  • The concert was a part of a "venetian night" organized by Holger John,[4] an artist from Dresden. Flake and Olli did not perform with the rest of the band, their instruments were pre-recorded, Richard and Paul played acoustic guitars that exploded at some point and Schneider left the stage during the show because it was too loud, later his drum kit exploded. They all were wearing black robes and masks, inspired by the movie Fantomas.[2]
  • The band used more pyrotechnics at this concert than ever before, at the end of it the whole stage was on fire. The organizers were terrified because the venue was newly refurbished.[2]
