My name is Colin Betts. I have been a fan of D-A-D since 1990 when I first saw the video for Sleeping My Day Away. Through friends and some good luck, I have been able to keep up with their music and song, even receiving some very special Christmas cards along the way.
But it was not until a special show in Luxembourg on June 7, 2008 that I finally realized my dream of seeing the band live. From the opening of "Isn't that Wild", through the entire set, to after the show and meeting Stig, Jesper and Jacob. It was an amazing adventure in a terrific city.
I persuaded my wife to attend the "Grøn Koncert" in Næstved with me this summer. We arrived late as we only came for D-A-D, even though we had to endure most of Aqua, in our quest to get to the front. When Aqua ended, most of the Aqua fans disappeared, and we got a place in front row, in front of Stiggen.
It was a great koncert, but my most magic moment, was when my wife actually caught one of the drumsticks Laust Sonne threw to the audience and then gave it to me with a smile. Man...you got to love
My best D-A-D related experince must be during the club tour in may 2005. We went to signing in Stereo Studio, came early enough to Musikcafeen to have dinner next to the band and after the amazing show in the tight atmosphere, Torleif signed the D-A-D skatebord and drew a large Helpyourselfish...
True Believer: Merete Bang Selsted
I had been looking forward to the great Wigwam Tour all summer, and most of all to listen to my favorite band D-A-D. But then during my vacation I accidently heard on the radio that the whole tour was off! The summer was ruined and I just looked sadly at my worthless ticket.
But luck found us afterall, my friend and I went to the making up concert at 10-øren at Amager. The atmosphere was great and I knew the day would end in a big bang - D-A-D closing the event.
My most magic moment with D-A-D, is my first live concert with them ever. I felt in love with their music this summer, so i'm one of the new in the crowd of D-A-D fans, but definitely already one of their biggest!
26 th. of July and the 'Dirty Fairytale' was about to start.
