As I am trying to write down a summary about tonight’s show a lot of thoughts go through my head and I don’t know where to start.
One may think people here up north are colder and that as audience it may have been boring. I must say, not at all! It was a pleasant surprise to see and hear people clap from song two on. Still a bit shy to stand up that early but some did. And more and more towards the end. Efter Stormen was a biiiig party! Marie was welcomed by a standing audience after the short break … during which many people shouted ‘en gång till’ (which I didn’t hear at many shows before).
The front row was again full of fans from Uruguay, Spain, Austria and Germany to mention a few. As Micke told us after the show, they were surprises to see us here… that far up north. It was worth it because the concert rocked big time and we had loooots of fun!!
Today I realised with more intensity, maybe because I am extra enjoying these last shows… always keeping in the back of my head that it’s over soon, with how much passion and respect the band play and perform Marie’s songs, every note, every chord that is played. And that the band is enjoying it the same way we do.
Marie left the audience mouth wide open once again with her performance. I found Så skimrande amazingly beautiful. And Ett bord i solen. And … I could go on. It’s hard to pick! Sometimes you sit there and you cannot believe it can be so beautiful and touching. Out of this world! It was great to see her all smiles when she realises the first row is full of familiar faces and interacted with the audience a lot.
As I mentioned before, Marie and Micke taked with the fans and afterwards we talked to a very happy band.
See you tomorrow! We will give our best and we will surely have a blast!
Articles, setlist and all … tomorrow!
