Last Fair Day Gone Night Tour 2011

20 years of Katatonia going strong calls for a celebration and we'll be going just that by throwing five very special anniversary gigs in Europe this coming May presented as the 'Last Fair Day Gone Night - An Evening with Katatonia' tour 2011

We've decided to play the entire 'Last Fair Deal Gone Down' album front to back as that's the one album that got us true worldwide recognotion for the first time, but 2011 is also the album's 10th anniversary so re-visiting this album seems more fitting than any other record we've done. A second set will follow that will see us play a mix of tracks from the rest of our catalogue. We'll be doing some fan favourites classics but also look into a couple of obscure B-sides and such that we've never or hardly played live before. Together you should get over two hours of live music on this last fair day gone night.


Dates and venues are as follows:
May 4th – Kulturfabrik – Luxembourg
May 5th – Stollwerck – Cologne, Germany
May 6th – Koko – London, UK
May 7th – De Kade – Zaandam, Holland
May 8th – Alhambra – Paris, France




Fuck I wish I lived close to any of these dates...

Ireland was once a province of Great Britain, but this was the source of epic anti-lulz so it is now an independent country famous for a number of things such as drinking, fighting, hating the English, leprechauns, terrorism, potatoes, drinking and killing the English.

Sounds cool but what's up with no Stockholm? Is it that hard to book a gig there? Are there that few venues to play at?

I'm a little baffled at all these contests though.....There were two other contests for the NITND album and i've never heard a winner announced, there was one for the guitars and another one before that that asked 5 questions about the bands past. I never heard a winner announced for either of these contests, what's up with that?

Fuuuuck.

Considering LFDGD has been my favorite album for 10 years now, I might just have to make it to one of these gigs.

The wife and I were planning on going to Italy/Greece for our 5 year wedding anniversary in June. Maybe I can talk her into bumping it up a month.

You should make this a seperate thread since I think you have an important point (band members do browse here)

This news has me totally distracted from important work right now...

...but... Last Fair Deal Gone Down? Like... the whole thing? Two hours set? Obscure B-sides? In lovely May?
No work can be more important that that! =)

Totally going to Cologne as it's so close I can see it from my balcony *haha*. Thinking about London as well because the Koko has an amazing atmosphere and nice peepz working there... can only recommend it!
But I have to work on fridays *frowns*... or I could just run off~

I'd like to go to Zaandam but I just don't know how :S it seems to be far from any hotel I've been able to find in the area, and I have no idea about public transport up there... I need help from Dutch fellows

Just bought me a VIP ticket, bit pricey at £90 but its katatonia so its damn worth it, heres the VIP details:

Quote:
Besides the standard tickets, which will go on sale this Wednesday Jan 19th, we’ve decided to reserve 70 tickets per show for VIP’s who will be up for some real nice treats.

If you’re one of those VIP’s you will receive a Katatonia tour messenger bag upon arrival filled with exclusive items such as a t-shirt exclusive to that particular show, an exclusive VIP laminate, a + 20 page tour programme (that we’re all busy writing as I’m typing this), a ltd edition vinyl of our latest album ‘Night is The New Day’ and a bunch more cool Katatonia merch items.

But that’s not all; all VIP’s will have a dedicated meet ‘n greet with the whole band so we can shake hands, have your picture taken and hang out for a chat! After that you can watch us sound check for about an hour where you’ll hear some songs from the set list and watch us prepare the show. Then it’s dinner time so you can go out and grab a bite while you’ll be confident to learn that your VIP laminate will allow you back inside the venue a bit earlier than anyone else, so you’ll have a smooth and free picking to where you like to position yourself.

Last but not least; right now we’re very busy talking to all our equipment endorsers for them to make some goods available that we’ll combine into one ‘grand prize’! All VIP’s will automatically enter into a draw for one lucky guy or girl to win this ultimate prize, which we’ll reveal the details about in the next coming weeks. See it as a nice extra bonus already and you can’t get disappointed….

Head over to the tour dates for more detailed information. VIP tickets are on sale as of now and standard tickets will go up on sale this Wednesday.

If you chose to get a VIP ticket you should be prepared to be at the venue around 2pm on show day. Exact times will vary per show but you’ll be notified in advance of all confirmed details.

We hope you’re just as much excited about this special celebration as we are! See you at the show and lets have a toast for the last fair day gone night!
Oh and the london show is going to be filmed for a DVD.
