They had a fantastic setlist (classic oldies and also the good ones from 2032), they were really nice when I got to meet them, and the animation in the background was really good too! One of the better show's I've been to.

Did they start later than announced, and how long was the show - depending on these two questions I can know whether I'll miss the last train back home or not. Thanks in advance! Big smile

I suppose there were no opening acts - that's good for me and my problem.
