Oh no, the Copenhagen gig is the day after the A'dam gig again.. - I hate it when the artists come straight from Holland they're always a little too... relaxed, should we say?..

Damn, I hate it that it's in the HMH,... but hey, will still try to get tickets.

Hopefully with more success than in Tilburg... as long as 3FM stays out of it...

I'm sure that's because of the thong guy who makes acrobats on a pole. You can never get enough of him. While smoking..

Mainly because I think the venue is too large for a Damien concert.

It's not massive (max. 5.500), but large enough to say that it's not intimate either

Could have been worse. (Ahoy for example!) The sound is mostly pretty ok. Have enjoyed most concerts I saw in HMH. When I didn't it just was since the bands were crappy. And when you are in time, you don't even notice how may people are behind you. But yes, it is more a band venue than a Damien-venue. Unfortunately the days of Paradiso (when I didn't know him...) are over.

Unfortunately...

And we're sorry Cille but Damien with a joint (somebody who can confirm it was a joint in Brussels? ) singing Cheers Darlin'... it's wonderfull. So it will be fine then

And you can come to Amsterdam... it's only that it's a big venue, but I'm afraid it will be in other countries as well in a big(ger) venue...

And I'm happy, although the beginning of July would have been better... it's like Damien touring now... have to finish a big paper this night because I didn't work so hard before (and was away to Tilburg and Brussels to see Damien and later on dreaming about Damien's concerts )...

I think he creates a certain intimacy, wherever he performs. I was in Cologne and it felt intimate, although the capacity was 4.000.

The good thing is indeed the quality of the music, it has great acoustics.

Well, what the heck, he comes back to our little country.
Nowadays he's big..... Maybe too big, but he plays and I'll be there for sure

FYI, The Copenhagen venue for the June gig is even larger than the (Paradiso-sized) one he played last week I don't know how many people it can contain but it seems large, like a large sports hall - I have seen David Gray there and it wasn't exactly intimate.

That being said, you are very welcome in Copenhagen - if the weather is nice it can indeed be a swell lil' city

Great that he's coming back to Holland for the tons of people who had to miss him last week... but the HMH... Terrible venue, so not-Damien. Too big and absolutely no atmosphere...

HMH is not too bad, I've been there quite a few times and have never been disappointed. It all depends on the artist if they can set the right mood there or not, and when Damien is in good form he definitely has the ability to make the HMH more intimate!

That being said, Vredenburg would have been nicer!

I am so going to be there. I don't care how big the venue is. All I see is the man on stage singing his guts out anyways.

Glen Hansard is playing with The Frames in Utrecht, the day before... 23rd of June... Is he going to be Damien's support act? With Marketa maybe? (i'm just hoping...)

How about my livingroom or backyard

Time changes.... Damien has become bigger, so the venues are also bigger.
I have to agree....he's someone you'll see in a small venue, with candles

i think the venue is really big but it's really nice there. saw there james taylor some years ago and it was really great. so i'm thinking of buying tickets for that show too now.
the show in denmark would be lovely to see too though....

Whaaaaat? expensive tickets!
and it's really weird that there are different ranks, usually it's just free standing/sitting at the HMH.
I guess standing tickets will be 42, side balcony 39 and the seats in the back 36?
