A concert review by Karin Christiansen:

I had a great time – again. SAILOR is in my opinion the best band in the world. They gave us a fantastic show in Brande.
We (my husband Franck and I) started from our home at about 3. o’clock p.m. We arrived at Brande at about 5,15 p.m., where we met with my younger sister Connie. It was her first SAILOR concert. 15 minutes later the doors were open, and we could find our seats. The venue was a big sports centre, and we later found out, that the acoustic was terrible. The evening started with some food and a local band playing some music.
Little Richie was the first to play, and he did a small show of about 20 minutes.
Then it was time for SAILOR. It took a while before they started, because there were some major sound problems. SAILOR had arrived so late, that they had no chance of a soundcheck. Mark did a wonderful job, and he’s not at all to blame, that the sound was not the best. Right in front of the stage (that’s where I usually am at a SAILOR concert), the sound was fine, but anywhere else it was not perfect. Also SAILOR had no Nickelodeon on stage, it was still lying in the boxes, but again – what is best: a better sound or a Nickelodeon? Mark had been very busy!
But they did a wonderful show. It’s marvelous Phil! Even though the audience clearly had not come to here SAILOR (most of them were there, because they had nothing better to do! – it seemed), you did a fantastic show. Of course we got all the well known songs as usual, and then they also played "Stay The Night". It’s one of my favourites, and I’m very happy they played it yesterday. Phil’s got some new "maracas" (a lemon and an orange…), they sounded OK, don’t know where the sound came from. We had a very special ending of The Full Monty. Before the ending there were 2 ladies in a very good mood just in front of the stage that clearly never had seen SAILOR performing the Full Monty before! They were very impressed, perhaps that’s why Henry dropped his pants? (Always expect the unexpected, eh…). I really enjoyed "Wooly Bully", Ollie you have the most beautiful voice! And Ollie thanks again for singing "Con Te Partiṛ" for me. I’ve stopped shaking now! You should have heard him! Even though the sound was not at all perfect, Ollie did a fantastic "Con Te Partiṛ".
SAILOR played a little more than 1 hour. This was longer than I could have hoped for, but I would not have missed a minute of it.
After SAILOR "Middle of the Road" did their show. I won’t say anything about them else than: Sally you should have stopped singing ages ago!
I’m looking forward to the next SAILOR concert. Perhaps my next concert will be in Stoevring, just 25 minutes by car from my home. Even my mother (she’s 80) will go see SAILOR then!
Greetings to all SAILOR fans. See you somewhere….
