Alicia Keys live in concert

I had always wanted to go to a concert of Alicia Keys because she has got an amazing voice and she is also an inspiration for me and all her fans. And it was on the night of 16 June 2013 that I saw one of the greatest concerts of ever: Alicia Keys at Pavilhão Atlântico, Lisbon!

When I arrived there, the atmosphere was electric and the crowd were very excited for her performance. Suddenly, thousands of fans started to scream for the concert to start, and a few minutes later, she was there, in the middle of the stage singing her biggest hits for the enthusiastic people. She also played some songs that I didn’t know, but even so, I liked it!

I loved the concert, it was a fantastic and unforgettable night! I think she sings spectacularly on her CD’s but her live performance is even better.

The only problem for me was that on that same night, I had had a guitar concert. I really wanted to go but at the end, I chose to go went to see Alicia, the singer who inspires me in the world of music, because we didn’t have always the chance to seeing someone so famous singing.

One Direction

One Direction are one of the biggest bands in the world but also hated by a lot of people.

As soon as I knew they were going to perform in Lisbon, on the 26th May 2013, I prepared myself to get a ticket before they sold out. In less than an hour not a single ticket was left and I couldn’t believe I was going to be in the 3rd row.

I really wanted to see them because they’re my favourite band, they’re humble and down to earth and I know and love all of their songs.

The crowd went hysterical. The moment they got on stage was just amazing and it seemed Meo Arena was going to fall down at anytime. There were 20000 people screaming, jumping, dancing and singing.

Their whole performance was great, they were really funny, they interacted with the fans and their voices were just perfect as they always are. Sometimes the crowd was even louder than the band.

They sang songs from their first and second album and the ones that I liked the most were “Little Things” and “Moments”.

Flying over the crowd and the fans singing along with them, for me were the highlights of the concert.

In short, Harry, Niall, Zayn, Louis and Liam know how to give a memorable show.
