Tour Of The Universe - Tour Blog

Dusseldorf - February 26th

From one extreme to the other. Horsens = 4500. Dusseldorf = at least ten times that. Wow, this place is big. Wow, the stage is big. Wow, the crowd is big. It's surreal how different tonight's gig was, compared to Horsens. What it may have lacked in intimacy, it more than made up for with energy and the shear grandure of the whole thing.

A great place to finish off what started as a stadium tour. A vast stadium gig, without all the tedious mucking about with daylight, rain and what not.

The crowd was amazing last night. The wave got a little emotional for pretty much everyone I think. Truly awesome.

After the gig, the band, crew, family and friends had their end-of-tour party - complete with karaeokee bar and all. Some electrifying performances, I tell ya. Joe (Fletcher's son) played host to what quickly became a thoroughly amusing night. Selected highlights included Douglas McCarthy and Peter Gordeno doing a hauntingly bromantic rendition of the classic "I Got You Under My Skin", Jez Webb's medley of Elvis' "Jailhouse Rock" and Nitzer Ebb's "Payroll", Peter G. (again) and Grainne Fletcher doing "Islands In The Stream" and Martin and Viva Gore doing... can't remember right now, but it was funny. Rumours of a love-duet between Martin and Jez are circulating, but must've happened after I left. I'll ask around to get that confirmed and get back to you on the blog for Dusseldorf part deux - the final show!
