Dave muss Konzert abbrechen

Vermutlich wegen einer leichten Lebenmittelvergiftung musste Dave Gahan das Konzert in Kansas City vorzeitig beenden. Der Auftritt der Band hatte erst wie gewohnt begonnen. Doch zu „In Your Room“ kehrte der Sänger nicht mehr auf die Bühne zurück. Nachdem ein Roadie dem Publikum zunächst mitgeteilt hatte, dass technische Probleme der Grund für Gahans Ausbleiben? seien, erklärte Fletch wenig später, es habe einen „medizinischen Notfall“ gegeben, weshalb Dave das Konzert nicht zuende singen könne. Die Band spielte noch einige? Songs mit Martin Gore am Mikrofon, kürzte dann aber die Setliste ab. Eine offizielle Stellungnahme der Band steht noch aus. Es wird vermutet, dass eine leichte Lebensmittelvergiftung Gahans schuld am vorzeitgen Abbruch ist.

Die Setliste:
Intro
A Pain That I’m Used To
A Question of Time
Suffer Well
Precious
Walking in My Shoes
Stripped
Home
It Doesn’t Matter Two
Leave in Silence
A Question of Lust
Somebody
Damaged People

  4. The show started off great. Great atmosphere, everyone pumped and excited and the band reacting accordingly. Nothing at all seemed amiss. During the 2nd song (AQOT) Dave even did a ton of his „signature“ spins with the mic stand. During „Stripped“ though, Dave clearly had problems with his earpieces and couldn’t hear the backing tapes, and started the song, only to mess it up and have to begin again. The crowd was quite forgiving and let it pass with no second thought. After like 3-4 songs, Dave left the stage so that Martin could do his usual 2-3 songs, as is the norm it seems. After Martin performed „Home“, the intro to „IYR“ started. The crowd (who knew the song) was excited and started to cheer. Except Dave never came out. Martin, wondering what was going on, walks over to where Fletch is, to inquire what was going on. A roadie comes out and talks to Martin, and then he nods and walks back. The backing tape is stopped, and Martin tells the crowd that they „are having technical difficulties“ and that they would move on with another song. He quickly confers with the rest of the crew on stage and then they launch into a toned-down version of „Leave in Silence.“

    After that is finished, a bald crew member/roadie comes out and announces to the crowd that they are NOT having technical difficulties, but that they have instead „lost the man in the middle“. Massive gasps and whispering begin to immediately flow throughout the entire crowd. The lights go up and the whole band leaves the stage. The crowd began to become a big aggitated, and after a couple of minutes, Fletch came out. The crowd settled down, and he announced that Dave was having „a medical emergency“ that wasn’t serious, but prevented him from continuing the concert. General shock and disbelief was the reaction from the crowd. He half-heartedly suggested that the concert was over, „unless you wanted Martin to do a few more songs“. Naturally the crowd cheered at this idea, and so after a short while Martin and the drummer and keyboardist (sorry I forget their names at the moment) came back on.

    They then performed „AQOL“. After that was over, Martin joked to the crowd about „do you ever have nightmares“. They then played „Somebody“ and „Damaged People“ to what can best be described as a standoff-ish crowd. After „DP“, Martin and everybody left, and then Fletch came back on to announce that they were going to have to „call it a day“ (at a night concert and that the show was over. And then I witnessed something I thought I would never see. The entire crowd BOOED. Fletch was booed off the stage and fans continued to boo as the lights were turned on.

    While leaving, 99% of everybody I walked by was yelling and pissed off and making comments about refunds or how mad they were.

    There were no reps at the gates in regards to refunds, so there probably won’t be any at all. I don’t anticipate a make-up date either.

    Now here comes the part about my opinion and what I witnessed first-hand from a fairly decent perspective. From the 2nd song on, Dave continually motioned off the stage (to crew members I’m assuming) that his earpieces weren’t working and that he either couldn’t hear properly the sound, or something wasn’t right with the sound he was getting. While Dave was on stage, he looked in top form as well. He didn’t look ill, didn’t look sick, nothing. I’ve seen DM in person before, and he looked just the same, if not better, than when I saw them last. It is in my opinion that Dave was simply upset or not happy with the sound system or his earpieces or something along those lines, and that he simply refused to come back on to finish the rest of the show. Again, this is only from what I observed, and from the crew themselves initially announcing it as a „technical problem“ and then changing it to a „medical problem“ that I have come up with this opinion. Plus, if it was indeed some „medical emergency“ that prevented Dave from peforming, why wouldn’t Martin want to stop the concert as well, to make sure that his friend and bandmate for nearly 25 years is okay? Why would he instead be in a fairly jovial and joking mood during the extra songs?

    A few informed fans were yelling „New Orleans“ out as they left, in ref. (i’m assuming) to the Devotional tour and how Dave’s medical issues affected that concert.

    I’ve only been this mad and upset once before in my life, and that was at the death of my grandmother, whom I loved dearly. I can’t believe that this happened with my all-time fav. band. If it’s what I think happened, then my opinion of them has just changed drastically.

    I have no clue if they will perform in Chicago or not now, which I think is their next stop on the tour.

  5. Von wegen, Lebesnmittelvergiftung einen Tag nach seinem Geburtstag? Da hat doch jemand wieder zu heftig gefeiert… ;-) Von hier aus gute Besserung.

  6. hoffe er kuriert es richtig aus. Morgen ist ja kein Konzert(?). Vielleicht verlegen Sie ja nur das heutige!

    Hempi

  7. Gute Besserung auch von mir, mit ’ner Lebensmittelvergiftung ist nicht zu spaßen. Die Fans in Chicago können froh sein wenn das Konzert heute mit ihm stattfindet.

  8. Mein Davilein *heeeeeeeul*
    Wünsch dir alles alles Gute zur Besserung !!!
    Hoffe du stehst bald wieder wohlbehalten auf den Beinen !! :-* *kiss*

  9. Gute Besserung für unseren Helden!
    Dave liebt doch rohen Fisch, vielleicht hätte er den besser weg lassen sollen???
    Ich hoffe, daß die Ärzte ihn schnell wieder hin bekommen werden! Aber das wird schon wieder! Bis Bremen ist er sicher wieder fit! Nur schade, wenn die Konzerte dieser Woche abgesagt werden müssen!
    @Hempi!
    Danke für den Hinweis, aber hatte das schon auf der at Seie gelesen, dort wurde allerdings noch nichts genaueres geschrieben, wurde auch über technische Probleme berichtet! Aber nun wissen wir mehr! Technische Probleme wären mir allerdings lieber gewesen! Ein kranker Dave ist nicht gut!

  10. Da kann man nur alles Gute wünschen, das er wieder auf die Beine kommt. Das passiert halt mal bei einer Tour, jeden Tag eine andere Stadt, sogar ein anderes Land, verschiedenes Essen! Na wird schon wieder.

    Mich würde mal interessieren, was es als Geburtstagsessen gab? Oder haben etwa Martin oder Fletch gekocht?

    Liebe Grüße Hempi!
