I had a hypothetical agreement with my girlfriend that we could name someone famous that we could sleep with no questions asked. Stray For A Day we called it.

She picked Brad Pitt, I picked Simone Simons. Now she is not happy that Epica is coming to Nottingham.

You know there's only one way to become the guy on the right: pair your girlfriend off with Oliver Palotai.

She has already said that I can't grow a goatee, so I don't think she will go for that one.

Anyway, first rule of metal, you should never let your girlfriend go off with the keyboard player, only the drummer.

Who cares who your soon-to-be-ex-girlfriend is gonna get together with, if your soon-to-be-girlfriend is Simone Simons?

That has to have been one of the best concerts I have been to in years.

ReVamp were excellent. I didn't really like the album, but hearing it live made a massive difference. Floor was note perfect as usual and the crowd, some who probably hadn't heard of After Forever, were left open mouthed at how a support act could put on a hour of such high quality metal. After seeing that you wondered how Epica could follow such a performance. It must have been a risk to put on a support that could overshadow the headliners.

No need to worry though as Epica were easily as good as ReVamp. Simone's live performances have improved, she has real power in her voice now. Of course she was absolutely gorgeous as well. The atmosphere created with the smoke and lasers added to the mood, the band were upbeat, playing brilliantly, a great setlist. A perfect night. As close to metal porn as you could get. When Floor came back out to join Epica during the encore the roof pretty much blew off.

I highly doubt that anyone in an Epica crowd hasn't herad of After Forever, especially due to Mark Jansen

A lot of the people I talked to between the two bands had never heard of them. Most of the old duffers like myself had though.

Weird.

I don't see that happening here. But then again both are of course Dutch bands.

I've lent some CDs to someone I know who went to the concert to educate him.
