycat was on the setlist which I managed to get today (the one from yesterday was a picture I took with permission of a girl who got it) but they didn't play it :o Bizzare... the rest of the setlist was exactly the same so you can expect that the whole tour will contain these songs.

If someone is interested in the sound of this concert version of Ein Hauch von Menschlichkeit I have uploaded it on facebook.

Sorry, the 24th September show is already over?  :o what time is it there?

Dear, I'm so sorry about your disappointment. Was it the first time you saw them on stage?
There are things that seem to be unfair... Like, why this surprise here and not there.. But we have to understand that when it comes to fanatism, evrything is unfair... simply because it's irrational. You should think it's unfair for US fans that they could never see Lacrimosa in their country... and you can even think it's unfair that the cleaning lady at Tilo's studio is sick of listening to his songs...
I can't comfort you for your desillusion, all I can give you is this rationalization of the facts. Facts are sad. But hey, at least you got something ;)

Btw, thank you for the vid. This version is pretty different, and I like it a lot ;)
Hugs!!

Severdul - No, it was my 3rd time seeing them and not even once got a chance to have a photo. In 2009 I got autographs from both Anne and Tilo but they were separated from us by some kind of barrier and there was no such possibility to get to them and have one. 

And speaking of fanatism - there were no such excesses that someone was jumping on Tilo or screaming when he came out. People were calm and stood in line. That's why I just don't understand the band's decision. And I am disappointed because they wrote this on facebook few weeks back: My dears, this goes out to the folks from Poland, the Czeck Republik and parts of Switzerland and everyone who joines the concerts not speaking german! Well, after revealing the tracklist of "Revolution" let me tell you reasons why this tour is called "Tour: Revolution"! This time we enter the stage without any supporting act for the first time (in Europe)! Reason is that we are playing an extra long show plus it will be devided into two acts! And between the two acts you might discover kind of a surprise! Well... there was no surprise in Cracow... :/

And another 'like' button for yours, too, haaaaaa!!! Now I can imagine the cleaning lady at HoS studios thinking: 'oh, please, no, not stolzes Herz again!!!'...

Ok, a new idea for Lacrimosa's next visit in argentina: let's try to teach tilo 'la cucaracha'...

I understand your dissapointing, I wouldn't be happy, either... Here in Argentina we're lucky. We had already two special intimate (I don't know if that's the correct word) concerts, followed by a meet and greet. And the last we had was for only 160 people. Wich meant that there was time for all of us. So, yes, I understand: if I went to a concert expecting that, I'd be dissapointed.

Maria! Thanks for sharing the set list and your impressions!  ;D seems like it was a beautiful concert :3
And about the set list I love it!! because I didn't expect to hear songs like Tränen der Sehnsucht or Ein hauch von menschlichkeit in this tour, so is very exciting for me know that I will hear these songs live!!  ;D ;D and that extra large show O.O oh my God!! 27 songs!? really!?  :o SO GREAT!! I can't waaaait for Latinamerica tour!  ;D ;D ;D


I stll can't believe, I hugged Tilo! :) And Anne.... :)

"sighs" Want another concert!
Oooh Lucky you!! ^^  ;D

I'd love Lacrimosa's concert even if Tilo decides to sing 'La cucaracha'.
That would be so funny! xD but I would love it anyway  :)

But hey! I always thought that that was more important than photos. Last time I could meet them, we were lining to get our autographs, and most people used those precious little seconds to take a picture with them. The last thing I was thinking was where my camera was!! All I had in my head was: hear them now, see them now, share this time with them now, 'cause no photo is going to give you this moment back to you.
You might have some pictures or not - the bottom line is, you were there and that truth stays in your heart forever. Pictures get lost, hard-disks get formatted, facebook goes down.. :P

I didn't think so. Actually I figured the people from Poland would be as respectful. Things can get nasty in South or Central America.. but European culture is so different.
Anyway, I'm happy this was so, even though it wasn't enough for them to spend a while with you :(

Well, I didn't know that. I understand your disappointment. Maybe it wasn't their fault..
At least you got the 3-hour long show!! (And I'm not only saying this because the longest the better  - I also remember extremely painful hours of waiting for the support bands to finish... :P)

I'm sorry you're so disappointed... but know that whatever the reason was that this didn't take place in Cracow was not to hurt you, don't take it personal! Maybe it was not possible due to organisation or something or he/they just didn't feel like it which is in the end understandable seeing touring and specially such long shows must ask a lot of energy from them. They are alone and how many people were there demanding some precious attention from them? It's not only difficult to deal with when having a huge crowd that doesn't stand still, but I think always seeing the crowd remains the same. It's not selfevident in my eyes that they do this... but I understand your disappointment of course!! Just try to think of the great moments you had during the concert :) it's really worth a lot on its own already.

Kitty, Severdul - thanks for your words, it made me feel a little bit better. I don't want to be mad at my favourite band or anything. The person who told us they won't come out and will allow only people with passes was their manager. And today I read on facebook that they did came out. But I have no idea when and where 'cause I've been waiting for over an hour after the show and still there was no sign that they would, bodyguards and everyone from the staff said the same thing over and over again: "They're not coming out." Ahhh... now I'm angry at myself :-\

Of course the photo is not that important as is talking with them and I had that chance before. But well... it would be such a great memento to have it on my desk. And I'm looking for a chance to finally get it since 2005. They have been in Poland in 2001, 2005, 2009 and this year. Taking that under consideration I will have to wait for another 3 or 4 years. That's what makes me sad. I'm afraid that a band playing for over 20 years now may eventually split up (oh God, please don't) and I might never see them again.

Anyway... I'm waiting for a relation from the gig in Vienna girls :)

And that's our impressions from ... monday actually, because it was after hours of waiting in freezing cold temperature. But when they came out... everything has quickly changed into a warm atmosphere and amazing meeting like an old friends with hugs and smiles and all that stuff :) . I'm really shocked, it was my second meeting with L and I am still impressed how great people They are!
Lady_in_red- yessss I remember hugging talking and FREEEEEEZING :D And the smell of their supper after the concert :D But that kind of meetings are always worth every "suffering";)
Lacrima_mosanium- I understand what did you feel then but don't worry- I'm pretty sure that they will record a lot of albums in the future and during their tours you'll be able to talk with them and take pictures of you and Lacri together :) The most important is you saw them live on stage for 3 hours!!
I knew before the gig that Tilo will be meeting with fans in merchandise between those two acts but I didn't want to go there at that moment because that crowd was pretty terrifying and honestly- sometimes people (not all of them of course- I don't want to affront anyone who was just waiting patiently for his time) were like animals. it's a shame but I observe this kind of situations always on many concerts in Poland :/ Fanatism is a sickness ...
There is always a chance to meet them behind the bus but it demands a lot of patience and time. It wasn't so long meeting like in 2009 when those special tickets allowed us to go on backstage (but it was quite unfair- I was really lucky to have one) but it was more intimate(only a few fans left) and brought a lot of good feelings.

Great pictures girls. I hope to one day have one like these myself ::)

Stjarna - I couldn't stay after the gig in Warsaw because I had a train right away and I had to be in Cracow on time. The show was so long that I thought I'm gonna be late for it. If not for a friend of mine who came for me and two of my friends by car and gave us a lift to the train station I wouldn't make it to Cracow on time...

I don't know where you were standing but I was in front row next to a lovely German girl Tina who kept a place for me when I went to see what's going on during the break. I stood in line but there were so many people. Imagine Tilo smiling at you and saying that he has to go when it was your turn. If only one person before me wasn't there I would be the lucky one. I hope they come back soon but it seems that 2015 or 2016 is the closest. But I'm happy I was in Warsaw because the show was much better thanks to the crowds. Believe me, people in Cracow woke up on Stolzes Herz when Tilo said this is the last song. During the rest of the show (which was 2 encore songs) people were clapping and jumping but before only some girls in the first row on the left were having fun, me in the 2nd and two guys on my left. After the break I couldn't get to my previous place and ended up in between 4th and 5th row - it wasn't nice of the people whom I asked that I'll be back and they promised to keep my place safe but in the end they didn't. Warsaw rocked, Cracow... not so much when it comes to the people.

I think there are too many songs and I love, I just hope that when the time of the presentations are well LATAM.

@Jenn Tilo here a video of guitar playing. Wonderful!

When I saw the setlist I thought the same! Where's Verloren? It's my favourite Revolution song!

As to keep your place in the front row: you were sitting? Because keeping a place there, if you're standing might be imposible!

Dear lacrima_mosanium,
I understand how you feel about the concert in Warsaw, I've been there too and in the break left the concert hall too late (in 10 min.) so I saw Tilo in 2 meters in front of me but couldn't get close enough to have his sign and to talk to him ;-( He soon had to go and play the second part of the gig.  15 years had passed since I heard his songs firstly and started to dream of meeting Lacrimosa in reality.  Can you imagine that?      I and my friends have made a long way from Russia to see Lacrimosa alive and all emotions from that performance and exciting atmosphere covered the fail with authograph. So don't give up because you may see them a bit more often than we, the russian fans :)
I tried to make a lot of videos in full lenth so let me offer you as compassion the video of the one of the songs you would like to have most of others - just tell the name of the song and I'll check if it has been recorded in full, ok?
Maybe it will help make your low spirits a bit higher, hah?

Thank you everyone for your stories and photos!! Highly appreciated. ^^

Maria, sorry you didn't get the chance to directly meet the band but at least you were in front row. :) There will always be next time as Lacrimosa tours Europe a lot!

Dul: @US fans hahah .. hi hi..  *slowly falls into sinkhole*

And I saw warsaw photos the other night and noticed this: Very strong resemblance to your avatar, Miss Lacrimosa_Mosanium. XDD :P

I tried to make a lot of videos in full lenth so let me offer you as compassion the video of the one of the songs you would like to have most of others - just tell the name of the song and I'll check if it has been recorded in full, ok?
Maybe it will help make your low spirits a bit higher, hah?


Such a pity we haven't met, if I only knew we could make some kind of before-party, maybe next time? ;) I had exactly the same situation. I was afraid that I'm gonna loose my place in the 1st row in front of Tilo and no one was screaming that he came out or anything. If only someone told us but no... I decided that I have to go pee and it was 10 or 15 minutes after the break started. Thankfully my new German friend Tina offered to keep the place for me. Maybe you saw me when I was asking Tilo for just one photo and he said that he has to go? That was so heartbreaking.

I've recorded 5 songs (3 in Warsaw and 2 in Cracow) but I'm missing my favourites from this setlist: Halt mich, Alleine zu zweit and Feuer. Did you manage to film those? I was too busy jumping and singing on these three to even think about taking my camera out xD

When I saw the setlist I thought the same! Where's Verloren? It's my favourite Revolution song!

As to keep your place in the front row: you were sitting? Because keeping a place there, if you're standing might be imposible!


Mine too, and after the gigs I must say that the second is Revolution :) As you can see on the photo below we were not sitting xD I kept my place only thanks to this beautiful lady in the middle as I mentioned it before. I wish I knew more than her name and whether she's on the forum or not. Tina, if you're here, reveal your identity! ;D But in Cracow I was in the 2nd row and after the break I ended up in 4th or 5th (the borderline wasn't that clear). 

ansthsia Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I was searching for such photo today because I saw two photographers taking photos of the public but I found only this. I'm impressed you recognized me :D

Stjarna and lady_in_red: Very cute photos!!  ;D ;D


When I saw the setlist I thought the same! Where's Verloren? It's my favourite Revolution song!
It's my favourite too!!  ;D but maybe Verloren isn't in the setlist because it's lost!! xD  ;D

Maria : Tina is one of the Lacriladies from the Schattenspiel special show in WGT!! :) I do think she's got an account here but doesn't use it that much :) and you look great on the pictures!!!

cool pictures you got there :) really nice! Also the one with Tina ^^ she's indeed one of the Lacriladies :)


So gonna share my impressions of tonight and will do so now that it's fresh in memories even if I want to sleeeeeeeep!
A blast... a bless... a little bit crazy... but more than amazing!
For the first time in my life I think, no actually the second time, I realised that my patience isn't endless... but the waiting was worth every sec! Once the door opened to the concerthall we tried to make it to the front row as to my opinion things just really get that extra when you stand there you have more feeling with the entire stage with what's happening up there and you feel the response to your own emotions more clearly. Anyways, that's how I sense it. When it started all I thought was "omg, is this real? omg I'm on a lacrimosaconcert...omg this is not real someone pinch me!" but it was real alright. They were getting on stage and luckily we didn't have to wait so very long for Tilo get on neither, a blessing for all the waiting of before hahaha :) as usual I tried to look everywhere but him a bad habit and as with every bad habit difficult to undo yourself off... instead I focused a bit on Henrik's guitar for as far as that was possible as he was quite hidden behind the keyboard (but my guitarhero was there and I just had to look him in the eyes :)). What I liked aaaaaa looooot was that Tilo talked a lot during the show and as difficult as it is to focus on what he says because even when he just speaks he sings; I caught some words of him tonight on stage right before "Weil du Hilfe brauchst" started that hit me straight in the heart in a positive way more than he can possibly ever imagine ... it put me in such an emotional shock that I had to fight my tears hard the song(s) after (mèèèh dann bin ich halt die kalte Belgierin die nicht gerne vor anderen Leute weint) It was also due to the fact that the second part of the show started with Refugium a song that goes through and through live even more than on disc; shivers down my spine and somehow gone from this planet... the song after was then "ich verlasse" a song that haunts me day and night since I heard it the very first time... all together it took me some time to get over the huge emotions it evoked ... you know the saying "things won't ever be the same again" well things won't ever be the same again after tonight. Anne looked amazing, was amazing, sung amazing, performed amazing... Apart tore me to pieces and well awesome lady she is; girlpower I'd say :) I screamed my voice out and then I recalled; fuuuuuu I have an audition on Friday "shut up Kitty" but as it seems it's just a natural reflex to scream like a mad when you're experiencing Lacrimosa live ... well my voice is already back :) and now I'm going to prepare for a short night of sleep tomorrow I'm leaving Vienna and ... I'll thank God specially for tonight. Because some things you cannot explain, they're said but somehow not said, felt deep in the heart in your soul and you just know that it changes the rest of your life at that very moment... how eyes can say what words could never do.

Kitty: thanks for share our impressions!! I'm glad that you enjoyed the beautiful show! ;D

[ I'm afraid that a band playing for over 20 years now may eventually split up (oh God, please don't) and I might never see them again.
But why do you think that? ... I've heard some comments of this kind about Lacrimosa, and that scares me!  :o

Your relation is great Kitty, I shared the same feelings just 2 days ago. It's still unreal for me. And not looking at Tilo when you're right in front of him is hard indeed. I tried to look more at Anne and the bassist but most of the time it was Tilo I was looking at xD In Poland Weil du Hilfe brauchst was dedicated to Tomasz Beksiński who made Lacrimosa popular in his radio show. Even though Tilo and Anne never had a chance to meet him personally because he commited suicide in 1999 (and Lacrimosa's first gig in our country was 2 years after that) but he said whenever they visit Poland, they think about him and what he did for Lacrimosa to have so devoted audience.

Fannie, it's not that I'm thinking they will. It's just one of my biggest fears... everyone has some :-[

Lacrima_mosanium,
Such a pity we haven't met, if I only knew we could make some kind of before-party, maybe next time? ;)


You know, dear Lacrima_mosanium, it seems to me we both did have a little talk with you (correct me if I'm wrong)! Do you remember, before the concert started you asked two boys of somthing but they could not give any answer as they were Russians and did not know English at all? I stood just near them, turned around and saw you and told you that if you wanted tell anything to them so you might apply to me for translation, and you agreed:)) Was that girl you? I had a black-red shirt on and glasses and we stood in the first line on the right side of the scene, opposite Anne Nurmi. I'd like to talk to you and discuss anything :) Do you live in Warsaw? Would you come to us, to Russia for a day or two to see our LAcrimosa fans that visited this gig on 23/09/12 ? It would be great!!!


"Maybe you saw me when I was asking Tilo for just one photo and he said that he has to go? That was so heartbreaking."

Yes, I remember clearly that pity moment and saw you there and the crowd which didn't want to desperse... and our best hopes crashed into pieces :((  I think the guy with light hair who pictured with Tilo was the last lucky one and he stole too much time.....


One of members in our fan-group (group-mate) Julia told me before the gig that she had been dreaming of seeing and picturing with Tilo since she heard LAcrimosa music at the first time. It was the dream of her whole life!!! During the song "Ohne dich ist alles nichts" Tilo suddenly went to our side of the scene and SAT DOWN ON EDGE OF THE SCENE JUST OPPOSITE JULIA AND WATCHED RIGHT INTO HER EYES!!!! I stood straight behind her and was either shocked and greatly impressed as well as was Julia!!!! Julia told me later that her heart started to beat so loud and fast as it could jump out of her chest :)) This is one of the most increadable moments of the evening and we will keep our memories for many years!!!! We both felt that Tilo looked straight into our eyes!! I recorded all this song on video and this pretty moment too for good and lovely memory!!! By the way today we gonna meet with Julia and maye watch this recording together to recall so sweet and recent memories :)) I also made a number of fotos from the gig, but the professional ones look better as they were made from the first line.


"Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I was searching for such photo today because I saw two photographers taking photos of the public but I found only this. I'm impressed you recognized me :D "

You see, Lacrima_mosanium, in this picture I recognized another girl-fellow from our fan-group, on the left edge of the foto, her nickname Evangelina Krammen (Alina) and I stood behind her :) Thanks for this wonderful pix!!! But you look so excited in this picture and your eyes are filled with happiness and joy, that's great!!!


"I've recorded 5 songs (3 in Warsaw and 2 in Cracow) but I'm missing my favourites from this setlist: Halt mich, Alleine zu zweit and Feuer. Did you manage to film those? I was too busy jumping and singing on these three to even think about taking my camera out xD

Lucky you are, LAcrima mosanium, I have "Alleine zu zweit" and "Feuer" in full lengh, but the size of files is too large so you can send me your personal e-mail in my inner messege service here:)

Generally in 1998 I prepared self-made video clip on song "Mein zweites Herz" as Lacriomosa didn't make oficial clip on this song at all. I used only two video-cassette recorders and my analg videocamera :) After that I translated 6 songs into Russian and ann interview after "Elodia" was released, for russian unofficial Lacrimosa fan-site :) I'm a translator.

P.S. Everything was so exciting that day and night When our mini-van was coming back to the border with Russia and we all were happy and full of unforgettable impressions and emotions, and everyone in the fan-group thought of happiness and how sometimes it is needed too little to have it - just to see the favorite artists, fans and performance.......
It was surprizing but late at night on the radio sounded a beautiful song with the following words in refrain: "It's amazing, it's amazing, it's my heart sing......"  So soft and tender femaile voice..... It was a great pleasure to listen to it in the night......

Best wishes to all Lacrimosa fans all over the world!!!

