Rod Stewart at Sportpaleis Antwerp
Translated by google to English it reads as follows
In a reduced Sportpaleis plezierde Rod Stewart fans
with a hitshow, often got the allure of a song festival.
It was about eight years since Rod Stewart passed again in the country, but mainly it was forty years since its really creative period, the '70s when he was a wild boy with The Faces, an excellent
white-soul singer himself and a star who scored after world wide world wide.
Stewart came to Antwerp as part of a new tour that started in Las
Vegas, and it showed it. White, silver and gold were the colors in the slick decor. Multiple video screens projected old pictures of great albums, the young Rod and his
children. There were balloons at the end, and especially a lot of sing-along hits.
voice turned out he actually lost a bit, especially in the rougher parts Stewart could not and he did not have the energy to give the guitar party high notes. But there are
tricks for: three sexy singers gave soulful background vocals, and during 'Hot Legs' our guy was just some autographed footballs into the crowd sjotten.
The best part was sitting somewhere in the middle, after the break.
All musicians grabbed something acoustic and bite in which the audience warm atmosphere harp and strings sang passionately along with "The first cut is the deepest ',' I do not wanna talk about it"
and "You're in my heart." Vocal Stewart did not have to force yourself, it throbbed like a bus.
In the rougher work it all seemed a bit harder. The engine seemed to light the dance moves may have looked stiff and off the routine dropping.
were happy with old songs like 'You wear it well "and" Maggie May "and even Muddy Waters'" Rollin 'and Tumblin', but in order to bring music have more power than Stewart has.
Bagpipes and kilts
He looked it particularly well preserved, but miracles do not exist. Therefore, he would Jimi Hendrix's 'Angel' might get better his set list.
The bagpipes and kilts who occasionally played a part, were sometimes amusing, like the inflammatory intros into two parts: before the concert blaring football anthem 'The Final' Gianni Roma through
the hall after the break was the whiskey song "Loch Lomond by Runrig.
followed towards the end more and more hits,
with 'Sailing' and final round and singing "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy" as cheerful party balloons. Everyone happy, and a little after half past ten people could go home or to go to the

Translated to English it reads as follows
A night Rod Stewart delivers great music, great enthusiasm and an extremely charming performer. That was the case in the seventies of the last century and it is reassuring to report that it was
also the case this evening in Amsterdam. It was celebration in the Ziggo Dome.
Outside the room the contrast could hardly be greater: in the fringe and glitter-clad crowd of Toppers occurring in the adjacent Arena mixes it crossed almost without exception in jeans with
robust fans of Rod Stewart. Kindly, but the rush makes sure that Stewart which starts later than planned. The opening is constructed for maximum effect: music of the Champions League, then the Raw
Hide theme, the canvas (a huge shower) goes on, the band is finished in sleek suits and snazzy dresses and then there is the man himself. He looks remarkably young for his 71 years and he only has to
laugh or the audience melts. Charisma.
Stewart started swinging with Having A Party, originally by Sam Cooke. His voice is good, but is some way into the mix. It is anyway still getting used to, because this is the first show of a
series that will lead across Europe. The singer gestures are musicians occasionally where to stand and when later in the show a spot is not addressed properly, he wonders if the lighting technician
may have been drunk. All this with so much charm that it looks like it belongs there. Experience lacking Stewart was not: the late sixties he sang at Faces, with that distinctive raspy voice and
blend of soul and blues. Went somewhere in the seventies, around the time he moved to Los Angeles because of the British taxation, the music press accused him musically for big money (a reproach
before Bob Dylan and Gerard Cox, and later met Metallica). That's one way to look against it, but you can also say that Stewart is increasingly developed as an entertainer, somewhere between Frank
Sinatra and Robbie Williams. Songs like Sailing (naturally passed this evening) may be just on the edge, but Stewart she brings so much brilliance that you're sold.
Football and short skirts
Stewart sings tonight slightly more than cover songs, but it will surprise no connoisseur. Many songs (such as Sailing) are better known in its version than the original. He entertained himself
visible on stage, sometimes with one hand in a pocket, regularly beating themselves on their own buttocks. Football lover Stewart - in the room carried a lot of shirts Scottish Celtic - shoot dozens
of balls into the hall. Nine huge screens ensure that no one will miss something. Regularly thereon shown old photographs, for example, Rod and his father during Can not Stop Me Now. And lovers of
short plaid skirts do not need tonight to go on the Internet.
The concert has a short break and also during solos by band members Stewart regularly goes backstage. When I Do not Want To Talk About It Stewart looks really tired, but after the backing singers
themselves have cared for a number (Young Hearts Run Free), Stewart comes back energetically from the wings for the last songs. Baby Jane and Hot Legs come along and Da Ya Think I'm Sexy seems made
for a rousing encore. The Toppers are still working, but none of those present had rather be at the Arena.
