Berlin Calling – yesterday, I went to see the opening concert of Paul Kalkbrenner‘s 2016 tour in Munich.

Once you accept the fact that it’s a well planned concert more than a live set in a club, which it usually is these days with him, it was actually quite nice. There were not too many surprises: he played his classics and stuff from the new album (where my preference lies on the classics). Here and there he could have given it a bit more drive, but you could call it a fair mixture. In my opinion, the first encore was the best part/track of the night (which unfortunately started 30 minutes late). The location (Zenith, Munich) was nice, though the organisation (especially the coat check) could certainly improve a bit. All in all, it was a good concert and a nice evening, but it could have rocked (not sure that’s the word) a bit more …
Check out his new album.
