Concert for Streetdogs
In Lisbon (Portugal) there is going to take place the very first charity concert for streetdogs (February 9th, 2019). The entire revenues are donated to neglected, hurt and maltreated dogs. Famous musicians from Germany as well as Portugal support this project looking forward to an unforgettable “Rock 'n Flamenco” eve that is hardly topped with respect to its exclusiveness and intimacy.
The concert is led by the exceptional musician on the guitar named Uli Jon Roth (Scorpions / Electric Sun et al). No doubt that Roth belongs to the most popular guitar players in the world being able to shape with his style the first lp's of the Scorpions and besides, influencing a variety of other grand musicians worldwide. He was on stage with many of the well-known rock- dinosaurs (e.g. Deep Purple, Smashing Pumpkins or Robby Krieger (The Doors)) and in 2018 he again has been on tour with 'G3-Tour' – for the third time – a changing format sending the three very best guitar players around the globe.
Our star of the evening from Portugal is the multi-talent Manuel Joao Vieira. The musician, actor cabaret artist and politician is very well known in the country: Musically wise he masters genres from Pop, Rock 'till Flamenco taking Portuguese traditions in the grain. He likes to be a regular guest in the TV shows in Portugal and he is recording his new album now.
In 2012 and 2016 he stood as a candidate for the Portuguese presidency and managed to get appreciating election results as a lone. The candidacy was also regarded with a satirical background aiming at evoking attention for corruption in the country. In 2005 his presidency has been filmed receiving the title “O Candidato Vieira” (English: ”The Candidate Vieira”) and the proper subtitle “Satirical rock star runs for president of Portugal”.
Another guest from Germany is the musician Chris Bay, who became famous as a lead singer of the formation “Freedom Call”, especially in the metal area.
Concerning lyrics Bay has just written from his soul the things he always had to deal with. He says: “It is about love and experiences in life, about creating hope and maybe providing help in the one or other case. It is because there not only sunny, but cloudy days in life.” Still, his optimistic nature always shimmers through.
Bay is touring for 2018 with his solo program – just with his acoustic guitar in his suitcase – through the countries of the world bringing the mood to the boil despite minimal instrumentation.
Where do the revenues go?
Complete revenues are donated for the streetdogs. In this case we deliberately have decided to choose a small animal welfare organisation in Portugal, who exclusively is operated by volunteers of hard working friends of animals: P.A.T.A.S. (Proteccao aos Animais sem Tecto para Adopcao e Salvaguarda) is dedicating to animals active support.
