1  MELLENCAMP DISCUSSION / Tour Talk / Re: 26 june in the Hague - the Netherlands on: June 28, 2011, 02:31:41 am
Hi to all (guys),
I'm glad to read to see so positive response on the concert!
I'm a real fan through all his years, I've still got vinyl albums, Scarecrow, Uh-huh, John Cougar, American foor, and all the rest on CD. I think to buy No better than this on vinyl again just for the authentic sound.

I'm a gail and I'm jalous of Willem! I understand wat he felt, so close to him, lucky you!
JM  is still looking good for me, I remember the show 19 years ago, I've still got some great close-up pictures from that time, A litte bastard with big hair Wink I was then 23 years old and he was about 40 years old, and even then I was in love...
I must find this pictures at my attic, than I can put this pictures on this site somewhere.
I saw a lot of pictures taken and video's made, they probaly will showup.

I saw the setlist in Copenhagen en Berlin :

I think for the Hague concert he playes "Crumblin'down" for extra?

well fans, nice way to talkin'to you and to share JM's legacy with you all!

And Willem and Lex,

What do you think of the concert after D-day?
Personally, the film was too long (better waste the time for live music). I even thougt I've seen his whole concert in this film:-)
I think his concert was surprisely! With a very steady band, very good professionals, they all seem to disapear in this big background painting on stage (made by John I presume).
I'm very satisfied about his setlist, he played some old song with a new sound and his getting better when aging, his sound became very hard, I like that ROCK!
It's a pity he didn't give a bonus at the end, but on the other hand, he was playing over 2 hours! I sat on row 11, also a pity I couldn't see his face and mimic (too far) and I like do dance on some songs, was not possible in that place.

I'm even enthousiastic about his last CD, back to the roots, where it all began. He's a proud American, critical and politic engaged. I like his concern about the States, the world and especially the people. Keep on goin' John!
I hope to see him more often in Europe.

By the way, I saw a post that someone offers his ticket in France (Paris) for 70 euro, it's a that special front ticket (some where in the firts ten rows)

Who knows the setlist from that day?

Exact the same setlist as in The Hauge (the Netherlands) 19 year ago!

I'm so happy, after 19 year he's finally coming to Holland. Te last time I saw him twice in the Hague, 2 concerts I never forget. In my closet I've got still a "Big Daddy"concert. I've got even pictures from those concerts from John with his long hair. In that time I felt in love with him, I was 25, now I'm 44 year and still in love...

On the end even the band was playing Dylan's like a rollin'stone, I remember the fantastic band witn Toby Myers, Kenny Arnokoff, Mike Wanchick, Lisa Germano on the violin, 2 fabilous background singers, what a show they've made!

Are there some people still remember those concerts way back then, in the Hague?
I hope to see you all then on 26 juni!
