A Saturday outdoor festival gig. Werchter was one of the first festivals SM played, back in the day, and the band and crowd took eachother to their hearts.
What follows is a playlist of video clips created by the SM Official YouTube account showcasing the performance in 2012 – the festival’s “5×5 plus” setlist.
I love this footage. And I will forever say it…not getting into them just a LITTLE BIT earlier to experience these 2012 gigs will be my ETERNAL regret.
I can’t regret not seeing them in 1981 or ‘82 … I was too young, etc, etc. But for 2012 I can always regret simply because I had tried to “get into them” in 2006 and…it just didn’t gel…for some reason.
But hey, thank fuck I tried again in 2014 and it did!
Enjoy the visual set!
