Well luckily the setlist is already on here:) (I am not too good in remembering the order in which the song were played:))
The sound was great (very loud but great). They seem to have a lot of fun on stage. Fran started of by asking if anyone wanted tea (it was quite a small venue), and started taking everybodies orders on milk and/or sugar:) Klaus did a great piano solo on Good Feeling and was suitingly thanks for it, by Fran in a "swedish cook" (for anyone not knowing the "swedish cook", watch The Muppets!!) kinda conversation. Andy had no where to climb so he took the stairs to the balcony, what ended in him getting some what stuck half way, since the balcony were to crowded to let him move through. What ever happened in the middle, was just sooo good. I had the best time!
And ofcourse there was the pogo-session at the end. Still jumping:)

First time I saw Travis in real life! Wow! It was fantastic! I was happy to hear they will come back to The Netherlands this year! I will be there.
I really enjoyed some of my favorite songs: As You Are, Good Feeling, Battleships and All I Want To Do Is Rock. How the guys entered the Melkweg was in style. With the sounds of Rocky they walked from the back to the stage!

This was my first every Travis gig and I enjoyed myself SO MUCH. They were having so much fun on stage and the crowd was really amazing. I think everybody sang along with almost everything!

- Fran saying "It's like a band with 1,000 singers".
- The entire setlist, basically ;)
- The interaction with the crowd
- Love Will Come Through for the simple fact that it's my current favourite song
- Flowers In The Window acoustic, with Andy playing the guitar from behind Fran
- Andy being a Rock God
- Klaus! Klaus! Klaus! Klaus!
- Humpty Dumpty Love Song. Such a nice surprise!
- Dougie's dancing
- Why Does It Always Rain On Me? with the jumping
- Saying they were going to return to the Netherlands soon-ish
- The pure joy of it all. Maybe they hated every second of it, but it looked like they were having SO MUCH fun!

Oh, I just loved everything! :D

Humpty Dumpty Love song was not on the original set list, glad they played it though...wonderful to hear it live.
Andy stole the show though for most of the evening. Lets not talk about the stairs incident with Andy, since I was standing there ;-)

There were no low moments, but way too many highlights to sum up. As others have already mentioned, they really seemed to enjoy themselves the whole evening, which to me is always a good sign.
Apart from all this, the crowd was just AMAZING! I have not experienced such a great crowd in Amsterdam (Paradiso/Melkweg) for a very long time.

Just brilliant!

What a great entrance to the show; the bandmembers walked from the back of the audience to the front and on stage.

These guys are hillarious, I laughed my ass off. It must be great to have so much fun on stage and to be able to get the whole crowd going. Awesome concert!!!!! I will definitely be there when they come back to Amsterdam. All my friends in TO have to attend the concert at the Kool Haus in July!!!!

By the way the opening band was great as well, what a voice the singer had!!! I haven't been able to figure out what the name of the opening band is I was expecting to find it on this site but I haven't yet.
Can't wait to hear more from that band though.

Oh wow, this was just amazing, the best concert i've ever been to, there was so much love! I've been a fan for many years but i've never seen Travis live before. I was so happy to get a good spot in the second row, the atmosphere was brilliant, i couldn't stop smiling and felt like hugging everybody. And it was so nice to have met Neil, Andy and Dougie afterwards. But seriously, i can't express how awesome the concert was, Flowers in The Window was so beautiful, jumping around with Andy was so much fun, seeing all those happy people around me, just wow! I'll never forget this, THANK YOU, and i can't wait to see you all again next time ♥

@ willemijn: the opening band was called Unkle Bob, never heard of them before but they were very good :)
