Welcome to kaizers.konzertjunkie.com! This fansite keeps you updated on all current information about the band Kaizers Orchestra. You can find the latest news, translated news bits and articles, tour dates, and tour reports. Plus all the background information a fan wants to know, of course... so enjoy!

At a glance: What is going on in the Kaizers universe right now?

Kaizers Orchestra are history. On September 14, 2013, they played their last concert. Currently there are no plans about if and when they will be back. The band members expect a break for "many years", and they don't know if and - if yes - how they will continue after that break.

Violeta musical: Janove and Geir are currently working on a new Kaizers musical, together with playwright Christian Siméon, director Ladislas Chollat, and Michael Gregorio, a well-known French actor who will play the role of the devil. Everything is a work in progress and details haven't been finalized, but the ambitious goal is a big-time show in Paris in the fall of 2019!

What else ...? Most Kaizers have their own long- and short-term projects going on. The most visible are Janove's solo activities (so far, he has released two albums and is touring quite a bit) and Terje's band Skambankt (check out skambankt.konzertjunkie.com for all updates about them).

Currently, both Skambankt and Janove are playing some summer festivals - but we won't have to wait too long to see them again after the summer! Skambankt already announced a Denmark tour for the fall, and the one Stavanger gig scheduled for November will most likely not remain the only one.

Now Janove announced another tour as well, titled "Spiderweb riffs". This time, he will be touring alone without a band and play his solo songs in a stripped-down acoustic version. We'll also get some explanations about the songs and theatrical elements. And in addition, Janove will release an EP this fall, containing five new songs and acoustic versions of "Marlene" and "Et Hjerte Som Sloss". You can read more about it here. Sounds really exciting!

Plans for March 2019 already? No?

Wait, just a second, don't panic - this is not about the Violeta musical (that one is penciled in for fall 2019 at the moment). But it's still about theater and music, more precisely music composed by Janove Ottesen. At the end of March 2019, the theater play "The Mute" will premiere in Stavanger. What is special about this play is that it doesn't use any words, but only acting and music. Or, as orchestra leader Gaute Aadnesen says: "The Mute is a love story told without retorts, without words, music is the language. The performance is hard to explain beforehand, but will be magically self-explanatory when you experience it live." You can find more information in the press release here.

Currently, three shows are scheduled on March 29 and 30, 2019. The first two are close to sold out already. Get your tickets here!

Friday night was a big night in Bryne (or maybe even for Bryne?) - the Kaizers square was officially opened! Except for Terje, who is currently on tour with Skambankt, all Kaizers were there. They received diplomas from the mayor, and in return, they gave away the first Kaizer poster that ever existed. A local band played before the ceremony, and afterwards, there was a light show. Of course media covered the whole thing, so here are a few links to videos and photos:
