    Still a few weeks to go for another great experience with the universe's best band.
    I'm just wondering if there might be an admission for audience/audio taping with a micstack
    from the board area. I don't think there is trouble with the venue at all (my hometurf), but
    if our dear PSYCHONAUTS say "no" I've to accept. But as a long-time taper and always trying
    to provide the best - free-for-everybody - sound that would be gracing me in heart and soul.

    That reminds me of my adventures as a young taper - smuggled a cheap cassette walkman into Frankfurt Festhalle in my trousers (used to do so for several concerts) only to find a written sign on the actual entrance: "Taper's section behind the mixing desk".
    It was the 1990 Grateful Dead gig of course...

    Oh dear Johnny...I've been to all german concerts of the mighty DEAD back then in 1990.
    Except for Frankfurt. A Berlin DARK STAR...well...surealistic.
    Anyway, times go on further up the road and I think it's time to leave the RAMPENSAU place
    for other younger people. Still I try to do my best.
    Tusen takk to Thor Egil. If it works I will not disappoint anyone. Not even my ViKINGS.
    Grateful Dead will be forever my fave band, and THEY know WHY.

  5. Looking forward to a recording, especially now that I cannot go to Bielefeld after all. I have a ticket for sale, btw...

    Hi Spacebandit!
    Which device do you use for your recordings? I hope it's OK, that I ask, and it's not a taper's secret. Do you live in Bielefeld?

    If nothing else pops up - the Biergarten / Restaurant at the corner of the Forum was OK last time to have sth., also to eat as well. 6pm the latest I'd say

    It seems that the Biergarten at the corner is closed.

    @ jig: no, I don't live in BI, but I got friends there for overnight stay.
    Recording equipment is my "new toy": LineAudio CM3 capsule mics on a micophone stack at
    max. 2.7 meters into a Zoom H5. Most likely from the soundboard as I hope for power supply.
    Those mics eat batteries like a spider flies. I have a new powerbank with me but I don't
    know how long that lasts. Y'know MP is 160-180 min. continued performance.
    But if they say "no" to that I still have the OKM2R mics -> Zoom H2n.
    I will figure out in the afternoon what will go. Forum's usually taperfriendly so it
    depends on the ViKINGS. But I got some bribary vinyl with me...hehehe...
    @ tomcat: will figure out what my BI hosts are saying. At least 7pm at the venue.
    And sorry to say - this is my only show of this "inter-" tour.
    CU Psychonauts tomorrow in the city that doesn't exist.

    Oh, and btw - it's 100th anniversary of end of 1st WW.

    A suggestion: How about the Platzhirsch on the boulevard? A 10 Minutes walk to the forum.

    Nice set list - and a new song! Hope you all enjoyed the show.

    Band were in a good mood, seemed to enjoy the show very much.
    Very powerful show with effectively thrown in more quiet moments.
    About 2:30 h I think (correct me, if I’m wrong)
    The new song sounded promising, fits well with the Tower songs.
    The vocals sounded interesting, but it’s hard to tell live.
    It really got me excited for the upcoming album.

    159 minutes

    What a blast
    Pure love

    Sound was mixed really good even if way too loud (imo). All instruments and vocals were clearly differentiated from each other. Very nice.

    S.T.G. with three guitar necks raised was only one highlight besides several others.

    Great evening.

    Nice set! Looking forward to tonight. Hoping for a new tune tonite and maybe one of the Tower songs be replaced with a classic. Either way, glad to see them back at this beautiful venue.

    Same structure as some Tower songs, tempo change, melodic, powerfull chorus-like

    A quick search under 'Lux Aeterna' reveals that Terje Rypdal has an album by that title. That seems like as good a place as any to start trying out his music ... so ... diving in right now.

    It is also a piece by Gyorgy Ligeti that was used in 2001: A Space Odyssey.

    Wee, finally some new stuff! Looking forward to Lux Aeterna!

    And Internet Explorer inside Manmower sounds like an interesting segue; I can imagine Manmower flowing quite fluently into that one and back...

    And no Bartok!

    Oh, just add Bartok before Lux!

    Well, I did see a high stereomic stand, so I guess there will be a chance to relisten it.
    Sound and vocals clear, volume perfect - no earplugs no damage 😎

    How funny life could be? For me the answer is: Bielefeld Forum 11/11/2018.
    One of those few moments in life when you are completely "in there" for music and more.

    Oh well...ok...might be from the Stack recorded...but y'know - just the usual poor quality.
