Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls – Be More Kind Tour (Sporthalle, Hamburg)

"Because there's no such thing as rock stars, they're just people who play music..." In spring 2011 I went to see Social Distortion at the last of four gigs in a row they played at the Docks club in Hamburg. Nothing memorable about their show for me... I enjoyed it I think. The support act … Continue reading Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls – Be More Kind Tour (Sporthalle, Hamburg)

Demonical, LIK, Of Fire – Carnage Manifesto Tour (Bambi Galore, Hamburg)

Billstedt, in the east of Hamburg. You couldn't be further away from the many hotspots of nightlife and live music this city is famous for.

When Avatar announced their tour in support of the new album Avatar Country, it was out of question for me that I would try to go to as many shows as possible. Too vivid were the memories of the last tour in late 2016, when Avatar … Continue reading Avatar – Avatar Country World Tour (Sint-Niklaas, Cologne, Madrid, Barcelona, Munich, Prague, Berlin, Hamburg, Gothenburg)

Franz Ferdinand, Hamburg 2018

Franz Ferdinand – Always Ascending (Mehr! Theater Hamburg, De Oosterpoort Groningen)

I don't like listening to the same kind of music over and over again. Especially I don't need tons of bands that all sound more or less the same. On the contrary, I'm always searching for new sounds and things I haven't heard before, bands that surprise and impress me. Which gets difficult after a … Continue reading Franz Ferdinand – Always Ascending (Mehr! Theater Hamburg, De Oosterpoort Groningen)
