Janvier Posted November 10, 2015 Share Posted November 10, 2015 I stumbled upon this content on the website of the county of Finnmark, a region located in the extreme northeastern part of Norway bordering Finland to the South, Russia to the East.It shows John Paul Jones in the company of mostly R.E.M. personnel: guitarist Peter Buck, bassist Mike Mills and multi-instrumentalist Scott McCaughey (along with Steve Wynn, formerly of The Dream Syndicate and artist Michele Noach).The entry on ffk.no, using google translation from Norwegian to English, reads:It was during Monday's press conference (that) we got to meet the world-renowned musicians who have arrived (in) Vadsø. to play the mini festival Ice Station.Another report, posted on the website of the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK) quotes John Paul Jones as saying that the group of musicians arrived on the invitation of Australian artist Michele Noach.According to NRK:"Jones will also look Vadsø landmark Airships Masta, where polar heroes Roald Amundsen and Umberto Nobile moored before his expeditions in the 20th century. The artists will also visit the memorial of witch burnings in Vardø and hopefully see both reindeer and northern lights - even though the weather forecast offers little hope for the latter" (google translation from Norwegian). Here are some links to the content (in Norwegian) and source of the photo reprinted here on the forum:http://www.nrk.no/finnmark/r.e.m--og-zeppelin-stjerner-spiller-joik-i-vadso-1.12644253http://www.altaposten.no/lokalt/kultur/2015/11/09/Historisk-samling-av-verdensstjerner-11789528.ecehttps://www.facebook.com/finnmarkfylkeskommune Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
