European Tour 2008 : Heather Nova - European tour 2008 summary
Posted by Bernd on 2008/10/29 23:50:00 (1581 reads)
European Tour 2008

In the last two and a half weeks, Heather Nova has toured many Central European states. She gave fourteen concerts in United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The European Tour 2008 started in London on October 13 and ended in Paris on October 28.

Heather Nova presented many songs from her brand-new album The Jasmine Flower, which was released a few days before the tour in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. In other countries, the fans could buy the album before and after the concerts at the merchandising stand. Also, the "Sorrowjoy CD" and tour shirts were available there.

As Heather stated, the songs from "The Jasmine Flower" were played the very first time ever live before people, only her dog had the possibility yet to listen to the new songs before.

She has sung Ride, Beautiful Storm, Maybe Tomorrow, and Every Soldier Is A Mother's Son at all or almost all concerts. Also, Out in New Mexico, Hollow and Always Christmas were presented at some concerts. In Amsterdam, there was a video shooting for Always Christmas, and the complete show was filmed with many professional cameras. Heather has played the new songs alone on her acoustic guitar, sometimes accompanied only by some backing vocals.

As a surprise, Heather has "covered" her own song Renegade this time. The song was released last year together with German artist ATB, but Heather presented it in her "own version" now, with full band. In the song Winterblue, Heather has added some lyrics from Don Henley's song "Boys of Summer". The songs Not Only Human and Heal have been played without a break between. All other songs on this tour were well-known songs from Heather, ranging from classic Walk This World over emotionally Like Lovers Do to lively Motherland and played with full band as well.

The tour band consisted this year of the following people: Heather Nova at guitar and keyboards (Fool For You), Berit Fridahl at guitar, Bastian Juel at bass, and for the first time Geoff Dugmore on drums, percussions, and cajón (Paper Cup).

Heather Nova played three new guitars, an acoustic sunburned Takamine, a black half acoustic Taylor and a bright acoustic Taylor.

In London, Heather has dedicated the song Paper Cup to her parents, as they have been in the audience.

The Heather Nova Network was on tour as well: many members have been at one, two or three concerts, some members even went to all 14 gigs! Without them, it wouldn't have been possible to do our traditional live coverage of the gigs again. We want to thank all HNN members who have visited the gigs, gave additional background information, setlists, reports, shared photos, or told us what they have felt or thought while visiting the concerts, and we hope you all enjoyed the concerts and the HNN fan meetings before and after the concerts as much as we did. See you next time again! About the gigs, you can still visit our tour discussion board. You need to register before posting messages there.

But even if you couldn't make it to one concert this time, don't worry, there is another chance to see Heather presenting the Jasmine Flower songs! The people from livedome.com have broadcasted in cooperation with HNN and German fansite heathernova.de the Berlin concert live on the internet. You can now watch the full concert in the archives of livedome.com.

We want to thank Heather Nova and her band, her management, and all other people who helped her with this tour. Thank you very much for these unforgettable days!

European Tour 2008 : Tour Start in London
Posted by gerd on 2008/10/14 3:50:06 (1470 reads)
European Tour 2008

Tonight, October 13th 2008, Heather Nova started her European Tour 2008 with a concert in the Shepherd's Bush Empire in London. The trio Scarce played for half an hour as support act. Heather Nova started her about 90 minutes concert at 8.45 p.m. with the following band:

Heather Nova: vocals, guitar, keyboards
Berit Fridahl: guitar, backing vocals
Bastian Juel: bass, backing vocals
Geoff Dugmore: drums, percussions, Cajón

Most of the concert was played with full band. The opening song Ride, a two song midle part and the second encore were played by Heather acoustically and solo.

Here is the setlist of the concert in London:

Ride (Heather Nova only)
Heart And Shoulder
Blood Of Me
Motherland
All I Need
Not Only Human
Heal
Walk this World
Fool For You
Redbird
Beautiful Storm (Heather Nova only)
Maybe Tomorrow (Heather Nova only)
I Wanna Be Your Light
London Rain
Island
Like Lovers Do
Winterblue (with lyrics from Don Henley - Boys of summer)
---------
Paper Cup (dedicated to Heather's parents)
Renegade
---------
Every Soldier Is A Mother's Son


Heather Nova's parents were in the audience and Heather dedicated Paper Cup the first song of the first encore to them.

Quite unexpected was the song Renegade, which was played quite rocky.

The second encore was not mentioned on the original setlist, but the audience asked for a second encore. So she decided to perform Every Soldier Is A Mother's Son.

On the setlist the two acoustic parts in the middle appears with just the name "acoustic". So Heather Nova might choose different songs form concert to concert from her new album The Jasmine Flower.

Heather Nova played keyboards when performing Fool For You.

Heather Nova played two new guitars, a new acoustic sunburned Takamine guitar and a black half acoustic Taylor guitar.
