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!!!

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 :-\

"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.....

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. 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.

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 ;)

"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!!!

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

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:)

Ok, I will do it right away :D

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!!!

Alex Neverhood

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

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.


 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  :)

seen this only now  :o you were standing right next to Tina [the Lacrigirl], i met her in Berlin and Zürich  :)  and you both ofcourse look great  :)


edit:

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.


amen ... *memories*

by the way, i uploaded 2 videos on my facebook  ;)

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

Lacrima mosanium!

"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"

 
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...

Lacrima mosanium
Yes, it's a pity... we could tell each other so much interesting and become friends... Time can not move back anyway :(  I sent links for video to you, Lacrima mosanium, so keep the memories of unfulfilled aquaintance of us. :(
