Okay, let's go ....
Name of Venue: Phillipshalle in Düsseldorf (Germany)
Okay, how I beginn? :D First, my english is not the very best, but I try. ^^
We (my brother, two friends of mine and I) arrived the "Phillipshalle" at 4 pm (2 hours before you can enter the hall). First we go to toilete in a bar and go back to the location. Some people were already here (50-75 people). The chance to get in the first-fifth row was very good. After 1 1/2 hours f'n freezing our asses, they open the doors. *hell yeah* We ran into the hall and ... yeah, we stand in the middle-right part from the stage: third or fourth row. THAT WAS AWESOME! ;)
We talk a little bit of the bands and saw the "wallpaper" (I don't know the right word for that xD) of Halestorm. Okay, Halestorm made the beginnin. That rocks! After circa 45 minutes of waiting we saw the drummer of Halestorm Arejay, who was a very funny guy. He throwed some “Plektren” (this plastic things for the guitar ^^) like ninja stars in the crowd. Lzzy tried to throw one “Plektrum” like him, but she failed and only entered stage. :D Some people of the crowed, Lzzy and Arejay were laughing. Very nice for the beginn.
And now .... let the show begiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin:
1. Band: Halestorm
The lights go out and the show beginn with “It’s not you”. Very good opener. I was so f#n excited to see Lzzy live in action. It was a wonder that I don’t pee my pants! :D :D She looks “f#n six smok’n hot”. Very incredible. The crowd was very good in action, we all made party! That rocks. The most of them were headbanig there heads, some of them show the devil horns .... standard things.
But there were just some people (like me) who know the lyrics. And I was sooo screaming/shout that hard, that I have attracted the attention of Lzzy (!) That was so awesome to me. She often smlied in dircetion to me and gave a “kiss hand”. And when I show one time the devil horn and in the same time she do the same thing, I know that she dirceted this to me. I fallen in love to her …. But maybe she would say “~~ But it’s not you~~” :D ;) Than I would say “~~ I get off on you ~~” :D ^^
After I have to say so much about Lzzy ( ;) ), I want to talk a little bit about the performance of the band. As the opening band there were very good. They fired the crowd up for the coming bands. Very good, really. We jumped up to the sky and pumped up our fists into the clouds. ^^ In the near future, when a Halestorm concert is near to me, I will go to them. One Highlight was definitely the drum solo. Arejay played with the crowd, for example made a photo of us and said “Danke schön” (German words for : “Thank you”). German people really like it, when Americans learn German words for concerts, even if it’s just a easy word or a whole sentence. That’s really cool. The crowd freaked out, when he was playing the beginnin part of Down with the Sickness. And the comedy highlight were this XXL drumsticks! :D That was really great.
My song highlights were “It’s not you”, “I get off”, “Familiar taste of posion” (wow, that’s a really slowly but very rock’n song) “What were you expecting?” and “Dirty work”. There was no song, which was bad. I rocked them all! ;) :D
2. Band: Buckcherry
How I beginn? Let me explain: There were good, but that was not the kind of music I prefere. The rocked some good songs, but after the very good performance of Halestorm they have problem to get the same level of activity crowd like Halestorm. Just other words for: The crowd was in my opinion for a long time “dead”. Was this just to save energy for the two other bands after them? I don’t know. We jumped sometimes up and down, shown the devil horns. In my opinion I prefere more songs of Halestorm, Papa Roach and Disturbed, than the performace of Buckcherry. Sounds hard, but I don’t like it very much.
My song highlights were (--, nothing ... I don’t know lyrics or something)
3. Papa Roach
OOOOOOOOOOH, Hell yeah! ThE cRoWeD wAs FREEEEAKING OUT! Wow, great ... great .... GREAT! I can’t discribe it. All songs were great. Many, many Mosh pits were on the start, the people jumped high and higher and the voices sounds more agressiv. Sweeaat! :D In my first Mosh pit of my lifetime, I will always remember the action in the first mosh pit of the evening .... ~~ Papa Roach – The Enemy ~~ ... what a huge mosh pit, and I was in the middle of it! *yeah* My backs hurts, thats sweat. One guy have his glasses broken.
This ... is ... MOSH-PIT! :D
“~~To be loved~~”, incredible good. The beginn with “Hey, how, let’s go” was good. And as wrestling fan I have known the song from WWE Raw (old theme song) and know the whole lycris! I was shouting soooo loud. *WAAAAAAH HO-H HO-H* :D Another Highlights: Getting away with murder (I love this song for a long while), Hollywood and Burn! And then the best for last …. “CUT MY LIFE INTO PIECES ….” “THIS IS MY LAST RESORT” Awesome, awesome … one word: awesome!
My song highlights were The Enemy (my first Mosh Pit action ^^), Burn, Hollywood, Last Resort, Getting away with murder, Scars, To be loved
Then after Papa Roach huge performance, the black curtain was down. Uh, Uh … yeaah! The Final is comin!
LIGHTS OUT …. SCREAMING ……………….. The huge LCD TV with “Remnants”! Goosepimples!!! :D The Storyline on the TV was great. I love this new invention of Disturbed perfomance! Every song (like Liberate with this computer aminations, Another way to die with the global warming things/disasters, 10,000 Fists with the camera-action and the 10,000 Fists in the air, The Animal with a wulf, Remnants/Asylum with the similar seqenzes from the music video, The Game with the door action, and and and many many many more) was so bad ass. Cool like cinema! :P Very good work
DAN, MIKE AND JOHN ENTERED THE ARENA OF CHAOS …. The crowed freaked out! Remnants is so a classic opener, great! ………………….. BAAAAAM! Asylum is comin! “REEEELEASE ME”. Every lyric of all songs I was singing with my hardest voices I could make! I shouted/growled … Today I’m completely croaky!
The Game is my alltime favorite songs and I jumped so high I could. And sing every sentence so angry I could make! :D Very cool to her this song one more time live. My bro, friends and I were made so hard paaaaardy with the other people. So many mosh pits. And my second mosh pit was in “ANOTHER WAY TO DIE” …. And hell yeah, it was really another way to die! I crashed the other guys and the moshed against me, that I saw the angles sing! :D :D This mosh pit was even bigger than the one from “The Enemy” (Papa Roach). It is very difficult to describe the whole performane with words. It was unbelievable good. Another Highlight was hearing the current single of the new album live ….. THE ANIMAL (!) … wow, so freaking gorgeous! Very good performance. Very cool was this “camera-action” by “Ten Thousand Fists” when they filmed the crowed.
When Indestructible (2nd last song) was over and they show the national flag of Germany, we all shouted “ZUGABE – ZUGABE – ZUGABE” (german for “ENCORE – ENCORE – ENCORE”) and then Düsseldorf was infected with the sickness! Down with the Sickness we gave all power we have, 110% of energy of our bodies. Mosh Pits and devil horns! Unbelievable. What a great evening, what a great encore to ending this night? At the end it was clear that we all are “DISTURBED” and they show was over! WOOOOOOOOW!
My song highligts were Asylum, The Animal, The Game, Stupify, Land of Confusion, 10,000 Fists, Indestrucitble, Down with the Sickness, Another Way to Die, Stricken
That was all. Thank you! :D
