First concert of 2020, Floor Jansen (from Nightwish) solo in The Hague. What a phenomenal singer and performer she is! And what a difference compared to the first time I saw her perform, supporting HIM in Amsterdam in the year […]
The first Coma Alliance concert in Oberhausen this year was the stuff of legend, so I was really looking forward to this show at Amphi Festival. This time it was just the three of them instead of four, but the […]
This was my first Faderhead show ever. What can I say? The atmosphere was so positive and energetic! Two kids in front of me were jumping the whole time, making me wonder what they put in their water. Definitely want […]
It was a bit of a shock for some people to open their Facebook timelines and see that Amphi was “cancelled”. Just goes to show that one should never trust the Zuck. Apparently it’s possible for one band of many […]
We had decided that Saturday would be our day at Amphi to take it easy, because Call The Ship To Port the night before was sure to be exhausting. It was, in a good way 😉 After the Solar Fake […]
After Solar Fake we were so drained we moved upstairs to watch Mesh from above. What a difference from the ambience in Utrecht earlier this year! Also funny to see the ‘pit’ invaded by all those blokes, whereas with Diorama […]
By the time Solar Fake took the stage we were already getting quite dehydrated, despite the cola and water we drank earlier. We were rescued halfway through the gig by Andre Feller who – with some help from a security […]
We didn’t really know what time would be good to start queuing to be in first row on the MS Rheinenergie for the pre-Amphi event Call The Ship To Port. But when we arrived and peered over the wall we […]
My friend Marianne had an extra ticket for this show, so I decided to come along to a sold out Kulttempel in Oberhausen …
For the first time in ten year, Mesh did a gig in The Netherlands. And that means I’ll be seeing them twice this year …
I saw Seadrake the first time at another Solar Fake concert, the album release party in Oberhausen on 31 August 2018. It was a great performance and so I was happy to hear they would be supporting Solar Fake during […]
26.01.2019, You Win, Who Cares? Tour 2019 • For this concert I would be writing a review for the Shadowplay fanclub and taking photos as well. So I had to keep my eyes and ears open to take it all […]
Wow, what a concert! This was the best possible start of 2019 and I’m not sure if anything can top it. Must. See. Them. Again.
Special Guest for the Coma Alliance concert was In Strict Confidence. They performed many old favourites, such as Seven Lives, Zauberschloss and Morpheus. Nice warm-up for the main act.
Had a great time during my first (and very hot!) Amphi Festival! And of course I would not ever let an opportunity pass to shoot yet some more Solar Fake pictures, especially not with the advantage of daylight. Enjoy!
