Trentemøller and his band just finished the first leg of the European MEMORIA tour! After a fantastic kick-off in Scandinavia, they played Amsterdam, London, had some amazing shows in Belgium, France and Switzerland and a grande finale in the south, playing shows in Milan and Bacelona. "It’s been such an amazing and heartfelt experience playing for so many lovely people in 12 different cities … and boy … I’m gonna miss my incredible sweet and talented band members.", says Anders himself.
For the MEMORIA tour, Trentemøller set up a completely new band: The brilliant Disa Jakobs adds her beautiful vocals and plays guitar and synth. Brian Batz joins in on the guitar and Jacob Haubjerg helps out with bass, guitar and vocals. On the drums, we have Silas Tinglef (2nd Blood) and last but not least, Trentemøller himself on the keys.
Also, we would like to give a big shoutout to the support acts School of X, Mavourneen and Living Ever After, who did a bad ass job!
Here's the media's take on the MEMORIA tour:
"Standing in Den Grå Hall and seeing and hearing the fusion of images, lights, music and song - after hearing the School of X warm-up from the long queue - was cathartic." (GAFFA, DK)
"I noticed an intense anticipation that was only further affected by a beautiful lighting setup (v. legendary lighting designer, Leroy Bennett) - the combination especially of the lights (which were accidentally or unintentionally in Ukrainian colors) and the later often diffuse visuals (which brought to mind drone videos of bombed-out cities)." (GAFFA, DK)
"[...] each piece of the puzzle falls into place, forming a much more complex image than expected, to which even the most reluctant must surrender, letting themselves go." (L'Indiependente, IT)
"[...] a unique balance between the airy singing, the grounding mix of electronic beats and the acoustic support." (Dansende Beren, BE)
"A rollercoaster of contrasts and sensations dressed in a masterful set of lights that left the audience spellbound by so much virtuosity." (Scanner.fm, ES)
