Uh … what was that?! =:-D

After two rather similar concerts you start to think that you understood the concept of the tour, and that from now on, the concerts will mostly vary in details and maybe a couple of songs and of course the audience. Well, not with Kaizers …! For Zurich, they mixed up the whole set list again, and the Swiss audience was extremely loud and eager to dance and party – as usual for Switzerland. Wow!

I brought my camera, and so I was a little distracted by taking pictures, especially in the beginning of the concert. To make up for that, I had already jotted down the first four songs of the “typical” set list – just to delete and correct them right away. *g* And that’s how it continued throughout the concert, more or less … =;-) And when I walked through the back of the venue after the first few songs to get to the other side, I was amazed: Not only because it was quite packed (and the hall really wasn’t that small!), but because EVERYONE was moving and dancing, even in the very back. Awesome! So it fit in perfectly when at some time during the concert, a group of Swiss fans held up a huge sign that said: “Please Kaizers don’t quit or split!!!” A great idea, and a great way to show the affection. =:-) Even though nobody will know how much we can rely on the answer “no, don’t worry, we’ll never do that” …

The setlist:

Actually, there’s not really that much more to report … The atmosphere was really great, the audience was singing along loudly, and Bak et halleluja wasn’t actually planned, but they just “had to” play it, because the audience started singing it several times. Already in the short break after Omen’s megaphone solo in Svarte katter, and then again in the break before the encores, of course.

The whole concert centered around Hellraizer’s birthday – which didn’t even stop after Hellraizer admitted that it wasn’t really his birthday. Still, he was responsible for all guitar solos (except if the Jackal asked him if he would maybe be so kind to give the solo to the other guitarist?), and he was ordered to the microphone a few times (“Not only can he play guitar solos, but he can also sing and dance! That is YOUR night!”).

During Forloveren, we had to do hissing sounds again, which the Jackal commented with a “This sounds like jazz!! I … hate it!”. Omen was busy taking notes again, and when the band entered the stage for the encores, Hellraizer walked right behind Omen and imitated him. Just tiny details, not really anything new, but still an incredibly good concert that was entirely different from the first two shows of the tour. Hach, I love this band … =:-)
