Tour start in Flensburg: classics and amusing mistakes

The Flensburg audience experienced a special concert – because, according to Campino, it was “the last tester before it really started.” The charming thing about it: “You try out a lot. Sometimes mistakes happen, but that also amuses people.”

There was also a real classic on the set list that the band doesn’t play every night: “EisCooler Bommerlunder”, from the early days of the band. “We had really illustrious guests in Flensburg, namely the founders of Club Plunschi in Husby,” says Campino. “We played there in 1983. And we thought: We’ll only do an encore with these early songs from back then.”

The evening was great fun for the audience in Flensburg – for the band as well. “The people are well sung,” enthuses Campino. “You can see they haven’t forgotten the lyrics. We’re really looking forward to the concerts in the summer.”

“Everything out of love”: Klaus Maria Brandauer says hello

According to Campino, the title of the anniversary compilation “Everything out of love” goes back to the actor Klaus Maria Brandauer: “Once he came to a concert in Austria. After the show I didn’t know whether I should go to him, I was worried , if it was the right event for him. But then he said to me: ‘You know what? You can be as hard as you want – I didn’t see anything else today than pure love’. In the end it worked out exactly therefore in these 40 years.”

Campino: “I was a slouchy boy with a hole in my pants”

When Campino came to punk in his school days, he said he didn’t want to rebel against his parents with his music – nevertheless, the discovery of the movement spilling over from England was a personal liberation for him: “I was a relatively sloppy boy, not particularly conspicuous “, was actually in the second row. Then I also had to wear my older sister’s clothes, often had a hole in my pants. Punk suddenly made it avant-garde to wear worn-out clothes with holes. It was like the movement was made especially for me. It changed my life!”, says the singer on NDR television.

Die Toten Hosen: 40 years in almost the same formation

Except for the drummer, Die Toten Hosen still play in their founding formation – a fact that the band appreciates more and more as they get older. “Our greatest achievement is that we’ve been able to maintain our friendship during all this time,” says Campino. “Everyone has the feeling that they are there for each other – even if we have arguments – like in any other family. But the tablecloth has never been cut. We used to downplay this happiness because it might have been too close to us . But today we can allow that.”

On June 15, the Toten Hosen in Rostock on, almost a month later, on July 14th, the band makes a guest appearance in Hamburg.
