Together with director Tom Sterri and musical director Øysten Lund Olafsen, they have dug deep into their musical pockets and can promise an evening filled with nostalgia, a high sing along factor and a rock foot guarantee. There will be goodies for both ear, soul and laughter muscles!
Alexander and Stephen have known each other for 18 years and have thus inspired each other to develop their talents. Among other things, it was Stephen who inspired Alexander to expand his repertoire from a pure classical musician to also play with the more artistic, and he was a strong driver due to Alexander’s “Fairytale” which won the Eurovision Song Contest in Moscow in 2009.
In “Alex & Ackles”, the audience will be taken on a musical journey through the careers of our two artists. There, the focus will be on new aspects of the artists both from the stage and privately. There will be bloated film music, Melodi Grand Prix, Elvis, Jahn Teigen and Erik Bye. In other words, varied and entertaining.
