Peter Maffay is not slowing down and still has big ambitions. With his current album, Maffay had already toured through the hall of Germany with a spectacular 360 degree stage at the start of the year. With the album Wenn das so ist (When that’s how it is), Peter Maffay has broken all records and stormed to number one on the charts, within a very short time, for the 16th time. “Our fans gave us the number one gift, were going to thank them with a rock ‘n roll party!” Now he is starting his Open Air Tour Niemals war es besser (It’s never been better) in Bad Segeberg again, where he held his first open air concert almost 30 years ago. “Every wrinkle has its own story,” said Maffay and on his new tour performs the current songs along with a few classics from his over 40 year music career. It should more “party-like” than “concerty” and he has engaged the Dutch band The Common Linnets to accompany him on this tour. “He just wants to perform,” reveals Guenter Jaeckle, who developed a special stage for Maffay and the open air tour again. Due to the weather conditions, in this case the stage was created to be less protruding and was limited to the covered areas. epicto GmbH provided eight LED walls with 10 mm pixel pitch and a total space of over 150 square meters on which specially worked videos were played. In addition, the concert was recorded with five cameras and shown live on the LED screens. “Open air stays something special. As a musician you always carry a little bit of Woodstock with you” said Maffay. Freedom. Fresh air. Breathe in life and give it all the fitting framework with music – this specification was certainly met with the help of everyone who was involved. Matthias Riecker, May 2015
