Thank you gostenca for these admirable videos and sturgess for posting the links!

Does it look like LC has put on a little bit of weight? His face has a healthier glow and he is looking really good in these videos.

Kindest regards,
Mary

Dance me to the end of love
The Future
Ain't no cure for love
Bird on the wire
Everybody knows
In my secret life
Who by fire
Lover Lover Lover
Waiting for the miracle
Anthem

Tower of song
Suzanne
Sisters of mercy
The Partisan
Boogie street
Hallelujah
I'm your man
Take this waltz

So long, Marianne
First we take Manhattan

Famous blue raincoat
If it be your will
Closing time

I tried to leave you
Whither Thou Goest
Love has torn us apart

Who played the Sax???

Postby nhas » Fri Aug 28, 2009 3:11 pm

Hi everybody,

Yes, the concert in Wiesen was quite fabulous, especially the second part, I think ("Hallelujah" was so intense, and everything was perfect after that).

Now, I am writing to ask specifically, if anybody knows the identity of the musician who played all the saxophones, clarinet and so on. It's not the man who is listed on this webpage for the 2008 tour, they must have changed. I think LC introduced as "Silver", I did not get the first name.

Anybody help me out there?

Thanks, and have a nice day. And also: Thanks a lot for those videos on youtube. There is software to download them from Youtube, btw, just google "Free Youtube Download" and you will find it. You can download them then, in various formats like avi. The quality is, of course, not perfect, but pretty good for the circumstances (I saw all these glowing little monitors in the crowd from above...).

Take care

Norbert :)

Well, thank you everybody, then, for letting me know. LC may well have said "Soldo", I did not hear it that clearly.

And thanks again for the videos.
