This is my first time attending a solo Steven Wilson
gig. This is simply because I wasn't that deep into prog when Insurgentes came out in 2008. After seeing Porcupine Tree
in Amsterdam I knew to expect nothing but a spectacular show from this brilliant British song smith.
The gig was staged in the main hall in de Boerderij, as always the ambience was great. The average age of the attendees was somewhat lower than I'm used to at their prog gigs. People from all age groups were represented quite evenly however people in there twenties/thirties made up the most of the crowd.
Lasse Hoiles works yet again spiced the entire show with his artwork. While waiting for the show to start we were treated with projections on a large (semi transparent) canvas that hung right in front of the stage (between the stage and the crowd). These projection were accompanied by some intense and haunting noisy/droneish sound scape (composed by Steven Wilson as Bass Communion
