24hrs later im still shaking,
Im speechless, been waiting many years to see them live (no idea why I didnt bother travelling abroad to see them), I was not disappointed.
Great view of an amazing spectacle from Block B (I was in the last row so didn't interrupt anyone with my camera)

RE my previous post...
"Face meltingly good"?
"Jaw droppingly good"???
They sing in German FFS!!
I was joking! It looked fantantastic.
Been a fan since I 1st heard them and it was beyond all I could have asked for! I love Flake the nutter but the videos and live dvd's do no justice to the little stuff he does during the gigs...an absolute legend. Truly an epic gig!!!!
btw: anybody see when Till bopped Pauls mic? Funny sh*t
As a German I don't mind them singing in German
On a side note some of their lyrics are a bit disturbing but nevermind.
Loads of photos from the pit here guys and gals
I was a little bit disappointed in the gig at the start as I wanted a bit of a mosh. There didn't seem to be anyone moshing due to the fact that half the people seemed busy taking bad photos on their camera phones, which I don't understand. Why can they not just be in the moment? Any moshing that started was soon stopped by 'mosh police'.
But....the fact that I couldn't mosh meant I could watch the show, which was awesome (in the truest sense of the word). They used more firepower than was deployed in the last two gulf wars, and it wasn't just for some songs, or just at the end of the song, it was constant. Those guys must be doused in some flame retartant chemicals (especially Till Lindeman, who stood under a hail of sparks for a full minute at one point). I thought they would finish with Engel and the wing suit (shooting flames...what else?). But instead they ended on a humourous note by playing 'Pussy' and shooting foam from a c**k cannon. Obviously they don' take themselves too seriously.
Incredible performance and an astonishing show. I hope we gave them enough of a reception so they will return.
(Oh yeah, and Christian Lorenz playing keyboard on a treadmill, hilarious!)
^---- You must not have been in the right area then. I was slight left, bit out, but we had several, several mosh pits going. Im still sore from it! The mosh police didnt stop us at all either.
Keyboardist must be the fittest musician going, he never stopped on that thing!
Goddamn it! Must look harder next time. I had a mini-mosh with this aul lad and his son but the mosh police came almost instantly
I was in the 3rd 4th row, directly in front of Till. the heat was incredible every time the flames started. I was trying to get my camera going for a pic of the wings and I felt the blast of the heat before I saw the flames. Thank god the medics were passing water through the crowd. It was brilliant being that close tho, got covered in glitter and foam from everything. Best concert Ever! Cant wait 4 them to come back! Btw, thanks for the pics. My camera just kept whiting out cos of the flames.
What do u mean bopped his mic? At what point?
He headbutted Paul's mic stand half way through!
My fav part was when Flake got annoyed and kicked Til, who then turned around during feuer frei and pointed his finger saying "BANG! BANG!"
I cant remember which song it was...but Till walked over to Pauls mic stand, looked directly at it and floored it with a headbutt! We were seated so we had a clear view of the whole thing and everybody around us just burst out laughing.
When did the wings come out? Don't rightly remember that bit.
During Engel, for most of the song
