Final Tour 2019
The Journey started nearly 30 years ago: Atari computers, Drummachines, 4 Track Recorder, urntable, guitar and bass and a lot of musical ideas. With his project "Escape with Romeo" the ideas of Cologne based guitarist and singer Thomas Elbern became reality.
The first record was released in 1989 and from here things start moving: their song "Somebody" hits the clubs.
and EWR became a full band, touring and playing in Germany, creating a huge fanbase.
As you can see in the last video, which is a remake of that classic song "Rattle in your cages" from 1992, Thomas Elbern, Singer, Songwriter and Gitarrist vanishes in the desert.
2018 did mark the start for the final tour.
As a classic 4 piece (Git, Bass, Key, Drums) they will play destinations for a last and the first time, where they have made fans and friends. Spain, Poland, Switzerland and lots of destinations in germany and now Belgium.
And for W-Festival they will play all their classic songs that made them so popular in the dark wave and electronic scene one last time in Belgium.
