Anniversary shows in Amsterdam and Brussels
In 2019 it’s exactly 30 years ago we started Heideroosjes. That’s why we return, for two anniversary shows! Of course we step back into the arena at the same place where we left it in 2012: Melkweg Amsterdam (26 January) and the AB in Brussels (2 February).
After our final show in September 2012 we hardly spoke or met. We had been together in a van for 23 years, since the time we were kids. Almost 1500 shows from Japan to the US and South Africa. We felt it was time for new things in our personal lives. Fred expanded his cultural events company, Igor kept touring worldwide as a roady for the band EPICA and Frank focused on his audiovisual technician skills. Only Marco remained as a touring artist. He wrote a book, made two solo theatre shows, recorded an album with a new rock band called STAVAST and featured as the host for the Dutch version of the TV show INK MASTER.
In the recent years we kept getting offers to play a reunion show at festivals. But we simply didn’t want to.
Once a year we had a gathering with our old crewmembers to drink beer and talk nonsense.
It was at the end of such night when we decided to celebrate the fact it’s 30 years since we started our band.
And YES, we are looking forward to that (temporary) return in 2019!
Ticket sales for both shows start Saturday 29th September 2018 at 10 AM CET. Please check websites of Melkweg and AB Brussels!
