DP in Braunschweig (Germany), Stadthalle on 23.09.96
Again a suupeeerb show! The setlist wasn't changed except swapping the order of No One Came and Rosa's Cantina - IG announced RC, all looked astouned, JL started, then stopped again and then they played it.
But it all started as usual with
- Fireball - awful sound but got better afterwards. At last IG was clearly audible!
- Ted - better sound.
- Pictures OH - '...contents of Rogers pockets..'
- Black Night - with long guitar solo
- Cascades - ending with a very Morseish guitar solo, simply astounding
- SIFLS - my fave of _|_
- WFT - good instrumentals
- The Aviator - long awaited but then ... the bass way too loud killed the song. '..again this is not what it seems to be, not a song about a pilot, but about a man taking a drink'.
- Rosa's - found myself singing it since then
- SOTW - long organ solo with Vivaldi: Spring (from 4 Seasons) and some stuff I didn't know. Jon was great.
- WABMC - awesome
- Speed King - '...lullaby from...' with drum solo
- PS - good
- Hey Cisco - Speed Metal version
- Highway Star - a perfect ending
IG's voice was better than a long time ago. He did some SKOW-like guitar-sing-along during two songs. Steve plays the old stuff with even different; but he didn't smile THAT much during the show. JL - the sleeping princess has been awakened!!! Paice and Roger giving it all. Just, the audience was a little bit cold, especially during the _|_-songs.
