SHINING PLAYED AND FILMED THEIR BLACKJAZZ MUSIC – ON A DEADLY MOUNTAINTOP IN NORWAY – AND LIVED TO TELL ABOUT IT
SEE THE PHOTOS + FOOTAGE
This past Sunday, June 21, on the solstice and longest day of the year, the Norwegian blackjazz band SHINING played the world’s first concert on top of a grandiose mountain structure hanging out 700 meters-that’s nearly 2300 feet-above the ground.
How they f!@# did that they do that?
The band flew a PA system and power generator up to the mountaintop and blasted their patented “blackjazz” music to a group of 300 fans and mountain hikers who had embarked on the daunting task of walking the five-hour trip to the top o’ the mountain.
A fan-filmed clip of the concert can be seen HERE. If you are afraid of heights, screw it and watch ANYWAY!
Post-show, SHINING frontman Jørgen Munkeby said, “This is the craziest thing I’ve ever been part of! First of all, I’m happy that we’re all still alive! But I’m also happy that we got all the technical aspects of this to work, as it’s no easy task to plan a full rock and metal concert on top of a freaking mountain!”
The concert was filmed with one helicopter, one drone, and several cameramen. It will be released once the material is gathered and processed.
– Is there a cover charge or tickets sold for this Shining show at Trolltunga?
No, it’s completely free! Isn’t that awesome?
– What does the shuttle from Tyssohallen to the hiking starting point cost?
It costs 50 NOK, or 100 NOK if you ride from Odda
– Is there any info about the shuttle in regards to departure times etc?
Odda Taxi will be driving continuosly between Odda, Tyssohallen and Skjeggedal in the periods 08:00 – 12:00 and the period 16:00 – 21:00.
– How can audience travel from Flesland (Bergen Airport) to Tyssohallen? How long time does the travel take?
You’ll need to travel from Bergen on Saturday, as the hike up to Trolltunga starts very early on Sunday. It takes about 3 hours from Bergen to Tyssohallen by car. You can also look for buses at www.skyss.no.
– Can you provide driving directions to Tyssohallen?
Here’s our new logo, which is the centerpiece on which a hugely elaborate visual concept is built for our upcoming album. Hope you like it! We’ve lived with it (in secrecy) for more than half a year now, and we love it!
Do you like it?
Jørgen Munkeby comments:
“When preparing the artwork for our upcoming new album, I though to myself “our current logo is the best logo I’ve seen, so why change it?”. But then it dawned on me – that’s not what Shining is about! Let’s make a new one! And now I’m glad we did, because now I think this spanking new one is the best I’ve seen!”
“After six years of collaboration, resulting in design for two studio albums, live album, singles, merchandise and whatnot, Shining and our design studio has taken it to a whole new level. The first hint of what is to come is also the first element we designed for Shining’s new direction – the logo, which is the centerpiece of a much greater picture, one that will be revealed in due time.”

New album coming soon! We just signed worldwide with Spinefarm Records!
According to Munkeby: “Our new album is one of our most varied, encompassing the whole gamut of what we do, from the sinister ferocity and experimentation of ‘Blackjazz’ to the more focused songwriting of ‘One One One’. It really is the culmination of all the best elements in the Blackjazz world!”
