Santa opened the show. Many thanks to Julia for sending the setlist.
According to Jan, there was also a “working setlist” (image thanks to Jan) for this show with significant differences from what was actually played. While there were several substitutions, the most significant one was that the debut of “Digital Ghost” was a possible candidate for the first encore. The alternative was “Take To The Sky” but, as it turned out, she opted for “General Joy” in the end.
Act I (Santa)
Body & Soul
My Posse Can Do
You Can Bring Your Dog
costume change (Professional Widow Remix)
Act II (Tori)
She did a GREAT improv in Seaside about too many young people that already died.
Playboy Mommy was HEAVEN.
But well..the whole show was just great…there was so much energy..and you could really see that Tori enjoyed herself, she talked to the audience quit a bit. She said that we are one of the best audiences in the world and that she really likes to tour in Germany
Before Mr. Zebra, she did a funny improv about the lights going on too early, as she was taking the chewing gum out of her mouth.
First of all, I have to mention the great supporting act. There were really energetic and took the roof off that place! Sadly I didn’t catch their name, so if anyone remembers please submit it here.
Tori came out at 9p.m. wearing said red dress and the white wig. Absolutely gorgeous! Body & Soul was a great opener. It’s fun to see her act along as she interprets Santa’s songs.
Dragon was divine. She put so much emotion in it.
After a short break, she came back with her Tori wig and a golden Leopard suit. Right before she was about to do the the solo part, the lights came on too early and caught her eating chewing gum. She then sang quite the lengthy song with lyrics along the lines of “The lights came on. Alles klar. Now you know my secret.”
Playboy Mommy and Siren were nice surprises.
Then two encores with Hey Jupiter as last song. People had almost taken the stage by then and lined up right in front of the scene. Tori told the audience before that two of her friends were there that night and she later grabbed the hands of someone in the front row with a biiiiig smile on her face. Very cute.
Awesome, energetic, hot, draining. Tori gave her all and we took it.
Tori seemed full of energy tonight, and looked like she was really enjoying herself. She smiled and flirted a lot with the audience.
This was my first show on this tour, and after reading some reviews here from other shows where she according to some people seemed “cold”, I was curious to see the show. And I must say, this was one of the best concerts I have experienced with Tori! I think it is safe to say that she made us all very happy!
Her inprov. about the lights coming on was soo funny, and her voice sounded really good (the improv was accapella)
Also,the M&G was very relaxed, Tori was really taking a lot of time to talk to us, and to take pictures.
It’s the first Tori’s concert for me and I was astonished! She renders so much more live… my preference for the setlist goes to Amber Waves, the song is beautiful but yesterday was really wonderful. And I was surprised when I understood that she just improvised the small song after the chewing gum story… her talent is unbelievable.
For Rico: the support was not a band, just the singer, Seth Lakeman whose last album, Kitty Jay, was sold outside the music hall. Really cute.
What a wonderful day!
The m&g was so amazing. Last time in Hamburg she didn't really have time for us. She only stayed for like 4 minutes and wasn't allowed to sign anything and take pictures with fans. This time she seemed so relaxed and warm and open. She took the time to have a little chat with everyone. I got my picture and I was able to tell her a few things.
The concert was the bomb!! Santa was so full of energy and very very sexy, just breathtaking. What a dress! Her voice was great, her body language was very strong and she improvised several times. I´m so glad the Hammond was there as well, that baby sounded sexy as always. It even made me like General Joy. I could read a few songs on Tori´s hand during the m&g when I requested Upside Down. She played Mr. Zebra and Playboy Mommy on request.
Code Red and Precious Things were my personal highlights. So energetic. Tori and the guys are perfect!
I came straight from the airport to the venue at 6pm, I was let in, and virtually walked into the soundcheck. I managed to catch the last two songs: Playboy Mommy and General Joy (which I also “taped” from behind the side door).
I asked a stagehand if he could pass on a CD for Tori to autograph, but her bodyguard(?), a big black guy, said no.
I haven’t seen Tori since Roskilde 98, so I didn’t know what to expect of the show. I agree with all above, the atmosphere was very good. Many songs were quite extended, so the total playing time came to 2h10m.
The songs that really made my night were Secret Spell, Playboy Mommy, Code Red, Hey Jupiter (loong extended).
I sat close to the soundboard, and believe I saw Mark, wearing a blue “cloud” T-shirt. There were also two TV teams present, ZDF with a big professional 2-camera setup, and something called Tide TV, with a smaller videocam.
The light technician gave me an ALTERNATIVE working setlist, that must have been written earlier that day.
Very interesting to see what was cancelled, perhaps they play the omitted songs later during the tour instead?!
After the gig, about 20 of us stood behind the venue waiting for Tori to come out. But the big black bodyguard appeared around midnight, told everybody to back off, while he and bouncers escorted her to the coach, just waving and saying hello.
According to a German bouncer, the M&G earlier today had lasted for 45 minutes(!) with Tori chatting and signing a lot, so “if we missed the opportunity, it’s our own fault!.
It was my only gig for this tour, and I don’t regret travelling down from Stockholm!
