These lyrics from Morten’s hit song ‘Brother’ became a common theme among the thousands of fans who gathered in Oslo two weeks ago for Morten’s final two concerts on the tour. It is always a special experience to see any of the guys perform in their home town, and fans traveled from around the globe to see Morten in Oslo on October 24 and 25.
On October 24, Morten was interviewed by TV2, and NRK set up a meet & greet for a group of nine fans whose story was shared in the Fan Corner in September; read the story of their meeting with Morten here.
Queues for Morten Harket concerts in Oslo are almost legendary. Fans were in line from around 6:00am on October 24, and by the time the doors opened, excitement was at a fever pitch. Here is the outside of Sentrum Scene just as the doors opened:
To ensure that the fans visiting from outside Norway felt welcome and included, Morten spoke mostly in English between songs. He was very relaxed and he responded to some of the comments and questions shouted from the audience.
During the encore, as a surprise for Morten, many fans raised flags from their native countries as part of a fan action arranged in advance.
On both nights, Morten ended his set with a cover of the Everly Brothers song, ‘Let It Be Me’.
