Concerts: Helene Fischer on tour again: "I'm doing fantastic"

Helene Fischer emphasized it several times during the evening: "I'm extremely emotional today," she admits to her fans on Friday in Cologne's Lanxess Arena. "For us it's like a second premiere tonight." It feels great to be back on stage - after a two-month summer break, "but of course also because of the injury". Because her last concert in June in Hanover ended abruptly after she injured her face with a trapeze bar and left the stage bleeding.

The second part of the "Rausch" mega tour, which includes 71 concerts, is about to start again in Cologne. The hit queen will play seven of them in Cologne by September 2nd - according to the organizer, more than 100,000 tickets have been sold.

Daring acrobatic scenes again

"As you can see, I'm doing fantastic," Fischer calls out to the fans. "You guys so deserve this show - you've been waiting for it since March." Because the spring tour started a few weeks later than planned because the artist broke a rib while rehearsing. Therefore, among other things, the Cologne concerts were postponed.

The Schlagerqueen shows nothing of her previous injuries on Friday when she takes part in some daring acrobatics scenes. So she swings through the air again on the trapeze. "Of course I set myself the challenge again, I really wanted to do acrobatics," she says after the number. "But I'm only human, and mistakes happen to me." It's all the better that everything went well this time.

"You can believe me one thing: I'm not careless. We did everything very, very safely and we just want to enjoy a nice show together," Fischer assures the viewers.

About three hours of music

They sometimes hold their breath during the aerial acrobatics, but otherwise they sing, clap and celebrate loudly. The Schlagerqueen presents around 28 songs at the three-hour concert, including songs from her current "Rausch" album, but also many well-known pieces such as "Achterbahn", "Phänomen", "With no other" and of course her super hit "Atemlos durch die Night".

Sometimes the singer stands in a circle of fire, sometimes in the middle of a waterfall, often she is surrounded by dancers. "I've got goosebumps all the time today, I don't even know what's going on," she says, pressing her hands to her chest.

Luckily, the concert is accident-free. As usual, the exceptional artist delivers a perfect-looking show. In the end, the majority of the audience goes home satisfied - and Fischer, in his own words, goes "blissfully to bed". Her conclusion: "It was a magical evening."
