Dear (performing) artists and bands. Belgium loves you, even though you may think they don't.

Dear performing artists and bands,

There you are, up on that stage, rocking it out and you find your audience mellowly clapping along and basically being rather quiet.

Chances are you are in Belgium. Are we dispassionate? Do we even want to be there? The answer to that is NO and yes! We didn't brave horrible traffic for nothing. Since we also bought the tickets, that means we really want to come.

Belgians are a special kind of people. Why don't we sing along at the top of our lungs? Because we don't want to disturb you. We're rather listen than risk drowning out your voice, just imagine!

That's just the way we are. Very individualistic, we never want to disrupt or disturb, a bit apprehensive, but overall quite adaptable and friendly. We just feel bad about imposing, being too loud. Sometimes to the point of being a bit awkward.

So yes, we love you, in our own special way. Mostly quiet indeed, but never mistake it for lack of appreciation!
