    Yes, the band especially Jack moves a lot. Mark Kendall is an excellent guitar player, I think. I met Sean and Audie before the gig and we chatted for a while. Because I'd been waiting for a long time Sean went back in a got me a couple of his guitar picks!

    Hmmm.

    My next gig will be Tempestt, a brazilian band of hard rock. Rather unknown band. They will come here with Jeff Scott Soto. So, usually me and the people i know usually refer this gig has the Jeff Scott Soto gig! :lol:

    After i'll try to catch a few small local acts.

    In April there's Nightwish.

    And when Summer comes: IRON MAIDEN. Gonna see them here and in Spain.

    I'm in for a real progmetal-feast tonight with Symphony X, Circus Maximus and Dreamscape ......

    Some of you have already seen this package I think? How did you like it?

    And Astrid, will you be there as the Circus Maximus bandrep, too?
    Really sad about PPUK though................

    No, my bandrep duties were for PPUK only.
    I saw the Dreamscape/Circus Maximus/Symphony-X package last Saturday in Zoetermeer and it was truly awesome. I hope you'll have loads of fun Madrigal!!

    Been to that show as well, excellent gig, although a bit too crowded and dark during the SX set.

    Still working on the Dreamscape and SX pics but the Circus Maximus pics are done, if interested find them at:
    http://www.havermout.net/gig2.php?naam=Circus%20Maximus&datum=2008-02-16

    Haven't decided what to see tomorrow yet, it will be either Vengeance around the corner or theNAME in an other town.

    They sound quite good on their myspace. What was so bad about them live that had people running in the opposite direction?

    I'm most probably going to see Firewind this Friday...I have not been that excited about a band since I first heard of Threshold back in the late nineties with Freaks. So far every song I've heard by Firewind sounds great.

    Yeah. They are a very worthy band. In the beginning, when i first heard of them i thought they were 'just another power metal band', but soon realized they had so much more to offer. And when i saw them live they really delivered the goods (altough i saw them with Henning Basse from Metalium replacing temporarily their original vocalist, Apollo Papasomething).

    If you haven't heard anything by Firewind, I'd suggest you check out their myspace for some killer tunes
