The Hooters for the first
time in Luswigsburg!
The Hooters show in
Luwigsburg was the last show of the European leg of the
mini tour this fall. The "Scala", which is like the "Capitol" in
Mannheim an old movie theatre, is a very nice venue with lots of
atmoshere. As usual for the "Time stand still" tour the Hooters opened
with the 2 first songs of the album: "I'm alive " and "Time stand
still", followed this time by "Southferry Road" and "fighting on the
same side. Like these 4 songs the whole show was a perfect mix of
6 songs from the new album and "classic" Hooters songs, some of them
with new intros. "And we danced" for example started with a very
powerfull intro which was driven by Fran's bass and John's guitar,
before Rob started the familiar melodica intro. And "25 hours a day"
turned into "Jigs'n'eels" which turned into "Satellite". And also songs
from the new album have been changed slighly: at the end of the Don
Henley cover "Boys of summer" David and Fran joined Eric, Rob and John
adding drums and bass to the song.
After "Johnyy B", which was the first encore, Eric presented "songs
being written for other artists, who can actually sing": "One of us" in
this nice accustic version with one verse and the chorus in German and of course "Time after time". After
that, Eric wanted to finish the show, but Rob made him stay: the final
track of the album "Free again" was the final song of this show and
everybody was smiling, when Eric forgot the words of one of the verses.
Anyway, "Free again" is the perfect song , and "see you next summer" is
the perfect satemet to finish a show.
After 30 shows in Europe in 2007 the band returns to Philadelphia for 2
more shows. Looking forward to seeing the guys next summer.