No, I don't think that was me. Before the show I only shook hands with lady_in_red, Stjarna and a girl that was with them. Then I was talking with my friend and a girl we met there - that was outside. When we were already inside I was mostly talking with Tina and a guy to my right (you were probably standing near him) who shouted some things to Anne, like "bravo" and so on xD I had a black blouse with long wide sleeves and a deep violet long skirt. Do you remember anyone is such outfit? Before the gig I was sitting on the bench to the left with two of my friends (one was blonde). Unfortunately I don't live in Warsaw and I would love to visit Russia but right now I don't have a passport and little money to afford such trip. It depends when and where will you be meeting. On Monday I'm back on my University and there's no way I could go for such a trip during the semester :-\

And now I'm not sure if you saw me or you're speaking about that girl who talked to you friend xD But I was right in front of Tilo when he said that he has to go and I almost begged him: "One photo, pleaseeee" and asked if they're gonna meet with the fans after the show but he said he doesn't know if there will enough be time ;<

One of members in our fan-group (group-mate) Julia told me before the gig that she had been dreaming of seeing and picturing with Tilo since she heard LAcrimosa music at the first time.

I remember that moment so well. I think I saw your friend to whom Tilo was singing. That's a great story to tell your future kids ;)

But you look so excited in this picture and your eyes are filled with happiness and joy, that's great!!!

When I saw this photo for the first time I thought exactly the same thing. I have my eyes up and dreamy-looking face. And I was clapping my hands so on this photo it looks almost like a prayer ::)

"I've recorded 5 songs (3 in Warsaw and 2 in Cracow) but I'm missing my favourites from this setlist: Halt mich, Alleine zu zweit and Feuer. Did you manage to film those? I was too busy jumping and singing on these three to even think about taking my camera out xD

Was that song called Jem - It's Amazing? ;) I think I heard it in a car that day, too when my friend was giving me a lift to the train station after the show :D I know how you felt, I had exactly the same mix of emotions in my heart after the show and I still can go back to normal, I'm still living with those memories ^^ As we all are :)

@Maria
don't want to be rude or anything, but not having a photo with Tilo and Anne is partly your own fault. wherever i met them, they were taking photos with their fans even if there were fences standing inbetween. the only thing you have to do in this case, is to ask. they never say "no"  ;)  :)  but you can really be happy for having attending 2 concerts, there are people who have never had a chance to attend one themselves  ;)   however, i understand you're disappointed about the surprise not having happened at the second concert as well, probably i would have felt the same, so i won't say anything about it. i believe they had reasons for it. also, about dropping Copycat ... they dropped it last night in Vienna as well [  :'(  ], i asked Henrik and Anne why, they didn't say much, but i figured out there were some difficulties or something, not really sure ... my sis told them to play it next time, haha  ;D


i will share my impressions during this week, probably weekend. i'm really tired, i only slept 3 hours and then i had to catch my train. i only came home at 3.30 in the afternoon, i work tomorrow and on friday, so i should really rest a bit before i do anything  :D  *still editing photos ... almost 300*  ;D

I do know they are very polite but in 2009 (where those barriers were) I was on their gig and in that club for the first time and the bodyguards said we can only wait in line for our turn to take autographs and nothing more. I'm rather kind and calm so I didn't want to do anything against their wish. Now I see that the bodyguards are very often lying, also about the band coming out or not. And this year I didn't even get the chance to get the photo even though I was asking, too many people got out during the break I guess... but I'm not that upset anymore. I'm not the only one, so many people incl. my two friends didn't even get their autographs which I didn't care about that much as I've got them already. None of us could wait for them after the show because we had to catch our trains/buses. Same thing as with Alex...

Hm... we have to solve that Copycat mystery. Maybe they have lost the recording of the parts that cannot be played live? :o

 I have heard that Anne and Thomas were close friends, they wrote many letters to each other and kept a strong acquaintance. And, of course, Beksinski was also a big fan of L :)

Yep but they never met in person. At least that's what the editor of ALTERGOTHIC Portal said to me. She described to me in detail her meeting with the band in 2009 before the concert in Cracow when they were in "Popular" club and she went there and met them by a total coincidence. Polish people were asking them about Tomasz and tried to teach them the proper pronunciation of his surname. Then they were talking about him and both Tilo and Anne confessed that although they have never met him in person he is a huge part of their lives. But a pen-friend also counts as a friend ;)

yes, very often security guards ruin it all, they almost managed to ruin it in Zürich as well, back then in 2010 on the Eine Nacht in Bergwerk festival  ::)  they just don't care, they don't care about the band's wishes and opinions, they just do it, because they can, because they are security guards, and if you oppose, you'll leave the building and that's it ... and yes indeed, there are too many people, i know that. Kitty, Karin, my sis and me waited for more than an hour yesterday night to have a chance to talk to them, and it was worth waiting  :)  honestly, i understand their decision about not showing up after the concerts. 3 hours on stage must be really exhausting, and seeing the dates, 3 or 4 days in a row + actually living in the bus which is on the road all the time ... yes, they need their time as well to rest, i really understand them and i don't blame them  :)

Btw. I already asked Rajel on facebook but she didn't reply yet. What is with this Lacrigirls thing? I have no clue, never heard of it before... is it some kind of closed group that knows the band personally? I don't suspect them to be groupies, Lacrimosa is not that kind of band :P Tina is very lovely, talked with everyone who wanted to get to know her, gave us Haribo jellies and water she somehow managed to smuggle because it wasn't possible to bring your own drinks (even if it was plain water), I had to throw out mine and was so thirsty... And thanks for the compliment :) Btw. Tina's outfit is awesome, don't you think? She also had leg-warmers with the same pattern <3

We do not have meetings as a regular action. I meant we could meet all together because of your visit to us in Kaliningrad, Russia. Our city is in the west of the country and Warsaw is not so far as the sun J I met Russian fans from Sant-Petersburg at this gig (a girl in almost completely white clothes, for example)



"I remember that moment so well. I think I saw your friend to whom Tilo was singing. That's a great story to tell your future kids" 

Today in the evening we exchanged all media staff from that gig with Julia, we both can not believe till the end what happened last Sunday and whom we saw on stage and what music we heard alive ::)   I will tell this story and keep memories even for my grandchildren  8)


"Was that song called Jem - It's Amazing?  I think I heard it in a car that day, too when my friend was giving me a lift to the train station after the show  I know how you felt, I had exactly the same mix of emotions in my heart after the show and I still can go back to normal, I'm still living with those memories ^^ As we all are"
 
Yes, absolutely right – it was Jem - It's Amazing!!!!  We both heard this song on our road, pleased to realize that  :).
I will send you a piece of happiness of two files mentioned above. Check your email for download instructions and then enjoy, let it be my last present to you, dear Lacrima mosanium!!! Don’t judge strictly the videos, my hands were tired of shooting for almost two hours and holding the camera over the heads and hands of fans.

P.S.  Evangelina Krammen and me on the foto

Ha, that's a surprise indeed :D I didn't even know someone was taking photos of us three xD And yeah, I saw both of you there as you were standing very close to my good friend (the one in violet blouse and a vest). We were so close... such a pity...

Maria once more about the "pictures-haunt" ... I'm not meaning this in a  hard way...just trying to help you get over it ;) ...  but in a way what does a picture mean? It's not really that what matters nor the signature is it? You stood in front of him and looked him in the eyes? I hope you did despite your eagerness to get a picture and disappointment for not getting it! ... I have two pics of which one totally blurred but I actually never really thought about it myself, it was always thanks to the people around that there came out pictures and the reason is that I find it much more important to live that actual moment to full extent than having lost half of it because I focused too much on getting a picture to be able to recall it later... I know by now that memories that go this deep remain for the rest of your life. See pictures are cool to have but I think it shouldn't be the only aim in such meetings, but that's of course my opinion ;) As for them not getting out after the show... I think in first place they need time to let it sink; such a show is already a big impact on a fan I can't possibly imagine what it does to them, it's very intense and asks a lot of energy and emotional strength for sure  ... so on that matter pitty from the train perhaps so you couldn't wait longer, but as is known sometimes he/they just don't feel like it either ... I think one should respect their wishes on that matter indeed. I can't really talk along there as I'm usually the hider ... if it weren't for Klodi I probably wouldn't have seen them yesterday or I would but from afar xD just don't be mad with them they really don't do this on purpose, they have so many fans you know, try to see it from their position as well. They're very very kind with their fans and the last thing they want is to hurt any of them ... if they do than really because there is no other option on time-matters or personal matters.

And now I have to explain everything, to Kitty and Klavdija especially. I really like you girls and I don't want you to change your opinion about me or think something that is not true. I may have sounded in my posts as some kind of mad photo-hunter. But compare my first post after the show in Warsaw to those after I came back from Cracow. I didn't even mention a word "photo" there. I didn't even think about such a thing during their performance. I was too bewitched with all that was happening. Just the feelings that were filling me after this 3-hours long, magical and beautiful concert. Many things happened on Monday that eventually made me really pissed off.

1. I overslept after coming back from Warsaw and woke up only thanks to the postman who was knocking at my door. In a great hurry I managed to pack my things and made it to the train station somehow on time.
2. My brother and his girlfriend picked me up from the station. They were supposed to prepare some dinner earlier so that we could quickly eat and go to the club but they slept 'till noon and they didn't. I got into first quarrel with my brother that day - because nothing was prepared, they started making some food when we arrived to his apartment which took over and hour. And even worse he had to straighten his hair and spent another hour in the bathroom preparing himself for the show. We were at the club at 6 P.M. after very hectic travelling by bus - he assured me he knows how to get there and that he checked everything - of course he didn't and three times we had to take a different bus because it was not the one.
3. I was really surprised by people's behaviour in Cracow. Only a few people were jumping and generally having fun. The atmosphere of every concert is 50% people 50% band and in Warsaw it was completely different. Then that incident with not getting to my place after the break made me even more angry.
4. When the gig finished there came another quarrel with my brother about me wanting to wait for the band. He wanted to take a taxi asap after I got the setlist and I was totally dependent on him because taking a taxi is quite expensive but divided into three of us was bearable. If I stayed and he went I would have to pay for my own taxi and I couldn't afford it.
5. The next day I was trying to make my brother and his girlfriend to finally wake up and after 1,5h of my constant reminding that we're going to be late they finally woke up but they had very little time to prepare themselves for going out so that I could come back home. Once again I almost missed a train.

I'm not usually easily getting mad but this was just too much. I didn't want to offend anyone, I'm not mad at the band, I never said that. I totally understand that they might have been tired after the 1st part and didn't come out. This club was very small and many people had to go out during the gig to have some air otherwise they would faint. I believe the musicians were sweating almost the same as we did. I also consider myself very lucky to be a part of both of their shows in my country, especially the one opening the tour. I was exhausted and hoped that my effort would be rewarded at least with such a reminder. Trying to get to the band twice in such a short time and failing... I felt incomplete, I wanted to thank Tilo for what he does, for this show, assure him of our love for Lacrimosa's music and I couldn't.

We sometimes write things when emotions are overflowing and everything is fresh. Maybe I wanted to complain, maybe I wanted to share my misery with someone... it just came out the way it did. I'm really sorry if any of you thought that I'm pissed at the band, they are the last people I could get angry at, believe me... from now on no complaining about that day. I have to keep only the memory of the things that were good - for my own sake.

Fannie, it's not that I'm thinking they will. It's just one of my biggest fears... everyone has some :-[
I understand you, it's also a big fear for me  :-\ since I saw these comments wich said that maybe this is the last Lacrimosa album :-X but I still trying to not believe this and I don't trust in the source of this information, although it really freaked me out... I don't know if you remember some post that I did some months ago saying that I was a little bit paranoic because of something that I don't want to happen and I was so sad it was because of this comment, that's why I was wondering if you had seen or heard anything suspicious....

I remember Tilo saying he likes to play according of the people's excitement during a show. In 2007 in Puebla some idiots were yelling "Copycat-copycat" while he was playing Eine Nacht (fuckers) so he played Copycat and skipped Das Schweigen, even when it was on the setlist. Maybe he noticed something like that :S

It's my favourite too!!   but maybe Verloren isn't in the setlist because it's lost!! xD

Hahahaaaa, very logic thought, I think we shloud ask Tilo if that's how it is!


Quote
Btw. I already asked Rajel on facebook but she didn't reply yet. What is with this Lacrigirls thing? I have no clue, never heard of it before... is it some kind of closed group that knows the band personally? I don't suspect them to be groupies, Lacrimosa is not that kind of band  Tina is very lovely, talked with everyone who wanted to get to know her, gave us Haribo jellies and water she somehow managed to smuggle because it wasn't possible to bring your own drinks (even if it was plain water), I had to throw out mine and was so thirsty... And thanks for the compliment  Btw. Tina's outfit is awesome, don't you think? She also had leg-warmers with the same pattern <3

Sooooorry I didn't answer, Maria! But since my yesterday's last post in facebook (one in spanish) I didn't log in until right now.
From what I know, two years ago there were these girls on stage, they all had harlequin pattern's clothing. Some of them had the Lacrimosa flags, etc... There were even some pictures of them in the old blog-mobile. And that's all I know.

About pictures: I understand your feeling, it's frustration. It's not 'the photo'. It was a chain of unlucky events: being tired, being the one that got the 'I have to go' answer, attending to gigs and having the little autograph session canceled in the second...
During the Sehnsucht tour something like that happened in Argentina. We were told that all we could do was ask for autogrpah and a veeeeeery little talk. No kisses, no pics, no hugs, no nothing. Well, I was one of the first: I told them all 'hello, thanks, etc', I had my autographs and left. The following day I was told that, 20 minutes after that Tilo left (for only a few minutes), but the people weren't allowed to wait for him. So there were many who couldn't even say hello to him... Nobody knows what happened, but it's almost always some problem with bodyguards, as someone said a few comments ago.
Instead of letting people wait until he returned, they force the line to continue going on. Sometimes it's just bad luck.

Let's keep our fingers crossed, next time you'll have more time with him!

As for Kitty's comment on the Viena concert: I loved it! It seems you had a wonderfull night yesterday! And I quote Steff: It's almost like being there!!!

Thanks for sharing it with us!

Last night I suddenly thought 'aaaah, Viena's concert must have ended by now, I wonder how it was!'. It seems it was wonderful and unforgetable, as Lacriconcerts always are.

Hah interesting. There is not a concert here in which the crowd won't start yelling for copycat. I'm not gonna say I don't sing along when they play it, and that I don't scream like crazy and have an amazing time. But I always get a little mad, and think - cmon! There are better songs!
Das Schweigen? A privilege to be heard live. Never had the change. But I did hear Copycat thrice already. ::)
Well, nonsense complaints..

Kitty - I was really happy to read your review. We know what a big fan you are (like almost everyone here  ::) ) and thus I know how strong your emotions were, which it can also be seen from this narration. So I'm very happy for you!! a bit, bit jealous too - but happy mostly!  ;D

Yeah I don't think it's something really 'organized' as an official gruopies group. But hell, if there were any, I'm certain I'd give up everything I have here to become one and do some live fast die young with the people I admire the most on Earth. ;)


Last night I suddenly thought 'aaaah, Viena's concert must have ended by now, I wonder how it was!'. It seems it was wonderful and unforgetable, as Lacriconcerts always are.
You know what - I'm also having this thoughts - almost everyday - of what they're doing right now.. Where they're playing at.. Oh, what are they feeling.. What are they experiencing on stage.. What are all those fans feeling.. Which song are they all singing right now.. Is the show over? What's going on backstage?.. I fear this is becoming a most uncomfortable rumor in my head, and it's only the beginning of a long tour :(
Sometimes I just wish I didn't know anything about it.. just let the band play and the fans watch.. I'll have to wait all the same..
Sorry for the kind of egoist - sad comment :( I'm actually happy for the ones attending the concerts..

Maria, you don't have to explain me anything and the least I want is you to feel like you have no right to be angry or anything...you have, just like anyone else has for whatever reasons they have. It's a feeling just like love, sadness and joy is and as I already said before I do understand you to some extent. All I tried was to help you pass that state so the good memories wouldn't suffer your anger in the end. In this forum there's always a listening ear for complaints and sorrow keep in mind ;) don't feel attacked by my remarks, I have no such aim! *hugs*

Thanks for understanding girls. Kitty, I know you wanted to help me overcome those negative feelings, you wrote that before and I'm extremely grateful for your concern *hugs back* PS. Any more stories about the gig in Vienna? ;)

Rajel - I had such a situation after Patrick Wolf's concert (yeah, I listen to a lot of different kinds of music :P) that we were waiting outside the club because they threw us out and said they're closing. So about 50 people decided to wait near the gate where the band's buses and cars always leave so that maybe he would go out or at least that we could see him leaving in a car and say goodbye, wave our hands, etc. You know what the security guys did? The called the police saying that there's an illegal gathering! Can you imagine that? :o The police came and we all had to go, very, very stupid situation. As if we were some kind of criminals :-X

I'm more concerned about how long Tilo and Anne will be able to perform on stage, have energy for that, it's tough and tiring to travel for so long, sleep little and be always smiling, fresh and still have a great voice.

Kitty, i totally understand what you said about Tilo's words touching you so much during the concert! Great that he was talking a lot :D I'm afraid i'll be begging you and Nicolas to translate what Tilo says in next concert, i so hated to be missing that part last time!!! I do consider it such an interesting part of the show!! Hope you won't mind? I'll be forever grateful :)

uh yes, I adored the fact he was talking so much ... more voice = more happy kitty :) And yes, of course I wanna translate, but I'm afraid it won't work during the show as I realised with Klodi.. I wanted to but I can't focus on what he says and translate at the same time and to first listen and then translate there's no time seeing they start playing right after and you won't understand a word I'm saying beside it wouldn't be nice for them neither I think when they're performing that there's people talking. But I'll tell you then after the concert what's been said :) that's no prob you see I recall his words rather word-word wise.

I very hope that we will see Lacrimosa here in Russia the following spring or summer. And set-list will be the same - it's grand. I saw the video "Feuerzug" where Tilo played "Interlude" on a piano and now dream to see it with my own eyes. Incredible tour, really  :D

Which means, dear Lacrifellows, that when you're attending concerts you have some other crazy fans 'with you'! At least our souls are there, following each song and word...

Rajel - I had such a situation after Patrick Wolf's concert (yeah, I listen to a lot of different kinds of music :P) that we were waiting outside the club because they threw us out and said they're closing. So about 50 people decided to wait near the gate where the band's buses and cars always leave so that maybe he would go out or at least that we could see him leaving in a car and say goodbye, wave our hands, etc. You know what the security guys did?

Everything's possible in Poland... but it never happened to me before or after and I hope it never will again. Thankfully it wasn't the club in which Lacrimosa played the 1st gig of this tour. It was in "Stodoła" which is the biggest club in Warsaw - the only bigger objects for gigs in that town are stadiums. I was really surprised if not to say shocked how they treated us :-\

As for the concerts - you're sending us good vibes and I will do the same for all fans who are yet to attend this tour's gigs :)

All I know about Poland, besides a little history (littlelittle), is that I can hardly pronounce the names of its cities... too many consonants, hahahahaaa! At least for my 'hispanic-speaker' ears.

Here that would happen. Not because our police is 'good' (it's not, mostly), but because nobody would think of calling them for that. If people are just there, you can't call the police. Unless they began to do something, then, the massacre begins...

