Den Bosch was a great concert...

01 - Vanishing Point
02 - Submarine
03 - Panorama
04 - Everywhere
05 - Reverie
06 - Sunrise
07 - Light Song
08 - Feathers
09 - Worlds
10 - Wires
11 - High And Low
12 - Here Comes The Snow
-------------------------------
13 - Jewel
14 - Fragile
15 - Driving In The Sun
16 - September

between Driving In The Sun and September, Lillies was on the set-list, but due to technical problems it was skipped, and Cranes went straight on to play a non-digital version of September (great stuff)

afterwards i had a little chat with Ali. i had so many questions in mind, but forgot all of them....i really felt like a little shit, a 44 year old man not knowing what to say...grrr. it probably just was the presence of Ali, she just the sweetest thing!

but all in all, a fabulous evening. it started out with a great support: Tom Musca, a dutch singer with a beautiful voice and subtle guitar playing, bringing us his lovely songs with very sharp lyrics (bought his cd afterwards, and it hasn't left my cd-player since then).
Ali & co were in a good mood, as always... together with their new drummer they enchanted an audience of old (my age kind of), and a lot of younger people. it's good to see that so many young-ones are caught in the Cranes web.
as i wrote above there were some problems with the digital background noises, so in the end they played a non-digital, only live instruments version of September, probably the best part of the show...
like i wrote... a fabulous evening...if Cranes are near you in the distant future, go and see them, and take all your friends with you.....

support CRANES

i have been at the berlin show last friday. i wrote a few sentences about it (in german) at last.fm and in my blog and i uploaded two cut-ups containing 6 songs from the lovely set: worlds, jewel, sunrise, feathers, lilies, here comes the snow.
it's at my blog: http://kotzboy.com/?p=3491

it was a very good show. amazing to see them live for the first time ever after listening to their music since... i guess ... about 13-15 years now already. i was a teenager (about 16/17) when i was introduced to the magic of the cranes by a lovely female friend who was even a bit younger (15). it never lets you forget it, if you listen to this magic music during your magic teenagerism and with a friendly introduction by someone you love. i have been following the music since then.

thank you for the magic, cranes.

love,
feathers

Thanks for sharing your experiences and memories.

I like Lilies a lot but I would happily trade it for an acoustic version of September!

Just found the audio of 2009-05-30 Leipzig (Germany), Kuppelhalle "18. Wave-Gotik-Treffen"

01 - Vanishing Point
02 - Submarine
03 - Panorama
04 - Everywhere
05 - Sunrise (false start)
06 - Loved
07 - Sunrise
08 - Feathers
09 - Worlds
10 - Wires
11 - Here Comes The Snow
12 - Light Song
13 - Jewel
14 - Lilies

Notes from the taper;
This show unfortunately suffered from various sound problems, feedback and bad mix (Alison's voice was way too low during the first few songs) - but in the end I have enjoyed it very much

(various sound probs from the venue, not the tapers equipment)
