Hm, does the t-shirt suggest there will be a remastered "Gen Y" soon?  ;)

TV & UK Subs (again) in Stuttgart (again):
After I'd missed the last few tours 2015/16 (snow etc.), this time I was determined to make it!

Seeing the situation for parking the car in Stuttgart is not too easy these days, I decide to go for a different way: I steer the car into a "park&ride" thing in Degerloch (part of town, which is above the "basin" Stuttgart itself is located in) and hop on the "UBahn" into town (it is very comfortable that the club "Universum" is right next to the station "Charlottenplatz"). Although I think I'm early, there are already a lot of people inside the club! I look around, after a while I meet Helmut (guitarist from The Lennons and The Skeletons out of Pforzheim, both of which had been support to TV & UK Subs in recent years). Later I find Ilona, Wolfgang and TV at the merch desk!  8)

Club is pretty full by the time TV goes on stage. I do not take notes during the show, here is a rough setlist (possibly not in correct order, but better than nothing): Only One Flavour, No Time To Be 21, No Control, Keys to the world, My String Will Snap, I Delete, Expensive Being Poor, Immortal Rich, Lion & the lamb, Land of the overdose, Pushed Again, Gen Y, GGE, Bored Teenagers, One Chord Wonders. Encore: Runaway Train Driver.

Three new songs, the audience welcome these (almost) as much as the old classics. What surprises me, at the start of GGE there is quite a "buzz" in the air, which I hadn't expected (me being "hard-boiled" after 50+ TV gigs) and gives me the goose bumps! A big cheer goes up after OCW, which results in one encore.
I can see quite a few faces I think I'd seen before at TV gigs, some singing along etc. Stuttgart is slowly becoming TV town!  8)

UK Subs are quite loud (as usual). New guitarist sounds like he does his job well. I listen to most of the set from way behind near the merch desk, where I also chat with TV later. We talk about his "problem": when he has a new album out, he's already written new songs and then plays them instead of the album songs...  ;)
Apparently people still like to buy "I Delete", while "CITL" or "ITAOME" aren't the big sellers (look at the setlists and you can guess why...).

After UK Subs are done, I say good-bye and head over to the UBahn, while I'm waiting for my train I scribble down a setlist as best as I can remember. I'm quite surprised it's only 11.35pm! Which means I'm home before 1am, not bad.  :)

Many thanks for the travel report Uli! Honestly, are you after Jeremy Clarkson's job?

Only serious!

Thanks for the review and an insight into Tim's 'problem'...

The only solution I can think of is that everyone should buy all of his albums!

Well I'd love to get paid for travelling from time to time!  :)
Not every day, but maybe on the weekend...

Post #9333 seemed good for a gig review.  ;D

And who in their right mind booked TV for the "Wacken Festival" (heavy metal!!!)?????  :o

Spannend, aber warum nicht, TV Smith vor 85.000 Heavy-Metal-Fans! Die sollen auch mal etwas "Anständiges" zu hören bekommen. ;)

Ja, TV sucht die Herausforderung...

TV's looking for challenge playing to metal fans at Wacken (well he told me he doesn't really wanna celebrate "40 years of punk").

If you see TV at this merch desk, say: "one of each please".  ;D

Oberhausen was weird, many People leaved after TV. I never saw this. Normaly its the other Way. People come during the TV Gig.

Appeldorn was surprisly full, when i arrived (and i was pretty late) there were just like 10 people. When TV Starts it was around 60, when UK Subs starts it was 120-130 around. Its good for the Netherlands. The Club was way smaller then the Oberhausen one

(sorry, delay of setlists, and today its an early gig)
Welcome to the Chelsea Girl Store!
