following articles were published a few days after the Oldie
night in Northeim:
is a fan-paradise
music and nice spring-weather: 3500 people were
fascinated by the second Oldie-festival in Northeim at
The fans really liked the performances of the 45 minutes
long performances of the old stars; they also liked the
fantastic atmosphere at the open air arena. And the nice

They performed lots of former number-one-hits:
"Zabadak" with Dave Dee", "Sugar Baby
Love" with the Rubettes" and "Baby Come
Back" with the Equals. Top-act were Slade with hits
like "Far Far Away". The surprise of the show

"SAILOR" played as fresh as at the beginning of
their career - the best musical act.
NORTHEIM - Warm
temperatures and nice music from the good old days - that was
available for 3500 people who made their way to the idyllic
"Waldbühne" in Northeim in order to see the second
(...) Afterwards SAILOR performed and cared for a great
mood and many joyful expressions on the faces with songs like
"Girls Girls Girls".