For the other part of your comment, let's do that! Let's keep sending the good vibes!

Now when you mention our city names I remembered a funny situation that happened before the concert in Warsaw. One Polish guy was talking with Tina and she was saying how Polish language is hard for her and asked him to say his name so she could learn at least that. And he said: Grzegorz Brzęczyszczykiewicz xD This is a fictional name of one character in an old Polish movie which everyone knows here. It's about II WW and this guy wanted to confuse Germans by making up the hardest name he could possibly think of. They didn't know how to write it or say it so they let him go :D

"Sending the vibes right now". I wonder if the band is still in Czech Republic... it's so close to Poland ::)

I saw them somewhere on twitter, they began when Tilo posted the phrase: "There's not Revolution without a sacrifice" but I think that they misinterpreted it because I'm agree with you in the meaning of Revolution as a new era and not as an ending  ;)

Maybe the "sacrifice" he meant was the fact that they're playing such long shows on this tour and not in every city it is possible for them to meet with fans after such long performances... Having twitter has some advantages, I would have known about such things earlier :P

I saw them somewhere on twitter, they began when Tilo posted the phrase: "There's not Revolution without a sacrifice" but I think that they misinterpreted it because I'm agree with you in the meaning of Revolution as a new era and not as an ending  ;)

When I hear those words 'there's no revolution without a sacrifice', I think of an inner sacrifice: Revolution implies changes, changes mean (in my opinion) leaving behind old things (things you do, behaviur, routines, the list is big and contains whaever you want to change with a revolution). That would be the sacrifice, I think...

Hanajash: I think the word Sacrifice could have many meanings! but I'm sure that he was referring to this kind of changes that you mentioned  ;)

Nice pics.


I am very anxious ... I saw the video of feuerzeug where Tilo plays the piano, I was excited and longing much this picture in Mexico is also well.
Here we are very eager to announce the dates for LATAM, however unofficial sources have revealed that it is most likely to spring-summer 2013. That is a long time and I worry that get very exhausted. I want to enjoy a concert soul in two acts like you in Europe.

At the German concerts in the break between the two sets, there's a sort of "poetry slam" happening. Young artists from Germany can come on stage and present their art. Maybe that's the surprise Tilo was speaking of and the reason why there wasn't something like that in Poland. Dunno.... anyway this Tour is awesome.  ;D

Wow, that's a great idea ;) No, the surprise in Poland that happened only in Warsaw but not in Cracow was that Tilo came out during the break - and he said that's the surprise so... :>

Hi Folks !

Lacrimosa remains one of the last band that I really love, I've never seen live.
So, as they don't use to tour in France or in southern european countries, I plan to go to Pratteln next week end, above all the setlist I've seen on internet for Warsaw is almost perfect for me (it would have been with "Siehst Du mich im Licht?" and "Deine Nähe" !).
Well, my question is: in Pratteln, I've seen that a guest is on the bill... I'm afraid the show will be shorter than 27 tracks... And not to have some old tracks would be a big disappointment... I have a long road to go there (1400 km to go and back), and I would like to be sure I have the same setlist than in Warsaw.

Someone can help me please ?

Thanks a lot.

hey there  :)

first, welcome on our forum  :)  second - the playlist was the same in Vienna as well, i don't know about the rest of the setlists around the Europe, but usually it's more or less the same everywhere, just few songs differ  :)  i don't see any reason why would Lacrimosa play less songs in Switzerland, but even if they do, i can assure you it's worth travelling this far in any case  :)  enjoy your trip and the show  :)

Amazing concert in Dresden. We got 3 (!!!) encores, over 3 and a half hours show ending with "Halt mich!". It started a bit hard, Dresden audience probably is a bit more "posh" than Leipzig audience for example, so they needed a bit time to get into the concert. But when "Schakal" started almost complete hall was pretty much into it. I took some full-length videos of some of the new tracks. "Rote Sinfonie" is almost half shorter in its Live-Version than on the album, but still sounds absolutely amazing! Hope you enjoy it... picture is not the best, but the sound is pretty good. :)

Hi there :)

I think this special guest in on all tickets in Germany, in any case that's the case with my tick for Cologne... my guess is that it has to do with the "special" they were talking about ... but in any case I wouldn't let you keep it from going ;) Even if they don't play 27 songs, Lacrimosa is a must to see once a while to keep the senses open :) As for having the same setlist... don't burn your thoughts on it, it's known that Tilo dares to switch around with songs as the tour progresses as to his own state of mind and wishes at that moment...but that'll only mean that they will play with all their heart and soul :) and I've never experienced that he played a complete different set, most of the time couple of songs change position/drop for others to enter. Hope this could ease your fear a bit :) you won't regret going ;)


Danilo Thank you very very much! woooo 3 encores crazyyyy :)

Thank you, dear fans ;)
I know I can't be disappointed with them. If there's a guest I'm afraid Lacrimosa plays one hour less, for example.
The fact is too, that I've a little bit switched off the band's discography after the disappointment of "Fassade". But Lacrimosa has always been in my heart during all the 2000s, thanks to all the support during the bad moments in my past life, all the happiness and the passion I can feel when I listen to "Elodia", "Stille" or "Inferno"... All these deep feelings in the 90s.
So, I begin again to take an interest in last albums, and I can discover many masterpieces, in the pure Lacrimosa tradition.

Well you have relieved me, and now I can prepare my trip from Marseille, as soon as I have my ticket.

Cheers !

Me too... I kept telling the people beside me to wake me up, because I was in the front row and I thought it'd horrible for the support bands to see that there were people sleeping during their performances... So I slept in the minutes between the bands. But I think I slept during the 3rd and 4th band's performances...

It's so tempting to do this when the performing band isn't pleasant to one's taste. I have almost fell asleep before or just stand there like-> ._.

I don't really recall what they played, but as far as I remember it was a mixture of everything ... all I know is that during the break there was this huge clock-sound like I remember from when I was at my grandfathers and uncles place (who had their home stewed with big clocks) and I thought "aaaaaaah, make that stop! no timing around here!" hahaha

Well... usually I don't pay much attention to what is played in background before a concert. But in Dresden I realized because I thought the selection was awesome. Besides Muse there was also Anathema, Sigur Rós and just before the end of the break Faith No More. And I know that venue and the people running it and they would never play something like that on their own.  ;D

I am afraid I gonna hide in the farest and darkest corner of the concert hall- just afraid of being nearly killed by all those emotional impact that is obviously occupying body and soul during those very intensive Lacrimosa- concerts... ;D  ??? ;)

A question: can we say a word like "fuck" here ?
If yes, I can say What a FUCKIN' CONCERT yesterday at Z7 ! Incredible how many different feelings crossed my body, heart and mind... At last I've seen them, and it was as fantastic than in my dreams.
Of course I'll write a review, like for all my concerts, but in french. I'll try to translate it, promise.

Danke für die Nachfrage, mir geht es wirklich gut und nach gestern Nacht noch besser! Lacrimosa macht irgendwie süchtig und so muss ich nach Ludwigsburg auch zu dem Konzert gehen. :D Wie geht es dir? Warst du auch schon auf einem der Konzerte?
Ja... das in der ersten Reihe bin ich! Und nur um eins klar zu stellen, ich habe nicht immer mitgesungen, nur der Photographer hat wohl immer genau die Momente getroffen!  ;D

Here is my review.
Thousand thanks to Melissa for the perfect english translation !  :-*

Lacrimosa 07-10-12 Pratteln.


"Lacrimosa.
Finally.
Since 1998 that I’ve been waiting for this.

Seeing the best gothic-symphonic Metal band, nothing less. I’m talking about real gothic Metal, not about Metal bands with a few gothic aspects here and there, like Tristania and co… And still, this remains a very simplistic denomination for such a genius of composition as Tilo Wolff… Many music pieces could easily be found in a classical music catalogue (« Sanctus », « Kyrie », « Rote Sinfonie »,…) , while still proposing some blazing titles sounding much more Metal when played live than some bands which are labelled as pure Metal.

To this record must be added the omnipresence of Emotion with a capital E, the one which literally transports you and give you fucking incredible shivers, and you will now understand why I have been dying to see them on stage for such a long time.

However, when the tour was announced, with its “miserable” 15 dates enclosed in the usual triangle of Germany-Eastern Europe-Switzerland, I thought that once again I was done for, that I was going to curse aloud for a month for nothing, waiting for hypothetical other dates to come. Same story than for the last 10 years all over again…

I had even scheduled going to see Therion on that rainy Sunday. And then I saw the setlist of the first concert in Poland. Visual orgasm! A fucking awesome setlist which already made my heart jump with happiness. It’s very simple, it was almost perfect for me. If there had been « Deine Nähe », « Seele in Not » and « Siehst du mich im licht » it would have been heaven, but we’re not gonna pick over that, having at least 25 songs, so about 2 hours and a half of show, it was the dream that I had been playing with for so long.

So in such cases I stop thinking, I follow my instinct, and it was yelling me that I HAD to rush for it, so as to live something that really meant a lot to me. Because Lacrimosa, it is, for those who know me, in the same category as Savatage. A band which has supported me in dark periods, provided me with the best musical experiences ever possible, and which continues to make me melancholically happy, year after year. Unique.

So, after about 700 km of travel, I found myself in Pratteln, in that venue of Z7, where I’ve already been once, to see Jon Oliva’s Pain (coincidences, when they start) and which I find awesome as a concert hall. Sadly, the crowd remained very thin. I would say about 300 pilgrims at most. It doesn’t do justice to the band’s talent, and I was afraid at first that the atmosphere would be icily cold, in spite of the advantage of having an ideal central position, a few cms away from the stage without being bumped into.

How wrong to think so! Because just like me, people around me shivered when the lights got turned off and the « Lacrimosa theme » resounded, just like in the mythical « Live » of the Stille tour. And just like then, it was the fabulous « Ich bin der brennende Komet » that followed. With a totally ex-ce-llent sound, which remained the case during the whole concert.

And there, guys, I knew why I had been right to follow my instinct. To have a happy Tilo Wolff right in front of me and on his left Anne Nurmi with her glances of iced embers, interpreting one of my favourite titles, I was immediately submerged by intense emotion. It took hold of me, and didn’t let me go away till the end of the live. Just this « Ich bin der brennende Komet » justified my travel, so you can imagine the rest…

When the majestic « Schakal » sounded for the third title, I became mad, I started yelling the lyrics and making my hair fly everywhere, in what will remain one of the great moments of my live career…  After that it becomes difficult for me to describe with words the perfect happiness that I felt, the explosion of sad and happy feelings mixed together, reflecting all the human duality. The beauty in the melancholy sadness, the dark feelings in the hope always present. The lyrics are essential in Lacrimosa and even if you don’t speak German you can feel what Tilo wants to transmit.

The band alternated with intelligence between old pieces and newer songs, among which seven of the last magnificent Revolution. Some of them are fit for stage, like « Feuerzug » and its insisting piano, the eponymous song and its industrial-metal intro, the long and persistent « Rote sinfonie », the desperate « Refugium », or also « If the world stood still a day »,  with a stunning singing from Anne Nurmi. The audience reacted vigorously each time, you could feel the faithful people, you felt at home with ultimate fans, it was extremely nice. People exulted on hits like « Lichtgestalt », « Alles Lüge », « Der Morgen danach » or « Feuer ».

But what an atmosphere on a mythical « Stolzes Herz » which closed the first part of the show! A pure piece of music which starts so softly at first, and then finishes in a cataclysm after an irrepressible crescendo!

And a good example of the Metal side of the combo! The guitars are sharp, a real wall of decibels, supported by a roaring bass, dry drums and a keyboard never drowned under the rest, but bringing such a particular touch. It makes me mad to hear the metal heads who criticize Lacrimosa by reducing them to a simple gothic band. Hell, but listen to the live versions of « Feuer », « Revolution », « Ich bin der brennende Komet », « Feuerzug », and « Malina » and we’ll compare with heavy bands who can definitely not rock as well!

Not to mention that the duo is accompanied by a real band, not just people who would be there to get Tilo and Anne look and sound good. The guitarists are really good, both are solists, getting us first-rate solo parts (« Stolzes Herz »’s final, « Feuerzug »’s, or interventions in « Komet », « Rote Sinfonie », or « Feuer »!) and the rhythm section supports wonderfully the structure, with no wrong notes. It’s just a pity that there isn’t a violin player for the many parts dealing with this instrument, it would have gained in intensity, I think.

Beside that, I received terrible emotional slaps in the face with the calm « Ich verlasse heut’ dein Herz », followed by « Am ende stehen wir zwei », or « Tränen der Sehnsucht », that I never would have believed to hear live one day… Not to mention « Alleine zu zweit », « Not every pain hurts », or « Weil du Hilfe brauchst »…

Honestly, seeing the songs that they had been playing on previous dates, I would have really liked to have « Halt mich » instead of « A prayer for your heart » and « Ein Hauch von Menschlichkeit » in the stead of « Apart », it would have been perfect. I was surprised though of the absence of « Durch Nacht und Flut », that I thought was a hit impossible to not to play.

Well, I don’t complain, in the contrary. Tilo’s charisma is incredible. He is immersed deeply in his music, he lives it, he shares it. Anne is more discreet, I would have thought her to be put more forward. Except that when she takes hold of the microphone you become entirely focused on her voice, her dancing, her glances.

A magnetic experience.

 
When I reopened my eyes at the end of the concert, I had one single thought in mind: to return to another concert, like an irrepressible need. Impossible of course, but from now on, in order not to regret missing them like all these past years, I have promised myself to go to at least one date each tour, travelling a few thousands kms if needed. They totally deserve it. Because there are few combos who have thrilled me as much as they have.

 
Thank you, Lacrimosa.

@ Tänzerin: Danke mir geht es auch gut. Ja ich war auch auf einem Lacrimosa Konzert in Leipzig. Es war einfach atemberaubend und voller Emotionen. Du hast recht Lacrimosa machen echt süchtig.  :) Ich kann aber leider nur ein Konzert besuchen weil es Finanziell bei mir nicht anders ging.  Da hat dich der Fotograf immer nur beim mitsingen erwischt. Klingt echt lustig.  :) Ich wünsche dir schon viel Spaß beim Konzert in Ludwigsburg, genieß es einfach.

Some days ago I was so excited, because Lacrimosa was in Karlsruhe for a concert. The day before, Kitty arrived and I was so happy that I could share the beautiful moments with such a wonderful person! When I woke up at Tuesday I couldn’t believe it’s THE day. But first I had to wait and had to go to classes… sometimes classes really sucks. :P Well, in the late afternoon I went home and Kitty and me got ready for the concert. We wait and wait for open doors… inside then, we searched for a coatrack and for some drinks. We also met some really nice girls of the forum here… ;)
So, the first sounds of the theme started suddenly. I think I was stopping breathing… and really happy to see Anne, Henrik, Manne, J.P. and Yenz. Like always Tilo was pretty late… ;D But great to see them finally, after such a long time! I really can’t remember which songs on which order they played, but it was a great playlist… a long playlist with more classis songs like Stolzes Herz, Allein zu Zweit, Lichtgestalt, Malina, Komet, not every pain hurts, der Morgen danach, Alles Lüge, but also (new) songs like Refugium, Feuerzug, am Ende stehen wir zwei, Feuer, Irgendein Arsch ist immer unterwegs, ohne Dich ist Alles Nichts, Revolution, Weil du Hilfe brauchst, if the world stood still a day. Every song was amazing! I can say that the second part, after the break (where Tilo took some photos with fans), was really hard; it was like someone shoot in my soul all the time, but in a positive way. Well, Tilo was also talking between the songs pretty often. He was talking about a beautiful story from a wedding what meant that everyone is responsible and everyone can change something! Now I know where he got the story and it’s great that he shares such a thing with us! He was also talking about close persons, that you should be careful about those close persons, especially when they need help (when I understood that correctly). I think he could do that more often! ^^ One of the greatest moments was definitely, when Tilo was playing the piano! Gosh, how many emotions! I’m so, SO grateful that he shares those emotions, all the emotions from the whole concert!! And when I was listening someone saying “there is no better concert than that of Lacrimosa”, I absolutely agree! ;) And I had seen a lot. ;) I really can’t wait for the next time seeing those beautiful souls!

Excuse me, I'm not the person you asked, but as I think that Jenny has all her thoughts at the Lacri-Concert in Köln today ;), so I can tell you the story, too, because I also have been at the concert in Karlsruhe:


The story, Tilo told us:

Imagine, there's a wedding. In advance the bridal couple tells every invited guest, that they don't shall bring any expensive gifts to the wedding, but each of them should bring a bottle of wine.
At the wedding day, everyone brings his bottle and they pour the contents of the bottles into one big pipe. Then the wine should be served, but... when the waiter pours the content from the pipe into the first glass, there's no wine, but water in the pipe!
-> What happened?: every guest was egoistic and thought, that one small bottle of water would not be notices between the mass of wine. And so he wanted to live at the expense of the other guests.
-> What the story will tell us: When everybody thinks in the same egoistic way and wants to live at the expense of others, the system cannot work! But when everybody helps a little bit, together we can live in a good way of life!


...something like that, Tilo told us. Sorry, I cannot remember the exact conclusion  :-[...

-> What the story will tell us: When everybody thinks in the same egoistic way and wants to live at the expense of others, the system cannot work! But when everybody helps a little bit, together we can live in a good way of life!


...something like that, Tilo told us. Sorry, I cannot remember the exact conclusion  :-[...


Ohhh sounds very nice ! Makes me think a lot =)

well this is how he told it in Vienna, i believe Kitty won't mind me putting her translation to me here  :)

"Some people can feel sometimes like they don't matter. They think that when they'd drop dead tomorrow nobody would care or even notice, all would be the same. But this story will show you something different. A young pair is getting married but they're very poor and unable to pay for wine for so many people. So they ask everyone who's coming to bring some to pour it in a big box so that there's wine for everyone in the end. But none brought wine, they all brought water so that in the end they had to drink water as everyone thought "nobody will notice when I bring water instead of wine" ... so it should be clear, that every single one counts, every single one" [he told it before "Weil du Hilfe brauchst"]

Excuse me, I'm not the person you asked, but as I think that Jenny has all her thoughts at the Lacri-Concert in Köln today ;), so I can tell you the story, too, because I also have been at the concert in Karlsruhe:


The story, Tilo told us:

Imagine, there's a wedding. In advance the bridal couple tells every invited guest, that they don't shall bring any expensive gifts to the wedding, but each of them should bring a bottle of wine.
At the wedding day, everyone brings his bottle and they pour the contents of the bottles into one big pipe. Then the wine should be served, but... when the waiter pours the content from the pipe into the first glass, there's no wine, but water in the pipe!
-> What happened?: every guest was egoistic and thought, that one small bottle of water would not be notices between the mass of wine. And so he wanted to live at the expense of the other guests.

