Oh and one last thing.

WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THE FUCKING MOSH-PITTERS?

God. I'm so ashamed of being danish sometimes. Is the crowd like this in other countries too? Fuck. I was standing 2nd/3rd row from the front until goliath where I had to move back because some fat ass douche bag with a crew cut went tornado in the crowd. What the fuck is wrong with actually dancing and jumping around without bashing people's faces into their skulls? So I went back just behind the mosh pit and stood there and danced. I guess Cedric liked my approach as he seemed to always take place with his mic right in front of me and look straight down at me - he did that quite a lot throughout the concert.

Oh well :)


That's what happens at a good rock concert. I saw Tool (on mushrooms) in Luxembourg (near Amsterdam) and I know it was just the mushrooms, but I felt like I had somehow separated myself from the crowd by leaning backwards and observing... this being Luxembourg, there were about 50 giant skinheads meat-plowing each other center-stage and I was chillin' by the bassist, who really is the key to that band. I kept feeling the eye contact and the lights on the crowd and when a tall dude with epic blond hair got in my way, Maynard started doing a weird snake-charmer type dance, I believed to be luring me out from behind the shadowy individual.

Ok but I was tripping, alright?

^^^hahaha that's great! what made that dude's blond hair so epic?? I remember tripping at Tool and ignoring all the crazy Alex Grey artwork and just fixating on the back of some guy's head hahahahaha

and don't be ashamed of being Danish other guy! Crowds blow worldwide.

Anyway, back to the topic, sorry to cut in when I'm definitely not in Denmark and have nothing to add

Exactly. We have quite a few on this forum that I would ban without even second guessing. Someone give me mod powers....

I'm sure it's pretty typical everywhere. It was like that when I saw them at the Roseland in NYC. The moshers were awful. Every time I got into the show they slammed into me and I'd go flying several feet - ridiculous. What happened to moshing etiquette? They were literally using the 'non-moshers' as their barrier. I ended up punching, elbowing etc. but they didn't care. I tried to move several times but it didn't matter. All I wanted to do was dance... I mean seriously, who moshes to The Widow?! It was my first time seeing TMV so it was still amazing but it would have been better if they weren't there.

Nothing exclusive for Danish audiences. In Oslo there were mosh-tendencies as well. When the final song Roulette Dares started, a few guys upfront decided to go bananas (which I sorta understand, because the fast parts of Roulette are "mosh material"). But fortunately a couple of security guards stepped into the audience to get 'em to stop that shit, probably threatening to throw 'em out :biggrin: And they did.

I'm stunned that I am the first to report this, but Ceddy went strongly out of tune in the first song. I was actually a little bit embarrassed. Thank God, he became better, but that was painful for a moment. And I felt Dave and Marcel was a bit out of sync with each other at a couple moments. The setlist was awesome. Really, really good.

The crowd sucked, though. When the music calmed down for a minute, as it often does with TMV, everybody felt the need to strike up a conversation. What the hell? The quiet bits are fuckin' fantastic! DON'T TALK OVER OMEY'S GENTLE RIFFS!

And lastly, some asses in the crowd started clapping along with the tune. When did a TMV concert turn into the fuckin' Idols finale? And Ceddy was obviously annoyed at the end when he left the stage. If it wouldn't have been for some people, I'm sure he would have continued for a song more...

Anyway, not the best concert ever (the best being the three hour gig in Hamburg 2008), but still highly enjoyable. I just love watching Omar and Marcel. Their energy is so muted, but still very present. And they are both pretty damn hot.

to be fair I don't think it's hard to get cedric annoyed. i don't think there's anything explicitly wrong with clapping to a certain segment of a song live or whatever.

Here's the Setlist (managed to get one out of the three, which were handed out after the concert)...

Furthermore:

Cedric didn't say anything throughout the entire concert, and only waved! goodbye after Roulette.
He did dance a lot! (not as much as back in the days, but I was still impressed)
Omar did smile occasionally, allthough he seemed kind of frustrated towards te end (don't know why)
The vocal-improv's were few, but brilliant. Cedric really seemed to know how he could make it fit with the music...

You lucky Euros, you always get the sweet concerts. I'm anxious about how Dave sounds, the big test will be Tetra. Everytime I hear Tetra live, it sounds nothing like the album and throws me off, but I only heard Thomas play it and the intro especially was, I dunno, just not as badass as Theodore's opening to that song. If a genie could grant me a Volta wish, it would be for the concert to begin with Vicarious, then go into Tetra. While I'm on this wish, how about Jon gets to play it too

Yeah cedric wasn't so good the first song, but he got damn good during the show. As you said yourself, the quiet jams were fucking fantastic, and that's where Cedric really shined in my opinion. Do you remember his voice impro during the cicatriz jam? the "round and round and round and round" part? That was fucking good.

I love those jams. And yes fuck the people talking. I was right by the mosh pit, and it was pretty obvious that the mosh-pitters were also the talkers during the slow parts. I actually shushed at them at one point :)

During the Cicatriz jam Cedric quoted the Frank Zappa song "Magic Fingers", singing the lines:
"Open up your pocketbook,
get another quarter out,
drop it in the meter, mama
and try me on for size"
