Looks nice, and of course I pre-ordered this more than fine album, but I'm a bit disappointed with the extras that goes with the album.
I've expected a bit more.

That's also what I thought. There must have been unreleased demos or something. Or an instrumental mix of the album, I would buy that without hesitation. I haven't preordered yet. I might do that eventually, but perhaps I won't. My cd is still sounding really good! For a fan, there's not really anything in this. And I hate to sound bitter, but what does it mean to be a fan of a band nowadays?

We'll see, perhaps I'll buy it on one of the gigs in Zoetermeer or Zwolle. Anyone going?

Yep, purchased tickets for the gig in Zwolle. A bit strange though, on the 4th of May. At 8 o'clock P.M. two minutes of silence and then going to the gig ::) ;).

Yes. I also thought of that. What a contrast. First remembering all who died in the war, and right after that an Arena party. ;D
Btw, are you always going alone to concerts? I find it hard to go on my own.
Part of the fun of experiencing music, is experiencing it together, and talking about it, etc.

For example, I want to go to the Treshold gig this Saturday but no-one wants to come with me... :( Not even when I offer to pay their ticket, haha! ;D

Buy the new releases of any kind instantly, without questions. ;)
A joke of course but I know what you mean.

I was thinking about going to Zwolle for a change, heard good things about the venue. Never been there before. Is it any bigger than de Boerderij or just about the same size?

That's weird. I know there will be people who have to work on that day but you'd though that when they book artists, they would keep this in mind.

About half the gigs I go on my own. Other gigs with wife, friends or family.

Yeah, but not when the band is playing  ::) ;)

It's about the same size and both venues have a balcony. But the last time Arena played in Zwolle the balcony was closed, not enough tickets sold and I fear the worst for the gig on the 4th of May ... Hope I'm wrong though.
