    Kind of interesting that S/S are performing together even though she is also with a new partner.

    Do Savchenko & Massot know yet whether they are skating for France or Germany?

    I was there, and it was great. Best acts for me were: of S/S good bye skate with "Stay" from Hurts, seeing Stefan Lindemann again, Carolinas Bolero, and finally being able to see Totmianina/ Marinin :rollin: Peter Liebers rocked the ice rink. It was hard to pick a favourite performance.
    The one I missed (who was announced to come) was Florent Amodio. Has anybody an idea why he wasn´t there?

    Announcement from Ingo after the first show: there will be a next show in December 2015.

    Amodio is doing a post-Olympic tour with the rest of the French team. I'm surprised he was even announced as a cast member.

    I hope some pics & video will show up :)

    Amodio was listed originally on the website but I noticed his name was later removed.

    Thanks for these S/S show photo links!

    ETA: And thank you, Irish-Angel, for sharing your thoughts! :)

    Hi Lily, thank you very much for the pictures!
    Sarah Meier was as great and beautifully elegant as ever, with great spins and a nice footwork:) Unfortunately I can´t tell you to which music she skated. That was a little sad because for me it would have been interesting. No information in the program booklet as well:( The best thing for me was the ending, where the fans (including me) came down right to the ice rink and gave standing ovations to all the skaters and to celebrate all of them.

    Thanks for the report and the links to the photos. Sad to see their last show.(Is it really their last appearance together in shows?) It's nice to hear they were celebrated by fans in the very end of their career. Bitter and sweet.

    They are still listed on the cast of 'All That Skate' in Korea next week (May 4 to 6). I really hope that they will skate.

    Considered that with "they" you mean S/S, I don´t think so :(. It is rumored, that Aliona will skate with Bruno there. Robin has called off all shows.

    A great video! It's also good to see that arena is full and sold out. I had an impression that it's a bit hard to sell FS show tickets in Germany...

    A short video someone posted on Youtube:

    A bit of a mishap at the beginning :(, but overall it was great to hear the audience being so enthusiastic. Must have been wonderful to be a part of it.
