The power of Music

Recently Mark Knopfler was in the city to swing the bangloreans. It was the first time I had gone to a concert.
So I had kind of mixed feelings about it.

Although knopfler's voice was nowhere near his original husky but heavy voice, he let his guitar speak for himself.

The sound effects and lighting set up the initial expectations.

He started of with a bang with "Why, Aye Man" and continued with some of his best collections including "The sultans of Swing", "Brothers In Arms" , "Money For Nothing" and "Walk Of Life".

Apart from knopfler the crowd too was a interesting mix of people ;-)

On one side there was this guy dancing as if he was on the verge of a brain wrecking fits.
Infact at one point in time I thought of handing him a iron key ( and saving his life the tamil movie way ;-) )

And there was this curious young teenager in front of me. Whenever knopfler burst into rapturous guitar compositions she shook here head so violently that I was afraid that she might faint.

On the other hand there were this cuddling couples who reminded me the Fevicol ad
"Yeh Fevicol ka mazboot jod hai, tootega nehi" (This is Fevicol's strong bond that won't break).

It looked like they needed some private time rather than mark knopfler's music. ;-)

Finally with knopfler's music ladden heavily in my head and a slow murmur of tunes in my mouth I returned back home ;-)

In the end I don't regret for having gone to this one concert.

that sums up the experience of a rock concert in bangalore !

I had gone for bryan adams concert last year. had to stand for a very long time in the crowd before bryan appeared. the crowd was too much for me to enjoy any kind of music. bryan was good as expected though.

May be a rock concert is not my cup of java.
