Caravan at De Boerderij in the Netherlands - live review
Venue: De Boerderij, Zoetermere, Netherlands
Canterbury pioneers Caravan visit the Dutch capital of prog!
Because of recent terrorist attacks across Europe, De Boerderij asks for a minute’s silence before the band begin their performance. Once those 60 seconds are over, the crowd applaud out of respect and welcome Caravan to the stage. But instead of the sparkling opening they were expecting, the seasoned musicians begin their set with some soft jamming. The audience exchange confused looks, but the reason for this low-key introduction soon becomes clear. Keyboardist Jan Schelhaas is experiencing some technical issues, but luckily these problems are quickly resolved so he and the rest of the band can begin properly with opening song All This Could Be Yours.
