    Did anyone go see him? I was REALLY sick so I had to stay home!

    His entire set almost brought my friends & I to tears.

    I loved it every second of it, and I was seriously in a whoooole different world. And I was completely sober.

    I loved it, I didn't even mind how crowded it was.

    A beautiful, beautiful night.

    It made me realize why I love pussy trance so much in the first place, and why I refuse to jump on the progressive bandwagon.

    kudos to The Guv & Benson & Hedges for this one. I would've actually paid to see this.

    highlight of my night:

    watching 5 HUGE security beat the shit out of some tiny little fucking idiot. Funniest thing EVER.

    It was great night to remember.
    Ferry Corsten rocked the place!
    I could see that people were concentrating to enjoy the music.
    I so enjoyed when he played his own classic 'out of the blue' [​IMG]
    One bad thing was it was overpacked...
    I don't how was upstairs like but there was no room to dance and it was even hard to move around. [​IMG]

    to be honest, i don't even know if it was good or not. i spent the whole bloody night wandering around trying to find somewhere to dance where i wouldn't get hit by flailing limbs. or hair. the overpacking made it SOOO not fun. i swear, this was the worst it's ever been. ugh. i felt like i was in a cattle car. so anyways, i'm sure he was really good. everyone else seemed to think so. shame i didn't get a chance to hear anything. and then i get told that mark played XPANDER just after i left. and i missed it!!!!!

    I thought Ferry was top. I definetaly loved that he spun alot of the recent good trance thats been floating around. He always plays his old anthems but come on this is Ferry and that why you went to see him in the first place. Oh ya, it great to finally meet you Cheer Bear. I hope you had great time! Sober? WOW!

    Manda, are u listening to Liam Kennedy?

    Why am I not surprised [​IMG] I wasn't there so I don't know what the guy did but the Guv. security are THE worst in T.O. I did see Ferry Corsten there the last time he was @ The Guv. and I had a wicked time.

    1. The line-up for Guvernment was long...
    2. Waited in the VIP line for an hour.
    3. Finally I got in, the club was rammed with people... which reminded me why I never go there.
    4. No space to dance anywhere, because of the amount of people laying on the floor completely fucked on drugs.
    5. There were too many Gino's with terrible attitude, where they were pushing everyone.
    6. Did I mention there was no space to even breathe?
    7. The only highlight of the night was Ferry Costen, which played a beautiful set (only got to hear an hour of it), he was the only reason (that and the digital sound at the club) that I went there in the first place.
    8. I left the place at 2:30, I couldn't take it anymore.

    I will have the priviledge to see Ferry Costen at Sensations this year, I will be in Amsterdam then.

    One of the best trance sets I have heard in a while. Some will call it cheezy, but it was nice to hear a set in which you know 75% of the tracks by name. Never a dull moment. I debated between going to this or Deep Dish in Waterloo and am SO glad I picked the Guv. Sure there wree lots of TBK at Deep Dish, but hell, you can see those people every weekend anyways. [​IMG]

    Only disappointment was not hearing "Flight 643" at all, but instead hearing "Rapture" as Corsten's closing song. Boo to that. Especially since Mark Oliver played it earlier in the night, just before Corsten went on.

    Just a few comments about your complaints ...

    1. The line-up for Guvernment was long...

    You should expect it for an event this big. Go early.

    2. Waited in the VIP line for an hour.

    Not sure when you went, but I waited in the same line for about 10 minutes. It moved really quickly for me at around midnight.

    3. Finally I got in, the club was rammed with people... which reminded me why I never go there.

    It usually is busy when a guest DJ is there.

    4. No space to dance anywhere, because of the amount of people laying on the floor completely fucked on drugs.

    During peak times, space in some area is limited. But I never once saw anyone actually laying on the floor the whole night.

    6. Did I mention there was no space to even breathe?

    You should come to expect this though when an event such as this is held with such a widely known headlining DJ.

    7. The only highlight of the night was Ferry Costen, which played a beautiful set (only got to hear an hour of it), he was the only reason (that and the digital sound at the club) that I went there in the first place.

    Agreed. You should have stayed ... at 3am, lots of people started to leave and there was plenty of room to dance.

