The Fiddler from Norway: Alexander Rybak comes to Toronto !

   First off, before I go any further and begin my endless crazy fan girl mode, I will be breaking up this review into two parts, the first being the actual review of the concert, from the time i got there up until the meet and greet. The second part will be of a more personal nature, like, inspiration, motivation and….most importantly..FAN GIRLING! 🙂 ****Just a friendly warning**** You are warned, that from this point on there will be excessive fangirling, reader discretion is highly advised! Enjoy ! 🙂

Fan report about her trip to Norway by Emily Boycott July 6th – 8th 2012

Report by a British Facebookie about her journey to Norway for the Tønsberg Summer show with Alexander Rybak , July 7th 2012

Thursday 5th July

Mum and dad drove me to Birmingham late at night, I was so excited, I actually exploded (At least, that’s what dad blamed the nosebleed on!) Lillian picked me up from there, and I said goodbye to my parents before we embarked on an all night long trip to John Lennon airport where to my amusement there was actually a yellow Submarine… We had a cup of tea and a doze before meeting Anni and Dave at about 5am. Currently lacking sleep and over excited – funny combination!

 

I can see Norway!!!

 Friday 6th July

We got to Torp at about half Nine, I decided that Norway looks like someone put a country in a blender with all the islands and what not, but so pretty and awesome!  After a short train vs. taxi dispute, we chose the latter.

A Facebookies report from the concert in Harstad. Sept.2nd, 2010


by Sara Anja, Norway

I have already written so many bits and pieces several places about Yesterday and you have seen the vids, so you have already got most of my report. But I will try to write something, anyway. After the Tønsberg meeting, surrounded with facebookies, it felt a bit lonely to go to a concert all by myself, but I was really looking forward to it. All your good wishes were with me in my heart, and I was thinking about all my friends a lot. I didn’t know how the concert would be like, since it included an orchestra and other soloist as well. But I hoped for at least 4-5 Alex songs. I entered the concert hall, witch was filled with people of all ages. Continue reading A Facebookies report from the concert in Harstad. Sept.2nd, 2010

Alexander’s arrival in the airport of Lodz

“Greeting Sasza in Lodz Airport¨
 
I did not have much time to prepare for this meeting as it was announced at 11.30 that he would arrive in Lodz at 13.20. So I had to hurry up, pack for Warsaw (as I was going to Meet & Greet), run to the shop to buy small gift for the Fiddler and then at the bus stop, which fortunatelly is close to my house. I had a bit more than an hour for all of those, but I managed 🙂 I was supported by other Polish fans and my boyfriend 🙂

It was my first Facebookie meeting and my first time meeting Alex… so please forgive me if this report is too long and too full of nervous ramblings. My original report is about 4 times longer Ha ha…but I have toned it down, and just included the Alex bits.

FRIDAY (T= -1): The sun was shining on the glistening water of the Tonsberg fjord, and ten happy Facebookies were taking a stroll along the promenade after a successful shopping trip to buy the latest Alexander Rybak CD, (currently unavailable in the UK ,except on import). our hearts were light, the air was giggly.

They were people from 20 countries, as far away as Ukraine, Russia, Greece, Turkey, Canada, Slovakia, Italy, Germany, Poland, Czech  rep. Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, France, Switzerland,  UK, Lithuania, Latvia and of course – Norway. Many of them arrived several days before the concert, to have a good time together.  Some of them had been to concerts of Alexander before and some of them, had met eachother before. But for some, it was their first concert and their first Facebookies-meeting.  Alexander and his management were told about the big Facebookie-meeting, that was being planned and they felt excited about it and offered to arrange a special event, a ” meet and greet ” for the facebookies, with all the artists of the concert. It was planned to take place in the evening, after the concert, but due to some change of plans, the ” meet and greet” was moved to the afternoon, before the concert.
