    The popularity of a movement is often used to justify belief in the claims of that movement. But how popular is it exactly?

    How big was that audience [At Richard Gage's presentation, May 13th, 2018 in Utrecht, The Netherlands] , anyway? I just got back from a trip out East. We were at the WTC Memorial and stopped by Shanksville. They were both awe inspiring and the mood was very reverent at both. What I did not see were any signs of the Truther crowd in any way. I was glad to not see anyone with pamphlets or signs, but I have to say, just a little bit disappointed. I have to admit, I wanted to see the show first hand. I am wondering how many people still pay to see these guys talk.

    There's possibly 100 to 200 people in front of the photographer there, (I added the photo to your post), and her with George van Houts

    Older audience, judging by the hair. More female than male

    Georges van Hout has been touring with this show in theatres in the Netherlands in 2017 and 2018. In total, he did about 65 shows. A radio documentary has been made about Van Houts in which also his critics are interviewed (I was one of them). In this documentary, Van Houts tells that his shows were not that well visited (if you compare to other recent shows of his), about one hundred people per evening.
    The video of the show which can be seen on Youtube was one of the last performances and part of a larger programme (eg. the presentation of Gage), so that's probably why you can see some more people in the audience at that occasion.

    So maybe about 6000 people watched the show live in theatre, but the YouTube-video has been viewed about 85.000 times before they added English subtitles (just a couple of days ago, I believe).
