I've already photographed
Karen twice, in Glostrup, 3.
November 2000 and in Rødovre, 1.
April 2005. The Rødovre gig was the debut concert of The
Ballarina Tour 2005 and so I also did this gig in Tivoli at the end of
the tour. Only Skanderborg Festival'en two days later remained.
the musical side Karen and the band has improved since the debut
in April. The unique Karen-R'n'B-style had got a twist of rock, which sounded
very suitable for a live performance. Karen's music
is rather unique, as she's the only Danish artist creating music like this.
audience got a big surprise when the first verse of Ballarina was
done in a Big Band version, backed by Copenhagen Show Band, vintage
Marilyn Monroe fashion. With delicious Monroe-shaped Karen
perforning very sexy on stage. A girl in the crowd shouted: "Lækker
røv" ("nice ass") by which Karen
smiled and thanked. Karen is definitely the most sexy female artist
on the Danish music scene today, as Freya seems to be temporary
absent at the rock scene.
Another surprise was Mikkel Mund
from Rent Mel rapping on one song, I Nat Er Vi.
is a dream on stage for a photographer, which I hope is obvious when you enjoy
the pictures below:
