TNT sold out the Musikleffen venue at Sandvika, Baerum and it was as hot on stage, as any I remember.
But what a great crowd; for them to be my home crowd was especially satisfying. Looking forward to playing the venue again later in the year. Thanks to Sverre Rokseth for doing a proper job on the promotion/production at the venue. Nice to see it done professionally. The concert deserved the extra press that it generated as follow up.
After a small show in Farsund on the south coast of Norway, I took a week out with my daughter in the UK. (Who has taken to singing and dancing in a big way; I wonder where that's heading...) After she wore me out completely, I headed back through Stockholm to Oslo to get ready for one last show in Trondheim at Uptown in Stjordal, before we head to Florida for the Monsters of Rock Cruise running to Nassau and the Bahalmas.
Jon Lovstad has been a running pro photographer with us for some weeks now, we met him at Age Sten Nielsen's New Years Eve party and got on famously with him. Jon covered a photo shoot with TNT at Sandvika, along with our beloved Vegar Bakken, my designer and kung fu master. We'll take one more shoot in Trondheim before we leave for the States.
TNT's new single is nearly completed in Denmark.
Neil Kernon will mix my new single, 'Girls In Norway', oddly enough in Japan, before we film a video shoot for it in the Spring for a summer release. I haven't worked with Neil, since he produced the best selling SHY album, 'Excess All Areas', in 1987. Great to be working with him again. He's been a very busy guy over the years working with everyone from Queen and Bowie to Dokken and Queensryche.
So, all in all, a very busy month. This week, I'm just gonna sit behind the mic and sing.
