My english writing is not very good, but even in dutch I can't find the right words for the last nights concert in Groningen. Just brilliant are the words(?). It started with a standing ovation followed by allmost 3 hours off Snow Goosebumps. Andy playing the gitar like........, yea, like what, like one off the best gitarplayers I have ever seen (heard). So pure, so full of passion. I also had a great time seeing Denis playing the drums like hell. It is ten years ago that I have seen Camel live, but yesterday it was as if they were never gone. Camel-music meant a lot to me in my live, and the last ten years it was 'just' following any news about the band and Andy. A few months ago I could'nt believe the news that they were goning on the road again. I bought the ticckets for me and my wife and it was worth every penny.
'I ain't getting any younger', Andy said with a smiling face when he announced the second last song.
I hope to see Camel on the road again next year. And one thing, a Camel ticket is priceless. If it would cost me a fortune I still would go........................................
Zitat von ProphetInTheWind im Beitrag #6Glad to hear it was a great concert. I'm dying to hear them live, but will have to wait till they make it to the US, hopefully next year :)
Yes, I heard some rumours about continuing the tour early 2014. Not sure where but probably Europe again.
The Groningen gig was awesome.
I also met some people I "know" from the 'roadkill' Camel mailinglist (and the 'echoes' Pink Floyd mailinglist) which was very, very cool to finally meet them 'in the flesh'.
It was fantastic to meet the band for the first time, and all were very generous with their time. Andy was a bit harder to talk to, as he was mobbed by fans! he did however tell me that Camel will be touring in April / May next year, but probably not the UK
