There were many rumours about the next station of the Orange Piano Tour 2013. The spectacular performance on the Great Wall of China 2012 left many viewers think,what will come next ? Is it a pyramid in Egypt or Mexico ? Will it be a high mountain again like the Swiss 4206m high Alphubel of the first station ? No this time Stefan Aaron wants to bring his coloured upright piano back to Europe to (drumroll)–Norway !
