2008-01-26 Hardenberg

reviewed by Rianne

I just got home from the concert in Hardenberg; it was quite a long trip there and back, but well worth it. To start with the best news of the evening: the venue, which seats about 400 people, was practically sold out!:) The venue, called "De Voorveghter" is an enormous building that also houses a movie theatre. Not long after I arrived the audience started to arrive as well, and by the time I took my
seat to the side of the hall the place really was full, but for a few seats here and there. I always love it when it's such a full house, and I think it must be far more motivating for the guys than a half-full theatre, however enthusiastic the people in that half-full theatre might be!

Afterwards, the director of the theatre agreed with me that the concert had gone down a storm, and he is actually thinking about getting them back for next year!
The song list was the same as in Vlaardingen, but I'll just copy it down for completeness&.

Anecdotes:
- Our brand new musical director did absolutely great again. I think he felt a little more confident this evening (CT audience doesn't bite&.), and I really hope he (and Robbie) enjoy themselves during this tour. Such a long tour sure is a baptism of fire if ever there was one!
- James persuaded me to mention that Daryl's pronunciation of the next city on the tour list (which he announced on stage&..) made it sound like&.. Nah. Let's just say that the city is called "Bussum". And use your imagination  it sure gave the audience a laugh!! (and for the record: it's actually pronounced Bus-sum - the first half as in the vehicle and the second half exactly as in the math problem).:)
- Matthew and James mentioned Kenya on stage, which prompted quite a few people to come and see the folder and generated ¬ 30.

And finally: there's a picture of the evening in the gallery of the official sitehttp://www.celtictenors.com/gallery
