Hamburg:Shania Twain: The nice Rocker with the good mood Show

Shania Twain: The nice Rocker with the good mood Show Hamburg (dpa) - Shania Twain became in the 90's the star as emancipated feminist Rock Diva. She rose to the superstardom in country, here contrary that created buzz recently with soft-rinsed Ballads like "Forever and For Always". The difference is so extreme that one expects from her Live appearances an answer, who or which side of the 38 year old Canadian real face is. The prelude concert of her Germany tour in Hamburg showed: Shania Twain is nevertheless a Rocker. But a nice, always radiating smiling Country Rocker. Shania Twain is someone, who in the middle was singing tickets or touched stretched hands of the fans. Who rose in the concert donations for children and invites the public merrily hopping [???] Twain's volume is perfect a good mood factory. The nine musicians radiate around the stage, play with the fans and spread sense of happiness in a charm attack to which no Griesgram[?] can resist. And it works. In the hall shoulder at shoulder spectator between 20 and 60, dances and the faces relaxed and happy. Whether cordialness and good mood on the stage are now genuine or played, is in the long run no matter, if one will umworben [???] so dear and engaged. The Show is much closer in music at the old rockin times than yo the new singles. Because of the many guitars on the stage also the ballads sounds more knackin. Three dancing violonists provide for a breath of Country music, with which Shania Twain celebrated once first successes. High points are the fast hits "That Don't Impress ME Much", "Man! I Feel Like A Woman!", "Ka-Ching!" and "I'm Gonna Getcha Good". Lift-off again and again fireworks. For a song Twain invited a girl from the hall to singing on the stage. Later turns out: the girl comes from California. It laughs in the hall, someone calls "unit deformation", the surprised Twain is jokeful over-on-board ends in such a way that one does not know no more, whether it is genuine. The complex Show is arranged unusually open. The stage is a landing directly in the center of the enormous hall, open after all sides. For a song Shania Twain emerges suddenly on the grandstand. Fans are before-let direct for a few minutes again and again to the stage. Democracy gives it also for the volume: The musicians get a microphone pressed into the hand and may introduce itself and with the public applausing. At the end of the two hours Twain inspires that Hamburg public, when she appears to the addition in a HSV leotard. The striking mixture from Rock, Pop and Country might have risen from Twains marriage with the music producer Robert John Lange, who set once for not at all soft of volume such as AC/DC or Def Leppard behind the automatic controllers. They write her songs together. The life of the singer was not so easy also, as it would let her sunny image assume. When she was 21 years old, her parents died with a car accident, and them had to provide for her four younger brothers. Already as a child she rose frequently around clock at night, in order to sing in various clubs - because of their age she was allowed only on the stage, when no more alcohol was sold. For harmony and security Shania Twain seems to long herself also privately: If are not on route, the pair with a small son lives withdrawn in Switzerland.

Shania Twain: Die nette Rockerin mit der Gute-Laune-Show





Hamburg (dpa) - Shania Twain wurde in den 90er Jahren zum Star als emanzipierte feministische Rock-Diva. Den Sprung zum Super-Star hier zu Lande schaffte sie dagegen jüngst mit weichgespülten Balladen wie «Forever And For Always».
Der Unterschied ist so extrem, dass man sich von ihren Live-Auftritten eine Antwort erhofft, wer oder was die 38-jährige Kanadierin denn nun wirklich ist. Das Auftaktkonzert ihrer Deutschlandtournee in Hamburg zeigte: Shania Twain ist doch eine Rockerin. Aber eine nette, immer strahlend lächelnde Country-Rockerin. Shania Twain ist jemand, der mitten im Singen Eintrittskarten von der Bühne signiert oder ausgestreckte Hände der Fans abklatscht, im Konzert zu Spenden für Kinder aufruft und dem Publikum wie ein Teenager fröhlich hüpfend zuwinkt.
Twains Band ist eine perfekte Gute-Laune-Fabrik. Die neun Musiker strahlen um die Wette, spielen mit den Fans und verbreiten Frohsinn in einer Charme-Offensive, der kein Griesgram widerstehen kann. Und es wirkt. Im Saal tanzen Schulter an Schulter Zuschauer zwischen 20 und 60, die Gesichter entspannt und fröhlich. Ob Herzlichkeit und gute Laune auf der Bühne nun echt oder gespielt sind, ist letztlich egal, wenn man so lieb und engagiert umworben wird.
Musikalisch ist die Show viel näher an den alten rockigen Zeiten als an den neuen Singles. Dank der vielen Gitarren auf der Bühne klingen auch die Balladen knackiger. Drei tanzende Geiger sorgen für einen Hauch von Country-Musik, mit der Shania Twain einst die ersten Erfolge feierte. Höhepunkte sind die schnellen Hits «That Don´t Impress Me Much», «Man! I Feel Like A Woman!», «Ka-Ching!» und «I´m Gonna Getcha Good». Immer wieder gehen Feuerwerke hoch.
Für einen Song holt sich Twain ein Mädchen aus dem Saal zum Mitsingen auf die Bühne. Später stellt sich heraus: das Mädchen kommt aus Kalifornien. Lachen im Saal, jemand ruft scherzhaft «Schiebung», die Überraschung von Twain ist so überbordend, dass man nicht mehr weiß, ob sie echt ist.
Die aufwendige Show ist ungewöhnlich offen gestaltet. Die Bühne ist ein Podest direkt in der Mitte des riesigen Saals, offen nach allen Seiten. Für einen Song taucht Shania Twain plötzlich auf der Tribüne auf. Immer wieder werden Fans für ein paar Minuten direkt zur Bühne vorgelassen. Demokratie gibt es auch für die Band: Die Musiker bekommen ein Mikrofon in die Hand gedrückt und dürfen sich selbst vorstellen und mit dem Publikum blödeln. Am Ende der zwei Stunden begeistert Twain das Hamburger Publikum, als sie zur Zugabe in einem HSV-Trikot erscheint.
Die knallige Mischung aus Rock, Pop und Country dürfte Twains Ehe mit dem Musikproduzenten Robert John Lange entsprungen sein, der einst für überhaupt nicht weiche Bands wie AC/DC oder Def Leppard hinter den Reglern saß. Die Songs schreiben sie zusammen. Das Leben der Sängerin war auch nicht so leicht, wie es ihr sonniges Image vermuten ließe.
Als sie 21 Jahre alt war, starben ihre Eltern bei einem Autounfall, und sie musste für ihre vier jüngeren Brüder sorgen. Schon als Kind stand sie häufig um ein Uhr nachts auf, um in diversen Clubs zu singen - wegen ihres Alters durfte sie erst auf die Bühne, als kein Alkohol mehr verkauft wurde. Nach Harmonie und Geborgenheit scheint sich Shania Twain auch privat zu sehnen: Wenn sie nicht auf Tour ist, lebt das Paar mit einem kleinen Sohn zurückgezogen in der Schweiz.

