2011 – The Flower Kings – Tour Kaputt – 2CD/DVD

This release is called An Official Bootleg and it’s available as a 2CD Digipak and as a DVD Digipak both with 20-page booklet. Special guest is drummer Pat Mastelotto, who has worked with King Crimson, Terry Bozzio, Tony Levin and the California Guitar Trio, among many others.

The Flower Kings are legendary for the energy, quality and magic they put in their live shows. And this amazing show – despite being called a bootleg – has a great sound quality and really good visuals are actually really good and it does justice to the nuances of the Flower Kings’ dynamics and performances. This tour was in support of Sum of No Evil and the selection of songs was just superb. Babylon, What if God is Alone and and Blade of Cain are real highlights on this album. These Kings know how to build a beautifully mood and deliver the goods. Hasse’s voice was wonderful that evening – as usual – and Jonas’ melodramatic fretless bass solo was just the icing on the cake. Simply buy this gem for a nice price.
