What is everyone's thoughts on this show? He isn't the only act but definitely the headliner.

Venue looks amazing. The front section looks like general admission.

Tickets go on sale at 4AM EST (Here in Boston)

I think Netherlands--> Spain --> Belgium would be awesome.

The Netherlands looks really nice, I think the Belgian gig will be a typical festival set (nothing too adventurous and kinda short), I don't know anything about the Spanish gig, but I guess it'll be a festival set list as well.

I've just been lucky enough to get 2 tickets! Waiting line for 45 minutes, lots of problems with the website and many people didn't get through, it already says it's sold out now, but I got two and I will be taking my boyfriend!

Since I've only seen Damien once before, I also decided to buy the tickets for Belgium, so I'm going with my mom there. Couldn't risk missing out on both shows, haha.

But even headliners only play for an hour or so on a festival, don't they.

I got 2 tix, for me and Claude �� although I still have to decide whether to go or not...i have tix for ANOHNI in London too that day. Also for next day so might decide to go to London on Sunday instead of Saturday ��
To me this setting reminds me of Damien's show in Chelsea. Although I really wish this one was seated all the way as well...

Hi Lys,

If you don't go could I please have your tickets?
I am a huge fan and I live in the village where he will be performing.

I could not get through this morning and it is just too sad that he plays is in my own village and I will not be able to go.

^ Okay, I was just about to ask Lys for her ticket if she's not going, but I guess you should get it
(If she decides to go, keep checking ticketswap.nl, July is still a couple of months away, I'm sure some tickets will pop up)

Hi Carroline,

Thanks ;-)

Can you imagine how frustrating this is?
I will probably hear the music from my own house and then not being able to go there will be just too unbearably sad.

I had tickets for Carre last year but I was denied entry because they were fake. That was pretty bad too. But then I went to Cork and that was a great show ;-)

Thanks for the advice, I will check ticketswap.

Gosh, same thing happened to me! Very upsetting
But a kind Canadian bloke sold me his ticket at the entrance, so I got in anyway. (the full story is somewhere on this forum)

I went to Ireland as well last year for the Dublin - Cork - Galway combo
Cork & Dublin were amazing, Galway, well… there's a story about that one on this forum too

Hi Carroline,

Very upsetting indeed! You were lucky, we just went away and
got really drunk that night ;-)

I read about Galway. Fortunately the Cork audience was more respectful.
I stood in the front and it was amazing. Maybe you have seen the pictures I posted.

Anyway, I just registered with ticketswap. Fingers crossed.

We must have been standing close to each other in Cork
There were quite a few eskimos in the front row.
(I think I remember seeing your photos.)

Anyways, good luck with the ticket hunt!

ps Caroline, if you're headliner in a festival you play 1h30 min or even more

No, but it's not that far from Amsterdam.

Hm, not the festivals I know. But I guess it depends.

It is in (the lovely village of) Baarn.
By train it is about 40 minutes from Amsterdam.

Is there any Eskimo out there who can help me get 2 tickets for this concert?
I live very close to the venue and I offer a free place to sleep in return for the golden tip.

Oh well, I just went and bought two tickets for twice the price hoping they are not fake this time. These tickets are like gold dust.

And so they should be because he is the greatest singer ;-)

my dutch friend just sent me this:

https://twitter.com/nijhofbaarn/stat...27000042307584

zaterdag verloten we de laatste tickets voor het concert van #DamienRice op @RoyalParklive
http://www.nijhofbaarn.nl/#/verlotin...g-crows-en-blf

she says some shop (a partner of Royal Park) is going to give 5 pairs of tickets (2x5=10) for all Royal Park Live concerts.
What you have to do is visit their shop on 2 and 3 July and they'll do a loting.

Can't wait till tomorrow, guys!! Going by myself (Rotterdam), because I have stupid friends who do not appreciate Damo the way he should be

Anybody else going by themselves?

Cheers!

Woohoo, I'm super excited for tonight as well! Can't wait to see how it'll be with such a venue. I'll be going with my boyfriend who isn't the biggest fan of Damo, though he appreciates his music and my love for him enough to go with me. :P

Default Magical night in Baarn

Some concerts are really magical and this was one of them. The location was beautiful, the weather was fine and Damien sang the stars from heaven.
