Wacken Open Air XXIV

Wacken (Germany)

(Pentax K-5 with Sigma AF 70-200mm 2.8 EX DC APO HSM II)

Like nearly each year, also this time a visit at the self-proclaimed "King Of Heimorgel" may not be missing. Wildly thrown together a colorful bouquet of great classics in a very unconventional interpretation was presented like Rammstein's "Engel" or Scooter's "Maria (I Like It Loud"). For this no large show on stage was mounted. Center of all was the master of keys itself and his instrument. This was only displaced several times on stage to allow the audience another perspective on the artist. Some additionally preserved the honour to dance on stage with Mambo Kurt and his lovely trainee.
Overall just the right portion of trash to let a wonderful day die away.
