(and they're all super nice and they all signed my CD :wub: )
But which of those were actually band members when The Ideal Crash was recorded? Tom and Klaas, but that's it, I think.
Still pretty cool. I'm jealous.
Sure only Tom and Klaas are left, but I don't mind. tehe It's the 20th Anniversary edition and they all played the 20th Anniversary Tour :lol:
To me dEUS has never been the same without Stef and Rudy. On the other hand, those two made some incredible music of their own throughout the years, so I shouldn't complain.

Last week I went to Primavera Sound, in Barcelona. I saw a total of 6 shows, 5 of which by artist I greatly admire, and it truly was something else. Despite how much I hate these big-ass big-town festivals, seeing Nas, SOPHIE, FKA twigs, Danny Brown (who played a song from his new album, which sounded like 'Grown Up' meets 'When It Rain's production) and Charli XCX (who also played something off her new album, featuring Christine and the Queens) in the same night was something else. And FKA twigs's show was just drop-dead gorgeous, unlinke anything I'd ever seen.

I saw Fleetwood Mac yesterday, and I loved them just as much as I expected. Neil Finn is a worthy replacement of Lindsey Buckingham (though I did miss his voice). However, I was pretty bummed that the show stopped half an hour earlier than planned.

I went to Ayreon yesterday. They played Into the Electric Castle entirely and added one song for each of Arjen's other projects: The Gentle Storm, Ambeon, Stream of Passion, The Guilt Machine, Into the New Real and Star One.
Fish was also participating, just like on the album from 1998. Unfortunately his voice is totally not what it used to be. In one song he was also off by two counts for four lines and needed some assistance from the guitar player to get back on track. As a special encore, they played Kayleigh with Fish on vocals of course. It was the only uninteresting part of the show: a lame song sung by an old man.
Rest of the show was amazing. Had goosebumps many times. I felt a strong united feeling among the audience because of witnessing something special. There were people from 64 different countries present!

How did you find the time to go around asking all those people? Also, are you sure you got 'em all?

Ticket sales kept track of that I guess. It was told by Arjen when he made a speech. Around me in line outside and later indoors I have heard lots of different languages, so I'm not doubting that number. You have to consider the fact that this isn't part of a tour. It's one show played four times in one weekend in one city in The Netherlands. Then it's done. The album was released in 1998, but was never played live, just like the other albums by this guy. In 2017 he performed with Ayreon for the first time with a best-of show. This is the second time he's doing this (not counting the musical performance of The Human Equation in which he had no participation and was a disaster behind the screens). So an Ayreon-show is a big deal among fans and they come from all over the world to see this.

Just got back from Riot Fest. The only two bands I recognized that I heard were The B-52's (the reason why I went) and the Village People. There were a few others that I watched while waiting because I wasn't going to leave my spot (I got there early for obvious reasons. Front row :wub: ). Oh my gosh, the Village People were twerking onstage and the ones that play the leather guy and the Native American were showing off their abs.

That was my third concert this year (after Lizzo and Brandi Carlile). The only concert left I plan to go to this year is Ladytron in December, unless anything special pops up.
