Today 750 lucky fans attended Gyllene Tider’s concert at Hotel Tylösand. The ”secret” gig was confirmed on 11th June and the concert menus at Leifs Terrace were announced at the same time. All the menus were sold out in an hour. The menu was:
Skaldjurscocktail med jordärtskocka och sparris (Seafood cocktail with Jerusalem artichoke and asparagus)
Grillade entrecote med örtaioli samt potatis och grönsakssandwich (Grilled entrecote with herb aioli, potato and vegetable sandwich)
Normal concert tickets went on sale at 17:00 CET on 17th June. They were not sold out that day, but the interest in them was big all around the world, so it was possible even for foreign fans to buy tix.
There were fans who started queueing at about midnight! Hotel manager and staff were very nice, fans got some sweets and coffee while waiting.
Per Gessle & Co. arrived to Hotel Tylösand at about 16:00. Soundcheck started at 17:00 and lasted for less than an hour.
BoJo made it happen: the doors opened at 18:30 for those very few fans who had been waiting there all day and of course, they all made it to the international front row in cosy Leifs Lounge. Entering the venue was very calm: no running, no fuss about it, just walking in patiently.
Seeing those many pics and videos online and reading those fans’ posts on FB who attended the gig, the Fab Five was in top shape tonight and they sounded awesome. Anders Nunstedt from Expressen was in the crowd, too. He had a great (not fantastic, but great, which is still fantastic from him 😉 ) time, as he gave 4 out of 5 for the gig in his review. He probably enjoyed ”Det hjärta som brinner” and ”(Kom så ska vi) Leva livet” the most, as he shared short videos of these songs on Instagram. 🙂 Check our Facebook site for the links.
As Per informed Expressen, GT was digging deep into their archives for this gig and also performed some songs they won’t play later on tour. The setlist consisted of 17 songs including 2 encores. Let’s see which of these they will leave out. ”Arabiska nätter” – which, according to Hallandsposten they haven’t played live since April, 1980 – we probably won’t hear live again. Such a pity, but hey, huge thanx to Mandy Sedgwick, you can watch it online here. 😉
