07/15 - First Military Tattoo St. Gallen


We went there after we'd been to the Basel Tattoo in 2011. Basel was absolutely awesome... but to be honest, the 1st Military Tattoo in St. Gallen wasn't as good as expected... some kinda disappointing in some parts...

Honestly... would you expect an Udo-Juergens-Medley during a Tattoo? I wouldn't. App. 30 minutes of "Swiss folklore meets bag pipes"... a big fail.

Luckily the Military music from Salzburg, the Knabenmusik St. Gallen, Billy Jordan with the future drummayors and the Massed Pipes and Drums made a good show.

I also grabbed a bottle of the special bottling of the Arran which they'd for this event...
