http://youtu.be/AhorHC-tOwQ  Dolly Parton doing the ALS Challenge really great with some help Of her nieces Hannah and Rebecca  who was nice with the extra ice. Dolly did Challenge Everyone to donate so much $$$ as she did to ALS Associations around the World. Dolly is cool and generous.

I thought she would do this, after all she had run naked in front Of Tom Jones house years ago in Hollywood and been dared by Friends (Read More about that in her biography My Life And Other Unfinisched Business) 
Hmm….What can I Challenge/ dare Dolly in? I dare Dolly to talk one sentence in Swedish…

Visit alsa.org to donate and learn More about ALS

Backstage at Blue Smoke World Tour part 2

So we have come to part two of the backstage at Blue Smoke World Tour in Copenhagen,  Denmark.
When you look at the stage you’ll se lights very close to the roof of the arena, these lights hit the audience during the show, it’s people who isn’t afraid of heights who handle them with their hands.

Around the stage and on diffrent spots there are cameras who film the show, it’s not filmed spontanious. The camera people have a svript to follow during every song so Dolly are making several music videos during one show.
At the stage, The musicians and backsingers are using in ears but Dolly do it old school style ( no in ears) .
Behind the stage work the sound, light, monitors, microphonr guys and I’m sure it’s several more.
