In a facebook comment someone said individual tickets would be available sometime in August.

It's in Berlin. Not in Munich.

Because Berlin doesn’t have beer halls, and even if they did it’s against the law to drink Bavarian beer in them.

Good to hear that this is something that might happen.

Missing out on the Vienna concert bugged me massively, but I have a more relaxed relationship to this now. First of all, I find the prospect of it actually happening very uncertain - given the pandemic situation. Second, I have constant financial trouble, which means I'll gladly take a cheap standing ticket. If I don't get one and/or if it doesn't happen, for whatever reason, I've saved the travelling costs. In short: If it happens, and I'm able to realize it, great. If not, I'm fine with that too.

I might go, who knows. I'm optimistic about it.
I've seen John Williams twice in concert so far, but the Berlin Philharmonic is really tempting.

I just got the booklet for the upcoming Berlin Philharmonic season and this concert is mentioned:

Sat 16 Oct 19:00 (New York 13:00)

Berlin Philharmonic
John Williams conductor
Bruno Delepelaire cello

John Williams - Film music from Indiana Jones, E.T., Superman, Harry Potter, Star Wars, etc.
Elegy for violoncello and orchestra

This booklet does not mention additional concerts with the same program for this and other concerts in the season.

Ticket sales started this morning. I managed to get a good seat for the Thursday concert. All three concerts are already sold out. It took less than an hour.

For those who are interested. The Saturday concert will be available in their Digital Concert Hall which means there will be a live streaming.

Surprising. I suspect at his age and with his intellect he will be vaccinated. But does he really want to risk traveling this far and to a country which is still far from reaching a vaccination rate that could prevent October to be a super spreading time?

Damnit, I had no idea these went on sale today frown

Germany is currently a "green" country. Hopefully, it is that in mid October too. As for Williams' health and age, that is always a gamble at this point. He cancelled the London gig in 2018 (which I attended), but came through in Vienna last year (which I did not sadly attend). So fingers crossed!

I also got a ticket for Thursday, even though I had to pay out of my nose to get it! €59 is more than I've ever paid for a concert, I think. And it wasn't even the most expensive ticket -- it's in the nosebleeds section at the other side of the orchestra, meaning I'll see it from behind, but can at least stare Williams in the face.

All tickets were cheap - half the price than in Vienna.

'Cheap' is in the eye of the beholder. I live far below the poverty line, so €59 is about a week's worth of dinners.

Cheap, compared to Vienna. But yes, it's still a lot of money.

Is the concert a benefit for the orchestra or pension fund or something else? Many of the maestro's U.S. appearances have been charity gigs.

Vaccination rate in Germany is now higher than in the US.

Vaccination rate in Germany is now higher than in the US.

But, unfortunately, we're still only slightly over 50 percent fully vaccinated, with infection rates rising like crazy since school holidays are ending now and people returning from their vacations. By October the virus is suspected to become widely spread, especially with too many declaring their reluctance to become vaccinated as "personal choice" and a general election in September having too many right-wing politicians jumping on the same idiot train as in other countries.

Way to bum me out, WillGold, LOL! Let's just hope for the best for now.

Sorry. Just stay careful, all of us!
