Ligabue and his followers are “alive sufficient”

There have actually been (a number of) years the place Ligabue did not carry out to a powerful variety of individuals. Nevertheless it’s exhausting to recollect them. Within the musical atmosphere we get used to those conferences of 100,000 individuals (to be actual, 103,006 paying individuals): they’re now not stunning.

Nevertheless, many points of the self-congratulatory live performance “30 years in a day” with which he inaugurated the RCF Enviornment, Campovolo’s replace, are stunning. Much more than the duets with the friends of honor -in alphabetical order: Loredana Bertè, Francesco De Gregori, Elisa, Eugenio Finardi, Gazzelle, Mauro Pagani- and the presence of the musicians who’ve shared the final 30 years with him: 1) Group 2) La Banda and three) El ClanDestino (who is aware of what had brought on that leap of originality within the selection of identify).

And the resounding confidence with which, with none tangible paid obligation after two and a half years away from the stage, he carried out the 31 songs of the three-hour live performance, naturally managing the emotional waves of the night, is stunning. Sure, it is stunning, as a result of heck, Luciano Ligabue wasn’t born a showman, he did not have the pure pleasure that the majority huge stage animals are born with. He labored on it with a dedication and conviction that’s even spectacular. He remained himself, along with his private edges, however discovered a technique to attain a powerful variety of individuals. From there comes one other shock, maybe probably the most surprising of the author, that he needed to throw out lots of ready clichés earlier than arriving in Reggio Emilia.

Let’s put it this manner: Luciano Ligabue followers appear to be him. However not by date of delivery. A minimum of, not the $100,000 defendants at RFC Enviornment. The grizzolati are clearly there however they’re extra noticeable than in different concert events, as a result of they aren’t the primary element. Lots of the individuals are between 25 and 35 years previous, and in reality the title of the live performance “30 years in someday” appears to tackle an unpredictable that means. However makes an attempt to do diligent analysis within the subject to know what they’re doing right here regardless of belonging to a very completely different technology are bounced again as if Ligabue himself responded, maybe the one from 1990, who launched his first album on the age of 30 . : an already mature rookie, along with his expertise to share.

It might be that that is the idea of this (stunning) concord with that age group, maybe not in the identical city metropolises that monopolize Italian music at this time, however in probably the most related remainder of the nation, the one whose discomfort is taken into account uncool . . In any case, most of this correspondent’s makes an attempt to analyze the tales of the spectators within the meadow have been met by a seraphic Ligabovic impatience with the journalist. An perspective which may convey an amused smile to the rocker from Correggio (and normally additionally to the journalist, if the factor had occurred to a colleague of his as a substitute of him). So that you just perceive this, here’s a pattern of conversations: if somebody is excited by verifying their veracity, hurry up, as a result of for causes that can come up, they are going to be rapidly destroyed.

Journalist vs younger man with an Emilian accent. “Howdy. Can I ask the way you began following Ligabue?” “No. I imply, you possibly can. However I do not need to reply. I imply, no offense. However that is my enterprise.”

Journalist vs one other younger lady with a Lombard accent and a purple and black bikini. I’m writing an article for Rolling Stone. Can I ask you if in case you have already seen Ligabue concert events?». “Sure”. “Can I ask you, or have you ever already seen it?” “Nope”. “I am bothering you?”. “No, you’re well mannered, that’s, sufficient. It is me who just isn’t attention-grabbing.” “Ah… Excuse the query, however is it an authorized opinion of those that are with you or is it some form of challenge of yours that you just perform?” You are humorous, huh. Can I name a buddy of mine? “Nice, however are you answering questions?”

Journalist vs buddy of the younger lady in a bikini. “Would you give me a hand for an article?” “You receives a commission, it’s important to do it your self.” “However additionally they pay me to explain the Ligabue followers.” “Then search for the Ligabue followers.” “You aren’t?”. “I am right here to see the live performance.” “Say Ligabue”. “Sure, I like him very a lot and I need to see his live performance.” “Okay, I believe I’ve learn. Okay. What do you say, in your opinion, if I ask that man within the t-shirt a query with the phrases “It is Friday, do not break my balls” he offers me linear solutions? “In that shirt? ma What do you say?” “You are proper, I am in search of them.” “That is it!” Go interview the man over there, the one with the “W the pussy” signal. Are you going to ship?” “Ahaha, you are good.” “Good??” “Try to be a youtuber.”

