This concert was announced on Telekom Street Gigs on March 1st; press release.

There was a live stream on Twitter and YouTube on March 17th at 20:00 CET, the day of the concert. The YouTube livestreams consisted of a 360-degree and a non-360 degree version, both available in 1080p, but the streams were not stable. Reportedly, the video and audio quality were poor; the Twitter webstream (non-360 degree) has very high bitrate video and well-encoded audio, so despite it being 720p, I feel that it is likely the superior version.

Telekom has now uploaded a 1080p non-360 degree stream, and a 4K resolution 360 degree stream on YouTube:

The Twitter 720p livestream video is available at Source 1, and the audio by itself, split into tracks, is available at Source 2. Both are downloadable.

Some noteworthy points from this concert, not necessarily an exhaustive list:

  • This was the live debut of Going Backwards and So Much Love.
  • Towards the end of So Much Love, Dave sang the lyric "No Tears For The Creatures Of The Night" from the eponymous Tuxedomoon song.
  • This was the second time Corrupt was played live; it was played previously at a rehearsal performance at 2017-03-06 Avatar Studios, New York, NY, USA.
  • World In My Eyes has a new intro.
  • A Pain That I'm Used To is the "Jacques Lu Cont" remix version, similar to what was performed during the 2013 - 2014 "Delta Machine" Tour.
  • Little Soul sees Peter Gordeno using the Roland RD-2000 keyboard, on which he demonstrated a bit of "Little Soul" at the end of a promotional Roland video on Facebook.[1] Martin Gore also has a young daughter, which may have contributed to this song's choice for performance; "Eternal" was confirmed to have been written about her.[2]
  • Walking In My Shoes has a new intro incorporating some elements of the "Random Carpet" remix, and possibly others.
  • Personal Jesus does not have a very lengthy and slow intro; instead, it begins quickly with a short intro and "Reach out, touch faith".

Daniel Miller and members of Rammstein were in attendance.
