Prince 1995 Ultimate Live Experience in Holland (by guest author Edward)

Personal memories of the 4 ‘Ultimate Live Experience’ shows Prince staged in 1995 in Den Bosch and Amsterdam. A magical time for Prince music lovers!

U.K. Subs

3½/5: Very entertaining show by U.K. Subs, who raced through their set within an hour. Great evening!

Closing Of 2019

Closing of 2019. What was good? What wasn’t? What were the main events? What blog stories were favorite? A look back at 2019.

Fırat Tanış

4/5: A great closer of the concert year 2019. A beautiful story by Fırat Tanış accompanied by beautiful songs performed at a very high level.

Sibel Can

1½/5: Bad show by the Turkish diva who came to Europe to steal money from her fans with an inferior show.

FKA Twigs

5/5: A definite highlight of 2019 and a night I won’t ever forget. FKA Twigs at Carré in Amsterdam. Impressive, moving and special.

Altın Gün

2/5: This was not Altın Gün’s night. Dispassionate, grumpy, the atmosphere was way off. Too bad.


4½/5: Underworld conquers the Amsterdam Ziggo Dome effortlessly. A fantastic evening with perfect sound, impressive lighting and a phenomenal setlist.

Taksim Trio

4/5: Surprisingly good show by Taksim Trio, which consists of three Turkish virtuosos. Lots of Sezen Aksu!

Ibrahim Maalouf

4/5: Ibrahim Maalouf at a delirious Paradiso with an 11 piece band on a heightened stage. At times breathtakingly beautiful.

Sheila E

3½/5: Sheila E in Alkmaar… An entertaining evening at the Victorie. Sheila E was up for it and the party quickly commenced. However, Prince’s loss is felt in a huge way!

Raphael Saadiq

3½/5: Raphael Saadiq at Paradiso: a nice evening with a superb band and too much talking.

New Order

4½/5: New Order at last! Your Silent Face, Subculture, Bizarre Love Triangle, Plastic and a truly magnificent Tempation made for an unforgettable evening.

North Sea Jazz Festival

4/5: Day 3 of the greatest festival in The Netherlands: North Sea Jazz. The day of Jungle By Night, Poppy Ajudha, and Robbert Glasper (incl. Ledisi).

North Sea Jazz Festival

4/5: Day 2 of the greatest festival in The Netherlands: North Sea Jazz. The day of My Baby, Mammal Hands, Macy Gray and Masego.
