Gigs
« on: Thu, 2014-08-07, 19:58:27 »
Couldn't find a topic about gigs. Seems a good idea to me to create a thread where we can discuss upcoming gigs or gigs with great memories from the past we want to share. Here are the gigs I attended:

Gazpacho                                                   30/03/12    W2                           Den Bosch
Airbag                                                   22/03/14    Cacaofabriek           Helmond

It's a bit of a chaos but at least you get the idea. Don't know how to get it right, really tried ;).

I've preordered tickets for a gig on 27th September from the legendary band Focus with Thijs van Leer. He also guested on (an) Ayreon album(s). It's in my hometown, so I'll be walking to the venue. Never did that before as you can see.

Curious what you will post here ....  8).

I've preordered tickets for a gig on 27th September from the legendary band Focus with Thijs van Leer.
That was yesterday ... and I really enjoyed it! Though I didn't like every song, I enjoyed the skills of every single musician. All of them got the room to show them. The drummer is 68 years old, impressed what he showed last evening 8). Their hits 'Hocus Pocus' and 'Sylvia' were the highlights. Thijs van Leer announced all of the tracks in his special way with dry humour :).

And you? Any upcoming gigs or memories of gigs you want to share?

My wife surprised me with a ticket for a gig on 19th December in Hedon - Zwolle: Kayak 8). It'll be one of the last gigs with lead vocalists Edward Reekers (who also sang with Ayreon) and Cindy Oudshoorn. Such a shame :-\.

Just back from the Kayak gig, it was really excellent. What a great live band! Love this kind of symphonic music, Ton Scherpenzeel on keyboards really is a treat 8). Also the (harmony) vocals were awesome. Half of the setlist was from the new album Cleopatra ~ The Crown Of Isis and of course their greatest hit 'Ruthless Queen' was played. The mix between the vocals of mr. Edward Reekers and Cindy Oudshoorn was just perfect. Had a great evening *horns*. Now bring on the Arena gig at the same venue, just 15 kilometres away :).

Just read on Facebook that the Dutch neo-progband 'Silhouette' will play in my hometown Kampen on 18th April. They released four albums so far: 'A-maze', 'Moods', 'Across The Rubicon' and 'Beyond The Seventh Wave'. It is very keyboard oriented music, love it. Will definitely attend this gig 8).

The support act has been announced: Cartographer. Also a Dutch band, which only plays instrumental prog. Let's hear if they can keep me interested, because after a while most instrumental music bores the pants off me ::).

There is a chance that I will attend the Gentle Storm gig @ Hedon Zwolle on 3rd April. Not sure though.

And you guys, any concerts on the roll?

Was hoping to see Neal Morse in Zoetermeer but the concert is sold out.
That's it really.
Muse would be nice, but I won't buy a weekend ticket for Pink Pop just to see Muse.

Now it's 100% sure, another gig on Friday. Stream of Passion will be the support act. Exciting times 8).

And an astonishing gig it was. What a great singers are Marcela Bovio and Anneke van Giersbergen. And quality musicians were present on stage as well. It was *horns*. The Gentle Storm even played a few Ayreon tracks and some tracks from Anneke's former band 'The Gathering'. And a Devin Townsend track ;). Also 'Wish You Were Here' from Pink Floyd, just Anneke with an acoustic guitar was impressive! Had a great time, up to the next gig in two weeks!

Attended a gig in my hometown yesterday evening. Two bands for the price of just 6 euros ;). Cartograper, a Dutch postrock band from Tilburg, The Netherlands opened the evening. Technically they were excellent and they had loads of fun on the stage, but it was not my kind of music. It was instrumental and after about three tracks it got boring. at least for me. But okay, the main reason I attended this gig was the second band: Silhouette, also from Holland and they're playing keyboard oriented neoprog. But also the guitarist got the room to shine. Really enjoyed their performance 8). The band received the iO-pages award yesterday. The fans voted last year's album  'Beyond The Seventh Wave' as the best Dutch 2014 album. You can hear it on on Progstreaming.

Went to see Toto yesterday @ Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam, which was sold out. Great venue by the way! What can I say: Toto proved once more why they are still my favourite band. Nice setlist, perfect sound and the band played really tight. Toto forever!

No definite plans for other gigs in 2015 yet. Probably Riverside on 17th October, Hedon Zwolle. Very tempting :).

Couldn't resist, purchased tickets for the above mentioned gig today. Looking forward to it, the track from the new album I heard and an other teaser are sounding very promising 8). It'll be the first time I'll see them live. Read a lot of great reviews from the people who saw them at Night Of The Prog (Loreley) last weekend.

I attended the Riverside gig yesterday @ Hedon Zwolle. The support acts weren't my cup of tea, too metalish, but Riverside were in top form. They played a mix from new and old songs. Personal highlight for me was the song 'The Same River' from the debut album, goosebumps! They played for 1.45 hours. Mariusz Duda was impressive, both his bass skills and his voice. The sound was perfect, like always at this venue. Go and see them if you get the chance. Setlist yesterday:http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/riverside/2015/hedon-zwolle-netherlands-33f450ed.html.

Have fun!

Agent Fresco will perform on 9th December in Zwolle. Only 8,50 euro's, can't go wrong with that. Not 100% sure yet.

Just checked a few vid's on youtube but they sound a lot like Leprous.
But then a bit less agressive.

Seconded. There's one track with growls/screams on 'Destrier', which is called 'Angst'. Fortunately only 1:30 minutes. It'll be skipped :).
