Gonzo Latest News: Chris Thompson Live DVD/CD On The Way

Date Published: 24th January 2011


Chris Thompson filmed and recorded a special one-off concert in front of a sell-out audience at the Colos-Saal in Aschaffenburg, Germany on the 18th of January, which featured Chris alongside the Mads Eriksen Band.  The set list took in all eras of Chris’s career including solo material and of course his time with Manfred Mann’s Earthband.   The band were at the venue the previous day filming rehearsals and bonus footage too.

Concert highlights (of which there were many) include the Manfred Mann’s Earthband songs and of these ‘Martha’s Madman’ went down particularly well, not to mention the performance of  ‘Questions’ which closed the concert and Chris had noted that the Earthband had never previously performed that track.  The hits of course were there including ‘Blinded By The Light’, ‘Davy’s On The Road Again’, ’Mighty Quinn’ and ‘Spirits In The Night’.

A welcome addition to the set was the Chris Thompson and Night song ‘If You remember Me’ which is another song never performed live save for performances on television at the time of the single’s release in 1979.  The other Night song featured in the set was of course the hit single Hot Summer Night.

As ever Chris was supported by the Mads Eriksen band who played wonderfully throughout.

The DVD and CD package will certainly establish Chris Thompson as a major player in the European music scene and will no doubt entice many people to catch him on his tour dates in March/April and October of this year, and also some festival appearances in the summer (see below).

It is expected that the DVD/CD package will be released in late spring.
