Tales from the road (part 32)
Private Sector performed for the first time ever in Belgium and for once nothing went wrong.....in Sector's set at least. However, with the Golden Mitchums off the tour due to a tragic death, Sector was forced to replace them with another opening act.
The replacements an energetic, yet dangerous, Israeli band called the Mazal Tov Cocktails wreaked havoc in their opening set constantly throwing explosive devices into the audience creating wide spread panic as people scrambled to try and leave the building. By the time Sector hit the stage, the capacity crowd had been reduced to a few hundred who had managed to find shelter far from the stage and throwing distance.
Sector move on to Austria for a couple of shows with new opening act: The Acoustic League of Amish Gentlemen.
