Know nothing about the show yet, except that they opened with Wish You Were Here of course.

But there is a review of the first day of the festival, in Dutch, that is destroying it.

Read it here (in Dutch): http://www.soundzmagazine.nl/concertverslag/rock-im-revier

Let me highlight some stuff for you guys:

Quote:
Rock Im Revier has only been going for two days, but can already be named the biggest flop in festival history.
[...]
The football stadium (where the festival is held) isn't fit for a three day festival.
[..]
Due to the too small podiums, the disastrous sound quality and the frightingly empty areas, no artist feels comfortable.
That last point is the most important: where ever you walk, nobody is to be seen. It's a small wonder there are no tumbleweeds blowing around. During the day no more than a THOUSAND people are wandering around (mind you, this was the day where METALLICA headlined and Faith No More was playing)


Than the reviewer mentions high prices for beer, huge distance between stages and goes into the Metallica-gig to review.

But it sounds like Incubus has been unlucky to play these stages. This a photo of the arena while Incubus is playing, just an hour before Muse is taking the stage:

Good performance. Too big arena. Just a couple of thousand in a place for 40.000…. sound problems. But the guys did their best to get along.

Setlist:

Wish You Were Here (New Intro)
Vitamin
Absolution Calling
Anna Molly
Nice To know You
Are you In?
Drive
Dance Like You're Dumb
Wolves
Kiss (longer bridge)
Sick Sad
Pardon Me (Slow Intro)
Megalomaniac (Nirvana Bridge)
Crow Left Of The Murder (Half tempo ending)

I think it's all correct.

Noticed they did extended bridges on Kiss and Megalomaniac in München.

Cool that they played Dance Like You're Dumb. How did it sound in concert? No Trust Fall though?

I only live an hour away from "Schalke" and thought about spending 70€ on a day ticket but I hate arena shows and, because of the troubled history of the festival, had some worries. Glad I did not go.
I'm sure Incubus and all other bands did their best but....for a festival that originally was meant to replace the famous "Rock am Ring" this is a huge flop.
Just wish Incubus would actually "tour" Germany for real, not just festivals!

The whole band cracks up after some weird scream by Brandon.
