John Faes, the self-proclaimed troubadour of the city, runs right than before. With reason, because his plate was just barely out or he had with ‘Mirror’ a thick track to tackle – the nth. Raymond van het Groenewoud was there in the Lotto Arena, not a missed opportunity, if you ask us), so was the audience itself the ‘tierlantijn’-chorus. It will not surprise you that the Antwerp crowd that lustily did.

But that is straight back from Tourist LeMC.

But that is straight back from Tourist LeMC.

What a difference with the podiumprésence of, say, two years ago, when Tourist (or Ristou, as he is in his lyrics often self-referential) is often leaning forward, somewhat nervously about the stage, walked to the polar bears – like a boxer that was afraid of his opponent with a solid blow to his harses. The performer, the Lotto Arena tonight on his hand was, it moved like a graceful dancer. Of skittishness was no trace of fear still less. On the contrary, with appropriate self-confidence, the darling of the inhabitants of antwerp that he was ready for the podium right’. That of the palace of sports. In november, it will Tourist Le MC there on stage.

‘Coureuge’

There is no doubt that he at that time still some hits to his list of achievements will have been added. ‘Coureuge viva’ is a contender. That reggaebeat, that cry, that pride. A song that is begs for the festival summer in to colors with a dose of ‘coureuge’ (for whom the language is not powerful: that is Antwerp dialect for ‘courage’).

Tourist marched by a pointed ‘en route’ and all the heads in the mensenzee rolled along to the beat.

Jos and Rolls of Katastroof came to sing along with “Hollow plant” and you felt how much these Antwerp folkformatie Tourist LeMC affected.

‘This night’ and sent the power of Wannes Van de Velde the hall – another hero of Tourist. ; William may, what concerns us is never enough to be honored.

Another example of a hit in the making: ‘Genuine lies’, which the Walloon Alice on the Roof came along. In the Antwerp, oh yes. With the hoarse zuchtstem of Alice in the chorus and the Tourist gerapte strofes did this song us very much think of ‘Stan’ by Dido, and Eminem. That is a song of long ago (nineteen years to be exact), but the combination zuchtzangeres rapper seems to work still.

Tête-à-tête

‘Music of the heart ” proved to be no match against the not so subtle acoustics of the Lotto Arena, just as ‘Troubadours’, which is what sharpness was missing. Oh well, let’s flaws, that are good were made. For example, when Tourist LeMC us knew to move with the pianoballad-with-message ‘We understand each other’. Or when the mensenzee enthusiastic ‘PALJAS’ called during the ‘King of love’. Which he the crowds then spoke with ” dear mèngsen’.

Or there are also people from West-Flanders were, wanted to Tourist LeMC for the form to know. That there were just three. In short, this was an on-and-top Antwerp tête-à-tête.

Seen on Friday, January 18, in the Lotto Arena, Antwerp
