The shows will take place in Norway: Hurum, Kolben and Mysen from May 21st-27th 2017. Clive will return to the stage in his original role of Professor King. The cast will also include Eirikur Hauksson (Magic Pie) and Elisabeth Syrdahl Ellingsen, the lead vocalist of Clive's 2016 concerts in Uruguay, and many others. The Norwegian shows will also feature the live band (The Windmill) and the chorus. Tickets for all events are available HERE.

Clive Nolan: "I’m finally back from Norway… I got to stay a little extra thanks to fog… A lot of waiting around! However, there was no waiting around during the weekend of rehearsals. Everyone pulled together brilliantly, and I was able to watch the massive improvements before my every eyes! Well done to the whole cast, musicians, the chorus and crew for an excellent effort. I look forward to the next rehearsal and the shows in May."

Clive Nolan: “Playing these acoustic shows in Norway was a superb experience. I had no idea what to expect until I arrived, and it was soon clear we had a great set of singers. I really enjoyed the shows. We all did well, and I think that comes out in this DVD. The audiences were terrific as well - very enthusiastic and responsive. This recording is a fitting testament to the first performances of Caamora Norway.”
