Taking the stage: A giant among performers

The Tallest Man on Earth

Sun 14 Aug, 20:00; DR Koncerthuset; 320kr

He might not impress you with his height, but he will with his beautiful, original vocals. Listen to his songs, and he probably sounds like nothing you would expect.

Originally from Sweden, The Tallest Man on Earth (who is actually shorter than an average Swede) has amazed audiences around the world with his indie folk tunes.

His single ‘Love is all’ is close to hitting 20 million Spotify streams and most of his songs are featured on the major folk and ambient music playlists.
Currently touring the US, Canada and Europe, check forums for tickets. (GD)

Eagles of Death Metal

Thu 11 Aug, 20:00; Amager Bio; Sold Out (310kr, waiting list)

After heading back to Paris for their first performance after the Bataclan show last November, the rock band will be touring the US and Europe this summer. They may have trash-talked Paris, but that hasn’t put the punters off. (GD)
