Fame Reunion Concert Part 1 - eVolution Dance Theatre - "Woodstock" & "Kelly Watch The Stars"


Just before the show there were Introductory speeches from the organiser, Stefano Mendogni, his father and the Mayor of Salsomaggiore Terme. It was obviously all in Italian so I didn't know what was being said but I got the impression it was partly to thank people for all their hard work in putting the show together and also about the disadvantaged Children that the show was raising money to help, through the charity Ger Onlus

Then the lights went down and the show started. 

 
The first song was "Woodstock" which was written by Joni Mitchell. It wasn't a song I was familiar with but it was very pleasant. At the front of the stage was a video screen and lights started to draw on to the Screen, creating all sorts of shapes and patterns images. Using lights and shadows we were presented with lots of creative images and dance poses by the eVolution Dance Theatre.



The tempo changed upbeat and the routine continued with "Kelly Watch The Stars" by Air. Again not a song I knew but instantly liked.


What we were watching was almost like an updated version of the images we saw in the season 2 episode "Blood, Sweat and Circuits" during the song "Electricity" so from that point of view felt very Fame like. It might have been nice had they actually used that song or other tracks from the TV show to make it fit more into the rest of the concert. The routine lasted nearly 10 minutes and although very enjoyable by the end I was certainly eager for the cast to come on and sing.


Thanks to Patrick Bron for the Video.

I am thrilled to hear that you have most of the concert on video. I have already found much of it online, but some of the songs that were song (Footloose, Never Never, etc.) are missing. I am very excited at the prospect that you will be posting those songs. Is this true?

Yes I will be posting all the songs. With the exception of the 1st part of a song Jesse sang called "The World" all the other songs are in full. Some of them I've had to slice together from different sources to create the whole song but they will be posted this month. Most of what happened between the songs will be posted too. With just the odd part missing. Enjoy.
