I'm not sure if the setlist is in the correct order and if there's anything missing! They played at least two songs I didn't know. Maybe it were "Bacharach" and "Highway Star"!!!

I'm sorry but I have to say that I am a bit disappointed of yesterdays show cuz there were no real specialties in it! Mike didn't talk that much at all and just did his show as brilliant as usual but this time he didn't throw his Mike (mic) away and didn't kiss the stage! I was also disappointed of the short set (they just did one encore)! About a month before this first show in Germany Billy even mailed me that they would change the setlist for Germany. In fact, they didn't really change it: They just left some songs behind.

About an hour after the show we (Alex and I) met Jon in front of the tour bus! Nobody seemed to realize or know him! There were not that many people anyway! I asked him why they didn't show up for Caffeine, We care a lot, BE AGGRESSIVE and Light up and let go. He kind of told me that they didn't do any encore because the club was such a small one in comparison to the American and Australian ones (about 1800 - sold out). We did some more small talk about his role as guitarist and private person with/ in FNM! Suddenly there appeared a pretty good looking woman, maybe his chick! A few minutes later he asked us for our names, shook hands with us and said 'Ciao'!

Then we've waited for the other guys to come out to the bus for over one hour. We interviewed the bus driver about the other guys. He let us know that they were already in the bus. Mike was one of the first ones. If the driver told us the truth Mike even slept at that time. Don't get me wrong: the show was dope but it could have been even better! Maybe Mike and the rest are/were a bit tired! Maybe I will be even luckier in Hanover in about 2 weeks.
