Hmm not sure. Yeah I didn't think it worked that well for Melanie's vocals.

I had to catch the train. I didn't want to take a cab back home. And Melanie was just one of the performers. I wasn't really keen on the other artists.

I think maybe she didn't travel with her band, I wouldn't be surprised if she (or there organizers) hired a local band/musicians to play this gig.

I doubt a brand new local band have learned the whole set just for this concert.....

and seems like the drummer is from her band... isn't just the guys on the keyboards different?

He was the guitar player for the UK part only. In Germany he wasn't on the band already.

Oh, I'm not familiar with the new band at all, I just thought it might be the case because I'm a fan of another independent artist and I know she does that when she tours 'cause it's probably cheaper than flying and booking hotels, etc for the whole band (this might be different for Melanie since this was a festival that I guess paid her well enough to go over there).

Yes, but it was in Mexico, the first time that she went there as a solo artist.

If she does the same in all Latin America, we dont care

Most artists wear the same clothes and play the same setlists during the course of a tour (even if it's a single t-shirt and jeans!). Why would she have to do it differently? (adding stress and pressure to the situation of touring) Why are people so hung up on what she wears? If you're seeing one of your favorite artists live why would you be upset about a "repeat outfit/setlist" when she's doing what's expected for an artist on tour? I don't get it.

It is just the drummer from her new band, the rest is pre-recorded and the other two guys are just "miming". That's a smart move since you've got three less people to spend on and bare in mind each musician have their own instruments (keyboards, guitars plus pedals.... When it comes to drums is easier to have one with the same setting and it is also and instrument you can not "mime" with! Too loud!

Your obsession with her clothes is getting so boring. If you care that much then you really should support someone like Little Mix, Steps, Jessie J, Lady GaGa and the likes. They are more about image combined with the music, while Melanie isn't about image at all. She is no different to many musicians who don't change during shows, Kaiser Chiefs didn't, Scissor Sisters didn't, Queen didn't (although Adam Lambert did), Elton John didn't... They are all acts who I have seen in concert who wore the same outfit throughout, and then I saw Elton John wearing the same outfit and doing the same show in Vegas nearly 2 years later... :shrug: Still great shows :shrug:

It really highlights the double standard in our society, if this were a male solo act nobody would be commenting on what he wore during a show. :shrug: :rolleyes:

I am supporting who I want.....and she is the only artist I am since 1996......if I want to comment her clothes I will do......accept it.....
Cant wait to see her in brazil to make some comments again...:P:D :wave:

Oh, well done, I'm glad you ended seeing her. 200MXN is really cheap in Euros, I have no idea of how much is the regular price for a concert in Mexico.

I think the original price on Ticketmaster Mexico was around 1500+ MXN (around 80 USD). I thought it was a little exorbitant so I didn't buy it. On the day of the event, I just passed by the venue (Auditorio Blackberry) and was immediately approached by some guy selling tickets. Maybe I looked like I really wanted to go inside LOL. I saw the ticket and it only said $1.00 (which probably meant 1 MXN). I thought maybe these were free tickets or extra tickets. There was no way I was going to pay the 1,000 MXN that the guy quoted me so I left. I said I can only afford 200 MXN (about 10 USD) but he declined. A few minutes after 8PM, I went back to the venue and the guy was still selling the tickets and he said he'll take my 200 MXN. Deal!

Great crowd! You can feel how the Mexican fans wanted to see a Spice Girl so bad. Was a great night. :love:
I also saw Ace of Base before Mel's performance and enjoyed their songs. Brought me back to the 90s.
After Mel performed, I think Vanilla Ice was next but I had already by the time he performed.
