In Hemmoor, a cover band thrilled about 1000 visitors. (by Arno Grewe)
HEMMOOR. The city council had wanted an event for the citizens of Hemmoor on the new town hall square and had found an experienced organizer in the team of the Culturkreis. Thus, the first “Open Air am Rathaus” started on Saturday under the motto “Umsonst & Draußen” with the Pur cover band “Abenteuerland”. Shortly before the opening band, the young Stade trio “Dreiklangzelt”, took the stage on the town hall square, a heavy thundershower ended and left the visitors of the more and more filling town hall square celebrating in the dry for the rest of the evening at the “Open Air am Rathaus”.
“It was really packed and the audience celebrated properly and also peacefully,” Birte Zöllner, chairwoman of the Culturkreis Hemmoor, was pleased. When the Pur cover band “Abenteuerland” then entered the stage, up to 1000 visitors already populated the town hall square. The five guys from Braunschweig delivered a more than two and a half hour show to the concert guests, including some strongly demanded encores. Whether “Lena”, “Funkelperlenaugen” or “Drachen sollen fliegen” – the band around their enthusiastic singer Carsten Siebert had the wide range of Pur hits in their luggage. Not only the numerous listeners were blown away by the first “Open Air at the Town Hall”, also the Hemmoor city manager Dirk Brauer was enthusiastic and hopes after this promising premiere now of course for a continuation of the “Umsonst & Draußen” concept.
Since an association cannot do this alone, it is dependent on support. “We have to sit down together in peace and draw a conclusion. The donation behavior of many visitors was in any case already positive,” Birte Zöllner told our newspaper.
