Fans fly over Europe skies to support Alexander Rybak’s return to Melodi Grand Prix in 2018: Stories from Oslo

No mistaking this silhouette on the big “reveal” day.

Nine years after his victory at the Eurovision Song contest in Moscow, it was revealed in January that Alexander would return to the Melodi Grand Prix (MGP) stage to compete for the chance to represent Norway again in the Eurovision song contest. This caused a wave of excitement amongst his fans, and some started making their plans immediately to travel to Oslo for the 10th March to be there to show their belief in his talent and support him at the live show.
Fans came not only from many parts of Norway, but many other countries including Germany, UK, Hungary, Russia, Netherlands, Belgium, Poland, Czech Republic and Estonia. And some of those fans have shared their adventures with us.

Anni Jowett’s Christmas concert report from Bergen 2015

Basic RGB

Oh, the weather outside was frightful,
but the company was so delightful.
And since we had some place to go
Let it go! Let it go, Let it go.

When we finally say goodnight,
How I’ll hate going out in the storm!
But, as he really hugged me tight,
All the way home I felt warm!

Now the tour bus is loudly revving,
me and dear Marian are still good-by-ing.
But, as long I love Stille Natt
I will go! I will go! I will go!

Oh, rain didn’t show signs of stopping,
So we caught some crabs for cooking
The lights are turned way down low,
Candles glow! Koselig Tid! Candles glow! Continue reading Anni Jowett’s Christmas concert report from Bergen 2015

Karlshamn all the way and back again,  a musical trip 15.07 – 17.07/2015 by Ebba Raab and Annika Petersson

I found out about the concert in Karlshamn in february/march by a friend who’s in the orchestra. I was still living in Newcastle by then and I did not know if I’d be able to go. But what a temptation it was! A while later I unfortunately had to move back home again but it meant that I could see the concert. Karlshamn is a place full of memories, my first concert took place there and a few months later I was there again. Continue reading Meeting Alexander in Karlshamn — a Fan Fairytale

Alexander Rybak gracefully took to the stage on February 23rd, coming way across the pond to make his Canadian debut, performing an exclusive one-time concert in Toronto’s Centre for the Arts in North York. North American Eurovision Song Contest and Rybak fans had a chance to come out of hiding, and out of hiding they certainly came, including a duo who flew in from Texas for the Norwegian violinist.

Report from concert in Tallin, Estonia. March 8th 2010

Report from an Estonian fan 🙂 

So, here is my report.

We arrived in Solaris center a few minutes before the signing session was to begin and went to the long line, where we met with another girl from Facebook, Kylcella. Alex arrived soon and teenager girls, who weren’t in the line, just stormed to him. Alex looked a bit tired at the beginning and had a kind of sad expression, even while smiling. But soon he looked much better and happier, so, it must be true, what he has always said about the signing sessions – that this is, where he gets his energy from. 🙂 The line was moving very slow because of those teenage girls, who weren’t standing in the line at all, but just pressing through. And the time went fast and the session was about to end – it was set from 16.45-17.30 only and the line was still pretty long . . . We realized with Kylcella, that we have to act more rude now, too, and pressed us through the crowd. The security was doing the best to protect him from fans, on the cost of politeness – they were rude to the crowd . . . happy, that Alex didn’t understand, what they were saying. :S Soon it was told to Alex, that the signing is over, but he looked at the long desperate line and said, he want’s that everyone gets the autograph.
