On friday november 27th we attended Bruce Kulick’s Private Party in Amsterdam (NL) limited to 120 guests only!
After the doors went open and we got in, we checked out Bruce merchandise, sadly he not got his new album for sale there (release in Europe: Januari 29th, in the US: Februari 16th 2010) but had a new version of his BK3 EP for his European fans for sale! Also there was a book, where you could write a personal message to Bruce, that would be presented to him right after his show. Of course we wrote something in for him with a photo of us.
Around 9 PM Bruce took the stage, he regoniced us right away, becasue we stood right in front of him, lol. He welcomed everyone for coming and told about his busy schedule of last week, with seeing KISS live in Anaheim, Fantasy Camp and of course coming over for his Private Parties in Europe. It was a kind of guitar clinic, but all in a easy comfortable way, all relax. Bruce started with playing the leads of Unholy. Then he gave Marina his guitar, so that he could take of his shirt. She couldn’t believe she got his guitar in her hands! Bruce joked and said; "she asked if see could take it with her "…
Bruce played guitar, backed up by a tape, on the songs as: Liar, Jumping The Shark & Pair Of Dice. At the end he played parts of; Warmachine, No, No, No and God Give Rock & Roll To You II. Between the songs he explained some tricks of his guitarplaying and about his upcoming new BK3 album as well. After the set was done, the special book was presented to Bruce and he was suprised by it and thank everyone who contributed to it.
It was time for a small break before the Meet & Greet started, it al was relax, you could come by his table when you wanted. We waited till the end, Bruce was glad to see us and I start telling him how much I loved the new songs (because they played 90 seconds clippings of all the new songs from his BK3 album on the background during the M&G session and as a bonus they played: Hand Of The King, with Nick Simmons on vocals, in his entirely) Also Bruce appreciated it that Marina runs his fanpage on Myspace. We took photo’s with him and he signed items for us. Again Bruce was very nice to us and we had a awesome evening!
Bruce said this on his site about the evening:
" Sad to leave Holland. Thank you, all my Dutch fans! "
So enjoy the photo’s:
