Daan & Isolde Simply Great - [Houthalen February 12, 2011]

daan isolde concert Hurry and book a seat for one of the remaining concerts in Daan's acoustic tour - highlighting his recent album Simple. Daan & Isolde play a very well structured 90 minute set (including encores) mixing own songs with covers in spectacular and unique 'acoustic' versions.

We went to see the concert in Houthalen - about mid way the tour. Almost a perfect performance - and there is most certainly a danger that it becomes more and more routine and less and less spontaneous/interactive as the tour winds down... But it is certainly a most enjoyable evening. In Houthalen, the playlist included a great version of "Protocol" and a cover of Tim Harden's "Hang on to a Dream"...
