La Nuit de l’Erdre.
Long time, no see. I haven’t been on in a while, but summer is finally upon us so I’ll have a bit more time to keep in touch! How is everyone? How has your summer been so far? Mine kicked off in the best of ways: with a Two Door gig!
Last saturday, on the 1st of July, I went to see Two Door for the 11th time at the festival La Nuit de l’Erdre near Nantes in France. What a day – it was such a wonderful way to start the summer. I went with my dad and brother, who hadn’t seen the band since 2013, and met up with some friends I hadn’t seen in years. My family couldn’t get over how much the band had changed, my friends had the time of their lives, and Two Door were fantastic, as always. They came on stage at 22:30, so everyone was pretty excited. Their live performance, the light show, the crowd… Everything was brilliant. The setlist was still very Tourist History/Beacon with only a few Gameshow songs, but I can understand why they would chose to play their better known songs at a festival. My highlights were Something Good Can Work and Lavender, though I must say they gave every song everything they had. I was also lucky to meet up with Ben after the show, which was lovely, as always. The festival itself was also very enjoyable, it was quite small which gave it a very friendly atmosphere, and there was plenty to do and see all afternoon. I’d definitely go back. Thanks again to everyone who made last saturday such a great day!
I don’t know when I’ll see the band again, which is always an odd feeling. When I saw them last february in Paris I knew I had this show coming up, whereas now… I’ll have to wait until they announce another european tour!
