Ahoy, Rotterdam.

Post by Joan Whittaker »

I have been given a CD of a concert which is said to have taken place at The Ahoy Rotterdam in 1991. However, looking at the set list it would seem to be earlier, probably 1987.

Can anyone who might have been at this concert verify the date. The set list is:

01 - Stainsby Girls
02 - I Can't Dance to That
03 - Ace of Hearts
04 - Candles
05 - Midnight Blue
06 - Josephine
07 - Fool
08 - On the Beach
09 - Auf immer und ewig
10 - Joys of Christmas
11 - Gonna Buy a Hat
12 - I Can Hear Your Heartbeat
13 - Let's Dance
14 - I Don't Know What It Is But I Love It
15 - Steel River (part 1)
16 - Steel River (part 2)
17 - It's All Gone
18 - September Blue
19 - Just Passing Through

With a couple of exceptions the set list is almost the same as that on the Live in Sydney bootleg which was recorded on 3-10-87 so I think your inclinations are correct that it is nearer 1987 than 1991.

Joan ,as i'm sure you are well aware that the track-listing for The Ahoy Rotterdam in 1991 was
01 Intro
02 Auberge
03 Too much pride
04 Josephine
05 You ust be evil
06 Soft top, hard shoulder
07 Gone fishing
08 Road to hell
09 Looking for a rainbow
10 on the beach
11 God's great banana skin

Sounds like a great gig though ,with rarities like Auf immer und ewig & Joys of Christmas not popping up very often
All the best

I really think the date you have must be wrong. There are no tracks on my list from either The Road to Hell (1989), Auberge (1991), God's Great Banana Skin (1992) or Expresso Logic (1993) and you would expect some from these albums if the concert took place in 1993.

The track listing seems to be mainly from Dancing with Strangers (1987) and On The Beach (1986), so I think it is fair to assume that it is part of the Dancing with Strangers tour.

The set list for Manchester on this tour was:

01 Nothing's Happening By The Sea
02 Stainsby Girls
03 I Can't Dance to That
04 Windy Town
05 Ace of Hearts
06 Candles
07 Midnight Blue
08 Josephine
09 Fool If You Think It's Over
10 On The Beach
11 I'm Only Loving You Again
12 Auf Immer und Ewig
13 Joys of Christmas
14 Gonna Buy a Hat
15 I Can Hear Your Heartbeat
16 Let's Dance
17 I Don't Know What It is But I Love It
18 Steel River
19 Sail On