Wow! Tilo is so wise and yes, this story makes you think a lot D=  thank you for sharing it  Tänzerin der Dunkelheit, I don't know you name  :P I can't wait to see them on the stage and listen to his beautiful stories  ::)

oh! I know that story! ;D it is on my book of Civics and Ethics, related in a different way but is the same idea.
And now I think understand better the meaning of Weil du Hilfe brauchst... people are so egoist and knows that everyone else are as well, so they could think that nobody will notice something that one person do or feel or whatever and this either will affect nothing in the world like they were alone in the universe apart for everyone else,and this make grow the suffering within of many people who are waiting for someone or something that could help them but all other people in the same situation are waiting the same. So they don't realize that we all need help from all to progress and get out of this cycle of selfishness

As NuWoLa asked me to write about yesterday's concert in Ludwigsburg, I'll try to sum it up a little bit, but because it was an emotional very hard concert, I don't know, what will come out in the end...  ;)



It was a very touching, deep emotional concert. The audience was more open than in Karlsruhe (where I have been, too).
It was also harder to reach a place in the first row, but Jenny and I got one directly in front of the microphone!  ;)
When the Lacrimosa-Theme started, the audience became more quiet and I got goosebumps. How long have I waited to hear it again!
When the musicians and Anne entered the stage, the audience began to cheer (but I couldn't, I was too much hooked by the theme). The concert began like the other concerts, but there was more tension between the ones onstage and the audience than I had experienced it in Karlsruhe.
They played the same songs as on the other concerts. The audience celebrated the songs (e.g. Mandira Nabula). Schakal was very grand, Feuerzug sounded chased as it is on the album. During the end of Lichtgestalt I got the strong wish to dance around in a circle, but especialle because we were in the first row, there was no space to do it! :(
Annes song (If the world stood still) was very touching, I like this song a lot! Especially her dance and way of singing makes her to a shining queen, which is too often forgotten, when she stands behind her keyboard!
Alles Lüge is a song, in which I can find myself in some way, and this song seemed for me very honest and convincing.
Tränen der Sehnsucht was very sad, but for my taste the end, where Tilo left the stage (maybe to give the musicians the chance to show their improvisations), was too long and lead away from the song in its proper sense.

In this way also the other songs from the first part followed, it is hard for me to remember each and every song for itself.

During the break Tilo was at the merchandising booth, where you could take photos with him or get autographs.

The second part began with the beautiful Refugium, but in Ludwigsburg there were some elements which I didn't liked: to keep the stroke, Tilo used his foot, which made a continuous noise. Furthermore his voice was not as touching at the concert in Ludwigsburg, but this could happen to anyone! :) (Jenny and Darkwavetyp didn't noticed these things, so it was a matter of opinion)
In general the second part included more emotional songs. There was a point, where I was really hurt and other parts, which helped me to stand up again.
Revolution was the climax and the audience was great! Although Lacrimosa didn't used the "special effects" which they used in Karlsruhe (falling background -> change of the stage set, Tilo waving a Lacrimosa-flag).

They played two songs as encore: Der Morgen danach made me feel sick, because I wished so hard, that the concert would not end and that there would never be "a day afterwards"!  :'(
But Feuer was the opposite: an ode to Lacrimosa, the audience was great!

After the encore we didn't finish to call again for one encore and so they played Copycat as the very final song...  ;D


That was it (at least for me): the Lacrimosa tour!
I am grateful to Tilo and Anne, to the others who made the concerts unforgettable and to god, who gives me the chance to experience things like this!



So, guys, this was the evening as I experienced it. Maybe other people experienced it in a very different way. I felt lame while writing this, because I didn't know what to write, what to leave untouched and especially there are memories, which should only live in my heart but not in the internet...
So I hope, my report was what you expected from it. :)

@ Tänzerin der Dunkelheit

Thanks for the report. It is a good review of yesterday's concert. Due to the fact that we are individuals we all experience such an event differently of course. ;) So as far as i am concerned, i enjoyed the concert this time much more and the music was soothing to me.  :)


By the way, on youtube you can find some videos from the concert in Karlsruhe meanwhile. So if some of the visitors of that concert want to take a trip back, just follow this link.  ;)

Earth, wind, rain, WIND and rain!

 Well, I arrived to the venue at 4pm-ish and didn't see anyone. O.o I thought I was going crazy. Then moments later I noticed a LW member that was part of our "many nations, one revolution: love above all" project. Slowly, everyone was arriving and even saw some faces that were unexpected! We had some nice moments before the show and were even able to meet Tilo and Anne (As you shall see by windy photos on my fb) XD. Before the doors opened, it started to pour rain but some LW members saved us with umbrellas. I left mine at my hotel.  ::) Anyway, we all got to the front row of the venue and it didn't take too long before the band came on. The curtain in background dropped and we all saw the harlequin holding the flag! The intro music kicked in and the band slowly came on stage. The first song was "ich bin brennende komet" which surprised me as I thought "revolution" would have been the first. I knew what the following song order would be because I saw the setlist hidden behind Anne's keyboards (hihi hehe). I want to make a point that Tilo is not only an amazing composer but he is AMAZING at PIANO and guitar. During feuerzug, he was just totally slamming that piano with soul. He had to shake his wrists out because as you all know, some of the parts in there are super fast! :D It was so nice to see him play and also go on guitar when Anne sang. He was on guitar for a few of the songs and then he switched to the keyboards. At the end of the show, the crowd was so enthusiastic so they played "copycat" for us. I think the most memorable performance was when we all sang along to "der morgen danach." Prior to that, during the 2nd of half show, a few members and I put together a surprise for the band. We were able to hold up the posters (words above) and I was so happy Tilo noticed. A big thank you to Melissa for fabricating the idea and having us all work together. I had fun in participating and adding my own personal touches to my poster.
   After the show, we all hung out around the bar and merchandise area. I was dying of thirst so I bee-lined over to the bar and downed a beer which I typically don't like. XD I wasn't planning to drink that evening but there was good reason to later! I am very grateful for the time we got to spend with the band and I still cannot fathom the whole experience. Tilo and Anne are so so kind to their fans and it was very touching to see how they carefully spent time talking to each one.  At the end of the evening, we all got goodbye hugs and then the group took a final photo with the band outside. I sadly was already gone at this point but I'm glad I got to see more folks the following day. The sleepy heads (haha XD ) and Meli! We took a cab ride to the airport together as we both had morning flights.

Saturday, 13.10.2012 in Essigfabrik, Cologne

I probably decided long ago that I will come to Cologne, when I knew that Melissa, Kitty, Nathalie, Nicolas and many more will come as well. The decision settled when also Tina and Kati from the Lacrigirls wanted to come. So many dear people who I will meet after such a long time! Not to forget Anne and Tilo and the other musicians. But I only realize my decision when I was searching for a ride to Cologne in the Internet, which I fortunately found. At Friday “already” I bought the ticket. And in the hotel room from Kitty and Mel a third bed was organized; I really will drive to Cologne!!
I arrived too late in my hotel room. Mel and Kitty were already gone, therefore I hurry. I met Nathalie and after some minutes touching up we took a taxi to Essigfabrik. There we met everyone else! It was so, so great to meet them finally personally! We were sympathizing in one! During the time of waiting the little surprise were prepared… After we could go out of the cold and rain, in the hall, we saved the second and third row. A little bit later in the hall I also met Tina and Kati.
It seemed like an eternity, I finally heard the famous sounds of the theme… There it is, I hardly believe, that I could experience such a great concert again! Like so often Henrik, Manne, Yenz, JP and Anne came to the stage. And also this time Tilo arrived later, during singing. Unbelievable what moments we all could experience! The atmosphere was just amazing and all our emotions we could share in a familiar and close way! An unbelievable magic was in the air. In the first part of the concert I could listen to, like in Karlsruhe, older and more “happier” songs. The second part after the break was again really heavy and hard… Yes, my soul was broken, especially seeing Tilo in such a suffering way. He underwent every single note, every single word. And exactly that is what Lacrimosa would never make me bored, even after hundred times. Mixed emotions, sad ones, happy ones, filled my soul… The last song, the second encore (yes, the atmosphere was that good!), was Copycat and all the crazy emotions could come out!
Already since Tuesday in Karlsruhe, I was thinking about to come to Ludwigsburg as well. But only this evening I had suddenly such a strange feeling, something like unstableness and sadness. Will I see Lacrimosa that soon?! What was it, which took me THAT much in the abyss?!

Sunday, 14.10.2012 in Rockfabrik, Ludwigsburg

When I woke up the next day, the world was not better. At once I call a ride to come to Ludwigsburg, which said yes. But though, I couldn’t look forward to the following goodbye. Only after a while, when I had to accept to live, I recognized what I will experience this evening.
The ride was terrible, no second sleep and less not thinking of it. And when I arrive and had to wait… Waiting could be really awful. A visit in a church and listening to that music inside calmed me down a bit. I met Christina and I was really happy that I can share it with her. I finally caught up my mood from her and the other fans. And there it is again. Theme. And this time everything was stronger. They had the same playlist (let me know if I’m wrong), but I never would miss a single song! Amazing how you find out new notes, new emotions, even after the third time. Like also Christina said, you hear everything more differentiated. Single guitar riffs, single keyboard sounds came along, even the drums seemed different. In the beginning the audience was pretty quiet, but the big applause, especially in the end, assured. Also here in Ludwigsburg the final song was Copycat. Then the party was over. As by a wonder I didn’t have to dry a single tear during the concert.

Theme
Komet
Malina
Mandira Nabula
Feuerzug
Lichtgestalt
If the world stood still a day
Alles Lüge
Tränen der Sehnsucht
Alleine zu zweit
Irgendein Arsch ist immer unterwegs
A Prayer for your heart
Apart
Stolzes Herz
Pause
Refugium
Ich verlasse heut den Herz
Am Ende stehen wir zwei
Weil du Hilfe brauchst
Not every pain hurts
Ohne dich ist alles nichts
Rote Sinfonie
Revolution
Zugabe
Der Morgen danach
Feuer
Copycat

And also this evening should end soon, unfortunately too early. The goodbye was very, very hard. I arrived at home, but I’m not sure how I did it. In the same night I was searching for trains and flights to Hamburg… but it was temporally and financial impossible to go. I probably have to wait some time, until I will meet those lovely people again…

A bit of impressions

Actually, too many i can only write a bit in 4 categories

Venues:
1.Essigfabrik in Koeln reminds me of 798, or Yu Gong Yi Shan, in Beijing, factory atmosphere was great but sound was not very good.
Das Bett in Frankfurt reminds me of Mao live in Beijing, small, hard to find out, small stage but very nice sound effect.
Gruenspan in Hamburg, a bit like Tango Club in Beijing, but this one is really the best venue, great inner decorations, lightening, sound, everything's perfect! And ohhh Hamburg looks like such a spicy hot city umm..um i  like it specially the cage of after show club ::)

These cities except Koeln it's my first time visit, love Koeln, cute city, and Hamburg feels special, feels like a hot, lustful artistic woman got a big character, you feel that once your train starts to enter Hamburg, different from other cities...feels like it's talking to you, strong personality. Frankfurt was quite..surreal, but if you go outside the town it's quite remote and nothing much
...and every day i can only start to leave after noon, so it was always tight...it does help to train my direction and german...! Now I think i can get to certain street in a strange city here, without too many problems(already had them XD)

Live: How could Rote Sinfonie turned out sooo fantastic at live! The new songs all got me and came even stronger than album!! I adore how Tilo plays Piano...it's really gonna kill me! No it kills me every time i saw it

People:
I met soooo many great cool people! Met many familiar forum members, shy people bold people(me) lol
Many as the way i imagined XD and met super girl Anastasia we were like so talkative chatting till 2 am after back in hotel when Frankfurt show ends and then go to to sleep lollll and then i wake up at 4.30 walk to Messe to catch S bahn lol Ohhh suuuuch great time still makes me excited!

I do find German people very quiet at live, that's just their style, too quite if compare with Asia. I feel that's just their way to respect artists as they don't want to make noise at live show, also they want enough space in each other. They are also excited but well controlled, they act a bit like those rules(!)they made for traffic, trains...or automaschines, reasonable, smooth, logic, gentle. (But Hamburg is very different, i guess people there are more open..or just too many Russian there lol?) Oh and I find Hamburg very metal and strong, and frankfurt feels more..goth and softer, some Russian are a bit more aggressive as in Ha
burg there's a guy standing too close behind me which annoys me hell i had to beat his arms twice to make him stay distance >:( And,,,,Asians do like take photos  lolll

Panic Situations:
No problem in Koeln. But Frankfurt i went alone, and i went on a totally opposite way and can't find that club, in the end i find two black goth lol and followed them to Bett.
The mooost panic situation ever was in Hamburg, it's close to open hour and i make appointment with Anastasia and Mozart to meet at hotel then go there together, but when i got off from S Bahn my mobile run out of battery, and i searched around no one speaks english!....in the end i bought one recharger and asked DB staff to charge for me....nice people  ;D ;D
Oh and shit i shouldn't stay up all night i was like zombie after Hamburg show loll

Lu Sha: ahh panic situations! I think the whole experience of the concerts makes up for it. :) I don't know if I mentioned but my bank account was tapped in Germany and somebody was trying to steal my information so my debit card got cancelled. XD Got the call from my bank and I was like .(well thank god I withdraw money beforehand) ->  <_< And I kept getting lost..and then got Kitty lost along with me. X))) Lesson learned: Next time traveling alone, stick to a taxi as much as possible and love your feet a little.

I also noticed that the German folks were very quiet/calm compared to audiences like over here. It first confused me but then I kind of enjoyed it because I am not always (rarely) super energetic at a show. I like to enjoy the music, note by note, lyric by lyric with enough space to breathe/move around. There were no catty girls or aggression in the crowd. What a miracle! I remember Anne was telling us how she heard in some places over seas they can throw things on stage. I was thinking, "ohh hell, if anyone did that to Lacrimosa then I'd go running after them with a shovel!!"  ;D


Jenny: Ah, I thought for a second that you wrote they had played "the party is over" and I had a mini heart-attack.  ;D

Cologne 13.10.2012

Travel to Cologne was horrifying... Entire week already I felt this knife touching my heart not deciding whether to slide in or not... it did eventually when I said goodbye to Jenny eventhough I already knew the separation would only last few hours. Tears were never far away during my train-travel which seemed to take hours...it took hours... actually... but only 3 and it seemed decades. Finally arriving I waited in front of the station to find Nastya, there were two options: recognise and be save or not recognise and be lost as our phones just didn't want to cooperate together and our means of communication was on the flight unable to help us find each other. But from far away I recognised Nastya and on purpose waited to see whether she'd figure out by herself (yes, mean sometimes  ;)) and she did ... it was nice to finally see you in real life where we had been writing quite often. Finding the hotel was a horror it seems I felt like quite helpless...I know Cologne you know, I've been there quite some times by now and still ... :D ... and though I realised afterwards that I am still able to read maps as I found my way to Melissa in the evening all by myself in darkness and with a big fear in my heart ... because that neighbourhood of the hotel wasn't too crowded at night. Finally we met again, my sweet Melipumpum whom I had missed soooo strong the past months! Life is so unfair having dropped us all on different continents on this planet!! Together we figured out the way to her hotel and we dropped our stuff, ate and then rushed to meet Nicolas and Christina... eventually... we had to wait :p :D It had been the day of delays and waiting, miscalculations and frustration...honestly eventhough I was very very very happy to meet everybody but I was delighted to drop dead in bed because ...

biiiip tuuuuut lalalala ... it took some time before I realised what happened. Our alarm was already there. Melissa was the first having the courage to get up... I then followed some time after we prepared, had breakfast and got on our way to the next hotel... as we had another one booked for Saturday night. Long story short we finally got to our way to Nicolas, Christina and Camille had lunch and then we went back to get ready... normally I'm pretty fast but it seems time did turn faster there :D we got on our way to the concerthall and I know that with eaaaach step closer my heart went beating more insane... gone was the knife I had still felt before. So demons can be tamed from time to time. Over there we met Nastya and Joey who were already waiting ... wondering where the actual intrance was. We got deceived by others where also Camille was :D and that same drunk guy of some years ago ... who got on my nerves even more than 2009. Waiting...waiting...waiting... and then Jenny stood there out of the blue and I felt my heart make a jump of joy... and she brought Nathalie, my sweet Nathalie... what happened that we haven't seen each other for so many years! When you embrace you keep on wondering why time rushed off that you haven't been able to emrbace more often. Slowely everyone was getting there, also Lü Sha arrived and brought the one who stole her heart whom I hadn't seen for over two years as well... shame shame! To be honest ... my heart was exploding by the love that was around there.
slowely time got near ... we went over to the right spot to que ... khem... half an hour before gates opened it started storming ... I already knew I was gonna be dead on Monday seeing I already had my cough back and my head started aching like a mad...luckily Melissa was my saving angel and had medicine with her and Christina was so kind to give me some of her precious water. So that the headache had nearly disappeared by the time the concert started. We were in second row, where I also met some people Jenny knew and was delighted to meet in person after hearing all the stories :) Then I find out who was there not so far away from us... not that drunk guy  ::) trying to get troubles with everybody who dared to get a little too near... why some people can be so difficult, I don't get it. Anyways time passed and with a little fear I heard the concert start .. knowing it was the last and who knows when will be the next. There was magic in the air I tell you... had always been dreaming of the day where I could spend this concert in surrounding of so many known faces some of which I hd already often encountered outside the virtual world and some for the first time but felt as if known for ages. Honestly, I'm so happy they changed the opening song ... in Vienna it had been Revolution and for some reason I had an awkward feeling back then eventhough I can't tell why but ... Ich bin der brennende Komet did its job well and boom I was into this different world. First part went by with a lot of love in my heart ... I had the perfect spot to be honest view on every musician on stage and had my favorite guitarplayer right in front of me. Did I tell, Henrik is an amazing guy? did I? :D he is! Well anyway ... first part was over as said before Tilo went out during the break I kept waiting on spot... anxious... feeling in my little toe what would happen after the break...the break. I can only say that I was above happy that I had my friends around me. Refugium and I felt the tears sting my eyes with the very beginning already... this line-up is so heavy... it shattered my heart once more, this time deeper ... ich verlasse ... this song always had the deepest impact on me I was torn I have no words to describe what happened there but I was happy to be surrounded by people who understood me without words, who would never ask for an explanation because they experience things the same way. Am Ende stehen wir zwei ... ja ... everything went fine, till that scream came... already during previous concerts it went through every cell of my entire body, made every hair on my arms stand straight and gave me shivers down my spine... on Saturday ... I cannot describe it ... on Saturday I sensed tripple the emotions transported in it ... beautiful yet so painful. Song after song I sensed everything even deeper than I had before... was it due to these dear people around? was it because I let go of my boundaries? in any case it was over way too fast. And as usual after a concert I feel like I've been running a marathon and went too deep... I could fall asleep on spot after a concert.

After the concert we spent some more time with Nathalie on our room somewhen I apparently fell asleep guess the alcohol helped me there. And woke up when Nathalie left for her room... I can't really remember how I got into my pyjamas, neither how I ended up perfectly straight in bed... but I did ... and must have fallen asleep right away... during the night I've been dreaming crazy stuff about the concert, about the meetings, about the feelings... goodbyes were regrettably part as well... spent the day in Cologne with Nathalie and before I knew I was back on my own... on my way home and all I could think of; why is it, that people who love each other are doomed to live so far apart?

