GREEN CARNATION's 'A Night Under The Dam' Concert Was An 'Amazing Experience'

Following last night's major concert event, "A Night Under the Dam", featuring GREEN CARNATION (plus support from THOM HELL and ADJAGAS), three of the national TV stations in Norway have been broadcasting live reports and features all through the day from what is now rated as one of the most spectacular concert events in Norwegian concert history by national music journalists, media and fans.

The concert took place on August 3, almost 700 metres above the ocean, several kilometers into the mountains, under a 30-meter tall dam built in 1939. With 65 million cubic of water above them, the band — together with guest artists and a string quartet — performed its entire "Acoustic Verses" album and other material in front of more than 500 enthusiastic people, some of them travelling all the way from the USA, Italy, Ireland, Germany and Holland. The entire show was videotaped and recorded for a live DVD.

Commented guitarist Tchort: "Wow. We are still stunned by last night's events. It was magical. The crew of Eikerapen Roots festival (one of the organizers together with Sublife Productions) had done such amazing work preparing the area for the arrival of all the people and rigged an amazing stage in the middle of the wilderness where very few people have ever been — except when they built the dam in 1939. Bulldozers were working for days to prepare roads and turning points for the bus loads of fans, and our light engineer Bjørnar Skutlaberg had done an amazing job designing the lights and make the area so magical. Ruben, our sound engineer [outdid] him self once again by producing an incredible sound on this memorable night. Not to forget the extremely lojal and dedicated GREEN CARNATION fans who travelled from around the world to be with us.

"I am a musician, but most of all i am a fan of music, but there is no way I would ever reach above the knees of the average GREEN CARNATION fan, and especially those who came to see us last night. I am so happy for them right now that the show turned out great and the weather was perfect. It must have been a amazing experience for them, just as it was for us."
