München, München, Berlin, Berlin, Berlin og Hamburg. Fjerde afsnit i Deathstars tourdagbog følger dem videre rundt i Tyskland
Day #21 Munich 22-11-2011
When we woke up we were all very surprised to see our temporary driver Johannes. He had to help out cause our usual driver Scott had an emergency visit at the hospital. Munich is always a good city for us to play in but today it felt extra special playing in a classic arena like Olympiahalle. Especially considering the massacre here in 1972.
Our good friend Mirko from Italy and some guys from the record company came to visit us and the party was a fact. Till in Rammstein took some of the boys to his luxurious suite for some hysterical drinks and that place was just beyond anything we've seen.
Day #22 Munich 23-11-2011
We found out a couple of days ago that we were not doing the show in Vienna that was supposed to happen today due to productional circumstances. So instead we decided to stay around in Munich. We were parked outside the Backstage club and we all split up for different adventures. Skinny, Whip, Cat and Vinnie went to a typical Bavarian restaurant and had Weiner-Schnitzel with Erdinger weißbeer. Nightmare and Ewelina visited the mighty Hof Brauhaus for dinner. And the rest found a cheap chinese restaurant near the bus. In the evening we saw a great Irish folk/punk band named Fat Irish Bastard playing in the Backstage club.
Day #23 Berlin 24-11-2011
Ah, another day off. We've come to the conclusion many times that day off's are very dangerous for us cause the party always starts early and ends very late. The majority of the band and crew left for a hotel in Friedrichshein but Skinny and Vice wanted to stay at a very nice little Hostel called Heart of Gold located in Mitte.
After a dinner at White Trash we visited the exclusive bar Tausend and later the 10th anniversary party at Sage-club.
Day #24 Berlin 25-11-2011
O2 World Arena
We've all been looking forward to this day with high expectations since the show is in Rammstein's hometown. The Arena is brand new and really high-tech in every way. Vinnie took the opportunity to straighten his hair, put on make-up, dress up in Whip's old stage jacket and hat. He got a lot of attention during the show while he was doing lights. We had lots of friends showing up and after the show we went to Festhalle Kreuzberg and the night ended 9:00 AM at the Trink-Teüfel.
Day #25 Berlin 26-11-2011
O2 World Arena
Day two at the O2 World Arena. We all woke up really late due to the party the night/morning before. We had one of our best shows on the tour and like the party animals we are we took off to our official after-party at White Trash straight after the show. Vice's other band Crescendolls came down from Sweden and were playing a set of 45 minutes. So Vice had two shows in one day. 22 people from Sweden also came down for the show and party arranged by Rockflyget (the Rock flight). Madness!
Day #26 Berlin 27-11-2011
Everybody was hungover and relaxing… except from Skinny. I started the day with a long walk around Mitte and then at 5:00 PM it was time for Formula 1 and a couple of beers with my friends at the Hostel. Then I joined up with my friend Damon and we were invited to a belated Thanksgiving dinner at a friends house. Lot's of food and beers later we headed out to a couple of bars before it was time to go back to the bus bound for Hamburg.
Day #27 Hamburg 28-11-2011
O2 World Arena
The arena is located outside of the city so we were trapped in the backstage all day. We haven't had a chance to wash our stage clothes for very long so the smell inside the dressing room was unbearable. Cat and Skinny were shivering from withdrawals and fever and everything felt hopeless. The show started off really good but two songs into the set Cat's guitar starts buzzing and and making weird noises. Saso and Cat tried to fix it by changing guitars, amps and wireless devices but nothing seemed to help. So the mood in the backstage wasn't the best after the show. Some days just everything goes wrong.
