September 14th, the very last “Siste Dans” concert in Stavanger – my 172nd concert and the only one without a real concert report. But a report really isn’t necessary, as the concert is/was streamed live on the internet. And I want to just enjoy the concert without having to take notes and think about what is worth mentioning in the report. However, I’ll append the setlist below after the concert of course – at least if someone writes it down. =;-)
There’s no doubt at all that the last concert will be terrific. Just like we know for sure that in the end, we’ll all be crying our eyes out, arm in arm. And that’s how it must be. You should quit while you’re ahead – even if it hurts.
Thank you so much, dear Kaizers, for ten years filled with fabulous music, awesome concerts and lots of experiences, adventures, and friendships that were all due to you guys. Thanks to everyone who was part of it and who I got to know; no matter if just very briefly here and there at a concert or by mail or again and again for years. Thank you for the amazing friendships that came about – they will persist, for sure!
I wrote down my conclusion and thank you in Stavanger Aftenblad already. I’ll try to translate the article as well within the next weeks. But first, it’s time for the last one.
We knew it right from the beginning: “Some day all of this will be over …” Of course I’d hope that this day was still in the far future. But it’s not. So we’ll cry together tonight and say good bye, before we start looking forward to the new projects that are coming. And – even though it might be years away – to a reunion concert.
We’ll meet again, don’t know where, don’t know when – but I know we’ll meet again some sunny day!
Thanks to Greg for the setlist!
