Spoiler:
 

Expatriate chose Dranouter Festival to open this summer tour in Europe !
I must admit this was the first time i've heard that name, when i discoverd it was less than an hour by car from where i live, haha shame on me uh !

So Expatriate was to play on the first day of that fesitval, and were the first band playing on the main stage !
I was affraid at first, cause i arrive in front of the stage something like one hour before the beginning of their set and there was no one. But little by little crowd began to fill the tent !
18.30 : Here the guys come :)

Well here again i'm soooo sorry, cause i really have a terrible memory and i can't keep a setlist in my mind (promise next time i'll have a pen and a paper sheet, i'll look crazy but i'll remember =P) so all i can say is that they played The spaces Between, Shooting Star, Aviation At night, Get out Give in, Killer cat, Blackbird, Are you Awake (last one as always, of course ;))... And other songs of course ... ha i'm sorry i'm so bad at this ! i'll try to find the setlist somewhere !

I think the gig was really brilliant, but i was just a bit disappointed by the crowd, who finally got into it but at the end (in my opinion) so i felt a bit alone when i was jumping around or trying to clap my hand with the drums x) lol but they were still really applaused at the end so no problem i think ;) and Ben was kinda talkative that day, had new glasses on, asked the crowd what we were thinking about them cool

I'll upload some pictures as soon as possible
but i got a new camera (mine fall into water) and i'm sooooo disapointed of it for gigs pictures :'(

Thanks Julie! Sounds like a nice little concert you've been to. grin
Do you remember any new songs? Or "Miracle mile"?
And what a shame with the camera! Did I get it right - you were taking pictures of the gig and then the camera fell into the water? Oh my...

Songbird : no its my old camera which fell into water =( and this one took good pictures live, but my new one ... =/ well i have a few but i'm really sad about it :(

Yes they began with Miracle Mile i think ! if my memory isn't triking me ... and i think there was a new song, maybe two.... aaaah i'm really sorry about being so bad with memory :( hope i'll be able to find the setlist somewhere !

Molkoqueen : i only watched Expat cause i had to go back home, family reason T_T i was so annoyed not being able to say :( cause there were Absynthe Minded and Gorky the same day... but well i've seen Expat so everything was more than fine =D

okay girls you've got it =P
so the gig was brilliant as i said, my cousin and i were at the first raw, between Ben and Damian. Damian was really sweet smiling to us.
And at the end of the show, i think (not sure but i think it's that !) Ben was given a bouquet of flowers (by the organisation of the festival, still supositions, but i think it's a common thing to do in belgium) when he left the stage. Then Damian, Dave and last Cristo left as well. The show was just over, thought i would not see them again, and Ben came back to give the flowers ! he tried to come down from the stage but couldn't so he gave it to the security guy who gave it to me, and he said thanks again with hand on his heart. It was so cute of him. They've all been so nice with me, that i still cannot believe it, still like a dream in my head.

Oh and i have a few picutres of the show =) (sorry again for the bad quality again disappointed )

waiting for the beginning of the show ;)

I love those pictures anyway, Julie, who cares about the quality - it's authentic! great
And how cool is the flower-story?! Lucky girl you are! And it just shows perfectly how great and nice the guys are. How are the flowers? Is there also a photo? wink
