Edu Falaschi / Angra : review and pics of the Angra's concert in Porto Alegre

Here is an English translation (sorry for my poor English), of the review of the Angra's concert in Porto Alegre (Brazil) on last May 24, published on Agenda Metal rs :

"One hour after the doors opening, Angra climbed on stage with Unfinished Allegro, introducing the famous and always waited song Carry on. Song that has involved the all public, either by jumping or singing. Edu Falaschi, waiting by all live to see if his performance would be like videos and comments posted on web the same week - such as Haltas Horas and its impact on Orkut - has been very competant to accompany Angra in its come back tour, singing as well the songs from Andre Matos (ex singer) as the songs of the new phase, with technical skill, losing focus on rare occasions.

After the exciting Carry On, the band introduce Nova Era. The introduction couldn't be better, mixing the most popular songs from the two phases of the band _ one introducing André - the other introducing Edu - making a great parallel between the two periods and impressing upon the band's come back. The come back of the band after a hiatus of two years is also marked by the drummer Ricardo Confessori's come back, after the way out of Aquiles Priester (Hangar).

Edu, charismatic as always, thanked the city for its hearty welcome. He said he was "very happy to come in Porto Alegre also in May and not only in August, as in many other cities". To thank and please some requests, the band finally played Lisbon in Porto Alegre.

The Angra's show was full of standards. Angels Cry, Make Believe, Metal Icarus, Nothing To Say and Acid Rain were five of them. From the two last albums, Temple Of Shadows and Aurora Consurgens, the songs selected have been Waiting Silence and The Course Of Nature. The band also presented to the public a surprise : Bleeding Heart : the ballad was played at a good time and we could see the fans excited singing in unisson.

Kiko Loureiro (guitar), Rafael Bittencourt (guitar), Felipe Andreoli (bass), Ricardo Confessori (drums) and Edu Falaschi (vocal) left the stage on "Olê, olê, olê, Angra, Angra" and bis requests.

They came back with Rebirth, that Edu sang with his microfone tied up on his belt during the first part of the song, while fans sang, impeccable.

Spread Your Fire closed the show, leaving the public imbued by the energy of the band for its so expected come back.."
