Werchter Boutique 2018

WB18-complete-header.png

When I saw that this year’s Werchter Boutique would have Bruno Mars as a headliner, I didn’t doubt for a second to buy a ticket. A few years ago, I saw Bruno perform in Antwerp and I’m still in awe of that show (musically but also staging). Sometime later, the supporting acts were announced and there are some in there that I want to see. Me a happy camper (although I don’t camp) and on my way to the Werchter Festival ground for the first time this year (yes, many other times to follow in the coming weeks).

Love, Simon

A few months ago, I bought the book Simon vs the Homo sapiens agenda. I already knew it would be an adaption at that time and already said I’d make sure to finish the book before the film was released. About a month before the film would be released in Belgium I finished the book and have high hopes for the adaptation. As the film has been released in America long before Belgium and all the positive news I read about the American Gay acting community encouraging people to see the film by renting a whole cinema room so that everyone could see it even for free, my hopes for the film grew and grew. I had the opportunity to see it during the Belgian premiere.

Deadpool 2

In the end credits of the first Deadpool film, there was already a little hint to the second film. Deadpool and Cable. As I had enjoyed the first one immensely (I went to see it on Valentine ’s Day with some friends, who says there needs to be a significant other), I now want to see if they can keep up the humor and if the dreaded sequel curse doesn’t affect Deadpool.

Sam Smith – Sportpaleis

Up till now I’ve regretted the fact that I haven’t seen Sam Smith live yet. I was very happy when I got tickets for the new “The Thrill of it all” tour.  As he will be playing in one of the biggest venues in Belgium, I now kind of regret not seeing him in a smaller venue since his music would come out more in an intimate (read smaller) setting. But now I get to see him sing for the first time and I’m looking forward to it!

Avengers: Infinity War

https_%2F%2Fblogs-images.forbes.com%2Fcurtissilver%2Ffiles%2F2018%2F04%2Favengers.jpg

Ten years of Marvel superhero films has to cumulate to something. This film is what it’s all been building up to. Who would have thought that Iron Man would start all this? After becoming a high grossing company and being under the wings of Disney, what’s next? Earlier this year, Black Panther already had great box-office numbers and I wonder if this film can go even higher. From the trailer and the poster, I assume that every one of the heroes from the past ten years will be in this film. Will they win or lose? What will happen? I’m very curious to see the film!

Air Traffic – AB

Ten years ago, I loved the album Fractured life but never got to see Air Traffic life. Last year when they performed in het Depot in Leuven (three days in a row) I didn’t get tickets because I would be going to Lady Gaga the same weekend (and this concert got postponed). So when I saw that they would be playing the AB in Brussels, I didn’t hesitate and immediately got tickets. This concert (Saturday) sold out, and a second was planned for the Sunday. I’m happy to have gotten tickets for Saturday as this is an ideal concert night (compared to one during the week). I’m very curious to see which songs they will perform since there has been talking about a second album but only a single has been released.

Fall Out Boy – Vorst Nationaal

During the last few years, I’ve been getting back into Fall out Boy more and more. Maybe it’s a nostalgia thing. But when they released their latest album Mania, a tour could not stay behind for long. Originally they did a small teaser tour in Europe but they only went to Germany and the United Kingdom (which are easy to go to for me). So when they did announce the full tour and Belgium was on the agenda, I used my “fan-code” and got my tickets a day early. In hindsight, this wasn’t really necessary since the concert didn’t sell out.

Hamilton – London

hamilton

Ever since I saw that this musical was getting a West End version, I wanted to see it. It’s much easier for me to go to London than New York.  I subscribed to the Delfont Mackintosh website to be able to buy tickets in advance of the presale. This meant that I have bought my tickets last year in January and I am only now (in February) going to see it. I have very high expectations since this is a Tony award-winning musical and normally this proves the quality of the book. Let’s hope the London crew live up to the expectations

Editors – Sportpaleis

After having seen Editors at Pukkelpop last year and being happily surprised with the choice of setlist, I decided to buy tickets to the concert. When a week before the concert the new album was released and I started to listen to it, I was even more psyched because I really love the way how they went back to their roots with their music.

A History of Magic – Exhibit – London

maxresdefault

I have been a fan of Harry Potter since the first book was released. When the 20 years Harry Potter celebrations started and I saw this poster of a phoenix, I had to read what the British Library was doing to celebrate one of the now iconic books which have been read by two generations while growing up.  I already found out that the exhibit is about real historic artifacts that are linked to magic but also some artifacts that are linked to the Harry Potter books themselves. I can’t wait to see how the exhibit is set up!
