After just 3,5 hours of sleep I dragged myself out of my bed. But ready and able to play in Zaandam. After when we arrived and carried all the equipment into the venue, we had lunch together. The people form the venue where very kind, and took good care for us.
De Kade is not a big venue, but a cosy one! They have this dampening material on all the ceilings, and that made that the sound is very good there. I liked it to play there! We changed a little bit in our set, as we have the luxury of having more songs than what is needed in the setlist.
Oh, and they took us to a fancy restaurant next to the venue for our dinner. And that was killer food! A nice starter of pumpkin soup, and a choice of salmon or chicken as main course. A real treat!
This concert we had around 250/300 people in the audience, and it was great to play for them, they where very alive! We had some great chats with the fans, and al in al it was a great gig. Of course our French friend Hylika was there again (as he was at all the Dutch and Belgium gigs) as well as Jose Manuel from Spain. And a lot of our other Inner Circle friends where there. Was great to meet you all:

Hylika uploaded these little movies of us playing in Zaandam:

After loading all of the gear in the van, and driving home I was in bed around 04:00 again…. pppfff… But had a great day!
