Editors @ Postbahnhof, Berlin 24.06.2013

Awesome, overwhelming, fantastic…there are no words to describe their show from last night. This was simply perfection. Just 300 people in a little club. Everyone of them excited to see the Editors and listen to new tracks, as well as good old classics.

The new songs were great. “Sugar”“A Ton Of Love”“Nothing” (played in an acoustic version), “Two Hearted Spider”“Honesty”,…

The well known tracks were stunning too. “Bones”, “An End Has A Start”, “Eat Raw Meet – Blood Drool”, “Papillon”, “Smokers Outside The Hospital Doors”, “Racing Rats”,…

With their new album “The Weight Of Your Love” coming out friday, the Editors are well prepared for more great concerts. After some festival gigs, the band will be on tour later this year. Go and get a ticket, as this band is a must see! You can watch the whole gig via Tape TV. Just click on the link. Scroll down for some pics I was able to take.

Ben Howard @ Zitadelle Spandau, Berlin 19.06.2013

33 °C,  sunshine, a superb open air location and Ben Howard on stage. Sounds like a sureshot, doesn’t it? Well, let’s see…

First of all I’ve to say, it was a nice concert, but not a gig for the ages. We arrived at the Zitadelle about 19:15, when the support act John Smith was allready playing. After we grabbed something to eat and some beers, he had just finished his set, so I can’t say anything about him.

After a little break Ben Howard went on stage and started with “Everything”, “Black Flies” and “Old Pine”. The two best parts of the show were “Only Love” followed by “The Wolves” and the last two songs “Keep Your Head Up” and “The Fear”. Maybe Ben should have saved one of these for the encore, because in my opinion the three bonus songs were not that strong.

Summarized it was a nice concert. Ben Howard is a great singer/songwriter and the whole open air gig gave me a nice festival feeling.

Ben Howard concert preparation

With the Ben Howard concert just two days away, I need to get prepared. For me it will be the first time to see the London based singer/songwriter/surfer. I’m very excited about the gig and will let you know, if Ben Howard was able to meet my expectations.

Check out the video below for the full “T in the Park 2012” gig.

Miles Kane @ Bi Nuu, Berlin 14.06.2013

Is there a better way to start the weekend than going to a concert? I don’t think so.

Yesterday Miles Kane played in a very small club in Berlin, Kreuzberg. I have to say, it was one of the best gigs I’ve ever seen. The first highlight happened, when my friends and I were searching for the club. We walked in the wrong direction and accidentally met Miles Kane, who was in a great mood. After taking some pictures, my friend asked “Do you gonna play “Start Of Something Big” tonight?” and Kane answered “Of course, man!”. Later at the concert, he opened the song with the words “This is for the gentlemen I met outside!”. The whole gig was pure energy. Miles opened it with “You’re Gonna Get It”. A Song from his new Album “Don’t Forget Who You Are”, written by Paul Weller.

From that point on, Miles Kane had the audience on his site and every further song was a true powerhouse. We were jumping, shouting and singing along. “First Of My Kind”, “Kingcrawler”, “Rearrange”, “Inhaler”,…It was just one big hit after another. With the announcement “I’ve one more for you” he started “Come Closer” and the audience went nuts.

This was truely a gig for the ages and I’ll definitely get me a ticket for his Hamburg show in October.
