SCHLOSSPLATZ STUTTGART, GERMANY
David was in a good mood , but did have some voice problems near the end caused by the cold weather. The audience was really fine, no drunk shouters, no I-need-another-beer idiots, no talkers, AND: because the security was very tough at the beginning (I wasn’t even allowed to take a picture of the empty stage) very few people used their mobile phones for pictures. It was like a concert in the good old days.
Polly was in the left corner with her two younger kids, cowering on the ground and sneaking on stage to see what daddy is doing. Then she took a look at her boys, and Mummy realised something is wrong, all three went off backstage and came back after a few minutes, everyone with a headphones to protect against the sound!
Interesting that David has started to interact with his fellow-musicians. He walked over to Chester Kamen during WYWH Intro and they played side-by side.
