The open-air concert
The concert was great. It was obviously a bit cold, but with a Christmas hat and warm jacket, Alexander managed well. During the concert he also went down to greet the audience and handed out signed cards and some other stuff. Pictures from the concert you can see below the video.

Alexander Rybak celebrated New Year’s eve at a beach disco.
The winner of the contest “Eurovision” Alexander Rybak decided to take himself on holiday and refused all offers to perform on New Year Eve.
– On New Year’s Eve I had a huge wish to go somewhere. Without thinking for too long and packing suitcases I took my passport and dashed to the airport with my beloved girl . We bought the tickets for the next flight – to the Southern coast of Egypt. Thus I welcomed 2012’s year in a hot country and I think this year will be hot as well for me, only 5 days but how nice. We saw in the New Year at the beach disco. We refused all excursions, we were just swimmimg and sunbathing, – said Rybak.
