I have a theory about it: As these gigs are (Cologne, Berlin) to make up the gigs that were postponed last year, the setlist is very similar to 2015 autumn.

:von: when Vision thing started: "Stand up if you love America!" ;D
The song was accompanied by red-blue flashing lights as used by American police cars.

Great atmosphere even if I had back pain and had to stand up on the balcony leaning against the rail. Best of all was that the Voice was more than ok, very important. Maybe even the best I've heard him on average (there were occasional mumblings, but more often that metallic rough voice you want to hear).

I found it very good, but then I also had very low expectations. Also very good was the Guru, or whoever does the lights now, just brilliant :notworthy: Maybe had to do with the fact I was on the balcony, but I saw many details I have previously not seen. An artist in action!

I give the gig 7, maybe even 8 out of 10. Had expected 3/10. Would have been even higher with a new song and with a slower tempo between songs, they seem to be in a hurry sometimes, lights out 2 seconds, new song starts, play it, lights out and so on. But it was great to hear Andrew's voice so good and that he was in a great mood!

I should also add that Ben's guitar play sounded really great. Maybe I was stood so that I could hear it better than usual, but I think Andrew should bring on (CN)/SKOS or something similar so Ben can really show what he can do. It's not at all that irritating heavy metal sound from the 80s anymore, it really sounds good nowadays!

Thought it was one of the better ones, the vocals nice clear and loud in the mix, overall louder than any sisters gig I've been to in at least 10 years, guitars sounded crisp and loud. :von: in fine form, similar to the roundhouse gig last year. Some of Bens playing slightly different, a bit more space between notes (occasionally), lots of delay and some slightly different sounds, some reverb on the vocals too, Alice intro was great, most of it was great. Like the Belfast show. Expectations were extremely low, it's about as good as they get these days. Hope it was recorded as it'll make a cracking bootleg.
They do rush through a lot of it, tc was much less rushed than usual. 1959 still a mess, nice levels of smoke and the lights were pretty.
