So I just found out that Gregg is playing in Amsterdam next week, just when I'm going to be there: D
Just bought my ticket, anyone else attending? Pretty hyped to see him in such an legendary venue.

Yep, i'm going! Unfortunally Jaimoe's Jazz Band is no longer the support act for this "only club show in Europe" gig. Would have been cool if he would had played because it's very likely that he would have sat in during Gregg's set. Unclear if there's another support act so i advice you to be at the Paradiso early.

Nice to know I won't be the only one from this place at the Paradiso.
Do you have any idea how's it gonna be in terms of attendance? Can Gregg fill the place?

It's GA right? How early should one get there in order to get front row?

Also if you're up for a drink before or after the show let me know!

So far not sold out. It's indeed General Admission. Most people stand on the main floor. The floor is a bit higher along the sides and at the bar area. Good viewing from there. There are also 2 levels of balconies (open if enough tickets are sold). Usually when the Paradiso is declared "sold out" it's not "filled to the rafters". Still unclear if there is a replacement support act for Jaimoe. The venue stated that doors open at 19:00 hours and Gregg's show-start is scheduled at 20:30 hours. So in case there's a support act i guess they will be playing from approx 19:20 till 20:00 hours. But that's the schedule so wouldn't be surprised if the main show starts with a little delay. So in case you want to be front row i would suggest to be there before 19:00 hours and join the line in front of the Paradiso. Entrance procedure: except for the concert ticket you also need a membership for the Paradiso. Ticket bastard offers customers to buy that membership (2 or 3 euro's) in advance along with their concert ticket. So some people get in quicker because they can immediately let scan both their concert ticket and membership while others have to first buy that membership at the venue ticket booth. That membership is not a scam. Both the Paradiso and the nearby Melkweg (Milkyway) venue have this "construction" for ages. I think it's for tax reasons.

Hello Collin,

Did you come across that picture on the WWW or are you by any chance in Amsterdam?

Looking forward to tomorrow. Most likely the last time i gonna see him live on stage since his European appearances are few and far between. The last time i saw him in Europe Derek and Susan were guests on stage so it's a pitty Jaimoe won't be there tomorrow since his support act has been cancelled a few weeks ago.

Great show last night, Gregg dedicated not my cross to bear to Mama A, full review and some pics coming as soon as I make it back across the pond.
Gregg sounds and looks way better than he has in the past 5 years.
