I presume the Half Moon wasn't available, here's a link about the club. A nice lady on the phone tells me that it's going to be corporate only, so no chance of any fans getting to this show.

Radio 1 in Belgium did send a journalist and you can hear his report here:
http://www.radio1.be/radio1_master/home ... index.html

For those who don't understand Dutch, these are the highlights. The journalist found it a fantastic concert. It was just AT on piano and EC on vocals (one number on guitar). It swinged a lot and AT was brilliant. There were hardly 100 people in attendance (among them Nick Lowe) and the concert lasted about 40 minutes. EC showed a lot of respect for AT.

Radio 1 will air an interview with EC and AT this saturday, may 27 in the programme "Shuffle" (from 17h till 19h). You can hear it on the internet.

Thanks John. It seems you have to listen to the whole programme, so I'm recording it. Sounds like a good show.
