Apparently a non-festival show!

The venue looks great:

This one is tempting.

I may well be visiting the better side of Europe over the summer and this could work.

Csar, don't you live in Germany? How is that not near? You know it's 2016, the cold war is over, the Berlin wall came down.

Definitely going to this one! The Venue looks fun and it isn't all that far from where I live - i'll see you there!

Hmm interesting. Is there any good sightseeing in Gelsenkirchen or nearby?

Can you imagine ..... an extra-terrestrial disc jockey? Like, listening to radio waves from space? It was unbelievable!

I think I'll be going to this one in stead of Pukkelpop. Amfitheather looks cool (red rocksy?) and it's a shorter drive, 1hr45min.

P.S. no Holland shows yet??

Düsseldorf and Köln aren't too far away. They're good fun and pretty.
But literally any German city will be great. Just go find a decent place to drink and gobble up delicious German food. Make friends with the bardame. Be merry.

nein! nein! 2016

Haha. German Angst! You're right. I'll see what I can sort out to go there. Really tempted. It's essentially the last chance to grab a BITE (tour) and I certainly would always bite my ass if I didn't try to go there because of a "mimimi, too far away" douch attitude :D.

And I'm in Germany up until about a week before that show.  >:(
Oh well, can't win them all. Plus, already going to Dockville with mates.

CSAR, where are you located in Germany? We're doing a road trip for three weeks across the country. Drinks?

Enjoyed, What's your schedule? are you around London the early part of Aug? Also, if you're doing Germany, keep me in touch. Still mad I missed your show in DC.
That would have blown my mind. If I had a mind.

"We going up!" and then pogo for the stars

Hard to say at this point! My girlfriend is coming over from America at some point in the summer and we haven't figured out at all what we're doing. I want to take her to some of my favourite cities in Europe though so we'll probably head out to do that after I've bored her with England for a month or so. I'll keep you posted!

I live in Dresden, Saxony. You know, right behind the curtain. Or as we call it: the valley of the clueless. When are you touring the country?

Woha. That's kind of pricey. Next week is the official opening for ticket sales, right?

edit: and i would totaly freak out if they announce a show in cologne

edit2: bought

edit3: if there is a forum meet-up i'm in

edit4: somebody should tell jeannie. gelsenkirchen is not that far from amsterdam

no idea, no idea

and Oktoberfest opens just 8 days later...


My first thought when I saw a picture of the venue, was that the amphitheater looks eerily familiar to the scene in 'Apocalypse Now' when they fly in the Playboy bunnies for the troops.

Where? Paladium? Or E-werk(that would be cool). OK checking it.
edit: read it wrong, thought it was announced allready

I'm in. I'll go to Gelsenkirchen, that venue looks great, or wait for a anouncement for a gig in the Netherlands

She's informed but not sure if she's going

According to the Amphitheater's FB page, this is their only Germany concert this year. So, no Cologne, no Dresden, no nothing else.  :'(
"You cannot eat money, oh no. You cannot eat money, oh no. When the last tree has fallen and the rivers are poisoned, you cannot eat money, oh no."

HOLY SHIT!!!! :o I have to pay € 14,90 for shipping the ticket to the Netherlands? What happened to email and printing a ticket? That's Bullcrap! € 75,- is too expensive, than Pukkelpop is the better option.
Ze Germans are keeping foreigners from coming to their shows
