 the article in romanian

“We’ve been waiting for you since ‘ 83″, this was the message of more than 50.000 of Red Hot Chili Peppers romanian fans that came for the concert in Bucharest.

Red Hot Chili Peppers performed for the first time in Romania, to the joy of tens of thousands of fans, who welcomed them  with warm and enthusiasm.

The tracks of the new album “I’m With You”, all the great hits: “Dani California”, “Can not Stop”, “Scar Tissue”, “Californication”, “By the Way”, “Give It Away” “Monarchy of Roses”, “Under the Bridge” , the professional way the band performed, being able to send their energy from the stage to their public, the warm welcome they were greeted by those more than 50,000 people gathered in the National Arena Bucharest, have made 31.08.2012 evening to be a special one, full of enthusiasm.

When I say warm welcome, I mean not only the applause but the songs sang together with the band, by almost the entire arena ( click on the photo below… example….NICE! )

This fact, created an impressive atmosphere and the band showed, by the way they exprim their thanks, that were also impressed (Flea had tears on his eyes that could be seen on the monitors :) ). And all of this, not only because they are not feeling to be loved worldwide and they are not singing with their fans all tracks but, simply believe that they found in Romania more true fans , more excitement and more ” amaising” atmosphere (as Chad said while throwing the drum sticks to the fans) than they expected to find here.

Red Hot Chili Peppers is one of the most popular alternative rock bands on the planet, who managed ( nearly every year since 1983 when they released their first album ) to reinvent their style and image. They released 10 albums so far and one of the reference is “Blood Sugar Sex Magik” in 1991, which meant, at that time, the introduction of a new sound, different, for the alternative rock world. Their most recent album is “I’m With You”.

It was the first time I’ve been on Bucharest National Arena stadium and I was glad, thinking that finally, there is a good place for this kind of events (with more or less good parts,  but overall, I liked it!).

Red Hot Chili Peppers concert is the first one organised here.

With a capacity of over 50,000 seats, the Bucharest National Arena  was recently completed and was built in the place of the National Stadium (built in 1953).
The first sporting event which was hosted here was the Final of  UEFA Europa League  2012.
Bucharest National Arena  is an UEFA Elite Stadium category (Category 4).

It is also a place for organizing concerts as RHCP (I hope that the technical part was well organized so, there are not too much damage, in order to let other concerts to be organized here), giving  a very good framework, which is very important for the success of this such of event.

The concert organizers have well managed to cope with all the people gathered there.  I suggest only that, the waiting time until the concert starts, could be used in a more useful, effective and educative way by the marketers.

There were many sponsors and corporate companies who have used this opportunity for advertising. But only a part of them have managed to detach with a few actions that could indeed, get results like increasing the brand awareness ( those actions, which were customized for the target of the concert, being in the same time useful to consumers ).

So…. there have been seen and heard from the lawn .

From here, has been also seen very well, that long and red banner that was carried by the fans arms (in a good timing) until it arrived in front of Red Hot Chili Peppers, with the message:

“We’ve been waiting for you since 83” .
