The second concert took place in Lysekil on the west coast of Sweden – over 14,000 people attended this gig. Gyllene Tider got to the concert arena by boat as Expressen reports (full gallery to be found here). Per Gessle and other band members were intreviewed on board and to just quote Gessle: “Our songs are in the Swedish people DNA code. We have audience from 6 to 60. It’s great to see that.” The boat trip probably inspired the band to play “Man blir yr” live for the very first time.

In the Bohuslaningen article, two fan stories were presented – including Gyöngyver Simon from Hungary who came at 4AM (!!!) and Eliza Roszkowska-Öberg (she came at 5AM!), Swedish-Polish fan that you may remember from “Att vara Per Gessle” book. More reports from the concert to follow today and tomorrow. Additional report was published by Expressen – as it wasn’t Nunstedt, so everything was stricly positive where journo calls the concert as a “classic summer dream” where “Gyllene Tider manages to deliver: pulse, feeling and a lot of love.”

As for the concert itself, it was shorter than the Halmstad premiere. “Dags att…” was skipped and “Vera” was replaced with the first single off the latest album “Man blir yr”. According to those who were there – it was a much better choice for beer stands owners.
