Backstage Live / Pula / Croatia/ 16.08.2018

The concert

The concert  which was part of the Burning Spider Tour 2018 was held outside at the amphitheatre in Pula, Croatia which offered a dramatic backdrop with great lighting and sound.

The performance

Before the show, i didn’t really know what to expect but from the moment that Cleo Panther, the lead female vocalist, walked out and took center stage , bathed in red seductive lighting and lowered her sunglasses and started to sing, I knew it was going to be a great and memorable concert. From start to finish all the band were fantastic and full of energy with some exceptional music being played.

The stage

Parov Stelar made good use of lighting, smoke and stage effects and its understandable that they were voted best “Best Live Act” in 2013 and 2014 by the “Amadeus Austrian Music Awards”. Each song was perfectly choreographed and offered a wealth of photo opportunities. The charismatic musicians were a joy to photograph with each one of them either playing a great solo set or performing as a  duo / trio or band.
