Months ago I bought tickets for the concert that Within Temptation would give in Enschede.
The concert was yesterday and I have to say it was awesome again. For Sanne it was her first live experience with Within Temptation. She only knew them from their bigger hits as “Ice Queen” and “Mother Earth”, but really wanted to see them once live. So Marion and I arranged together as a surprise a ticket for her (even being in the US Marion thinks of the ones that are dear to her :) ). I think after yesterday Within Temptation found a new fan :).
The concert belonged to their “An Acoustic Night at the Theatre”-tour. It was rather different then the other concerts I have seen of them. Lots of acoustic guitar work was involved. I have to say I really liked it.
And Sharon den Adel really a great voice. Clear, strong and a pleasure to listen to
The video effects during the show belong to the best I ever saw. Specially how the band-members interacted with the video-effects
Sadly there was no signing session afterwards, because I would love to have a signed CD by Sharon den Adel (the lead singer) and the other of the band. But somehow the place didn’t fit for that. Maybe the next time.
And of course I got the t-shirt. And Sanne was happy with the one I bought for her. It really looks great on her (she showed off later at her home :) ).. Luckily I could sleep at her place. My old parents house is not a place to be any more since my mother is taken into a nursing home permanently (about that more in another post that I will write soon).
On the brighter side, I have tickets for Katie Melua in December….
