Delain Concerts
Notice: Undefined variable: result_groupe in /data/metal-ways_com/www/includes/bloc_concerts.php on line 43
Delain @ Atak (Enschede, NL) - 27.02.2010This concert wasn’t supposed to be special at all: small venue, normal setlist length, no guest, no Ronald... Hence the expectations weren’t high, and it’s probably why the show wasn’t jinxed from the start! Against all odds, it was amazingly good! Even if the audience was the typical Dutch audience (understand dull…), the atmosphere was festive and dynamic. The band members were totally into the show. And Charlotte was so happy that she even ate one confetti or two! :) On a more serious note, Charlotte is getting more and more pro and charismatic every day.
Delain Novemberrain @ De Broerenkerk (Zwolle, NL) - 31.10.2009Supposedly this was going to be a very special concert, turns out it wasn't really that different from normal gigs. Apart from guest appearances by Floor and Marco (who by the way had big microphone problems), there wasn't really anything special about it. The sound wasn't very good, music tended to be much louder then vocals up to the point where you would have to look at Charlotte to know she was actually singing.
The whole thing also had a kind of sad atmosphere to it, because this was after all Ronald's last gig.
Delain @ Elysée Montmartre (Paris, FR) - 08.10.2009Things were off to a bad start, beginning with the choice of the venue. Elysée Montmartre is just too big for Delain. Besides, promotion for the show was quasi inexistent. Hence, the venue wasn’t crowded and people who were there didn’t seem to know what they came for. The audience wasn’t won over from the start, and the band didn’t make a big effort to change that fact. The concert mechanically happened… song after song… but it was very deceiving. But Charlotte was there, she performed, even if she was very sick a few days before. The effort is worth mentioning!
Delain @ La Scène Bastille (Paris, FR) - 29.04.2009This concert was by far the best concert of Delain! The atmosphere was electric! The French audience is known for its enthusiasm and just proved that again. Each band member let itself get carried away by the warm welcome of the crowd. The atmosphere went crescendo during the whole show, and therefore when Charlotte announced that it was the last song, the crowd kept on screaming and singing “No! No! No!” without letting them play it. There was a lot of complicity exchanged. Technically speaking, the sound and the lights were perfect. 10/10!
Delain @ Zoe Club (Milano, IT) - 26.04.2009This was the first concert of the band in Italy. Fans were expecting them and they brought them a lot of tasty presents. But when the show started the atmosphere was not as good as expected. People were kind of dull which is weird coming from a Latin crowd. The performance wasn’t perfect: bad lights and sound. The setlist was disappointing as well since it featured rather slow songs combined in a soporific order. And while the new single April Rain was awaited for, it wasn’t played at all.
Delain @ Havana Cafe (Toulouse, FR) - 01.04.2009Tonight, Delain played as a support act for Kamelot. It was their first concert in France since the release of their new album April Rain. Even if the music style of Delain is not that close to Kamelot’s, the audience seemed to really appreciate the band. They gave them a warm welcome even if most of them didn’t know the songs. Ronald was very sick and barely standing on stage, but it seems that the crowd carried him throughout the show.
Delain - Interview @ Havana Café (Toulouse, FR) - 01.04.2009We met with Martijn just before Delain's 7th concert in France, this time supporting Kamelot. We talked a lot about the release of their second album April Rain. He answered some questions about the writing process and the structure of the songs. Martijn also explained to us that they were working on a tour in France as well as on a special show in the Netherlands.
Delain @ 013 (Tilburg, NL) - 20.03.2009Unfortunately, this show wasn’t better than the previous one. It was only shorter since Delain played as a support act for Kamelot. The setlist was once again disappointing. The songs Virtue And Vice and Control The Storm aren’t heavy enough. When only three “old” songs are played, Sleepwalkers Dream isn’t a good choice because it’s far less dynamic than A Day For Ghosts or Silhouette Of A Dancer for example... Again, the sound was quite bad. The audience didn’t seem to be into the show.
Delain Release Party @ Melkweg (Amsterdam, NL) - 19.03.2009This release party was quite disappointing. First of, one song of the new album wasn’t played: Start Swimming. It would have required an acoustic set and the band didn’t think it was a priority... The sound was bad. We could only really hear the drums. Therefore it was difficult to judge the quality of the new songs on a live level. The lights sucked big time: there only seemed to be a white one and it didn’t even light up the faces of the band members. Besides, the Dutch audience was once again sleeping. The highlights of the show were Go Away and Lost for those two songs were the only dynamic ones that night. Still, the band was really enthusiastic about that release, so let’s wait for more.
Delain @ Coqrock (De Haan, BE) - 12.07.2008Among the persons attending this free festival, only a few seemed to be there for Delain. As a consequence, the beginning of the concert was a bit disappointing. People weren’t into it. But, soon enough, the atmosphere started to warm up and it didn't stop until the end. The band and the crowd really connected, and everyone was jumping on The Gathering at the end.

