Hello, Im from Munich in Bavaria, South of Germany. A few days ago at the gig from Simple Minds in Munich I met a guy with a Ultravox Rage in Eden Logo-Shirt. I talked to him and was informed about the reunion and the gig in Germany.
Oh my God!! What for great news for me and my friends. So now Im here with you people sharing my enthusiasm. Absolutely great.
Im a Ultravox enthusiastic since the Rage in Eden Album. Which I bougt as first Ultravox record. It was and still is the music of my live. Especially the marvellous voice of Midge. I saw Ultravox live twice in Munich while they were touring with the Lament and the U-Vox-Album. Since then it was only Midge who was touring. Once there was Billy Currie with some Solo Projects. The opportunity to see them live again in Germany is a chance of a lifetime for me.
Greetings to all from Munich

Welcome Bavarianvox, welcome I am Duncan, welcome to the forum, I hope you find this to your amusement as I found new friends & great humour in this site. Please note, that there is a lot of joking & teasing in this site and is all meant as fun, but in some cases it is easy to pick someone up wrong because you cannot see their face or hear their voice. I promise you it definitely will be meant as humour and not insult. excitedEnjoy yourself

Hi Carol and all others.
Im back to Munich from Duisburg. Right beside me stands my new Ultravox-Mug. Filled with fresh coffee and helping me to get my thoughts together about the concert yesterday. I promised you a short review. So lets go. Due to much "Altbier" in Duesseldorf I missed the Voxgate before the show. I think the concert was almost sold out and the people were a nice crowd of die hard Ultravox-Fans from everywhere. I met some fans from Milano in Italy and Belgium and the rest fo Germany. The theatre was definitely no place for rock concerts because there was no standing room.
You were on your seat until the end of the show. But to our surprise Midge made an announcement three songs before the end and an ethusastic bunch of people rushed in front of the stage me inclusive!! So close to Chriss and his cool grey bass that he was playing I finally saw the show ending with The Voice. Pure energy.
They played 18 Songs. I can post the songlist if needed. The sound was good but the escpecially the bass and the guitar and the voice of midge had not the power that you expect. Maybe due to the "Opera-Theatre" and its technic. But overall a very good show. And you could see that they had fun playing!! The fans were very enthusiasic escpecially as mentioned before the crowed rushed in front of the stage. It was unbelievable to see Warren Cann on drums again. The same with Chriss Cross. He played the piano so cool with one hand in his pocket of his trouser. Great Evening.
DREAM CAME TRUE.
woohoo
Greetins to all

PS.: But the greatest surprise were the flyers at the foyer were the new tour dates for Germany were announced !! And Munich is first next year! I defintely join or organise the Voxgate in Munich. CU BavarianVox

ciao Bavarianvox,
I'm quite new to the forum myself, but here's a huge welcome to you!!!

I was in Duisburg and it was really fantastic, sooooo perfect! I think I could be one of the Italian fans you met just after the gig: I'm actually from Bergamo, but if you're not a RyanAir flyer you might not know my beautiful town!
My friend is from Milano and Bergamo is quite close! smile

Ciaooo!

Ciao to Bergamo !!
I think I was one of the guys that you and your friend met before the concert. Remember. We met at this street lamp. Your friend told me that he is coming from Milano and could not get an interview. Its nice that you remember us guys from Monaco di Bavaria. Mille grazie.
Ciao to Bella Italia


I think we met here.

Ciao Bavarianvox,
from what you wrote I do not think we actually met (and I have no idea of where this street lamp is) I was with a female friend, so you must have met somebody else...then there must have been other Italians at Duisburg... I heard no Italian being spoken before or after the gig...
Now I really wonder who this Italian couple are...

But we'll hopefully meet at the next gig, Germany or the UK... smile better if a date before April (seems so far now, but now I'm really greedy... I just went to two Ultravox gigs in a row and this is soooo much more than I got in the last 25 years...)

Hi Laurita, BavarianVox. Looks like you witnessed a storming gig!

The Italian couple are good friends of mine, he's a contributor of an influential Italian music web magazine. We met some days ago (he brought me a wonderful "RIE-horses" t-shirt from Duisburg) and he told me they met a very nice Bavarian bloke ;-)

Laurita, are you on MySpace or Facebook? It's always nice to meet new UV fans. You can find me on www.facebook.com/luca.dassi

Ciao,
Luca

Ciao Luca,
no I'm not on MySpace or Facebook...
But I'm trying to find a way to publish some of the picts I took at the Duisburg and Lokeren gigs (a photo-sharing site like Photobucket or jalbum) so hopefully when I sort this out I'll be able to post some links in the forum. Any advise on this topic is very very welcome!
The gigs were absolutely brilliant.
By the way, did your friend write anything about the Ultravox reunion in the web magazine? It could be interesting to read.

Sure, he wrote a thorough live report (only in Italian). You can read it at http://www.ondarock.it/livereport/2009_ultravox.htm

Hello all of you,
that was a great show yesterday here in Munich. The Band was touched by the enthusiasm of the crowd.
The first part of the show containded the more slowly songs. As for the second and danceable part the atmosphere heigtened and Ultravox rocked Munich.
I was especially pleased to hear White China again.
Everyone was happy to be able to seeing them to perform the old songs again. You could see that in the eyes of the people. Great moments as I looked around. Thank you ULTRAVOX. And after the last song you could see the happiness in their eyes upon the stage too as they finished their show. GREAT.

Servus BavarianVox! You're right, I'm not Bavarian, I'm a Scot but have been living here for the last three years.

We're still buzzing from the concert! We were about 5 rows back on the left, pretty close, but we didn't run up at the end (bah! should have!)What an evening. I'm so glad I got to see them at least once in my life.

Have you seen any other good bands here in Munich?

liebe Gruesse,

Kalinka
