With charm: Liza Minnelli inspires thousands of fans with temperament

Liza Minnelli has inspired with her concert rich in tempo on Saturday evening in Wolfsburg several thousand fans. The powerful-voiced world star danced with the international jazz and blues festival in the Autostadt on the stage.

She presented pieces from her new album as well as world-renowned hits like "Cabaret". In blue and violet light dipped the 62 years old elegant artist showing her theatrical skill between the songs - she played the contents and the forming of the songs and told stories. Four dancers and singers supported the diva, a 12-headed orchestra accompanied them.

In a dark grey glittering upper top, black velvet trousers and a shining headband Minnelli greeted the fans with a smoky voice. She loves the German audience, she returns a lot, she said winningly. Liza’s appearance was a song, and dance show - she had put the microphone stand aside already after few songs. After some quieter songs she needed a place to go along with her on stage and the audience.

With kisses from her hand and an addition - to her world hit “ New York, New York “ - Liza Minnelli said goodbye under blustering applause of the spectators. The diva gave only three concerts in Germany.

After many highs and low-pressure areas, heavy health and private problems she seems to want to enjoy being an artist every minute. The diva answered the question what stands then with her, firstly - dancing, singing or acting - on Friday evening in Wolfsburg spontaneously: “ This moment now “.

With Herbie Hancock and Salomon Burke immediately two music legends had begun the festival on Friday. Already for the fifth time the Autostadt of Volkswagen became the stage for world stars and newcomers. The final concert this year should give on Sunday evening Roger Cicero.

Gospel-Evergreens wie „Oh when the Saints go marching in“ oder den Louis-Armstrong Hit „What a Wonderful World“. Der ebenfalls 68 Jahre alte Herbie Hancock wartete hingegen nicht nur mit altbekannten Werken auf, sondern auch mit Songs von seinem jüngst mit dem Grammy ausgezeichneten Album „River: The Joni Letters“, eine Hommage an die Sängerin Joni Mitchell.
