In a normal year, 2020 had been the year of the “Melodramático” tour, the fourth HMB record released at the beginning of the Covid 19 pandemic.
But 2020 was a year in which the opportunities to play live were very few and that is why “Eléctrico”, a program from Antena 3 and RTP recorded live on Capitol Hill, was for HMB the first and almost only chance to show the new live album:
ELÉCTRICO AO VIVO is now available on all digital platforms.
“During the year of 2020 the opportunities to play live were few, but this invitation that came to us to record Eléctrico woke up an urgency in us to make the most of the experience and we did so.
In the 3 weeks leading up to the recording, we rehearsed in detail the 5 songs of the Melodramatic album that we were going to play, something unprecedented for us, because with the full schedule we are used to, the reality is that we will usually fine-tune the setlist throughout the tour.
Here everything had to be matured on the day of the recording, so we worked hard and the truth is that the work paid off, because the 5 songs came out perfectly and represent, in a year without concerts, what we wanted Melodramatic to be live.
So we had to edit the concert so that everyone could hear the 2020 “tour”, which took place at the Capitol in Lisbon on the 2nd of July”
