RED @ Atak, Enschede 19-04-2012


After their performance at the Xnoizz Flevo Festival RED came back to Europe to do a full tour. After a show in Tivoli Utrecht it was time for this show in Atak Enschede. The show was in the smaller stage of this venue. But the room was already packed when we arrived.

The dutch band SeriouS had the privilege to open tonight. I never heard of the band. They play rock with some harder parts. Musically they were good although it missed some creativity. But the singer missed charisma and he wasn´t that off a great singer either. But overall it was a nice opening.

After everything was prepared on stage RED was ready to play their set. They started heavy with songs like `Feed the Machine` and `The Outside`. Allot of energy was coming off stage. Already after 3 songs they played a few ballets songs like “Lost” and “Not Alone”. Everybody was singing along.

After a drumsolo with different beats over some samples of rock and urban songs the energy was picked up again with “Faceless”. After “Already Over” they asked the crowed to sit down and jump with them when the next song started. Everybody went down and when they started the song “Confession” the whole room exploded.

With the song “Shadows” the singer went crowdsurfing to the back of the place and back to stage again. After that more people joined crowdsurgfing. They ended with the song “Death Of Me” but not for long. They came back for their encore with their hit “Breathe”.

It was an awesome end of this great show with good sound and a great band with a well-balanced set. From soft to harder songs with no boring moments and covering their whole catalog.
