Prince is coming to Bergen!

I’m so excited, Prince is coming to my hometown Bergen this year! October 18 and the funny part is that its only a few kilometers away. I hope I get the chance to go, its been so long since I last went to his concert. That was in 1988, the LoveSexy tour.

I was only 17 then, I remember a few buddies and I took the train to Oslo and Valle Hovin – it was an awesome concert. I especially remember when he entered the stage in a Corvette, and when he played Purple Rain the purple light colored the rain above us and made a great athmosphere.

I also remember that I fell in love with Sheila E., the drummer. 🙂

The return home was a nightmare though, we missed the train back and we didn’t have money to spend the night at a hotel. We tried to sleep at the train station but we were kicked out so we found a spot outside to sit through the night. Lets just say it wasn’t a nice experience.

Its kind of fun that he choose Bergen before Oslo. 🙂 Finally.

    Syns han kan ta seg en tur til Oslo igjen jeg (har aldri sett han live før, da jeg er såpass ung at jeg ikke hadde kjennskap til han sist gang). Veldig mange av mine favorittartister som har holdt konserter i Bergen, Stavanger, Notodden og andre steder langt herfra i det siste, og nøyer seg med det. Faktisk så føler jeg at de fleste interessante konserter har vært langt unna Oslo i det siste, stikk i strid med hvordan man skulle tro det var. Velvel, heldigvis kommer TOP til Oslo i november, men jeg syns Prince også kan ta seg en tur snart.

    Skal på Prince konserten. Dette blir kanon. Har du noen tips om hvordan man kommer seg greit frem og tilbake mellom Bergen sentrum og Vestlandshallen?

      Buss nr 16 fra festplassen, der er det flere som du kan ta, til terminalen i Åsane. Derfra er det 10 minutter å gå. Langs sentrene så er du der.
