Photo Gallery + Review: Dean Lewis in Oslo, Norway

It's been three years since Dean Lewis visited Norway and Rockefeller. On Sunday the 18th of September the Australian artist took the stage in front of the Norwegian audience again, but this time at a sold out Sentrum Scene.

Oslo is the second stop on the European leg of Lewis' Sad Boi Winter Summer Tour. Along with him as support is Anson Seabra, whose performance was well received by the audience. The venue is quiet, but Seabra's got everyone's attention. Songs like Peter Pan Was Right and Welcome to Wonderland get the crowd excited and people sing along.

Dean Lewis starts his set with Falling Up followed by Stay Awake. If you know of Dean Lewis and have heard his songs, I can tell you that they are just as amazing live and he is an incredible performer with a silky smooth voice. He has his guitar in hand and a huge smile on his face as he tells stories about how the songs came to be. The crowd listens and laughs, and there are quite a few "aww"'s as he tells the story about how his dad got very sick a few years ago which inspired his latest single How Do I Say Goodbye. (He made sure to let us know that his dad is doing fine today). He was also amazed that everyone knew the words to the song which was released just a few weeks ago.

Towards the end of the show the song Lewis has with Kygo, Lost Without You, offers a change of pace and a contrast to the more calm setlist, but it works well enough. During Be Alright, one of his really big hits, the crowd is bellowing out the lyrics, followed by Hurtless which turns Sentrum Scene into a sea of lights – a beautiful sight.

The encore got Anson Seabra joining Lewis on stage and together they perform a cover of Iris by Goo Goo Dolls before the show closes with Waves. Lewis has a good connection with the crowd throughout the entire set, and it was such a nice atmosphere. There's no doubt Dean Lewis appreciates his fans. He's got a huge talent for storytelling through songs, and he seems like such a sincere guy. His songs come from the heart and he wears his heart on his sleeve as during his performance. Along with two thousand other people, I had a wonderful Sunday evening!
