It is in Antwerp that the American singer decided to finish her passage in Europe, we lived this evening in honor of the star of the moment.
An awaited moment
With the solid opening dact of Doss, we are finally ready to welcome the mystical Caroline Polachek. Two weeks after the release of her album “Desire, I Want To Turn Into You“, a real success from the critics, the beauty had a lot to do tonight in a sold-out Trix. The audience contains all ages, all cultures and all styles, a real moment of sharing and union in this cold night of February. At 9 pm sharp, the clock starts in the background of the stage and the public gets carried away, the moment so much awaited since this damn covid arrived. Caroline arrives, floating like a muse to offer us “Welcome To My Island“. The Trix got used to the quality of their sound production and this show does not fail to the rule. A solid wall of sound that honors the light harmonies of the American singer, who will not hesitate to share with us all her skills, octaves after octaves.
Deeper into the feelings
In a quartet formation, the pop diva takes her time to bring us even better into her world. Far from chaining titles in a hurry, we share her joy with “Blood and Butter“, “Billions” or the hit “So Hot You’re Hurting My Feelings“. A setlist containing the entirety of the latest album plus some classics for our greatest pleasure. The emotion is different on stage and we find other flavors in songs that we had studied carefully since the release of the last project.
She sings, the public dances, it shouts and above all we are listening.We feel a real communion of Caroline with her public, which will impress even the artist, repeating it several times. She obviously will allows herself an expected encore for the softer “Hopedrunk Everasking “(one of our favorite tracks!) into her classic “Door” and the sexy “Smoke“.
Setlist: Welcome To My Island, Hit Me Where It Hurts, Pretty In Possible, Bunny Is A Rider, Sunset, Crude Drawning Of An Angel, Ocean Of Tears, I Believe, Fly To You, Pang, Blood And Butter, Butterfly Net, Billions, So Hot You’re Hurting My Feelings, Hopedrunk Everasking (encore), Door, Smoke “
What to say about this astounding performance. After being the victim of a food poisoning 2 days before the show, we do not feel the difference. The voice is huge, ethereal, persistent and Caroline plays with us on a stage where she loses us in incantations of which she alone has the secret.An XXL performance for the American singer, something that tell us that seeing her at the Trix will soon be a collector moment… To be continued ! Thanks the Trix for this beautiful program!
