The singer is on record: "Live Videos were becoming more and more documentaries that focus on technical and distanced way, on the Performance of the Band. The light show and the led's support the Performance of the Band only, but they have no meaning. In "Act II" is different. Here, everything has a meaning, every little Detail is of great importance, because it is not only a Live-recording, a Live documentation.
In the Video of each Song was used to transport the feelings I wanted to bring live at the Show. I wanted to get as close as possible to the feeling of how the audience might have felt that evening.
We have used additional Material, video clippings used, photos, and graphics, as well as light and reflections, changing colours and moods created, distorted images and slides used. And sometimes, we have to maintain the pure image, because everything has to be transported, what we wanted to Express.
"Act II" is not a Live Video, it is a Live-type Video, and everyone is invited to discuss it controversial; this is exactly what I want."
