It is March 1, 2018.
On the big stage in Milwaukee in front of thousands of people stands Tove Styrke. This is the first stop on New Zealand artist Lorde’s US tour, and Tove has never stood in such a large arena before.
It was a while ago that Lorde got in touch and offered Tove to be her band on her tour. This is Tove’s big chance, and she is super pumped.
But something is not as it should be.
When Tove launches into the first song, Borderline, which the crowd usually can’t stand still, nothing happens.
The crowd doesn’t move an inch.
Tove anxiously sweeps her eyes over the sea of audience. People look at her tiredly, someone glances at the clock, another talks to the friend next to them.
Tove slowly but surely begins to panic. For several years, she has worked to make a big impact outside Sweden’s borders.
Will her first big, international arena gig be a fiasco?
At this point, Tove Styrke has taken her first step onto an international stage and is at the peak of her career, but the road here has been bumpy to say the least.
