Magic Brussels

After London, Brussels was also a place where I wanted to deliver even more than elsewhere a real good show.
Half of the crew is from Belgium: the lighting designer, my friend Ignace d'Haese, his right hand man Glen Mollemans and all the EML team. The french promoter's team, and lots of other friends were around as well.
My friend, Jeroen Raveloot, one of the heads of Roland Central Europe was also there. We had dinner together at the catering before the concert. He brought me a black AX synth specially customised for me by Roland Japan. Apparently they are having a lot of requests for the AXsynth in black since Keyboard Mag US showed me on stage with the prototype that Patrick covered in black for lighting reasons. I am goimg to try the new one tonight in Koblenz then...

The Brussels concert has been magic. The sound was amazing, the light was unique. The all belgium team wanted to do their best in their capital and it worked.. I was really excited on stage and we all had a real good time: after four songs my shirt was totally wet and the whole venue was on fire.. I felt a real fusion with the audience. We are now in control of the show and I can be cool on stage and enjoying what is going on.
The last 30 mn. all the audience was standing, dancing and raving.. Great moments. The feedback after the show was excellent and very encouraging for the future..

Some updates for sounds, to make them more 21. century-ish, wouldn't be bad.

Simplement magique !!!

Il y avait longtemps que je rêvais de voir un de vos concerts et je ne suis pas revenue déçue que du contraire malgré le petit problème pour rendez-vous 2 mais au moins, c'est du direct...
Ayant un second mari compositeur qui adore la musique électronique, il aimerait faire découvrir à une oreille avertie sa musique et ses compositions.
Merci d'être génial surtout quand on voit l'énergie dépensée sur scène par tout le monde, vous et les musiciens qui vous accompagnent.

Vite le DVD et surtout un retour en Belgique qui me permettra peut-être de vous rencontrer mais surtout de venir avec mes 5 enfants.

Great show, no question about that! The music was magnificent (although maybe slightly too loud). Really loved the effect of the lasers and the smoke. Pity about the laserharp during RV2 but it worked during RV3, that was already impressive enough.

Personally I think that, when you get rid of the chairs and let people stand in front of the stage, people would have been "wild" the entire concert, not only during the last 30 minutes...

Looking forward to your next event...

Tout simplement excellent. Merci pour ces minutes de voyage où malheureusement le temps passe si vite !
Que s'est-il passé avec la harpe laser ? Est-ce le logiciel qui a fait des siennes ?

I caught the plane from Sofia in order to come... and I could say this was one of the best decisions I ever made! If only the audience were a little bit more enthusiastic... Nevertheless, great show, unbelievable lasers... Let's hope our government finally decides to build a decent music hall in Bulgaria so that next time it wouldn't have to be so difficult to enjoy the magic that is Jean Michel Jarre!
