WT are also doing a "virtual" streaming show, on the 8-9-10-11th of July. I'm almost tempted to buy a ticket to see how the experience compares to The Islanders Arms.

Music combined with bleeding-edge technology: a show that is out of this world!
We are thrilled to invite you to 'The Aftermath – A Show In A Virtual Reality'. A show that takes place in different scenes of a post-apocalyptic world, in which we are witness of the aftermath of destruction of mankind. A world in which it is unknown if anyone or anything of the human race survived. It is a search for answers about both its becoming as well as its legacy. 

The Aftermath is an online show, fueled by bleeding-edge technology that enables us to do a performance that’s out of this world – literally! During this digital show we play a variety of newer and older songs in four different worlds. Expect guest singers from all over the world to join us on stage for striking duets in even more striking settings!
Note: both shows will be similar, but will start at different times to accommodate fans from across the world!

The virtual Within Temptation show has been postponed by 1 week (to July 15-16). Looks like it's all about smoothing out some technical glitches.

There's also a new preview video, it looks very video-gamey but the guest singers part is intriguing.

Edit: it would seem like Tarja might be one of the guest singers.

Well I saw the virtual show, I liked the performance but didn't dig the special effects so much. It was nice seeing Tarja sing but throughout the show the emphasis was on the sprawling visuals and as you can see in the Shed My Skin video most of the time the performers were tiny blobs on the screen.

If I understand correctly, original virtual show ticket owners can watch it again for free during the Holidays. 👍

I just finished watching The Aftermath and I liked it! I would have loved to see Tarja singing and having a great time with the band instead of standing some sort of virtual platform far away from others. 😔 But yeah, 'The Purge' gave me goosebumbs as always. Now I have to see them live someday!

I rewatched the show over the holidays and I enjoyed it more than the first time, I think I was put off by the distracting visual effects the first time around. But I enjoyed the music and the effort involved. Let's see how many bands go back to create a second virtual show?

I was able to go to the Within Temptation concert in March 2019 when they came to the Rebel. In Flames was the co-headliner while Smash into Pieces was the opening act. I was right at the front of the stage for the show and it was amazing overall.

What really made my night was the VIP session that I was luckily able to grab a ticket for as it was limited to 10 people only, though they did allow a family to attend the VIP Meet and Greet. I got to say hello to Sharon den Adel, had a picture with her - and even got to give her a hug. 😄 I got my stuff signed and had a picture with the band before they left to get ready for the show. I did get to see a soundcheck where they performed "Mercy Mirror", though it wouldn't get played during the show.

It was a great week considering that I saw Disturbed a second time two days before.

Sounds like a great night! 🤘 Sharon seems to be a very nice, grounded person. I've never seen WT live yet. Well, not live-live. I wonder if M&G will still be a thing in the post-Covid world, but I guess it can be done if less hugging is involved. 😁

The sound is very good on the new song, it definitely gives THOE and Resist vibes to it.

I'll have to order my copies of the new editions as I do need to get a better version of "World of Make Believe" for my collection, and I do not have that in the CD I got.

I have jumped on this opportunity to better get to know WT, it's not a group I follow closely but I like what I've heard from them and I enjoyed their virtual live performance. The new edition CDs are available separately as well.

I've been hearing from an FB group for Within Temptation that one of the two shows (possibly both) in Amsterdam were filmed with cameras present. I'm thinking, there's gonna be a Worlds Collide live DVD and album in the future. 👁️‍🗨️

If a live DVD / CD is announced, I wonder how it will go. Will Disc 1 be Within Temptation's set and Disc 2; Evanescence's set?

That would be different, off the top of my head I can't remember of a live album featuring two bands? 🤔
