Wed 2 Apr – Down

Stuttgart, Germany, 2nd April 08, 8:00 pm :
A well-filled club in the capital of Baden-Württemberg,
plenty of metalheads stand in front of the stage on which a 1-hour tour video-diary by Down is shown. Funny scenes on tour mixed with classic live-performances of metal/rock giants like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath entertain the crowd. At the end of the video the music clip of the song "On March The Saints" is played, heating up the audience and preparing it for DOWN. Couple of minutes past 9 pm Phil, Pepper, Kirk, Rex and Jimmy enter the stage and mark the beginning of one hell of a night! "A night to remember". The setlist mostly contained songs of the third album, second mostly songs from the first album (which i personally prefer) and the way Phil or the whole band interacted and animated the fans was just awesome and unique! "Ok, we're gonna play this song, but remember: If we fuck up this one, it's totally Jimmy's fault. And if we fuck up the vocals, it's also Jimmy's fault!" And that was just one example. The fact that Rex and Jimmy started smoking cigarettes (or perhaps joints?!) on stage while playing was also a quite nice moment ;). The vibe and the mood became better and better the longer Down played. The setlist contained following songs (without any particular order) The songs I can remember are:

In the Thrall of It All
Eyes of the South
Ghosts Along the Mississippi
Three Suns and One Star
New Orleans Is a Dying Whore
Stone the Crow
Bury Me in Smoke
The Path
Beneath the Tides
Learn From This Mistake
Lysergik Funeral Procession

After two great hours Down says goodbye to the crowd and leaves the stage with applause from almost the entire club. This was a truly great evening and I'm quite sure that they gonna visit Stuttgart or the surrounding area again in the future. And I'm already looking forward to it!
