Concert organized by Phoenix Enterntainment.
Hugh Laurie comes for the first time in Romania on July 12, 2014 in a concert organized by Phoenix Entertainment to thrill us with one of his multiple talents, music. Known as an actor and comedian from his famous sketches “A Bit of Fry and Laurie” of the British sitcom “Blackadder” and especially from the popular US series “House MD,” Hugh Laurie will provide other artistic side during a special concert to take place at Romexpo Central Pavilion.
Hugh Laurie concert promotes the new album of the artist “Didn’t It Rain,” launched in 2013. After the success reported by his first album “Let Them Talk,” made up of classic blues songs that get to one’s soul through the piano and guitar notes along with Hugh’s voice, a rhythmic voice celebrating the New Orleans blues, the time has come for another musical direction. Although he does not reject the blues that made him famous as musician, Hugh Laurie leaves the musical realm of New Orleans and goes toward the blues in the heart of America. Thus, the Romanian public will enjoy songs that belong to the oldest representatives of this type of music: “St Louis Blues (W.C. Handy)” or “I Hate A Man Like You (Jelly Roll Morton)” but with modern jazz with R&B influences.
Hugh Laurie’s interpretation is one that deserves to be heard live, along with that of the professionals that accompanies him and about whom Hugh talks with a lot of consideration, as their presence on the same stage is a pleasure. Among them there are Copper Bottom Band, Elizabeth Lea, Larry Goldings and other famous artists. For those who listened to Hugh Laurie only through his short musical scenes in “House MD” when he was playing the piano or the harmonica, the time has come for a complete musical experience on July 12.
