If nothing changes, I'm going the AC/DC and Metallica concert, here in Barcelona. Metallica plays with Slipknot and Lamb of God, but I'm not going to see these both... I'm interested only in Metallica  :shifty:

AC/DC in Barcelona
« Reply #184 on: June 14, 2009, 06:36:29 pm »
Well, as I promised, here are some pictures from the AC/DC in Barcelona concert. The camera is the compact one, so don't look at the technique, but to the subject  :insane:


Here you can see a little train in the stage:




The train with... with... oh, well, with Rose  :insane:




The band, the train and some fists  :shifty:




You can imagine who he is, although he is burnt (because of light, not really burnt). And yes, he wears only a kind of shorts:





You can see that a lot of people was there... in front of us! But behind us we had even more people  :whistle:





It's going to end, and some fireworks are great for the audience... don't you think so?





People says good bye!!!





And two bonus images. It's not AC/DC, of course, but a concert I was in yesterday night. It's not metal, but... perhaps Markus can guess who are they  :fish:

Wow, Luth,

what a crowd! Hope you had as much fun as it seems. Thanks for the great pics! And yes, I understand the bonus pics. :ninja:

Just came home from a concert, too... review following soon.

Cheers!

Hi folks,

I just came home from the final concert of the Handel Festival.

The concert was open air, and there was a short and light rain shower before the show. It ended right on time, and the rest of the evening remained dry.

It was a great concert, really. Lots of Händel, very well played by the festival orchestra of the Staatskapelle Halle, several choirs (with 300 singers altogether) and mezzosoprano Jennifer Larmore from the USA.

Yes, there were  some minor flaws: Cellphone-radiation made an audible disturbance in the sound system. The setli..., I mean the programme was in the wrong order so I had a little trouble with naming each piece. I disliked the moderator who kept talking of a journey of Handel, the European, without making clear how this concept is reflected in the programme. And I didn't like the way they rushed through "La Rejouissance" as a march.

There was a flaw of mine as well: I mistook the Concerto D-Dur HWV 335a for a variation over the ouverture of "Music For the Royal Fireworks". My bad. :lol3: Now I need to get a recording of that concerto and do some research about it - I can't believe that this similarity is concidental.

But apart from that it was fantastic. Clouds were processing above us in just the right pace for a menuet. The soloist was an amazing sigh..., I mean, singer. Her "Ombra Mai Fu" was tender, emotional, but nowhere near kitsch. Her "Where Shall I Fly" was dramatic. In "Dopo Notte, Atra e Funesta" she was almost bursting with joyful energy, often sounding like giggling and laughing. All in all she had a great presence and was reflecting the emotions of the music in her looks and gestures as well. The "Halleluja" was simply brillant; I can hardly see how it could have sounded better. And the "Music For the Royal Fireworks" - apart from the crime mentioned above - was brillant, too. So were the fireworks that went with it - a bit short perhaps, as there were fireworks only during the ouverture and the final - but really amazing, with very beautiful and astounding effects.

So it was a wonderful evening, spent with my dad, btw. And now I'm off to bed!

Cheers!

Markus

Hmmm, I think I've heard Jennifer Larmore already somewhere...  :wacko:
But then again, who does.

Hey Markus!

Jennifer Larmore has a website - maybe you should post your comments in her guest book, I'm sure she'd be delighted to read such an excellent review!  Sounds like a great event, glad to hear you enjoyed it.  :)

Excellent!   :biggrin:

I thought your comments here in NTSMS were so positive, it seemed to me like they absolutely had to be shared.  I'm sure the excellent review will make her smile and remember Halle very fondly.  :)

Nice pics Luthy! ... Man, too bad that I missed that show here in Madrid, but it was near impossible to have tickets without paying 53486431 €.

Oh! and Markus, I agree with the Zombie one. What a nice piece of review! One of the best ever writen in this forum.

I know, Loke. But you can use a service like photobucket.com to upload the pics and then post them here.

Cheers!

Very soon you'll enjoy the Metallica review (and Slipknot too, although I only was there to wait until Metallica appeared. Not my cup of tea  :insane: ).

I can say, by the moment, that....  :yeha: :yeha: :yeha: :fireevil: :w00t_jump: :wicking:

^^ ...that night was awesome!!

Mindless Torture were a local death metal band, only caught their last song, nothing special to my tastes - don't think I missed much.
Warbringer had great energy, classic old-skool thrash, decent performance (better than their studio recordings, I thought)
Onslaught were like a...  a... er...  an... ONSLAUGHT!!  A pure thrash rush, a perfect appetiser for the main course.. 'Killing Peace' really got me fired up, I love that track (now playing it again!) ..great to see these UK thrash-greats on such excellent form...
Testament were just f**king TestAmenT:ninja:

...Which means skull-crushingly superb as always, Skolnick is a guitar legend, Eric Peterson is a riff-master thrash God and Chuck Billy is just an unstoppable huge force of thrash power. Bostaph solid as ever.  I love how these guys are SO heavy, but retain melody.  Faves were 'Over The Wall', 'Disciples Of The Watch' (OBEEEEEEEEYYYYYYY!!!!!!), 'More Than Meets The Eye' and the colossal coupling of 'D.N.R.' and '3 Days Of Darkness' (great to see the original line-up doing non-skolnick era material).

All in all a fantastic evening, great line up...   :thumbup: :evil2:


Oh yeah and a great sound quality made up for the piss-poor sound they got at the Priest gig (see above somewhere)  :thumbup:
