what is the best way to order a ticket for this concert, tickemaster.nl?
Do they offer to select a seat in terms it is seated?

i always order via ticketmaster, i think it is indeed the best way.
i checked it, but there's no info on seated or no seated places, cause sales start Saturday April 19th, 10am.

For those that have been to "de Oosterpoort" before, is it a good venue; I mean, small or large hall (I much prefer smaller intimate venues), and what crowd capacity can it hold in terms of actual people ???

Any news yet if this will be a fully seated gig yet or not ???

Thanks.

The stage is very low.
At the Intimate Evening Tour it was seated, but no numbered seats or reserved seats.

Probably we know more on saturday when the tickets are available.

maybe you can get an impression by the pics on this website:

I like to go to Groningen and want to buy my ticket on Saturday. Do you need a credit card to use ticketmaster.nl?

If that so, I will go saturday to the postoffice or recordshop. Eindhoven is still available, so I guess I don't have to wait Saturday in a sleeping bag till the sale starts for Groningen.

There are plenty of options to pay at ticketmaster.nl. I should work without credit card.

I doubt the concert will be sold out in one day ... well who knows

One was me I tried right at 10am and then I got the message that I should try later, as the number of concurrent user had reached the limit. 5 minutes later luckily it worked.

I finally decided to take the NH Groningen Hotel. It is 104 Euro and has free parking space. The Hotel opposite it the venue is cheaper in the firat point of view, Adding the adittional money for a car, well ther is limited space, and the money for the breakfast and well that is one star less to the other hotel and no free WLAN access lets me finally decide to the hotel a slightly further away. Still in walking distance so.

Support act will be "Larkspur Falls". Also in Paradiso in Amsterdam and, I guess, also in Eindhoven
http://www.myspace.com/larkspurfalls

Never heard of her, but sounds interesting.

Thanks Arne, we had!

Tonight was the first show with Larkspur Falls as support act. She started at 20:30 for about 25 minutes, playing sometimes acoustic and somtimes electric guitar.
The venue was nearly sold old, well probably it was as it looked quite full.
Suprisingly the stage was double in height than on the Intimate Evening Tour. The setlist was quite similar to the Cologne gig, just one acoustic song was different.

Hi and thanks for the pics!
From the pictues I see you are using a Fuji Finepix J10. I recommend to not use the flashlight and instead setting ISO parameter to 800 ot 1600. Should be possible with this digicam.

Thanks for the tips! Actually it was just a borrowed camera so I didn't really have time to master it.
