David mesmerises the crowd with 'Subterraneans'
Last night they loved you
Without further ado, we bring you this report from SusanS as she pauses to check her email between Berlin and Paris.
David thrilled the Berlin audience last night with a stomping 31 song set. He entered the stage to a huge roar wearing a stunning deep blue suit and tie and was soon teasing the crowd with hints that it was going to be a long night. The show contained five new additions to the tour:- 'Look Back In Anger', 'Moonage Daydream', 'Survive' , a beautifully reworked 'Rebel Rebel' and 'Alabama Song' (which he announced as a song he sang at breakfast every morning in his Berlin apartment :-).
He delighted us all with a selection of hits and 'Heathen' tracks in the opening section before leaving the stage for a mega-fast costume change. He returned in his lovely black suit and announced he would be doing the entire 'LOW' album. This brought such a cheer that he smiled and jested that he was glad everyone knew it :-) As if that was not a big enough treat, he left the stage promising to do yet more songs; returned in a gorgeous long black coat..and gave us another 9. He was really rocking. 'Hallo Spaceboy' was so full of drive that I thought I had broken my nose on the man in front (ouch).
'Ziggy played guiiitttttaaaaar..'
David and the band gave a powerful, energetic and inspirational performance throughout. If the post show fan get-together in the 'pub across the road' can be used as a guide then this show may go down as a big tour favourite. Everyone seemed overjoyed and kept commenting on the 'amazing' sound quality. It was nice to see Mark Plati too. He came across and chatted with some of us before joining his guests :-)
Thanks to all for a wonderful show. Onward to Paris then :-)
