Orebro

“The show must go on”, that’s the saying in the entertainment business and it was never more poignant than last night at Orebro’s Conventum Kongress. Terry’s sad news impacted everyone and we weren’t sure how to proceed with a show that had already been moved several times due to the pandemic. The decision was taken out of our hands and we had to hastily enlist the help of my son, Luke, to come to our aid and make the show happen. Busy though he was, he made alternative arrangements in order to give Smokie priority and made a last minute dash to Sweden to join us. An eager crowd fully accepted two new faces on stage and the show was given a huge response. There are still two more shows to perform next week in Sweden before Smokie take a break until February next year, a year in which our diary is loaded with shows that have so far been impossible due to restrictions on entertainment. Perhaps 2022 will be kinder to all of us.
