They would look great in The Two Tone Museum - and what a tribute to The Specials Tour. Really good looking posters Steve Cool
I wonder If the Dutch Forum Members could sign them - like an American Year Book? I bet a lot of Fans will want to buy one.

Well I have now brought a ticket for this gig and I am thinking of doing a on the road pre gig with as many of the usual suspects I can persuade to come with me.

I have one of the DJ's interested and I'll be trying to convince Nanks its a good idea tp come to Amsterdam.

That leaves me with just two things to solve

A bar with a room to accomodate us and some equipment to make the noise.

I am not going to be able to persuade anyone to bring their equipment with them (other than the CD's)

Any of our Dutch friends want to help with a bar and equipment?

I used to stay in 'The Greenhouse Effect' which has a late bar downstairs and their quality 'coffee shop' next door, situated right in the heart of the city Wink
It used to be very relaxed with good prices and a continental breakfast served until 12pm Cool

There's a few of us staying in some modern looking place, which is a couple of miles north of the actual city centre. It was both one of the cheapest and most favourably reviewed on Laterooms.

I was actually a bit surprised at the cost of hotels there. I'm way past dormitory type places or dirt-boxes now (and Amsterdam is full of them). I dunno how much I was expecting it to cost, but probably not as much as a lot of them seemed to be. Shocked

& we've still not booked travel of any kind - and it's not that long now (hint hint). Smile

The train/boat/train to skamsterdam will be no problem Wink

This is a good place to drink a few pints before the gig.



On the Leidseplein in Amsterdam and only 200 meter away from the Paradiso club.
Always a meeting point for Skapeople and Skinheads if there's good bands playing in The Melkweg or Paradiso.

But maybe there's gonna be pre and after party in The Maloe Melo club on the Lijnbaansgracht with some good D.J's. Time will tell Wink



See you all there Cool Laughing


Both of Those Places look good, A Pint of Guinness in Dan Murphy's what more could I ask for Very Happy my after party will be listening to the gig again on my CD Player Wink
