This concert was very special for me because I have gone to several Rock & Pop concerts in my short life, but this one was the first one and one of the best ever. I remember that I went with my girlfriend (of those times) and another woman friend of mine. In these days I was fourteen years old, and a short time ago I became a Cyndi's fan (Thanks to my girlfriend). We were at the Theatre almost four hours before the concert begins. The concert was supposed to begin at 9:00, but Cyndi wasn't on the stage till 9:40. I remember that the band came on stage one or two minutes before Cyndi, and when she did it all the audience screamed. She had a flute in her hands and after give us a sweet smile she began to play the tunes of "That's what I think". This was an unknown song for me, but with the energy that Cyndi transmitted and its easy Rhythm & Lyrics I already loved it. After came the first great moment of the concert for me. I couldn't believe it when she began to sing "I had to scape, the city was sticky and cruel...". It was like she activated a bomb inside me that exploited with the chorus. I felt the adrenaline in all the audience singing "I drove all niiiiiiiiight..." and was incredible. Cyndi danced all over the stage (as in the old times) and she finished with a chaotic scream and moves, finally falling down to the floor. All the audience (2500 people) was really excited and began to scream "Cyndi,...Cyndi,...". I never liked too much "What's going on", but as the "True colors" album have been sold out in Chile since 1991 it was a pretty surprise for me to see that she sang it with "Iko Iko" as only one song. After she talked us a long time about the song that she was going to sing. As she knew that we doesn't understand English, she called an interpreter. She sang "Dear  John" with Catherine, and for me it was one of the most beautiful songs of the night. I remember that all the songs after "Dear John" were absolutely unknown for me, and I was getting a little bored when Catherine R. sang "Simple not easy" but everything changed when a very known drum was played. TRUE COLORS!!!!- said my girlfriend, who was really hysteric. And It was. It was like the song recharged my batteries. When Cyndi was performing "True colors", somebody held her hand and didn't let her to go. I could see Cyndi very confused, and then she began to scream "Hey, hey, hey". The people left her. I remember that I was really scared because I didn't know Cyndi very well, and I thought that she could be like a kind of "MADONNA" and left the show in any moment. But I was wrong, she is not a "Super Diva" as Madonna. She's very sweet, and after "True colors" she said to the person who held her hand: "I'm sorry, but I'm really strong. I can probably pick you up". When she was saying that, two guys jumped on the stage. The Cyndi's body wards came to take the guys out of the stage but Cyndi stopped them and held and kissed the "Surprise Jumpers". (I really admire them, because they jumped from almost three mts. high) All the audience screamed. Then she performed a great semi-acoustic version of "She Bop" that I enjoyed a lot followed by a strong "Money changes everything" that was like another bomb in the audience. All the people danced and jumped in a great and funny disorder. Cyndi did it too. She looked very happy and having fun. I forgot that this beautiful trance should finish sometime, but she reminded it to me when she said "Gracias, buenas noches" (Thank you, good night) and went out. I thought that the concert was over, but after a couple of minutes she was back singing "Hey now" the single of the moment (#14 in Chile). Then she sat down and said "I don't know if you remember this one" and a sweet melody sounded in the theatre. It was

"Kindred spirit" that after a little time was being a little different, finally being "Time after time". This slow version of "TAT" was really special. All the people sang it as an hymn and there were a lot of girls crying. I was very conmoved too. After she went back of the stage and she was there without singing, just looking us. Slowly began a very unknown song for me, but so much beautiful. It was "I'm gonna be strong". After this "very slow" part of the show she reanimed us with a potent and ultra-electric "Change of Heart" that as a very extended version kept us dancing a long time... till she was gone.
