NUCE students went wild at a rock concert CKX 2017

On Sunday evening November 26th 2017, a night rock concert took place on campus of the National University of Civil Engineering. This is an annual event called “CKX”, this year it attracted nearly 8,000 students as rock fans and was watched by tens of thousands of viewers as televised on VTC3.

The National University of Civil Engineering has been known as a cradle of rock music in Hanoi. Many bands became famous as they started to play rock music at the University. On March 26th 1995, The Wall played its first show in G3 hall on the NUCE campus.

CKX 2017 went back to the theme “Limitless sound” with a more professional and better prepared investment in the quality of sound with participation of top rock groups. Hereby it brought a hysterical atmosphere to the audience and made a deep impression on everybody who attended or watched the show.

The opening part of the show was the performance of two bands from the two clubs at the NUCE – TCM Music Club and NUCE Guitar Club with familiar hit songs, such as “The Red River Bohemian Melody”, “Long Trips”, “Soul of the Rock”, “Colors”, “Nationwide Arms”, etc. The melodies were quite well-known, however they were mixed in different ways, and they warmed up the show from the very beginning. The two performances reconfirmed that rock music is a “specialty” of the NUCE students.

Then, other famous rock bands took the floor, such as Five Arcs, Sand, Re-Cycle and HUB. Each band showed clearly the style with the lyrics and the sounds of guitar and drum. They stirred up the atmosphere of the concert in different ways. As a result, they received long-standing ovations from the audience.
