The Gamla

Not to be confused with Gamle, meaning ‘Old’, this great music venue that has been hosting live rock, pop, roots and retro music since 1972.
Each year around 70-80 concerts are held at Gamla, mostly on weekends.

Gamla located in the building Stortorvets Gjæstgiveri, built in 1699.

Britannia Rules the Waves!

Forget Brexit, it’s Britannia that will rule this theatre in all her shining glory!!

Don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate the early songs of the influential progressive rock band Genesis, with leading UK tribute band The Book Of Genesis , who faithfully recreate the 1970s era comeplete with period musical instruments, fabulous costumes, an animated slide show, and atmospheric synchronised lighting in a packed 3 hour show.

This is a welcome return by The Book Of Genesis to the Gamla, and follows successful year of touring both in the UK (including Charterhouse School – where Genesis formed) , and in Europe (t’Blok, Nieuwerkerk a/d ljsse l, Rotterdam, The Netherlands).

We are admirably supported by Panzerpappa, a melodic, instrumental Norwegian progressive rock band who released their first album back in 2000. 5 albums later and they are highly acclaimed both in Norway and internationally. Panzerpappa mix the melodic and the complex and have traces back to the Canterbury scene. Bands like Caravan, National Health, Hatfield & The North, Soft Machine, Camel and also early Genesis.

Chris Cutler from Henry Cow was probably most accurate when he described them as ”melodic, with a light but solid ensemble sound, rich, detailed, nuanced and with a style that is still their own”.
