1. Official Fanmeeting
at Café Zero in Karlsruhe
A cooperation of
Karlsruhe, 15.00 o'clock, Café Zero in the
pedestrian zone, after a short search the team of www.negative-love.de found the
way to the location. But luckily we found out that we was not the only ones that
had to search for it! Thank god! We already thought that we are too blind! As we
entered the interestingly designed cafe, Danni already awaited us with a few
fans! Immidiately a few task was alotted to us. With the guest list I was
looking forward to the arriving fans at the stairhead...but after a few minutes
we got the first problems with our guestlist, because most of the arriving
people didn't belong to our fanmeeting, they wanted to drink some coffee or just
wanted to use the restrooms! Sponteanous like we are we decided to ask the
people from than on only still: Fanmeeting or toilet? For our astonishment most
of them answered: "toilet" and "where is it?"
A few minutes later the location was filled with fans! I gave up my post to the
trusting hands of Caro and Vanessa who took care about the arriving fans and
divided them into groups of their favourite bandmember! (in order to keep a

(Thanx for the pictures that was taken by Satania and Sumi!)
their own security we decided, to put the fans of Sir Christus, Jay und Snack
in a kind of „cage“, so they got the possibility to smoke on a small balcony!
The Jonne fan corner was on the highest point of the cafe, with a good view of
the hole location, this was also the most silent part!
pictures of the Jonne fan-corner!
The Jonne fans was the calmest, so they needed a
small animation from Britta!
The girls in the "cage" started to
prepare themselves for the things that may come!
really ordering ten beer? *shock*
A strange atmosphere was
laying in the air. Shortly after four o'clock six illustrious figures surprised
us with their presence. One after one, Snack, Jay, Larry, Antti, Christus and
Jonne climed up the stairs! Danni and Caro took the boys to their fan-groups and
serve them some drinks. The surprise for the fans was so great that many of them
was speachless for a while!
Once again, especially the Jonne-fan-corner!
Meanwhile inside of the "cage"
everyone found his place
and a motivaded conversation had started
At the Jonne-corner everybody was relaxed!
Jonne satisfied his fans by taking pictures and answering questions, like here!
Antti and Jay had a really relaxed time! They was checking the bills of the last
Sorry...just a joke!
The most fans only had eyes for
Christus, so Larry and Antti were able to have a conversation with Brownie and
the team of the fotographer Uwe Bartzsch! Who made some great pictures of the
boys doing grimaces!
Caro was taking the chance to cadge a
cigarette from Snack! Than she was controlling the number of smokers on the
balcony, where she already found the half organisation team!
While around us the photo and
autograph terror had been breaking out, the Jonne group was using their time to
do a relaxted conversation! Among other things we found out the reason for
Jonnes missing nipple-piercing. He told us that he lost it on a vacation in
Greece while swimming in the sea! He also mentioned that he could buy a new one
but maybe it must be pierced again, because he hadn't tried to put a new one in!
we had been told that he is an absolute scatterbrain! So the tourmanager mostly
had to return his stuff back to him! It would be even so bad that, after the
last gig in Russia,
he had forgotten his favourite waistcoate!
Sunny asked him why they just had selected
the song „If I close my eyes
from Ozzy Osbourne and Lita Ford as the end song of their shows, because this is
one oh her favourites. Jonne answered that it was Antti’s idea. Before they had
this special version of "Goodbye" that had been sung by an chinese fan. Jonne
comment it by saying that maybe it was time for a change! Thanx to Antti for
that great idea!
After that it was time for some
us were still
a lot of rush and it seemed that everybody was having a lot of fun!
Jonne took the time to take some pictures with fans again!
Like here with Annika, unfortunately her camera didn't work. Jonne comment it
with the words:
„That is my bad Karma!“ !
Meanwhile the other band members were signing some pictures!
Patiently satisfying the needs of his fans!!
we started a conversation again, this time about concerts. Somebody wanted to
know from Jonne which concert he had seen last and if he is more the type who
freaks out or rather a quite observer of the show!? He considered shortly and
answered, that the last concert he had been to, was in September the gig of Day
Eleven in Tampere! He admited that he is more the quiet observer! He prefers
bands who change the speed of their songs during the show ( from rock to ballads),
so that it would not be boring to keep the attention on the show! I used the
situation to admit that I was a big fan of the Kelly Family for twelve years,
because they are one of the best live bands ever! Jonne told me that he knows
the band but he never saw them live!
(What a shame! That had to be changed soon!)
quite minute I asked Jonne to send some greetings to the fans who were not able
to come to Karlsruhe!
Here you can watch the small video!
Slowly our time with the boys come to
Danni had to deliever them to the location because they had another important photoshooting
and the soundcheck after that on their plan! According to this, the goodbye was
quite shortly and hectically! Like always Jonne had forgotten something!
some more Jonne-impresions!
Here is the fan-photo-gallerie!
