Just returned home after a great evening out. It was just wonderful. What a colour, what a music, what a show!!! It was fantastic.
A nearly 3 hour non stop show! We had perfect seats opposite the platform, so we could see really well, overlooking the crowd standing in the middle of the hall. Normally it is a football stadion so the distance was far and Paul was a little doll. There were screens on both sides of the platform showing him, the orchestra and all his guests from close by.
The colour was red and Marco Borsato came to sing this song and while singing it a big wave pulled through the whole crowd. It was wonderful to be part of it all.
Besides Marco Borsato, Paul de Leeuw invited many other famous Dutch popstars. What touched me most were the memories of those people that are no longer among us.
And then the songs Paul sang alone or together with other popstars. Wow just lovely. What a man, what a voice and what a sympathetic person. He even came close to our side saying that he wanted to be close to all those people that got a free ticket because of Dubbel Friss. So he and his pianist sang two songs close to where we were sitting. Loads of candles on the piano and beautiful songs!! What a popstar! and what lovely songs he sings. Really touching at times.
In the end it seemed as if he couldn't stop for he kept singing even more songs and it looked as if this hadn't been practiced at all. All those 32.000 people sang along with most of the songs he sang. He made the evening and he did it really well. It was just perfect!
