Golden Earring’s last performance ever was held at the Rotterdam Ahoy on 16th November 2019. By accident, visual director Marcel de Vré (who had captured the Golden Earring Five Zero Show at the Amsterdam Ziggodome in 2015) recorded that final performance. He was hired to take care of the video content and live camera shots that would be projected on a big video screen hanging on the back of the stage. Without the band being aware, De Vré recorded the show and archived the complete footage. Luckily, excellent audio and video was available of a tremendous concert, that sadly turned out to be Golden Earring’s final performance - with this historical release as a result. When in February 2021 co-founder George Kooymans had to announce his having to leave the band with immediate effect, due to health issues. Golden Earring decided to break up. With the sad knowledge that the Rotterdam show had been the final performance of Golden Earring, the audio and visual files were unshelved in close cooperation with the band, Marcel de Vré and John Sonneveld - the band’s long time technical assistance and producer. The artwork – based on an idea by Barry Hay – includes a replica of the original concert poster, but also features a collage of photos that fans of Golden Earring submitted during the past year.
The result is the double CD/DVD You Know We Love You! – Live Ahoy 2019, that give Golden Earring (and its fans) a dignified goodbye so well deserved.
