Brandy at Trädgårn.
No dancers. No moving stage.
No light show.
No fancy haute couture dresses.
Just a 4-man band and two background singers.
Fancy show and stage costume: 2 out of 5
Hairdo: -5 out of 5. Not even a crow would make a home in her hair.
On stage: one of my favourite singers from the 90s. Who have sold over 25million records worldwide. Who has had her own succesful TV-show. (Who is the cousin of Snoop Dogg!)
With a voice like honey mixed with silk.
Ripping off hit by hit,
"What about us"
"Almost doesn´t count"
"Have you ever"
"Top of the world"
"Boy is mine"
& of course, my personal favourite: "I wanna be down"
JEZ. And we could stand so close that even I (with my blindness) could see that she had no wrinkles in her face and that she has very nice arms - without getting trampled upon.
Like our good friend Riki D so perfectly put it (after Brandy´s opening number, "Afrodisiac" sent shivers down our spines) : "This is what I mean! Beyoncé is a fantastic artist, but Brandy, Brandy is a true musician!"
Concert total: 5 out of 5.
It´s a crying shame so few people turned up. She deserved at least as many people as Beyoné pulled to Scandinavium Monday night. The business of entertainment is ruthless....
