  • Concert in Ljutomer

    The way to Ljutomer is a bit longer and this gave us an opportunity to take a nap on our tour bus. We arrived refreshed and ready for the sound check.
    We have to say that the venue is extremely loud and acoustic, which means it can chirp a bit in the ears every now and then. After the dinner we returned to the hall and listened to Tide. At 21.00 it was our turn. The gig was one of the best as far as our feeling is concerned. However, we did have some technical difficulties but that can happen occasionally.
    After the gig we spent some time together with the members of Tide and our fans. We signed CDs, t-shirts, posters, etc. We are very proud of our audience and without it there would be no proper party! Until next Friday when we perform in Maribor… see you!!!

  • Concert in Ilirska Bistrica

    As we arrived in Ilirska Bistrica on Friday, the hall had already been waiting for us with doors open.
    This was our first concert in this town and we asked a bit if there’s a lot of youths and at what places do they usually go to. We spotted a certain HC club, which was supposed to be for concert purposes, but it was closed. Around 700 people came to our gig which is a record number for the area. Leaf-fat warmed up the crowd and Siddharta gave them a two-hour show where pleasure, party and rock ‘n’ roll are always the top priorities! The crowd was outstanding, full of energy and happiness! It’s really nice to see that what you do gives so much pleasure to people.
    We got back to Ljubljana in the morning hours. We went our separate ways to get some sleep as quickly as possible for there was the 12 o’clock bus to Ljutomer waiting for us.

  • Concert in Šentjur pri Celju

    Saturday. Sunny day and cloudless sky. On the way to Šentjur we’re watching a film. Action film with Eddie Murphy and Robert DeNiro. As far as the ride is concerned there’s nothing to add. What a laugh…
    After the arrival in Šentjur we had enough time to go for a walk on such a fair weather day. Before the sound check we had a few short interviews. Afterwards we had dinner which was good and we were in a good mood. Feeling like this we went back to the place of the concert. At 9 o’clock the sound of train was heard and Siddharta started the show with Mr. Q. The hall was extremely hot but its sound has been the most suitable for concerts so far and the party was kicking. The crowd was going wild together with us for the whole two hours. We have to admit that we truly enjoy seeing the way a packed hall is accepting us. This is what we love to do the most. Without all this, without you, our dearest fans, Siddharta wouldn’t even exist. We’re all looking forward to the next week and the gigs in Ilirska Bistrica and Ljutomer.

  • Concert in Domžale

    In expectation of our setting off for the gig in Domžale on Friday, we had engagements throughout the whole week. Beside practices, we also had meetings and went through the entire organization of concerts, just to make sure everything is going to run smooth.
    The arrival in Domžale was one of the fastest. When we came to the place, the crew had already been prepared and waiting. Our hardworking boys put the equipment on stage. We tuned the instruments and started the sound check. After the sound check we had dinner and then we went to see the performance of our guests TIDE. They warmed up the place really well. At 9 o’clock it was our turn to go on stage. The concert was outstanding in every possible way – great sound in the hall and on the stage, the hall full of party people, the atmosphere and the feeling of the band itself has been the best so far. After the concert we devoted time to our fans to take pictures, talk, give signatures, etc. We had excellent time in Domžale and we hope you did just as well with us. Tonight we’re leaving to Štajerska, Šentjur pri Celju to be exact and party there. How it is going to be and how it was… you will find out that tomorrow!
    Have fun and see you soon at one of our next concerts

  • Ajdovščina concert

    After cold Jesenice we arrived in Ajdovščina’s sport centre Police at 15:00, where practically everything was ready for the sound check and waiting for us. After the sound check we went on a late lunch. We were feasted with home cooking and drinks. We have to say the staff was exceedingly kind. After the lunch we had an hour time to get ready for the concert which started at 21:00. Our support band LEAF FAT was already warming up the audience. The temperature in the hall was rather high so we had to dress up suitably. Then we stepped on stage to start a good two hours of rock ’n’ roll party with the audience. The feeling on the stage was exceptional. This was also seen after the gig as we spend almost two hours hanging around and talking with our fans. This time we went to bed at about 4 a.m. Sunday’s rest was more than welcome.
    We are looking forward to the coming concerts where the party will be the top priority. We’re expecting you. Be a part of rock ’n’ roll. See you!

  • Jesenice concert

    We hit the road in the direction of Jesenice on Friday at 13:00. The highway towards Gorenjska was jammed as it was the time when the last holiday makers were heading back home.
    When we arrived to the Podmežakla ice-hockey hall, we had the sound check right away because we were a bit late and the group naio ssaion had the sound check after us. The concert started at 21:00. The crowd, gathering in front of the stage, was unforgettable mainly because of the pure rock energy. The gig lasted for a good two hours and we heated up the ice-hockey hall, which is quite well known as one of the largest in our country. The repertoire was made up of 27 songs from all our albums. This gave much pleasure to many our fans and we could see the contented faces across the hall. After the gig we happily devoted time to all those that wanted our signatures, photos, posters, CDs, etc. We arrived back in Ljubljana at 2 in the morning and went to bed immediately because another concert in Ajdovščina was on the next day.

  • Domine

    Now that Domine is "Hit of the Week" on radio station Val202 and guys performed it on the TLP show, it is crystal clear that this is the new single of Siddharta. For this purpose they shot a video last week. The interesting thing about the video is that the group will not appear in it at all… is this the only interesting thing? Let the photos speak… they will be added on the page in the coming days…

Konzert in Ajdovščina

| 29 pictures

Nach dem kalten Jesenice kamen wir um 15oo Uhr in Ajdovščina im Sportcenter Police an, wo man uns schon zum Soundcheck erwartete. Nach dem Soundcheck gingen wir zum etwas verspäteten Mittagessen, wo wir mit hausgemachtem Essen und Trinken verwöhnt wurden. Wir können bestätigen, dass die Angestellten dort extrem freundlich waren.
Nach dem Essen hatten wir noch eine Stunde um uns auf das Konzert, das um 21ooUhr beginnen sollte, vorzubereiten. Unsere Vorband,LEAF FAT, heizte dem Publikum schon kräftig ein. Es war ziemlich heiss in der Halle und wir mussten uns passend kleiden, denn nun betraten wir die Bühne um zusammen mit unseren Gästen zwei Stunden reinsten Rock'n'Roll zu zelebrieren.
Wir fühlten uns ausgesprochen wohl auf der Bühne, was dafür sorgte, dass wir uns nach dem Konzert zwei Stunden Zeit für unsere Fans nahmen. Diesmal kamen wir um 4oo Uhr morgens ins Bett, von daher war die Sonntagsruhe mehr als willkommen.
Wir freuen uns schon auf die nächsten Konzerte, wo die Party auch wieder an erster Stelle stehen wird. Wir erwarten euch dort. Seid Teil dieses Rock'n'Rolls. Wir sehen uns!
