Like a Hurricane

 Kada sam zadnji put  napisala post  posvećen Brajanu Feriju bio  je početak    2011. godine. Tada je trebao  da se održi  koncert u Beogradskoj areni  ali je zbog  bolesti pevača bio odložen.  Konačno juče  20. septembra beogradska  publika je  imala priliku da čuje ovog  vremešnog  srcolomca. Gospodin Feri je u  Beograd  stigao sa dvanaest članova benda   među  kojima su bile dve igračice.  Koncert u  areni bio je zakazan u osam sati  malo je  kasnio, možda 15 minuta. Na moje  iskreno zaprepašćenje u  parteru su bile  postavljene stolice zbog  čega sam se jako  smorila  jer nisam tako  zamišljala  koncert. Ali, šta je tu je i onako  mi nikada  u životu ništa ne ispadne kako  zamišljam,  pravi sam baksuz. Mada treba  uzeti u  obzir da se penzionerski koncert i  očekivao sa obzirom da je prosek ljudi na  koncertu preko 40 godina, skoro su bile

sve tete i čike. Elem, ušla sam u halu  sa mojom omiljenom istoričarkom umetnosti Natašom i pronašle naša sedišta naravno ispred su kao i uvek bili neki visoki i glavati muškarci od kojih obično ne mogu da vidim pola scene. Ali ne bitno, koncert uskoro počinje, svetla se gase, uključuje se video bim na stejdzu izlazi Feri iako vremešan i dalje good looking u crnom odelu sa crnom kravatom i belom košuljom, čovek od stila uvek bio i ostao. Sa strane po dva ili tri prateća vokala u crnim haljinama sa šljokicama šljašte u mraku. Iza njega ceo bend sa saksofoniskinjom a iza njih dve igračice u trikoima koji takođe šljašte u mraku. Počinje uvertira, i za početak I put a spell on You. Feri je bio odličan , njegov vokal i dalje zvuči jako sexy po mom  mišljenju uz Leonarda Cohena najseksipilnij glas u muzičkoj industriji. Bend odlično svira, a na video bimu su spotovi pesama. Posle prve pesme slede Slave to Love moja omiljena i Dont stop the dance moja second favorite. Neeeeeee, ja i Nataša u šoku. Kako se odmah ispucao na početku sa najpopularnijim hitovima nismo bile psihički pripremljene za tako nešto a još smo sedele, potpuno razočarenje iako čovek zvuči odlično. Feri je najavlja hitove neke stare još iz Roxy musica i neke nove sa novog albuma da podsetim da promoviše album Olimpiya koji je izašao krajem 2010. godine. On nije pričao mnogo i ako ne volim pevače koji mnogo smaraju na nastupima možda je falilo malo više pauza između pesama jer je u nekim trenucima izgledalo kao da slušam mix na You tubu. Posle ove tri pesme slede neke starije iz vremena dok je bio član sastava Roxy music između ostalog i pesma koja traje više od 7 minuta Like a Hurricane. Posle od prilike nekih 45 minuta aktivnog pevanja sledela je pauza, pa smo taman odlučile da se maknemo sa stolica i popijemo nešto. Samo što je sledio jedan veliki fail nema pušenja u prostorima arene, Hello!!!!!!!!Hoće da nas ubiju!! Pa šta nam je ostalo sem da pobegnemo u kabinu u wcu i tamo pušimo kao srednjoškolke da nas niko ne uhvati slučajno. Pauza je trajala oko 15 minuta i koncert je nastavljen novim hitom U can dance i starim hitovima Lets stick together i Love is a drug. Za to vreme pomerile smo se napred ka bini, stale sa strane i đuskale. Publika ustaje sa stolica i niko skoro više da nije sedeo i atmosfera konačno dobija pravi šmek kakav njegov koncert treba da ima. Zanimljivo je da je pored nas stajao inspektor Blaža sa njegovom pogubljenom facom, verovatno je razmišljao ove cice u spotu ne valjaju ja bih tu ubacio Pamelu to je ta estetika.  Elem, još malo sam se smorila što nije otpevao novi hit Shameless ni Kiss and Tell  ni Limbo. Ali,  dobro ipak on ima iza sebe neverovatnih 40 godina muzičke karijere i široki dijapazon dobrih pesama. Za kraj je ostavio između ostalog i  Jealous Guy  preradu od Dzona Lenona. Bez obzira što neke stvari nisam tako zamišljala koncert je bio strava i jako mi je drago što sam ga posetila.

