Do you have a hero? It doesn’t need to be a great or famous hero, but perhaps someone who was or is important to you? Then come to the SeniorPride Concert 2018 on Thursday, August 2 at the Nieuwmarkt in Amsterdam. This annual festival for senior GLBT’S, neighbours and interested parties presents “Life’s Concert” in honour of an assertive generation.


Our heroes will be sung praise to on this old square in the middle of the lively city centre of Amsterdam. You can sing along as well!

The supporting programme will consist of dramatic soprano Francis van Broekhuizen, the Flemish “grande dame” Evi de Jean and band, Victoria False and Ashley Knight from the red-light district, our very own Coby van Dam, and drag queen Dora Royale. All with specially selected songs, proud, full of passion, sometimes understated, but all in honour of our heroes.

After the break, singer Sjors van der Panne and his band will give a special concert. Van der Panne is known from the mayor talent show on Dutch television, “The Voice of Holland.” With his exceptional voice and emphatic performance, he first moved the judges, soon followed by the Dutch audiences at large.

He is currently touring the country with the Lennaert Nijgh Tour “Tip van de Sluier.” He will perform especially for the SeniorPride and exclusively sing two duets with the figurehead for the “vrije vrouwen” (emancipated women) as well as the Dutch gay scene as a whole: Astrid Nijgh.

The evening will come to a close with the sparkling swinging girl group BB Bootleg and resident DJ Ronnie Retro. The background choreography is by Raoulala’s Dancers, and
Mario Magic will be your host.

Well-known bartenders from the Amsterdam gay scene welcome you with a drink from 6 p.m. onwards. The proceeds from the bar will go to the GreyPride Foundation fund that is directly used to back events for senior GLBT people. The bar is in the hands of Café the Queen’s Head. During the evening, the fairy-like and historic Restaurant-Café In de Waag will sell the famous Waagburgers.

The SeniorPride Concert takes place on Thursday, August 2, from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. at the Nieuwmarkt in Amsterdam and is in cooperation with Restaurant-Café In de Waag.

The SeniorPride Concert 2018 is made possible by the City of Amsterdam, Stichting Gay Pride Amsterdam, Pride Business Club, several sponsors and volunteers.

Let’s proudly and passionately sing the praise of our heroes!
