Yeah, but the venues are only half the size this tour! I’d rather have a 3/4 filled venue than an overcrowded sold-out venue though, makes for much nicer and more comfortable circumstances. But I kinda agree, it’s nice they went back to smaller venues and actually sell them out.
well, if i compare the last year Paradiso gig (half full) with the Doornrooje gig (jam packed) i agree that Paradiso was more comfortable, more space, but the Doornroosje gig had a much better vibe. But maybe that also was because i had seen them in Paradiso a few times before, and this was the first time it wasn’t that crowded.
In 2006 I started working as a tour-booker for bands and ever since I do devote all of my available time resources to my agency, my bands and my concerts (http://www.magnificentmusic.de). I could simply not find the time to maintain the blog any longer, which breaks my heart, really. A lot of work and time went into the blog, in busy times several hours per day and it’s just not possible anymore. It’s particulary sad to not be able to maintain the Concert Chronology any longer because this has always been my favourite pet.
