Hello dear Fools Garden fan,
after two months of abstinence, it's time again for a little update from Foolsoffice.
The latest two months have been in the sign of concerts. From the unplugged concert with only 20 people in Erpfenhausen through Barcellona to Russia and the mega event in Schalke with Pur, we've experienced everything that can vibrate the soul of a musician.
First of all the most important thing. The new album is coming to life. The songs have been all written, and mostly recorded, so we can suppose a release at the beginning of the next year. We cannot give an exact date, because we have to clarify everything regarding promotion, distribution etc... At the moment we can say to you that we are superhappy about the result we got till now. It will be a very good album with very much fresh energy and really good songs. A first tasting has been already given two weeks ago at the German fanclub party. As said, the reaction was great and we were very pleased of it. Let yourself be surprised. It's coming soon.
The German fanclub party in Wuppertal at `Haus Marianne`!
It happened! The name of the locality could make you think about something weird, but what was inside didn't need to be hidden. First of all the food deserved the long travel to Wuppertal. There was a very good buffet and moreover it was a completely successful evening.
From a contest to a spontaneous unplugged session, to a video of our travel to russia until a present given to each person as a live DVD of a concert in Essen.
Concerning that, once more a big thanks to everybody who was there and most of all to Ulla, Rainer and Anja, who kindly organized this evening. You are great!
By the way, Ulla and Rainer will run by now the German fanclub together with Anja.
As said at the beginning: we left behind us a lot of concerts and one dream of us, chased for long time, finally became true: we played in Russia! A concert in the legendary "16 Tons" club in Moscow and the day after as headliner at Rock & Reggae Festival, which has been repeated in St. Petersburg. It was wonderful. The people there really knew almost each song, and, like last year in Lithuania for "Dreaming", "Closer" was a hit.
Unbelievable, a fantastic sensation, when you begin to play a song and everybody stop and recognize it.
PUR Classics / Schalke
As soon as we came back fromRussia Volker and I had to go to the rehearsal in Bietigheim for the mega event in Schalke, where the guys of PUR <http://www.pur.de/> invited us as guests. An invitation that we were very happy to accept.
The rehearsal took place in complete relax and after a week the event took place. From September 2nd to 4th we were on the stage of this amazing arena. 70000 people - even if they didn't come for us - received us with big applauses and sang along Lemon Tree with a big voice. Then we played two songs of PUR (friends; I got drunk for you) and we had to leave again the stage, unfortunately. In the last evening everything was very fast, because after the end we were leaded by the police to Dortmund, where Dirk, Gabriel and Claus and the audience was already waiting for us. Even if there weren't so many people as in Gelsenkirchen, it was anyway very nice. Thanks Dortmund!
Concerning Schalke, we still have to remember that we met there an unbelievably nice colleague: Heinz Rudolf Kunze, a nice person with wonderful songs and a beautiful voice. HRK must be greeted!
By the way, from the concert in Schalke a 60-minutes special will be broadcasted on Sat.1 on November 20th at 11.30 p.m.
