Hey, thanks for the Eurostar review!  :D
Setlist already in, well done! "Man Down" was played, haven't heard that in a loong time.

You should've taken a train to Metzingen today, probably even colder there!  :o
Guess I will leave during Rummelsnuff's set (just like I did 3 years ago at the same place), they're okay and quite a laugh, but to me this music just doesn't fit after TV...

On Thursday morning (Dec. 13), news broke that The Cure will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next year. Lead singer and co-founder Robert Smith called in to the SiriusXM Volume "Feedback" morning show to share some other great news.

"Seeing all these new bands—I’ve listened to some of these bands and met so many of them that it’s kind of inspired me to do something new," he said. "So, yes, we’re going in about six weeks time to finish off what will be our first album in more than a decade. It’s very exciting times for us all around."

And lots of the bands that said that The Stones were too old when they were playing in their 40s are now playing with their bands in their 60s!

Yeah well, they've proven that age has nothing to do with being able to rock (& roll)!  :)

Richards added that “it was interesting to play sober,” while Wood noted: “We’re weaving [guitar parts] a lot more conscientiously now. We’re much more aware of the gaps and the spaces between. We’re in our seventies, but we’re still rocking like we’re 40-year-olds, you know?”

GREAT, someone deleted his post, so now it looks like I'm talking to myself here...  :-\  :'(

...that's not a cover, just "inspired" by GGE.

We discussed the Briefs a few times (sadly I did miss their gig last Friday...):

Headhunters was played by TV Solo and TVOM also

Around 2011, like Neuss Dr. John (with Vom) or Nijmegen 29.9. Solo. And also by Cheap, but i have no recording of that

Fix It was played at Elland 9. Sept. 2006 also 17.9.2006 Essen. I think thats the only 2 times, so in fact there is a Recording

Alright, so you have a live recording of it! (I meant studio/official release, but never mind.)  8)

Thanks for the info, you're always well informed when it comes to "rare" songs.

The Revolution's the Same was played on both gigs

Yeah, I do remember that from Essen (had forgotten about Fix It, long time ago etc.)!  :)
I still drink tea from the cup which Klaus had designed & ordered for us at EB 2006.  8)

Was "Headhunters" ever performed by TV solo?

Maybe one day at an Earthbound (remember them?)

Yeah, I have a distant memory of them...  ;)

Thanks for fixing things with the setlists!  :)
Btw:
There is one song (or more?) which was played live a few times I think (around 2003?), called "Fix It", but was never recorded/released, I think. (?)

Now, now, that would be too much to ask..  The same goes for the Alt Johann gig this year...

Sorry to hear this.
Btw, I just had a look at some setlists and it's nice to see some additions from you, like "700th time played" - good job!
Sorry for having to tell you: setlist for Sep 29th has a mistake in it: "No hope street" is listed twice.

That's the above list, plus It Don't Work, A Step Back, plus "Crash-Landing" LP

Wow, so he really played many (nearly all) of his songs for us!  :)

There are a few I've never heard live, e.g. "No message please". I'd love to hear "A step back" - in Augsburg at EB 2013 he wanted to play the whole album for us, so I guess I heard it there. However the setlist is "lost", because Klaus never "released" the film he made (at least he could've watched it and taken note of the setlist)!  :(

What was it like?

Also the whole "Land of the Overdose" was played on this 2 Days

GREAT! That's how to treat a new album!  :D  :)  8)

I was happy with the concert I saw in 2006. While I did think about going again this year, one look at the stage & set-up made me glad I didn't. They had seats in front of the stage, so when you had a "standing ticket" there was this seated area between you and the stage. Yuk!  :P
In 2006 they had a "center stage" in midst of the arena, when we arrived I'd wondered "what is this?", we stayed around there and the reward was: we got to see them quite close!  :D
