Been to just two gigs this year (a lot for me): saw the girls back in March in Paris and in Utrecht on December first. Great gigs!

In 2012 -if they tour again- I would like to hear:

On the Wire
Emma
Valentine
Gimme Shelter
Jolene

What can I say? They are awesome classics!

Yup, it was a great gig :notworthy:
The moment the sound went dead I thought for a moment that I had gone to one concert too many! Glad that wasn't the case! LOL :-)
I'll certainly be there next time the girls are in town!

I won't been able to make it to Stairway to Heaven - will be having dinner with my better half in the best Chinese restaurant in the country tonight :) - at least that WAS the plan, turns out they open rather late - not sure if I want a rushed dinner!

Utrecht is cool :) Too crowded half the time though. But then again I'm used to the vast emptiness of DK ;)

Re: Seventeen years

While I don't know the exact date, it occurs to me that the last Sisters release, Under The Gun , came out in August 1993, i.e. more than 17 years ago. Inspired by the Duke Nukem Forever list... Seventeen years is longer than: The whole of The Beatles' recording career. Twice over. (1962-1970) The ...

Some people (including myself) think it's annoying to see people going to a gig, standing there with their arms crossed whining about the bad sound, the expensive drinks and the fact that they hear a bass , but don't see a bass player ... Not to mention the bimbos that think that they are too cool ...

Good news is; I found out that O'death isn't supporting at all, but performing afterwards in the small room. Bad news is: show starts at 20.30, which i think is a typical Dutch habit. Ok, the band deserves decent bed times, but not me. To me that's very good news :D I live in Soest and have work th...
