Antwerp, Belgium 19 October, 2011
A very lazy first part of the day spent with a pot of coffee, newspaper and guitar followed by a late check out of the Amigo Hotel. We drove to Antwerp arriving at Sportpaleis just in time for a quick dinner, soundcheck, change clothes and play our portion of the show. Another full house of nearly 12,000 fans who gave us a standing ovation at the end of our set. Especially fine versions tonight of Sailing, Brothers, Privateering and more.
We finished, got out of our stage clothes and hit the buses just as Bob's portion of the show had begun. It was a 90 minute drive to Rotterdam, Holland where we'll spend the night and play tomorrow.
Music alert! Guy played me four sides of a new band he's found and we love them, Cats Eyes is the name of the group. We don't know much about them and will investigate further. Meantime, I can't hear enough of them.
