D-A-D

Fri Aug 7, 22:00; Tivoli; free adm with entry to gardens

The Danish hard rock band D-A-D were founded in Copenhagen some 30 years ago, and they are still going strong today.

To celebrate their anniversary this year they have come up with an ambitious 30/30/30 agenda.

This will involve them playing 30 concerts in Denmark, 30 concerts abroad and at 30 festivals.

As part of their mission they are bringing their very best form to Tivoli’s Fredagsrock stage, where they will perform some of their biggest hits from their broad repertoire, such as ‘Monster philosophy’, ‘Helpyourselfish’ and ‘Scare yourself’. (JK)
