BLACKBIRD Live Music Club - Rome - 3th of April 2009

I had three wonderful days in Italy!! On Friday I arrived in Rome and stayed in the very friendly and comfortable Autohotel in Via Cassia km. 24,300. The concert was in BLACKBIRD Live Music Club which was completely sold-out and really FULL of very enthusiastic and warm audience which can be seen in Italy only. The gig was very impressive and the set-list included Dire Straits songs only which was very nice. I was delighted by the way how Marco and the other guys from Solid Rock performed some of the songs in a 'Rockpalast'79' style. Tunnel Of Love, Telegraph Road, the acoustic version of Walk of Life and Private Investigation were also great. Chris White joined the band for the Sultans Of Swing and played till the end of the concert. Planet of New Orleans totally blowed me away!! Romeo and Juliet finished the gig with my favorite improvisation by Chris and Primio!! After that there were two encores - Solid Rock and Money for Nothing - also great version including some great saxophone improvisation by Chris. I think the audience was very pleased that night...
