    And facete tumultum it was! This was like an MP marathon, was it 3 hours? Everything was there and lots of it; headbangers, singalongs (yes, Neverland, great fun with Reine going entertainer), some classics (577, Hogwash) and some fantastic spacy, ambient jamming. I'm sorry, I'm not able to reproduce the setlist in the right order, someone will, probably, I was intoxicated by sound (and sound alone, although the bro & me drank some bitter lemons, ha!). Strange thing: no Lux Ae, the other 2 were played though, I found the Crucible very endurable live, but with Pchychoczar the prolonged outro I don't like that much, the song is great, compact the way it is on the album, if you ask me this is a song-song as opposed to a jam-song. But that's nitpicking, the evening was epic (again) and the crowd went crazy, very supporting atmosphere and clapping and cheering going on forever. Finally in the 3rd encore Fools Gold, the prolonged chords struck at the end of the song seemed to make us feel we were indeed going into eternity here. Wow! There is only one rockband in the world.

    Great, intense show indeed! Somewhere halfway Hogwash they played a snippet of War Pigs (Sabbath) I believe

    Thanks for that setlist, ffbernie. Was that you filming in the front?
    By the way, the namedropping game in The Other Fool continued: tonight we got to chill out with.......Supersister! ( Dutch group from the seventies)

    Fantastic! Hope they keep mixing it up like that. How long were "Lacuna/Sunrise" and "Dreamhome"?

    All electric songs were long and massiv. I got somewhat blurred in the sound sometimes.
    Lacuna/Sunrise with Snah on a oneneckguitar, and a very spaced jam - it received a long applause.
    A detail was that all songs during the set were sung by Bent. Many of the concerts I saw over the years allways contained many Snah songs.

    Sjit, I was hoping for 577 and Hogwash in Groningen... now I'm a bit afraid we won't get them...

    Always thought he was Arie Haan!

    Really good concert this one! The band was in a great mood with smiles all around. Especially from Bent when Reine threw in that War Pigs snippet during Hogwash. Don't think Reine stood out this much during other concerts I saw of him. Maybe because I could actually hear his parts this time

    Couldn't really get into Lacuna. Sounded pretty cool, but the jam seemed a bit aimlessly. Other jams were all spot-on tho with Dreamhome as the big highlight! Can't wait to hear a recording of that one.

    And yes Bent mentioned that Neverland was their least liked song, guess they still check out the forum now and then =p Hoo hoo!

    And Bent sang really nice and audible this time. Overall the show was great. In my humble opinion the sound was great. Only the xylophone played by Tomas was lost in the noise. Thanks for the playlist.

    Was it Supersister Bro? For a moment I thought I heard "Twisted Sister" ;-)) Have fun in Vera, Groningen

    Only if you read the posts from the vocal minority, but thats okay, it doesn't matter anyway. It's still those with the least to say that will be heard..

    I like "Neverland"! More than "The Promise" anyway. But obviously that's just a minority vote...

    Neverland; a master popsong, and why not, if someone like Corey Taylor can get away with singing Spongebob, the Netherlands win the %$#*îng Eurovision songcontest with that Duncan guy, why not enjoy and sing along with Neverland? I don't even believe it's tongue in cheek, it's just their happy poptune and I'll always love it, even in the 'barbershop' version they played this night! Same goes for Go to California, which I see as the twin brother/sister of this song. And in a show it brings a welcome contrast to all that heavy stuff, i.m.o.

    I loved it.
    Heavy shit. I lost it on Hogwash.
    I'll have to applaud the crowd, though. So quiet, so, so quiet. Don't think I've ever *not* heard the crowd during a Dutch gig. Brilliant.
    Not sure i would have put either Bubbles or Neverland on a wishlist before the gig, but hey, ho, I thoroughly enjoyed the entire onslaught!
    (They better play Lux in October/November, though... Just sayin'...)
    That Fools Gold... Mama Mia!

    Bubbles surprised me as well, liked this groovy version even more than the 2013 Uberpilgrim. And I think this performance of Fools Gold is the best I've seen so far.

    And Stardust is already up on Motorpsychedelic clips! More incoming, Bernie?

  26. Just watched Dream Home video, thank you ffbernie. It is 19 minutes long, with a seamless transition to Om Riff/Master Builder at around 15 minutes. Setlist should read:

    Ship Of Fools
    UberPilgrim
    The Other Fool
    In Every Dreamhome (incl. Master Builder)
    Stardust (acoustic)
    The Crucible
    Lacuna Sunrise
    Psychotzar
    Hogwash
    577
    ------
    Neverland (acoustic)
    the Tower (incl. Hell Part7)
    Fools Gold

    Do we have the sound of the whole gig? ffbernie? Rune? Any chances of a complete sound recording being torrented/shared?

    Google translation:

    Sizzling floating therapy at Motorpsycho. This was not a concert, but a space mission. The only goal that the show of the Norwegian trio Motorpsycho seemed to have on Sunday in a sold-out TivoliVredenburg was: to swing all spectators as far as possible outside the atmosphere. What felt like an endless journey towards weightlessness turned out to be an unparalleled rock show that lasted no less than two hours and fifty minutes. In short: mission accomplished. Motorpsycho has been in existence for thirty years. During that time, the excentrics from Trondheim released dozens of records on which they played at least as many styles. What started as grunge-like alto-metal gradually changed into dream pop, hip-rock, country, jazz, etc. In recent years the band has been floating in a multi-colored bubble of psychedelic (prog) rock. The average length of the songs grew exponentially, the number of tracks per record fell drastically: The Crucible, which was released this year, only has three. Live singer-bassist Bent Sæther and guitarist Hans Magnus Ryan turn out to be explorers who descend improvisingly into the deepest corners of their own notes and deliberately get lost there. Almost every song they derail halfway through, to completely turn it inside out, and then see where it ends. In this way the band explores the oeuvre down to the very fringes, from hard to ultra-soft. This sizzling floating therapy, that is what the psychonauts - as the Motor psycho fans tend to call themselves - have come to for. After almost three hours of booming guitar roar and intense near silence, they all landed nicely on their feet again. Rock Motorpsycho Heard: 19/5, TivoliVredenburg Utrecht Frank Provoost

    The review was in the printed version of this newspaper as well. I've been a reader of the NRC for over 20 years now, and that was a first, for a concert or a record. About time!
