Cheers for the clips and photos, and hello to everyone I met last night. :notworthy: It was truly a great gig, and I'm very glad to hear Burn, I Was Wrong & VT retunred to the set. The Sisters were on great form, but to be honest, I was most unimpressed by Blutch. Apart from that (and the bald prick Paul & Donna referred to), it was one of the best gigs I've seen of this tour. And the AB does great orange juice, which I really needed afterwards. :notworthy:

thanx Pat :D it was an exceptional evening and I'm still very much in an aftershow high/haze... Although there are a lot of bruises, neck-pains and stuff involved (my right upperarm is blue/purple/yellow... it looks like the lightshow to Summer :innocent: ) I am happy happy happy!




And thanx Ghostrider for giving that Ternat-weed to Obviousman, who passed it on to me 8)

I noticed :lol: But then finding your way around there is a bit harder wasn't it :eek:

Must say tis a lovely review indeed Koen, very much sums up all of the atmosphere. I didn't do the break-thingy and arrived at 13:10 (:eek: Wanted to see the tourbus arrive, but it was already there :( Enjoyed the sun a great deal nevertheless 8))

I'm really wondering where I should rank this one in my Sisters giglist. Hard work :lol:

thanks for the review radiojamaica I think you mentioned everything :innocent: (nice tohear you got home safely, I went for a drink when you dropped me at my car, must be around 3.30 when I left Antwerp :innocent: )
indeed the support BLUTCH was one of the best ways to get into shape for the show. :twisted: I don't get why only we liked them.

This gig was abso-f**king-lutely brilliant! 8) :notworthy:

Tonnes of energy, enourmously lovely crowd (for it was crowded in there!) and quite a nice support band (though I think there were only about 5 of us enjoying it, very heavy guitar stuff :lol:).

First time I was in the mosh pit and very much enjoyed it, took me lots of energy but definately was worth it :notworthy:

Top moment: Neverland, Still, Alice, Giving Ground, Burn (:!:) actually all of it :lol:

Very nice to meet some new HLers: Frederik and his lady, libby and Joerie (get yourself on here! :P) and for just a moment Ghostrider (who'd brought along my weeds :notworthy: Ace people, especially enjoyed the after-gig drink :D

Obviously - as ever - it was an absolute pleasure meeting the 'old' crowd (Koen, christophe, Andrew S, Eva, ...) was great too, always a pleasure to meet you guys! :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:

(I'll be getting a proper review and pics online anytime soonish, when I'm past the after-gig high :lol:)
was there a mosh pit? :innocent:

I was afraid (GF for the first time present) because I had read much bad reviews lately.

But, this was the best gig I ever saw of them. Brilliant. Good sound, goood smoke. Nice version of Lucretia, btw.

Thanx for the lovely evening, I should say :D

Don't think so.
Were on the first floor balcony. Me and the girlfriend and another guy...

Arrived fairely late in Brussels, so no time to mingle.

Good to hear the three of you got home safely (Christophe en Zeno)

I KNEW I attended the wrong show!

I went to the first Brussels gig to hear Burn, and what do we get?

The SECOND gig they play Burn AND the New Song!

Argh! :evil:

The intro was just going crazee, wasn't it ;D

I wondered if I'm the only one to think about it this way - just came to realise this more or less - whereas on the previous two dates (Paris and Brussels I) Ben & Chris 'played Sisters songs' they had gotten into them muchly by now and were really playing them like they were their own and also their playing together has improved over the past couple of weeks? (you know, spice it up by pulling the strings a little bit more in between the regular notes)

Chris plays his guitar like a stand-up bass in Top Nite Out and pretends to conduct Ben. I think that says it all 8)
