There have definitely been (few) years when Ligabue has not carried out in entrance of a powerful variety of folks. Nevertheless it’s exhausting to recollect them. Within the music atmosphere, we have grown accustomed to those gatherings of 100,000 folks (103,006 paying folks to be exact): they don’t seem to be stunning anymore.
Nonetheless, many features of the complacent “30 years in someday” live performance with which he inaugurated the RCF Area – Campovolo improve – are stunning. Much more than the duets with the visitors of honor – in alphabetical order: Loredana Bertè, Francesco De Gregori, Elisa, Eugenio Finardi, Gazzelle, Mauro Pagani – and the presence of the musicians who’ve labored with him over the previous 30 years: 1) Group 2) The Band and three) The ClanDestino (who is aware of what precipitated this leap of originality within the selection of identify).
And it’s stunning the convincing confidence with which, with none tangible dedication to the 2 and a half years he spent offstage, he carried out the 31 songs of the three-hour live performance, naturally managing the emotional waves of the night. Sure, it is stunning as a result of who cares, Luciano Ligabue wasn’t born a showman, he did not have the pure pleasure that almost all massive animals from massive phases are born with. He labored on it with a dedication and conviction which can be even awe-inspiring. He remained himself, together with his private touches, however nonetheless managed to achieve a powerful variety of folks. From which comes one other shock, maybe probably the most surprising of the author, who needed to throw out a pleasant pile of clichés ready earlier than arriving in Reggio Emilia.
Let’s put it this fashion: Luciano Ligabue’s followers appear to be him. However not by date of start. A minimum of not the $100,000 defendants on the RFC Area. The grizzolati are there, after all, however you discover them greater than at different live shows, as a result of they aren’t the principle ingredient. Most of the contributors are between 25 and 35 years previous, and truly the title of the live performance “30 years in a day” appears to tackle an unpredictable which means. However the efforts to conduct a diligent investigation within the subject to grasp what they’re doing right here, regardless of belonging to a really totally different era, are echoed as if Ligabue themselves answered, maybe the one in 1990, who was 30 years previous. age launched his first album : an already grown rookie, together with his expertise to share.
It could be that that is the idea of this (stunning) concord with that age group, maybe not within the very city metropolises that monopolize Italian music at present, however within the more-than-relevant remainder of the nation, the one whose discomfort is taken into account uncool . Be that as it could, most of this correspondent’s makes an attempt to research the tales of the spectators on the meadow have been greeted by a seraphic impatience of Ligabovic with the journalist. An angle that may give Correggio’s rocker an amused smile (and often the journalist too, if it had occurred to a colleague of his as an alternative of him). To grasp this, this is an instance of conversations: If anybody is fascinated with verifying their veracity, hurry up, as a result of for causes that can come up, they’ll quickly be destroyed.
Journalist versus younger lady with an Emilian accent. “Hey. Could I ask the way you began following Ligabue?”. “No. I imply, you possibly can. However I do not need to reply. That’s, no violation. However that is my enterprise.”
Journalist versus one other younger lady with a Lombard accent and a pink and black bikini. “I’m writing an article” rolling stone† Could I ask should you’ve seen any Ligabue live shows? † “Yep”. “Sure can I ask you, or sure have you ever already seen?”. “No”. “Am I irritating you?”. ‘No, you are well mannered, that is sufficient. It’s I who shouldn’t be fascinating ». “Ah… Forgive the query, however is it an authorized opinion of those that work together with you or is it some type of your venture you are operating?”. ‘You are humorous, aren’t you. Can I name a good friend of mine? † “Nice – however do you reply questions?”
Journalist vs good friend of the younger lady in a bikini. “Would you lend me a hand with an article?” “They pay you, you need to do it your self.” “However in addition they pay me to explain Ligabu followers.” “Then search for Ligabu followers.” “You aren’t?”. “I am right here to see the live performance.” “Di Ligabue”. “Sure, I prefer it very a lot and I need to see his live performance.” “Okay, I feel I’ve learn. Okay. What do you say, in your opinion, after I ask that man within the T-shirt a query saying “It is Friday, do not break my balls” he provides me linear solutions?” “With that T-shirt? you what are you saying?”. “You are proper, I am on the lookout for them.” “That that!” Go interview that man over there, the one with the signal “W the pussy”.’ “Is it okay if I inform him you are sending me?” “Ahaha, you are good.” “Good??” “Try to be a YouTuber.” “Uh, that is dangerous. Okay, it was my pleasure, thanks ».
