And here it goes again! (Great – now I have Zombie Porkchop’s “History” in my head… *argh*) Kaizers made it down to Europe after the “warm up gigs” in Scandinavia. First stop: Luxembourg! Which means the tour started terribly confusing: German, English, Norwegian, Luxemburgish, French, and Portuguese (’cause I had to buy a ticket for a Portuguese band playing at Rockhal *g*) – all in one day. Argh!!

But wait, I wanted to keep my reports short, so let’s get started. Unfortunately, Rockhal was pretty empty – not much of a surprise, of course, because it was the first Kaizers Orchestra concert in Luxembourg, but a pity. On the other hand, that not too bad for the first concert of a tour, because like this, Kaizers can test their show in front of a “neutral” audience to see the reaction to the different songs.

The concert started with the local support band The Disliked, who played ska punk. Great, I liked it a lot! But very confusing language-wise… the band itself didn’t know whether to talk English, French, or Luxemburgish. *g* Next up was Jarle Bernhoft. I didn’t know him at all… and my conclusion after seeing him for the first time: Seems to work fine as support act. He uses loops to “imitate” a band, which is really fascinating. However, it’s definitely not my music; and I fear that the loop-thingy won’t be fascinating for more than a few times. But the “common” Kaizer fan won’t be seeing all concerts, so I’m not really representative here. =;-)

The setlist: Intro (“Begravelsespolka” according to drmowinckel.com), Delikatessen, Veterans klage, Sigøynerblod, Resistansen, Philemon Arthur & The Dung, Femtakt filosofi, Din kjole lukter bensin mor, En for orgelet en for meg, Psycho under min hatt, Svarte katter & flosshatter, Bøn fra helvete, Kontroll på kontinentet, Maestro, encore Dieter Meyers Inst.

So that means that a couple of great songs didn’t make it… =:-( I’m not surprised about Hjerteknuser, and I don’t really mind that one either. =;-) But I REALLY hope that Djevelens orkester, Señor Torpedo, and Diamand til kull will make it back on the list at least once in a while!

Some remarks about the concert:

So, all in all this was a typical “first” concert in a new city, which means the expectations were rather low. But like (almost) always, Kaizers managed to get the audience excited and totally convince them. And even though the plan was probably more to concentrate on the music this time, they put on quite a bit of a show, and it was really entertaining!

Uhm ja. “Short”. I fear I’ll have to practice that a bit. Tune in again tomorrow to read the next episode of “Susi S. tries to report about a Kaizers concert in ten short lines!” *lol*
