The long tail, formed in front of Karlin Farm Friday night, began to run for half an hour, half an hour before the concert began. Frozen fans, however, went into the lobby and, with musical appreciation, they starve for the third time the star duo of the evening. The British composer, singer, bassist and soul and body musician Sting returned to Prague in a year and a half, where he also invited Shaggy Jamaican rapper. And along with the six accompanying musicians, they showed a energetic show full of reggae and classic hits of Sting, back to the Police.
Sting, who has already celebrated his sixth anniversary a month ago, is not afraid to experiment. On the contrary, he seeks new musical paths, but he remains himself. When he first joined Shaggy, they were only planning to record musical tributes to the Caribbean sounds in the song Do not make me wait. Collaboration of musicians, combining love for reggae and the country where this style is popular music, has plenty of fun to record the entire album and to go on a joint tour. They called them 44/876 according to UK and Jamaice telephone preferences.
Rock ballad, rap and double voice
It was not just a combination of numbers. The concert in Prague has shown that there is a perfect combination of genres and characters. The musicians led by Sting behind the microphone and bass and Shaggym colorful dancing with the handset's microphone began with a hit Angajan in New York, occasionally modified predictable at Jamaican in New York. The hits that Sting has on his account with a beautiful line have alternated the songs of the new album "Caribbean" interconnected with Shaggy rap and the guiding audience under the reggae rhythm. The audience met Message in a bottle. Every little thing makes it magical, Every breath you take. Desert Rose, the gold fields and other hits. These were often special with Shaggy's rap scenes.
While Sting went uncompromisingly and skillfully from one song to another, Shaggy, aged fifty, enthusiastically embraced an entertainer. He has constantly urged the public to cooperate, dance and applaud. In the song Tree tree he wore the robes of the judge and wound his wig to condemn Sting into a trickery trick for unforgivable sins on the stage of the theater. Sting once again proved that although the vocal range had already moved slightly, the beautiful voice color and the ability to grab the songs to sing and resist remarkably long in one tone remained and did not give up. Shaggy once again showed how many words he could say at a rhythm in one verse, sing the women in the audience and take on the role of the show without flaw. However, he was able to adapt to the best vocal doubles he sang with his British colleague, for example fragile.
As the musical energy gradually transmitted to the audience, the atmosphere in the lobby gained strength. After Sting introduced his accompanying musicians, including Shaggy, two guitarists, a drummer, a classicist, and two great vocalists, each with solo, had to come twice on the podium. Yeah, like Sting played So, alone, Welcome to these two men.
