Groen Concert, Naestved, 27th of July 2013
“Dear Penis…I don´t think I like you anymore….”
KATO had been so sweet as to invite
some very special guests to his show at the Groen Concerts. So suddenly we also had to go to The Groen Concerts.
We packed a picnic, chairs and Nickie´s husband and off we went!
Finding a nice spot in the green field we enjoyed Donkey
Sound, Mads Langer, Carpark North, Medina and Lucas Graham before going to see the KATO show. Impressively enough so did all the other Groen Concert goers!!
Finally KATO announced the men in black (smooth way to describe their outfits this night), who
came on stage and played The Bongo Song, with a KATO remix and also their brand new song with Bjørnskov on the vocals: “DIMITTO (Let Go)”
After the show Bente spotted Uffe and Morten backstage and juuuust thought she would wave at
them as they passed by the fence. Suddenly she found herself wandering in the Open Air Urinal of the festival, surrounded by truck loads of peeing men, trying to get Safri´s attention. …..and they didn´t even spot their little fan, standing
in the Urinal. But maybe they couldn´t possible grasp that their little fan would stand there, pressed against the fence in the Mens Comfort station….
The things we do…. J
After Magtens Korridorer and McDonalds were on our way
back to Moen.
Randers Festuge, Randers, 17th of August 2013
“Take a walk on the wild side”
Ever since Bente got a driver’s license and a car, it is not often that we stay the night before driving home. At this gig, however, Safri was playing in the other side of the country at 11pm, so we found ourselves this cute little
cottage in the town of Randers to stay the night.
This was also the first road trip, which featured our brand new Safrizone streamer on our Safrizone automobile!
Nickie´s husband Jacob had been a sweetheart and bought us a huge amount of
bottled water (we would not dry out on this tour, that´s for sure) and some fruit. As we were driving down the Sealand highway with each a banana, Nickie correctly commented “Do you realize that this is the first time we are eating fruit on a Safri
Ten seconds later we found ourselves at a pit stop in Soerbymagle market to buy our usual stash of chocolates and coca cola. Little did we know that we had arrived at Whiskeybæltet in the west of Sealand, because only the very
wealthy could afford shopping there on a daily basis. Who could have known: Soerbymagle: The Dubai of Sealand.
Without any trouble we arrived in Randers and found our adorable cottage owned by some very sweet people. After relaxing in front of the
telly watching animal documentaries and Dr. Who (while doing a Safri prank on Safri fan Winnie, who was already in the front row) we headed toward the tent where Safri was to play at 11pm.
On our way to the tent, we had to cross some water. There were
four bridges. 3 of them you are allowed to cross as a pedestrian. One you can only cross in a car. As fate had it we found ourselves in front of the one bridge you were not allowed to cross on foot. But only a few meters away we could see the tent which in
a few hours would feature Safri Duo!! So we decided that we were not able to read Jutland warning signs and took a walk on the wild side.
Danish singer Sanne Salomonsen was on stage when we arrived giving one Hell of a great show, still having Morten
Woods on lead guitar. Thank you for that!!.
When she left the stage, an opening appeared in the front row, sadly not near our fellow Safri fans Winnie and Sonja and fan-in-the-closet: Lars. :-D. But this gave us the opportunity to play our legendary waiting
game: “Guess the Celebrity!!” Nickie had a hard time guessing Charlie Hunnam while Bente, embarrassing enough could not guess Michael Parsberg. Embarrassing…..
One bucket of Mojitos later (so we´ve heard) Safri Duo
arrived on stage wearing (exactly what we have guessed, them spending way too much time with DJ KATO): Black. Looking hot and spiffy, guys!! –Especially in the terrific blue light.
Rumors had it that no-one was allowed to take pictures, which
we decided to ignore, and already having walked on the forbidden bridge we decided to stay on the wild side and take pictures. No one intervened so we guess it was ok.
Also at this show, they had a bit of difficulties with the sound, but it luckily wasn´t
necessary to interrupt the show.
Morten is totally ready for ”Dancing with the Stars” should the producers choose to call, because he did a great dance routine during Kongsted´s set. We couldn’t quite determine if it was classic
or Latin dance steps, but he has our vote, that´s for sure!!!
During the show tour manager Camilla came to the front row to hand us the new fact files for The Safrizone, which Uffe and Morten have been so kind as to fill out.
