One of Norway’s most enduring artists, Sivert Høyem is best known as the former singer of rock band Madrugada, as well as a popular solo artist and storyteller whose distinctive voice recalls a combination of the timbres of Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave, and Neil Diamond.

For more than 15 years, Sivert Høyem dreamed of playing a concert in the 2000-year old Herod Atticus Odeon amphitheater at the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. On Sept 29th and Oct 2nd 2016, the dream came true, as Høyem – as one of very few artists approved by Greek authorities to perform at the theatre – played two sold-out shows in front of 10.000 Greek fans.

The concert recording sees Sivert Høyem perform classic songs, spanning his 20-year career, both as a solo artist and as the lead singer of Madrugada. Ever since the release of Madragada’s debut album “Industrial Silence”, Sivert Høyem has regularly performed in Greece building a faithful fan base among music lovers, making such a memorable event possible.

NRK broadcast the concert March 31 2017.
