UPDATE: Within Temptation Will Be Performing on July 10,2012 at Forum de Beyrouth
The guys that brought Serge Tankian last year (Beirut Rock Festival in Zouk Mikayel Historic Amphitheater), are getting Dead Can Dance this year, in mid-September. But, that’s not the best part. I found out they’re finalizing a deal with Within Temptation too, and before posting this, I gauged the enthusiasm of people who listen to this kinda music, and they seemed super-interested, hence this leak.
BUT, during my “research” I found out Guns’N'Roses will be in Turkey around that time. Normally, a gig in Greece, Turkey or the UAE means a Beirut stop before or after is highly likely… Also in my research, I found out that the Within Temptation singer has collaborated with Armin van Buuren, so she’s ok by me!
So, for now go wild that Within Temptation are most probably coming this September. And who knows, with the RHCP already in town, imagine Guns N Roses, Within Temptation and Dead Can Dance too. (I have no idea how awesome that would be, I don’t really know much about bands. But, I know some of those titles will definitely make a few metal-heads, mosh-pitt bad boys and girls excited. It’s only fair I guess, we got so many awesome DJs, time for “ancient” music now =P
