2019.03.22 - Ludwigsburg, Germany


Recommended Posts

The second to last show of the European leg of the Post Traumatic cycle is here! Mike's taking the show to Ludwigsburg this time.


Last night's show in Amsterdam was definitely a fun one! Starting off with a solid run that showcased Mike's hip hop strengths with tracks like 'Petrified''Watching As I Fall', and 'It's Goin' Down' (which featured a completely new chorus!) setting the tone for the rest of the night. The 'Lift Off' jam reached peak capacity, going over seven minutes as Mike included parts of 'High Voltage''Step Up''Hands Held High' and gave Dan a drum solo. The encore was just as wild, though, with 'Nobody Can Save Me' followed by the tour debut of 'Cigarettes', and Mike even gave us a little shoutout! What a guy.

Mike's never actually been to Ludwigsburg before this show, so let's just take a quick little look at his German stops over this past month (lord knows there's no shortage of them). Starting off in Berlin with a fan coming up on stage to play piano on 'In The End' and the wonderful Jennifer Weist coming on stage for a surprise 'A Place For My Head', Mike started his run of shows in Germany with a bang. The next show in Bremen got one of only two performances (so far) of 'Until It Breaks' on this leg of the tour and, more surprisingly, the live debut of the bonus track 'Prove You Wrong', which has quickly become a staple of the set. The surprises continued in Hannover with Don Broco once again joining Mike for 'A Place For My Head' to close the show and the first verse of 'Hands Held High' making an appearance during the bridge of 'Sorry For Now'Oberhausen is where things got really wild, though, with FOUR tour debuts: the piano version of 'Numb', the iconic duo 'Robot Boy' and 'World's On Fire', AND 'High Road' all finally made their way to stage. We also got the first verse and chorus of 'High Voltage' during the bridge of 'Sorry For Now'. Things toned down a bit in Hamburg, but we still got a new addition to the set with the piano version of 'Burn It Down' returning, featuring guest vocals from Yvonne Catterfeld. Mike took a bit of a break from Germany, but came back strong in Munchen with the tour debut of 'Lift Off', which has only been played once before and featured the demo verse of 'Lift Off', the chorus of 'Step Up' and the first verse of 'High Voltage'. Hopefully Mike keeps up with the last few shows in Germany tonight!


As last night proved, the tour ending does not mean there's no chance for new songs to be added. Mike said it himself, he's trying to mess with us and that spreadsheet we retweeted a little bit ago, and there's quite a few ways for him to do that. There's still 3 songs from the US tour he hasn't played on this leg: 'Place To Start''Invisible', and 'Sharp Edges'. Could we see any of those come back in these last few shows?


Who's going to the show? Mark's taking a break for tonight, but he'll be back for the final show in Luxembourg City. After that, Mike does two nights in Tel Aviv to close out the Post Traumatic cycle.