Delain @ Trailerpop (Rotterdam, NL) - 12.07.2008Delain played at 5 PM, and it wasn’t very crowded in front of the stage. If it’s any consolation, the band that played after them didn’t get half of this audience. Therefore, the atmosphere wasn’t that good. Only a small part of the crowd was interacting with the band. The energetic combo of songs: Sever, A Day For Ghosts and Pristine came too late and, thus, didn’t get a chance to wake up the crowd.

Delain @ Bêkefeesten (Bathmen, NL) - 30.05.2008For starters, let’s say that Charlotte was just stunning. She was smiling a lot. She seemed relaxed and enjoying herself. After a series of concerts that didn’t go smoothly, this event was the perfect occasion to shine, and they did! No technical problem this time. All the band members were very happy to play. Let’s hope this night was the sign that luck has turned!

Delain @ Tivoli (Utrecht, NL) - 16.05.2008To be perfectly honest, this concert wasn’t so good. The sound was very bad set, and, because of a technical problem, Charlotte couldn’t hear herself and the show had to stop for a few minutes. As a consequence, the setlist was shortened, and both the band and the audience weren’t into the show. It was pretty chaotic. Let’s hope it won’t happen again.

Delain @ P60 (Amstelveen, NL) - 15.02.2008It’s always weird to attend a concert in the Netherlands after attending one in France. First, people are unusually polite, second: they are totally sleeping during the show. The band members seemed more rested than in Paris a month ago, except for Charlotte who gave us all a dreadful fright during SOAD. But well, as she perfectly put it: “The show must go on!”, and it did!
Delain @ La Boule Noire (Paris, FR) - 25.01.2008This show was Delain's first one as headliners in France, so the pressure was high. But everything worked out extremely well. The concert was sold out. The crowd was crazy, so crazy that Charlotte had to wait a lot between the songs to be able to cover the cheering screams. In a way, this concert was even more enjoyable than the one that the band did in the Zenith.
Delain - Interview @ La Boule Noire (Paris, FR) - 25.01.2008Just before a sold-out show in Paris, we interviewed Charlotte Wessels from Delain. We talked about their recent European tour as headliners. Charlotte gave us a lot of information concerning their upcoming album. To conclude, she drew a little portrait of each band member.
Delain Special PART 3 @ De Broerenkerk (Zwolle, NL) - 02.11.2007This third part of the show was a perfect conclusion! Charlotte looked much more relaxed, and all the band members seemed to enjoy themselves a lot. So did the crowd actually! One question though: why no Deep Frozen? Anyway! Thanks a lot to the guests, and congratulations to Delain: mission completed!
Delain Special PART 2 @ De Broerenkerk (Zwolle, NL) - 02.11.2007After 6 electric songs, among which the new song Stay Forever, the band members went back on stage, all dressed up, for the acoustic session. Charlotte wore a long white dress, and the guys classy costumes. It was the occasion to hear a second new song, untitled yet, as long as two covers: Cordel (The Cranberries) and How Can We Hang On To A Dream (Tim Hardin), both of them really well interpreted!
Delain Special PART 1 @ De Broerenkerk (Zwolle, NL) - 02.11.2007Finally! The awaited special show, in a very special venue: the Broerenkerk Church! Did this special evening with Delain exceed our expectations? Yes it did! The evening was divided in three parts: electric set / acoustic set (everyone suited up!) / electric set. Sharon den Adel, Liv Kristine, George Oosthoek and Guus Eikens were all happily present. A major moment!
Delain @ Metal Female Voices (Wieze, BE) - 20.10.2007This concert was certainly a good one, but compared to the one in Paris, it was clearly less powerful. The band members were motivated, but the crowd was not reactive enough. Anyway, it was our best Delain concert in Belgium! :)
Delain - Interview @ Zenith (Paris, FR) - 08.10.2007We interviewed Delain a first time earlier this year, before their first concert in France. Tonight, we met with Charlotte Wessels again, just before Delain’s 5th French gig. We talked about the band experiences with the French audience. We also mentioned Delain’s burning issues. And finally, we discussed the band’s future.
Delain @ Zenith (Paris, FR) - 08.10.2007Delain was the first band to play, and yet, it just looked like the whole audience came for them. The crowd was totally into it, screaming, singing, jumping on The Gathering! And I won’t even mention how crazy it got when, once again (thanks!) Sharon joined Charlotte on No Compliance. The band members seemed extremely happy, and it just felt right, because they deserve it!
Delain @ Raismes Fest (Raismes, FR) - 08.09.2007It was pleasant to meet Delain in France again. The crowd was clearly not the typical 'Delain fans' type. It wasn’t a done deal at all. And yet, they succeeded in touching the audience. The atmosphere got better and better as the concert went on. Now we just have to wait until October, 8th in Paris!

