The Scottish band Texas, led by Sharleen Spiteri, ran through their body of work in front of an enthusiastic crowd in the Nagüeles Quarry
One of Scotland’s most widely acclaimed rock bands, who made their debut in the late 1980s, stepped out on stage in the Nagüeles Quarry last Tuesday as part of Starlite Marbella to offer a trip back in time to a crowd of 40-somethings more than ready to relive some 90’s rock. Led by the charismatic Sharleen Spiteri, Texas put on a show that rocked the crowd with the unmistakable chords of songs like ‘I Don’t Want A Lover’, ‘Summer Son’, ‘Halo’ and ‘Everyday Now’.
With a great rapport, Sharleen connected with the crowd, chatting between each song, and keeping them dancing from start to finish. The only time she sat down throughout the concert was to play the piano for ‘The Thrill Has Gone’, the song from the 1989 album, ‘Southside’, that was an international hit.
Among the hits from the 90s, we heard tracks from their new album ‘Jump On Board’. ‘Let’s Work It Out’ got the crowd bopping again and ‘Tell That Girl’ paved the way for the end of the evening with several of the group’s better known songs from that distant decade of the 90s: ‘In Demand’, their unmistakable and maybe, last big hit, ‘Inner Smile’ and the long-awaited ‘Say What You Want’. But the final farewell from the Scots came with a tribute to the king of rock, a cover of Elvis’ ‘Suspicious Minds’ brought the curtain down on the festivities at the quarry that for two hours returned to the 1990s.
