    Another fantastic setlist! Go to California! The Wheel! So, how was it?

    Oh. My. God. How much The Wheel was that? Like, complete?

    Edit: Ok, just reading they played it already the day before. Amazing!

    They had a lot of problems with the sound (in my opinion) and some technical problems inbetween, but the band were in a good mood and had a lot of fun in this countryside area.
    And there was a fire alarm, but nobody was interested

    Highlights: Manmower, Intrepid Explorer, Upstairs/Downstairs, Cornucopia -> Go to California -> Cornucopia, Cloudwalker, Ship of Fools, The Wheel (about 10min. I think) and Plan #1

  5. Yes the fire alarm was more a funny surprise

    The Wheel (about 10min. I think)

    Really? That would have been very much unlike the Hamburg version the night before. Anyone seen both shows?

  7. Yes. I think the wheel yesterday was much longer than in Hamburg. But not really sure. It felt like that.

    It was a full version of The Wheel. Personal highlight: Entropy. Didn't previously hear that song live and it's my favorite song from BTS.

    About the time when Kristoffer Lo had some technical problems. I don't know which song they were playing.

    There must be a recording. I saw a mic right from the soundboard.

  14. An atmospheric recording has been up on DIME for a while. Thanks Spacebandit!
    Great, great stuff going on. You can hear how this leads up to Bremen the next day.

    Highlights almost too many to mention. Seven songs from The Tower performed with ever growing vitality, interspersed with a handful of lengthy renditions of beautiful older songs, served to this - for a Saturday night - amazingly quiet audience of 600.

    Manmower is yet again growing in a new direction. Cornu-Cali-Copia contains a piano solo that sends my thoughts back to the Bård days. In Alchemyst they suddenly take it down to give way for a flügelhorn solo. The longest Lacuna/Sunrise recorded so far takes the journey deep into jazz land, and is chained together with a, so far, one-off performance on this tour of the laidback Entropy from 'Behind The Sun'.

    To top it off after a mighty Ship of Fools they resurrect The Wheel in painstaking detail, and also add to it. The tour debut in Hamburg the night before was a good run-through. Here they nail it.

    That "Manmower" version was already a highlight early on. So strong, so appropriately playing with the echoy ambience of this extraordinary venue, so far out jazzy, I could have gone home satisfied afterwards. But this was only the beginning Can't wait to hear the recording, just discovered it on Dime as well.

    Btw, there is no way there were 600 people. This was a fairly intimate evening. The gallery was empty. Packed in front of the stage (though you could walk up all the way to the fourth row), the crowd loosened 10-12 rows back. I'd say somewhere between 300-400 people maximum. But maybe I am off. Even after all these years in the concert biz it's hard to estimate...

  16. @ fillmore: Thanks, interesting. I used Spacebandit's estimate, he writes 500-600 in his notes to the recording.

    This review in NOZ (local newspaper) states 600 as attendance. I was surprised to read this and assumed the promoter (the city's cultural department) reported a higher attendance because they could not have this appear to be a flop. Standing in front of the venue when doors opened it seemed a bit odd that we would be seeing Motorpsycho playing to such a small crowd on a Saturday night in their strongest market. 30 minutes after doors there was almost nobody there and it looked like this is going to be a night with 150 fellow psychonauts tops. I did fill up considerably more come show time but like I said, I would be very surprised to learn these were 600 people. Whatever, anyway, it was a great show in an unusual venue, probably as much post-insdustrial as it can get. Papenburg saw a fair share of out-of-the-area visitors so I guess it was worth the investment either way.
