Excuse my English! Thank you very much for this wonderful concert in Cologne. It was good like every time from this SUPER band. The accoustic was not so good like in Mannheim, because the voice come back from every side, this was not so good like three years ago. And also the audience was not so fanatic like three years ago. But what shalls. The concert, the musicians, Mark and his fans were fantastic. So today I will go to Luxemburg, for to see them once more again, but it will be the last one. Really I will be very sad, when it`s gone. True love will never fade!!! Shangri-La ... and Good Luck ...

Now it´s over! This was my 10th and final show of the KTGC tour 2008. It began with a shock for me. The ticket in the 2nd row that I had bought on eBay was a stolen one so that I could not get the seat I had paid for. The ticket office of Kölnarena was so kind to give me another ticket but the seat was not in the infield. So the sight and the sound was not as good as on the other shows I saw. Nevertheless a great concert and to the encores I´ve made my way to the stage ;-) It was a pleasure to meet many fans on several shows who are Dieter, Margret, Wolfgang Cz., Wolfgang S., Jörg, Martina, Miriam and many more. See you on the next tour! All the best Holger

Going Home This was my third concert this tour, and sadly I have to tell it was my last one Mark and the band where great, I realy enjoyed the show thanks again Mark The people in Köln Where as ever in Germany to late in for the show so it started 15 minutes later. I can't understand why people don't stay at there place during the concert. The whole concert there where some of them wlking arround. Although the show was great, the acoustics in the Köln Arena is the worst I've ever heard. The sound was bouncing back from the walls I hope Mark will decide to go touring next year too, Iff so I will be there!!!! What an awfull weather in Köln after the show, I was wet all over
