I’ve been waiting 8 years for this!

About eight years ago I laid my eyes on a very talented man. His voice had this magical way of waking up emotions in me and I knew that his voice had somewhat changed my life.

And the rest is history!

Well.. Sort of..

After that day there’s been countless hours of listening. There’s been a trip to London, just to see him. And there’s been a lot of waiting.

I’m talking about my love for Jason Mraz and his wonderful music. His music has been such a big part of my life for the last eight years. I’ve laughed, cried and wondered with his voice being a present in the background. I’ve waiting and hoping for one of his tours to bring him back to Norway so that I could see another one of his concerts. It took long enough, that’s for sure. So long that I had to jump on a plane to London a few years back, so that I wouldn’t miss out on his Yes! Tour with Raining Jane. It was so worth the trip by the way!

But my wish came true. A little while ago a Scandinavian tour was announced and I knew that I had to be there!

So Kirsti, her boyfriend and I got tickets and made a night out of it! Sunday came and we got dressed up and went for a few beers and laughs before the concert.

And then it was time!

We got good seats and when the room darkened, Jason got on stage and the music began, I was lost in emotions! He started off with a new song (that annoyingly enough hasn’t come out yet, and now I can’t get it out of my head) and it was so beautiful! There was a wonderful atmosphere in the room, and even though there were some songs that I missed hearing, it was still a night of musical magic! I laughed, I cried and walked out of there with a big smile on my face and my heart filled with love!

What a wonderful night! I’m so grateful that I had the opportunity to experience yet another amazing concert with one of my all time favorite artists, and that I got to share it with wonderful people! ❤

It was well worth the wait, but I really do hope we don’t have to wait as long for his next performance in Oslo 🙂


If you’re going to see one band live this year…

Let it be Muse!

One of the Christmas presents I got from my dear boyfriend was tickets for us to a Muse concert. I’ve been waiting and waiting for the day of the concert and yesterday that day finally came. A good friend of mine and her boyfriend were going too, as well as a couple of Simon’s colleagues. I got the set list from the other concert they played in Bergen from my friend Kathrine and I had the whole day at work to warm up to the concert and as the hours drew closer I got more and more excited about seeing Muse live for the first time.

We ate dinner together with his colleagues and had a couple of beers and off we went with smiles on our faces.

And my smile just grew and grew. When they kick started the show with “Unsustainable” the mood was set and I was grinning from ear to ear, singing and dancing like a child at Christmas.

I now know why Muse’s live shows always gets so great reviews. The energy, the music, the voices and the show. It was all in perfect harmony and the only thing I wish I could have changed was the temperature inside the concert hall, but that has nothing to do with Muse as performers.

I enjoyed every minute of it! And the highlights for me was “Unsustainable”, “Knights of Cydonia”, “Unintended”, “Survival”, “Panic Station” and “Starlight”.

If you have the opportunity to go and see this band perform I would highly recommend you do so!
