The legendary singer Jerry Lee Lewis was
on the 6th of March in Istanbul. It was a concert
organized by Bronx Production and our fan club
ElvisTurk was invited, too. We also had the honor to give
him a plaque thanking him for the contribution to Rock'n'Roll
music. The venue was the Hilton Convention Center and it was
standing room only. We were glad to see many of our members
to talk to some famous music people of our country.
The musicians of his group came to the stage
and played some numbers before Jerry Lee appeared and showed
that nothing has changed when it is all about rocking. The show
was good, better than expected if you already know that he
doesn't stay for long on stage...The audience welcomed the songs
-some very well known by Elvis fans- like Blue Suede Shoes,
Pledging My Love, Johhny B. Goode... He finished his performance
with two his immortal hits: Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On and
Great Balls of Fire...
As soon as he left the stage, with his
entourage, he headed to the car waiting for him. He politely
rejected the attempts of people for talking and receiving
autographs. He only stopped for us, listened to us, talked to
us, examined the plaque we were presenting and thanked. We
were lucky enough to shake hands with him. He left right then.
