Stockholm’s Galejan at Skansen hosted the last night of the Benny Anderssons Orkester Tour 2011 on 30 July. Reports have been coming through of another great tour night.
If you had seen BAO before, there were not too many surprises but the ones that stood out for me were hearing Kisses Of Fire and the Happy Hawaii/Why Did It Have To Be Me? mash-up! Also O klang och jubeltid was simply beautiful.
It really dawns on me when I witness BAO that it is a truly unique show. Here we have a worldwide pop/rock megastar playing the folk-influenced music he loves with a bunch of mates in front of a relaxed audience, most of whom are actually there to dance!
Please do feel free to share your BAO experiences in this thread and have a look at a few photos takein in Leksand. More to follow…
