Well... it's a weekend... so you can't say "I can't go to the gig because I have to go to school/work the next morning"! ;)

:D Yeah I know.
But it's on a saturday and I'm used to go to church on sunday morning. ;)
It's not a really big issue, but it means I need to have a train back to home... and that means that I am bound to train travel times...

Or...

Or someone gives me a ride back home! ;D Anyone??

I'm just wonder did there will be more dates..... in other countrys.... and sure I have only two of three Shadz albums .... of course would like to get that 'best of...'.... and maybe this one what I missed... or maybe after those twelve years Shadz will make new album with fresh and true Shadowland sound  *ola* ::)

The main plan is to see how things go with these gigs.. and the sale of the 'Matter of Perspective' (best of album with new material).
It would be great to do more Shadowland stuff, and we are hoping to play at least a few more gigs later in the year.

So.. support us now, and we'll stick around..;)

Gary Chandler was great, although his guitar went out of tune all the time (at least he said so - I didn't notice quite as often as he re-tuned it). I'm not familiar with Jadis, so please don't ask me for songs... I just know that I liked what I heard!

Same for Shadowland - GREAT gig!! - but I really think you should all go and see yourselves! I wouldn't want to spoil the fun for you. ;D

Went to the gig at the Boerderij in Zoetermeer yesterday, wonderful gig and a lof of fun!! *horns* Great to see and hear Shadowland live for the first time (first time for me that is). Excellent setlist which more or less contained everything I wanted to hear (the more or less part = Half Moon Street and Through The Looking Glass :P). Although Clive dubbed it "the danger track" that brings bad luck, they did play U.S.I. which is one of my absolute favourites. I really had been looking forward to hear it live, expecially the uptempo part with those infectious keyboard riffs. The epic Hall Of Mirrors was an unexpected and very welcome suprise and the new track Edge Of Night was a real treat, makes one long even more for a new Shadowland album!

Clive, how about releasing an Edge Of Night EP/single, for those like me who have the three original albums (i.e. the SI versions of the first two, which I prefer because of the artwork and nostalgia over the Verglas rereleases, no longer available anyway) and therefore don't need the best of album but are sadly missing no less than four tracks of the concise Shadowland catalogue:

Edge Of Night EP
1. Edge Of Night
2. Dorian Gray
3. I, Judas
4. So The Music Stops

One can alyways ask and hope ::)

Anyway, the setlist was something like this (don't remember the exact order):

1. A Matter Of Perspective
2. The Hunger

The Whisteblower
Mephisto Bridge
The Kruhulick Syndrome
Painting By Numbers
The Waking Hour
Hall Of Mirrors
Edge Of Night
The Seventh Year
U.S.I. (United States Of Insanity)

11. Jigsaw

Encore:
12. Dreams Of The Ferryman
13. Ring Of Roses

P.S. Cool to see Gary Chandler wearing the T-shirt of the so-called  Luv Ambassadors World Tour, the Jadis/Shadowland tour from the early '90s.

But seriously, could it be included in the upcoming DVD? Preferably as an audio bonus disc of course 8) Maybe as bonus material on the DVD? Would be great!

I planned on going to see Shadowland in Zoetermeer, but in the end I couldn't quite make it. Judging by your review I missed a great gig!... :-\

But at least my uncle bought the 'new' cd for me, so I'm gonna pick it up later today. Looking forward to it! :)

Too bad, you sure did miss a great gig! But there's a live DVD coming up from the gig in Poland, so you can still see/hear them live indirectly. Is the Matter Of Perspective album your first Shadowland album?

No, my dad (you sure remember him ;)) has Ring Of Roses, so I have heard that one a lot! Great album!

Yep of course ;) Then you will certainly like the stuff from the other albums as well. Ring Of Roses is great, but Through The Looking Glass is my favourite of the three and U.S.I. from Mad As A Hatter my favourite Shadowland track.

Yeah, there doesn't seem to be any detailed info around yet on the net. The new Shadowland site is up and running now, but doesn't tell yet. I browsed the cd tracklist briefly at the gig, can't reproduce it, but thought it was a neat selection and U.S.I. is on it ;)

The one of yesterday's gig in Frankfurt? VoilĂ , here it is:

- A Matter of Perspective
- The Hunger
- The Whistleblower
- Mephisto Bridge
- The Kruhulick Syndrome
- The Waking Hour
- Painting by Numbers
- Hall of Mirrors
- The Edge of Night
- U.S.I.
- The Seventh Year
- Jigsaw
- Dreams of the Ferryman

Encore:
- Ring of Roses


setlist, details...?
Well, sadly Clive managed to get a cold right in time for the tour, so he's losing his voice more and more... at the gig in Verviers it wasn't actually that bad (at least I think not too many people noticed), but last night was really tough (must've hurt!!). Mike and Karl did their best to help with vocals, but it was still quite painful to see/hear. Nevertheless the band seemed to have a good time on stage, considering the relatively small audience. I took a few pics and will try to upload them here.
