Don't know anything about Genesis, but The Frames isn't sold out yet and won't be for at least a few weeks (but maybe it will never sell out). If you come from Schiphol (the airport of Amsterdam ), there's a direct line by train to go to Utrecht... that'll cost you half an hour. And then it's 10 (if you get lost 15) minutes by foot to Tivoli Oudegracht (where The Frames play).

But if you want to go to Amsterdam first... don't know how long that'll take you, but from Amsterdam central station it's half an hour again to Utrecht. So it's faster to go directly from Schiphol to Utrecht... you can see timetables on www.ns.nl

And if you want to buy tickets for The Frames... go to www.ticketmaster.nl

Oh, by the way... The Frames are playing the 24th in Holland too... for free! At Parkpop in The Hague, we don't know what time yet, but if it's before the Damien Rice gig, we'll be there too .

Thats really useful thanks. I will likely go straight from the airport though it will depend what supplies my sister wants as to how packed my bags are.
Dilemma for nexct day then-stay in Den Haag and be close to sisters place and miss amien or try and do both of those too! I recall coming back from a night out in AMS a year ago and I had to wait 4 hours for the Central station to open again and got stuck with this American guy who droned on about teachign guys guitar-was ok at first but thought he sounded a little dodgy as he had a young guy with him.....
Thanks anyhow and I may see you at some of the dates then!
I have my Genesis ticket which sold out ages ago.
Cheers
Lenny

You're welcome There's a cloakroom at Tivoli too... so you can leave your bags there if you need it (or in a safe at the central station). Both costs money, but you don't have to go to Amsterdam first .

And about the trains... there are night trains between Utrecht, Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam and some smaller places in between... Every hour there's a night train although it's kinda far to travel by night train from Utrecht to Rotterdam or the other way around, because you stop at Amsterdam, Schiphol, The Hague etc etc until you are at the end of the line in Rotterdam (2,5 hours or something). But you don't need to travel that during the night, so it'll be fine . Just keep the timetable in mind so you don't have to wait for almost an hour .

Good luck and hope to see you at the Frames gig in Tivoli! I'll definately be there (and at Damien's too, but that venue is a little bit bigger ).

Hm, we're also considering to attend the Frames gig in Utrecht. I actually prefer Glen's solo material, but heard they're a great live band, so... hmpf.

I would have loved to see damien again in Amsterdam, but the tickets are too expensive for me. And nobody wants to go with me, so I'm not going. I'm glad I have already seen him in Tilburg a month ago.

Somebody on another forum attended me on something new... (????)

On the Mojowebsite (uhh... don't know what they do exactly, but it's realible...
On this site it says:

Quote:

Heineken Music Hall, Amsterdam ZO
Uitverkocht
artiest(en) Damien Rice
voorprogramma Vyvienne Long and Joel Shearer
aanvang 20:00 uur
start voorverkoop za, 7 apr 2007

If Joel and Vyv are still in Damien's band as well... yes.
But otherwise: NO!

But I don't really believe it to be honest.

Did anyone try to find out whether it's true? Emailed them or something?

I'd really like to know if it's true. Actually I've been thinking about it before I read this, cause I really really like Vyv's EP and Pedestrian's "Ghostly Life". Would love to hear Joel's voice singing more than just background vocals...
It would be sooo cool indeed.

Hey, heeft iemand wellicht nog een goede overnachtingstip in Utrecht van zaterdag (Frames) op zondag (Damo) die ons niet al te veel geld gaat kosten. We zijn een beetje laat en het low-budget begint een beetje een probleem te worden

heh heh I have just asked my brother in law to translate this to the tune of something like -Last minute attempt to get budget accommodation in Utrecht and Amsterdam? Bear in mind I had to attempt to speak this over the phone but he either understood me or was just being polite and has nothing to do with what I just said!
I am lucky enough to be based in Den Haag albeit not exactly close to these gigs but not sure what a night in Utrecht would be like then simply get a very late train?
Let me know how close I was/am?

I was actually only looking for a budget accomodation in Utrecht, but hey, close enough! We don't really feel like travelling both saturday and sunday, so it'd be nice to just make it a weekend in Utrecht. Are you attending the Frames gig?

Default Hi Accidental

Yes I will be at the Tivoli for the Frames gig-I had hoped to see them NYE but my flight got cancelled from the Isle of Man (only 25mins away) because of severe weather! Now is my chance. Aiming to catch Glen and Co Sat,Damo Sunday and ahem Genesis the following Sunday!
So Mr+Mrs A.Baby attending the Glen/Damo gigs then?

Well, apart from the fact that there's no Mrs A. Baby, the answer to that would be: yes

First time seeing The Frames.

Default Show time

I can't make it to The Frames I wanna hear them live once.

Does anybody knows the show times, 'cause the news of 29 May was Damiens performance will commence earlier than normal at the following shows as there are no special guests performing on the night. Door and stage times will be announced nearer the time on the live page.
Haven't seen any more info yet....

Little bit moreinfo on mojo.nl.
Aanvangstijden (onder voorbehoud):
20.00 uur: Vyvienne Long en Joel Shearer
20.50 uur: Damien Rice

Artiesten
Damien Rice Voorprogramma: Vyvienne Long and Joel Shearer
Onder voorbehoud means with reservation (if that is the correct translation), so nothing is for sure...

It almost must be true, with both Mojo and HMH saying the same thing. So cool! Love to see Vyv doing her thing.

Pedestrian (Joel Shearer's band) just confirmed that they're opening for Damien tonight at 8 pm... Don't know about Vyvienne, maybe she'll play with them

Be there on time
