You ask, we run in Ziggo Dome Tuesday night. There brought the British eredivisierockband Editors the brand new, very strong and widely acclaimed album, the Violence to life. Exactly what the fan wanted after that great release earlier this month. Hear, see, feel!

A record for you to listen remains to be materially different than to attend a concert, was. Such as the cinema, the theatre and the stadium, also what extra’s offer above, you own bank. Editors by definition is a band that you particularly also in person to see and undergo. For sixteen years, and six slides long, even, which they have also one of the most consistent players of the generation 00 in the British indie-rock. That was again apparent Tuesday night in Ziggo Dome, stoneware and determines the atmosphere of the work off their well-stocked catalogue, but there was now not the attention.

The static roaring Hallelujah (so low) from the new album Violence was first brought in by Tom Smith. The happy Darkness at the door followed not much later and got the Amsterdam public as to the heupwiegen, or at least schokschouderen. That Editors – a band who are obviously never averse to the use of synthesizers – with her time, life is to be heard in the beaterige, dancerige title track of their new album. And it is gently danced as a ophitsend tijdgerekt is on beat and Smith the time eight his jacket to pull out.

This all takes place against a not over-the-top decor, with in particular a good light show spans and minimal use of fireworks. Far from the caliber of U2 all in terms of decor and technology, but with the video screens there is enough for Ziggo Dome and especially for the somewhere still modest band itself.

After a substantial block of older work (including the timeless classics Munich and An end has a start, but also the fun In this light and on this evening, follow behind each other in Nothingness and Belong. The first from small to large, again on the beat. The second starts with an acoustic guitar, but grows and flourishes gradually.

The strongest of their latest repertoire, the British have for the lock is preserved. Ballad No sound but the wind brings frontman Tom Smith’s impressive solo on the guitar. The exuberant, grotesque Cold follows. Also such a number that both a clear, new flavor carry, as the old grand Editorssaus. And then they also have the already creaking discotrack Magazine, which is after all so much good news all would almost forget. Their biggest hit ever, Papillon in the corollary is then just the icing on an already memorable and delicious cake.
