I really didn't think I would make it to Brussels because I have been so ill the past week. But thank god I got over it because I've just enjoyed a great weekend! Brussels was a fantastic gig, and the gig was pretty much sold out. The setlist went something like this (in more or less this order) - Into. Heavy metal thunder. Dogs of war. Motorcycle man. Still fit to boogie. Court of the crimson king. This town rocks. 20,000ft. Dallas 1pm. Broken heroes. Cut out the disease. Battlecry/Warrior/drum solo/Battlecry. Eagle has landed. Princess of the night. Coming home (first time played on this tour apparently). Crusader. Requiem. Encores - Solid ball of rock. Bass solo/Strong arm of the law. Denim & Leather. Guitar solo/Wheels of steel. 747. Sammi and I met up with Saxonmckenz, his girlfriend, and his mate before the gig for a drink. It was nice meeting you Saxonmckenz. It was just a brill time in Brussels. I would definitely go again. No sooner were we back from Brussels then it was time to go to the Astoria! Got there just after 6pm and couldn't find anyone from this site. But then after a while we ran in to Fingers and his mates. Had a good laugh and a few beers. Nice meeting you Fingers, hopefuly meet up at another gig. I thought it was funny that Biff tore up the setlist early on during the astoria gig. But then went on to play almost exactly the same set as Brussels! Apart from Bands played on replacing Coming home. And Crusader and Strong arm of the law swapping places on the setlist. And I don't think they played Broken heroes at the astoria, which they did in Belgium. Apart from that it was the exact same setlist. I must say there were some complete wankers down the front at the astoria. It never ceases to amaze me how stupid and ignorant some people are at the front at rock gigs. Still, all you have to do is bide your time and wait for the right song to come along, and wait for the crowd to go crazy. And then you accidently kick the fuck out of the tosser who has been pissing you off all night! Still, apart from that it was a great night and a great weekend. As Biff would say - "it was fooking fabulous"
