Made the trip to Hamm with fellow Dime member torrentino (who also taped the show) who gave support in more than one way (thanks mate!). What a nice show it was! Had a great taping spot and the recording turned out great accordingly. Bringing this to the stage must have been a marathon's work - what a stunning achievement. Thanks to Ian and the band!
