Thanks Emilia
    I am quite tempted by this.  Could combine seeing AC with a weekend in Amsterdam.   I wonder what other concerts  she has planned .

I didn't bother being tempted, just gave into temptation immediately and got a ticket.

I thought I really should as we were discussing travelling from the UK to Gigs in Forn Parts a while ago, and I also possibly hold the reverse Distance Travelled To See Anna record - quarter of a mile to the Troxy. 

Really looking forward to this, and a nice weekend in Amsterdam, with a bit of luck and not tempting fate ...

Hi Wild Corgi
 
  Ok . I think I will go for this, but I can not read Dutch. Which tickets did you buy. There seems to be two grades, 10 euros and 40 euros.

I went for the Anna-specific 10 euro version - nothing as attention grabbing in the rest of the programme, for me at any rate. 

I'm told there's an English version of part of the site - but that was too late to be of use,  so that nice Mr Google Translate was my best friend for the duration.  This is probably where I find Mr GT in fact cheated on me and made me buy something I didn't want, but too late now!

Ok .  Thanks , thats cheap enough .   I will get tickets.    Worry about the details later,   not too much to waste if we have got it wrong.

It did make things more - interesting. Well no matter what I've got tickets for,  a weekend in Amsterdam is going to be good.

Yes should be great. 
 If anybody else is thinking of going ,I would get the tickets booked as there is only about 650 available.

And there looks as if there is a free party afterwards.  All for £9 !
   This has really given us something to look forward to.

Show is now on AC Facebook site.
   Get your tickets quickly.   !!!



  Now there is an english version on the site.   The concert will be Anna and her band , plus a 50 piece orchestra. Obviously similiar to the Christmas Show, but without the special guests.     The Concert hall looks very impressive.  Well worth a trip to Amsterdam.  I reckon this could be better than the Christmas Show .

Oh great NOW there's an English version on the site [mutter mutter curse]

The orchestra sounds intriguing too http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metropole_Orkest - maybe no choir?  but it does have a wind and brass section. Well,  at least on paper it does. Yes yes there's no guarantee they'll be used, I know.

This is going to be so very good.

If anybody is thinking of going to this concert, they need to get sorted out very quickly.
  This festival is obviously a big event in Amsterdam and all the hotels around the area are rapidly becoming fully booked for this weekend.  Plus all the flights are getting full.
    I just got the last 2 tickets on my flight from Stansted on the Friday, and the apartment I booked near the hall was the last one available.

Hi Michael G and wild corgi,

did you both buy standing tickets or seated? Seems there are no seated tickets available for the pit only 1st tier?? Where are the standing places??? On the website http://www.concertgebouw.nl it says the concert is seated.

Greetings,
Claudia
