What a find online: The Stendal Blast live concert in San Francisco from October 2005. I didn't know that it was even recorded and available online until now. Back then I was able to convince the German Consulate General San Francisco and the State of Northrhine Westphalia to bring the band over here to promote the Fifa World Cup cities in NRW, Dortmund, Gelsenkirchen and Cologne.
