did they do these afternoon talkshows when you were there back in 2007??? cos it doesn't really say who's gonna be on the show... so we're not sure if all artists also do this talkshow on the day of the show or if it's someone else??

assume Damien would rather do an acoustic set than talk for 60 minutes

That was the best Damien and David Gray shows I have been too. Loved the KKL. Go around to the left of the building from the main entrance if you want to meet him after the show. That's where I creeped.

Say hello to my Swiss miss. Again, very fun weekend! Really wish I could go back.

Where can I change the language to English?

Also, I wonder what are the differences between the seats.

You absolutely want to be on the floor. The 2nd balcony is tight unless you are row 1. Not a bad seat on the floor. 3rd is out of the question. Hard to hear/see uncomfortable. Box seats look cool but too rich for my American blood. Exchange rate was brutal when I was there though.

Jason Mraz did. And he played some songs. And after busked the streets which was cool. To my knowledge Damien did not.

Wow, what a nice surprise! Just got myself a ****ty seat ticket, even though I'm not quite sure I'll be able to make it.
He better be as good solo as he was five years ago with the full band...

Hey everyone,
I've got to sell my ticket as I won't be able to make it due to work.
So if anyone's interested, just drop me a PM!

Hello! I'm a newbie in the forum although I've been listing Damien's music for more than 10 years (time flies)

I wasn't aware he was performing in Luzern this summer and by the time I wanted to get some tickets, they were gone!

If you still have this spare ticket please let me know. I'm actually looking for at least two for my partner but one will be great anyways.

Thanks!!!

It's a print-at-home ticket for row 26, seat 15. I'd prefer to sell it to someone who hasn't got a ticket yet, though.
I've got several potential takers now who contacted me via PM, but I'll let you guys know in case I still won't be able to sell it.

exactly - us too!!

I actually sent Marti a pm today just wanting to see if you guys firmed up your plans....are you still in and out or are you going to stay the night? ................if you are staying I volunteered to host drinks back at our hotel afterward...........we are at the grand national on the lake looking right at the kkl

we are also going to mt pilatus the morning of the gig if anyone is in town and wants to join - we arrive into Lucerne on the 25th

we have tickets for the talk show thingy as well but still cannot find out if damo is going to be there as well.....

and after the gig we head down for nine nights in your fabulous country - sooo looking forward to that since my son and I have never been to Italy.............another great vaca inspired by a gig lol!!

totally looking forward to damo solo but this band had hit a really good groove for this - after damo woke from his nap

one of the best shows ever of any I have ever seen - this and DG the following night - cannot wait to get back into that venue!
