I was there last time when they played in 013 (November 2011). Ever since I suspected it would be the last time for them to play in Tilburg. And it seems I was right, as they've now become too popular for a venue such as 013. Obviously I won't go all the way to Amsterdam to see them, so I most certainly won't go to that gig. The positive thing is that their glory days are far gone anyway, plus I've seen them multiple times already, so I can't say I care a whole lot about this.
