Dutch line up in anticipation of Them Crooked Vultures

There's been a long line at the box office at Melkweg in Amsterdam this afternoon as tickets went on sale for tomorrow's show by Them Crooked Vultures.

The band distributed a snapshot of the scene on Twitter today, which is shown at right.

Some on the band's official forum have been filing reports from outside the venue, saying hundreds had shown up to obtain their allotted one ticket apiece.

There's also an interview with some of the people in line, shown here.

The show in Amsterdam takes place at 9 p.m. tomorrow. It will be the second gig from Them Crooked Vultures, the new supergroup with John Paul Jones, Dave Grohl and Josh Homme, and the band hasn't confirmed any further shows.

However, it's likely the band will be playing festival dates very soon. Watch this space for further developments as reported by Lemon Squeezings.

In the meantime, a color version of the Chicago gig photo at ThemCrookedVultures.com is included among The Week's Best Live Shots at RollingStone.com.

(Update, Aug. 19: The Amsterdam show hasn't sold out yet. Remaining tickets will go on sale at the Melkweg box office beginning at 3:30 p.m.)


  1. Personally, I love all the mystery that encircles this band. It gives it a certain Zeppelin-esque sort of aura. But don't go to the forum on themcrookedvultures.com if you like the mystery. Everyone on there is whining and complaining that they only announce one date at a time using Google Earth,yada yada yada. We are so fixated on instant gratification that when someone comes along and tries to slow us down, we whine and complain like 2 year olds wanting their bottle. I use their Twitter updates and on here cause Steve, you're awesome and you don't whine. To everyone on that board that is complaining, settle down! Let them do what they want to do and quit whining when you don't get your way. Revel in the mystery behind the music...

  2. Anonymous is bang on. Let's revel, shall we?

  3. I see Jonesy with a National in his hands. I wonder if there is a cut on the album with him playing it. That would be awesome!!
