On the road again

Just in case you hadn’t heard the news, Stream of Passion ft. Ayreon <---(check out the spiffy new website!) will be hitting the road again in early 2007. Hope to be able to see you all (again :-) ) then!

The following dates/venues are confirmed:

18 Jan, The Rock / Copenhagen (DK)

19 Jan, Nosturi / Helsinki (FI)

21 Jan, Biebob / Turnhout (BE)

25 Jan, Lucky & Co. / Rijssen (NL)

26 Jan, Bibelot / Dordrecht (NL)

02 Feb, The Dome / London (UK) Moved to 04 Feb

03 Feb, (Venue TBA) / Rotherham or Sheffield (UK)

04 Feb, The Boston Music Room / London (UK)

Update: Cool - we’re going to Finland! :-) There are (STILL) a couple more gigs in the works; I’ll post more news as soon as I have it.

Update 2: Apparently there is some confusion about the Feb 3 UK city/venue. Last I heard, there was a chance it would be moved to Sheffield, but it still wasn’t 100% certain.

Update 3: Thank goodness I have YOU ALL to let me know when the gigs are ;-) Jan 25, Rijssen!

Update 4: CRS have organized a gig for us in London on 4 Feb. :-)

If you plan to come see us play AND if you plan to bring expensive electronic equipment with you, stay away from the “destruct-o-matic zone” on stage left… ;-)

Not to be a xenophobe, but alas, the US seems to be left off the list. I am extremely happy though to see that the band is still going strong. One day, when I’m rich, I guess I’m going to have to underwrite a tour of the US. Will the entire band be able to fit in my guest room?

To keep you even more updated, Yvette replied with the following concerning the Hardenberg gig:

“Well, that is unknown to me, and a bit strange as the band is in England the next day. So don’t write it in your calenders yet.

On a brighter note: we are looking into getting a gig up north somewhere. So fingers crossed.”

Hi All

“Jen (Wabe)” The link didn’t work, something is wrong with site. Is it definitely in Sheffield? This is getting confusing, ahh my head, 8-).

Lori can you Help with where and what dates your playing in England?

“where can you buy inflatable banana’s.”

I bought the first batch in a joke shop next door to where I work, and the second batch on ebay. I was buying loads so it worked out better to get them on ebay, because they came in 10’s. You could probably find single ones there too though. Don’t forget to draw a face on it ;)

I have just send an email to “poppodium Hardenberg, Netherlands” and asked about the show of Stream of Passion on February 2 next year.
The answer was: “no show, unfortunattely and also no new date.”
So now we have to travel a few kilometres more to Dordrecht or Turnhout.

Yeah the Hardenberg one was strange… I spotted.. posted it around on the ayreon and sop forums too.. and Yvette, Arjen’s manager saw that and jumped on it saying ‘heeey that’s not right’ so yeah still waiting if there will be a gig somewhat more to the east.

And if not.. SoP-fans on tour.. coz I sure as hell will have to see them again

“Stream of Passion return to the CRS on Saturday 3rd February 2007. Due to Rotherham venues being booked up we are taking the gig to The Boardwalk, Sheffield. Tickets are £15 (£13 CRS members advance) and will be available next week.”

I had my mate quote it on

It amazes me how you guys find out about these gigs before *I* do…Yvette is fast, but you guys somehow are FASTER! ;-) I have good memories from Rijssen, so it will be fun to play there again.

Rob, that’s a really sweet offer. I’ve got a lot to prepare between sound check and showtime, so I doubt there’s much time for socializing. But if there’s plenty of time I’ll be sure to let you know :-) But I think the other loyal PLAG-gers should come with me, because if I go by myself, people might think we’re lovers… ;-)

+ Comment by Rob
2006-12-18 22:52:39

We, lovers? Just good friends doesn’t have to be lovers directly… Well, you can take some other Soppies (Davy, Marcela?) with you — no problem…

2006-12-19 00:50:59

About finding out about gigs… the Hardenberg date was accidental.. they had only ‘published’ it within the venue on the night that I was there to see the Gathering.

As for the Rijssen date, Lucky had it online before Yvette had it out. And well as a photographer (and pretty much internet active person) relatively close to Lucky I use the messaging service of Lucky to keep me updated of gigs planned there. Kinda like an rss feed but then for email.

That’s how Im faster than Yvette.. pure coincidentally + internet active personality.

The venue in Rijssen is pretty big… (it has actually plans to grow even further in the future).
Davy told me some time ago, he had some doubts about the tickets for Lucky&Co. He wouldn’t like to play in an empty venue, hehe…
So I promised to buy a ticket (I did), and ask as many others to come too (I did too — probably my cousine and uncle, and classmate and his brother will come).
Though I guess it won’t sell out before January 25th.

Come folks, come!

2006-12-29 00:46:00

Two more tickets will be sold probably next week to me and my roommate, didn’t get them yet. I don’t know if it will sell out, but it sure will be full enough! Like last year with the DVD recording I hope… I’m dragging everyone along I can think of ;) And I don’t mind if it doesn’t sell out, leaves more time for us with you SoPies ;)
