F#@in great!!! I drove 600 kms to enjoy the gig, and I really did it, Ive never been to a concert with such a moving end Bens voice is so awesome,even better than in a Cd (if it is possible, he, he...) But, only one thing, I missed some more tracks from "Burn2shine" that I really love it (Please Bleed especially), but, anyway, the best moment of my summer thanks BHIC!!!

It was the first time that I attend a concert you, and loved. It was sensational. It could have stayed all night long listening to your music. Your voice and your way of singing are unique. Congratulations to you and the rest of the band. I hope I can attend more concerts and I hope that you come to Portugal more times. Excuse my English is not very good. I am waiting for a response. A big kiss

We were there!! And in the front row, as always, on BHIC concerts. Once again, you were just like we expected: AMAZING! The interaction with us was fantastic. The 8 hours we waited were completely worth it.
But there is something missing...a concert of your own, in a small theatre like the "Coliseu do Porto", Lifeline way. We deserve that.
Thank you for being so great!
