Karolinelunden, Aalborg, 29th of August 2014
I saw that movie. It was a horror flick.
event you couldn´t really book tickets. It was all about getting inside the venue before the limit of people allowed inside was reached. Aalborg being in the other side of the country it would be really annoying if we had to go all the way home again,
because the venue was full. Also, it was the last Kato vs. Safri show, so…..no discussion: we had to get in. So we pulled a sweet string called Camilla, who secured our entry.
We had planned to meet up with Winnie and Sonja in Odense and travel together the rest of the way to Aalborg, having a pit stop at Carl´s Jr for lunch (and clothes shopping in Føtex as it turned out)
When we reached Aalborg things became complicated, because we really didn´t know where to go. Karolinelunden was an old abandoned amusement-park, so we drove to the ticket-office, where we saw some posters for the event. At a café right next
to the ticket-office we asked about the concert and were told, that we were at the right spot. Well, look at us!
Us being the first ones there, we decided we had time for chai latte and cake at the café.
Now, us being the first ones
there should have set off our alarm bells, because we are seldom the first ones there….
When no one else seemed to show up, Winnie reached her patience-limit and asked again, if this was the right spot?
And suddenly it wasn´t.
It was at the old amusement park! You should have seen the little Safri fans get their butts in gear. Especially Winnie and Sonja, who reached a critical level of hysteria
Getting outside we could now see the huge line of people waiting to be let in to Karolinelunden, but the people at the entrance were quite efficient, and we quickly entered Karolinelunden. Then Winnie was
told, that she couldn’t take pictures with her fancy camera, which sent her over the edge. At one time we dreaded she would turn green and grow out of her clothes!!!
Walking in an abandoned amusement park is pretty eerie, we can tell you. Luckily no clown in the sewer. Yay!
Stopping for latté and cake meant that we had to settle for the 2nd row, luckily behind
some small kids, we could scare off -, see above, that is!!!
When the concert began Kato told us, that 500 people had to settle with hearing the show from outside the park, because the attendance had reach its limit!!! We sent an extra thank you
Then Kato went totally ape on one of his music devices, which, sadly for the device and his sound tech, suddenly didn´t work. Lucky for the sound guy Kato only jumped and stamped on the device. We bet that´s the last time he
checks out ladies instead of the sound gear?
The good spirit DID return shortly after, and Kato even showed indulgence, putting the device back in one piece, and using it in a song.
The show took a steamy turn towards the end. Uffe´s end.
A fan in the audience screamed, and Kato commented that she was probably screaming at Uffe´s nice-looking behind, which Kato
himself had trouble taking his eyes off. In fact, as Kato told us, he had fainted many times when first meeting up with Uffe in the beginning of their collaboration.
Kato…..such a sweet talker.
After this last show, we went backstage to hand over birthday presents for Morten, and chocolate for Uffe. Winnie and Sonja had also brought chocolate for the rest of the artists, which especially seemed to please Kenno
from Djâmes Braun, who apparently has a mighty sweet tooth?
Uffe handed us some drumsticks, he had played with at this last show, and suggested we could use them in a competition? Good idea, Uffe. Or maybe we´ll just keep them to ourselves
Then Sonja, who luckily stayed awake, no thanks to the other persons in the car, who were all out cold, drove us to Odense, where we
said our goodbyes and thanks for another great tour.
We look forward to many more Safri adventures and concert no. 100!!! Bring it!!
We hope that the adoption papers for Ilang has come through ´till then
