Brigitte commented about the show: “The concert location of Airport Obertraubling was a very nice location designed like an Airport. The concert hall itself was smaller than at previous shows, but was really filled in the end.
Michael Kiske still has his flu, but he sang good despite this handicap. There was a little confusion at the beginning and Kiske didn’t find the entrance to the stage. Another funny thing was that Kiske wanted to drink something before he started ‘March of Time’, but the band didn’t notice that he was not ready yet and just started playing. It was the best reactions to Kiske on this evening and always Kiske, Kiske shoutings during the songs. Kiske even sad, sadly it is over now and that he is only allowed to sing 3 songs. He really enjoyed the audience.
The setlist did not change from Bochum, with one little exception, Kiske did not participate in ‘Silent Night’ this time, for sure to have some more resting for his voice for the final show.”