Delain @ V-Kick (Venray, NL) - 01.09.2007Unfortunately we missed the first four songs, but the rest of the show was good enough to make up for this! Even if the crowd didn’t seem "metal oriented", the atmosphere was quite energetic. The sound was ok, and the lights were good, which compensated the fact that there was too much smoke. And we eventually got the pleasure to hear The Gathering a second time as an extra song!

Delain @ Westerpop (Delft, NL) - 25.08.2007This was our first concert of Delain on a stage with a catwalk. So we were looking forward to seeing Charlotte walk on it. Unfortunately, the members of Delain seemed rather shy, and the catwalk remained empty most of the time. Besides, the sound was not so good and something was missing… maybe because the band was already excited and stressed out about their performance at the MTV awards the same night.

Delain @ Summer Darkness (Utrecht, NL) - 10.08.2007It was our first concert of Delain in a small venue, so we were hoping for a good atmosphere. Well, it was definitely better than usual, but Dutch people are still pretty calm… too calm actually. Sometimes you even wonder if they don’t miss the excitement of the event… Besides, the lights of the venue were awful, not enjoyable at all, neither for the eye, nor for the camera.

Delain @ Nirwana's Tuinfeest (Lierop, NL) - 04.08.2007The weather was good, the concert was good, what else? Hum, it was our first concert without Ray, which was sad, but Ronald was there, all focused on what he was doing, and the result sounded great! As always, all of them were nice and smiling a lot. The only negative point was the setlist: 3 songs were removed, due to a lack of time. One thing is sure: time flies during pleasurable moments.

Delain @ Elektra's Tuinfeest (Sliedrecht, NL) - 30.06.2007Our first concert of Delain in Holland! Unfortunately for the band, the organization of this free festival was very bad, and they had a very hard time making everything work. But they did, and the concert was very pleasant. The sound wasn't perfect, but the smile of Charlotte, and of course the good mood of the guys made us forget all about this.

Delain @ Le Bataclan (Paris, FR) - 21.05.2007This concert was great as usual, but unfortunately too short… BUT the surprise in it was damn huge! The last time we talked to him, Martijn had underlined the fact that the participation of Sharon on No Compliance wouldn’t happen soon since they couldn’t find the time to rehearse… Nobody could have guessed… And yet! Sharon came on stage, when we less expected her, and it was awesome!!! Thanks guys… and girls!!!
Delain @ Artefacts Festival Hall Rhénus (Strasbourg, FR) - 29.04.2007For this particular show, the Dutch ‘Die Hard’ fans of Delain had decided to make a surprise to the band. They had traveled a long way to come and see them in France, and of course they had kept it a secret. When she saw them, Charlotte was extremely touched, and it gave the show a whole new dimension! Everyone was pleased, both on stage and in the crowd. Dutch people you rule! Come back soon! :)

Delain - Interview @ Zenith (Lille, FR) - 28.04.2007Just before their first concert in France, we did an interview of Martijn and Charlotte from Delain. They answered our questions extremely nicely… We could have guessed since, well, Martijn is a Westerholt, and Charlotte is as cute and nice on stage than off stage!
You will learn that a new single will come for sure! :)
And to conclude, they recorded a little video message for all the French fans and future fans!
Delain @ Zénith (Lille, FR) - 28.04.2007This concert was the first one of the Dutch band Delain in France. And the French audience welcomed them pretty well! The Zenith awakened as soon as the first song began. The crowd was immediately touched by their energy, and even if the album had only been available in France for a short time, it seemed that everyone knew it already. May this concert be the first of a long series!
