What can I tell?
The venue was the famous Paradiso club which is a church that was reconfigured into a club in the 70s.
The manager advised the audience to turn their cell phones off and to not take any pictures because the flashlights might ruin the video footage. They had the gigs filmed on digital beta cameras, two fixed and two or three mobile cameras to get enough angles. It was a seated show. Anneke told us were people from 30 different countries in the audience. They played for 45 minutes, took a 20 minute break, probably for the cameramen to reload tapes. Then they played another 45 minutes plus one short encore. Most songs were accompanied by animated video footage projected onto a big screen. The footage captured the mood of the songs pretty well.
Here is the setlist:
The Big Sleep
Red Is A Slow Colour
A Life All Mine
In Motion 2
On the second gig they played the same songs, but Anneke announced the songs slightly different and used different gestures while she was singing. Everybody who's seen The Gathering live knows that their performances are almost perfect. On the first gig Anneke slightly giggled while she was singing a line. I thought the performance of A Life All Mine was better on the second gig, but she got one word of the lyrics wrong then. It shows they're just humans, and there wasn't anything that lessened the experience. They got many standing ovations this night.
The acoustic of the venue, at least on the position where I sat, was close to perfect.
