Changement dans l'orientation du DVD d'instruction de J. Norum. Cela repousse à nouveau la sortie de cet objet à une date ultérieure...

JNA while back I decided to make an instructional DVD for guitar fans, so I started planning it and everything was going fine but after a while i felt that it was just getting way too technical for my personal taste. I'm more into "If a solo has feeling and fits the song and sounds good, then it IS good!"
So I decided to start over and do more of a song-oriented thing instead, where I play solos from some of my favorite songs, talk about my gear and so on. And I think it came out great!
It's loose and fun which is what guitar playing is all about!
In the meanwhile I had a daughter and decided to put the dvd "on ice" for a while and focus on my family and Europe who has been very busy the last couple of years with albums and touring.
But now I feel that the time is right to put this DVD out so you can see what it's like in my crazy guitar world ...ha.
I want to thank you all for your support, and I hope you will like it! Enjoy!
/John
https://youtu.be/yW4a9HUQv5M

Definitely a MUST HAVE for guitar players and fans! The DVD will be EXCLUSIVELY SOLD through John's official website's SHOP section at http://www.johnnorum.se/. PRE-ORDERS will start soon, check often John's official website and this official Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/OFFICIALJohnNorum/ for the news to come!

Hey friends
So now it's done, yesterday i went onstage as the drummer of Thin Lizzy at the Skogsröjet festival!
We basically had one rehearsal before the show, so of cause i was a wee bit nervous!
Even thou i've been listening to all these songs since i was a teenager, and know them inside out, it's still a totally different thing to "step inside" the music and become a vivid part of it.
The first part of the show i felt like i was in a different universe, it was simply an unreal feeling! I had memory flashbacks from 1977 when i was a thirteen years old boy, and saw Thin Lizzy in Sweden for the first time.
If someone would have said back then "boy... in 40 years you gonna play drums with this band" i would have laughed myself to death, now it was actually happening!
As the show went on i got more relaxed and felt like i was "in the music"
Unfortunately it was over too fast as all good things usually are, but from now on i can stand straight and say that i'm part of the Thin Lizzy history... A true bucketlist moment!
Here are some pics from the show taken by my good friend Stefan Ahr

Friends
I passed by Powerplay Studios today where we recorded The Final Countdown album Sep-Oct 1985. I did some interviews for Swiss press and had a chance to walk through the rooms of the studio. Great feeling and amazing memories. This is the control room where Kevin Elson and Wally Buck produced and engineered the album. They still have the same mixing console SSL-4000 and the same analog Studer tape machine. Great stuff!

EUROPE ANNOUNCE SPECIAL
FINAL COUNTDOWN 30th ANNIVERSARY SHOWS
& LIMITED EDITION VINYL RELEASE

In 1986, Sweden’s biggest Hard Rock act
EUROPE released their milestone album The Final Countdown. The album went on to worldwide success and continues to be a mainstay in playlists all over the world.
2016 sees this iconic album turn 30 years old.
To celebrate that special anniversary, the band will be staging a series of very special concerts.
For the first time ever, these shows will feature The Final Countdown album played in it’s entirety. The band will also be performing hits spanning their musical career. Joey Tempest explains, “With a catalog of songs as big as ours, it is hard to devote so much of the set list to one album. But this anniversary is special and we want to give the fans what they have asked for. The whole band is proud and excited to play the whole album from start to finish, especially as this, our third album, made it possible for us to fulfil our dream to become an international touring band. To make it extra special we will try and play songs from War Of Kings and other albums we haven't played before and at the same time we want to design a show that will be majestic and memorable for all of us.
Hope to see you all at these special dates!”

Whilst always venturing forward, Europe have had a great couple of years.
Last year they won a prestigious Classic Rock Award at London’s Roundhouse and a people’s choice award in Sweden called Rockbjornen and have been touring in support of their critically acclaimed 2015 release, War Of Kings produced by Grammy winner Dave Cobb (Rival Sons)
Just before these special Final Countdown shows, the band will head back into the studio to record a follow up to War of Kings with an eye to a release date in April 2017. The album, as yet untitled, will have an extensive tour schedule to support the release, endeavoring to take in territories not visited in some time.
Joey Tempest “We will release our 11th studio album in 2017 and are enjoying a successful second part of our career since we started up again in 2004. Five new albums, three live DVD's and countless shows and we're still feeling adventurous and creative. No doubt we have the best job in the world and our fans, old and new, are carrying us through it all”.

The Final Countdown 30th Anniversary Shows are:

November 8th – Sweden – Stockholm, Cirkus
November 10th – Belgium – Brussels, Ancienne Belgique
November 11th – Germany – Cologne, E-Werk
November 12th – UK – London, Roundhouse
November 14th – Holland – Utrecht, Musikzentrum Vredenburg (MCV)
November 15th – France – Paris, Olympia
November 16th – Switzerland – Zurich, Volkshaus
November 17th – Switzerland – Lausanne, Metropole
November 19th – Italy – Rome, Orion
November 20th – Italy – Milan, Alcatraz

In addition to the Final Countdown Anniversary tour dates, the UDR label are releasing a very special limited edition 12” 3 track ‘sparkle blue’ Colored Vinyl EP featuring a new 2016 recording of The Final Countdown.
The record is exclusive to the stores that are participating in the annual Record Store Day (April 16th) and only in UK, Europe & Australia
For more details visit:

For fans in the US and other territories, there will be a VERY LIMITED number available on a first come first served basis from the UDR webstore from early May. Details to follow soon. A digital download version of The Final Countdown 2016 will be available via Itunes on April 29th
