>Thank you for the review and setlist, Eugene. (What's the

>I am sorry to see you're so disappointed.
>Nick does not usually talk a lot during shows, but normally he

>a good performer - he has enough routine by now.
>Apparently this didn't work last Saturday. A reaction of somebody
>in the guestbook on my page does not sound very enthusiastic
>either: "He said to the auditorium
> "Fuck you", I don't know why.
> He threw all flowers on the floor.
> The sound was bad."
>If the sound in a particular venue is bad, it can really spoil their
>mood. But I also think the band needs new songs to be in their
>best form. Maybe this tour is too much routine for them. I'll see
>on Wednesday...
