The Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona has brought together this Saturday night one of the most anticipated concerts of the year: that of Antònia Font.

For more than two hours the galácticos have been linking one song after another with hardly any pause, as if they were in a hurry to include the most outstanding pieces of their extensive repertoire.

Among the public there were so many people who followed them from festival to festival in their beginnings, as well as young people who had never seen them live and who had discovered them through their parents. Minutes before the concert, some attendees told ACN what they expected to experience inside the stadium. Maria, a young woman who met the group through her motherI was expecting older and newer songs: “They’ll play a little bit of everything.” Alba, on the other hand, has celebrated being able to go to the concert with her daughters, to whom she has said that they are “very excited”. “We followed them for years when we were very young and our daughters, unfortunately, had not yet been able to see them live,” he explained.

This Saturday was not the first concert by Antònia Font de Joaquim, who has detailed that he already saw them a few years ago when they played at the Gran Teatre del Liceu, of which he has “a spectacular memory”. For this reason, he was “super happy” with the reunion of the group “and being able to see them live”. Also Júlia has said that she had already seen them before “perhaps ten years ago quietly” in the main festival of Terrassa, so the show at Sant Jordi makes him “illusion”.

to all of them, Oliver has thanked them for having “continued to work in silence to maintain the flame of Antònia Font” and make it grow “much more”. “The best of the scenarios that I had imagined was to fill the Palau Sant Jordi”, he celebrated. He has agreed in statements to the Catalan News Agency (ACN) the vocalist, Pau Debonwho He has assured “exultant” that the reunion has “exceeded all expectations”. “We knew there would be people, but we did not expect such an intense reception,” he summarized.

The attendees who have lived the concert, in which they have almost played forty songs, like a great party.

This was the second time that the band led by Joan Miquel Oliver, Pau Debon and company performed in Barcelona after eight years of silence. The first was in the summer, during Primavera Sound, which lasted just over an hour due to the time requirements of the festival. On this occasion, the quintet from the islands have been able to enjoy more extensively their reunion with the public.
