SHARON VAN ETTEN – Riverienhof, Antwerp – 6 June 2022
Wonderfull American songstress SHARON VAN ETTEN was the happiest girl in
Belgium last Monday. Her sheer joy of being able to tour and perform again made
her feel seventeen again all through the entire show. And when she thanked her band,
her whole crew, and the audience extensively in the end, she was smiling from left to
right and back.
Her genuine enthusiasm was contagious, we all loved her for it. Sharon served us
a mix of old and new (from top album We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong).
Enticing renditions of emotive ballads like Anything (new), Darkness Fades (new),
Beaten Down (old), and the utterly fantastic rendition of Come Back (new).
The other half of the gig was a feast of upbeat thrills, like with Comeback Kid (old),
Mistakes (new), Every Time The Sun Comes Up (old) and of course Seventeen (old).
And how excitingly has her stage presence changed since the last time (six
years ago) I saw her play. Not standing still and just doing her songs anymore.
No, she danced all around the podium, she came singing upfront regularly to
connect with the fans, she just enjoyed herself every single minute and so did
we all. After a 90 minutes triumph, I only saw happy faces feeling young
Magic moments with a magic voice and a magic band.
Here’s a live(ly) idea of the beautiful night…
