On the Alcatraz stage, straight from Detroit, Eminem's band, D12. Looking at the crowd thronging the venue, over two thousand people, one realises that the Dirty Dozen can also walk alone, without the pretty face and rhymes of His Majesty Marshall Mathers.
The first to take the stage are the Flaminio Maphia, from the capital to cold (very cold, due to rain) Milan to present their new album 'Per un pugno di Euri', which will be released at the end of the month. G-Max and Rude Mc hold the stage very well and the reaction of the audience is proof of how a big stage like tonight's does not frighten the two rude boysalready used to open for big American names such as Ice-T.
Next up is the new project by Fish, formerly Sottotono, accompanied by the trusty Esafront-man of Otierre. The set unfolds in about twenty minutes full of freestyles docalso enriched by the presence on stage of Retneksinger of Tuscan band Michelangelo Buonarroti. This summer, the trio stirred the ponds all over Italy with the hit single 'Resta Ancora', and a crime would be not to perform it this evening. Also on stage Cowfor a small jam.
The audience's impatience begins to rise when D12 allow themselves a few minutes' delay before starting the concert. Around 11pm, there they are on stage: BIZARRE, SWIFT, PROOF, KON ARTIST and KUNIVA start the show. Bad, angry, and even ironic, when the fat Bizarre takes off his shirt proudly showing the audience his 'love handles'. Here is the setlist of songs performed:
D12 WORLD INTRO
SHIT CAN HAPPEN
JUST LIKE ME
UNDA THE INFLUENCE
PIMP LIKE ME
U R THE ONE
I'LL BE DAMED
AMERICAN PSHYCO II
When the concert is over, everyone at Casablanca of Corso Como for the aftershow. And around 4 a.m., the Dirty Dozen disappears into thin air.
See you next time... maybe in six.....
