Good morning, Ellen, and other Foreigner fans,
Ellen, you summed up the most important things of yesterday evening, thanks very much. I fully aggree with you, the performance was way too short;it's rather strange to hear the songs shortened up so much. But I think it made sense, for many people here know the songs but don't know who played them. So a lot of people may have had their "aha"-moments before the screen: " Oh, even this was from Foreigner..."
Ellen, you didn't miss one, "Urgent" was the second, I think. To IWKWLI a gospel choir entered the stage, it was an excellent final point.
Kelly was GREAT, he showed his whole performing-skills in this short medley. Even my musically not very interested hubby had to admit that "this guy has a good voice".
What I missed was a hint of Thomas Gottschalk that there is a new song in the medley and a question to the band about it. Kelly took the chance and threw in the title of "No End in Sight".
And, yes, a German tour in June... Ellen, we'll have a party with all the other German die-hards then!!! :smile::tongue::biggrin:
FWT, will it be possible to show the "Wetten,dass..." performance in the video section? A link to the whole show replay that I gave 4eigner in another thread may be not very amazing for non-german-speaking people...
One last funny detail: After Foreigners performance Thomas Gottschalk ( who is in the mid-50s and outed himself as a big fan, too) rushed into the public and asked a 18-year-old boy how it was. "Good", the guy stottered very surprised. And Gottschalk said: "Oh, those were times...to this music children were fathered..." and he began to hum IWKWLI. You can imagine that the whole hall laughed :wink:
I hope the band has a good time in Germany for the rest of it's visit here. Even weather begins to get better...
Bye for now,
