Ashclouds, Bombs and Weizenbier – Rockapella touring Germany
by Florian Städtler
Touring internationally is far from glamorous. It’s a neverending fight against jet-lag and other obstacles unseen, unheard and unheard of by the a cappella fan.
Rockapella, including their new member Steven “Iron Man” Dorian, finished their longest tour of Germany about two weeks ago before heading to Japan for eight more shows. They’re probably still relaxing from that around-the-world trip, which left audiences from Hamburg to Munich to Tokyo to Sapporo enthusiastic and happy.
I came to see the group at their final gig of the two-weeks German tour in Vellmar and had the opportunity to do three short interviews about the most spectacular events of the tour: First mentioned was the ashcloud which almost prevented three of the guys making it to the first concert in time. Secondly the performance in Göttingen was cancelled just two hours before the show due to a World War II bomb found in the city center. Finally George Baldi III told us his catering secret while touring “Deutschland”: It’s German “Weizenbier” (wheat beer), especially the dark one ;-)
Have fun watching the videos and thanks for your comments. By the way: Rockapella will be back in Europe in October, coming to Espoo, Finland and Bucharest, Romania.