    Anyways, my main point was you just have to accept that a night like that will be busy. Just put up with it for a bit and your night will get better as it goes along. [​IMG]

    I'm definitely in the minority on this one ... but I actually PREFER a ram-packed club for big trance events. It also makes for better acoustics. [​IMG]

    Nonetheless, Ferry Corsten did not disappoint. I wasn't really surprised by his track selection, but the man just has a knack for rockin' his audience! I think trance has a chance of making a little come-back with this "nu-style" stuff.

    I'm looking forward to more of the same courtesy of Scott Bond on Feb 23rd. Probably won't be as crowded though. [​IMG]

    It was nice meeting you too hun.

    I saw some guy being led to the back office by like 5 security guards ... kind of a short guy, It was at the end of Ferry's set, about 5am. I wonder if it was the same guy? I am guessing he was caught selling drugs. But when I see stuff like that, it totally downs my mood. I know security is just doing their job, but it sucks to have to watch them in action, cuz it usually means something bad happened.

    But the bigger question I had was: "Why the hell did I not see you in there?". Strange.

    Definately an awesome nite.
    Yea the crowd was pOOpy and I don't think I even saw the dancefloor till 5am or so.
    Too many old Asian crackheads and Ginos for sure.
    Go early?? lol!
    I spent almost an hour just to park and then get in (and I was on guest list!) [​IMG]
    Boo to GUV and their obvious discount of their own headcount/capacity. > [​IMG]
    There are a lot of pissed ppl out there about this problem.
    I've been to GUV before and this was even packed TOO much; defineately more than normal.
    Dispite the shit bouncer attitude and lack of space, Ferry played an awesome set; even if it was a little jumbled.
    Any fan of Corsten would have been able to label 90% of the stuff he played for sure.
    Let's just hope that GUV cleans up their act before someone else does...

    every fucking day, a few idiots say that guv sucks, which is fine

    but lo and behold, a week later, they go back and complain again

    just stay the fuck away, maybe if you stayed home there would have been more room

    go find somewhere you like, and killabitch, never once has anyone sat on the floor and gotten away with it

    stop bullshitting

    and for such a tough name, you couldnt handle a few people pushing

    another internet loser

    ps. VIP is always swift, maybe they didnt want your raver bitch fdco dress attitude

    never had i or any of my friends had to wait

  19. Fir3start3r

    Fir3start3r TRIBE Member

    Why? Where you one of the crackheads wandering around? Hey man, I didn't realize you were the authority on behalf of the GUV.
    I'm simply saying if the GUV would actually follow entertainment bylaws regarding overcrowding and headcount.
    I was absolutely obvious they were overcrowded (not that I'm surprised) but it just seems a little more than usual. A lot of people I've talked to said the same thing.
    I'm not the only one that feels this way.
    Everyone I've talked to would have gladly paid $10-15 bucks more to keep out the rif-raf and to be with people that really wanted to be there.
    I was there because I never seen him live and I like his stuff.
    Just because I wasn't high/drunk/crackedout/smacked/shitfaced doesn't mean I shouldn't expect a good time.
    I did have a good time; only because it's my own fault if I don't. I'm expressing my dissappointment as much as the next guy regarding capacity limits; that's all. (Believe me there's lots that are pissed with the crowding).
    Trying to read between the lines by saying something like, "Then don't go" is just an easy scapegoat suggestion to a situation that can be changed (and should be).

    I'm just shocked that someone with such an alias would have this kind of attitude.
    It's an oxymoron.

    It had been awhile since ive visited ye olde Guvernment nightclub...so i was looking foward to it, and also kind of leery of the serious crowding that was going to go down once inside...and boy was I right.

    It was just JAMMED! Now im all about having a nice big crowd at any event..it makes it that much better. But when it impedes on my freedom to dance (as opposed to bopping up and down while having elbows thrown at my face, neck, stomach..you name it), thats when it bothers me. It seems to me that some characters dont know what the word "courtesy" is...the lastthing i want to do is get confrontational, or even scrap with some dood when im trying to enjoy some Ferry Corsten...but besides that uglyness..the music was fantastic!

    Ferry rocked the house big time! Playing a few of the well known tracks, and a few ones i hadnt heard before. My only complaint on his set was that the set had no real flow to it...but thats just a minor thing, and really had no serious impact on the set as a whole.

    Next stop..Armin in April. I just hope it isnt as packed.
