    For anyone interested in going to this, it seems there is a huge flight sale right now, with many carriers, from a lot of cities in the US to many cities in Europe. It looks like round trip from Atlanta on Delta is in the $400 range to Amsterdam for the week of this show. The fares are legit (I bought one to Bergen and to Rome last night) but no telling how long they'll last.

    Oh, I so wish I could go. I have the money but not the time. And of course it's the weekend right after ProgPower. Very tempting, though! :)

    Adding to dcowboys' comment about the international airfare sale (I've seen some amazing deals too, but alas I'm not ready to make plans to go anywhere right now) - make sure you also check places like Düsseldorf, Brussels, and even Eindhoven, because they're all fairly close to Tilburg as well - no more than two hours by train.

    Anyone know if the gig was recorded? I've only seen a little bit of fan footage so far and it wasn't that great.
