hauglandian In Nice tonight. Gonna play The Final Countdown with a symphonic orchestra for the first time ever. Will be broadcasted on Italian tv station Rai 1. Ciao!🕺 #ianhaugland#europetheband#rockklassiker#101drums
this should open the page with the bit of the tv show of last night. Sound did not impress me I think Joey had a few issues in the beginning. But as the song goes on, well, it's amazing as usual. Good point to highlight: the musicians of the orchestra are all under 26 years old. They were incredible during all show !
Interesting version...So is this the playback version but with live vocals and the addition of the small orchestra section with mariachi horns? haha.
Thanks for the link!
Yeah haha looks and sounds like it! It's the same playback version they used on the BBC tvshow "Children in need rocks the 80's" and some award show on Russian tv as well. Both earlier this year.
I honestly don't know what to think of this orchestra version. Don't think I like it... It adds nothing to it, really. Also, those mariachi horns ruin the original sound of Mic's keys! Makes the whole thing sound more cheesy, like one of those youtube karaoke versions.
