After finishing my university studies, I didn’t really go to any musical concert for at least about 4 years, probably because I was giving all my attention to my job. So, when some of my close friends asked me to go to a musical concert of a famous band of Greece, my native country, about a couple of years ago, I just couldn’t refuse.
It was a rock musical concert which took place in a large park on the outskirt of our capital city, Athens. Prior to attending this musical concert, of course, I went to a number of other famous music concerts, but I never really had the opportunity to go to one which was performed by a very popular band of my country called “Raining Pleasure”.
By the way, to introduce this music band a little, it was formed in 1990 by its lead singer, Vassilikos Sakkas. Since starting this band, he has sort of redefined the pop music of Greece by making it more appealing and contemporary. Anyway, after arriving at the concert, I found that the park was jammed with a huge number of music lovers from all over Athens. And as Vassilikos Sakkas kept singing his masterpiece hits one after another, the deafening sound of clapping and passionate screaming of the crowds there kept echoing from one end of the city to another.
The concert was supposed to end before 10:00 pm, but as the crowds there kept requesting for more and more songs, the band kept delivering more and more of their classic hits. Indeed, the atmosphere there in the park was very electric as everyone there looked so happy with the performance of the musical band.
Anyway, I really enjoyed the musical concert because the lead singer sang some of my most favourite songs which were originally sung by some other artists. Besides, all the music were very well performed, which were layered and structured in a lovely way with the help of a very top class, sweet and interesting sounds from both the traditional and modern musical instruments. I am glad that I actually went to that concert.
