Response

Aan het begin van de show vond ik de performance een tikje sloom en had ik de indruk dat Ben Folds niet in topvorm was. Naar het einde toe beterde dit wel en kwam er ook energie in het publiek zelf, wat bij het begin niet echt het geval was. Dus uiteindelijk was het toch nog een goede show. Maar persoonlijk had ik hem liever met een backing band (of de Five) gezien... Misschien lagen mijn verwachtingen te hoog na jarenlang van zijn muziek te houden maar hem nooit live bezig te zien. In elk geval zou het super zijn als hij snel nog eens naar deze contreien terugkeert.

Eén van de allerfantasmagorischtastische concerten al ooit in mijn 51 levensjaren gezien! En dat allemaal met 1 piano en 1 verrukkelijk Toffe Peer! The Guy Next Door die je elke week uitnodigt om wat te zeveren en te zingen en en passant de Wereld Beter te maken!
