Farin Urlaub Racing Team in concert

Being a member of "The Best Band in the World" on weekdays, Farin Urlaub chose to do some solo stuff. But he actually didn't plan to perform his songs on stage or to go on tour. But due to popular demand he founded a band called "Farin Urlaub Racing Team" (FURT) in 2002 and went on tour. 

Now he's back on tour with his fourth album (the first studio album of FURT). He already sold out big venues such as the Palladium in Cologne, the Jahrhunderthalle in Frankfurt or the Sporthalle in Hamburg in advance but also plays at lesser known locations such as the Tenniseventcenter in Hohenems/Austria where he played yesterday in a quite - well let's call it intimate atmosphere. Although with some spaces in the audience left, Farin Urlaub didn't lose his humor and seemed to be quite amused to see the smallest "Wall of Death" in history. After all great, funny and - as usual - long show featuring 29 songs of all of his albums. Here's the setlist:
And what's up next? In Extremo, Grossstadtgeflüster and Russkaja! Check out for great concerts.
