After doing first European concerts as a very special guest for Gotthard in Russia and Spain they took a little break. On a very special day, 31.10.2012 (Halloween) they started their German tour with an already sold-out concert in Filderstadt. Unisonic played 65 minutes and Gotthard 80 more or less.
The first location in Germany was in Filderstadt on 31. October 2012.
Basti commented: Kiske after 40 minutes: “German crowd is good but different. They wake up now” 🙂 And really, show is absolutely awesome and Kiske in top shape. The guy on my side : “better than on CD!”
A nice review of the concert done by Mathias:” As an Helloween fan from the very beginning and as a constant silent companion of the most unique voice that has ever headed to the metal universe, the reunion between Kiske and Hansen was a revelation.
Together with three more metal / rock stalwarts the new band was on the Unisonic World Tour this year. After concerts in the largest cities of the world it has to be the day of the days (Halloween aka 31.10.2012) when Unisonic heads the navel of the rock world, Filderstadt nearby Stuttgart. The opener of Gotthard Unisonic played a unique 65 minutes in the sold out Filharmonie.
If you had to describe the show, then the following terms would be fixed immediately. Bombastic drums and bass on songs like “We Rise” and “King for a Day”, unforgettable heavy riffs on songs like “Unisonic, My Sanctuary or Never too late” and a voice that plays with sound and dynamics in its own league. Catchy melodies (Over the rainbow, and the Helloween-Songs “Future World” “I Want out”) and Kiske’s dry comments regarding the German public, such as “Yes, it’s always nice to realize that you are in Germany. Here is first wait what happens.”
But Hansen let himself no slouch. He called the audience to lay chips and the TV-remote aside and start screaming. And yes … After the Unisonic ballads “No one ever sees me” and “Over the Rainbow” (with a touch of Deep Purple) the audience starts playing its vocal muscles.”
King for a Day
Mathias Engel and Basti did a photo album of Unisonic show in Filderstadt (thanks for sharing it with the fanclub :):
