Live Volles Programm Review

by Christian Genzel

In 2011, Bap celebrated their 35th anniversary as a band and frontman Wolfgang Niedecken's 60th birthday not only with a new studio album (Halv Su Wild), but also with a two-CD/DVD live box set called Live Volles Programm. The set gathers three different concerts by the Cologne-based rock band: the DVD features Niedecken's birthday concert, performed on a boat on the Rhine on March 30, 2011, with guest performances by Gentleman and several members of De Bläck Fööss. The first CD captures the concert Niedecken played with the WDR Big Band on May 27, 2011, with Bap classics rearranged by Mike Herting, while the second CD features Bap's open-air show from August 25, 2011. The box set is rounded off by some bonus features, including a new version of Bruce Springsteen's "Hungry Heart" and a short movie called Rebound im Kongo, which documents the work of Niedecken and Jack Wolfskin's Project Rebound charity.
