PAUL MANZI SHINES, NEW ALBUM AND TOUR IN 2011
At the sold out gig in Holland, Paul Manzi made a big impression and really established himself as Arena's new frontman. His voice perfectly suited the Arena material sung by the three previous vocalists and furthermore brings a new raw, rockier edge that complements Arena's heavier direction. The first track of the gig, the heavy new track The Escape, proved beyond a doubt that Arena are alive and kicking. With not having played for some time and little rehearsal time, the set wasn't without faults, but this was more than compensated by the energetic performance and the great vibe between band and audience.

Clive stated that the new album will be recorded over the summer of 2011 and that the release is slated for late September, followed by a tour in October/November. The working title is still The Tinder Box, but the album will get a different name, not revealed yet. Clive looks further ahead with tentative ideas for a further two albums after album number seven. Keep an eye on this page, interviews with Paul, John, Clive and Mick will be posted soon!

Great pictures indeed!

Have made pictures myself, though from a lesser quality but I'll share them sometimes this evening.

It was a great concert yesterday in Zoetermeer!!!

Me too. I think I should've put on something black, not green.  ::)

Thanks, Nicky. I'll pass the credits on to Timo (who has some difficulty signing up for the forum but I think we'll encounter him here soon.)

You bought a t-shirt from that merch-guy that was hassling us, right? ;)

Niquicho

yeah, I did. :-) I bought  the smallest size, an L, but it feels like an XXL. I'm hoping for a dried-too-hot resizing effect, changing it to an M. Maybe next time I'll buy a girly... :-*

Hehe, I'm having the exact same problem... I can't believe I bought it, but oh well, it's all for the greater good of keeping Arena alive. ;)

I got a girlie t shirt but they only started at medium and im usually a small but its wearable. I must say the merchandise guy was very persuasive and its a really nice top.

Niquicho

He's very persuasive indeed. Maybe he could go only promoting not only shirts but the band as well. Next year Arena will be playing Lowlands, Glastonbury and Werchter without a doubt!

There was another guy that was REALLY persuasive. With words, not by means of drowning people. ;)
