Frankfurt reviews

THE DRUMMER WEARING THE NUMBER 9 GALAXY FAN JERSEY WAS GALACTIC SURPRISE IN THE SHANIA TWAIN CONCERT

Shania Twain delivered yesterday a sensational concert in the Frankfurt festival hall. Amongst the thousands fans was also Galaxy player MIKE BARR, wearing the number 7, who is for years an enormous fan of the Country and Pop Queen. The fan co-ordinators Frankfurt Galaxy, Thomas and Andreas, had carried him forward short hand to the concert. But when the musicians of Shania Twain came on the stage, all were astonished equally. Reason: JD Blair, who the drummer of the superstar from Canada appeared in a brand-new fan jersey with the number 9, which one can buy so far only in the Galaxy Fanshop and in the Onlineshop. When the drummer saw, that there is a is a Galaxy player among the Shania Twain fans in the festival hall, he organized short hand of meeting backstage. There told JD Blair, who had bought his jersey on the same day in the Fanshop in the quake in the police headquarters, because he found it so crazy... then used he the chance and the jersey left itself still from the Galaxy player MIKE BARR to mark. Then a few photos were shot and an anyway fantastic evening still became an unforgettable experience for all. This evening Shania Twain performes again in the festival hall, time will tell whether the drummer will come up with something galactic again.

So far the newspapers' reviews about the Frankfurt concert are mild...they do like the music and the effort, including the musicians...but the critics do not like the autographs signing, the confetti and the perfect organization of the concert... One of them calls the concert a "Pop-Operette"...and Shania's career a soap.. tja....they do not know what they are missing..
Funny that they acknowledge how the fans were happy during and after the concert..

The first two reviews are pretty good, I try to translate them later.
The third one worth not much, this idiot says how stupid that Shania forgot her lyrics , yeah "MR perfect never makes mistakes"

Apparently, Shania forgot the beginning of That Don't Impress Me Much, and had to stop the band. So they started again.
Funny.
When she comes down from TWIM and TDIMM starts its one of the peaks of the show, too bad she missed it....

These things make a concert worthwile and even more fantastic and personal..... I like it Shania (or other artists) makes a little mistake....shows they're only human and that it could happen to everyone.... Love it!

The good mood rocker from the next door

Shania Twain makes the Frankfurt festival hall dance. A megastar for touching

Michael Bermeitinger


A rock Diva with voice and radiating presence. Shania Twain in Frankfurt. Foto: Josef Knorr

The woman has power. And constantly good mood - sticking on good mood. But it is not only the radiating smile on the beautiful face of Shania Twain, it is her whole being (kind). As she dances, the fans enmeshed and the whole arena embracing her. Rehearsaled and well-thought? Possible, but who cares. And even if: the 38 year Canadian works genuinely, brings her show more authentically to here. Shania - the good mood rocker from next door.
She belongs to the mega sellers in the rock biz, over 40 million sold CDs in only five years paved her rout way upward. Times pure rock, then classical Pop ballad, times with more, times with less country priming - it can vary. The same with her concerts. In Chicago in the Farmer-land with howling Country playing the violin, at the Superbowl 2002 as Diva with large orchestra, and in Frankfurt ones gab's now the rocker Shania Twain - occasionally even for touching. The show is unusually open for a star of their caliber. The oval stage stands in the middle of the hall, without large barriers and spaces, only a few file sits all around. Shania fans are not knows as wild crowd. But already at the first beats of "Man I Feel Like A Woman" it jumps on its legs – and the arena stands. Which with the seated through concerts otherwise is an exception. In addition, fast afterwards the fired "UP!" leaves no chance to sea down.
Shania was not aloud, supported by an 8 member band, less well working sound system, which constantly raves around the stage. Whereby the strong, but badly merged guitars and key board carpet bury her voice again and again under itself. That clouds occasionally the fun, but bad mood never arises from the 10000 people. Shania Twain hammers hit after hit in the arena: "Don't Stupid", "Forever", the unorthodox "Ka-Ching" and the impudent woman power without brakes of "That Don't Impress ME" or "I'm Gonna Getcha". With the calm "Women in ME" she sits then on the interior tier in the middle of the public and plays, only accompanied by a acoustic guitar, the whole range of their voice heard. Unfortunately -beside the only calm sequence, the lady remains likes it rather heartfelt rocker. And hops and dances merrily over the stage, not presenting herself differently or better than the fans before her, to whom she constantly gives autographs or hand gladding. Whether now genuinely or only as a perfectly produced show - in the end it interests none. Not even that the whole straight fun took one hour and forty minutes.

I think it's a very good review, and since this is a well known newspaper, others also printed/posted the same review.

I love it how JD also wears the sports jerseys! He even wore the right one in Helsinki

Those are the issues that have been on the reviews here too.
Funnily, I don't understand what's wrong with the practised manouvres? I mean they are good to look at, and entertaining... what do they want? Everyone standing in one place, and if moving around, bumping into each other?
I'll take the spectacular practised one any day over that!

And yes, all reviewers have noticed how entertaining the concerts are for the fans
I guess they just need to find something to critizise from it, after all, they are called critics

Yeah, afterall Shania does the concerts for us, not for the critics, and we LOVE it!

In the latest Billboard there is an article about the music critics with the biggest influence (better number of readers of their newspapers) and they saying, they are forming the taste of the masses. With some crying that with te internet and the amazing number of outlets their influence is less now.

But there is actually one who admits, no critics stop anyone buying a cd (of Spears or Creed for example) or going to a concert, contrary the much bigger influence of the movie critics.
