Night of the Proms logoThe international NOTP fanpage provides some fresh info regarding the past and next shows – obviously they spoke/mailed with producer Jan Vereecke:

In our review of the premiere on the 23th of October we concluded that overall the show was good but we complained about the problems regarding the sound. During the rehearsals, Jan reported the sound to be good, but since there is a difference between the sound in an empty and a full arena… The problem is solved now and the quality of the sound became much better. That is good news.

During the weekend, Marie of Roxette got an infection of her throat which caused her voice to be less on the show of last Saturday. Immediatly she was put on medication. On Sunday she sang a lot better and her voice will be back to full strenght from Wednesday on. Also good news.

The running order of the premiere is still applied; the proof that the show was well prepared and jugded by the organization so that no adaption had to be made. Again, good news.

Question of the release for a CD of the Antwerp and The Netherlands edition was not denied by Jan. He wrote:”PERHAPS…”. Wouldn’t that be good news?


Update: Producer Jan Vereecke writes within a post about reactions to the first shows:

… And then Marie was so ill on Saturday that she could barely sing, and it nevertheless has disappointed some people (understandably). … The report of yesterday afternoon (Tuesday) is that her voice got much stronger, but she still suffers a bad cough. We cross fingers for this evening. I hope that we can do a smooth show when Marie’s voice completely returned. …
