Tomorrow gives us two rocking options for our nightlife entertainment. The first is a collaboration between Greek singer Filippos Pliatsikas and local band Prospectus in Larnaca, while the second will have us spellbound with the Greek band Magic De Spell in Nicosia.
Plitsikas, who has been involved in music since he was 12 years old, was the main composer, lyricist and lead singer for the rock group Pyx Lax. When the band split, he began his solo career. To date, he has released seven solo albums and has collaborated with some giants in the world of music, such as R.E.M and Sting.
Now, one of the best voices in Greece will join one of the most popular bands on our island when they share the Savino Live stage. The seven-member band Prospectus are truly dedicated to Greek rock, and bring to life well-known songs that generations have grown up with. Their passion for rock is not just felt when they play; as the band say, “Rock is the truth within us, our perception of things around us, our belief, our struggle, the hope that will save our souls. Rock is what it is like to dream, to love, to shout out loud, to reach for something, to live all the moments that make up your life.”
Now to the capital, for a performance by a band who do alternative rock while riding the new wave of music. Magic De Spell will be putting a spell on us at Exandas Music Stage.
The six-member band came together in 1979. In 1981 Magic De Spell released their first album Nightmare. They became widely known in the early 90s when they did a cover of a classic Greek song by Giorgos Zambettas.
For nearly 30 years Magic De Spell have released song after song, and, with each note they play, they turn the alternative music waves into pure gold.
