Wilhelm13 , Oldenburg
Leo-Trepp-Str. 13 26121 Oldenburg

It was a great show in Oldenburg. The audience loved John Gorka because they wanted a lot of "zugabes" and John loved the Germans after 23 years because he played nearly 2,5 hour!

Click here for the special page about the Wilhelm13 concert in Germany. You can find the Radio Bremen zwei recording (nearly 2 hours!) en six videoclips with very good audio...

John Gorka played "Carnival Knowledge (Second Hand Face)" in the "Gashouder" in Dedemsvaart during his tour in the Netherlands in October 2017. He didn't play this song (from his 1994 "Out of the Valley" CD) live for 20 years.
That's way this is the first "Carnival Knowledge" live clip on internet.
