Rome… or rather Ciampino. A small town a few train stops outside of Rome.
This gig could’ve been so much more than what it eventually became. One train station over QOTSA made their debut appearance in Rome in a well promoted outdoors festival-thingy. Needless to say, this made our club gig somewhat less interesting for quite a few punters, and I must say I think we’d have been better off playing Rome ANY other day this year. The Queens are bigger than us in Italy too, and plain won this one.
‘Look, foot massages don’t mean shit’. Really, Jules?
Watching Spinal Tap on the bus afterwards felt very appropriate…
That said the people that showed up made more noise and got more into it than any north-of-the-Alps crowd, so it still felt good to us! Nothing to say and Fool’s gold made their first tour appearences too, and I think this was my favourite Hell so far!
Thank you each and every one of you for making us feel so very welcome – we love you Rome!
Thank YOU, guys, for being always SO great. This time had a special feeling, so intimate… :) I know that being on stage with a little audience is disappointing for the band, but I hope we showed you our devotion. Looking forward for next time in Rome! Ciao!
That was one of the best live performance i’ve ever seen. Period. (first motorpsycho concert for me!)
I was outside orion at ten o clock waiting for a friend and I heard qotsa beginning their concert with millionaire…for a minute I’d wish to be there but I choosed motorpsycho and my istinct never fail. this was the third time for me, better than the others, but I kown the next will be better again. motorpsycho forever
The concert was GREAT!! Hell 1-7 made me feel in paradise…
thank you Bent, thank you Snah, thank you Ken, thank you Reine, thank you Staff!!! See you soon!!
I don’t know how many times the band played in Rome (it’s the fifth time for me), but since that amazing night, we (me and my girlfriend) decided that every time Motorpsycho will be in town, we’re going to see them!!!!
We love you too!!!
the first time i saw the band it was in 1993 (Villaggio Globale), so we can say Motorpsycho it’s forever…
There’s a terrific amount of knldgewoe in this article!
