Live at John Dee, Oslo Norway

Bjørn Riis - John Dee Oslo 2015

The first show as a solo artist was a huge success! We all had a great evening and the crowd – packed house – was magical and gave us all the inspiration and energy we could possibly wish for!

Oak (Norway) started the night with a great set. This was a first for many in the audience and they liked what they heard. After a quick change-over, we started with A New Day and played the whole Lullabies album. It was an amazing experience to play the new songs and listen to the awesome band behind me!

We did Airbag’s Greatest Show on Earth and Never Coming Home as well. The latter in a slightly different version than what we usually do with Airbag, featuring some beautiful guitar work from Ole.

For the encores, I’d invited Jørgen Hagen and Anders Hovdan from Airbag to join me on Colours and Homesick. The crowd went nuts and I think we played the longest version of Homesick ever!

A huge thanks to my band mates Henrik Fossum (drums), Ole Michael Bjørndal (guitar), Simen Valldal Johannessen (keys) and Vegard Sleipnes (bass) for doing a great job! Now we’re looking forward to play in Helmond (Holland) in a month!

We’ll be performing Lullabies in a Car Crash in my home town in February! Can’t wait to get back to John Dee – a venue I’ve played at several times with Airbag.

The evening will be very special indeed, with the fantastic Oak (Norway) opening the ball and I’m also extremely excited to announce that there will also be a small Airbag “reunion” so DON’T MISS OUT!
