Just came back from the gig and uploaded some photos I'd taken.

I went to the gig with a friend who'd came from Moscow especially to see Omega... our own NotAProghead (me on the right):



one more picture of Eugene and his lovely wife Natasha:



The concert was opened by some medium-interesting (musically Wink) Polish singer:



After the support act finally THEY appeared:





Mecky (the vocalist) entered the stage as the last one. He was so brisk as if he were in his 20s and that's why it was very hard to take good pictures of him He was all over the place!















Ferenc Debreceni banged at his drums fiercely!



Then, explosion of colours:









Mecky!



Keyboard wizard László Benkő really knows his craft:





There was one more keyboardist supporting the band:



György Molnár also rocked on his guitar:







Play of colours:









And again:























And finally:










And to make it even better - autographs of the whole band on my ticket!!!




All in all it was a really great gig! Greatest hits live! They age as well as the Stones.

BTW, the gig was dedicated to Czesław Niemen. They were friends and planned a joint gig but Niemen died...

Ouch indeed...

Anyway, you had a great time, and took some awesome pics. This is what counts.

BTW - who was that support act? Please tell me I'm just imagining that it was Bajm...

Jelenia Góra, almost the end of Poland - 1,5 h to Wrocław and then 5 hours on the InterCity to get to Warsaw
 
bit closer to Prague, therefore I've managed to see Van Der Graaf Generator in January
yet you still have time!

Haha, well spotted - anyway, sometimes it is easier to organize longer trip but in a straight way than visit to place, that is closer but uncomfortable to get to.
And it also depends from the band - come the IQ gig in Warsaw and I am there without complaining about the inconvenience of the road  Smile If you only heard the story of my attendance to Polish Van Der Graaf Generator gigs 
yet you still have time!

Addig elj,
Ezust eso,
Eletfogytig R&Roll,
Lena,
Start,
Napot hoztam,
Csillagot,
Ha en szel lehetnek,
Nem tudom a neved,

Though I've heard OF them many times, I never actually heard them.
What would you compare their sound/style with?

Great pics and great report, TuzviharClap Clap Clap

I've found a video of "Gyöngyhajú lány" from 'our' concert: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x8p7xn_omega-in-warsaw-2009_music
(unfortunately it is not from YouTube and I can't insert it in the post).

At last I have more ot less stable internet connection. I hope tomorrow I'll post here photos made by Natasha.

^ It's much better than a link only. 

Definitely I want to see Omega again. Natasha already asks me whether we'll be able to go to Poland in May, to the gig in Sanok. Smile