Nicolas, you're just too lazy to research in our archives, remember, everything is kept on fb :P the very original idea of 'Many nations, one revolution' was Nastya's! Though the idea of 'Love above all' was Natalia's and the idea of combining the two was mine and the final order was Nastya's, so tooootally a collective creation :D
Many thanks Melissa! Now I really know it all :)))

I also noticed that the German folks were very quiet/calm compared to audiences like over here.

It seems I am the only one who did not see the German audience quite :D I really want to see the concert over there now, to see how a really loud audience behaves :D :D :D

Beautiful reviews everyone, I can't comment on every little thing but I read every line with pleasure! Even though I don't agree with everything about the setlist, but I guess this is mainly a matter of taste :P
I hope I will find myself not too lazy for reviewing during today :P

Hey Eve. I am not sure, because I did not listen to it - but I read names like anathema and muse here in the forum- somewhen before?!
Title: Antw:Revolution Tour Impressions
Post by: Eve on October 20, 2012, 17:11:29
Muse as well as some other great bands were really to be heard before the gigs, as warming up:) But this melody (just piano music, without words) was always on between the two parts of the gigs. Tilo said it was sort of japanese music but no idea what the name was. I would really like to find this music and have it in my playlist.

Lacrimosa  in Cologne/ 2012

I guess, I give it a try and also write a short review as well. One week after the concert in Cologne. Not really too much about the concert itself, but some of my impressions of the night, for those who are interested.

Well, at the very beginning it was just planned that the two of us- Kitty and I- would go to Cologne.
Therefore it was pretty overwhelming for me that so many people of this Forum/ the LacriWelt from all over the world found their way to Cologne as well.
I arrived too late at our  hotel in Cologne Center and had to search like crazy for a parking.  Kitty and Melissa already went to the Essigfabrik.
I felt a little guilty that I could not join earlier.
Luckily Jenny phoned me and told me that she would also arrive at the hotel arround 17.00 o`clock. Besides, it was r e a l l y   great to meet Jenny in real finally!

Anyway, Jenny and I took a taxi to the Essigfabrik and  there they were.
First of all I saw my beloved Kit-Cat. How very, very good it felt to see her again. And then I saw all the others..: I just thought: WOW.
It was just crazy to see you all at one place & in REAL. Knowing that Sia just came from the USA, Lü Sha from China, Malina from Spain, 2 other beauties from France and so on....what a crime that not even more people from the forum could manage it to come to cologne. (just think of Klodi for instance....)

Not 10 minutes later, the door of the Essigfabrik opend and Tilo & Anne came out. I was not only a little but really under shock. I did not expect that and I did not expect to see them immediately after arriving at the Essigfabrik but expected to see them  on stage (and by the way, I did not check that we were standing at the back entrance, I thought it was the main entrance).
Well, everybody went to Tilo and Anne to welcome them & make some pix. Well, I did not- perhaps still under shock  to see the old man for the first time after 3 years again- or just too impressed by his  „perfect“ hairstyle ;-))...however. At least I shaked Anne`s hands..;-).Besides, it was the first time I could change some words with her. And she really seems to be a very sympathic woman.

Well, my cousin also arrived a little later. Totally ill- but my „old punk“ made it finally.  I told her, that she must join me- because of her I know Lacrimosa and I wanted to have her by my side, listening to „Alles Lüge“ at least once in our life-time TOGETHER..

But I am afraid, it was not a too good idea, to ask her for bringing some beer.
The next morning I really had a very, very bad headache because of all the beers of the night before  and that does not really happen too often to me...

Anyway, the concert started and I enjoyed it just too much.
And again- 3 years later- I stood there with Kitty at a Lacrimosa- Concert.
But also with so many other wonderful people from this forum. That was just..without words again.

What shall I say. I really loved it. There were many emotional moments.         

Seing Tilo on stage just felt so immense good and so familiar. I could not say, which song I loved most. Perhaps Feuerzug & Alles Lüge  but no, I guess all songs...

At the end, it really hurted, not to know, when we gonna see Tilo again. He is such a warm-hearted & wonderful man. But I guess, whoever is in this forum, knows that feeling.
 
And I thank Tilo, Anne, the rest of the guys on stage- and of course you, the guys I could meet! I felt so much positive feelings & love around me...........that was just amazing and filled my heart with joy.  That felt like a real peaceful Revolution...;-)

THANX for the night to you guys!  I guess, we won t find together in that constallation that quickly again.

Thanx to Tilo as well, for the last 3 years, he joined us so often in this forum & that your forum „Meine Welt“ created such a lovely community of warm-hearted people.

Last but not least also a pretty nice review of the concert in Cologne, I found:

(just think of Klodi for instance....)
Oh yes, I follow that ... it was so good to finally hold you in my arms again :) and it's so stupid, I keep saying that all the time, so stupid that we don't meet up more often because first of all Bonn/Köln is really not THAT far! and your home in Belgium is probably even closer so... so silly time! And it was crazy indeed...the most surreal moment to me was when Lu Sha stand in front of me all at once and how it felt like so normal and so abnormal at the same time :D more over the aspect she's together with a guy I knew before  xD makes it even more absurd hahaha...

This lady really stole my heart during this last tour as well in these terms I think she doesn't just seem sympathic, she just IS sympathic! she's a brilliant woman to my opinion! And I just had to state this (thanks for the chance :D)  ... because I still think too many people oversee her love or else don't find it necessary to spread it out as much as with Tilo ... but she IS one loving person.

they were many ... those magical beautiful emotional moments :) and I was so so so grateful that you were there near me to share them!!!

Again, I loved seeing the pictures, all of you together, and with tilo and anne! Excelent!

After having listened to a couple of songs, not Lacrimosa actually, just some 80-s bands, I for the damned 100000 times came up with the idea that music is one of the most precious things in the world! I understand that I miss this tour.. It was just wonderful, everything - how kind and amiable the guys from the band are, the possibility to get to know excellent people and to have a look at different places, everything!

Hallo dear guys, I'd like to ask, maybe anyone knows the name of the extremely beautiful piano music which played during the break?

Maybe some Yann Tiersen piano piece? o__O I didn't pay attention during the brakes! u.u
Title: Antw:Revolution Tour Impressions
Post by: Eve on October 27, 2012, 15:19:23
Oh Tiersen is adorable!! Especially the Good bye Lenin OST, piano is such a magical instrument.. Funny, almost noone noticed this melody in the break, I at first thought it was a new Lacrimosa-piece and that it was supposed to be a surprise:-)

The only piano I recall hearing was Chopin's Nocturne which I believe was B flat minor op. 9 no.1 or C sharp minor. However, I think that was before the actual concert started. Not too sure about music during interlude.

So, flight tickets for Madrid ok.
Hotel booked.
No tickets for the concert, but I think it won't be sold out (above all, I hope !).
So excited to see them again, 3 months after Z7 live !

Tilo, if you read me, can you do the same playlist than this Z7 concert, plus "Siesht du mich im licht", "Deine Nahe", "Halt mich" and eventually "Durch nacht und flut" ? Thanks  :-[ ;D

Heeeeey Olivier, so we can meet, this time, then!! :) i'm coming too, and with my little sister :) a few other people from the forum too ;)
and i found a cheap way to get the tickets before arrival at Barcelona, by the way, check the website of Sala Salamandra, the concert hall, they sell tickets online and then you get the tickets and can print them yourself :) only 1,5 euros more than for Barcelona people buying in advance in a shop there!

Oh wow, it's really cool!! but hey, we don't know your face either! :P ok, you can look for a red haired girl (Christina Lady Malina) with a very black haired girl (me) and a young Teenage girl (my sister, maybe the easiest to spot in the crowd ^^) plus one guy and one brown haired girl (Camille Miss Scabtree). It's also highly probable Camille will have a French flag ;) hope we find each other!!

Mission accomplished for Tilo including a personalized hug  8)

@Gandalf, it was so nice to meet you! You really rock! \m/

Héhé  8)

Once again, what a FUCKIN' concert ! Only one regret: too short ! "Only" 2 hours. 30 minutes less than in ocotber. So no "Malina", "Mandira Nebula" or "Halt mich"... But "Durch nacht und flut" and a cataclysmic "Copycat" !  :o
Fantastic audience, as usual in Spain.

A great great evening, thanks to the concert of course, but thanks to many great Lacrifans too ! Such a pleasure to meet in real my favorite "french to english translator" Melissa, and her little sister, Lady Malina and  Eiseskälte (don't worry, your are perhaps a little more quiet than me, but you rock too !  ;D), and this crazy Camille !
The after show was, how can I say that... funny ? Rotten ? A little bit of each.

Very funny with my french friends of Toulouse, then with the Lacrifans (I told you :"taxi is faster than subway !").
Rotten because the Mephisto is to the other side of Barcelona, compared to the Salamandra, and there was not many metalheads, and the dj wasn't the best I have known !

I'm happy to have discussed 2 minutes with Anne, a very  charming (and charmful !) personn.

Definitely no regret to have done the trip to Barcelona at the last moment.

Hope to see you soon in real guys and girls !

On the other hand, I haven't got facebook, so if you can post some pictures here ;)
And Melissa, can you send my pic with Anne on my personnal mail ? Thanks !

So, finally there comes my personal impressions of both 18 and 19 January ^^ I thought I could not write them until my last exams were over, but anyway I've been studying the whole day and at the moment my head can't anymore *feels bad* xDDD

MADRID 18-01-13

Nicolas and me get up at 5 am to get the train that arrives in Madrid at 9.00 o'clock am. After such a mess ,because we could not find each other through the station (LOL), finally we met my dear friend, who leads the Spanish fanclub with me and is the webmaster of the web, and his girlfriend, and then he drove us to the venue. It was already 11 am and there were 3 fans queuing since 9 am (just amazing). Some minutes later, few people arrived to the queue and we spent a lovely time knowing a bit each other, talking about previous concerts and experiences with Lacrimosa. Me and my friend had previously made a poster of the Fanclub for Tilo and Anne, and we all signed it with our names and  wrote a sentence for it and dedicated to the band: "Dieser Tag ist erfïllt von dir!" It was sooooooo lovely while we were doing it all together <3
The weather was terribly cold  and windy in Madrid, and we werejust sitting in the floor, close to the venue, but we did not mind! we waited impatiently the hour were the doors were opened finally!
When the time was getting close, more people were coming little by little, and finally, at around 20.15 (dont remember exactly) the venue staff opened the doors: this was one of the moments when I felt more nervous and excited!
We got the stage, first row, an incredibly good place!!!! And we waited for the band to come. And now here comes the "less good" thing of the day: it seems there was a problem with the band flights and they did not appear until more than 21.30! This was also remarkable in the show, since the set list was shortened from 21 songs to 16. The audience got pretty upset (including us), since we didnt know what was happening actually. But finally Tilo, Anne and the rest of the band came and the concert started. After the first or second song (dont remember exactly) Tilo explained abour the problem and the mess with the flights and everything got OK again. The show was completely awesome and amazing, and I am very proud of the audience in my country (probably one of the few things I am proud of my country xD). The setlist, I guess it is not unknown by most of you ;): Komet, Schakal, Lichtgestalt, Alleine zu Zweit, Stolzes Herz, Not every pain hurts, Der Morgen Danach, Durch Nacht und Flut, Ich verlasse heut dein Herz, Copycat, Rote Sinfonie, If the world stood still a day, Irgendein Arsch ist immer unterwegs, Alles Lüge, Revolution, Weil du Hulfe Brauchst...
For me the best moments were:
- Rote Sinfonie: when we show the poster with the sentence and Tilo looks at it with a shinning smile....oh my....<3, incredibly touching, really.
- Durch nacht und flut: because of the sentence in Spanish: it touchs my heart each time I listen to him singing in my language...nobody can imagine the emotions it creates in me
- Weil du Hilfe Brauchst: this song is dinamite for my sensibility and emotions.
- Copycat: the whole audience got crazy with the performance of this song: it was brilliant!
- Ich verlasse heut dein herz: because of the spanish sentence ("porque te quiero" - "because I love you") Tilo sang, and because they were actually not allowed to play it anymore and they did!! <3
Finally after the concert, we waited because we wanted to stay and talk a bit with the band, and someone of the venue crew told us that the band was getting out the venue so we should go to the door to wait for them. And so did we ;). There were tons of people waiting! and all or mostly all of them got their pics with Tilo/Anne/both and also autographs. I got my pic with sweet Tilo, hugged him and also gave him a hug from Klodi ;)
Finally they had to leave and me, Nicolas and my friends went to a party, but just for a little time, since we were exhausted. Then my friend of the fanclub drove us to the station and at 6 am we took the train to Barcelona.

BARCELONA 19-01-13

We reached Barcelona station at 9.15 am. Then I went to my flat, and quickly had little breakfast, a shower, dressed up and went to the venue again :p. Nicolas felt so tired and stayed at his flat for a little sleep.
I arrived at the venue at noon and I was completely alone there! The weather was not cold but it started to rain, so I was so umcomfortable, trying to not getting wet xD. Then I met a girl of the fanclub coming from a faraway city of Spain, another nice guy that was alone as well, and I meet Gandalf and his friend in their car: they got me to ask if this was the venue of the concert, and at this moment I had no idea of who were them LOL, xDDDD.
Then few minutes later, Maria from Leipzig (she was also in Köln and 6 more concerts in Germany), and fiiiinally the amazing Camille comes, after having made a bit mess with the venue (the venue was called Salamandra 1, and there is another in the same street called Salamandra 2, and this led to some ppl to confusion xD). After that my Nicolas came and then Melissa and her cutie sister :). The weather was still rainy, but we finally achieved to get a place with a roof in the door of the venue :p. We ate the stuff we brought (Meli's muffins were absolutely delicious) and after some time of thinking, we made amazing posters for the band, for showing them during the show. The posters had this moto: The international Revolution goes on ^^. Then at 21.00 doors are opened again and we get agaaaain the front row...just amazing!!!!! This time the concert starts on time without any incidence, and with the original setlist of 21 songs: the same as in Madrid plus Feuer, Apart , Ohne dich ist alles Nichts. The audience was even louder and crazier than in Madrid, so Tilo even said: Barcelona rocks!!! and actually it is true, Barcelona rocks!!!! The most touching moments were
- when Tilo saw our poster and smiled again with his lovely and breathtaking smile.
- Durch Nacht und Flut (again because of the spanish part ^^)
- Weil du Hilfe brauchst...I could not help crying my eyes out this time...In Madrid I got emotioned and with few tears, but in Barcelona I cried soooo hard and deep. I could not stop really, and I thank Meli when she held my hand while I was crying...really this was incredible, I felt real warmth, real support, thank you again my dear Meli <3
Then after the concert, and while we got to the afterparty, there happened the "less good" or rather weird thing of the day: the mess with the aftershows that were taking place for the band that night. I dont feel like posting here the whole thing in detail, so if someone wants to know, he/she can ask me by PM or in FB and I will be glad to tell....It is just I dont wanna spoil my impressions because of this really disgusting stuff...
After getting lost through the subway of Barcelona we finally got "Mephisto", where the official party was taking place. There, it was lucky Nicolas who had the chance of talking more with Tilo and Anne...I talked a bit with Tilo, who explained to me what happened with the parties, and I finally could gave him a little present I got for him and also explained to him the meaning of the present <3. His way of explaining made me feel much better and relieved....and I thank Nicolas, Meli and the rest, and you know perfecly why...you were right!. Melissa and the rest could not get so close to them unfortunately....and this was also partially because of some disgusting and annoying people that thought they were the only fans being there and the only fans wanting and having the right of talking with the band (some of you know whom I mean ¬¬). This was another thing that made me (and makes me now, because who knows when I will have the chance of getting close to him again :( ) sad...: I would have liked to have more time to talk with the band (especially with Tilo), since there were things I wanted to tell to him and finally could not...:( and not only feel sad about me, but also about the dear friends that neither could talk to him/the band...u.u.

Finally, when the band left, we did so: we took the tube and there were the sad moment of saying goodbye....u.u
After that, Nicolas and me went to my dear Undead, and , finally, after 48 sleepless hours, we went to my flat to sleep and rest :)

So this is all from my side ^^ Pics will follow soon in FB
I am so thankful to the amazing people I met in Madrid, to the members of the Spanish fanclub for make it possible, to my Nicolas, dear Melissa, her lovely sister, amazing Camille, Maria, Gandalf and all the people I met in Barcelona, for everything: for your presence, for your words, ....you know...Thank you!!!

And of course thank to Lacrimosa for such amazing evenings...and especially thank you Tilo: you are one of the best persons I've ever met, and as I said when I sad goodbye to you: I will be always there supporting you...now even more <3

you're too sweet *big hug*  :) 

lovely and really emotional reviews ... i wish i was there  :(  however, what i want to say is that it's really ugly how some people abuse their "power" just to get what they want  >:(  as for those annoying 2 fans - i can't possibly expect anything else from THEM  ::)

- Ich verlasse heut dein herz: because of the spanish sentence ("porque te quiero" - "because I love you") Tilo sang, and because they were actually not allowed to play it anymore and they did!! <3



They aren't allowed? O.o Explain please! XD



Chris & Gandalf, thank you so much for the reviews!!  ;D Looking forward to seeing photos!

@Klodi:
*big hug back*
I wish u could have been there too....:/
And, yes, you could not have told better...people abusing of their power just to get what they want...¬¬
For the two...yes, and actually these were the last two persons I would have expected in a Lacriconcert in Spain -.-

@Nastya
They were not allowed not because of the song, of course :D, but because of the lack of time: they started the show quite late and there was a party taking place immediately after the concert...That's why the setlist was shortened, but they played it ^^ soooo nice

ahaha yes ! Fantastic coincidence !  :o 8) ;)
Thanks for the reviews, it's still interesting to have different points of view.
As for me, the most powerful moments of the Barcelona show were:
"Komet/Schakal" (2 matserpieces to begin the concert by the best way)
"Stolzes herz"
"Ich verlasse heut' dein herz"
"Rote sinfonie"

What a pity for "Malina" and "Feuerzug"  :(

Christina Thanks for your review... already heard about the famous duo... It's sad that they didn't give others a chance... As for the party-story I can somehow imagine, I think? It's the other side of fan-bases I guess... Too bad that they had problems with flights O.o ... hope nothing too serious, possibly because of the snowy weather, it's winter after all... glad to read you had a great time nonetheless :) and looking forward to pics as well!

Gandalf thanks for your review :) sounds like the lacrimosa-concert-bug caught you :D

Yes, I guess u can imagine because u know already part of the story, if you want I can tell you, but I dont want to put even more stress to you with another message! ^^
And yes, I guess this what happened with their flights...such a pity, but anyway, they went on with the show ;)

Ah, Christina please... you don't put stress on me when you write me :D you just shouldn't expect me to write back the next minute (anymore... because my job doesn't allow me, today I had my free day :D I usually read every mail the same day still but I take my time to write back :) ...and if it takes too long you SHOULD remind me, because then I probably thought I already wrote back... and even then you don't put stress on me ;)) But I can somehow imagine the fuss, seeing it's everywhere the same hehehe... fans will be fans. They're professional people what did you expect ;) no snowy weather is going to keep them away from their stage :D

Hahaha random fact, I was sleeping some hours ago and at some point, I woke up and read the reviews and went back to sleep hahaha and I thought I had dreamt it xD until now that I come back to the forum! Anyway, thank you so much for your reviews guys, I get all excited everytime I read those words, I'm glad you guys had a great time and Cristina, about the party, it's a real pity  :( I don't know what happened but I can imagine,I think is the same that always happen here in Mexico.. But in general, I can see that everything went well and thank you again for share your experiences.

