STILL BUZZING …September 24, 2022 at 09:50 #40595JuergenParticipant
I am still speechless…
Did they play the Unicorn suite as an encore? Or parts of the Unicorn?
Even the first encore must have been 60 t0 75 minutes long…September 24, 2022 at 10:00 #40597TomcatParticipant
Encore, about half an hour long? Lost time within the second set ;)September 24, 2022 at 10:52 #40598otherdemonParticipant
I’m guessing both Knife Edge and A Time And A Place are ELP covers?
I know Ståle is a huge ELP fan, so it would make sense.
Anyway, great setlist and I’m guessing it’s the second longest MP gig ever (after the Ringnes gig last year)September 24, 2022 at 11:04 #40599
Indeed, Knife Edge and A Time and A Place from ELP. Pretty cool.
Exceptional show, in many ways.September 24, 2022 at 12:32 #40603
Thanks to Romain helsen for this.

Aaaargh! I’m shattered. Fucking fate, that kept me from participating in this monster of an event! They must have gone entirely mad: Chariot, ML/A and NOX in a row! Followed by a Unicorn encore and still not finished!
Downhill from here…

Still buzzing, indeed.
I tried to explain my infatuation with this band to a friend recently and told him there was a 15 year run (or so-ish) where every gig I saw with them was better than the previous one. And the previous one was the best gig I had ever seen.
This streak ended somewhere around the Jacco tour, no disrespect to him.
The gigs of the last two or three or four tours are yet again extremely solid, although maybe not quite up there among the best I’ve ever seen them do. Until Friday. Friday night in Het Depot just blew all the other gigs or of the water. And that’s without the classic MP song as encore. Friday’s gig was perfect. Sound, setlist, mood, it was perfect. And insane. Best ever.September 25, 2022 at 13:01 #40614SpacebanditParticipant
Howdy folks, great to read that there was a blast at Het Depot in Leuven.
Good to hear (smokesignals) that there will be an audience recording capture as well.

and it was filmed, right?
There was a camera + stereomicrophone behind the mixer, and small camera’s in the drum and side of the stageSeptember 25, 2022 at 15:36 #40616
