[pic=121_1254238968.jpg]Within Temptation speelde al menig concertzaal en festivalweide plat met hun bombastische symfonsiche metal, maar de laatste tijd doet de band het wat rustiger aan en veel ingetogener op het podium. Hun uitverkochte theatertournee van vorig jaar bracht hen tot in de statige Koningin Elisabethzaal en volgend jaar opnieuw (24 paril 2010).Het concert in het Muziekcentrum Frits Philips in Eindhoven, Nederland van 30 November 2008 werd integraal opgenomen en verschijnt op 2 november op live CD "An Acoustic Night At The Theatre".Tijdens de repetities van de theatertournee onstond een nieuwe single, de gevoelige ballad "Utopia (ft. Chris Jones). De single is een duet met UK singer-songwriter Chris Jones die zangeres Sharon den Adel ontmoette bij het samenwerken met world-famous DJ Armin van Buuren op zijn track "In And Out Of Love".Bekijk hier de video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oEIvlihb2MsDe band omschijft het verhaal van de single "Utopia" als volgt:Utopia is about two lovers who, rather like the royal children in [Hänsel und Gretel composer] Engelbert Humperdinck’s Die Königskinder fairytale opera, can't be together because they are separated by their contrasting dreams of the ideal life. Sharon elaborates, "The only way to be together is for one of them to sacrifice their dream. Utopia is a perfect world and they ask themselves: Why does it have to be like this? Why does it rain in Utopia? It really is about this one moment that we each inevitably experience: reaching a point in your life where you have to decide what you want your future to look like."If you should encounter any difficulties or have any questions regardingthis download, please feel free to contact your Regional PromotionRepresentative and we will be happy to assist you further.Please find attached a hypertext link to a digitally encoded file ofthe above-referenced music, which you may reproduce for the sole purposeof publically performing such music on your radio station.
