Hope you all arrived well with no hassles in Hamburg. Had time for a quick together? If not, maybe tomorrow when you've had a good nights sleep, which again is probably most unlikely. ;D Be careful don't guzzle down to many pints, we need you sober, in less than 24 hours, Yusuf will be taking you to the moon and stars, and we need you back alert with the full report. @jane, counting on you to keep everyone in order over there. ;D Just joking, I'm sure everyone will be on there best behaviour. Good luck with the autographs, and maybe a pic with Yusuf and company. Goodnight, and have gooday!!!!

@sabina, that's what Majicat is all about. Welll there's no point to sit at home and moan is there? ;D Have to make the best of every situation.It's the next best thing than to actually being there. The response after a concert is always amazing, and I'm soooo excited for everyone. Your time is coming Sabina, Berlin is waiting for you, Yusuf is waiting, you will be just fine. Just in case though, I will tell Christina to have the smelling salts handy, not that I'm suggesting anything will happen, but just in case. ;D Regi might be in need of them too. I can just see her now, she will be shaking like a leaf when Yusuf starts the first cords..... "He was the King of trees ....la lal lala..... ;D ...... Luv you all too Happy travels and happy concerting!!!!

Approx 3 hours to go, greek time that is. Wonder what our friends are up to. Having lunch, coffee, loading their cameras, getting themselves in that Yusuf concert mode. Pulse rate increasing, hands sweating, feeling a little faint, jet lag, deprived of sleep, maybe just feeling a little overwhelmed with the thought of the expected song list? Now girls just relax, take in a deep breath, and let it out, once more, hold it...... now let it out, repeat a few more times ;D There, bet you're feeling much better already. Remember to do this, and you'll be just fine. Jane, no smelling salts needed ;D
:)Hmmm reckon it will be each man to his/her own once Yusuf sets foot on stage!!!.....NO-ONE is going to notice if one of us swoons...so I am taking some clothes pegs to peg on in lieu of pinching myself into conciousness........oh my you guys are NOT good at steadying nerves!!!!!!LOL some kind of sweet revenge?........

Yusuf should be nearly half way through the concert now, maybe break time? I wonder what song our friends are listening to. Lets see who will be the first to report back to us. Jane mou, I'm counting on you!!!! ;D
Sorry - had trouble logging in last night from the hotel.
Show was faster moving tonight - less chatting between numbers. About the same set list as Stockholm, but he added 'Maybe I'm Right" (playing piano) midway through the second set. Also - there was a second encore - "All Kinds of Roses".
With that - first set was under 50 minutes tonight - about 70 minutes or so with encores for the second (for those of you who have to catch trains in the following shows).
Came out wearing the Roadsinger trenchcoat at the beginning. Same hat for first two songs of the second set.
No one has mentioned Boots And Sand - he leaves the stage for that song while the video plays on the screens. The band plays live while his vocals are recorded.
:)TY trotsnj for all the info....v.good of you to try to get to us! 'All kinds of Roses......I was thinking yesterday how I would love to hear and see Yusuf sing this.....lovely....hope it stays for Berlin ...sounds selfish to want from someone giving so much tho!! Thank you again.... much appreciated......