Journalist vs younger man with yellow and purple scarf with the inscription LIGA (unsure origin, maybe Milanese). Howdy, can I ask you what number of Ligabue concert events have you ever seen? “I do not give statements” (laughs from buddies sitting close by). “Is anybody making a press release?” Buddy of the younger man with a handkerchief: “Sure, I need to ship a message to my woman who’s taking me that I’m on the Ligabue live performance.”

Journalist vs buddy of younger man with bandana. “Why the information? What do you hear? “. “Gu Little”. “Did you attempt to make him come?” “Yeah, however with all of the fags out right here, it is best if he does not come. Wait, the place are you going to place that video? You did not ask my permission to do it.’ “In actual fact, I do not publish it, it is simply to transcribe what individuals say.” “I’ll sue you.” “However for what?”. “Stalking. You are stalking my love story.” “You mentioned you wished to ship a message.” “Sure, however nameless.” “It’s: you did not inform me your identify.” ‘Mario. Now that you recognize, I’ve to kill you.’ “I surrender: I am leaving.” “No, too comfy. Now it’s important to discover me a lady.”

What’s fascinating is that like Ligabue, nearly everybody interviewed laughs somewhat, even when the dialog takes a ridiculous flip. As a substitute, when the birthday boy enters the scene at 9:00 p.m., the faces of these current mild up with apparent pleasure. Nevertheless, he by no means broke down. Theirs would appear like a novel fandom: very massive however fastidiously chosen, together with small skyless stars and rock’n’roll dreamers. Even after they dance on the world, they do not need to destroy it; in spite of everything, the place would they dance? When everybody shouts “I’m alive sufficient”, the large screens body them and their emotion is clearly seen; nevertheless, she just isn’t ecstatic, a bit as if they’ve realized from life to not overestimate happiness. After they yell on the sky, theirs is not a grudge cry, it is extra like a big “Okay, honey, thanks anyway.” In tune with what Ligabue outlined within the press convention as “a really sturdy feeling of gratitude for individuals who have allowed me to reside this life till now”. It’s no coincidence that the live performance begins with I would not commerce this life for anybody else. “He’s the final one to come back out, he was born after I wrote my final guide, during which I unfolded all of the recollections of my life that I felt had been important.”

It should have been self-investigation (though actually, we had been satisfied that he had already completed quite a bit, between songs, books and films, we see that self-examinations by no means finish) however earlier than going as much as the massive, new stage of the RFC Enviornment, he was affable and relaxed . As if the dip within the first assembly of the ocean after two and a half years of confinement did not hassle him a bit. If this had been actually the case, we would even be in for another shock: Ligabue making peace with sure private flaws that he had a tough time coping with. Even trying on the live performance and evaluating it with these seen up to now, MiticoLiga has by no means appeared so at peace along with his work, along with his success and even with those that don’t love him or who’ve thought to membership him (or maybe as a substitute pretends, and simply waits for the second to return them). “With the thickening of the arteries I really feel increasingly more sentimental”, he says on the press convention, and nearly (ALMOST) smiles. Then he philosophizes: “Typically we enable ourselves to be satisfied that there are fashions of good life, however no life is ideal. And I am blissful that I not too long ago got here to this conclusion.”

Probably the most putting points of the brand new campovolica enviornment, which in a number of days will host the sects divas Italians collectively for the occasion “Una. None. 100,000”, is the five-degree incline one will get, we’re instructed, with an extra 12 tons of earth. A mild slope that permits the final rows to see the stage higher, but in addition these on stage to see that there are faces, that there’s additionally life there. The space with the general public, nevertheless immense, appears to be shortening. Whether or not this contributes is tough to say, however surprisingly, on the very evening that Ligabue celebrates himself, he does not appear to be a rock star in any respect: his face blown up by large screens does not appear to be that of a hero. Ultimately, he’s somebody who wished to say issues and located lots of people who wished to take heed to him. And as this text has tried to level out, in its personal little method, it is not the individuals who would take heed to anybody.
