Wed 2 Jan – Danny Cavanagh, Anneke van Giersbergen
Whenever you expect bad traffic, it's not there! And thus I ended up arriving in Tilburg around 18:15, 2 hours before the start of the concert. About half an hour later I ended up entering Little Devil and settled at the bar. Slowly the place started to fill up.
Then it was time for Danny's set. I already knew he was looking forward to playing together with Anneke, so it was no surprise he was in a great mood. While it was very busy, I managed to get a very nice spot as for some reason no people went to the side of the stage. While the setlist was the same as in Zwolle with a few songs taken out, the pure passion and joy in the performance actually made this a better show in my opinion. Of course the crowd all actually came for the music and didn't go into annoying chatting during the music. That makes a world of difference!
The opening song was Fragile Dreams
, which of course is an Anathema classic in its own right. …
