Alicia Keys Sets Vienna on Fire

 

There used to be glow sticks being waved by fans in concerts -nowadays, that’s your cell phone…especially if Alicia Keys ask the audience to do so, it turned the whole concert hall into an illusion of starry skies. It was easy to see how the singer-pianist could set a city on fire; when she sits at the piano and starts to tip them keys and belt her songs there’s nothing to do but be in awe.

Two hours long of soulful singing with a minimal set, Keys’ Set the World on Fire Tour Vienna Leg  featured her greatest hits starting off with the Jay-Z collab-feature Empire State of Mind and an elaborate cityscape of New York on a giant screen.

Grammy nominated American artist, known by the mononym Miguel, opened the concert for Keys singing a selection of his own songs. It was a very good performance (although I was turned off by his assumption that the Viennese population don’t speak English that much, lol).

 

 

Often she’d be on the piano skillfully playing as she sings. Which is what we love about her.

There was just one costume change for Ms. Keys. Clad in a tight-hugging trousers that showed off her curves, she paired it with a old rose or something to that shade-top, looking all too graceful as she moves a bit to the tune of her jazz-y songs. She changed into into a killer lila dress for the Empire State of Mind finale (yes, twice… but this time with a video intro of Jay-Z on the big screen, we thought he’d actually be there) sending the audience to their feet.
