[:en]ANNEKE VAN GIERSBERGEN’S VUUR COMING TO BUDAPEST
Dutch vocalist Anneke van Giersbergen is easily one of the hardest working people in music, and an artist that defies being pigeonholed by genre. She will forever be known as the vocalist for melancholic metallers The Gathering, but since striking out on her own in 2007, she has solidified a solo career, recorded and performed multiple times with Canadian metal genius Devin Townsend, launched the prog rock band The Gentle Storm, and recorded an album with Icelandic folk group Árstíðir. This has provided Anneke with a huge catalogue to choose from as a live performer, but it has also created a certain amount of confusion amongst her fans which has led to the creation of a new band, VUUR, a new band that features some of the best heavy metal players in the Netherlands.
The band’s debut album “In In This Moment We Are Free” came out on October 20 last year and VUUR is going to introduce it to the fans as a part of the UK & EUROPEAN TOUR 2018 tour. The stop in the Hungary will take place in Budapest on February 18th in A38. You can get the tickets here.
The band will not only perform the new songs but also your favorite songs from Anneke’s repertoire, so be there!
Anneke adds: ”I will always play the Gathering and Devin Townsend songs, I love them. I also realize that the fans want to hear them, so I will never abandon them. I have also my favorites from the Gentle Storm which I perform. View VUUR as the final destination, it is not a project so when we create a setlist there are going to be new songs as well as the popular ones from my past.”[:]