Dear Malina! Thank you very much for the review!  ;D ;D it's flowing with such emotions and life....! I'd like to relive it again back in October..i can recall every detail....  And that's really sad about flight...but Tilo was trying to push and make things happen and make you happy..that's very sweet. And can imagine when They singing Durch Nacht und Flut in spanish at live!!! god..... ;D *imaginging Tilo singing chinese and failed XD*
And you are not alone... someone can ruin a party, that sounds a bit similar like what we had in Hamburg after party, when band was nice and trying to give, some took it all and left others nothing....but you always got different people who are unpredictable in behavoir....so never mind, the whole thing was pretty meaningless when i look at it  ;D

Annnnnd I want try Meli's muffin next time !! 8) now will check out your photos!  ;D ;D ;D ;D

And here is finally my review, dear friends :) hope you don't mind the length... I wrote absolutely everything i could remember, because i want to be able to read it again some time myself too, and not miss a thing!

So, after all the waiting, this so carefully saved and prepared concert trip finally arrived. My sister and me left Paris early on Saturday by plane, with no troubles except pulling the suitcase in the snow in the streets ^^ When we finally arrived to our hotel (we did have a bit of trouble getting there, it was further than we thought and not in the area of Barcelona easiest to understand : the industrial zone !), we quickly showered and changed before hurrying to the venue, in taxi this time, because i was fed up with the pouring rain U.U Christina had told me she was waiting alone but by the time we arrived Camille and Nicolas had both joined her. She actually sent Nicolas to guide my sis and me as we arrived to the wrong venue (what Chris explained with Sala 1 and Sala 2) so he came to rescue us (well, some 200m walk, i guess, nothing too big :P). Then we settled down together and all of us took out what we had prepared for the wait : Chris a blanket and pies and Nicolas chips and me self-made muffins and Camille was drinking beer of course ^^ there was also a nice Ecuatorian guy, Jave (Javier I guess ?), who went to get some beer for himself and brought us some sweets, that was sooo nice of him! So we started discussing, especially the Madrid concert, the parties to come, a new poster idea (we had decided more or less to do a new one but not which one), and generally joking and having fun : notably we founded our band, « Death for Furniture », where Nicolas is keyboardist, i am guitarist, with Camille, i think, and well, the most important feature is that we throw beer and muffins on our audience when they are being nice ^^ Also, most of us quickly went to a coffee shop nearby, except Chris who stayed to take care of our things, and when we walked back and arrived near the venue again, guess who went out of a taxi? Henrik!! :D and then… also Tilo, and also Anne! :P so we looked and smiled and commented i guess but went on, but then adorable, so polite Tilo went after us (we had already turned away !) to shake all our hands ^^ i was quite impressed because it was quite late and they were obviously hurrying but he came anyway :) well, after a while of waiting in the little exterior lobby of the venue, we were made to leave this place and return in the street to make a proper queue ^^ Camille and me were extremely impressed at the politeness of Spanish people then who asked who arrived before and after them in order to keep the same order of the queue O.O of course at the moment of entering the venue a pair of people tried to cheat a bit but most were very disciplined, at least then… (then at the after-party it was quite different :P) that’s then that I recognised Han, the Chinese-French girl we had met at Cologne already, so Camille and me went to say hello! :D and then, fiiiiinally, it was time to enter and we were the first to get in and took the place under Tilo’s microphone immediately. The stage was quite high, that was weird O.O but we didn’t care since we had the best place :D that’s when we went cazy taking loads of pics :D which was really fun! (I forgot to mention, Gandalf, i was looking out for you the whole time when new people were arriving to the queue, plus in the venue! but in vain…).
And suddenly, the lights got dim and the intro sounded…then I think is when I looked at my sis with a big crazy smile and tried to talk with eyes then for the first of many times during the concert :D Of course they started with my dearest explosive Komet, which was totally rocking as always :D in total we enjoyed 5 songs from Revolution ; not the piano songs that they had played in the German tour, for want of a piano, and that left out my dearest Feuerzug and Refugium, however, you know how it is, it’s still Lacrimosa and nothing felt really missing at the end of the concert! So this means they did play Irgendein Arsch, with Tilo’s explaining words before, If the world stood still, a very deep-going performance of Weil du Hilfe brauchst…, Rote Sinfonie, and Revolution, also with GREAT words of introduction by Tilo, on this song being on how this world doesn’t go so well because people don’t always care about each other, but forget about love, and the strength it can give. I just loved his words so much!!! :) and khem, was so happy to get an English version after the frustration in Cologne ^^ Then, in the « oldies » we also had Schakal (btw Nicolas i thought then that you must be happy^^), Lichtgestalt (i think that’s when my voice started disappearing suddenly O.O ^^), always touching Alleine zu zweit, calm Apart from Anne, cool Der Morgen Danach when we all suddenly held each other and that was such a cool feeling of family <3 (we did that on another song before but can’t remember which one ? :s), and then, after their first exit i think, awesome Alles Lüge, my Anne-favourite Not every pain hurts, perfect as always, as well as beautiful Ohne Dich, played especially because « Spain hasn’t hosted the Schattenspiel tour so they needed to make up to that », which is the song that personally touched me most, this time. After the second encore then came Stolzes Herz and Verlasse. And we managed to call them a third time (my voice had been replaced by an unknown noise then :P), reclaiming Copycat of course, and i am pretty sure I’ve never seen such an explosive version of it, though it’s always been a crazy song!!! And it was the perfect ending as always of course.
We had managed to show our poster after Komet and before Schakal, but also at the moment when Tilo took a pic of the audience, and that was soooo cool :D otherwise, Yenz visited our corner of stage quite early, and Henrik too, twice! And he threw 2 different spectrums in the crowd, what a generous man ^^ Henrik was also really cool to interact with during the concert, as mentioned on facebook, he loves staring at you when you look at him! hahaha and i loved that :P and also that explains the good pics I have of him ^^ and of course Tilo’s and Anne’s dancing were fascinating as always! :)
After the end, we suddenly found Gandalf (ok, he found us, actually!) as he was shouting “Melissa” and I heard and there we were! We hang out a little, while wondering what to do about the two parties taking place afterwards, who had both invited the band. We then came across Maria who is a German girl who was also backstage in Cologne. In the end, after much scheming and negociating with all the people we could find, we were told where they were heading (congrats to Nicolas and Maria again on this achievement! :P) and started leaving there. That wasn’t after Henrik had gone out and I tried to reach him to give Kitty’s greets and hug but failed miserably because hey, that guy is quite popular too! :P so it was the first failure of the night. Then, it took us a loooong metro way plus even longer walking to reach the club finally. Thank god for GPS btw, I do think it saved us :P but at the club, there were already many people surrounding and waiting to talk to Tilo, I guess about 10/15/20 most of the time? So it was pretty difficult situation, especially since I’m already shy originally, especially with people I admire. I also didn’t wanna jump on Tilo the second we got away from a fan, so I guess that left room for other people too. So I managed to talk to Anne a little and give her my gift and letter, but nothing at all to Tilo, if he got my gift it’s because I practically threw it into his hands… Anyway, I had a great time dancing on both Bite me and a bit later Alles Lüge album version, and that was GREAT, a club with some Lacrimosa!!! I simply loved it, and it helped me shrug some frustration off :) so after some time, JP started warning it was time to go and then had to get Tilo away from his fans and the fans away from him, and he was a real hero, honestly, what a difficult job, I hope he doesn’t have to do it every time, poor man! ^^ I was very grateful to him ^^ after that we decided to go back (it was already past 4am and my sis was starting to fall asleep on her feet :P) and had an eventless return, said good bye in the metro and walked back with fucking birds singing again!!!!! And barely slept 30 mns before getting up to get the plane ;D (I’ve never felt closer to zombies than yesterday, Sunday that is ;D) Of course that last part was quite upsetting, but I still have the memories of backstage in Cologne, and that is so much already that the rest doesn’t really matter, not to mention the concert was simply beyond words, perfect connection, Lacrimosa :)

@Meli
what a great review  :)  pity they didn't play Feuerzug and Refugium, but like you said, what hasn't been played doesn't matter at the end, because it's always so great  :)  we're talking about Lacrimosa here, and that means it can't be any different than awesome and great and bombastic and ... the best^^  8)

Sweet Meli, thank you so much for such long and emotional report! I enjoyed reading it, as if i was there! It's so intense and got so much emotions...and interesting to know people heading there from different parts, really international revolution!  ;D ;D
So the poster works!(better than we had in Koeln XDDD)
And nice to read how Hendrik and JP react, was really nice, i guess it can be so much pressure for them, but they really take care of fans...taking care of their feelings, also Yenz, more than one fans told me that Yenz was comforting them when they felt kind of upset and so...I love this lineup in Lacrimosa, kind and warmhearted people they are  ;D and god i can imagine how fans swarming to Tilo and Anne ...such hectic event!  ;D (yes i remember you were shy  ;) but cute )

Glad you enjoyed it :) Ah and indeed people from all over Europe, also a Belgian couple! And the two people mentioned by Christina were Russians. By the way I was also sooo surprised when Chris explained who they were... O.O

And I read my review already (and woah, missing all these adorable people so much, and I don't mean just Lacrifriends...) and I realised I failed to mention that we heroically and daringly succeeded to sneak in my underage sister in the club, thanks to Camille's strategic skills!! That was so cool, muahaha ^^

Meli thank you very much for such a great job if making this very detailed review! I liked it very much! I must add it's a very frankly and simply written review which makes it very easy to read, hehe)))
and don't be upset, you've had some time just to look, your eyes told everything!
I have the same feature of becoming shy with the people I admire and very much want to talk to, so the very first time if not Klodi I would have never come after Tilo and would be standing there forever scared to disturb thinking "omg is he real?"  :D and even the next times xD

Sweet Melissa, for some reason I thought I had already answered here...must have been the virus and microbes who blurred my mind... I thank you very much for your torough review :) it's so great to read it from your perception specially after having experienced my last lacrimosaconcert to such a deep-level together with you! I would have loved to be there again with you but I'm sure we will experience it again together one day for sure :) In the meantime I can only enjoy how you got me being part of it anyway as I was for a moment in the concerthall whilst reading your review :) thanks a lot and great that you had an amazing time despite some irritations! *biiiiiiiiiiig thankful hug*

Reports and reviews will follow, at least from me as soon as I can!  :) But I doubt that I'll have access to a PC in StPete after the concert and then there's another concert in Moscow right on the next day, so it may take time for me to write anything here because of all the travels. But I'll do my best. ;)

i agree with DeviD, and i at the moment i have no words to express how it was!  :-[

How it was - tons of pleasant impressions!
At first, i came there just in an hour, almost no traffic jams. It was great to meet the girls - Anya Felisa, Julia, Anastassija, Galarina, Helen and others, we came in, still had some time to hang posters, and the concert started in just some 5 minutes!!! I thought we'll be waiting but then we all heard the sounds of Intro and rushed to the balcony edge!
They started with the traditional program, choosing very powerful songs and finished with the very beloved Ohne Dich Ist Alles Nichts, and then Tilo introduced the second part - Revolution album, which started with Verloren, then beautiful Anne (and i liked her costume very much, amazing!) performed If The World Stood Still A Day right after that. The hall really burst with emotions almost on every song, especilly we torn our voices and clapped the hands off on Irgendein Arsch Ist Immer Unterwegs, Ich Verlasse, and our very damn beloved and forever admired Der Morgen Danach (i'm ready to watch it's live performance every day).
There were some sonds which brought beautiful nostalgic memories and squeezed the soul, melodic and powerful, like Ohne Dich and Apart and Weil Du Hilfe Brauchst. And when the concert came to its end they granted us with optimistic Stolzes Herz and burst the show end with Feuer. I have to mention the even more beautiful guitar solos, and the new drummer played his first show with Lacrimosa wery successful! Everything was great - the sound, the amazing visual effects, and the A2 venue is really nice, very comfortable and rather big place, i wish they come there again. A bar right behind the back - very nice to refresh your throat in the meanwhile xD Cosy sofas, good view from the balcony - so I have to say I am very very much happy to visit this concert after 3 years, thank you very very much and please come back again and again dear Lacrimosa!
Sorry, unfortunately i couldn't pass your wishes as it didn't happen to meet the band after the show, but i wrote them all down and may be one day i'll read this paper aloud XD
So, the show was over, it was sad to say good bye to the girls as they went to Moscow in some time but I went home with beautiful memories (and I got lost as i don't know this part of the city even with gps, to set free some swear words about my brain and blind dumb head which missed the turn and the gps which didn't want to stay on the windshield and fell on the floor) but at last i got to my native Kupchino and dropped myself on the bed (after some tea and facebooking of course XD )

Here you are the setlist of the concert of 21.03.2013 in St.Petersburg:

Lacrimosa Theme
Ich Bin Der Brennende Komet
Alleine Zu Zweit
Alles Lüge
Not Every Pain Hurts
Schakal
I lost My Star In Krasnodar
Ohne Dich Ist Alles Nichts
--
Verloren
If The World Stood Still A Day
Feuerzug
Irgendein Arsch Ist Immer Unterwegs
Liebesspiel/part of Fassade
Rote Sinfonie
Weil Du Hilfe Brauchst
Revolution
--
Apart
Ich Verlasse Heut Dein Herz
Der Morgen Danach
Stolzes Herz
--
Feuer

you are very welcome guys, happy to urgently share the impressions!  ;D The end was a Fassade culmination chords, and how Tilo performed, expressed it on stage, it was amazing! in a bind with visual effects! There were so many people filming so don't worry the videos will appear soon ))) just sorry, my shitty camera is not for filming at all, and the second we have is a khem, how to call it - a professional? (i think so) - can't be taken and it cannot shoot the movies so i relaxed and enjoyed ))) and there were professional photographers with those zebra-colored and other lenses so soon there will be many quality pictures!
I hope Tilo plays this song in all the other concerts!

I think they upload it there, if not i will share some videos from Russian social networks )))

just re-looked through the set-list, i find it very logical how Tilo arranges the border songs of every part of the concert: at first it burns, ending with Ohne Dich Ist Alles Nichts -> Verloren and this part ends with Revolution and then -> Apart and "returning to the basis" with a load of optimism ))) And the final message for future - Feuer ))) May be i exaggerate but i think the order is not an occasion!

Olya - thanks you so much!!! Amazing how much my heart longs for the concert again, as Chris Malina said, SO FUCK*ING MANY memories coming back, eh, a bit too much for my heart. I was already anxious just thinking that the concert was gonna take place, now I'm sooo longing... Maybe that's the reason why I was feeling emotional again the last days... I wish wish wish I had gone to Russia in time to see them with you! but no, I'll be there in 2 weeks >.< :( and anyway, absolutely no money for the ticket.
Amazing setlist, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw Verloren!! if I'm not mistaken they hadn't played this song at all during the European tour?? And Liebesspiel: OMG I looooooong!!! XD I adore that song, and I think it MUST be brilliant live, and apparently it was!! So cool :) now my resolve is set, I will go to Castle Party definitely and until then pray every day they keep that setlist u.u :P aaaah, can't wait!!
Anyways, thanks again for making this long review, and making it already today, and congrats on the banners, really nice one :) and glad you enjoyed!! :)

@Meli: the concert itself brought me beautiful memories of the past concerts too, emotions always overflow! I understand you perfectly!

as for Liebesspiel with Fassade-ending, cannot explain it in words - yes, just brilliant, i hope you see it live or there will be a really good video, i found a short noisy video on VK but I think I shouldn't spoil your first impression )))

Sorry for being a bit late but I also would like to post my review here)

The concert I attended yesterday was definitely one of the best ones in my life! I was happy to be very close
to the stage, see all the band in details and sing along together with the people around me) The concert started nearly
on time which happens rarely here in St. Petersburg and lasted for about 2 hours. The band began with some old songs,
including my favourite 'Komet'and 'Schakal'.
Then the decorations were changed and the lights turned from blue to red
(very spectacular!). The band played some songs from the newer period, mostly from the latest album. Tilo also sang 'I lost my star' in Russian version, it was great x) To my surprise, they played 'Liebesspiel'
between the new songs. I adore this song, it was amazing to hear it live! And there was one more surprise (at
least for me)- Tilo played the guitar during some of the songs. Never seen that before)) After 'Revolution' the band pretended
to have finished. Some people believed it and I could get closer to the stage x) But actually they returned three times!

'Ich verlasse heut' dein Herz' and 'Der Morgen danach' were performed really emotionally and they were accepted by the public in the same way.
(I sang so loudly that I had sore throat after the gig, but hell, I couldn't behave in any other way when THAT was happening on
the stage!!!) In conclusion they played 'Feuer' and it was so energetic that the club seemed to be set on fire indeed! Then Tilo presented
their new drummer (a nice guy, I think he manages well). Then it was over(( Unfortunately, there was no autograph-session because the band were
rushing for the train to Moscow.

To sum up, all the musicians were 100% great, Tilo... I just can't find words to describe him. Well, I'm sure you
understand me. Anne also sang and played wonderfully, her words in 'Schakal' made all the people quiet for a minute, it sounded
really mystically! The guitars and the drums also were super, the brightest moment about them was the solo in 'Ich verlasse
heut' dein Herz', i guess.

Thank you very much, Lacrimosa!!! The further I listen to you the more I love you!

I just remembered one more thing I wanted to mention - I was very impressed with the performance of one of my favorite songs - Weil du hilfe brauchst, now searching videos to see it again! it was a very strong monologue!.....
Title: Antw:Revolution Tour Impressions
Post by: Asphodel on March 24, 2013, 13:06:11
Uff, I am kinda slow with my feedback this time... XD I was so overwhelmed by all the impressions and memories and quite tired from the road that it's just now that I find some strength for writing...

