Singer Farin Urlaub should actually each as the frontman of the fun-punk rock pop band „The doctors“ be known. Doctors are cool, were always cool and will probably remain cool even in old age. Because doctors embody uncompromising pleasure principle: Unconditionally do, was man tun will! Earlier, it was a central decision: Either you stand in the camp of humorless, proletarian, dull, simple, Altbier and straight Toten Hosen or just with the humorous, twisted, complex, playful and fun physicians.

A black curtain blocking the view to the stage, against 20:15 Clock was heard then how the guitar was plugged in and a minute later began the Concert. With a bang the black curtain fell down and stood behind Farin already and put right with a Firecracker song from his latest album „Fascination Space“ the. The Zurich audience was from the beginning very text safe and brought the hall unfortunately only temporarily properly cook. Compared to the, what one was normally accustomed to Farin Urlaub or doctors concerts / is, was it a rather quieter concerts, what was clearly the audience, that was mixed amazing.

Prevails at a Doctors concert rather clownish anarchy, can be the appearance of the complex WADE 457 very well described with the image of a big band orchestra full of dynamite: A punchy brass Riege on the left, great background singers on the right and in the center of Farin Urlaub including Amazons court, consisting of guitarist Nesrin „Nessie“ Sirinoglu, Bassist and drummer Cindia Kruger Rachel Rep.

And not just because of the length of the show, but also because of the atmosphere and Farina Gags, Sayings and Alber estates. Most of the evening was at those moments, where Farin the hits of the first two solo albums „Finally Holidays“ and „At the end of the sun“ rummaged out.

After more than two hours, the audience was made, Farin also. Thus, he said goodbye – not with Abschiedslied, he had already played – by calling to mind „ten“ played. Who knows Farin Urlaub, weiss, what that meant for the weary viewers: Again power until absolute exhaustion. Farin knows because no mercy. He counted to ten, Then he wanted to see us jump. And we jumped. Sovereign completed the Berlin along with his racing team of Rocks after two addition blocks of three songs at the concert, which caused sweaty body for each lot. The fans in the complex was an entertaining, commanded crunchy rock concert with plenty of interaction and good humor on all sides. But not only the main actor the Punkattitüden seem conditioned gradually to wane by the increasingly Age. The audience has become tamer. A Concert, the determined will all remain in very good memory. The band was in high spirits, the classic rock instrumentation with the ladies – Nessie, Rachel and Cindia – in the best of hands and the men „Winds“ care for the ska-component. A sweaty show, the – believe it or not – comprised thirty songs and had a little time to wind down. Just outside the door of the parked tour bus, brought the band subsequently to Saarbruecken.
