Who else watched Retrospect? What did you think?

The first section of the show is up on YouTube already: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=O19iE3xf6A4

I didn't watch it, but from the explosion on all the social networks I'm on there's much speculation as to whether Simone is pregnant or not. Many of the comments actually made me really angry and sad at how invasive and horrible they were.

However, I'll be happy when the show is released on DVD! Very Happy

Yeah hopefully it won't be too long! I think Nuclear Blast are already taking down the videos, oh dear. Razz But they could easily just put it on the DVD as it was shown with no editing, it was fine.

I thought the concert was really excellent. I was sad that there was no Kingdom of Heaven, Fools of Damnation or Tides of Time, though the orchestra played some extracts. Every song they did play was awesome though. Floor was great as usual and we go to see the old members too. Both Simone and Mark's vocals were a little rubbish in places, but I always think that Razz and regardless of how I feel, they clearly put in maximum effort. I had a great time watching it.

The whole thing about people saying Simone looks pregnant is bizarre, she looks totally normal to me. I mean it's completely possible that she is and people can think that if they want, but people actually messaging her about it is ridiculous! She could be really offended by that.

EMP just added a load of Retrospect t-shirts to order:

It's a shame the nicest designs are all men's ones! I might get one anyway and just buy a small Razz

My humble opinion? Everything, and I mean everything, about this concert was perfect.

The setlist. The sound mix (band/choir/orchestra). The size of the venue. The orchestra playing an instrumental medley in the middle of the set. A new song for the occasion. Early entry VIP package. The special guests. The afterparty.

Overall THE best concert I've been to so far, and that includes two HUGE shows by my number 1 band Within Temptation (Beursgebouw 2007, Elements 2012). Actually, WT should study this concert closely and learn a thing or two, especially after the almost anti-climax that was Elements.

Waiting patiently for the blu-ray:D

I only watched online but I agree it was amazing Smile they did miss out 3 of my favourite songs but then they have so many awesome songs that it would be impossible to fit them all in. So in general it's a great setlist.

You saw both Elements and Retrospect in person?! WOW, lucky lucky.

I was really hoping to buy the Blu-Ray, but I see that Amazon US is listing it as being $44.35...umm, yeah, I love Epica, but...

The one I ordered from their site was 35 euros which is about 48 dollars... But it's only 21 on Amazon UK! Beginning to think I should've gone with that one. Sad But I wanted the bonus magnet and entry to the signed guitar competition, oh dear.
