of the concert hall, this gig featured the worst sound I've ever
heard. The concert was originally to take place at Den Atelier,
a small venue, but for technical problems they had to go to another
concert hall. I was among the ones who believed that the organisers
moved the concert location to sell more tickets, but it seems that
I was wrong, as shows this communiqué from Den Atelier :
dEUS show in Luxembourg or
Worst Case Scenario that failed to be an Ideal Crash
had already played our venue den Atelier twice in the past, in 1996
and 1997 and we happen to know theguys quite well by now. It has
been a great honour nevertheless, when their agent phoned us up
in November 1998 and said : Hi guys, dEUS will
have a new album out by next spring and the band wants to play den
Atelier on one of the first opportunities. So, we said
ok as that is an expression which is universally understood and
got this date at the very beginning of the bands European
tour, on Thursday 15th April.
has become common sense that the postman always rings twice. And
that for sure happened on Monday, 12th April at 14.32 GMT+1. We
have been given precious information that for reasons beyond our
own control, the scheduled show could not actually happen in our
own venue as planned. This is definitely NOT the kind of news to
lower ones blood pressure. The initial impact of the laserguided
bombing was shortly followed by a terribly nervous gunfire-type
rush of outgoing phonecalls to various aunts and uncles to just
simply say hello and to get to know what other options we were left
with in regard with this show.
serious promoters, it is our policy to never cancel a show unless
the artiste does.
simply, we had to move, so we did.
to flexibility of the City of Luxembourg, we have been diverted
to the Hall Victor Hugo, aptly named after the rather miserable
soundsituation in there.
steps : get in touch with the band on tour, clear the situation,
the alternative band approves our alternative we play !
venue change caused cardiovascular victims among our staff, especially
Piisch (lights) and Petz Klein (sound). Fortunately,
they succeeded in gathering plenty of people to give them a hand
in building up the appropriate sound & light structures for
a venue this size.
21 played their role in the media-promotion of this show more than
efficiently and Belgians streamed in, after a mad drive from Brussels.
in case some may have been tempted by little arithmetics back at
home, the reason for us to move the show was clearly NOT to sell
more tickets. The supplementary production costs involved featured
no particular financial interest to us whatsoever, otherwise we
could already have switched venues with far more large-public-appealing
shows in the past, but never did !

it ?) and Tom Barman who confirmed that next time, it will
be at den Atelier again !"