First of all, arriving to StPete I met a wonderful person - Anastassija whom I met for the first time in real life, but of course I knew her from the internet... I felt delighted to know this girl better now! We have spent a lot of time together while preparing for the concert! It's a pity that I didn't have much time to watch the wonderful city, but it was too cold for a comfortable walk anyway  ;D
At the venue there were so many familiar faces around, it was nice to meet many fellow people! I would like to name them all but I am afraid to forget anyone and that won't be nice XD
First we helped Olga to hang that posters which she had shown already, and then... suddenly the concert started! We didn't expect it to start so soon and from the balcony we saw that many people didn't either, because everyone rushed to the stage! I was interested to see the new drummer, I found that with him the sound became harder and for me it was a good thing for the live show! I had a great impression from Julien's performance. The concert gave me a couple of surprises - like Verloren, then Liebesspiel turning into Fassade, other reviewers already told you about it XD
Pity that there was no autograph session in Moscow and StPete, perhaps because the band's schedule was so tight with all the trains and flights. Anyway, we got what we came for - the music!
Then after having some sleep I went to Moscow with the morning high-speed train together with Galarina where I was an awful conversation partner because I slept the most part of the road...  ;D

After coming to Moscow the whole day was a complete rush, because the concert was on the very same evening and I had some problems with Friday traffic jams... But I managed it!
Moscow show was more crowded than StPete show, and many of my friends from StPete came along to this concert as well, just like I did. That concert was a bit longer compared to StPete one, the main surprise of the evening was the unplanned encore - Copycat, I mean it was really unplanned, Tilo even said sorry to technicians who already started to do their job because they thought that the concert was finished. The audience was so energetic, I can imagine why Tilo decided to play one more song!
At the balcony we had sitting places and it was a pity that the security guys prohibited us to stand up because it won't allow the people sitting behind us to watch the show (well, that's understandable, but it would be more fun the other way). But still when Feuer and Copycat was played we all jumped up!

Here is the setlist, plus add Copycat at the end:

Cool, thanks for the review and pic of the setlist! Nice to read you had a great time :) saw you met our dear Matze as well! A bit strange to sit during a concert, I can imagine your doubts with that... but that you had a great time is the most important thing I think :) hope you didn't get evil glances from security if you jumped up during those two songs? Thanks for sharing your impressions on the new drummer also, was very curious about that myself (didn't really manage to hear live-videos up till now, will try to do so as I'm very curious :D)

Yes, that's right, I've met Matze at the concerts to say hi, and yesterday I got the chance to show him the Red Square where we almost got frozen XD That "spring" is just something... He's such a nice guy, we've spent a great time together! :D
We actually didn't care if we get evil glances because it was the en of the show so what's the use of sitting us down if everything was almost finished? ;D

Julia great to read your review, i was waiting for it!  ;D Oh how i'd love to be there for that extra Copycat, and the energy of Moscow shows is always just overflowing  ;D
When reading, had a nostalgic feeling about my trips to Moscow, and I remember the strict Moscow security - maybe somewhere in some cases they are right to keep the discipline, though it might be a pity to sit all the time ))) With years, i can see that overall culture of concerts has improved with the security enforcement )))

hehe  ;D well, one one hand they are right and they make the people more disciplined, because if I was sitting on the back row I wouldn't have liked if some people didn't let me watch the show with their backs...  But on another hand sitting all the time is annoying XD

I think I will write a comprehensive (and if I would get them, with pictures) report tomorrow, when going back to Novosibirsk (around 25 hours by train....). But right now I have to say that the concert was stupendous, atmoshere was wonderful, and that Lacrimosa members are superheroes. I think I don't have enough energy to continue, sometimes helping others is a bit tiresome.
And I've been in the first row, that was a something...
IT WAS GREAT! Especially Der Morgen Danach, I laughed as a baby, for it's my fav for a long time))) It was so cool to sing it along with the band... I laughed so much, a concert can bring so much happiness, unbelievable....
And here I have to stop or I'm seriously getting into a mode where I can fall onto my keyboard...........

Nina I understand your joy about Der Morgen Danach, one of all-time favorites! I remember my first Lacrimosa concert in Moscow in 2008 when after I saw it live I thought I could die in peace then  :D And this year it seemed to me they performed it with double energy and passion ))) *may be it's the fault of my long-time concertless condition XD*

Now it's my turn :)

I won't relate my Yekaterinburg impressions, revelations and musings of life in general :) I'll get straight to the point of that impressive queue in front of Tele-club that was bending so far beyond the building that some sharp-tounge guys were asking people standing in the queue in the style people asked each other back in USSR for imported stuff (ex: what are you standing for? perfume from France). Thanks to an online aquintance of mine who came 1.5 h. earlier to the venue I and my new friend (whom I met at a hostel the night before) were able to jump up to the top of the queue. A half hour of waiting made me sharpen my tounge by cracking jokes (what else can be done when it's cold outside?), and then, finally, we got in. Then another queue, you know that boring stuff, so skip it)
Thanks to a friend of mine (my report, it seems, is going to be comprised of thanks) I got to the first line, right in front of the stage (and the iron grate, hehe...). Another one hour of waiting, which was now filled with people around being all nerves and flutter (and me stoic for the sheer inevitablility of everything, because an iron grate in front of me and people behind...well...).
And then, when I almost reached a meditation-like state, the magic began with Lacrimosa intro :) Relief and joy passed through the public and we were ready for the band to appear.
And guess, they appeared! People cheered, the crowd swayed...and then the set-list started, which was the same like in Saint-Pete and Moscow, I suppose. I got into a state close to trance so can hardly remember the songs, but boy, what a night that was! Full of drive :)

 But since I can't relate my experiences same vivid as I remember them, I'll describe the most bright moment for me - that was during Der Morgen Danach, which for many years was both my lulliby and morning alarm melody :) I was happy as a baby when Tilo started singing the song, it was such a joyous moment, a moment I was looking forward to from 2007, I think :) And then, while singing, Tilo came to our part of the stage, looked down upon us (might be that's the first and the last time when I can be happy with someone looking down upon me  ;D ;D ;D), singing along, and sat (squatted) in front of us. That was cool to be able to sing along with him my most beloved song (even though the iron grate in front of me was very welcoming my chest at that moment, for there were enough people wanting to be a bit closer), though I felt morose inside and could only clap clap clap clap (while other people were extending their hands, I guess they knew better what to do in such a situation).
Feuer was marvelous, while they played it (the drummer! you're wonderful! even I were able to appreciate how great you were! well, Henrik solo's were splendid, also!!! and...actually everyone played extra cool, sometimes twice XD Copycat was played twice XD), stop, Nina, no trailing off!!! Okay, so, Feuer was MARVELOUS, during it I mentally burned a whole city and a half of Arsches XD
Well, it was COOL, though I doubt I ever again would go to dance parter (the iron grate lovingly marked me with two large bruises, which are cool but somehow not very handy in day-to-day life - a bit hard to type XD), and it was such an experience that right after the concert I urgently needed some water and a quiet place to stand, I felt like being squeezed and walked as a drunkard :) so I didn't even actually wait till Henrik and another guitarist (throw your shoe at me, I can't recall his name!!! shame on me, shame on me) appeared. Some remark beforehand, so that my actions from now on would be clearly understood: despite my general chatterbox behavior I'm extremely shy. Now let's go to the actual events....
After the crowd in front of Henrik finally changed its density from "over50000" to "several people wanting to take a pic" I dared asking him to take a picture with me (think that was easy, ha?!), so that's the first "somber" try:
(http://sphotos-a.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/1815_10200848288395289_157464641_n.jpg)
Henrik the Nicest asked whether the pic was cool enough, and if no, that we shall take another one. So I looked at it and...yeah, I said.
(the following conversation ran something like this)
Henrik: Now, what shall we do on that one, then?..
I: Well, (here I thought of making some horns) I can be REALLY HORNY!
Henrik: WHAAAA?! Unexpected!
(http://sphotos-g.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/253645_10200848288635295_1340461632_n.jpg)
I: darn, I didn't mean THAT! Jeeez, now I'm blushing!!! What the...
Henrik: I'll keep that in mind! 
I: noooooooooo....
Then we decided to take another one (and, as a very boring person, I didn't know what to do, so gladly accepted an advice of people waiting for their turn to make horns...look for them and you'll find them)
(http://sphotos-h.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/156004_10200848288755298_1416486880_n.jpg)
Then, and I remind you, I was very wobbly, we decided to stay a bit longer (though one of us wanted to leave, but my wobbliness persuaded her to give us a chance), while another friend of mine, desperately wanting to give Tilo her gift, an Altayan musical instrument called vargan (Jew's harp, don't ask me why it's called this way) :) was almost chewing my nerves off with her dispair of Tilo not showing up (and her train back to her city approaching) :) and then, finally, Tilo appeared. UND DIE SCHLACHT BEGINNT, thought I, watching how the people, in one unified feeling, ran towards him. If he was even 5 cm shorter he would have been completely hidden from my sight (but those 5 cm and white stripe of hair were great indicators that he is, so far, surviving. Mainly, I suppose, thanks to that iron grate I hated so much before, so in that moment it was forgiven. ;) )
After some time which I spent dancing and singing a bit (for they there was some Lacrimosa music playing), completely alone, my friends re-appeared from the crowd, clutching autographs (to me it looked like they returned from the Beyond or something equally scary). But the gift wasn't yet given, and the pictures weren't yet taken! So we waited some more (I've promised to be an interpreter, which ended to be real fun, my crowd-fear excl.). So, when the density changed from that same over500000000000000000 to the "just three rows" my friend dragged me into it (to the same much beloved iron grate, I shall marry it, after all, it seems to be Fate!). And there we stood, waiting for Tilo passing by (and he successfully avoided us 3 times in a row, so that I had to console my friend that feared she was going to end up being ignored and unable to give her present. I told her Tilo was too kind to let that thing happen, or something like that. She believed. I wouldn't XD). But finally Tilo reached us.
Well, now we remember that I'm shy :) So when Tilo looked with that questioning yet kind expression of his, I was able to stammer something like the following:
Me: Hi... I know that you are reluctant at receiving gifts, but my friend wants to give you an instrument to your collection. (after a pause) a musical instrument.
Tilo: Oh?
Me: yeah (my friend produces a vargan and gives it to Tilo) It's an Altayan vargan. D'ye know what that is? It's an instrument you have to put to your teeth...
Tilo: Oh! That's a mouth (something I forgot), I used to have one when was a child!
Me: Well.... now you have another one :)
Tilo (smiling): Yes, I do! Thanks!
Me: Well, it's not my gift, but my friend's :)
Then my friend wanted to take a picture with Tilo, to which he consented (and a girl to the right of me whom I saw for the first time in my life asked the same thing), so I even said that I'm taking so many pictures today that even might become a good photographer, to which Tilo said "Well, you might!" (which I consider to be impossible, for I'm no Klodi and have no patience with lenses). I remember that this clearly because taking a picture in a crowd is a bit tricky...these are the pictures taken:
(http://sphotos-a.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/426379_10200848422198634_1996745705_n.jpg)
(with my friend the gifter)
(http://sphotos-g.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/480604_10200848416958503_1911574504_n.jpg)
(http://sphotos-f.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/388528_10200848417078506_2140392388_n.jpg)
(with that other girl)
After some time I dared to approach for a picture with my humble self, but I didn't like myself on that one so much that this one will stay away from anyone except my closest friends (I wanted to say that it would die with me, but I hope to outlive hard drive formatting) ;)
And that was all, for after that we went away (and I finally was able to return back to my senses, at least partially). I didn't expect the concert to hit me so, can't figure it out still. Nonetheless, I'm happy that I visited that city and, of course, the concert! It was well worth my 20+ hours trip by train from Novosibirsk to Yekaterinburg :)
SO, I do strongly recommend going to a Lacrimosa concert to experince the ENERGY :) Das ist unsere Revolution, after all! ;)
P.S. But beware iron grates! ;)

The second Moscow show was even cooler compared with the previous concerts of the tour for me (Moscow and StPete), despite that the venue was smaller. The hall was completely sold out and there was no empty place at all! The energy of the concert was just crazy in the best sense of this word, the audience greeted each song with such enthusiasm, and the band was enjoying the show too! Now I am craving for more concerts but I don't know when I will have another chance to go!..
The setlist was alike to those of the previous Russian shows but they finally played Lichtgestalt, it was crossed out on the previous setlists!
And this time we had the chance to stand up on our balcony so it was totally an awesome time for me!
By no means I can say that concerts in StPete and Moscow were bad - no, they were excellent, but this one totally impressed me! And it was so awesome to see the musicians happy - their good mood was obviously seen!

Everyone seemed enjoy the show and I saw tilo had big smiles all the way through the concert, so glad he enjoyed it as well!

Here comes my impressions from the concert on April 13!! ;D ;D I arrived DF on Saturday at 11 am with my family, hours later I arrived to tha auditorium and I was trying to find some of you but I couldn't! D: so I was with my dad and one friend in the line to enter almost 2 hours. When we finally came in, we were almost on the front but then the people started to push me, so after almost dying smashed ::), the concert began with the wonderful "Brennende Komet"  ;D ;D ;D then I breathed, recovered strength and started to sing!! I enjoyed and loved so much each song, the show was amazing! Tilo and Anne were he most kind people of the world and their voices were WONDERFUL! I was very impressed and glad for this, my first Lacri-Concert was a wonderful experience! ;D
At the middle of the concert, more or less, I saw Mario!! Dear, it was so nice to meet you ;D Tilo told us the story of the wedding and the wine, and he told thatconcert was the number 50 at México! :o *proud* ;D Almost at the end Tilo sent us kisses :3 such a tenderness!!!!!
I was filming the concert (in a bad quality, I think because I was moving too much :P) I filmed a few songs, but then the battery of my camera died :-\ and I couldn't stay for the last 3 songs!! because my dad thought that the concert was over, we were trying to tell him that wasn't true, but he told us that it was time to go becuase it was too night and dangerous and blah blah blah :'( :'( i was so sad about that :( But I have to thank I have the opportunity to attend that beautiful concert!  :) So I'm ready for the next Lacri-tour!! ^^

Impressions from Guadalajara Mexico 2013

First of all, this is my first post here in Lacrimosa forum; my name is James, I'm from Mexico (Celaya Guanajuato) and I'm a medicine student; friday we leaved my birth place and travel to Guadalajara (3 hours more than less), we arrive Guadalajara at 6 o clock and we wait until 8th o clock to enter the Teatro Diana... Inside we and my girlfriend take somo photos and videos and wait until the concer began... Yeah Lacrimosa theme sounds and the crowd entirely seems to fall down, later Komet-Schakal-Alleine zu zweit-Alles luge; a great variety... Feuerzug was wonderful, that way to play the piano is AWESOME... Finally the first encore happen; all the crowd scream "LACRIMOSA LACRIMOSA LACRIMOSA" and the band went again to the stage... Durch nacht and Stolzes were played and second encore happens... The final come back of the band was for play copycat... The show finally finish... Or not?? At the end we and a "Little bit" group of almost 200 people went to left side of the teathre where it were the "Artist door" Almost 11 o clock the band begun to get out: First Henrik, later Yenz and finally JP (I never saw Julien :() But Tilo and Anne???... Almost 12.30 people scream louder and we knew... Tilo was coming; the security staff helped them (Tilo and Anne) to got on their van, the manager told us that if we were in order Tilo was available to take some photos or sign autographs... And there was the van door open (Fortunately I was there in the first lane) and I saw him; was incredible... I only had the time to say "You are the best man, I love you" and touch his shoulder, but I never forget his short answer "Thank you" It was wonderfull... Finally the crowd pushed and pushed, and the manager said "This is crazy, let's go" and the van took his way... This is my impressions for that magickal night!! Greetings to everybody...

Ok so here is mine, after 3 days iam still über happy, let me tell you my story.
It was like a couple of months i have bought the tickets for the concert snd as you know the nerves and everything grow stronger as the date came closer. So finally the most expected day so far this year. Friday i missed school i was getting ready, look for my outfit and my beloved boots were missing :( i could not find them anywhere and i was a little bit dissapointed but didnt matter lol. So i arrived at the venue some hours earlier, chatted with some friends and i was trying to buy a t shirt and some lacri things but for my surprise i had not enough money :(... Also one thing that i absolutely didnt like was that the guys that are the "sponsors" for the gigs in Mexico sold tickets for the Meet and Greet and they were quite expensive, it was a shame cause i knew that this time i wasnt going to be able to be just a little time with them, but soon that feeling went away.
The lights in the hall went down and lacrimosa theme was in the background, chills went down my spine, i was high on euphoria :), next "ich bin der brennende" i just couldnt stop jumping, more songs played, Tilo connected to the audience and Anne had a big smile on her Face. Henrik was drinking some "iced Coronas" a mexican beer he likes a lot, Yenz fully concentrate on his bass, JP a little bit far but enjoying, and Julian his face looked astonished he was following Tilo with his lips and looking every corner of the hall. It was amazing... Anne's keyboard failed during "Alles Luge" for a moment in thought she was about to break down cause she looked worried, the entire song didnt worked but she looked very professional and it was like it never happen. The Tilo spoke, they crowd was cheering him so loud he had to stop and blushes, and as some of you couldnt understand some of what he said lol, the revolution song were played, "irgendein
Arsch..." Tilo removed his earphone to hear all the venue singing and smiled. Feuerzug: oh my God what an intense way of playing the piano!! Tilo semeed to enjoy it so much..i could write about every move in every song but i will keep it short :p. So the show came to the end and everybody got out, i was stunned and head back home, revies some of my photos and realized they were horrible :( not a single one was perfect.... Anyway so the day after i had to go to my german classes, but in the way i passed near the hotel were they stayed so i say to my self, lets try your luck, i wasnt even sure they were there, i was riding my bike so i sat in a bench near the entrance, and i waited for about 10 mins when i saw Jp, i was so happy so i ran and talked to him, thanked him about the night before, the gig, we chat a little bit and he webt inside the van, then Tilo came out of the hotel and asked him if i could take a picture with him, i knew they were in a hurry cause they were supossed to fly to mexico city, but he kindly agreed and even asked one of his crew members to take the picture, Anne was alredy in the van so i didnt had the chance to take a photo with here or with any other of the band. And they were gone but i was extremely happy. Soon ill post my photos and videos =]

Hi!

A few weeks later I write from the concert in Kiev. Im Balazs from Budapest, Hungary, and Im sorry for my bad english. I went to the concert in Kiev in the end of marc, becouse Lacrimosa never play in Hungary, and i like Kiev. I went by plane at the same day of the show, and i come home the day after. There was very cold, rainy in Kiev, with a half meter of snow. My hotel room was five minute walking distance from the Bingo Klub, so I start 5 minute before 8p.m, by which time the show beginning was write. When i arrived to the club, i started to talk with an ukrainan guy.  We go to the club, i give my coat to te coatroom,  and I noticed that, i lost my ticket! I recived my coat, and rush back to the hotel. In the half way i find my ticket in the snow. It was fully wet, and break away. It was an e-ticket, so i try it to print again in my hotel. The hotel was no printer! Some minutes later, i can dry my ticket, and photocopied. With the copy i rush back to the club, I can go to the concert. Actually they played the song Verloren. So, I lost the first part, with the old songs…
Anyway, the show was great, buti t was not enough people, becouse the price of the ticket was very high. There was 3 encore, and i see  1 and ¾ hour of the show. The sound was satisfactory, but nothing extra.
In total, my first Lacrimosa show was great, but becouse Im stupid, I need to go an other Lacri concert, what I will see full time.

Oh man, that was terrible... The good thing is you saw more the half gig... It's very interesting how different cultures lives the gig atmosphere... Here in Latin America the people begin arrive to the concert 3 -4 hours before it begins!!! Good impression!

In Budapest if a the start of the show was wrote to 8 pm, you be sure, it never will start before 10 pm. :-) Because this, i was calm. It seems, in Ukraine the 8pm is 8 pm, not as in Hungary.

