Glorious closer to an abundant year for Belgium’s best band
AB CURATED BY
AB turns 40 in September and we’re celebrating in style while the entire booking team takes a temporary break. Come again? Well, throughout the celebratory season, AB is handing the keys to the programming office over to a range of national and international curators with long-term associations with the venue.
What. A. Top year. For. Whispering Sons. Fuck! Their debut ‘Image’ was a musical upper-cut whereby the outright fantastic reviews – one rightly reading: ‘A Lynchian Nightmare’ – could be piled high. The release show in the AB Club was sold-out in advance and pretty much all the shows that followed were almost always a full house. They played at the Raf Simons défilé in Paris and Naomi Campbell came to congratulate them… What’s more, they were nominated for three MIA's this year and, to top it all off, they appeared at Best Kept Secret and on the main stage of Rock Werchter.
What better way to end the year in style than with a glorious show on the Main Stage of AB? Even better, they’ve quite a collection of surprises up their sleeve too: the band makes a big bash of it, as they invite a handful of their favourite (inter)national acts. That programme will be made known at a later date.
Dit concert kadert in het Autumn Falls Festival.
Kurt Overbergh: ‘Never listen to Kurt Overbergh when it comes to Whispering Sons, as he’s a blindly devoted fan for life.’
