Olsen on the way. From the 12th of September 2019 a half years ahead, the singer visits the songwriter, Allan Olsen, a total of 49 assembly houses around Denmark.
Allan says about the plan: I've spent most of my life passing through. On the way to Næstved from Slagelse, on the way from Ribe to Flensburg, or from Fåborg to Nyborg. Through small villages, but usually just pass by. A welcome sign, the moment after, a sign with thanks for the visit. And often when the speed is compulsorily lowered, we have said: – Wow, see the nice little assembly hall there. – Maybe you could …
Now you can now …
Because from now on, it is over to just passing by. – On the contrary. For half a year, Allan Olsen will only play for the majority of Denmark's population, namely all those who live in the small often overlooked cities.
There are more than 1000 assembly houses in Denmark, many of them thrive blooming, with lots of activity local events. But as the outskirts are challenged, some of them live a little too quiet life, which we think is a shame.
Allan Olsen, with 20 releases, hears thousands of concerts among our most acclaimed recognized songwriters, having toured everywhere since the mid-1970s. Most recently, he has settled on the prose, first with the bestseller, Random Strejfet from 2015, this year with the successor, the equally successful, Laksetrappen.
Among other things, the salmon staircase revolves around life as a singer, at the beginning of the career, in the small, humble places. And it is precisely the assembly houses in the very small towns that will form the framework for Olsen's extensive tour, from autumn 2019.
I am looking forward to coming out meeting people where they live.
The concerts take place exclusively in the assembly halls, in villages that Allan Olsen has never visited before.
