It was just him singing & playing piano. He played everything from blues, rock 'n' roll, soul ... you name it. For the last hour or so of his set he took requests from the audience and just played whatever we asked for.

I chatted with him after the show and he's an extremely friendly guy. I'd certainly pay to see him again.

I thought it was great, althought the others who were with me, who'd all seen the show many times before said it was one of the worst they'd seen, in comparison with earlier productions in Hamburg and Stuttgart.

I'm talking about people who have seen the show lots of times, with various different companies, in various different cities. They noticed little changes that have been made - remember it opened 10 years ago in Vienna, and has played in Stuttgart and Hamburg. There've been a few different Graf von Krolocks, Sarahs, Alfreds etc. There have also been prductions in Hungary and Japan, although I don't think any of the group I went with have seen the latter. These last two shows may not have been the best they've seen, but at least they all agreed on one thing: it wasn't as bad as the New York incarnation (thank God!)

I personally thoroughly enjoyed it. The only niggle I had was that sound wasn't loud enough for my taste, and I was sat right at the front! It's all academic now, though, as the show has now closed in Berlin. Next production will be in Oberhausen, starting in November, with a different cast. No word yet on who will be the principals, but apparently Tomas Borchert, who was 1st Krolock in Berlin is not due to appear as he's performing in another show at the time the new production is due to open. But I'd definitely recommend seeing it if you can. I'll never forget the experience!

Went to see Lloyd Cole last night. He did a great accoustic set. Vary laid back. Perfect for a Friday night after a week of madness in the office

While Meat was singing his heart out in the Wembley Arena in London on Friday May 25th 2007 I saw:

Band: De Dijk (Dutch Rock band)
Place: Bibelot, Dordrecht, The Netherlands.

One of the best shows I've ever seen and I was in good company back then.
Standing front row as usual....



I'm scheduled to see Bruce Springsteen in May but I have to say I have no real desire to see anymore shows at this stage which is very strange for me.
