Amy Shark, Luxor Cologne, 23.01.2019 (+ image gallery)
Normally a Saturday, free beer or naked girls need such a crowd in their native Australia to gather. In Germany, the indie-pop singer Amy Shark handed a Wednesday evening to sell out the Cologne Luxor completely. However, the concert on 23.01.2019 did not feel like a party – rather like a cozy round in the living room.
The evening was opened by Kelvin Jones , who thanks to his successful single ” Call You Home “. The Zimbabwean-British singer-songwriter was able to cast a spell over Cologne’s audience. Sympathetic, he animated the crowd directly to the first song to sing and generated thanks to angelic “woohoo” -Fangenängen an absolute goosebumps atmosphere. With his clear and soulful voice Kelvin Jones proved his qualities as an outstanding musician, and told in a relaxed living room atmosphere that he had learned a few sentences German for his girlfriend from Germany. In a few months he would come back to Cologne – an appointment that has not yet been announced, but which should be remembered in any case!
Together with two live musicians came Amy Shark on stage – accompanied by the epic song “Do You Hear the People Sing?” From the musical Les Misérables as an intro. As epic turned out to be the remaining appearance of the 1986 Australian born, because the German fans had to wait years for a tour of Germany the singer. Now Amy finally made it to Cologne for the very first time and the Luxor thanked the overpowered singer for his loud, text-perfect singing, happy faces and an inflated shark.
Both the songs of their EP “Night Thinker” and the tracks of the debut album “Love Monster”, which was released last year and achieved gold status in Australia, were able to convince live. Amy Shark lovingly described the songs as her children, all of whom would have a special place in their hearts. She came out as a huge fan with her “legendary” singer Mark Hoppus releasing the track “Psycho” and announcing that her child “Mess Her Up” would become the next single.
Amy alternately danced across the stage or picked up the guitar herself – always in a good mood and completely overwhelmed by the incredibly positive response of the German fans. Unfortunately, it was mainly the slightly older visitors who spent almost the entire evening on their smartphone and pressed repeatedly on the trigger of their camera. But just at the end of the show, the atmosphere was once again outstanding: first, Amy Shark covered the classic “Teenage Dirtbag” by Wheatus , where the usual crooked fanfare gave her great pleasure before the singer released her two hit singles ” Adore “and” I Said Hi “. The German “Shark Army”, as she called her fans jokingly, was thrilled and did not mind that there would be no more encore.
Instead, Amy took time for photos and autographs, rounding it off a successful, musical Wednesday evening in a relaxed atmosphere that did not happen without free beer or naked girls.
