The 5th gig on Per Gessle’s summer tour has definitely left the crowd and the gang breathless. Mazarin entering the Swedish vinyl charts at No. 1 must have had a good effect on Mr. G’s anyway great mood and the gang was ass-kicking as well.
Approximately 4500 people gathered in Töreboda at the square to see Mr. G and they gave their best. They were probably the most active and loudest crowd so far, singing along during the whole concert and clapping hard during almost each song.
One of the sponsors, Vera & John prepared some gadgets (caps, inflatable cheering gloves and huge balloons) for the event. Their brand colour is magenta and so the gadgets were available in that colour. The big magenta balloons were let fly over the crowd and during The Look even Per kicked in one of them when it was getting close to him. THAT moment you can see at appr. 1:45 in THIS video. Too cool!
The setlist was changed a bit. One important difference vs. Dalhalla is that Tittar på dej när du dansar got back. Woohoo! Keep it in! No LTYH was played and the band even left out Honung och guld. Småstadsprat they performed right after It Must Have Been Love and it fitted there perfectly.
The uptempo songs turned the whole area into a big party place and ending the show with Sommartider was one of the best decisions. Such a hit as the closing song of the event leaves everyone wanting for more and that’s the way it should be. So let’s hope Per keeps it this way and from now on, all concerts end with Sommartider.
The show in Töreboda is considered to be the best so far on this tour! Let’s see what happens next time!
Grymt gig igår i Töreboda. Fullt hus och fullt drag. Tack alla. Syns igen. /P.
