Groningen / venue Oosterpoort / September 25, 2011 concert Todd Rundgren and Metropole Orchestra
Review by Rens Korevaar (Switch to
And yes we drove to Groningen, in the north of The Netherlands. Todd's second show with the orchestra was at 15 pm. The Oosterpoort venue is a kind of sixties building. Just good for this sort of show. Even a lot of people in the audience were -- in Dutch -- 'ouwere-jongere' (a frase for older persons in there 50's and 60's who still look like and behave as they were younger). Compared to the former church of Paradiso in Amsterdam, in this venue we could chose where to sit down. The acoustic quality was brilliant, Todd's voice was in a better shape and the orchestra was again without any mistake.
The sound was excellent and a lot of instruments came in. It was like I was in a kind of storytelling by Todd. I had tears in my eyes during The smell of money, If I had to be alone and Wailing wall.
Together the two shows are a great gain in Todd's live musical box. Where does it end? And, does it end?
So this September 24th and 25th made it a beautiful weekend and a nice summer's end at 20 degrees celcius. Let the music fly.
Todd, thanks again for being a genius and amasing (as Co de Kloet said). Enjoy your and our future!!
