The Rolling Stones rehearsals in Oslo May 2014
Posted by: bv ()
Date: May 20, 2014 21:23

They have been building the stage for two days now and it is pretty much ready. The band is flying in as we speak, now on Tuesday May 20, and Oslo will be Stones Town now for a week. It is great to see all the trucks nicely lined up outside the arena. Top security already.

I am starting to get getting goosebumps!

I had a grandmother who's ancestry has been traced back to Oslo. So this concert has some additional meaning for me. Her maiden name was Johnson.

The first sign of the concert preparations was the trucks arriving into Fornebu and Telenor Arena on Monday. Then Tuesday around noon Sally Wood strolled on the main street Karl Johans gate making a tweet from a souvenir shop with Norwegian flags and trolls.



Then the rest of the band arrived, and Bernard made a tweet from the pickup at Gardermoen airport...



The local newspaper Asker & Bærums Budstikke was the first of the Norwegian press to pick up the news about the show preparations, in the following article:

Seks dager før The Rolling Stones spiller bygges scenen. Lyd- og lydprøver er i gang.

Fornebu will be a busy place today as the local "Fornebuløpet" with 10k and 5k races is happening there today, with approx 2,000 runners. Telenor Arena is the square building on top of the picture. The 5k starts at 6pm and 10k at 6:30pm. Fornebu used to be the main airport in Oslo until it closed down just a few weeks after the Stones tour of 1995 finished. The old control tower is still there...

Well, honey, it's no rock 'n' roll show.

I will run but I might bring my bike too in order to check out nearby locations at Fornebu today... Bike will be faster than car out there today.

Reportedly they`ve started rehearsing secretly at the film studio at Jar, just outside of Oslo, but not far from the venue.

See link:
[www.budstikka.no]

Will we see them out on the town?

Satisfaction rocks hard as we speak! Unfortunately, some jerk left his engine running outside, so it's hard to recognise the songs...

You talk as this is again a secret but the anwser is just linked in the message before your.


Do you really think that an English speaking fan is gonna know for certain that Mick Taylor is there?

There's also a mention of Bruce Springsteen and he probably is not there.

That article is in Norwegian and I for one don't speak it.

Thanks for the info BV. smileys with beer


I am so happy I will see Mick Taylor on stage Monday with The Rolling Stones. hot smiley

Any chance they will do a surprise show before Monday? Just rehearsing might be a bit boring .....

I talk to all of the press i.e. TV2, NRK and some other journalists who do not say they are journalists out there. They are all real nice and professional, but to be honest, how would you know who has the right and who has the wrong information? I am just giving the first hand facts here on IORR, the journalists listen and print what I and others say out there... Fans, neighbours, dog walkers, you name it. They have many sources. May be it is nice to have confirmed info from real fans?

Anyway, The Stones are in Oslo, the security is tight, they work hard and seriously on the rehearsals, only a cat managed to get through the gates. They might hide out in London, but in sleepy Oslo where nothing happens there are 12 press people and 12 fans, a nice little group of followers. Everyboddy is happy.
