11.10.2007 - The World's A Big Place - Live DVD

In January 2007, mesh toured five German cities as headliners for the "elektrisch!" festivals. The gig at Kulturfabrik in Krefeld (near Dusseldorf) brought this extraordinary tour to a successful close and will now be released on DVD. mesh swept along their audience with an energetic performance and an interesting setlist. Songs from the current album "We Collide" alternate with classics such as "People Like Me (With This Gun)". The changeful moods are underlined by video projections in the background, creating an impressive atmosphere, especially for contemplative tracks like "Room With A View". But a mesh concert is always good for simply having a party, which is guaranteed by such powerful songs as "Step By Step" or "This Is What You Wanted". The new live DVD also features extensive bonus material, including backstage and studio footage. The faithful mesh community has been waiting long for such a DVD that holds up the memories of a great evening – and those who never attended a mesh concert are now able to catch up on what they have missed. The first 2000 DVDs will be released as a numbered limited edition, including the whole concert on 2 audio CDs. The price for this limited edition is 19,90 Euro (plus shipping). Currently the artwork gets its final polish, but the tracklisting is set already (see below). Preliminary release date is 23rd November 2007 but pre-orders mailed to svenja@majorrecords.de will be accepted.

09.03.2007 - mesh news March 2007

We are back in the studio at the moment piecing together all the audio tracks of the live show we did in Krefeld for the DVD, the video footage is being edited in Hamburg. The show itself was fantastic and the crowd response was great. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came along to the show (and the other shows of the tour) for making it a memorable night.
At the moment we have not got a firm release date as there is plenty of work to do first, watch this space...

Amsterdam, Ahh... P60 that will be a night we won’t forget in a hurry. If it could go wrong it did at that gig. We had sooo many technical problems that night it even resorted in an impromptu acoustic version of "Can You Mend Hearts?" What a laugh... just goes to show we can do it live if we have to, MTV unplugged... no problem ;-)

Ok, now the apologies... We are really sorry about cancelling a couple of shows during the tour, but both shows were out of our control. One was to do with the promoter and the other due to severe snow weather warnings in that area, we did not want to get our tour bus stuck in a snow drift.

There was also talk of us playing in Warsaw Poland in May, this was never really confirmed and will NOT take place now.

Sorry to anyone who has sent us any letters or packages recently, there has been a mix up at our PO box and none of them had been getting through to us until this week. This has been resolved now. We will reply to everything ASAP.

Thanks again for the support.

Best wishes
Mesh
