Personal note:

After seeing Dead can Dance live for the first time in 1993 and back at the reunion in 2005, I was very happy after nine years we could see them live again. And this time I had the equipment to film this show in great quality!
I just bought this camera a few months before this show and had already filmed a couple of other bands (with some trial & error). This time I knew how to get everything right for the best recording.
We only had to see if we could get a seat close to the stage for a
good close-up recording.
We walked into the venue a bit late and it was already packed. We walked to the front to see if there were still empty seats and to our surprise on both sides of the podium there was still enough room for the two of us. Probably people didn't want to sit in front of the PA speakers. For us that wasn't a problem and we didn't really notice it during the show. The sound in the venue was clear, also in our seats.
A great spot for filming!

The support act was David Kuckhermann, a German who gave the audience a kind of workshop with exotic drums (Hang) and tambourine.
A very good warmup for the DCD performance!
I've included a clip from the 'Arabic Tambourine' piece (shot with HTC).

About half an hour later Dead can Dance entered the stage.
From then on the audience was mesmerised for the next 2 hours.
A Dead can Dance show is almost a religious experience.
Brandon was a lot balder than the last time I saw them and Lisa was
(as always) her beautiful self.
A great show!

Battery change after 'Sanvean' and before 'Nierika' (goose bumps with this song everytime), but no songs are missed, just some audience.
During filming the show with the Olympus, I also took out my HTC EVO 3D phone and shot a couple of photo's and videos in 3D. For people with a 3D monitor, I have included these as well.
The clips in 3D are MP4 1280x720, the songs:

(numbered according to the setlist)

04. Kiko
08. Sanvean
11. The Host of Seraphim

The audio is not very good on these clips, but it gives you a chance to see DCD in 3D.
