The twenties in Berlin – the “sin Babylon”: Back to the Friedrichstadt, the infamous entertainment center of Berlin, which was still infamous from the Empire! The Wilhelminian splendor persisted, now affordable for everyone. A turbulent chaos, accompanied by the sounds of industrialization. Frantic, nervous, breathless – that was jazz. But basically there was the blues.
The Tour is telling about the prelude to sex, drugs and rock’n’roll!
