After thirty-four years, the legendary Hungarian band has come back to Prague to electrify its fans.
10.6.2005 | Ivan Novák, Mix.cz
It has already been incredible thirty-four years since the greatest asset of the Eastern bloc rock music – the Hungarian band Omega – appeared on the stage of smoky Lucerna hall. The band with a long-haired frontman as the only one from the Eastern bloc won through and managed to attract attention of rock music fans across the whole Europe. There was really a lot to recall in Lucerna hall. Back in the 70s, Omega was supported in Lucerna by Radim Hladík’s band Blue Efekt and the same formation with an excellent guitar player started off the Thursday evening again. On the stage, Hladík and his Blue Efekt in its present form produced an impressive music spectacle during which they revived such well-known songs as Kuře v hodinkách (Chicken in the watch) or Sluneční hrob (A sun grave) which met with a stormy response of the audience. Hladík not only repeatedly used his famous violin bow but he also presented himself in a solo accompanied only by the drummer. Three quarters of an hour lasting performance warmed up the listeners for the main star of that long music evening. Omega showed up on the stage after a fifteen-minute break. Exulting girl-fans have become older as have the musicians themselves. It however in no way reduced the fans’ vitality nor the vigour of the musicians. Before the main frontman Janos Kobor appeared on the stage, the Lucerna hall was filled with guitar and keyboard tones harmonized with a scenic video-projection. As in the old days, he ran around the stage, wielding the heavy microphone stand and casting about his white hair. As expected, Omega brought the most important songs of its repertoire on the stage. They ranged from catchy Budapest waltzes up to extensive rock compositions. The musicians played with relish their doubled guitars in the formation as well as two keyboard parks that produced sounds reminding the bygone fame of rock dinosaurs like the Yes. Had it not been for the language barrier, the audience would have sung many songs with the band. 34 years ago Omega shook the walls of the Lucerna hall. This time, the Prague’s music tabernacle was not ready to be demolished. The hall was rather full; nevertheless, quite a high ticket price prevented the hall to be crowded. The event, with a number of extras, took approximately two hours but the evening was not over. All the visitors could move to the after-party in Lucerna Music Bar where the evening reached its peak and finished at late hours and where audience could meet the performers personally. The concert fulfilled more than just commemorating the glorious era of classical Hungarian rock players. The evening passed in a pleasant, happy atmosphere which could be properly enjoyed by everybody. Related photos Prague concert photos
