Show #2263 played by the Ramones. This was supposed to be the last show ever. Now: OneTwoThreeFour lets you re-live this night, concert and band!
OneTwoThreeFour manages to catch the spirit, energy and fast-paced, non-stop punk music of the original Ramones in their show. With only a few moments of rest, they deliver the same attitude as was intended and presented by the Ramones during their 22-year reign.
During the first run of shows in the first half of 2018, the band played headline shows in venues such as The Waterhole Amsterdam, Blue Collar Theater Eindhoven, Muziekcafé Helmond, Dynamo Eindhoven and Oefenbunker Landgraaf and the band even played a small tour in Germany. During the second half of 2019, the band is planning a new tour throughout The Netherlands, Germany and Belgium playing not only the full ‘We’re Outta Here’ set, but extends this set with even more Ramones hits. Expect classics such as ‘Blitzkrieg Bop’, ‘Sheena Is A Punk Rocker’ and ‘I Wanna Be Sedated’, but also lesser-known songs as ‘Bonze Goes To Bitburg’, ‘Love Kills’ and ‘Any Way You Want It’. All of this in record speed of course.
OneTwoThreeFour (est. 2017) brings you the last show ever played by the Ramones from top to bottom. 32 songs, just over an hour pure Punk Rock mayhem. Where other Ramones tribute bands mostly try to look like the originals, and play the most well-known songs, OneTwoThreeFour focuses on the music and sound, and plays the last show in its entirety, sometimes even including guest musicians!
The idea to play the Ramones came to the band’s founding member Stein van den Akker (bass, vocals) a few years back, but never really got on the road. Early 2017, the band made an effort to get this show going and started rehearsing. Initially the band had 3 members, Julien van Haasteren (vocals) and Ludo Schlechtriem (drums) and Stein, and halfway through 2017, they got support from Guitarist Marc van Eijkhout.
Being too young to have attended the last show themselves, they took the liberty to form this band. All of the band members are lifelong fans of the Ramones and feel like this is the ultimate tribute to be paid to these brilliant musicians.
