Bryan Ferry at Lisebergshallen....


Göteborg, Lisebergshallen, October, 28 (photo: GP)

Think about a concept that worked in 1974....and still function forty years later ! The elegant dandy with the seducing voice, still sing with the same charisma and deep feeling. Bryan Ferry's music is no less than....timeless. Magical-rhythmical candy for our senses, and yesterday nothing of that was changed. As usual Mr. Ferry gives the (splendid) musicians plenty of space in the limelight. The things one could complain about was the sitting audience in a dreadful handball hall, and the fact that live concerts dont have a rewind button. One and half hours of music was by the way a bit short for the money.

I hope we meet soon again Mr. Ferry !!
