NO MERCY: KARTHAGO AT "BELLE EPOQUE"
(September 7th, 2005) Siegen was the place to be when Karthago hit the stage at the "Belle Epoque" venue. The audience included quite a few people who became die-hard fans 30 years ago!
In addition, the former Karthago member Frank Diez came along. The bass hero did two tours with our guys back then in the old days. Even he was stunned when Joey and the crew started kicking it!
During a Rolling Stones exhibition right before the gig, Joey and Tommy delivered some unplugged Stones songs.

(May 24th, 2005) This is what we call a proper Rock'N'Roll gig! The two legendary acts Karthago and Jane teamed up in order to raise some roofs in Hamburg, Worpswede and Hannover. In the latter northern German town, even a third band joined them: The local Rock masters Ramses.
The Karthago team thanks Jane and Ramses for these killer gigs. It was a lot of fun, guys!
Karthago delivered classic hits such as "We're Gonna Keep It Together" (which they did) as well as new compositions. At the Fabrik in Hamburg, Gef Harrison joined Joey Albrecht on stage for a great version of Jimi Hendrix' "Red House". This tune was part of a Hendrix-medley. Achim Schulze, who usually is the sound mixer for the Scorpions, made sure the PA-channels were tuned perfectly in Hannover.
Loads of die-hard Karthago-fans were part of the audience. Also music biz members came along, including the CEO of SPV Records, Manfred Schuetz. Fellow musicians such as Karsten Bohn danced the night away as well!
A breathtaking tour! Let's do it again! On the picture below: Karthago, Jane and the owner of the Worpswede Music Hall, H.D. Ludwig.
