NB! There will only be 200 tickets available for each concert, so If you want to go to this concert, hurry book your ticket!
For a limited time, so far till 1.12.2020 but this can be longer, the number of people in the audience is set to 50 in churches. In Bergen the number is only 20 and in Oslo all events are closed. Taran A/S has now started sending out emails to those who are among the first 50 who bought tickets.

Greetings from the artists 🙂

Some info about the Christmas concert published in VG 14.8.2020:

There might be some changes of concert places and limited tickets for sale.
Norway still have the restriction of max 200 people on an event.
Tor Arne Ranghus in Taran, says that despite the situation he will in one way or another carry out the three different Christmas tours his company organizes. One of the biggest challenges is the size of the churches they perform in. Some of them are small and down to 80-90 people, and he rather then have three concerts per day in the largest churches. There will be less concert places, he says. The calculated loss of income because of this for his company is more than 50 mill Norwegian kroner, and the situation also influence the financial agreements with the musicians.

    1. Hi there. This is a website about Alexander Rybak run by international fans. Alexander doesn’t answer here. If you need permission to use his music in commercials you need to contact his manager Mari Rustøy: Mari@artistpartner.no. A lot of fans have used his music as background music in private creative videos, and we haven’t heard that anyone has got in trouble doing that.
