• Support act: Maria Lux.
• Attendance: 11,000.
Sting performed on the first day of the 37th edition of the annual "Hessentag". The site were the show was played was nothing more than a large parking lot. The sound wasn't too good.
The setlist was a diversion of the setlist during the last few months of the main part of the "Mercury Falling" tour. The show (95 minutes in length) was shorter, because The Hounds Of Winter, Let Your Soul Be Your Pilot and You Still Touch Me were omitted.
Clark Gayton was replaced by Pete Beachill. It was obvious he was a new member in the band and it looked like he wasn't well instructed about the show and the dance parts. Most of the time he tried to copy Butch's movements, but was just a bit too late. It seemed his body wasn't in the right physical shape to jump and dance much.
Sting sang I'm So Happy I Can't Stop Crying completely by himself, no one from the audience was invited on stage.
Kenny added some scratch sample to Englishman In New York.