I was alone, so I dont want to wait and boring to lot before the concert.

@Balazs: such a bad story u tell! :( But well, you finally had the enough courage to not give up and could see the most part of the concert :) I am glad for this ^^

In Mexico you are great fans! I assume the concerts there must be so intense experiences! I would like to visit one somewhen ;) Here in Spain there are not that many fans of Lacrimosa, but there are also people that go early to the venue the day of a concert: in Madrid there were people since 9 am, me arriving at 10 am (the concert starting at 9-9.30 pm) and in Barcelona I arrived at about noon (and I was alone xDD) and between 3-4 pm people started to come (the concert starting at about 9 pm too)  :D

Actually I think both of us (Spanish and Mexican people) are very similars in our behaviour... I think we are very passional, dedicated and obstinated. Yes, maybe as you said, the gigs here are very intense (I think mainly by the number of people) but IdK what's would be de difference between gigs in Spain and gigs in Mexico... By the way here the atmosphere is wonderful, you know, the crowd is singing and screaming all the gig and uff it's wonderful!!! :D

I must say one important thing... I am sure there are more order in any "European" gig than whit a Mexican crowd... :8

I agree in that; passional, dedicated and obstinated: you could have not said better words!! :D I guess the difference is the amount of people, because the ambience here is quite intense. Actually even Tilo remarked it as far as I know ;). If there were more fans of Lacrimosa here, the concerts would be more crazy I assume...On the other hand, I have experienced this more intenseness in bands that have more fans here, for example, Rammstein: the concert was pure intenseness, craziness and passion by the fans ;) Anyway, I dream of visiting a Lacrimosa concert in Mexico ^^

not so lofty topic, but I'm interested in: where how much was the fare of the ticket?

Malina: My another plan was, I go to the concert in Barcelona in the winter this year, but my work did not allow that.

Post by: LUSha on April 18, 2013, 09:22:43
So here comes my belated report.

I have been in Germany for my own plan for quite a while but still when i see Lacrimosa tour confirmed in China, I decide to fly back. So at the beginning my boyfriend and i planned this trip together and i bought concert tickets online already before i left, but because of some problem unfortunately I had to go alone, so anyways. Before i leave i knew this trip will be worth of it, after that only proves it's more than worth of it, it brings me so much joy, emotions and feelings of love, and people i met they gave me much energy, therefore I'm very grateful.

01/04/2013 Frankfurt - Beijing
    02/04/2013 April Beijing Tango club


About 10 hours flight and i arrive in Beijing early at 5 am on 2nd of April.(I hate food on Airchina!)
Then i need to immediately work with another guy so i left directly from hotel around 9 am to his company, then till afternoon..

Around 3.30 or 4 pm the band start rehearsal, and show starts on time. So there we have our old friends again, JP, Henrik, Yenz, Joerg, really cheers me up to see them again and of course Matze! ;D so very nice to see you in China. Everyone meets everyone and everyone hugs everyone, and i like that it releases lots of my stress you know.

*starts the drummerfancying session* And our new friend..like many others, I like Julien very much!
Because before that I had (out of no reason) some prejudgements cause he looks so young that i thought he's some kind of innocent boy there doesn't have much experience (sorry  XDD) and it turned out totally opposite! I find out his performance totally outstanding that overthrows my prejudgement, besides that
he got style and skills, also very smart and his interpretation of music is simply just......I don't know how to
express it, just feel right, very powerful and meanwhile remain very delicate and precise....that's just how i feel...
and not to say i think he loos better than the photo...(my friend was against that XD) --->

*ends of drummerfancying session*

When there's one month left i start a "Lacrimosa china tour countdown" event on chinese weibo, counting down from 30 days, 20 days, 10 days so on....and each time, i can just feel directly from internet how people's anxiety grows expands and on the edge of explosion, on the last day of countdown it got so intense, and that excites me too (you weirdo!) I really enjoyed it!
But until in Beijing, at live, when i feel it from the venue it is another different feeling of a very strong
engery flow, that does exist! Right before intro starts the crowds already start screaming, screaming Lacrimosa and Tilo. in Beijing, people were just crazy from the very beginning, it's extremely crowded...actually if people leave some space they could stand at easy and fill up the venue, but now all of them just squeeze to front like in a can (this is opposite to Shanghai) it's also very interesting to notice because the craziest and most aggressive guy at live, could be very shy and backwarded after the show at signing session.
So we start with Komet, there were too many people in front and i wasn't able to get close to stage, so i went to second floor, from there i felt the power and energy of crowds, they were on fire, steaming up!
But then on second floor i don't really like it cause i want to feel something in there, so i was running down
again(kept on moving around during the show), but on second floor i have better views and whole crowds lit on fire down there.

And Liebesspiel/Fassade3 it really really got me....! As the song starts, I was there in middle of crowds, and this music so powerfully and overwhelmingly hammering down on my head, and then over my whole body, then the whole part of me gradually getting peeled off from inside out, and heated up...I cannot move nor talk, I can do nothing else but standing there, it was so emotional and so strong, that i got extremely emotional at this song.

Encore, if i remember correctly it's 4 times of encore(one more than Shanghai), Der Morgan danach seems to be the most "singable" song that everyone could sing along, (consider quite some people could not handle even english) amazing! And the very last time they really seem to be off stage and finish concert and i heard
"background music"(which is a sign of concert end) starts but the crowds were so persistant, no one leaves....then Tilo came out, with a big smile and said...you are amazing...he and Anne then blowing kisses to the audience.

4th April Beijing-Shanghai Mao Live
My flight leaves (again) early in morning to Shanghai (I hate food on Airchina), so i arrive in Shanghai around 9.30,
Then i met another girl Jun in Shanghai, who i knew for quite some long time ...around 2003 or 2004 because of
Lacrimosa, but didn't meet in person so often, who created the very first Lacrimosa Chinese fansite and did a lot for us, and now she's a bit of typical Otaku type XD I'm really happy I can work with her a bit cause i really like her as she's cool and cute, always got this expressionless look on her face but her funny comments could make me laugh my arsch off...so we cooperated together till later again in afternoon.
It took a bit longer time for the sound check than in Beijing, but audience in Shanghai are somehow shy, btw have to mention gothic scene in Shanghai is bigger than Beijing, there're some gothic themed clubs and parties
Beijing is a bit more of "metal type" 
So nobody shouting out or scream like in Beijing, people are shy and quiet even when it's a bit later than opening, some fans in front have tried and gave up, and then Lacrimosa went on stage and Komet starts...
Shanghai..is interesting, i had the feeling that people "wait" till Lichtgestalt and suddenly all of them
break out, yes, one can easily feel it, probably this old song has brought back memories in 2009 or out of no reason, noone remains shy and all went totally crazy with this song and even crazier than in Bejing, there last till the end.
After that it's VIP session, i quite like it, it's in a lounge next to venue and everything so queit, cozy, neat..
I can't hear what other fans talking about but I really love their faces, full of happiness and love but not
stressed at all ;) I love that gentle and cozy feeling

Laters we had chance sitting together and chat with Tilo and Anne, and they asked how i met
Jun and such. And incredibly(?) I find Tilo so very intelligent (as if i didn't think so?;) and his brain could receive so much and react so fast that i still have to wow at it. Anne's such a caring woman and even during chat, she remember she promised a fan who asked for signature previously outside the venue..which i find symphsich..

And then, off the S. Korea, before that we had a bit worry because of the situation in N.Korea,
looks like they survived good ;)

Oh and i took some rest the next day and met my friend in Shanghai we had suuuch great time, hanging out and tried local food and super yummy sushi(and the price!...compared with Duesseldorf!)....then took a long walk in the Bund, night views of Shanghai's much more beautiful than it was my memory.

And then..I took a very short trip back to my hometown(quickly kissed everyone--my mom, dad grandparents, friends XD and quicky spread out my presents to them(not easy to carry them all the way from Germany to Beijing to Shanghai and to Chengdu! XDD

Oh and btw there in my hometown i had fun with live version of Takagism for the first time...that's really cool!
And it's in a big music theme park, my friends and i talked several times to sneak Lacrimosa there to perform because the venue and facilities are amazing, live house is no worse than Beijing and shanghai,
unfortunately we asked rock organizers in Chengdu several times (already asked them back in 2006, and this year asked again) that they were not able to support such event, still a problem of market, so, it's a pity only two concerts in two cities in China--a huge country! But I believe with time everything will change, for the good.

Promotion:
Talking about govenment...like i previously posted...I'm surprised to find out on the "mainstream voice" ....websites of the official channel...(CCTV english and Xinhua news agency)
They published Lacrimosa's concert! That look really a bit disharmony(if you look at that big government logo on top) but good! As I never seen that before...previously there were so many concerts with Lamb of God, ,Arch Enemy, none of them were published on government sites.....but just Lacrimosa.
Not only that...till very last day still beijing media find us and want to do report...

Now i write this when I'm back, so...unbelievable memories.

So very nice to read everyone's reports of your various experiences, thank you so much :)

Balazs, I believe that the main thing was to experienced some Lacrimosa, and anyway none ever feels like they had enough of it even when they see 3h of it! ^^

Sha, particular thanks for the length and also the many good pics there, I especially enjoyed seeing audience and stage in the same pic, and also BIG smiles and REAL expressions of peaceful bliss/blissful peace? on musicians' faces, not just Tilo and Anne!! So nice to see them enjoying it so much too :)

I'd like to share my impressions aboyt the tour, these were my 4th and 5th concerts. I've already been in the first rows (in 2010 i was in the first one <3) but i'm too damn short and it's  worse for me, so when i heard they were comming again, i thought 'well, i have already been in the hot zone, dancing, screaming, crushed, so this time i want to go just to listen to the music and watch them from afar' and so i did and this time i didn't arrive to the venue at 6am like years before; i arrived around 6:00 and i was way in the back, but since the venue is quite small, it was a pretty good spot.
The concert began soon and when the first notes started to play, everything went craaazy!
I forgot my plan of just enjoy listening and watching the performance (which of coruse was totally awesome) and i started screaming, jumping, and lose control, hahaha.
I can't even start to describe the atmosphere, the energy from the band, the energy from the audience. The gig was amazing, i had so much fun, it was so vibrant, so powerfull.
I must say that this concert was april 14th and i just had that ticket, but in the middle of the show i though: i HAVE to come tomorrow, i HAVE to experience this again. And so i did :)
I skipped classes to go buy my ticket and later to go to the concert, and the venue was almost empty when i arrived, it wass less crowded than the night before (and i was closer to the stage, hehe) so i thought it would be less 'energetic' and i think it was, but it was allso mor 'intimate' and it was also pretty cool.
So, i loooved it, lo loved this tour and i've been a little bit depressed (hehe, ok, not like suicidal depressed) over two weeks, i want MORE! :( gonna miss it so much...but it will always be in my mind :D

*i apologyze if there are any typos, i'm writing in a tablet and my fingers are fat and clumsy, besides, something is wrong with my hand, it hurts a lot. LOL i'll review this later*

If I could only pour my heart out, just plain simply leave it there to show you guys how amazingly important this experience was for me! There are only words, however, to describe such an unbelievable display of artistry and passion.

*about some unimportant problems at first*
Ok... so we are here in Quito, where one can have a demolishing rain and an impossible sun 'storm' on the very same day. It was very sunny the first hours of the day, and then it poured from 2 pm until just a few minutes before the concert started (We joked saying that Lacrimosa stopped the rain for us ;) ). We waited in line, under the rain, with no roof because the concert was in a parking lot. The bodyguards harassed us all afternoon, talking about how we were very 'dangerous', how they had to be 'protected against our disturbances', etc. We couldn't sit, we had to stay in a very narrow space and anyone who crossed the divisory line was 'gently' asked to return to 'our place'. At 6 pm we were told that we had to form a new line, with ladies in one row and boys in another. As you can well imagine, total chaos was unleashed. People stepped on other people, there were fights and lots of violence from these so called body-guards.
ANYWAY... I was lucky enough to find a spot on the very first row. Since men and women were separated, I had to wait for my boyfriend and other friends and by then there was no more space on the first row, but they got to the second and third rows, which was still very nice :) (I am also very small, pichirova, and I really really needed to be in the first row because otherwise I wouldn't have been able to see anything ;) )

*ABOUT THE MAGIC*
And it starts. The band that preceded Lacrimosa was pretty cool. A bit of goth, a bit of metal... It was pretty interesting.
Suddenly, people start screaming: Tilo and Anne wave from the side of the scenario, because the spot was sadly in the middle of nowhere and they had no other choice but to go down from the hill that was right behind us. My God! Tilo actually looked like a magic-light-creature in the middle of all the darkness and the shrubbery!
The first song was Ich bin der brennende Komet and it was total passion. People started singing along, jumping around, screaming euphorically (haha... me included). Then Tilo says hello, Anne appears –majestically, as usual- and Yenz starts marauding on his bass, making it scream. Oh! Such force!
Even if I tried to properly enlist the songs that were played, I couldn’t. I was in a fever, shaking, screaming, ripping out all the ‘sanity’, all the ‘proper standards’ that I’d let imprison me for so long. I was finding my warm, primitive, childish soul and Tilo was there to help me do so. He held his emotions in front of us, so fragile and strong at the same time, so otherworldly and pure. Every note perfectly encompassed, tied in with his whole body and his expressions. Anne’s voice like a mermaid’s and the whole band just gracing us with clean cut fire! There were Der Morgen danach, Alles Lüge (Dear God, how is it possible to be so universally right when describing the desolation lying leaves?), Not every pain hurts, Schakal (By this time I was completely out of myself, really feeling the angel carry his heart -Tilo’s brittle, beautiful heart- away) and so many more, each and every single one almost perfect.
 And then came Stolzes Herz and it was like the recreation of the times it saved me from drowning. I was by myself, fighting against my terrible demons, surrounded by desperation like broken glass cutting through my skin, when Tilo started caressing the first lines, transforming the abysm into an empowering force, and me into a freshly born fighter. Tears, that so rarely come to my rescue, came to purify me. Tears of a welcoming new life, tears to celebrate the awakening of my true soul! I will never forget that feeling! To be protected and encouraged by another soul that strives but succeeds, by this mythical, old soul that has never surrendered even when it’s been so deeply wounded! Oh Lacrimosa!!! Oh Life!!!!
After this came the songs from Revolution. I must admit I hadn’t had the strength to fully analyze them, so it was like hearing them for the first time and it was also like receiving a brand new gift (exactly like Tilo’s said in some interviews). The interpretation was so sincere that I felt like I was experiencing the very creation of them. Tilo and Anne were so honest, so strong I couldn’t believe it! And the piano!!! Is it really possible?! (I just kept repeating: “Thank you, thank you!”). The metaphor for Revolution really left me amazed, the story moved my heart!
They said thank you, we screamed, we thanked them, we jumped, we called for them. They left. They came back. Not one but three times! And every time it was a present. A ball of fire to keep us going!
Once the concert was over, it started pouring again! We had to move to the disco for the after party but there were no cars in the middle of the woods, so we had to walk down the hill and wait again under the rain. No bodyguards this time, so everything was better. Although there were lots of police cars and sirens, we didn’t care.
Yenz, Julien, and Jay were waiting inside the car while Henrik was right in front of the door of the disco. They let us take pictures and they were completely understanding with our euphoria!  We were out of our minds! We got in the disco and the rumor that Tilo and Anne were already in there was widely spread. We waited outside the door of the changing room for almost 30 minutes and they didn’t come out. Then, a voice says that they are on the stage of the disco, and again, chaos occurred. The new bodyguards pushed people away, almost got us out, one of them made Anne pour her drink on the floor (I almost punched that guy in the face –haha, violent me-!  But Anne was such an understanding lady!), there was a bit of screaming from us. Anne shouted in Spanish “¡Silencio por favor!”--- What a sweet and yet incredibly strong voice she has!. After all that Tilo said no pictures, no autographs, just dancing and partying :) :) :)
Anne was a complete delight to be near to. She danced with such fire! She was so perfectly free! She was so filled with life!. Again magically, authentically. Meanwhile, Tilo came out a couple of times, had a beer or two and just waited. I recognized some animal force in him. Like a quiet owl, persistently shining amidst the shadows, being one with his own secret of perennial wisdom!
In a moment of shear courage, I dared to approach him and he let me talk to him. I babbled like a baby, so out of control of myself, and yet so at peace because he was there. I will never forget such an impressive kind heart! Such an empathetic spirit! Oh Mercy! I wish I can one day evolve to be as enlightened as he is! He hugged me and I felt this temple all around me, I can barely describe how immense his understanding was to me. Among other things, he said “don’t be sad”. I shall not.
Anne gave me a wonderful hug too! And I got to tell her how beautiful I think she is! :) :) :)
The rest of the night was filled with energy. The kisses, as strong as life itself! Magic. Magic. Life couldn’t have been better. My spirit still awaits my commitment to life in order to live something like this again. I will. I promise.
God bless Lacrimosa!

PS: Sorry for the long rantings. I just had to share my impressions from my second concert :)

Excellent review Keineangst I'm totally agree with you about Tilo and Anne's descriptions, being with them is such a spiritual, strong and wonderful experience, Tilo's hugs, Anne's glances.. Their smell, everything, they're like some kind of magic creatures. I'm so glad you also could live this wonderful experience  :)

:) :) Thank you NuWoLa! I hope we get to live something like this some more times! (In which I hope to have grown wiser in order to control myself and present my love to them a lot better *fingers crossed*)
I am so glad you mentioned their wonderful smell! Especially Tilo's! I couldn't believe how nature-like he smelled. I was just shocked because I've only smelled something like that in the middle of the Amazonas jungle, with the lights off and two big shining eyes of some creature staring at me. Wow... Tilo is a truly a Lichtgestalt!

Wonderful Review Keineangst nice to read you had such deep and intense experiences :) I found it curious (but beautiful in a way!) how you said "he let me talk to him" :) because in one it expresses the admiration you seem to have towards him and on the other hand stresses his big capacity to listen with heart and soul to someone when he's giving his focus to someone :) very very beautiful expression that caught my eyes right away (even before I read the complete review) And the magic of how one can be so full of fire and so at peace at the same time when he's around sounds familiar...describes his charisma very well. Thanks for sharing with us!

I know... I should be writing my review. It's just that I don't know how to make justice to that awesome experience. Give me a few days, and you'll enjoy my review. It's a promise. And I never make those.

It's amazing to watch The reactivan of fans in differents countries of The world... I think The difference ( and I've talked about it with Lady Malina) is, we in América, are more passional than crowd in Europe or in Asia... Anyway I think The main factor is we are more in number. I have no doubt that american, European or Asian crowd, we Love The same kind The band, and that,s The most important thing..,.

I knew I said that 'in a couple of days' I'd have my review ready.
Well, it was ready, but in spanish. Anyone wants to translate it?  :P I still have to write it on pc, because it's written in a little notebook, the same little notebook that suffered a cocoa accident a few weeks ago.

Well if none else is interested I don't mind doing it, though I guess one of our native Spanish-speaking members, or even better, Christina Malina, would be the best choice, seeing she's studying translation :) as I've said before, my Spanish is not what it used to be ^^
