Tuesday, 26 Oct. 1993 / Festsaal Messe Basel
In 1993: 65 years old – 22 hits – 100 million records sold – one name: Fats Domino! Not only nostalgic fans sing along when the hits «I’m Walking», «Blue Monday» or «Blueberry Hill» come on the radio. Fats Domino was more than just a superstar. He was a symbol for a way of life that was perceptible in all of his performances. From schoolchildren to their grandmothers, no one stayed sitting. He did not set any new music trends at this concert, he delivered solid big band music: He was the piano player and singer with the big round belly and he was still an absolutely brilliant entertainer.
