Paris concert, May 9th

Paris, May 9th

Wednesday’s concert at La Cigale in Paris included an unexpected moment, when – during “Forever Not Yours” – first the lights went out, followed by the sound disappearing. There’s a clip of it here.

Thankfully, the technical problems were sorted out shortly afterwards.

Check out some good quality video clips from YouTube user “vmandrant” here, and view a photo gallery from the show at

Brussels concert, May 8th

Brussels, May 8th

Morten played at the Ancienne Belgique in Brussels yesterday.

There hasn’t been much info from this concert yet, except it was the standard setlist, but there is a video clip of “Out Of Blue Comes Green” on YouTube.

You know, I wasn’t sure if Morten would be able to sing “Out Of Blue Comes Green” night after night on this tour, considering how demanding it is vocally. But he keeps delivering amazing performances of the song, as you can see in the clip.

Hamburg concert, April 29th

The German leg of Morten’s solo tour started at the Congress Center in Hamburg yesterday, in front of 1900 fans.

The 19-song setlist was the same as in Russia. But despite a busy touring schedule, Morten’s voice remains strong, as evidenced in this performance of Stay On These Roads.

There’s a review and photo gallery from Hamburg at

Morten on Willkommen bei Carmen Nebel

Morten was a guest on the popular German TV-show Willkommen bei Carmen Nebel yesterday, broadcast live on ZDF from the city of Fulda.

In addition to a short interview, he did a playback performance of “Scared Of Heights”.

Both the performance and interview can be seen on YouTube.

St. Petersburg concert, April 26th

St. Petersburg, April 26th

Morten ended the Russian part of the tour on Thursday, with a concert at the Little Ice Palace in St. Petersburg.

No changes in the setlist, which has been the same since the second concert in Novosibirsk.

But after Morten missed his cue (once again), Crying In The Rain turned into a real trainwreck – demonstrating how difficult it is to correct things when you’re using a lot of pre-programmed sounds.

Check out other YouTube clips from the concert here.

Number 1 in Norway

Out Of My Hands climbs up to #1 in its second week on the Norwegian album chart, making it the third of Morten’s solo albums to reach the top spot in Norway.

The album is also starting to appear in album charts outside Norway and Germany:

  • Switzerland: #23
  • Austria: #30
  • Netherlands: #77
  • Belgium: #90

And in the German single chart, “Scared Of Heights” climbs up from #92 to #60 in its third week.

Before the concert Morten did a half-hour press conference with local journalists.
