Magic Event: The Celebration Of Chapter III – 3T

Pepsipop 1996, during a hot summer I attend a music event with lots of artists including a concert at the end of 3T. I was with my friend Richard and after some hours I saw guys (no girls) just fade out and carry away. They looked more fit than I did. They could not handle the heat and I felt like I was almost knocked out as well, so I warn my schoolmate and walked to the neighbourhood of first aid post, nearby the stage.

TJ, Taryll and Taj Jackson came on stage and perform lots of songs from Brotherhood and if i remember it right also a beautiful cover of Michael Jackson’s “Human Nature”, but I had just one thing in mind “Can they maybe rap their songs?”.

At the end of the show, I was only surprised that I was stronger than all those muscled guys around us.

Like You could read at this website, I discovered the album “Chapter Three” a few months ago and it seems to be that someone wokes up that the Album needs some promotion and what for kind of promotion.

While I was asleep at monday morning I could meet the guys during their arrival at Schiphol airport. Unfortunately I was not watching my inbox and at the end there was not any other possibility as everyone noticed that the three nephews of Janet & Michael are in Holland for a couple of days.

Friday they had a “Up, Close And Personal”-event at RAI Amsterdam. A celebration of 20 years “Anything”, a song that is created with “Visions Of Love” in mind (Mariah Carey).

This month fans drove mad, when 3T tell that they had a second event the next day in Melkweg “A Celebration Of Chapter III” and I was there.

Fernando Halman present the show and tell the fans about his meeting with the guys, which gave him the family feeling, while he was at their home in 2015. The four asked the audience if they had questions for them and really everyone was taking good care that no one was ignored.

One of them asked about if the guys are doing a second season of “The Jacksons: Next Generation”, the real-life soap was ending up more sensational than they expected and if they do it again, than they wants to produce the TV-serie by themselves as they dislike the sensational way.

Fans get along very well and looks all very happy together. 8 of them gave that morning 800 US Dollars to the Dee Dee Jackson Foundation and that is lots of money, if you know that for 130 euro they enjoyed a soundcheck, a meet and greet and after this event an afterparty in Escape.

Some snippits of songs of the 3rd Album passed by including the story behind and ofcourse 3T performed live a couple of tracks. It seems to be that “Fire” is the ultimate favorite.

The brothers told us about their father Tito Jackson (a very friendly man that I met shortly while I was meeting Anastacia 2 years ago), that he helps them out with a bassline for a song and how Michael Jackson interrupt his rehearsal for a gig and take a plane to help them with a dance routine for “Anything”.

One of the other highlights was “Heaven”, a wedding song about TJ’s relationship with “the older” Frances. The song was not in time finished and he gets emotional while he was singing the lovesong.

It was not only “Chapter III”, but ofcourse some good old songs like “Stuck On You and “Anything” ends the magical moment of lots of 3T fans whom seeing their dreams came true and that reminds me of Pepsipop again. “TJ looks like Janet Jackson and sounds sometimes very “Michael Jacksonish”.

After the almost 2 hour during event, I had a short talking with a clever 3T-fan. What do you do when you meet your idol and are a manager of a beautiful perfume line called “Parfums Du Chateau Versailles”? Try to get some help of TJ!

The audience was very international and hope for everyone that 3T will do identical events in other countries as well!

Eric Benét & Brian McKnight – European Tour 2014

Do you remember Eric Benét? That guy that covered Toto’s”Georgy Porgy” with Faith Evans and once was married with Halle Berry. His 2012 CD “The One” has been re-released this month and I guess it is all because his European Tour with Brian McKnight, we all know him because pf his incredible duet with Vanessa Williams “Love Is”.

Social-Posting-Graphics-EuroTour

Both are travelling for 2 weeks throughout Europe. After Paris, Basel, Manchester and London they were last Thursday at the Melkweg in Amsterdam and I was there.

First 50 minutes Eric with backing singer Miss Jerry B. It was really a big surprise that Eric has such an amazing backing vocalist. She is from England and by the way a man at the keyboards has an incredible voice as well. They did an very interactive show with lots of flirting with the female audience. Songs like “Running” , “Georgy Porgy” and the last “Why You Follow Me” where briljant.

Eric Benet

After a very short break. Brian McKnight arrived and spread the word he is single to drive the women crazier than they already were. If you think it is just an R & B singer, who sang some ballads and look seriously. Than you had it all wrong! He is a truly stand-up comedian, that make a twist out of everything.

He asked a lady to come on stage and sang “Another You”, when she touched his bum, he replies with finishing the song with his hand on her bum.

Brian

For the germans, norwegians and swedish people that has the opportunity to go to their concerts the first week in February. Do not hesitate,just go! It is more than worth!
