I always associate Bonnie’s “Holding Out For A Hero” with a memorable scene from Shrek. Similar to this dreamy story, Bonnie has her own fairytale, a dream come true. And she’s still living it.

Right on time, Bonnie appeared on the stage. The overcrowded and overenthusiastic hall began to applause frantically. From then on, Bonnie unleashed her dazzling voice, impressing us all, nostalgic or melancholic, oldies lovers or hard rockers, believers or non-believers. Once, during the concert, she even exclaimed: “You’re a fantastic audience!”

Bonnie offered a complete experience. She told stories, she joked around, she put her life on a plate, in front of the public, and, most of all, she sang remarkably. Every song was delivered with an explanation, a good memory or a good laugh. Step by step, she also presented her beloved husband,  her faithful manager and her talented band.

For example, before playing “Lost in France”, Bonnie remembered her beginnings: she played for 7 years in a Welsh club before launching this first hit record. Her first big hit in the US was “It’s a Heartache”, making her famous worldwide.


She played her songs, her friends’ songs, classic songs… this is the case of Brian Adams’s “Straight from the Heart” or “Have You Ever Seen the Rain?”. She also sang a Janis Joplin song, firstly recorded in the same studio as the artist did. The surprise of the evening was “Simply The Best” – that was Bonnie’s song, not Tina’s, as we all believed! 🙂

Brilliant concert, huge artist, ravishing voice! Holding out for Bonnie again! 🙂
