Tourblog (3) - rehearsal day one

Today was the first day of the rehearsals in the theater. It started with setting up all the gear, and making sounds etc.
Actually yesterday I started setting up the monitoring part of the sound system with Alco, our sound technician. Today we finished that and when Wilco, Henk and Elisa came in, we set up all the instruments. The rest of the day we spend with getting the right sounds, and playing through the hardest parts of the set. The theater sounds great, and it is a great place to see a prog concert, if you ask me 😉
Wanna see where you can sit on Thursday?
Tomorrow Neal will arrive, so then we will start rehearsing with him somewhere in the afternoon.
Well a ton of things to take care of tonight, so I better hurry up, more to follow tomorrow.
