Brigitte review/comments

It was really a great show and people loved it. I watched from backstage and had the direct view to the audience. I also have the interview, but it was really chaotic, hahahaha. Kosta gave me the backstage pass directly, because peole at the entrance didn't know it. The interview could not be done at 7pm, because Kai was still missing at 6pm and so they were too late to signing session and everything was a little bit delayed. After Kosta I meet Michi, we ate something together, but he seemed really tired, so I didn't do any questions there.

The sound was good. Kosta later said, that normally the sound is not so good from backstage. But for me it was good. They were also satisfied with the sound.  It was a really good show. I could see the audience also enjoyed. Of course again mainly the Helloween songs, but also several other songs like 'Unisonic', 'King For A Day', 'My Sanctuary' and 'We Rise'.

Tobias Sammet also watched backstage the Unisonic show. He was later standing behind me. I was in front at backstage.

About the interview, I had to wait a little bit and first there were 2 guys who did an video interview with Kai and Michi. Kosta really had to convince both to do this at all, because they both wanted to watch Edguy who started to play by that time. Kai was by that time already gone to watch Edguy. So we did this video interview with 4 guys. Kai later came in and excused that he cannot participate in the interview now and we could set-up something like via email or skype later. I got most questions answered with some interesting details, for example Unisonic will use some Masters Of Rock footage.

I cannot watch the video interview correctly at the small laptop. It is too slow for this 1 Gig HD video. I thin I can only upload and watch it, when I'm back home. But the interview is quite funny and a little chaotic, with Kai entering in the middle to say that he cannot do it right now.

About the new Kiske solo album, he is collecting ideas for it. It will be completely different than his previous solo records. He didn't find the words for it, a little bit sacral or something like that. But also electric guitars. He didn't find the words for it. I asked if he meant symphonic, but he said no. After Edguy show they had to drive back to Germany immediately via nightliner bus, because in the morning the flight for Kiske & Hansen from Nürnberg back to Hamburg was booked. By the way, they arrived in the morning also via night bus and had only a few hours for resting. This was really a heavy time scedule booked. Kai, he is heavily working on Gamma Ray. So I guess he needed to be back in Hamburg.
