Rock Werchter 2017 Day One


It’s been a few years since I did a full festival weekend at all. This year when the bands started to be announced for Rock Werchter, I just had to get a combi ticket for the whole weekend… I will keep a day by day journal here of the things I went to see…

Don Juan in Soho -Wyndham’s Theatre, London


I have seen David Tennant on stage now already three times. Twice in the same week when I went to Stratford-upon-Avon when he was doing Hamlet and Love’s labour’s lost, and then a few years later when he and Catherine Tate did Much Ado about Nothing. It seems that he’s doing theatre every 2 years or so and last time he did it, I didn’t go since I was a little scared of going to the Barbican on my own (fear conquered when I went to see Benedict Cumberbatch in Hamlet and it’s an irrational fear since I had heard stories of being a city in the city and that you could get lost there). For that play in the Barbican (Richard II) I do have the DVD but I have to admit I haven’t seen it yet.

I asked my theatre loving friend if she wanted to join me to see this play and well, David is kind of popular so I got a “Hell yes” within minutes. She also said that it’s kinda meta that Casanova would be playing Don Juan.

I fell in love with the story of Peter Quill the moment I saw the first Guardians of the Galaxy film.  Not only with Peter (Starlord) but also the other characters and the setting future but not really with music from the eighties.  The hope is that the story goes further and that this doesn’t become a lame sequel. Hopes are very high on that front since I have not really seen a bad Marvel sequel ever since I started watching.

After having seen what happens to Groot at the end of the previous film, I am also wondering how it will work out for him here. They have been teasing a lot of Groot stuff since I think he is one of the universal favorites of the film.
