The only show i ever was

I remember it like it was yesterday, living in germany i was not accustomed to all the crowds partying outside the Festhalle, made me feel like travelling in a time-tunnel :-)
As i came from the train-stations hundreds of people greeting me like an old friend!

europe tour 90- like going back to 77 as far as venue and vibe

This was my 1st show of europe tour 1990. My friends were there from the beginning but I jumped on at Frankfurt. It was surreal. If you saw a tye dyed sould rambling around the foreign streets-you know you had a friend. The only Heads that seemed to make it over from the states were pure, family, in it for the right reasons, Heads. The vibe was dynamic. Pure love. As the show went on the local Germans crowded the stage very intensely-they were trying to see what they were hearing-they couldn't beleive it. Most of the German concert goers were wearing leather pants and boots with big hair. It was a trip.

You nailed it ThankYouJerry

...dead on regarding your comments about the heads and the vibe. Entire tour was like that. None of the "I'm just here for the parking lot scene" crowd. But, I found this show to be particularly "dark" for me. The German fans were very heavy metal, spiked arm bands and stuff, and a lot of hard partying (drinking) American military guys there gave it a bad vibe for me. Much better times were ahead in Paris............

To Hamburg

I spent the night on the Railway station with lots of others.

Because it was a cold night the staff opened a room so we could get some sleep, before the early train to Hamburg

a party was held on the train

Europa

Got tix for this show by chance in Stockholm from some heads hanging in the train station. There was an overnight train full of 'us' from Stockholm to Hamburg that just rocked all night. Girlfriend and I were touring around Europe for 5 months that fall and my parents were living in southern Germania at the time. I didn't get any wierd vibes from anyone at this show (that black Afghan I picked up in Amsterdam probably helped) but I was used to the Germans and their spiked wrist bands and leather pants. There were so many US soldiers there that they send Military Police to babysit them, and I didn't see any problems. Saw James Brown in this same venue in 93. Remember there was a band playing outside before the show.
