Clouseau: end of the road?

Described as "the last round", Clouseau have decided to being their annual Antwerp Sportpaleis December concert series to an end. Over the last 10 years this has become a very popular tradition for Belgium’s top band, as hundreds of thousands of fans flocked to see the Wauters brothers do their thing, however there has been less demand for the shows over the last couple of years. When the band suggested they may do another couple of concerts in February 2011, these were subsequently cancelled due to organisational difficulties and limited interest by the public.

In the meantime, the band were accompanied by some big-name special guests this season: Marco Borsato, Natalia, Bart Peeters and Jan Leyers all took to the stage to do a few numbers with the band.

Check out the very impressive set list with all the hits and more!
Part 1:
Hier bij jou
Gek op jou
Dat ze de mooiste is
Meezingmedley:Altijd heb ik je lief / Laat me nu toch niet alleen / Zie me graag /Ik wil vannacht bij je slapen / Passie
Afscheid van een vriend
Ze zit (a capella)
Binnen (with Marco Borsato)
Je hoeft niet naar huis vannacht (Marco Borsato, Koen Wauters backing vocal
En dans
Part 2:
Daar gaat ze
Ik denk aan jou
De perfectie
Leve België
Zij aan zij
Vonken en vuur
De tegenpartij
Intro blazers (with The Heavy Horns)
Ik, jij, hij of zij (with Bart Peeters & Jan Leyers)
Crazy in love (with Natalia, Bart Peeters& Jan Leyers)
Into folk (with Natalia, Bart Peeters & Jan Leyers
Like a mountain (with Natalia, Bart Peeters & Jan Leyers)
Geef het op (with Natalia, Bart Peeters & Jan Leyers

The band feel that it’s now time to ‘take the foot off the pedal’ and have a break for three or four years: more immediately, Koen will again be competing in the Dakar Rally in 2011. The break should give the band some much-needed rest, as they’ve released a series of albums and toured constantly over recent years. And of course they’re not getting any younger, but hey, neither are any of us :)))