Journalist vs younger man carrying a yellow and pink bandana that reads LIGA (unsure origin, possibly Milanese). “Hey, could I ask you what number of Ligabue live shows you have got seen?”. “I am not making any statements” (laughter from buddies sitting close by). “Somebody making statements?” Buddy of the younger man with bandana: “Sure, I need to ship a message to my woman directing me that I’m on the Ligabue live performance”.
Journalist vs good friend of younger man with bandana. ‘Why is he main her? What are you listening to? “Gue Pequeno”. “Did you attempt to make her come?” “Yeah, however with all these pussies right here, she higher not come — wait, the place are you going to place that video? You did not ask me for permission.” “Truly I am not posting it, it is simply to transcribe what persons are saying. “I will sue you.” “However for what?” “Harassment. You are bothering my love story.” “You mentioned you wished to message me.” “Sure, however anonymously.” “It is: you did not inform me your identify.” “Mario. Now that you recognize, I have to kill you.’ “I give up: I am going.” “No, too snug. Now you will need to discover me a lady ».
The fascinating factor is that, like Ligabue, just about all interviewees snort little, even when the dialog takes a farcical flip. Then again, when the birthday boy takes the stage at 9 p.m., the faces of these current gentle up with pleasure. But by no means damaged. He looks like a novel fandom: very quite a few, even when rigorously chosen, together with little stars with out sky and rock’n’roll dreamers. Even when they dance on the world, they do not need to destroy it – the place would they dance in any case? After they all shout ‘I dwell sufficient’, the massive screens body them and their emotion is clearly seen; nonetheless, she shouldn’t be ecstatic, a bit as if that they had discovered from life to not overestimate happiness. After they yell on the sky, it isn’t a spiteful yell, it is extra like an enormous “Okay, honey, thanks anyway”. In concord with what Ligabue described on the press convention as “a sense of very robust gratitude for individuals who have allowed me to dwell this life to date”. It is no coincidence that the live performance begins with I would not commerce this life for anybody else† “It is the final one which got here out, it was born after writing my final guide, the place I rolled out all of the recollections of my life that I assumed have been vital.”
It should have been the self-examination (even when we have been frankly satisfied that he’d already executed sufficient, together with songs, books and films, we see that the self-examinations by no means finish) however earlier than we bought to the immense new stage of the RFC Area, sure, he was pleasant and relaxed. As if the dip within the first ocean assembly after two and a half years of lockdown did not hassle him. If this have been actually the case, we would even be in for one more shock: Ligabue making peace with sure private flaws it struggled with. Even when we have a look at the live performance and examine it with these prior to now, MiticoLiga has by no means discovered a lot peace together with his work, together with his success and even with those that do not love him or who occur to play it with golf equipment (or possibly as an alternative of them pretends, and simply waits for the second to return them). “With the thickening of the arteries, I am feeling increasingly sentimental,” he says on the press convention, nearly smiling (NEARLY). Then he philosophizes: “Typically we’re satisfied that there are fashions of good life, however no life is ideal. And I am glad I got here to this conclusion just lately ».
Probably the most placing features of the brand new campovolica area, which is able to home the cults in a couple of days divas Italians collectively for the occasion “Una. No. 100 thousand ”, is the five-degree slope obtained, we’re informed, with 12 tons of additional soil. A delicate slope that permits the again rows to see the stage higher, but additionally for individuals who stand on stage to see that there are faces, there’s life there too. The space from the general public, nonetheless nice, appears to be getting smaller. It is exhausting to say whether or not this contributes, however surprisingly he does not appear to be a rock star in any respect on the evening Ligabue celebrates himself: his face, magnified by big screens, does not resemble that of a hero. Finally, he is somebody who wished to say issues, and he discovered lots of people who wished to listen to him. And as this text has tried to level out in its small method, it isn’t individuals who need to hearken to anybody.
