When was your 1st R.E.M.-gig?
Another memorable day: 15 years after seeing them for the 1st time.
I noticed R.E.M. first in 1991 and was waiting until 1995 to see the band live in Germany. But then I had to give back my 1st R.E.M.-ticket, because the band had to delay their gigs to summer.
So it got to be July, 9th, 1995.
Spending the morning at the lake, the day was going to get hotter and hotter in Dueren near Cologne, next to that lake.
We had Belly, Oasis and the Cranberries (who were great) and finally R.E.M..
Mike was brought to hospital afterwards. The announced radiobroadcast was prohibited later.
I took the feeling home that they could do better. “I have to see them again … soon!”, I thought and went to Berlin in August…
The beginning of … several more concertvisits…
My analoge wide-angle photos looked like that:
