James Blunt came to Ecuador March 19,2015 at the Teatro Agora de la Cultura. The concert began at 8 pm. The show had perfect sound, and had a great view of the band. The lights changed during each song, and most of the time they had calm blue and purple colors. In the concert he played his most famous songs (“Postcards”, “ You’re beautiful”, “ Bonfire Heart, etc. This was one of the most popular concerts in Ecuador since he has a lot of fans in here, from various ages. The concert had a varied cost; general $39.00, preferencia $69.00, VIP $ 89.00. To promote the concert, all over town there were adds on buses on “ musicalismo” entrance where the tickets were sold and many more places. Personally before going to the concert I was so excited, since the day I found out he was coming. While being in the concert, on the fourth line we could hear and see everything perfectly, the lights were not so bright but it illuminated the whole show, with a great sound that every word was heard. Almost by the end of the concert he came almost form 3 meters or less from us, I could feel all my body feeling with joy and not being able to move by the emotion. In the end we were interviewed and appear on T.V, as well many Ecuadorian newspapers had reviews and summaries about how the concert went. In the end I couldn’t find ay hater for this concert, or at least on what I read. He came one day before of the concert and there he took a picture with a “ poncho” that many people saw, as well had some interviews and the fan club went and took pictures with him. He spend only two days in Ecuador since he had to continue his tour, in the concert he gave some encouraging word on how he got here to Ecuador. Like every other country he went it was just a practice until he got here. The concert over all had a fun and entertaining atmosphere, but as well with his sad songs it put many fans to cry and feel related to the songs he played.

    From what I understand the article is about a bit of background information of the singer and then a brief review of the concert. I think that the background information helps the reader understand about the singer. Especiall, if you´ve never heard of james blunt. I enjoyed the review because you can feel the emotion from the writer. I also really like james blunt, which made me intrested in this article. I felt like if I was in the concert and if I could actually hear him singing. From what I can see he sang the most popular songs he has,which obviously made this a succesful concert.

I love how you introduce the readers to the artist; giving them a background of who he is important, it makes the reader fall into the article quicker. It is a good article and I really liked it.
