REM in Antwerpen Sportpaleis

It sucked. While the evening itself was quite enjoyable, our experience
was kind of ruined by the seating. My inlaws had bought tickets for us;
we were to go with the four of us. Dinner was great [some chinese food
near the sportpaleis], but we were seated in the most horrible place
imaginable.


With no clear view on the podium, nor any of the speakers (which made
the sound horrible!), we could not even see the vidiwall R.E.M. had brought
with them. Although R.E.M. is not my kind of music [I only knew three songs
out of a set of 25 or so], it was remarkably well performed.


The one thing I will remember though, is the explanation they gave with
some of their newer songs, saying they wrote and performed them in
protest to their current [Bush] government.
