"Who`s goin`nuts with us?"
Now We're Packing In The German Fans
“When we hit the stage, all hell breaks loose” says Slade singer Noddy Holder.
“...we'll make you all crazy!”
High heeled, silver platform boots, large checkered, 'too short' trousers, glitter jackets, glitter on faces, a photo of Slade pinned to the chest like a medal and the famous Noddy Holder Top Hat on the head – the fans dressed themselves for the biggest show Slade ever played.
“We want Noddy, We want Dave."
“It`s the best feeling in the world, when Teens are getting crazee cos of our show, when everybody`s going berserk, stomping and raving around, then I know we are getting it right!”

I remember a two page announcement in the "POP" Magazine late October 1973 announcing a Slade Tour in November but it was just five dates... Mannheim, Munich, Frankfurt, Hamburg (the promo Footage) and the other date was possibly Vienna (not in Germany)."
