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”.
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.
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.
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!
