Default Dortmund 2012 the arival

Hi folks. firstable i have to say that we have just 3 or 4 pics but i have some problems to put it in here. I put it in my facebook page.https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=1&theater

It was a fantastic day. Sunny 28 degree. All in a good mood. Start the ride on 8:15 here in wiesbaden. first stop to collect my niece daniela with her boyfriend tino after 180 km. After a coffeebreak in my sisters house (have seen her years ago) we collected my buddys friend in bochum and drove dirctly to witten to northernlady. here we had another break with coffee and some food. Thanks for that, Northernlady.

We arrive round 13:30h in dortmund festivalplace. was not so crowded as we expect. When we reach the festival place the 3rd band was on stage. Kopek was great. Sound was phantastic of all bands include Saxon.

Try to phone with Boogie but no chance to get him at the first time. After a second try i got Boogie on the cellphone. He told me that hi will reach the field later. So we looking for beer.

the other my buddy Atzi Northernlady Dani Metalquenn and Tino are sitten in the Sun and talk. Myself walked on the site to the stage and have taken a look for sister sin. Wow what a pretty woman and phantastic singer.

to be continued...

More things happen. We meet Bernemann -Bernd Kost _ from Sodom. We used this opportunity for make 2 pictures. Last band before Saxon play are on stage. So we made our desicion to walk to the front of stage.Be sure the place was crowded.we reach the frontline of the stage and the local press made some interviews and pictures as you can see on the links i posted before
placed my saxon flag on the iron. Now then. Darkness on stage. ( sorry that i have no setlist here) because of the beer

First doug come on stage. i got a photo of this moment. the folk scream like hell if the first guitar riffs start. during the gig i saw boogie on the right. left from me my buddy atzi bang his head heavy. after a view songs the ladys must go out of the chaos. too much pressure on the front from behind. I put out my denim and threw it on stage. Biff took my denim and lay it on the front of drumset of nigel. First i thought i never get back my denim

sound was awesome and the band on top form. most of older songs they played. Biff and the band play with the folk like they ever did. Nibbs hair are an hurricane on the stage. Paul are on both sides played his riffs brilliant. the time come and the boys are disappeared behind the amps. what i expected , Biff wear my denim and Paul wears Boogies. Phantastic to see this. After a short time biff gave back my denim with a smile.
Last song i remember was def Princess of the night. Kids. Brilliant day excelent festival. I will come back. Next Saxongig is mine. Looking forward to Wacken. Thanks for read this. Schämsz
