Time for poll #3. In this case it’s the turn for Per’s English album “The World According To Gessle”. We took the version with the extra track Love Doesn’t Live Here for this poll. The other demos & extras will be included in another poll later on.
Hard to believe that this album turns 20 this year! The album is for me timeless (like many of Per’s penned songs) and always amazing to listen to.
I’ve been thinking of Per’s question regarding what we would love to hear or not. I didn’t really make a list of songs but here some ideas of what would be a super beautiful evening:
- What about a small “TWATG-20th-Anniversary-Party” during the tour. What would be cool is something like what Bruce Springsteen did during his The River Tour: he played the whole album “The River” (released in 1980) in all shows. In our case it could be with TWATG?
- Or similar to above but with the other solo albums too. For example “The PG-evening” or the “Mazarin-Evening”. It would be a bit more tricky for us to be able to catch all shows with “special evenings” but hey, a tour should be fun or?
- Reserve a 1-2 song window during the show to take “live requests” from the audience. That would mean a lot of flexibility from the band and improvising though… Could you imagine this happening?
- A very long show, at least longer than the shows we have seen so far which were approx. 2 hours long. I would love a 3-hour show for instance. I know that playing full albums in between would mean even a 4-hour-long-Per-concert. But would you mind? That would be something huh? In any case, the expected 2-hour show is definetely too short!
