He appeared in a pink shirt and greenish silk trousers, too baggy to be comfortable. As if it were the patio of his house, the Alcazaba de Badajoz, and in front of 8,000 friends who went to see him and hung the “sold out” sign at the Alcazaba Festival. I have already said it Rob Iniesta, “concerts in Extremadura take on another meaning”. He came in half an hour late, in fact he arrived almost 18 years late (his last gig was in 2004) but none of that mattered to his devotees, to those who feel like it’s theirswhen he moved from the side to the center of the stage and played the first chords.
There were people who had seen him at that concert with the band at the Viejo Vivero, others who had done it in other cities and those who had not yet been able to enjoy the live performances and the music. of this genius of Spanish rock and Extremadura. From the youngest to the oldest, everyone left their throats, as if they couldn’t believe it, when their bodies found themselves in front of the microphone and without saying a word, ‘Del time lost’ began to play.. “Good night everyone,” he said confidently to these friends who quickly started chanting his name. “Hope you’re enjoying the night, don’t miss a thing, you’re here and it’s now,” he continued when they left.
Without further ado, they continued to play ‘Above good and evil’ and people started jumping and raising their hands to the rhythm of the sound that echoed in this incomparable setting, the audience was looking forward to this special party they were going to to discover. The performance of the musicians, exceptional. Álvaro Rodríguez on keyboard, Carlitos Pérez on violin, Alber Fuentes on drums, Lorenzo González on accompaniment and Woody Amores and David Lerman on guitar. All from Extremadura. Just before the start of the long-awaited concert, it was heard among the fans that “musically they have gained a lot” and that they now have “a very particular sound”.
For a little over an hour, the songs follow one another. ‘To be a pervert’, ‘The saddest song’ and the fifth time all mobiles were on the air with flashlights, flashes, taking photos and videos to immortalize the first song Extremoduro played with ‘Si you are going. After the ecstasy, the euphoria subsided a bit when they presented a new song called “A la shore del río” and again a wave of feelings when they sang “Sucede”.
Around midnight, there was a half hour break so that the group and the audience would gain strength for what was to follow for the second part. But before we started, there was a moment to launch a naturalist message through the organization AMUS (Action for the Wild World) and two owls were released.
back to music Robe shook the 8,000 people gathered with ‘Mayeútica’ and with the classics of Extremoduro ‘Jesucristo García’, ‘Puta’ and ‘Ama, ama, ama and expands the soul ”to close in style, almost at 02:30, a unique experience for his followers, what he wanted.
For Fran Montero was spectacular and was “very very good”. He was not expected to sing the older songs and “the truth is the guy made it”. Paco Gallardo arrived with his Robe de Jerez de los Caballeros t-shirt to add another concert of “Spain’s best rock band” to his experiences. For Covadonga Palomo and Isabel María Carretero the desire to hear it was very high and the first one would have liked them to play “La vereda de la puerta de back”.
