Eric Clapton & Ibiza

The summer of 1977 started the tradition of the biggest rock and roll artists coming to Ibiza to play live. It began with Eric Clapton, but his famous 1977 concert almost didn’t take place concert because almost ended up shipwrecked.

he former Cream guitarist was holidaying on the Costa Azul a couple of days before his Ibiza concert. He was accompanied by Patty Boyd, ex-wife of his ex-friend George Harrison, who Clapton would end up marrying in 1979, after making peace with the great ex-Beatle.

He was also accompanied by his musicians, their partners, and several friends. A storm surprised them when they set sail for Ibiza. It was the authentic journey from hell and afterwards Clapton decided that women would never travel again on his tours.

Classic Hollywood Cars

Classic Hollywood Cars

By Laura Martinez

 

When a vehicle eclipses the actors in a movie and it becomes the real star, you know that you’re looking at a classic Hollywood car.

One of the sagas with most pedigree in the classic car scene, is the James Bond franchise. Their legacy started with that Aston Martin DB5 in ‘Golfinger’ driven by 007. Without any added frills, the DB5 was a work of art in itself, but it was the special effects that made that piece of fine machinery, one of the most admired by fans of the “gentleman” way of life.

The long list of gadgets in it included a machine gun, a smoke screen and ejectable seats. One of the few Astons used in these films, was sold some years ago for a mere $4.6 million. Its popularity is such, that the manufacturer of this legendary automobile has reopened production and is launching 25 units of this vehicle as a limited-edition series, sold for $3.5 million a pop.

The yellow Ford Coupé in ‘American Graffiti’ directed by George Lucas, is an ode to his memories of the California automobile culture back in the 60s. The cast included Young promises of that time. A Young Harrison Ford, Ron Howard and Richard Dreyfus, but none of them were as memorable as this Deuce Coupe; Probably the most recognizable in the world.

But if we’re talking about true icons that deserve legendary status, we must mention John Delorean’s DMC-12 in ‘Back to the Future’. Its futuristic aesthetic and cinematographic performance elevated this car’s status to a literal time machine. This Steel stunner was the real star of the big screen. What would Marty McFly do without his Delorean?

Someone who never disappoints with his automobile choices is Quentin Tarantino: The convertible Volkswagen Ghia in ‘Kill Blill vol.2’, The Pontiac Lemans in ‘Reservoir Dogs’, the Mustang Grande in ‘Death Proof’, the Chevrolet Chevelle in Pulp Fiction… I could go on. One of the most recent signings, co-stared in ‘Once upon a time in Hollywood’ alongside Brad and Leo: The white ’66 Cadillac Deville. You might remember it from another of the director’s releases, as it was also driven by Michael Madsen in Reservoir Dogs. Madsen is also the owner of this Hollywood beauty and is a real classic car geek, who was more than happy to lend it to the production team, also adding a fresh lick of paint and restoring its fine interior.

At Concept we also drool over classic cars and our own ones have already made star cameos in several photoshoots and music videos. The ’65 Ford Mustang Cabrio that greets you at Romeo’s motel & diner, is the Mustang model that has the most appearances in the history of cinema. Ours on the other hand, has made an appearance in a Satánicas Majestades music video, The Rolling Stones “Criss Cross” video clip filmed between London, New York and Ibiza amongst other locations. Our ’89 Ford Lincoln Limousine that drove Sylvester Stallone to a premiere in Madrid, is the host of your rowdiest nights and is available to hire for any occasion you can think of: an express wedding at the Romeo’s wedding chapel, an extra special birthday or a wild bachelor or bachelorette party.

The 54 blue Cadillac Deville parked at Cubanito belonged to the Roy Orbison and evokes nostalgic Habana vibes, subsequently becoming a popular Instagram star. Our latest aquisition? A ’77 Cadillac El Dorado converted into a Jacuzzi -Baptized The Caduzzi- that awaits you at Grand Paradiso, ready to soak in with some bubbles.

The Ibicencan artist Marcos Torres auctions one of his artwork pieces in aid of the NGO by José Andrés in helping feed Ukraine

The Ibicencan artist Marcos Torres auctions one of his artwork pieces in aid of the NGO by José Andrés in helping feed Ukraine

Source: Noudiari

The Ibicencan Marcos Torrer, who’s work as an artist and designer are highly regarded on the island and internationally, has donated one of his artwork pieces to be auctioned in aid of a nonprofit organization that works with those affected by the conflict in Ukraine, providing food to communities there.

“Like many of you, I’m tired of being heartbroken by the images coming from Ukraine, so I’ve decided to hold an auction”, stated the artist on his Instagram. Torres confirms to Noudiari that all the proceeds obtained from the auction will be directly donated to World Central Kitchen, an NGO founded by the popular and philanthropic Spanish chef José Andrés.

Torres values and applauds the absolutely “incredible work done directly in the area of conflict” that this organization is carrying out, offering food to the migrants and people who are suffering from Russian oppression inside their borders.

The art piece that’s being auctioned, Holy Marilyn, is very dear to the artist, as he’s only created 5 reproductions of the print and has never been available to purchase before.

The bidding, that will be done directly on the post on Instagram until the 14th of March at 12 o’clock, starts at 500 euros (there are already some bidders that have started with that number)

Whoever wishes to bid, can do it in the comment section of the post.

The highest resulting bid will be announced on Monday, and the person who made it will be contacted and sent the art piece with no delivery cost.

Bob Marley & Ibiza

The date was 28th June 1978. This was the night when Bob Marley and his Wailers played in Ibiza’s bullring for the first time on the island (and the penultimate time in Spain). The King of Reggae visited the island at the peak of his powers. The evening before the concert, they were interviewed at the house they were staying at in Sant Carles. Àngel Casas and Carlos Tena chatted with the Jamaican in the interview broadcast by Televisión Española. After that it was time for the most memorable concert in Ibiza’s history.

The venue was the, now demolished, bullring and each ticket cost a thousand pesetas. Although it wasn’t sold out, the concert was attended by several thousand lucky souls who will always be able to say: “I was there, and I was a witness of the magic of Bob Marley”.
