Stolen from Instagram because OMG an actual tour!
So, as many of you know, a couple of days ago, Hatari posted this on their Instagram stories account and the fandom either wept with joy or cried in sorrow.
The closest they are playing to me next year will be in Prague, with Vienna running a close second. In my country of residence, there’s Köln, which is a 5 to 8 hour slog, depending on road conditions, but the weather would be warmer by the time that gig comes around.
So, yes, once again, I might have to cross borders to see a band I like. OTOH, except for these fan made phone videos of their shows with the horrible bass distortion, I have never seen them live. I can’t just judge the performance, but also the venue. Would I be able to see the stage if I stand in the back (because I am a short person living in a land of tall people, and I am an American, so I have to see EVERYTHING), and how would the sound be? Also, would I be shamed for being among the oldest members of their audience? These are questions, among others, I would have to have answered when I go to their show in Berlin next month. After that, I will consider whether I want to go through the extra expense of a train ticket and a hotel room just to enjoy one night of our future leaders of the free world gracing my presence.
