Sorgen dag

Fik denne besked fra et af verdens bedste band – RUNRIG – om at de stopper med at spille koncerter.

After 45 wonderful years in the music business, we have finally taken the very difficult and heart wrenching decision to pull the curtain down on our long career, in 2018. We are now simply at that point in time where longevity and circumstance have to be balanced against what is right for the art and the muse. We feel that the time for this decision is now upon us, and we embrace it with a sense of positivity, but tinged with understandable sadness and reflection.

It was always inevitable that this day had to arrive, but it’s arrival does not make our situation any easier.

Taking the decision in 2015 to record the final studio album, The Story was a positive decision for us all. It was musically cathartic, creatively exciting, and it brought our recording career to a completed circle. It was very much a closing statement. We want to do the same for the live side of the band. To leave it unresolved would be a negative: to complete the circle with a series of farewell shows and celebrate our story together is the positive, meaningful, Runrig thing to do.

Will Runrig ever perform in some way again? – no one can say, but a door can be left open for any possible future, creative ventures. It would not be possible for us, as musicians, to stop writing, to stop recording and to stop the joy of live performance, but Runrig in its present form, as we’ve known it for 45 years, will come to an end.

Runrig the brand will of course continue and there are various exciting legacy projects in the pipeline and in the planning. We will leave information about all of that for another day, but for now, we are in a position to announce our series of farewell concerts for 2018. Entitled The Final Mile, the tour will take in shows in Germany, Denmark and England throughout the early summer, culminating in August with The Last Dance, the big final farewell concert in the heart of Scotland. The venue, City Park, Stirling, below the castle ramparts, is one that has newly been created for live performance events.

Fredagsmusik

Lang tid siden vi har haft fredags musik herinde.

Dette nummer hørte jeg i dag – ret nostalgisk.

Foo Fighters

Har lytte lidt til det nye album fra Foo Fighters.

Det hedder Concrete and Gold.

Det er et rigtigt godt album de har fået stykket sammen. Jeg synes det minder om en blanding af Roger Waters og Muse – Og det er meget positivt ment.

Der er måske ikke de helt store ørehængere, men der er heller ikke nogle numre der falder igennem.

Så helt sikkert et album jeg kommer til at høre flere gange.

Coldplay

Var til Coldplay i Parken i sidste uge.

Selv om jeg aldrig har hørt dem så meget, så var det en rigtig god koncert. De frostår at skabe liv og stemning.

Her er lidt fra koncerten.
