Bringing you all the Tom Waits news since 2004
I hope that his knowledge of Waits's future plans is more sound than his understanding of English. 'Waits never said 'formal environment' when commenting on the Bourla.' Well, he did. Twice.W.
i hope this is true, as i've just got BIG TIME for £20
I've read 3 newspapers where they say that he got his own camera-people in Bourla, probably for a DVD. But it's still a rumour
Tom may have had his own camera people at the Bourla, there was definitely also a crew from the Flemish public broadcaster, as they broadcast short clips from 3 different songs in the late night news on Saturday...And yes, Tom did comment twice on the formal environment of the Bourla, also saying that he thught it was ' a grand place'...
Flemish newspaper 'De Morgen' featured a wonderful review of the Bourla show, with three great pictures (sadly, not online...). They also ran a small feature on Waits' movements while in Belgium:Thursday afternoon: check in at hotel 'De Witte Lelie'Thursday night: dinner at 'De Kleine Zavel'Friday morning: tour of the diamond districtFriday afternoon: visited the zoo with his youngest son, SullivanFriday night: rehearsal and soundcheckSaturday afternoon: soundcheck until 6 pmSaturday evening: show at BourlaSaturday night: meeting with Anton Corbijn
There was indeed 1 crew allowed(TV1)to film 2 times 30 seconds of the concert.
Me and my friends saw the third Amsterdam show where we also spotted cameras. After the show we talked to one of the cameramen and he thought it was not for a DVD of the gigs itself but he claimed he was shooting for a documentary cause they also filmed in hotels and on the road and stuff...Of course, I don't know how credible this information is... Who knows what Tom's intention is...?
