Almost a Fantastic Night
21 November 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

I have just watched this DVD with the first presentation of Rod Stewart at the Royal Albert Hall and I found it an almost fantastic night, featuring Ron Wood, Chrissie "The Pretenders" Hynde and introducing the awesome Amy Belle.

Rod Stewart begins the concert singing his best-known hits – "You Wear It Well"; "Some Guys Have All the Luck / Addicted to Love"; "Handbags & Gladracs"; "Reason to Believe"; "Stay with Me" (with Ron Wood); Rhythm of My Heart"; "First Cut Is the Deepest"; "You're in My Heart".

Out of the blue, he shifts his style and sings songs that do not fit with his successful career - "They Can't Take that away from Me"; "Blue Moon"; "What a Wonderful World; "As Time Goes by" (in duet with Chrissie Hynde); and "For Sentimental Reasons", pouring cold water on the audience (and me). I skipped these songs in my DVD. I do not know why Rod Stewart insists in this terrible change of style for the deception of his fans since the beginning of his career in the "Jeff Beck Group" and "The Faces" in the late 60's.

Fortunately Rod Stewart returns with the greatest moment of the whole concert, in a duet with the unknown Amy Belle in "I Don't Want to Talk about It". He explains in his difficult to understand accent that he found the débutant Amy Belle singing in a subway station in Glasglow the same way he did when he was discovered by Long John Baldry. Congratulations to Rod Stewart for the chance he gives to this wonderful singer.

He ends the show with golden key, singing "Maggie Mae / Gasoline Alley" with Ron Wood and "Sailing".

Last but not the least, Rod Stewart is accompanied by magnificent musicians and also by the 60-piece BBC Concert Orchestra. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "One Night Only! Rod Stewart Live at Royal Albert Hall"
