On the day after the concert in New York City, there was a little extra bonus for all Kaizers fans: The Jackal played at Sjømannskirken’s celebration to honor the Norwegian national day. Alone on the piano (actually, the whole band was asked to play, but for some reasons that didn’t work out), without a real setlist, very spontaneously – or at least that’s how it seemed.

These are the songs we got to hear:

A great concert! Even though the Jackal pointed out several times that things might go wrong – normally, he doesn’t play the songs on the piano himself, and he hasn’t played them for a long time. And in addition, not all Kaizers songs work with only the piano. And yes, some notes did go wrong, but nobody minded that. That’s just the logical result: “I write such complicated songs by now that I cannot play them myself – which is of course great, to debut in New York City with such C moments …”

But the Jackal definitely didn’t need to worry about that! The audience was twofold. In the front, around the piano: American Kaizer fans who were singing along every single word (or rather every phone sequence *g*). In the back: Norwegians who wanted to see what the Sjømannskirke had organized to celebrate the day, but who hardly knew the songs. And in the end, everyone was excited about the concert! But it did seem like the Norwegians needed a while to wake up … =;-)

The one thing I found sad was that the Jackal didn’t take the time to come down for a bit after the gig, to give the fans the chance to say thank you for the concert(s). There was only a handful of people there, but it would have meant a lot to them. On the other hand, it is totally understandable of course that the work part of the day was done after the gig …

But at least the fans had the chance to see two concerts instead of only one – and as a concert junkie, I totally approve of that of course! *g*
