March 7th 2019
Two photos from my Paradiso collection were displayed for the first time on this date.
One of the photos, titled #10 is of Peter Hook and familiar to many since the auction of Hooky's 'Joy Division Signature Collection'. In this auction, it was a double-portrait of him from 1980 and 2011, that i made in 2012 as a present. It was given to him after the concert in Utrecht of the '10th Anniversary Summer Darkness' on july 29th 2012. In the background, Stephen Morris is visible too, sitting behind his drumkit.
The second photo, titled #11 is of Ian Curtis and is a photo taken during the first set of the concert. The power and emotion of his performance is quite visible in this image. In the background, Bernard Sumner is visible too, playing guitar left hand stage.
You can also find both photos on the home page, by scrolling down.
And like all my other photos (not only Joy Division but from many New Wave / Post-Punk bands) are for sale on ebay.

The Amsterdam venue Paradiso, opened its doors on March 30 1968. To celebrate its 50th birthday, the Paradiso website has a section about many of their programs. From now on, this list will grow.
You can scroll through this list and read about a variety of gigs.

Yes, in Dutch.
March 31st 2018
In 2018, Paradiso celebrates its 50th birthday. From the long-list of more than 25000 programs, Hester Carvalho, writer of the book ‘Paradiso 50 jaar in 50 legendarische concerten’, selected 50 memorial gigs to highlight the music history of the venue. Of course different genres have been selected to satisfy all kinds of visitors and readers.
For each gig, five eyewitnesses were found to recollect that night. Marc Tilli was asked about two shows, obviously Joy Division on January 11 1980 and the other one, The Rolling Stones on May 27th 1995.
For the Joy Division gig, the famous Lex van Rossen photo was selected, on which Ian Curtis is wearing The Sound And The Fury t-shirt. The book is written in Dutch only.

release of latest book by Peter Hook ’Substance’ a recollection of his years in the legendary band New Order.
This book features one of the photos i took December 13th 1980, at the band’s 9th gig ever, in Rotterdam Hal 4. This venue was a renovated hall at a water purification plant. A gig made possible by the efforts of Mike Pickering, who then lived in Rotterdam and soon relocated to Manchester to DJ at the new club The Haçienda as formed his bands Quando Quango and M-People.
This gig was the 2nd appearance of Gillian Gilbert and showed an emotional and young band working hard through a selection of brand new songs. This struggling band would soon conquer the world with their massive hits and iconic albums.
