I personally wouldn't mind if I could go see them again tomorrow... ;D

Some stuff I forgot to mention:
  • FALAA was even better as the Tilburg version, it rocked quite a bit more...
  • Lucretia was done in a completely different way, at least another intro which was very nice indeed!
Also, I think this gig was less about Adam showing off, and more about giving one hell of a gig...

BTW: Did all of you guys look at the text screen? :D Great fun, you could send in your text messages which would get displayed, I wrote:
Heartland welcomes Von to this Raspberry Reich where all believe in Robochrist and Doktor Avalanche heals, sadly the pic I took went all blurry :(

There was another HL text, but don't really wholly remember that one, and some funny ones like a couple of Von-lovers (we want to get backstage, especially with Eldo (ps Goth Rules)) Don't think the PS was a good idea :innocent: ... Also there was 'The m*****n Rules' and 'when's Hussey coming' :lol:

Sadly he did not have his 'Kiss me I'm Eldritch' pin on :(

Pictures of it all: clicky (have to get me an extra account or so, can't fit the last 30 pics in)

it was incredible, the show had a very different vibe than the Tilburg gig (partly becaus it was outdoor) but the band seemd to play even more energetic this time.
adam and robochris Rockd the place down and VON was clearly having a good time.

in the chaos infront of the stage I found a old familiar-> Randdebiel² (if you people still know him?)
other than that a big :notworthy: to Eva, Helen and Andrew S
and to the other nice people as well ofcorse

sssst...I'll tell about that as soon as possible :wink:
and like I promised, here I am, from a temporary computer since mine is still broken....
it was definitely one of the best gigs I've seen yet (topped only by AB Brussels 2002(the free gig) and Eurorock 1998)
about that special thing.....has anyone used as much as I did? is it normal that my heart is still pounding? it's the only thing unusual that went through my body yesterday, so....
I was wondering if he put a speed derivate in it :lol:
I haven't slept all night because of it....ah well, it was worth it :D

the most important thing is: great crowd, great sound, great light show, the sisters themselves in better shape than the last years, and that emma-thing (y)
one to remember, definitely
I'll try to get hold of computers the next days to read further about this :innocent:
shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather....

i'll do about anything for it... (unless some1 has a better recording..lol...)

:notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:

Will you upload the whole gig, or will it only be available through trades?

It had sound for me. (It wouldn't play for me, said the file was corrupt, but I used virtualdub (direct stream copy) and that repaired it.)

Thanks for the video christophe. Now, can anyone upload an mp3 of the full song. :D

Quicktime worked well for me, and the Emma-riff really gives a shiver down my back. I really like it! Hope they play this one at Mera Luna.

I know, I noticed it only when I posted it :oops:
So I changed it quickly before anyone had seen it, :lol:


At least... That's what I thought...
