Out of 201 days should 927 will. A virus called Corona, which was still new at the time, spoiled my anticipation. And: It wasn’t just the grunge legends from Seattle that were on my list back then, I also wanted to see Kiss on their farewell tour. Likewise Guns N’ Roses, Die Toten Hosen and Iron Maiden. Everything has been postponed. Now, in summer 2000, Corona is still an issue. And yet all appointments will be made up for.
While Organizers and bookers complain that far too few people come to smaller or medium-sized concerts, and that the major events are often sold out. But can we still do that? Live music before up to 58.000 viewers ? And: In view of the current infection numbers, isn’t the fear of infection still clouding the mood?
By the way, my last concert was also half an eternity ago: Before 846 days Liam Gallagher played in the Alsterdorfer Sporthalle. The former Oasis singer stopped the concert after just five songs because of his weakening voice. It could only get better.
Kiss, 13. June – Barclaycard Arena Hamburg
As a long-time fan of the band, I knew what to expect: An impressive fire show, Gene Simmons spitting blood and a set list that will not be shaken
