Women in Black

Judas Priest - what a weekend ... Finally I could "visit and hear" my birthday gift, which was given to me by Victoria: front stage tickets! Chef, thank you for letting Victoria out of the sweet chains of patisserie for this special event!

Victoria and I went to the concert hall nearby. Lucky me, Stadthalle is just around the corner. We were waiting in a long, very long queue with other mad people. I bet there were 75 % male fans. Especially this older guys, which all were there to revive their youth again. I also bet 75 % of the male visitors were over 60 years old. Only very few of them came with their wifes. Funny thing, the younger visitors – between 16 and 35 years – are a complete different sort of fans as the huge amount of visitors at Nova Rock (around 220.000 crazy people between 12 and at least 80). Maybe they are just a minority and therefore not such a memorable disturbance among the mass of "normal" metalheads.

Battle Beast and Accept (I got a virus alert from the band website, therefore a wikipedia link) played to warm up the audience. Btw, it had all evening 30°C outside – no warm up necessary. I thought all day long, I should fire up the back oven in our kitchen to cool the air down! Inside of the big concert hall should have been air condition - was there an air-condition?! Jeez, we couldn’t drink as fast as we sweat it out again. At least OUR (!) “sweat-smell-protection” did work just fine. Victoria had to hold me back, because I wanted to offer the guy right in front of us two “Fisherman's Friend” – this strong as hell menthol lozenges. I was going to ask him to put one in each of his armpits. I would have also paid for a beer, if he would have promised to not lift is arms up ever again. Let’s sum it up: his smell was as loud as all three metal bands together. A memorable evening – of course mainly because of the music!

I almost didn’t buy something from the fan merchandise. Women have 26 % less income, they get 43 % less retirement money and they have to pay 5 € more for the same T-shirt (if there are any T-shirts for women available ...)? Hey, metal boyzzz – all of you could do better than that!

Nevertheless I bought the last CD of Battle Beast - a good investment for the next 1.000 km on the highway to hell.

If you ask, why I didn't post pictures of the concert: There are copyrights and there were flying beakers (with beer in it!!!).

Btw the skeleton is glowing green in the dark an dit ws my handbag in the first place - but I'm such a gooood mother ...

Half of the line - from this direction  - at least three more lines from the other side!

Judas Priest - that's a blast from the past. I didn't even know they were still together. This probably won't mean much to you but Rob Halford's broad West Brom accent is hugely hilarious to any English person who comes from anywhere other than the West Midlands... it REALLY doesn't fit with the hard rock image grinning

Yes, it was a blast of the past - sometimes the past should stay in the past. smile
The accent is - something between strange and horrible  - but I should be the last person to talk about accents ...
