A concert review by Katrin Wagner:

Concert number 69...
Karsten and I are joined by our friend Christel on Saturday morning. She has already driven for almost 3 hours from her hometown Duisburg, so that I take over the driving duties to Regensburg with my poor old car. Today's a very special show: it will be the first SAILOR concert in Germany after Henry's return to the band.
After a long and tiring drive we arrive in Regensburg at 4.30 pm and check in at our hotel. Just in that moment we bump into Phil and Henry who return from the soundcheck at the nearby venue.
While the four SAILORs meet at the restaurant, we are joined by fan Rolf and his wife Marita to talk and pass the time until the beginning of the concert. A little later, Grant, Henry and Phil decide to have some hours of sleep, while Peter stays with us to talk and have a few drinks.
The band is a little shocked at first, because the show doesn't take place in a normal concert hall but in a shopping centre. There are two stages - one at each end of the big building. As we arrive in front of the stage on the left, where SAILOR are going to perform, we are fortunately able to get straight to the front, as most people are now watching the Spencer Davis Group at the other end of the building. The stage is very small so that there is just enough space for the four SAILORs and the Nickelodeon.
When the show is just about to start we notice that the Nickelodeon is on stage and ready for the show – but without any side panels. It turns out that - according to new roadie Mark - there has been no chance to get through the crowd to put these on the Nickelodeon from the mixing desk just before the show, so that the "Nick" has to stay like this for the show.

In the meantime the place is full of enthusiastic people again, all waiting for SAILOR in front of the stage and all around it as well as on the first floor of the shopping centre. The host of the show wants to announce SAILOR, but they are not there yet. Instead, he asks the audience some questions to cover the gap and finds out that there are some people who have travelled very far: from Kassel and Duisburg. Suddenly I find myself being pulled up on stage by the host, asking my why such a young person like me travels so far to see SAILOR etc. Later Karsten has to go up on stage as well to sing a part of "A Glass Of Champagne" and - as SAILOR are still not ready yet - the whole announcement of poor host Wolfgang takes about 20 minutes.
SAILOR finally start their show at about 11.40 pm with a marvellous set, received by a very enthusiastic audience. Peter, Grant, Henry and Phil are in a great mood and the show has some very funny moments (Peter: "I can't sing, I've got beer up my nose") ;-). The set includes a few surprises like "Blame It On The Soft Spot" which we have heard on many recent occasions but only once in our lives with Henry at a concert in January 1997!
Highlight at the end is - of course - the famous "Full Monty" which is not very easy to do on this small stage.
After the show SAILOR stay to sign autographs and sell CDs and DVDs. In the meantime many people join us to say that they are really impressed by SAILOR's show tonight and especially by captain Peter who - according to many fans around us - is simply marvellous! ;-)
Later we briefly meet the boys at the hotel again, before everyone finally goes to bed at about 3 am.
At 6.45 am SAILOR have to leave Regensburg again to drive to Berlin for a TV show recording of "Die Hitgiganten" for German SAT1 television. So, Karsten, Christel and I also get up early to say goodbye to the SAILORs before we also drive back home again...

A concert review by Rolf Breitling:

Excited as ever we drove to Regensburg on Saturday the 22nd of October to see the boys live again after more than a year. At breakfast we listened to the "Live In Berlin" CD in order to get into the right mood, and on the way we listened to the new Best Of Album "Down By The Docks". Just after we had arrived in Regensburg and had visited the venue, watching Peter walk through the shopping centre, I received a message from Katrin from the SAILOR club, whom I should meet together with her brother Karsten and their friend Christel at SAILOR's hotel. There, the 4 SAILORs sat at the restaurant; while we joined Katrin and Karsten. There was a lot to talk about and many news to hear. Even Peter Lincoln joined us as relaxedly and naturally that I had never expected it. He is a very congenial and funny contemporary. Time until the beginning of the concert flew.
After the shows of Middle Of The Road and the Spencer Davis Group it was nearly time: SAILOR were announced and had a more than 10 minutes delay. The funny host of the radio station Charivari bridged the time gap with an interview of Katrin and made Karsten sing quite a good version of "A Glass Of Champagne". Cap K. nearly got as much applause as the band later on...
When SAILOR finally came on stage, a dream came true, because Henry Marsh was back at his side of the Nickelodeon. He was very nervous at the beginning of the show but really had an incredible joy of playing. Peter, who had already joined us at the hotel, was in a very funny mood and started rocking staright away. Grant worked as hard and superior as usual behind his drums, and Phil sang "Mack The Knife", while Peter did the lead vocals on "Karma Chameleon".
The concert was over much too fast; but after the show people had the chance to collect autographs; and I was able to briefly talk to Henry about his fantastic album "The Other Side Of The Ocean".
Like every concert of SAILOR it was clinking experience, this time also especially because of Katrin and Karsten. Many thanks to you two :-)
