The new songs sound promising, with a few that will become favourites of the fans. With the album scheduled for early fall, that is something to look out for. There was one main difference with the two festival shows I saw last week, the band could play for a whole evening so that meant many older songs which brought smiles on the faces of the people around me. From 'Blue Run' to 'Keep it Simple' and 'Gospel Plow' to 'Alabama Shamrock'. They were all there and built the party to a great height. A lot of dancing going on, happiness all around. The speed of some songs never cease to amaze me. Just looking at the hands and arms flying to keep up the rhythm gives me cramps in my forearms and wrist. "Do we do one more?" and up goes the rhythm again. Whoa!
Tomorrow the band flies back home, but with a renewed lease on popularity in the Netherlands. Next time with a new album of which I can already sing along with a few songs. That is pretty unique. Guys, thanks for the fun and see you later this year.
