Air Supply concert stirs up local audiences |

Hoa Binh Theater on Friday night was gradually heated up by each song delivered by the band Air Supply. Russell Hitchcock and Graham Russell sang and performed enthusiastically

Air Supply performs at Hoa Binh Theatre in HCMC over the weekend.
The two 60 year old gentlemen did not betray the audience’s love. Their voices seem not to be damaged by time. Hitchcock’s voice was melodious, strong and vibrant. Russell improved solo after solo on guitar. Audiences had a chance to see the familiar image of the two members of the well known band live on stage instead of on screen or video.

“I have been a fan of Air Supply since I was a child in the 80s. That’s why when the band comes to Vietnam, I have to come here to see them by all means,” said musician Quang Huy.

Many in the audience stood and shouted for joy and sang passionately with the band on some famous songs such as Goodbye, The Power of Love and Making Love out of Nothing at All. There was just an interesting music atmosphere between the audience and the band that erased all the space.

The band carefully explained the contents of each song before playing it to help the audience prepare. After the third song, Russell said “Hello Vietnam” and invited people to move closer to the stage. Members of the band even shook some hands with fans. “I come here to see and stay close to all of you. My dream now comes true to be standing here,” said Air Supply. The band’s friendliness contributed so much to the success of the concert.
