Great show at the Sportpaleis Ahoy. The first of many legendary shows at this venue! The last 4 epic Lovetown gigs were here too, as well as ZooTV and the Mofo performance at the EMA's. There were some screw-ups, like at the beginning of Seconds, but overall it was great.


Very enjoyable, but with distortions in some songs.
Recording: "When We Were Young" - 4 stars


Fantastic, it wouldn't be a Dutch 80's show without the ole chants, would it?


I really enjoyed this bootleg, there's nothing like a good old 80's boot with a phenomenal audience.
Highlights: 11 O'Clock, Wire,with an extended outro, Surrender, and above all, TUF. They played the song slightly different and it was awesome! They still had to perfect Bad, and in this concert, it ended kind of early.
