Press commentaries to the concert in Berlin´s Waldbühne
“The man is personified understatement. Most of his songs stem from the last century - nevertheless he has the Berlin audience in his hands. And rightly so. Berlin, 8pm, the hair lies perfectly. When Max Raabe enters the stage on Saturday evening he is welcomed by roaring cheers. These cheers are for a man with one of the most astonishing careers in German music business. No question about it: with the shrewd songs of the 20s and 30s that at best find a niche in small clubs, Max Raabe has reached the big audiences. He acknowledges the enthusiastic welcome with a mere nod of the head. After all, he is considered the Buster Keaton of German chansons.
