14 juin 2000, Vaison La Romaine, ThÃ©Ã¢tre Romain
En raison dâ€™une pluie (pourtant pas si diluvienne que Ã§a puisquâ€™un nuage impromptu et une averse dâ€™un quart dâ€™heure Ã©taient la cause du dÃ©gÃ¢t), le concert a du Ãªtre annulÃ©.
La nouvelle de lâ€™annulation nâ€™est tombÃ©e que dans lâ€™aprÃ¨s-midi (et en 2000, pas encore de twitter ou de facebook…) si bien que de nombreux fans sâ€™Ã©taient dÃ©placÃ©s… pour trouver les arÃ¨nes sous le soleil mais fermÃ©es…
3000 personnes Ã©taient attendues (et Ã©taient certainement prÃ©sentes…)
Thom : That was hard work getting it together. Weâ€™ve had a shit day. Can you pass on apologies to all who came a long way for todayâ€™s show. It was just too dangerous with the thunder and lightning, very, very frightening. Iâ€™m off to sleep, goodnight.
14/6/00 we had to cancel the vaison show…………so firstly apologies to everyone who had tickets and were looking forward to the gig……weâ€™d even got the setlist done with different new songs from last night and soundchecked them……….and what an amazing place…..a roman theatre like last night in arles. the freak rain was of course to blame…….the stage had a good three inches of the stuff from a twenty minute downpour and with another storm forecast for 9.30pm and alot of the equipment still damaged from last nightâ€™s storm in arles the decision was made to pull the show………somehow we got away with it last night but today just seemed as if it wasnâ€™t meant to be…….sorry again to those in vaison …..
