USA Report from Stig - TV Programme "Clown" Again - Christmas Trees are Lit and much more….

3. November 2005


Dear Newsletter Recipient,

Stig has sent us the following:

Dear Newsletter Recipient,

As promised, here is a brief account of my first North-American Tour.

I left for Toronto on the 27th September for the purpose of beginning the first of (hopefully) many promotion concerts in Canada and USA. I was accompanied by an orchestra of six conducted by Bob Ricketts. We were received with enormous enthusiasm everywhere and opening night in Toronto was a huge success!

We then left for Detroit, where we did two concerts, both tremendously successful. Particularly the concert at Macomb Center for the Performing Arts was an experience way beyond the usual. This was the concert the newspaper BT had elected to review, and though you might be tempted into thinking that we wrote the review ourselves, this night was exactly as magical, as the journalist from BT described. The 1250 persons in the audience were euphoric, to put it mildly! I have never before experienced a spontaneous standing ovation in the middle of a concert. After performing “Bring Him Home”, everyone in the audience rose and applauded for 2-3 minutes, only then could I proceed with the rest of the programme. This of course made me both happy and proud, and it also told me, that the American people approve of my method of performance. This is a wonderful experience to draw upon when we proceed with the long haul of winning over all 52 states and Canada, one by one!

Around New Year I will return to the States, where I will appear as guest performer in three huge concerts, as part of a concert-tour called “Salute to Vienna”. These concerts have run for 7 years and are hugely successful, and it is a great honour – as well as a tremendous chance for an even better exposure value - to be asked.

I will be singing two songs, “Dein Ist Mein Ganzes Herz” and “Bring Him Home” accompanied by a symphony orchestra from Vienna. The final concert dates will be added to my calendar on the homepage as soon as I receive them, but it will be close to New Year and the concert cities are Charlotte, Baltimore and Chicago.

The promoter who arranges these concerts – and who incidentally attended the concert in Toronto with great enthusiasm – has suggested that I do 12 concerts over there next year.

So, the project got off at a good start and we are progressing favourably.

I thank you for your interest. I will keep you updated regularly on “The American Dream” project.

Very best wishes

Stig Rossen

A Message From Stig, Charity Concert in Vejle and the Competition

6. April 2005


Dear Newsletter Recipients,

As he promised Stig has sent us all a few words about his trip to USA.

I'M BACK!!

I have just returned from three weeks in the USA, where I visited 11PBS-stations in 13 days (I did accrue quite a lot of air mileage!!).

The interest in the Tivoli Concert has been quite overwhelming and we havealready received an amazing feedback from the various stations that haveaired the program during the month of March. The preliminary reportindicates that the program was seen by at least 50% of the potentialviewers that the stations comprise, which means that at least 30 millionAmericans and Canadians are now familiar with a Dane by the name of StigRossen. A pretty good start for a (in North America) totally unknownsinger from East Fuenen, right? Furthermore, it has been confirmed that Iwill give 10 concerts over there in the fall, more precisely the last weekin September and first week of October. So, the American dream is stillvery much alive and hopefully on its way to becoming a reality.

In addition to the work related stuff, Nina, Lucas and I also had a greattrip. In spite of the hectic schedule we managed to visit Niagara Falls,The National Aquarium (and their amazing dolphin show), and the SpaceNeedle in Seattle. We were also lucky as we managed to see a genuine rodeoin Houston, Texas. All in all it was a busy but wonderful trip to theStates.

I cannot hide the fact that I am very excited about returning to theStates and having the opportunity to "give it all" in Gods own country insix months time. I still hope that I will be able to bring my own bandalong, but at the very least I have to bring my three chorus girls fromTivoli - everybody were totally infatuated by them.

I really appreciate your interest. I hope that you will continue usingthis newsletter where I will keep you updated on the progress of myAmerican career campaign.

Very best wishes

Stig Rossen
