A cold and rainy evening in Switzerland, many prefer to stay at home, cosily in front of the fireplace, but many others decide to enjoy the tender music of a Pop-Rock Icon in the halls of Z7 - and it felt very cosy there, too.
Pegasus Not quite in accordance with the rest of the line up, Swiss Pegasus performed classic Rock’n’Roll. Their energetic songs even get the stage crew dancing, and they set the clock back to those times of Elvis &Co, preparing for the main lady.
Alannah Myles It is unbelievable how somebody in such a frail state can manage a stressy tour. All eyes are on this fragile woman who should be known to everybody because of her hit "Black Velvet". Miss Alannah Myles is back. After many years she is now back with a new record, „Black Velvet“, containing 10 new songs and a new version of this successful single. On Alannah´s request smoking is prohibited tonight, and only a few do not stick to the rule, those black sheep who do not respect the wishes of an artist, even though she threatened to abort the show if she sees only 1 more cigarette. After her first track "Comment Ca Va" the Canadian explains to the 200 visitors where she had been all those years. After a car and a riding accident shw spent several years in a wheelchair, also because of bad chiropractic treatment. In that time she told herself that she would be back on tour, if she manages to get out of the wheelchair and walk again. Still those accidents have left their marks, and she cannot stand for a long time, or move her neck. Her songs became calmer, too, and added Blues elements. Therefore it is a calm evening with intense, emotional ballads, but with a great and still powerful unique voice. And the encore is that song everybody can sing along with -.“ Black Velvet“ - this one makes Alannah immortal, she will never be forgotten.
