After a few minutes, the next and biggest surprise of the day was revealed: The Leningrad Cowboys came on stage and played a concert of about one hour to a very small crowd of about 400 invited guests. After a few minutes, everybody was dancing to the great and funny mix of polka, rock, russian folklore and more. It was one of the most memorable nights for me! If you haven't seen it, go ahead and rent the DVD Leningrad Cowboys Go America, a funny movie with a lot of dry humour and really good music!
Holger and Annette clearly enjoying themselves!
The Leningrad Cowboys even had recorded a
CD of three James Bond songs especially for the Swatch James Bond
After the concert was over (although
everybody asked for "more" and "more"...), it was time to explore the
room a little further. The bar was completely made of crystal
clear ice and it was melting away during the night...
nice countdown sign!
Second band of the night were the Midnight Juggernauts
from Australia. Great synth-disc-rock music (a mixture of
Kraftwerk, Ramones, and Status Quo :-) but unfortunately, we
had to leave quite early after the beginning of the concert (at 1am) to
catch the last bus back home to our hotels. An early (7am)
wake-up call awaited us after this great, busy day full of surprises.
With this concert, the spectacular Plastic
Royale / James Bond Villain Collection Launch event was finished.
The event has generated a lot of buzz in the international press
