Duke Garwood (7/10)
Start 20:15 / End 20:45
Duke Garwood was recently called by Mr. Lanegan “one of his all time favorite artists” and their collaboration was defined by him as “one of the best experiences of his recording life”. Together they have just released their debut album “Black Pudding”, and the choice of Duke Garwood as opener couldn’t be more appropriate. His hands moved fast and accurately on the two guitars used for the set, generating a Blues Rock black as the pitch. His bass and warm voice and the Passionkirches scenario made the rest to create a magic atmospheric and heat the soul before Mark Lanegan.

Mark Lanegan (8/10)
Start 21:00 / End 22:15
It’s hard to introduce with few words a character as Mark Lanegan, who made starting from the middle of the 80s the history of the Rock, changing from Grunge to Alternative Rock, until today where his music is marked primarily by Blues Rock. It’s hard even to mention all his collaborations or former bands: Queens of the Stone Age, Screaming Tree, Mad Season and Nirvana above all the others. Just to give an idea about the weight of Mr. Lanegan in the Rock scene. Dressed in elegant dark clothes, Mark Lanegan came punctually to the stage, accompanied by his band, whit Lyenn on the bass (who played for about 20 minutes some solo song with just the guitar before the Garwood’s performance) and Duke Garwood on the saxophone. The altar of the sold-out Passionkirche, a church of the first years of 1900 build with red bricks, was a magnificent stage for the Blues Rock proposed by Lanegan and band. For about one hour the audience could appreciate his baritone voice, scratching softly their ears with the acoustic songs from his last work “Imitations”, some pieces from “Blues Funeral” and the magnificent “Halo of Ashes” from the  time of Screaming Trees, with which Lanegan closed this amazing show. One of that concert where the minutes just fly away and at the end you are just sad because you need it more, but happy at same time to have had the possibility to attend it.
