Saturday July 24th 2010: For these two gigs we needed the support of Martyr drummer Wilfried Broekman. For the first time in SOS history we did Germany and we like it a lot. The Reithalle (horse circuit) in Uelsen was transformed into a concert hall for the Monsters of Rock. German people knows how to rock and the facilities were great. Thanks to Akira and Mannes for the excellent breakfast and the ride in the limousine. Special thanks to Mirjam for her hospitality at the VIP area.

June is going to be a quiet month but we don't care. Everybody including us are watching the World Cup. See you soon!
Saturday May 22nd 2010: Yesterday we've had a great gig in a small place in Eibergen. We didn't expect too much of it but after all it became a huge party. For the encore we've played Dio's Holy Diver as a tribute to the greatest singer in Metal all times.
Today we did the same at the headlining show at Vroomshoop Bosrock. We rocked the place and the local newspaper wrote a nice article about it:
Monday March 29th 2010: After a successful UK tour we're moving back to Oostende by ferry. The English Iron Maiden fans were very surprised to watch the skills of a Dutch Tribute.

Monday March 1st 2010: Last Saturday we returned to a place which was very successful for us last year. The people who saw SOS at Bosrock voted us back at the smaller stage at Het Front Vroomshoop.

Now we need to prepare for our UK tour at the end of this month. Hope to see you at April 9th in Oosterhout.

Special thanks to our new Charlotte Caecilia, roadie Nico and the Azotod crew, you did a great job! Hope to see you again in Vroomshoop this weekend!

Thanks to Luc and the Rocks crew for this awesome night!
