(Everyone Deserves Music - 2003)
Almost two years of waiting for a new record or tour I started to read the
messageboard more intensive. And I can't believe it: New record, EU-Promo tour
also in Berlin and I passed this. I was looking the tourdates, no show in
Germany, only GB, France, Belgium and Holland. There was only one wish:
"Yes I will". So I got a good idea. I have friends around Amsterdam,
so lets make a long weekend trip to Holland. I ordered the ticket via
Internet, three days later I got it by letter, everything would be okay.
Some days later I read at the messageboard that the paradiso gig is already sold out.
Wow, I didn't know that the Netherlands are so crazy to see Spearhead.
On 26th May I bought the new record EDM, first impression - not that good like
"Stay Human" - but the next times of listening the record
I know that it is one of the best, not comparable with the others.
I had the ticket and I had the new record. So I was ready for Holland.
I started the trip on Friday after work and I was in Hilversum at 7 pm.
Having two wonderful days with my friends and their 8 month old
baby, I left them on Sunday and I had a wonderful sunny afternoon :-) at the Leidseplein
- Amsterdam, listen to EDM at my CD-Player, sitting outside a streetcafe,
walking around and looking for Paradiso location and feeling "Love invincable",
"well well well - moving on". At 8 pm I left Amsterdam and travelled to Haarlem to
my other friends having two children same age as my children. Later on we were
sitting in their living room, talking about the time in Berlin and were listening
to the Spearhead-CDs I took with me. They were enthustiastic about the music and felt
sad about not going to the concert. On Monday morning we were walking on the beach.
I left Haarlem at 4 pm and was waiting for the begin of the concert near Paradiso in a cafe.
It was 5:30 when I saw a couple walking across the place very fast, and I recognized
that it was Johan from PTTP-Suite (the old version with personal-pictures) with his girlfriend.
I talked with him before the entrance and the place became full of people.
