I was doubtful after finding him doing some IMHO poor cover versions of 80s classic hits for some Oz CD Release, but he has also been to Germany recently. There were a few recordings of that gig incl. live performances of Babies, Flame, Face to Face and God Tonight on YouTube - except for Catch me I’m Falling all seem to be removed again by now, unfortunately. These performances appeared quite good to me, so I bought a Ticket (42€) for one of their upcoming shows in Germany. On Feb 9, 2020, given earth still exists at that date, they will play in Hamburg. If anyone else from the forum is there I‘d happily like to meet you there.

My favorite track from Real Life has always been this one, specially the extended version. I had this on vinyl back then in the 80's

See http://www.reallifemusic.net - they have released a compendium of snippets from their new album with the nice name „sirens“ which is announced to be on iTunes etc next week.
Personally I find the new tracks very disappointing as they clearly reflect Sterrys limited songwriting skills. I hoped he took advantage of the cool band that supports him on tour to create something more original, maybe even more contemporary. Whatever - this is just my opinion, and I am sure other than me many on the forum will love the new music.

Back from the REAL LIFE concert in Hamburg. What can I report? David Sterry was sympathetic. More than I expected. Really. The show itself has been relocated to the smallest venue available, probably due to the minimum sales. I felt sorry for the band as well as for the people buying VIP tix guaranteeing them a meet & greet plus 4 items to be signed and a VIP area in front of stage (which wasn’t available due to the tiny new location). I think prices for that were like 120€ whereas regulare tix were about 50€ - which I felt was quite optimistic.
Sterry and band played a nice set of Songs, but unfortunately most of them felt very mechanic, they lacked drive. I felt like listening to some kind of cover band that came together for the very first time (thinking twice, probably that observation isn‘t too wrong). I might sound harsh and I really feel sorry for that, but that was how I experienced this shorty of a one-hour show without encore, even though the audience really made clear they wanted more.
A short hello from the band after the show - no.
How does it leave you seeing a band you once loved after a quarter of a decade? I stroll home, looking forward to the next show of alphaVille, Iron Maiden or Ghost.
