Should be a good gig....

I hope so! Will you come down to south Germany? If so, let me know.
I'll show you a nice pub where you can buy me a beer...  ;D

I'm going to the Stuttgart gig :).  Watching TV Smith and the Bored Teenagers with all the German beer I can drink could be one of the best days I'll ever have.

Hey, this is close to becoming a semi-official TUTS meeting!!! Ilove (not very active in the forum any more) & husband should be there. I'll ask Klaus (not very active, even though he's Admin) if he might be going (if he'll be in Augsburg, it won't be too far)...  :D

Good to see the setlist when I went online this morning!  8)
(Yeah I saw how you nicked it from the stage, Rob.)
It was great to meet some new & old friends last night!

We had a very nice fan meeting (Phil, Jackie, Rob-C and me) at the Amadeus. Then we went over to the venue, still a few minutes until official "doors open", but TV came out to say hello, plus I got to meet Sally for the first time.
Inside, Ilove & Wolfgang were already there (Phil was able to make his "surprise appearance"). Later, I met more familiar faces (from many other TV shows, but I'd forgotten most of the names) incl. Jonathan, plus also an acquaintance from my hometown (who works in Stuttgart - apparently he saw TV 15 years ago with DTH on the mountain "Zugspitze"!).
Support band "Autoramas" from Brazil were pretty good, playing some sort of "garage rock".

TV & the Bored Teenagers played their set without a break (as they often do), featuring Adverts classics as well as most songs from "Useless". I used earplugs, which filtered out some "noise", but the vocals did sound very clear (gotta say TV sings these songs perfectly!) and I still could hear the other instruments - BB of course is a great bass player; the band played the songs very close to how they sounded on "Useless" (the album).
Highlights for me: Safety In Numbers, Replay & Delete, Television's Over, My String Will Snap...
Very good to hear a new song in the encores ("No Control")!!

The club was pretty full on a Wednesday night - as in previous years it proves TV's fanbase in Stuttgart has grown!  8)

Took a few photos with the TUTS (my gig photos are a blur, as usual - maybe I can find one or two which are ok), chatted a bit, said good-bye and then went home via train & car (arrived after 1am)...

Most photos I took turned out quite blurry (no matter if I use flash or not), hence "TV & The Blurred Teenagers":
