Who's going to Amsterdam next week?

Thought it would be a pretty good way to warm up for Wembley, are you going over for it, if so have you been to the Paradiso before???

I'll be at that show. Have a friend in Holland who always visits the UK for Frank's shows with me, so thought it was my turn to do the same. Pretty excited about it, will be my first gig outside the UK. My friends have said that the Paradiso is a great venue, and should be a great warm-up for Wembley.

I'm also going but I'm from Germany so its pretty close for me. And YES the Paradiso is a great venue! It even is one of my favorite concert locations. It is an old church with balconies and a really great atmosphere.

I'll be there! First gig outside the UK for myself too, and the first time I'll have seen Frank since 2008. Can't wait to hear new POTD / EKMB songs live! Got my girlfriend to thank for the tickets - coolest birthday present ever?

I am with thanks to Watergirl & Skuzafan: "You hit the nail on the head, Skuzafan. When you're at a gig you just don't want it to end. In that way I think Frank and Bruce are quite comparable. Once the gig is over you find yourself thinking, "Can I go again tomorrow?" !

I thought she's right instead of just telling some friends about the Bournemouth gig - I should have gone myself because that's just what I felt after Hammersmith.

turns out my pre Wembley warm up began last Tuesday with Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo.

I'm not going but I love the Paradiso. Its so pretty. And Leidesplein is just down the road, perfect for pre-gig drinks.

Wow, that sounds so damn cool!!! What a great show that is going to be- can you imagine how much fun Glory Haleluah is going to be???

I am a Frank Turner fan because of our own watergirl! She posted a link to I Still Believe on a thread she started on a Bruce board back in August and here I sit months later, a crazed Frank fan blaring Try This At Home on my stereo chatting with Frank fans around the globe!

So, sing a little louder for those of us who wish we could be in Amsterdam and Wembley!!! Thanks! :wink:

For those who have never been to the Paradiso (or a gig in Amsterdam) before, last time I went we had to pay for a membership thing. They were available for a few euros as soon as you went in (you had to buy one if you didn't already have one). This was back in 2007 so I don't know if they still do that, but if they do, then it won't be such a surprise to you.

We are off to Amsterdam on Wednesday for this gig. Have only seen Frank live in support of Green Day before, so very excited about this.

Yes you still have to buy a membership, it is 4€ and you can buy it when you enter.

And yes Glory Hallelujah will be fun! hehe :D

Getting my flight to Amsterdam in a few hours for this show. Hope Birmingham airport doesn't decide to close and cancel my flights because there is the slightest bit of snow/rain. Looking forward to tomorrow's show a lot.

Just got back from Holland, had a great time there. Show was amazing. Was really nice meeting the lady from the forum outside before the show.
