Thursday, 27th June, 9.40pm, Kornspeicherbühne
Wolfgang Niedeckens Bap ist coming to us with a fresh tour program: The original show consists an overwhelming repertoire of songs in a German dialect that also German-speaking listeners do not always understand. But no dought: BAP is a legend – and BAP-songs of that unusual band are part of German music history.
Niedeckens BAP returns to the stage after a creative break on Thursday, June 27, at the 6th blacksheep Festival in Bonfeld, before the tour comes to an end after only a few gigs. In Bonfeld BAP fans have one of the last chances to experience the “Strooßekööter Tour”.
Support: Sing my Song-Band
For the first time in its 40-year history, BAP is supported by a three-headed brass section, namely the section of the “Sing meinen Song”-Band, featuring classics like “Kristallnaach”, “Verdamp lang her”, “Do kanns zaubere” or „Nemm mich met“ as well as new songs from the latest album “Reinrassije Strooßekööter – The Family Album”, which Wolfgang Niedecken has recorded in New Orleans. So a fresh south wind blows through, which is reflected in the stage design as well as in the groovy arrangements.
Brass Trio gives a sparkling note
The brass trio gives Kölsch rock hits such as „Waschsalon“, „Et ess, wie’t ess“ oder „Diss Naach ess alles drin“ a sparkling note. With great attention to detail, Wolfgang Niedecken has also put findings from his treasure chest on the setlist.
The songs are illustrated by projections, private photos or self-made film sequences, creating a very special atmosphere and blurring them into a big whole with Wolfgang Niedecken’s anecdotes and stories. Yes, Niedecken is not only an outstanding musician, he is also a gorgeous storyteller, with a warm-hearted nature and the connection to his roots in Köln.
A trip to yesteryear’s New Orleans
The blacksheep visitors will experience a musical journey from Köln to southern states of the United States of America.
The stage design is a reminiscent of the magical New Orleans charm of yesteryear, and when “Tara’s Theme” is recorded off-screen at the beginning of the concert, the theme song of the film classic “Gone with the Wind”, you should be prepared for a musical journey full of surprises.
But Wolfgang Niedecken would not be Wolfgang Niedecken if he did not assert his socio-political claim during the course of the evening by clearly taking a stand. Many of his words are more relevant than ever today.