Ferry rulezzzzzzzz

Last time I wrote a post dedicated to Bryan Ferry it was beginning of 2011. But concert was canceled because Ferry got sick so event was moved for september. Finally yesterday on 20th September Belgrade audience had the opportunity to hear this  heart breaker. Mr. Ferry arrived in Belgrade with the twelve members of the band among which were two dancers. Concert in the arena was scheduled to eight o clock P.M. but  was bit late and began perhaps 15 minutes later. To my amazement chairs were set up for concert which I found very lame because I didnt imagine that kind of event. But that was nothing new cause in my life nothing turns out as I imagine, I am reallly  bad luck often. Although it should be noted that average person at the concert was over 40, all aunts and fellows.

Anyway, I entered the hall with my favorite art historian, Natasha and found our seats. In front are of course as always tall guys with big heads so I  usually cant  see entire scene. But no matter, the concert is about to start, the lights are switched off, stage includes a video screen Ferry  is  comeing on stage although old  but still looking good in a black suit with black tie and white shirt, a man of style has always been and still is. With the two or three supporting vocalists in a black dress which are  sparkling  in the dark. Behind him is entire  band with lady on sax and behind them two dance girls in tricots also sparkling  in the dark. Intro begins, and for the start he sings I put a spell on you. Ferry was excellent, his vocals still sound very sexy in my opinion the sexiest voice  in the music industry ,together with Leonard Cohen of course. The band played great and the on screen were videos of songs. After the first song followed by my favorite Slave to Love and  my second favorite Dont stop the dance. Noooo, We were in shock. As He  immediately fired my favorite hits at the beginning of concert I wasnt mentally prepared for that and We were still sitting, totally disappointed…But  I may say that the man sounds great. Ferry announces more hits from some old from time of Roxy Music and some new ones from the new album to remind He  promotes Olimpia which was released in late 2010. He did not talk much and even I  dont like many singers who are talking to much,  performance may have lacked a little bit more breaks between songs because at couple of times it feelt I was listening  to a mix on You tube. After these three songs following were from  an earlier time when he was a member of the band Roxy music including song that lasts more than 7 minutes Like a Hurricane. After about 45 minutes of active singing followed the break , so We just decided to run out and drink something. But big fail was no smoking rule , there is no smoking on the premises of  arena, Hello !!!!!!!! Why just dont kill Us ???? So what we have left but to run away in a toalet cabin  and smoke as high school girls so no one  can capture Us. Break lasted about 15 minutes and the concert continued and He sang  the new hit U can dance  and old hits like Let’s stick together  and  Love is a drug. During that time we moved forward towards the stage, stood as side and danced. The audience gets up from  chairs and almost no one was  sitting, and finally felling a real atmosphere and charm of energy from His performance. It is interesting that the inspector Blaža (local popular tv star , famoust by song You are beautiful Pamela) was standing beside us with his funny lost face, probably thinking of girls in the video are not good He  would probably put  Pamela out there , Thats Blazas  aesthetics. Anyway, I was a little pissed  because He didnt sing  new hit Shameless  or  Kiss and Tell  or  Limbo. But what ever, however he has had a remarkable 40 years of musical career and extensive range of good songs. In the end of performance Ferry sung   Jealous Guy  orginaly by John Lennon. No matter what things I expected, concert was awesome and I’m very glad that I have been there.

Ferry rulezzzzzzzz
