seven years ago appeared to Luke Graham for 500 fans in Lille Vega, while Lukas Forchhammer still was mostly known as Grunk from the ’Crumbs’.
Thursday was popbandet opposite the 15,000 in the Royal Arena, when the band began the big tour. The coming days are the copenhageners facing further 62.000 by several arenashows in copenhagen and in Herning.
There are crumbs in the book of Luke Graham now days. In each case commercially.
the Trio and their henchmen laid out with ’Not a Damn Thing Changed’. But things have obviously changed.
Once appeared forchhammer's cheeky style sincere. He could not let be. Now it seems like he just plays a role. It is tiring.
In the Royal Arena missing the charm and the warmth, and musical filled the group for a bit in the huge arena, where a springy ’Mama Said’, however, exceptionally, sent the vast majority of the 30,000 hands in the air.
Luke graham's current disc, ’3 (The Purple Album)’, is packed with ballads, which is obviously not ideal when you want to keep the party going. So it was a strange unresolved experience.
A strip sjælere on virtually all forchhammer's family members were decidedly melodramatic midway, where just 86 minutes short set was drowning in sødsuppe. Christianitten bad a transition the audience to be quiet, so we could all hear the recording of his daughter's heart beat in the speakers.
Stop yourself. Now. Facebook is invented for this kind of thing.

in Addition to the ballads, there was added a chorus a la ’Before Sunday’, was more frantic and lengthy monologues instrumental concert never got momentum.
It was like to witness a number of tilforladelige, musical feature in a random tv show.
There came a little bac in the very sober affair in the form of a swinging ’Drunk in the Morning’, but in general it felt as if there were semi-skimmed milk in the can of beer that was drunk on stage.
Better, it was not of the premiere at the same time was the last announced ekstrakoncert in the Royal Arena, and that it is thus was the sløveste fans who showed up. On a Tuesday.
It was simply too smooth, harmless, and nicely, that it helped much, to Forchhammer song titled, the sound was excellent, the band had practiced and the showproduktionen really sparkled.
the Spirit was not, and a few kilometres away from Christiania was gadedrengen difficult to recognize.
The happy amateur has unfortunately become a boring professional. And the band reminded more of a business, as Lukas Graham lirede ’7 Years’ of towards the end.
