Si preannuncia il pienone, quindi con il soldato Pvt Rehab di SNAFU riteniamo opportuno andare al Magnolia presto per evitare fila all’ingresso e scambiare qualche chiacchiera in tranquillità.
I pezzi scelti per la scaletta sono praticamente i super-classici della band come One Way Or Another, Call Me, Maria, Atomic, Dreaming, ecc.., qualche pezzo nuovo (Debbie perdonami ma sono orribili ) più la classica cover dei Nerves di Hanging on The Telephone e una inaspettata dei Beastie Boys di (You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party).
In generale è stato un concerto molto divertente, la band era in ottima forma e la bella Debbie riesce a scaldare gli animi e gli ormoni nonostante non sia più così giovane. Nonostante qualche battuta a vuoto, nel complesso concerto promosso a pieni voti.
I won’t say who they are and what they represented, aswell I’ll avoid trivial comments about how much Debbie Harry is still fucking sexy close to be 70 years. Ok, I feel like those obsessed for weird youporn’s categories such as milf or mature but who was at the concert last night… I am sure will agree with me.
It should be a sold-out show, so with the soldier Pvt Rehab from SNAFU we decide to go to the venue early… to avoid queue at the entrance and to talk in peace.
Once inside, it’s beautiful to see so many generations: young kids, but especially many many over 50 (I’m pretty sure the guy at my side for the whole concert was at least 60 ..) that probably still have Penthouse from February ’80 at their home.
Opening-act was by the Carnabys. I don’t like indie rock or whatever they play … I don’t want to be rude, but I didn’t like them at all. No words for the jacket of the singer. Even my father wouldn’t put such a bad one. However, I noticed that someone in the frist rows loved this english guys. Best for them.
The 10:25 pm is the long-awaited moment, then thousand mobiles were high in the sky and all 6 musicians made the entrance… of course all the flashes were directed to Debbie Harry, but I’m not ashamed to say that my eyes were also for Elvis Ramone or if you prefer Clem Burke. Ok, he played only two shows with the Ramones .. but he’s always a Ramone and he also weared a CBGB T-shirt just to make it clear their roots.
The songs chosen for the setlist are more or less the classics like One Way Or Another, Call Me, Maria, Atomic, Dreaming, etc. .., some new songs (Debbie…forgive me… they are horrible), they also covered Hanging on the Telephone of the Nerves and unexpectedly the Beastie Boys with (You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (to Party). Summin’ up, it was a very enjoyable concert, the band was in good conditions and the lovely Debbie still know how to warm the hearts and hormones although she’s not so young. Even in some moments they looked like tired and not in great shape, it was a pleasant gig.
