On that night in Düsseldorf Germany, it was 'first time I saw my beloved group first & last time,.... I enjoyed the show very much, even it wasn't the "original" - Line up, but Igor and Billy did a great job (Enjoyed Igors Solo very much!
The show was GREAT (of course)!
No changes in the setlist.
Howe played Mood for a Day, Ram and Clap.
Billy seemed a little bit bored during the first songs but then he had fun like the others. My seat was almost immediately in front of him in row 2. His playing and singing was good but I still prefer Rabin.
Igor was also good but I missed Wakeman (or Downes).
Of the songs I was especially impressed by Rhythm of Love which was never a favourite of mine. The new version is great and Steve makes it sound very yessy.
Maybe I'll see them again in a few days in Hannover.
