02.08.08   2nd NIGHT OF THE SOMONTANO WINE FESTIVAL

The concert for the “Encantados” tour began with a mix of classic songs recreated by the Gran Orquesta Sinfónica de Europa, directed by Luis Cobos, in which the audience participated by clapping along with the musicians. At the end of the piece, Paloma San Basilio took to the stage. It was then that the conductor of the orchestra and the singer picked up glasses of Somontano wine and toasted to music, to the audience and to the D.O. responsible for the 9th edition of the Festival. It was a great start to a great show enjoyed by 3,700 people.

The Gastronomic Extravaganza also had an excellent second night of the Festival: over 17,000 tapas and wines were served from 9 at night until 2 in the morning.

The Aragonese duet Amaral closed the Festival last night with a concert that has been heralded as one of the most wide-reaching in the history of the event in terms of sets, sounds, repertoire and attendance. Over 4,500 people left the Barbastro (Huesca) bull ring after one in the morning last night, full of energy after two hours of a concert in which Juan Aguirre and Eva Amaral interspersed the greatest hits of their seven albums with some of the songs from their latest work “Gato Negro-Dragón Rojo”, from which the tour of our country gets its name. “Perfect”, “a ten”, “spectacular” and “fantastic” - these are some of the words that audience members used to describe the show, in which they had the chance to join together to sing “Happy Birthday” at midnight to congratulate the singer on her recent birthday.
