A chilly Saturday is about to become a fiery evening in Milan, where at Alcatraz two bands will ignite the hearts of the audience. Extreme are arriving accompanied by The Last Internationale, and the Chaoszine team is ready to tell you all about what happened. We’d like to thank Gianna from Primary Wave for their kindness and hospitality towards us!

The Last Internationale

Despite a slight delay of 5 minutes from the scheduled time, the atmosphere buzzed with excitement as the audience awaited the band’s appearance on stage. The set began with a mix of anticipation and eagerness. However, as the performance unfolded, it became apparent that certain melodies employed by the band were somewhat repetitive and at times felt overused, impacting the overall freshness of the musical experience.

Yet, amidst these moments, the standout feature of the night undoubtedly was the exceptional vocal prowess displayed by lead singer Delila Paz. Her captivating vocal technique resonated through the venue, drawing the audience in with its power and emotion. Moreover, the band’s collective stage presence was undeniably massive. Each member exuded an infectious energy, engaging the crowd and creating an electrifying atmosphere throughout the performance. Their synergy and connection on stage added depth and intensity to the show, leaving a lasting impression on the audience.

In summary, while some aspects of the musical composition may have felt repetitive, we can say that The Last Internationale‘ was a compelling experience for all in attendance.

The fervor and anticipation peaked as Extreme took the stage at Alcatraz, promptly starting their performance as scheduled, setting the tone for an unforgettable night of music. From the outset, it was evident that Extreme is a group of exceptionally skilled musicians. Each band member showcased an absolutely astonishing level of technical proficiency, dazzling the audience with their musical prowess throughout the entire show.

One notable aspect of the concert was the enthusiastic participation of the audience, who passionately sang along to every song. The setlist, thoughtfully curated with a mix of old classics and newer tracks, ensured an engaging experience for both long-time fans and newcomers alike. Despite having minimal equipment, Nuno Bettencourt managed to produce a remarkably rich and mighty sound, a testament to his expertise and mastery of his craft. His musical finesse added depth and richness to the band’s performance, captivating the audience at every turn.

Throughout the set, there were touching tributes and continuous quotes honoring the legacy of Van Halen, adding a sentimental and nostalgic layer to the evening’s performance. However, what truly made the concert an extraordinary experience was the band’s undeniable stage presence. Extreme commanded the stage with an irresistible magnetism that made it simply impossible for the audience to look away. Their energy and charisma kept everyone engaged and enthralled from start to finish.

A moment of lightheartedness emerged before the rendition of “Midnight Express” when Nuno Bettencourt humorously quipped, “This is the best part of the show because I’m sitting down,” eliciting laughter and setting the stage for yet another captivating performance. In conclusion, Extreme delivered a sensational concert characterized by exceptional musical talent that won’t fade with time. We left the venue enriched, because they have delivered a performance that only few people on this planet could have.
