Initially, this concert had been planned as a special performance together with US composer and performing musician Terry Riley, pioneer of minimalist music.


Announcement from the TD web site

"Tangerine Dream & Terry Riley will have a special concert at the Alte Oper in Frankfurt on the Main on the 7th October 2007 at 8 pm.

The Master of Minimal Music Mr. Terry Riley will perform together with TD new and older works. The first half of the gig will be a performance of TD material only while the second half will be a collaboration between Terry Riley and Tangerine Dream."



Unfortunately the then 72 year old Riley had to cancel his planned Europe tour, so the concert was changed to a more regular TD gig.


Announcement from the TD web site

"Due to some health problems Mr. Terry Riley had unfortunately to cancel his European Tour which we extremely regret and hope that he will recover soon (he's over 70 years of age now).

The Frankfurt Opera House has now changed the concert on the 7th of October to a Tangerine Dream night only titled 'One Night In Space'. It will be a very special concert with TD tracks from all decades (no vocals) including lots of NASA space shots as backdrop movies.

Tickets already sold will remain valid for this gig. You will also see the largest merch stand ever with umlimited time to look around for some goodies from the past and present."



Tickets from the Frankfurt Concert

Notably, the first ticket, bought at an early date, still mentions Terry Riley; the second ticket was issued after the concert was changed to become a regular TD gig.

Thanks to Jacob Pertou and Peter Stoeferle for providing these ticket scans.
