Touring stories II

Belo Horizonte (City in Brazil) , pop music festival, huge stadium, pretty famous artists,

Radio anniversary , a crowded audience (over 30 thousands people).

Perfect opportunity for a heavy metal band like Angra to expose its songs and get new fans and fans from different styles Evertyhing was ok until our roadie got drunk with the cans of beer in the dressing-room. Alcohol abuse should be prohibited in stages and shows and not only on the road. The one who we are talking about, got so out of control which turned out to be expelled by the security due to his revealer breath and stump walking. The pass “All areas” was his alibi to keep him around. Everything was ready to our concert. The rest of the roadie team worked A lot and got everything prepared for us to get in the best conditions for the so well expected concert. We just had to wait Jota Quest and Pitty to finish their concerts and go for it. Everyone got despaired when the mentioned roadie, already with the prominent eyes and not having control of his own hands, start to disconnect all the cables of our equipment. In the best of his intentions to help us to finish his obligations.

Who could complain? He was out of things and went to the corner of the stage where the Titãs’ equipment was organized and polished. He pointed, aimed and threw out all the content from the cans already digested by the kidneys ... Late at night in the silence, empty stadium, amplifiers turned off, he was found on the rows of seats. He should be dreaming of a new job....
