The boys put in a spellbinding show to a packed Carling Academy in Liverpool last Saturday night. Proving once again that Amsterdam are as good a live band as we have in the UK and the reason why so many people travel so many miles to support our heroes.
After coming onstage to a huge cheer with Paulie taking over on ‘intro’ duties the boys then raced through Amsterdam classic after classic and threw in a couple of surprises as well. The Amsterdam choir was in full voice and with Ian not having to sing hardly any of Love Phenomenon and the new version of one of Ian’s older songs Fair Blows the Wind for France shamed the original.
The setlist was:
Can’t trust the people
Fair Blows the Wind for France
Feels like Growing up
Raid the Palace
Taking on the World
You’re a Phoney
Does This Train Stop on Merseyside?
Fat Black Heart (solo)
Town Called Malice
The boys will perform a final warm up for the biggest tour in Amsterdam history at Ian and The Engine Room’s local pub The Red Lion in Little Sutton on Friday 24 February. Tickets can be reserved by calling 0151 339 2496.
A unique chance to catch the boys just yards from their own homes and a very rare Little Sutton showing!
