Berlin - Travel & Accomodation

Well - I've booked my ticket for the Yello concert.

I'm just about to book a hotel (which is near one of Berlin's airports) but I don't know what the public transport is like in Berlin.

The hotel is about in Schonefeld (?) about 19KM from the centre of Berlin and the Kino international

Is there anyone who can advise on the best public transport to use to get around Berlin?

Thanks

I’m sure public transportation there is great. I would just look it up on google maps. They have a public transportation option.

Are you coming to the Yello fan meeting at the bar beforehand?

I just looked up the google maps and it seems there’s not public transport feature there like here in US.

Here is something with a free pdf map

Julz thanks for the info.

I'm hoping to attend the fan meeting - would be great to meet up with other Yello fans!

I'm very excited - I got my Touch Yello ticket in the mail this morning.

I think the organisers have done a fantastic job for this event so far - even the tickets are cool!

Looking forward to Berlin.

This is one of those events where if I don't go will regret it for the rest of my life!

That makes me feel so much better about not being able to go. . .

So...why doesn't yello do other of these shows in other countries. They look really uncomfortable doing concerts (I saw the concert at the roxy) What about interviews on shows like Conan o'brian, David Letterman or on Rove(Australian show like Jay Leno, he's from Perth too.) :roll:

Although Dieter has said that Yello are more of a studio band, wouldn't something like Touch Yello be ideal for performing say in London, New York etc.

At least fans from around the globe (USA, Austrailia) would have more of a chance of seeing the concert.

Does anyone know if both both Boris and Dieter will be attending the concert in Berlin?

Exactly, it would be great if this unique show was arranged around the world, I'm sure that would be greatly appreciated in many parts of the world, looking at this forum, we have people from every part of the globe. And Yello don't treat their fans too generously with this sort of presentations in general, not even talking about world wide shows.. 350 tickets for the whole Yello community.. mmmm.. that's very limited.

We could try to (somehow) pitch the idea to one of the tonight shows in the US to at least check out Yello's work and see about inviting them to perform.

Of course I have NO idea how this can be done though.

To invite any group not a problem, but where to find the sponsor who has paid the invitation.

To ponashim measures to turn down to itself on a party of the Russian executor, or popular group costs from 20.000$ до50.000$ and above.

Hardly yello will do round, across Europe it is not real.
All music registers in studio.
And to play and lip-synch easier itself not to respect.

Sorry for my bad english. :(

Plus they don't feel comfortable on stage as far as I know, after all they're a synth pop group, they can't just perform a Yello song without an awfully un-crowdpleasing synthesizer, unless they had an entire orchestra of people with an object or instrument each. . .
