Wow, this was a show to remember. Yesterday evening Roos and Ed (thanks for the invitation guys!), Jeroen (thanks for the ride :-)) and I went to the second and final concert of Anouk in the Gelredome in Arnhem, Holland. And it was very impressive. It definitely entered my concert top-10.
Anouk was really good: her voice was brilliant, I didn’t hear one false note. And her new band was great as well. Very tight sound, and they played with a lot of energy. Also, the lights were done tastefully.
A show of Anouk these days isn’t only about rocking the place. There also were a lot of ballads, which isn’t surprising if you know her last two albums ‘Hotel New York’ and ‘Who’s your momma?’. But fear not: the two guitars were really going wild in Jerusalem, one of my favourite tracks on HNY.
Off course, I Tumbled, Twittered, YouTubed and Flickered my way through the whole experience. And you might want to check out this video I made of the ballad ‘Sacrifice’ halfway through the show. It starts just after the intro and consists of the remainder of the 4-minute-song.
