Can't wait to see them!!!! Almost excactly three years after the first concert with the famous Guy-handshake!!! Very Happy

I really have to get first row at the Huxleys. Collogne was nice but it would have been a lot nicer if I had a better place and not third row behind a tall one... Suspect

ok, I'm back home and though I was a bit frustrated about my third-row place I will try to remember the nice moments. It was a lovely concert, Guy joked with the audience a lot, for example he asked what people from Collogne say when they mean "great"...it was "yot!" (with a long o) Very Happy, he also saw me and blew me a kiss *sigh*, the band-sound was great (not too loud, not to low) and the opening act Howling Bells was nice too, maybe I buy a CD in Berlin.
And before any new fan thinks, I am cocky about beeing a fan since 2001, it's not only because I am such a huge fan, that I need my first row, it is because of my weakness after fighting cancer 4 years and because I am just too small for back rows. Fortunately my back aches went better during the gig (dancing or sitting, but not standing still, I brought a rucksack with enclosed stool for situations like that)

Anyway, I hope I get a better place in Berlin and I hope the concert will be nice too... Smile

I have two tickets available for Berlin tomorrow.

My wife and I can't travel from London, as our young son is sick. GUTTED. :-(

The tickets (PDFs) can be emailed. Please PM me if interested.

Well for always being at the very back of the hall each time I go to a gig I can tell that a third row place is a very awesome place !
I'm so far for the stage each time that for me the signer and the band look like little ants.
Apparently you were very close to the scene as Guy managed to recognize you cyclops you can't say you were misplaced !
I'd kill to have a third row place Razz But though I understand you, I'm small and it's annoying to be behind tall people.
I also have big back problems and that's why I don't do a lot of gigs. And sorry for your cancer too.

Ok.... I guess I'm not in the condition writing about yesterday... Laughing
So I just try to put it short and as objective as I can be!

- First row
- AMACING concert
- The Elboys were in such a great mood - really having fun!
- The fans were amacing, too
- I'm now the (very proud) owner of a drum stick - used by Guy and signed by him, Richard and Mark!!!
- including hugs afterwards! *sigh*
- and pictures!

I will never forget this evening!!!!

On this way: thanks again to Manu, who like three years ago, tried to calm me down and took loads of pictures!!!!!!! :-)
Here is one from the loves of my life!!!!!

PostSubject: Cologne 11/11/07   Thu 10 Nov 2011, 09:34

I´ve been in cologne on monday too and it was really f***ing awesome!!! Was my first real show from the "Guys" after seeing a lot on DVD/TV/Internet. I have visited about 400 concerts and it is definitly in my personal Top Ten, maybe even Top Five!! They´re having so much fun on stage, despite many songs are melancholical and Guy is a master of connecting to the audience!! Great!

Has anybody a setlist of the gig? Was it the same as in Brussels?

I found no setlists in this forum up to now! Maybe it will be clever to create a threat for setlists?!?

Oh wow ElbowFreak you were so close to the stage !
I really wonder how you all do to be so close and to manage to get pictures and hugs and drumsticks from them.
I wish to be as lucky as you tuesday.

Hi scharpma & welcome to the board! Most people tend to post setlists in each gig's own thread so if you're looking for others check the venue & dates of ones listed. Smile

It was lovely! I had front row fortunately and during "Weather to fly" Guy went to the security pit and shook hands, kissed the ladies and I got a real big hug and kiss.... drunken Party!

Oh dear... I'm really in need of another Elbow live experience. Seems like it's a three year time lap everytime. Hopefully. :-)
