    Yeah...The Wheel. After 20 personal MP concerts without The Wheel, i'm finally happy to see and hear it. And it was fantastic, loud and intensive. I'm happy.
    Anyway, great concert. Cologne last year was a bit better, but yesterday was a great rock show.

  4. Oh yes. What a fantastic playful high energy show. Was really worth doing that long overnight journey.

    Yeah. It was mind-blowing. My friend's from the UK who first got me into MP both said it was their best MP gig. My first time seeing them play Year Zero nearly had me in tears. A pair of lovers in front of me (You know who you are) were obviously also connecting big time through that song - you two touched my heart. Highlights for me were Y0, Starhammer, Sonata, a massive Wheel, and Fools Gold. For me last night was all about heart. I wanted to hug everyone in the room and got the chance to hug a few lovely psychonauts who I'd met last year in Köln or at Alkmaar this year as well as some new ones last night. Big shout out to boomer, wulf, nika, tomcat, the other anders, (just in time) ingo, and alli. Hope to see you all down the road. <3 <3

    There you go, throw a few oldies in the mix and you have yourself the most epic gigs ever.

    Bardog? Bartok + K9 or Big Black Dog?

    Nothing extraordinary in Bartok, just meant as a joke

    Really amazing pre Band.. Love Machine really rocked.. It was a great evening all though there was almost the complete tower played.. . That's sad cause I had that last year.. But the versions who were played were quite good.. I'm glad there was the pacific sonata.. Great tune to chill out.. The guys were in a Rocky mood.. Reine was with them.. Although it was the hottest day of the year the guys played it in one slide although bent first was saying we have to do 2sets lol Good Motorpsychodelic Evening...See you all next year..

    Yeah, many highlights tonight @Zakk on a hot and intense evening. Everyone in it from the beginning on (Dreamhome appr. 16 Minutes). Spontaneous highlights: The Wheel is turning again, a majestic Sonata, The Tower with superb far out jam (Frippo-Crimson vibes from Reine) plus Tomas nailing Starhammer. Bent & Snah godlike anyway: "A hardrock extravaganza" More at a later stage ... big emotions in Fools Gold as encore. Show lasted 2h20m (button successfully hit

    People of Herzberg will be happy tomorrow (today)

    Wow, 'The wheel', 'Pacific sonata',' Starhammer' and more! Epic!
    I was listening to a great 'Fools gold' live version from 2001/02 recently, and blown away by it. Hearing that one start up as an encore would blow my mind.

    My sister will be at Herzberg tonight. On this evidence she can look forward to an amazing concert.

    @Punj Lizard, I've been following your beautiful transition into a full blown psychonaut, and I'm so glad you got to experience "The Wheel". I believe you've already been K9'ed, so now I just dearly hope that you get to experience "The Golden Core", "Vortex Surfer" and "Plan #1" (in order of importance). Sail on, my friend!

    @Devotional Thanks. It's been a pretty blessed journey so far, but what blows my mind is the band have been doing this for so many years already and now I've been lucky enough that I got nudged into their sphere.

    I was fortunate enough to hear both The Wheel and Plan #1 in London last year, my first MP gig. I had only heard each of them maybe only a couple of times before the gig. Seeing them play The Wheel again yesterday was mind-blowing. And something one of my UK friends said was really true, it's good to see them where the appreciation is so strong. It's very lacklustre in the UK. At both Köln and Düsseldorf I could clearly see the band getting off on the energy. My plan #1 is to get back to see them in Germany hopefully next year. But before that... Drammen!

    Nice Article... I forgotten to mention that Snah himself- during the half of the concert- spotted me obviously smoking a J... He smiled a bit and twinkled with his left eye... lol
    A little highlight to me cause he is my Guitar Idol for so many years...

    Re: the Year Zero video
    Wow. Very subtle and precise. The part from 7'05 onwards, the stop-start section and Reine solo that follows, then the build up again, touched me especially.
    (Nice sound for a YouTube video, by the way).

    (Year Zero Video)And how about that drummerboy! Great playing again, to me he's like Geb, Kenneth,
    AND Bill Bruford ( the breaks) all in one, not to mention he's very much himself. Yeah, Snah is God, Bent is God, but Tomas is God!!!
