Ethel and Joe were as professional and entertaining as I've come to expect, but the real difference was:
Our Todd. Maybe due to the location, an old roundhouse for trains (he said that he loves trains since his childhood days) he was in great spirits (and I don't mean beer) from note number one. He really went for it this time and was therefore 10 times better than in Bochum (where he was good).
Possibly the best singing I ever heard in a live show, nearly zero problems (1 string broke, but no fluffs on piano) and as a bonus Ethel coming out during the "Lion"-part of Bang the uke as scantily clad hula-dancers.
Great fun was had by all involved and that includes the crowd, who - although seemingly not too familiar with Todd's music - really loved what they saw and heard.
Can't wait until I get to Berlin. One more to come .....
