Susana M. sent us this review about Lisbon show :
“[…] After buying dinner, we came back to the venue’s door, which opened at about 11 pm and we got in to the front of the stage. The club was a lot bigger than Coimbra, where they had played on the previous day, and it reminded me of the Cavern Club in Liverpool, where The Beatles started. The Prima Donna flag was hanging on the wall, it was good to see it there because it wasn’t at the gig in Coimbra. After a little bit, the club starts playing that song “Donna, the Prima Donna”, which I thought was absolutely hilarious.
The band appears and we all cheer and clap. I was just so happy it was happening again, I was seeing this amazing band play for the second time in two days.
The highlight of this gig for me was “Crimson Lust”. There was this crazy moment when Kevin got down on the stage floor and told us all to get down there too. So we and Kevin had our faces and arms “crawling” on the stage floor, singing the song. It was rad!
Levine was so hyper, he makes the funniest faces while playing, he’s a great great guy and I hope he will stay in Prima Donna forever!
Aaron, I just love him. He’s so cool and it’s great to watch him play the sax, then the keys, then the tambourine, then the sax again, then the keys… He’s fantastic!!
David is such a great drummer, I love how much he enjoys playing, he reminds me so much of Ringo Starr when he’s playing!
Erik is amazing, he’s so cool, his guitar playing is brilliant and he has great taste in guitars!
“I Don’t Want You To Love Me” was the last song before the encore. There’s that pause in the live verison of the song, the whole band went silent, Kevin looked at us and said “I forgot the lyrics!” so I sing “I ain’t ever gonna call you…” and Kevin smiles and says “That sounds right!” so they continue to play the song. It was so funny!
After the song they went backstage, we chanted “PRIMA DONNA! PRIMA DONNA!” and they quickly came back to play “Keep A-Knockin'” and finish with “Dummy Luv”. It really is a great encore. I love that cover. “Knock knock. Who’s there? Youkee. Youkee who? YOU KEEP A-KNOCKIN’ BUT YOU CAN’T COME IN!!”
And “Dummy Luv” is the perfect way to end a show, what a hot song.
It was an amazing gig. and the after-party was just as great and unforgettable. The venue turned into a night club, with us dancing and singing along to great music, from The Who’s “My Generation” to Prima Donna’s “Soul Stripper” to Blur’s “Girls and Boys”, and many many more. It was an awesome night!
A few hours later we really had to say goodbye, so we hugged each other and said “see you soon”.
I’ll never forget those two nights. It was so much fun and I can’t wait to see this awesome band of great people again.
I LOVE Prima Donna so much. I’m very proud of each one of them and I hope they will get very far, because if there’s a band who deserves to conquer the World, it’s these boys.”
