A concert review by Uli Neumann:

It was in June 2009 in Schwerin when I saw SAILOR the last time for a long period, an irony of fate that Grant Serpell couldn't play that concert due to his accidental hand-injury. In the meantime he played several concerts with SAILOR, but the forgoed the area of Northern Germany and I didn't want to travel a long way an pay for a hotel just to watch a short appearance.
But now there was the opportunity only one hour to go by car to visit a SAILOR show in the tiny little town of Appen near Hamburg. Since many years the local auxiliary fire-brigade organizes a charity-concert for the benefit of critically ill children. This year they collected more than 4.000.000€! All artist are there without getting any money, they pay they travel, hotelrooms are provided by sponsors.
This year SAILOR were announced as the highlight of this night so I bought my ticket in presale in my hometown. There was a hurry, because these concert are sold-out rapidely.
I'd just started my way to the venue when my cellphone indicated a short message. It was from Katrin and informed me, that she and Karsten felt sick and couldn't come to this concert. There were only few true SAILOR-fans at the venue.
Entrance startet at 5 PM, I arrived half an hour later and found that all attractive seats were already occupied. So I took my stand next to the stage to watch the other artist. I left the venue when the "Wildecker Herzbuben" appeared, two extremely fat guys making "Schunkelmusik", I couldn't stand this. So I waited next to the entrance and next to SAILORs wardrobe of these acoustical desaster to end. It was a good timing, because SAILOR, who were friendly as ever arrived at the venue. After the "big hallo" they dissapeared in their rooms and short time after that, the attac against the good taste was over, too, so I could go inside again.
SAILOR were the last to perform their show, of course they were fantastic. Did anyone expect anything else? And I was lucky, that some guests left the venue and seats right in front of the stage waited for me. So I could enjoy the lions-king-nicky, a nice peace of craftmansship, nice light effects and an intelligent and practical contruction. Of course nowadays SAILOR could not travel around with a huge equipment like the Mark I Nickelodeon, which had been useful in the '70s, when there were no sequencers, MIDI and digital-pianos able to play every sound by a touch of a button. If there had been a similar technology 1974, the nicky would never have been invented.
At the venue I met a few SAILOR-fans and we talked a while. After the concert, there was only few time for a short "goodbye" because I had to get up early and sing together with my gospel-choir after only five hours of sleep – but our little show was successful, too.
