Every week, we’re digging into our archives to find Within Temptation-facts about every city we’re visiting during the World Tour in 2014. Each week we’re looking for facts, old pictures and videos from past shows.

We are also collecting your memories on our Pinterest Page.

Why Lille?
During our World tour in 2014 we will visit L’Aeronef in Lille on the 22nd of January! This will not be the first time we’re coming to Lille for a show. We’ve performed at Zénith Arena in Lille during our Heart of Everything tour in 2007 and we visited L’Aeronef in Lille during the Unforgiving Tour in 2011.

Lille is the last city French we’re visting during our 2014 tour.

Read one of Sharon’s memories of Lille:
It was the beginning of the tour. In the morning I woke up for the first time in my diva cabin, yes it had a door, a bed and a walk-in-closet…hahaha. No, it’s all true but it wasn’t a walk -in -closet, just a closet.

I left the bus in search of the famous food of France. I noticed a great work of art on the wall across the venue and wanted to take a picture of it later that day. 

I got into my dressing room and I noticed my new wardrobe case… Hell yes, I loved it :-) . Nice red colour and than I opened it and I saw the boys had been there before me. They had named all my drawers differently; Long John, clarence Seedorf, Pablo, …lol.

Being backstage I remember I could hear music coming out of the dressing room of Triggerfinger, probably composing une chanson. On tour they were making music all the time. 

Than I found the partners in crime, the lost boys of Within Temptation trying out their new TRX – workout gadgets. I gave them thumbs up and ran off to catering. That first day I didn’t do much more than prepare myself mentally for the first show & organising my wardrobe case for the rest of the tour. Boring but it needed to be done.

I remember us having a great show and that we were talking a long time with fans in front of the bus & taking group pictures with them. I didn’t forget about ‘the work of art’ on the wall but my picture unfortunately failed in the end, it was too dark. The next time I’m gonna check out if it’s still there & I will take the picture after all :-)

Lille in facts:
- Over 226.000 inhabitants
- Lille is one of France’s top student cities, with over 110.000 students
- The city’s name is derived from the Latin word insula, meaning ‘island’
- Lille is the third largest river port in all of France, right behind Paris and Strasbourg
- One of Lille’s most well-known artists is Raoul de Godewaersvelde, best known for his song “Quand la mer monte”

Within Temptation World Tour Facts: Toulouse

Why Toulouse?
On the 20th of January 2014 we will visit Toulouse during our World Tour in 2014! We will be playing in Le Bikini, where we’ve been before. During “The Unforgiving World Tour” in 2011 we played at the venue as well.

Here’s a nice memory of Sharon:
It was the last warm & sunny day of that year. When I woke up and got out of the bus I met the boys of Triggerfinger, our support act, at the pool. Yes, at ‘Le Bikini’ they have a swimming pool, but where is my bikini…? I forgot it, cry! After a short time I saw a lot of fans, they were all ready in front of the entrance, lining up & waving at us. Respect, as I didn’t expect anyone to be there yet.

Later that day we had a signing session down town. Outside, right in front of the building, there was a big demonstration going on. We had to wait a while before we could start, because of it. So we got a nice view on top of the building in the head office to watch it. Signing sessions always take more time than calculated so we had to rush back to the venue to do a sound check & have dinner. The French kitchen is famous all over the world and even at ‘Le Bikini’ it was heavenly.

I remember the show being extremely hot & wild. The place was packed and everyone was really into it! SUPER! After the show we all went outside and talked to a couple of friends who had been waiting outside. Before taking off with the bus, they surprised us with a few lovely bottles of wine, champagne and even gave us some of the famous french fromage. Tnx, we almost died of the smell, but we all admit it was worth it…hahaha.

It was just one of those, perfect days. Thanks & hope to see you next time again!

PS, check out the tour vlog we made of that day!

Toulouse in facts:
- About 449,328 inhabitants
- The sun shines over the city almost all year-round
