BAROCK live in Karlsruhe

BAROCK and the “Flying Guitarman”

Karlsruhe-Durlach, April 13, 2013

Last night I had the pleasure to photograph BAROCK at the “Festhalle” in Karlsruhe-Durlach. This historic venue was sold out and packed with approximately 1200 spectators. Everyone was on its feet when the band hit the stage and hammered out “Back in Black” … …for about 90 seconds! Then sound and light went out and everybody was more than surprised. But the technicans got all engines running in a few minutes. Thus the band had its second entry on stage and continued the show in full speed.

BAROCK is truly one of Germany’s top AC/DC tribute bands! Grant Foster on vocals and Eugen “Air” Toscher on lead guitar give this line up the final kick. And you should have seen Eugen working his guitar while spending most of the time in the air, rather flying than jumping …! Sort of the dream of a photographer, especially when being equipped with two nice Nikons and an “all area” pass, not being disturbed by the security for more than two hours.

As you can tell by the pictures: I had a hell of a time. And I especially liked the version of “Two’s up” from the “Blow up your Video” album. A song that I have never heard being performed live before! So if BAROCK is around your place one day, be sure to get a ticket and make it to the front row!