Thought out high polish concert

- the cool Canadian Shania Twain starts its Germany route Hamburg in Hamburg (packed to the roof). The Bestuhlung of the interior could itself have saved the organizers. Already after few clocks the 13,000 spectators in the sold off Color LINE arena jump up, vibrate themselves in the clock of the music, whip in the rhythm, groelen also. With a umjubelten concert in Hamburg the Canadian hit queen Shania Twain on Saturday evening began her Germany route. The Grammy winner starts with two good hits the evening and provides so from the beginning for omitted tendency: "Man! I Feel Like A Woman!", a hit of her multiple platinum album "Come on Over" (1999), and the new single "UP" set the quantity in motion. Garniert one aims the dragging along music with interspersed fireworks effects. 20 Songs get the fans of the beautiful musician in the Hanseatic city to hear, among them the Party kracker "Ka-Ching!", "That Don't Impress ME Much", "I'm Gonna Getcha Good" and the ballads "Forever and For Always" and "When You Kiss ME". The multicolored mixture from Pop, Country and Rock, from in-usual melodies and dancable rhythms, which made Twains Songs in the past months also the usually-played radio hits, functions also on the stage excellently. And a kind Déjà vu-feeling creeps nevertheless after half of the concert - too much resemble each other in the long term melodies, rhythms and arrangements of most Songs. And also the pyrotechnic effects, which illuminate the stage again and again, do not surprise someone anymore. The approximately 100-minute Show is just as perfectly styled as the 38 years old musician. Twain, which is to be admired in this evening in three different exactly co-ordinated Outfits, offers a thought out high polish concert to its fans. Everything is arranged, no effect is omitted, will leave nothing to the coincidence accurately. Over the stage hangs an enormous star shaped lighting system, which sets the Protagonistin of the evening always into the right light. The large oval stage is placed in the center of the arena and Twain is nearly nonstop in the circle on the way, so that as much as possible the faithful fans on close contact with its star can go. And there Twain sing, touches and signs autographs simultaneous, makes in this evening many humans happy. The north American secures herself additional sympathies, when she comes for the additions in a far HSV fan leotard over the Jeans on the stage. Public near the Canadean appears also, when she exactly gets a girl in the center of the concert from the quantity on the stage and turns together with it its rounds over the oval. Also a donation collection for a child aid project builds the 38-years old into the show and recompences a donating fan family with a common Polaroidfoto on the stage. And in order to make the illusion of a family celebration perfect, the musicians the nine-piece band, of whom some looks like a Comicfigur, dance omitted at the edge of stage like the small guests on a child birthday. After more than one hour Twain succeeds then with "The Woman in ME (Needs The one in You)" then nevertheless still again to surprise the public. The song begins with a tender Keyboard Intro, to which gradually play the violin themselves associate, before the sound of an acoustic guitar takes over the guidance. The headlights are directed suddenly toward rank in the arena: Twain sits with a guitarist on a backrest in the middle in the public and gives to the fans with a haunting ballade the high point of the evening. Also to the grand final there is again an Aha effect. On Shania Twain rains it with the ending song "Rock This Country" spark of the cover, on the public falls a sea from white and lila chad as on the freshly baked millionaires with the RTL Show "who becomes millionaire?". Fulminantes fireworks accompany the last clocks - a magnificent conclusion for a successful party.

http://de.news.yahoo.com/040229/12/3wo43.html

At the end they interviewed some of the audience and all of them were really happy: the last person a 35 year old guy says that they have been knowing her music for a while..but they know now that Shania iLIVE is simply a world class artist...
