This Year’s Christmas Concerts

I began my 25th Christmas Concert tour in Maribo Cathedral on the 20th November. It was a huge pleasure, and from this day and until 20th December I will be touring all over Denmark with my amazing guest performer Jasmin Gabay. We look forward to seeing you for some Christmas songs and Christmas fun.


TV Lorry was visiting as we rehearsed for our Christmas concerts.

Stig Rossen

This year, Stig can celebrate the 25th anniversary of his Christmas concert Tour.

Christmas has a very special place in Stig Rossen's heart, and since he released his first Christmas album in 1998, Julelys, the list has grown to a total of four Christmas albums and one Christmas DVD.

The releases reflect the versatility that also characterizes the Christmas concerts. The most beautiful and beloved Christmas hymns and songs from the Danish song treasure, new and old, go hand in hand with a selection of the best songs from the English-language repertoire. In Stig Rossen's interpretations, The Feast of Hearts contains everything from energetic American classics to subdued, moving Danish a cappella versions.

Jasmin Gabay

We know Jasmin Gabay and her infectious humour and energy from DR’s The Big Baking Contest 2018 and her beautiful voice from the Danish Eurovision Song Contest 2019, where she participated with the Latin-inspired “Kiss Like This”. As a choir singer, Jasmin has performed with Mariah Carey in Sweden and she was a part of Carey's Christmas tour in 2018 in Denmark. She has been a regular backing singer for Patrick Dorgan and in 2017 she was in Kiev for the Eurovision Song Contest as a strong backing for Anja Nissen.

There is good reason to look forward to experiencing the wonderful Jasmin Gabay live when she lights up the stage as guest performer at this year's Christmas concert.

15. Februar 2019

2019 is well underway. I play the part of Fuchs in the new big musical Leonora Christina in Odeon until tomorrow, there are a lot of concerts with Stig & Friends in the calendar, and I have of course started to prepare for the big 25th anniversary Christmas tour. It will be an exciting year with many new initiatives.

This week we launched our website and web shop, introducing a brand-new look. Come check it out!

Aarhus Banden has "retired", as they themselves call it, and I would like to thank these enthusiasts for their fantastic support through the years. I look forward to meeting you all at the concert venues.

Exciting News for 2019 and a Message from Aarhus Banden

January 30th. 2019

Dear Newsletter Recipient,

Happy New Year. We hope you have entered the year 2019 in good health and spirit.

In the following we have listed Stig’s many scheduled activities for 2019. As always, many will be added along the way, so keen a close eye on the calendar on Stig’s website 


We hope that you have been able to learn through the media, that Stig currently is performing in the new musical Leonora Christina, which centres on the story of the King’s daughter from the Blue Tower. Xenia Lach-Nielsen, a name many will recognize from the musical Chess, is playing the lead. Stig plays the parts of Fuchs/Francisco. The musical is staged by Peter Langdal, an instructor whom Stig has long wanted to cooperate with.

Leonora Christina is a newly written musical and an inter-artistic collaboration between Odense Theater, The Funen Opera and Odense Symphony Orchestra.

The musical is played at Odeon's large hall in Odense. Opening night was Tuesday 22 February at 19.30. So far, performances have been planned until February 15, 2019.

Please note that Stig is not in the performance on February 1, as he has another obligation on this date.

During 2018 Stig has started activities on other media and he also has many new initiatives on the drawing board. We have been reviewing the situation for some time, and we have now concluded that this will be a very good time for us to bow out and retire.

All of us at Aarhus Banden sincerely thank everyone for all your positive feedback to us over the years, your always happy and cosy contact with us when we meet out there in the "Stig" world, whether it is for Stig's own productions, with "Stig and Friends" or other activities, it has been and always is a pleasure.

We will of course continue to follow Stig's many activities, so we will see you out there 😊

Very best wishes
