SALTANDO SOBRE LOS ESCENARIOS CON TEXAS JUMP ON BOARD DE GIRA POR ESPAÑA

138


Lo que hace la banda escocesa capitaneada por Sharleen Spiteri no tiene nombre y es que con cada disco que presentan y con cada gira que traen por España, a pesar del paso del tiempo y de los años no dejan de sorprendernos y es que con su conjunto de canciones que abarcan varios tipos de géneros que van desde el rock puritano hasta jugar con el rap o dance, siempre tienen algo nuevo que mostrarnos y aunque no se alejan de sus orígenes, siempre saben adaptarse a los nuevos tiempos e incluso regresar al estilo de la vieja escuela, lo mejor de todo es que esto no solo lo apreciamos en sus discos, sino también en sus directos; en los cuales a pesar de que siempre nos dejan saciados con grandes éxitos en su repertorio, siempre hay espacio para piezas nuevas que van rescatando  de sus discos o alguno que otro cover de aquellos a quienes ellos consideran sus ídolos o referencias a la hora de escribir canciones, razones por las cuales las llevan a sus conciertos.

Un pequeño break siempre viene bien par las bromas, Michael, Eddie y Tony

El año pasado, el 21 de Abril, nos presentaban su último trabajo Jump On Board (BMG, Pias) su noveno trabajo de estudio, un álbum muy fresco lleno de matices de rock, pop e incluso algo de disco, un  trabajo que se presento en varios formatos,  CD, Vinilo, Cassette y Vinilo en edición limitada en color amarillo, estos dos últimos formatos, todo un acierto para sus fans y melómanos, el primer sencillo promocional fue Let’s Work It Out, lanzado en febrero, un tema muy positivo y bailable que nos marcaba el regreso triunfal de la banda, el segundo sencillo se presento en Mayo, titulado Tell That Girl, una canción más rockera y que nos sorprendía con un video en el cual nos presentaba a Rory McCann, “el perro” en Juego de tronos a la batería, otra vez más todo un gusto para los fans y seguidores de una de las series más exitosas de los últimos tiempos, el tercer sencillo que nos presentaron fue Midnight, en julio, una canción más tranquila pero con ritmo; el último sencillo de este trabajo hasta el momento se titula Can’t Control y lo presentaron en Septiembre.

  Interpretando In Our Life Time, un clásico de su ábum, The Hush

El disco está integrado por  10 temas

  1. Let’s Work It Out 3:42
  2. Can’t Control 3:43
  3. For Everything 4:32
  4. It Was Up to You 3:18
  5. Tell That Girl 3:26
  6. Sending A Message 3:10
  7. Great Romances 3:28
  8. Won’t Let You Down 4:59
  9. Midnight 3:18
  10. Round the World 3:46

Este trabajo ha tenido una excelente aceptación en países como Bélgica, Francia, Escocia, Inglaterra y España, llegando a ocupar excelentes puestos en el ranking de discos más vendidos en dichos países, razón por la cual decidieron salir de  gira para promoverlo en una gira titulada Jump  On Board Tour.

El 26 de noviembre pasado la banda vino a presentar a Madrid este trabajo en directo, un día después de que lo hiciera en Barcelona, el sitio en Madrid fue la Sala Vista Alegre y como siempre que nos visitan, tuvo un lleno total.

El setlist estuvo integrado por 19 canciones en las cuales desde el principio nos mostraron la energía renovada que traían con este trabajo, un escenario sencillo como ellos, en el cual en esta ocasión destacaban unas bolas de discoteca que pronto se pondrían en marcha con la segunda canción de la noche Let’s Work It Out, y que nos dejarían momentos para recordar como cuando el público le cantaba el cumpleaños feliz a Sharleen por su recién 50 cumpleaños, el cual ella lo agradeció enormemente diciendo que le encanta Madrid y que es un público único y excelente, también antes de interpretar el último sencillo de este álbum Can’t Control nos hablaba de su  hija de 15 años y de la lucha continua (en buen sentido) que tiene con ella debido a la adaptación que hace de su lengua imitando el acento de los ingleses, un poco pijo para ella, con lo cual se llevo las risas del público, con Tired Of Being Alone, llego el lado perfeccionista de Spiteri y es que hubo un error de tiempo con la salida del sampler y ella a voces de no, no, no that’s not right (esto no está bien, hay que repetirlo) y comenzó a bromear con la gente de producción, pero definitivamente el momento de la noche venía después de esta canción ya que nos tenía preparada una sorpresa, al elegir al azar a un fan para  subir al escenario (jump on board) para interpretar junto con ella  el tema So Called A Friend,

La banda casi al completo, para esta visita a España hizo falta Ally

toda una delicia para la afortunada y gritos, aplausos y coros por parte del resto de los presentes, dos canciones después llegaba el turno de Midnight pero Michael hacía un paréntesis y pasaba al frente para agradecer el apoyo que tienen los fans para con la banda así como para nuevas agrupaciones que van surgiendo, ya que con el tema discográfico y las bajas ventas que tienen estos trabajos debido a la piratería, afortunadamente el público es quien tiene el poder de decidir que bandas funcionan y cuáles no, cosa que antes decidía la industria y el asistir a los conciertos es lo que hace la diferencia para las bandas y consigue que puedan seguir grabando discos y hacer lo que más les gusta; vendría la canción In Demand tocada de forma acústica y al piano y Sharleen aprovechaba para brindar con champagne por haber llegado a los 50 años y haber sido nombrada mujer del año, lo cual la hacía muy feliz. Como siempre hubo espacio para sus grandes clásicos como I Don’t Want A Lover, Everyday Now, Say What You Want o Halo y para grandes covers como Tired Of Being Alone o Suspicious Mind con la cual cerraban la noche y nos decía Tony, si alguien no conoce esta canción ya puede coger sus cosas e irse, en plan de broma.

Definitivamente como siempre un concierto sin precedentes, para recordar y para repetir en el cual echamos de menos a Ally, quien por cuestiones de salud no pudo visitarnos en esta ocasión.

Ahora un año después y gracias al éxito que sigue teniendo Jump On Board en las listas de ventas,  a los carteles de Sold Out que colgó en estas dos pasadas presentaciones por España y a la demanda de sus fans, es que la banda sigue de gira con este trabajo, razón por la cual este verano regresan a España para presentarse nuevamente en directo, pero ahora por nuevas ciudades y después de muchos años con 9 fechas confirmadas, que eso es un verdadero gusto para la banda y lógicamente para sus seguidores, puesto que no estábamos acostumbrados a tenerlos durante tanto tiempo por el país presentándose en concierto, las fechas son las  siguientes;

Sharleen dando las gracias

Jump On Board Tour, es una alternativa más para ver a la banda escocesa ya sea por primera vez o para repetir en cualquiera de estas ciudades, para escuchar tanto nuevas canciones de este su último trabajo, así como sus antiguos grandes éxitos, para rememorar a una banda que llevan casi 30 años subidos en los escenarios, con ventas de más de 35 millones y un puñado de sencillos exitosos en las listas de popularidad, lo cual augura un éxito rotundo en este second leg tour, que la banda presenta este verano.
