Misc random notes on Oliver and possibly touring again in the future:
One of Oliver's childhood dreams was to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York and it came true in October 2008. People came from four continents not to miss it. Tickets were from $70 to $250USD. The concert budget went up to almost half a million dollars, but it was really financed by Doors Art foundation.
In 2006, it was Al'Olympia in Paris, in 2010, it was Royal Albert Hall and in 2011 Sydney Opera House.
With all dreams fulfilled (and he turned 65 last year), he is now officially retired. He wants to spend time with and enjoy his grandchildren in the way he missed with his sons, since he spent their childhood performing and touring.
However, he has just released a new album, so anything is possible. He started writing his own songs in his 60's (good ones) so another tour may not be out of the question. He tries to slow down, often repeating 'I'm an old man' at concerts and letting his audience sing without him, which is not something he did when he was younger.
He does not do long concert tours any more, nor does he have concerts in January. And he takes off for the whole summer, spending time on his island and on his boat.
Stjepan recorded an album with Oliver Dragojevic in 2011. Noc Nek' Tiho Svira is available on iTunes and Amazon.
In one interview Stjepan mentioned that as a child, he would climb up on a chair to get close to the radio when Oliver’s songs were being played. He got to meet his idol when he was performing at Royal Albert Hall in London. Oliver was also appearing there at that time. Stjepan and Oliver have appeared in concert together on several occasions, and hope to be able to do so again.
