Portugal, Setúbal - Saturday 9th.
For the 9th time in a row, a group of fans and the Municiplaity of Setubal held the Summer concert that ended the Eurovision season (for fans) of 2017. Now we are ready for 2018 and for the first national finals that will took part probably in December.
During 9 years our website and our team took part in the organization of this concert with more or less artists, but always with success.
The worst problem this year was undoubtedly the fact that many artists could not attend the show because the event was scheduled for the same weekend in Frankfurt. The result of that was that the event in Germany was canceled and even the international artists in Setúbal were few, they left the public satisfied and eager to receive the next Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon.
During two hours the audience could listened to Sanja Vucic, Nathan Trent, Anja, Sasha Song and Timebelle.
All of them were supposed to perform 1 or 2 songs, pero por culpa de Mirela que canceló el espectaculo por problemas personales, the organization pidió a los artistas que interpretasen uno o dos temas más.
The high moment of the concert was the tribute that Nathan Trent made to Salvador Sobral singing the winning song of Eurovision. The next day, Nathan made headlines in all Portuguese newspapers. Nathan also provided us with two more songs from Eurovision as well as his song: Satellite and Heroes.
Another surprise came from the hand of Sanja Vucic who played the song of Inga & Anoush from Armenia. Modlitva was also very well received by the public and Sanja showed that she is a great interpreter. Just to remind that she's the actual number 1 in our Chart.
Anja from Denmark sang 4 songs to us. 3 of them evergreens and classics of pop music in which she was not shy to show her vocal skills. Sasha Song sang some of their songs aside from their Eurovision song and managed to put the whole public standing with their interpretation of Hit the Road Jack.
But the national artists were not lacking either. Anabela and Marco Quelhas (MTM) reminded us of some of the moments in Portugal's road to win Eurovision this year by performing their songs.
During the break a video wall with all the portuguese entries in Eurovision was shown and it was great to see the audience remaining at their seats, dreaming, singing and satisfied by the deserved victory.
It was a great show and you should not miss the 10th anniversary next year. Even if you are planning to visit Lisbon next May, don't forget not to spend all your budget and save some for Setúbal!
