This is just superb! One of my top favourites. I have not heard it live yet. Maybe I'll get lucky at one of the concerts in the final leg.

Thank you for posting it.

It's funny you should say that. Avalanche is also one of my all time favs. I know he has not played it very often this tour, I believe somewhere around 13 times in 200+ concerts. So the Avalanche/total concerts ratio is way off balance haha. Nevertheless, I was VERY fortunate to have seen him play it three times this tour; twice in Brussels and yesterday in Dortmund!!

For you, I sincerely hope LC plays in the concert(s) you'll be attending, for it is truly a magic moment when LC stands there all alone in that eerie lighting and plays this dark and sinister song.
Ah, you've conjured up my fantasy about future concerts after his new album is completed. Just LC with his guitar. No band. No backing singers. Shorter concert to be sure. But, oh, it would be sublime. Perhaps just his 12 new songs, about one hour plus, same length as a CD.

Just LC and his guitar in an intimate setting. Sigh ...

Dortmund was great!
I saw L.C. just once before, in Oberhausen '08. I have had huge expectations but than the Concert was even better.
So I always wanted to keep this Memory and let this concert be a unique experiance.
I hesitated long Time buying Tickets for Dortmund, my fear was i could only be disapointed.
I was not disapointed, not at all.
It was a different experiance, but still great. To be honest, yes, this special "first Time" Kick was missing.
But: It still was an absolute moving show! L.C. and his Band really played their hearts out. It seemed that Leonard really enjoyed himself
and had a lots of fun! I heard five Songs that they had not played two years ago in Oberhausen, and the best of all:
Avalanche was one of them!
So glad that I could not resist, glad that I took the Chance!

And an extra Highlight followed after the Concert: The Forum Meet-up.
It was really exiting and great to meet some of You in Person!
A big Thank You to You who where there for the nice hours after the great Concert and special thanks to the wonderful Henning
for his efforts as Organiser!!!!

@dannycary: Fantastic fotos indeed

We had super days in Dortmund with several highlights.

@Michael: One of the highlights was an English joke called Michael Leslie Dean !

Here is another video of "Aavalanche" (my personal highlight!) - slightly different perspective, taken "only" with my "normal" small photo camera though...

Hi Ann. I watched this wonderful video before I knew it was yours. (I am intrigued by your choice of Youtube name, Keindrama).

I enjoyed it very much. Chilling and thrilling. Good capture!
