Trentemøller's evolved live show
Fri 26th Nov, 2010 Newsin
As any fan will tell you, a DJ set from Trentemøller just doesn’t compare to the full live experience. The Danish virtuoso is returning to Australia this New Years period with band in tow, and these are set to be the most ambitious shows he’s staged here. In order to bring his most recent album Into The Great Wide Yonder to life, Trentemøller sought out players who could do it justice.
The set-up we’ll witness on our festival stages this summer sees the frontman joined by a cast of five musicians on keys, guitar, bass, drums and vocals. While Into The Great Wide Yonder is largely a brooding affair, early reports from European shows suggest the songs are given a dancefloor pulse more in line with his landmark debut The Last Resort.
If you want to know how it all comes together on-stage, look no further than the remarkable video for Trentemøller’s latest single, Silver Surfer, Ghost Rider Go!!!. The live footage was captured on the main-stage at the Roskilde festival in Denmark last summer.
As you can see, Trentemøller is a superstar in his home country, allowing for an elaborate light show and a fleet of dancers. The performance is suitably exhilarating – and while the scale of the shows will be a lot smaller here, you can expect them to be just as tingly…
