This event was a celebration for “The White Album” and its unique position in popular music with some of Scandinavia’s greatest artists – and self-admitted Beatles fans – who gave their personal interpretations of the 30 songs which will contribute to emphasize the evergreen-status of the oeuvre. An enthusiastic crowd of 4,000 – dressed in white – secured the right celebratory atmosphere and act as a human backdrop for both lighting and projections: 1968 brought up-to-date in the digital age.
Outlandish’s cover was the highlight of the night, coz it was the only song that whole crowd stood up and clapped together.
