music on the roof

one of the most amazing venues for open air concerts this summer must have been the roof of the norwegian opera where i work. the stage was floating on the fjord while the public was sitting on the roof. we had a couple of wonderful shows there, amongst others with the norwegian band big bang (who gave the expression stage diving a whole new meaning... the fjord was really cold at that point!) and a charming al green.

for me, however, the absolute highlights were two evenings in a row, with the goodbye show of the folk rock act gåte and the swedish singer/songwriter lars winnerbäck. while i have admired the latter for a long time (and what i loved best with his show were all the old songs and classics he played. wonderful.), i had never heard gåte before, and was very pleasantly surprised - two hours of waiting in the rain was surely worth the bombastic light show and explosive music that followed:







i really don't think i've ever seen a light show better adjusted to the music than here. i'm still amazed.

@ out of the mist: thanks for stopping by here at my blog. however, i don't follow blogs just because i'm asked to, and i don't really like the practice of bluntly asking somebody to follow a blog. as a reader i stay if i like something and i leave the page if i don't like it there.
