Wow, Ed, that is great news! Thank you for posting it!

A concert in Tilburg or Belgium would be great! I hope it will happen (and that I will be able to go :D )

I will keep an eye on your site and this topic! :D

Love,

Yvonne

P.S. The link didn't work, but may be that is just my computer.

WOOHOO!!! A concert 4 days after my birthday - thank you Clannad for the early present! :mrgreen:

Getting to Amsterdam is easy enough - now all I've got to do is see if I can get the time off work!!!! :roll:

@Yvonne - Ed's link worked for me... Maybe give it another go? :?

Hi Yvonne,
the link seems to be working normal now. This morning the whole Melkweg website was down. Because of to many Clannad fans trying to get a ticket? :lol:

Not a certainty yet, G - I'm still only hoping/dreaming at this stage....

Look towards Chester on Tuesday/Wednesday next week. If you can't see a large blue cloud, you'll know I've got the time off!!!! :P :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hi,

The link works for me too now! Very exciting! I am hoping for a concert in Tilburg or Belgium because that is much closer to me!

I wonder whether they will bring the new album then or would that be too soon...? I wonder at what stage the new album is right now.... :) .

I hope you will be able to make it Dave! :D

Love,

Yvonne

:lol: I'll keep an eye out Dave. I know I won't be going - it's the same day as my graduation!

I feel I shouldn't say this, but I don't think we should hold our breath over the new album just yet, I seem to remember hearing that it was being worked on 2 years ago and more...

That said, the concerts we've seen recently are positives anyway :D

You are right, Grania, but I remember reading an article not so long ago in which Moya said that they were going to the studio in August. Or have I remembered that incorrectly? I don't remember which article it was, though. May be it is just wishful thinking :mrgreen: !

Love,

Yvonne

Hi Edwin,

Thanks for posting the news and yes, that was indeed the interview I meant.

I would love the go to Tilburg, but I am afraid that I will probably not be able to go. :cry:

Love,

Yvonne

I spoke too soon..... I can't get the time off to go to Amsterdam! :( :(

Might have a look at the Belgian gigs when more info is available, but we'll see.

Oh well, patience is a virtue, as they say! :wink:

Oh darnit, Amsterdam again.... It's not like it's hard to get to but rather getting back is a nightmare sometimes.

Haven't bought any tickets to any concerts sofar .... I do hope we still can get into the De Doelen venue in December!
