Default The Biggest Review Ever - Part 2 - Oberhausen !

so welcome to part 2

SAXON IN OBERHAUSEN ON 14TH OF MARCH 2007:

2 friends of us asked if they could join us for this gig - well they had a saxongig or two before and they wanted to enjoy them again so this was the right time as the venue is nearly in the neigbourhood. so we were 5 in numbers and gave us the name "the saxon five" that day. at 02:30 pm we left home heading to a nearby bundeswehrshop where i was the day before already to get some new shirts and boots because the old ones were overused on 300 to 400 saxongigs - well, i stopped to count some years ago.... rich bought some bundeswehrstuff to have some more souvenirs in his germany-trip-collection.

so in the beginning: let there be tickets



we decided to join the centro in oberhausen in the early afternoon before the gig in order to have some food. itīs a nice shopping-mile with a small river aside which comes along with many small bars outside where you can sit and have a beer or two. itīs near the venue and easily reachable by a small walk.

we went to the könig bar and ordered some specialities. i ordered spare rips - in all you can eat style - i was really well fed up afterwards

when we approached the parking lots the trailer was better visible than the day before in cologne:



there were 4 trucks: 3 busses for the 3 bands and the truck tractor train for the stage stuff:



rich said: this is the big one so this must be the one to be entered. it was equipped with a numbercode to open the door so we tried some combinations: 20000 (feet) wasnīt functional - 60000 (men) wasnīt better and 747 was also without success. so we gave up - we went out of numbers....

so upstairs we went to stand in another queue again. we were there very early to make sure to own the first raw:



the friends which were with us had short hair so rich decided to wash their brains...



after taking ownage of the best places rose tattoo began the show again. it was 100% of rockīn fucking roll - the t-shirts one could buy at the merchandiser had this text shown on it. the singer asked us if we had love and that he would give us even more love. he gave love to the brothers and the sisters. and to the brothers of the sisters and vice-versa. he was a very nice guy and so we enjoyed them again.

here are some impressions:

paul and nibbs sang the backing vocals of red star falling - sounded very nice



during the show biff came to us and took a sheet of paper which saxonfan glued to the barrier in front of him. it was a printout with "from chicago to germany" written on it which we made for him. biff went back to the stage and showed it to the crowd so that everyone could see that there are fans even from the other side of the ocean. after that he ate it and spit it out. how weird was that. we will never forget that enjoyable moment - cheers !
