This way of talking to the audience and making jokes and fun of herself is what hooked me when I listened to her lives shows, human relationship is felt when listening to this kind of live shows than listening to simple released cd or samples.

As Mark Johnson from Fat Monster Films wrote about Gravity video making of on VT forum - 4th February 2009

Hi everyone!
New here, born and raised in the Netherlands! I'm 17 and have been a dedicated fan of Vienna for well over a year.
I was at Vienna's concert in Groningen (Oosterpoort) on 12 March, and it was awesome! (I just can't stop repeating how amazing it was - I'm driving my friends crazy).
It's really hard for me to pick a favorite VT song, I feel something and can relate to every song in some way. I currently only own Waking Hour, but I'm planning to buy more albums, starting with Inland Territory when it's released! ;)

Hi Saekaeru

you should be able to get Inland Territory now over in your part of the world.
Us poor folk on this side of the pond have to either wait or navigate amazon.de
to get it (or both!) :)

Welcome!

Thank you for the welcoming, Scot and Walking Stranger :wink:

Oh my, really? It's already released here? I actually happened to look around on some (dutch) sites to see when it was available. But I guess I looked on the wrong sites, cause they only had Vienna's old albums! Well then I better go shopping and look for it tomorrow then :oops:

Thanks for informing me! *feels dorky*

Well - actually I'm not sure. I know I have a copy that I ordered through
amazon.de - so I know it has at least been released in Germany. I'm not sure about the rest of Europe, though.

Good luck! :)

Welcome to this forum, Saekaeru! :)

Yeah, as far as I'm concerned, the new album is only released in Germany so far but it should be no problem for you to order it from www.amazon.de - that's where I ordered it too.
Anyways, there are all 4 albums available at the concerts so maybe you missed it in Groningen? In Münster you could buy all 4 albums before and after the concert and than after the show Vienna, Alex and Ward were signing the albums and other items. ;) It was really nice of them! <3
I don't know the prices because I already own all the albums and I had my albums' covers with me for the autographs. ;)

Are you going to any other concert of Vienna on this tour??
Originally I only planned to be in Münster but as I'm also driving my friends crazy by telling how amazing it is, I just decided to go to the concert in Cologne on Saturday too! :D Can't wait!!!

Best greetings! :D

Hi, everyone! I'm new here! I'm currently a student in Birmingham (Alabama, not the UK), and... I like long walks on the beach?? Oh, I'm so bad at introductions! What else should I say? :D

Welcome amariyah!

Maybe you can start by telling us how you found Vienna's music and what other music you listen to? :)

Hope to see you around.

*waves at Scot!*

Hmm, let's see - it's been such a long time! I think someone sent me MP3s of "Lullabye" and "Harbor" and said, you HAVE to listen to these! I did, and I was totally hooked, had to have more. :)

As for other music, I listen to pretty much anything except screamo death metal and 80s pop... but I'm a sucker for singer-songwriters with really thoughtful lyrics. Anyone ever heard of Jeffrey Foucault? He's folk-americana-blues, beautiful voice, and a lot of his lyrics are poetry put to music. That kind of thing is my absolute favorite!
