After a day off, Gyllene Tider feat. Dea Norberg and Malin-My Wall visited Uppsala for yet another sold-out show. The venue was the city’s botanical garden, just like 2 years ago on Per’s tour, where Micke Syd appeared as a guest star during Sommartider. Last night’s gig was so sold out (8-9000 people) that some of those who couldn’t get in watched it from the Castle’s roof, for example. Haha.
After skipping 2 concerts, Anders Roos was back to take pictures of the Uppsala gig and Åsa was back too and filmed a lot, as well as Micke Syd’s wife, Helena.
The guys and girls on stage put 110% energy into the show. All of them were top! Duracell bunny Per was bouncing and stomping during the whole concert. MP was a pure rocker. Anders got to the left side of the stage already at the beginning, so now he moves a bit more and he is smiling much more. Göran Farfisa Guru Fritzon was also on a high, both when he played his Farfisa and the melodika on Tuffa Tider. Also, at the end of the show he came more to the front to thank the crowd. He was cool! Micke Syd also had his rock ’n’ roll moments behind his drum and then enjoyed very much being in the limelight on his trummis song. His intro talk was much fun last night too, starting with not being able to button up his jacket. He said his wife, Helena was watching him laughing and Per’s wife, Åsa was laughing at him too. Micke Syd also managed to make everyone snap their fingers for the song’s intro. It looked and sounded nice. The ladies were fantastic again. Their backing vocals, as well as Malin-My’s playing all the instruments and the girls’ dancing choreographies are just excellent.
Among the changing songs, last night it was Vandrar i ett sommarregn that was played and Det kändes inte som maj got back to the setlist. Woohoo! Instead of Skrot och korn, Billy got back too. Per introduced Vandrar i ett sommarregn as a song they all liked from Puls and they celebrated it with never playing it live. Until this tour.
The crowd was very loud, they were singing along all songs and it was great to hear. The most active they were on Flickorna på TV2, on the intro to Det kändes inte som maj and Sommartider.
The band presentation had a little twist in Uppsala. Per was kidding Malin-My so hard that she is from Hong Kong that he accidentally skipped MP. He already wanted to be joking to ask who else is left (thinking of Micke Syd), but then Anders pointed at MP and then it dawned on PG that he forgot to introduce him, the boogie king.
Another twist came from the audience’s side. Namely, someone wanted to throw a pink bra on stage during Tylö Sun. Unfortunately, it didn’t reach the stage, fell to the ground in front of it. Well, I was at a Backstreet Boys concert not too long ago and there were at least 10 bras flying during the whole concert and even there the guys couldn’t really do anything with the flying lingerie. I wonder what Per’s reaction would have been to it if it reached him… Or MP’s, because actually, the bra was flying into his direction. Haha.
The breaks before the encores were very loud, the crowd filled them with noise. It was lovely to hear them wanting GT back on stage so badly. When the guys and girls came back for the 2nd encore, Per asked the audience if they wanted more. We shouted yes and he said well, there is no other gig until Wednesday, so it’s OK. Haha.
The concert ended with När alla vännerna gått hem as usual and tons of people switched on the light on their mobiles. It looked very nice. After the last song, the guys and girls waved goodbye and took a bow and then Micke Syd took the remaining picks off Per’s mic stand and threw them to his wife to distribute them. Hm. Well… not the best way for a fan to get hold of a PG guitar pick. Mr. G should distribute his plecs himself. So next time hopefully he throws many more plectrums to the crowd during the show. Last night he wasn’t in a real pick-throwing mood. So many stayed on the mic stand that Micke N-S didn’t even have to add new ones for the encores. So maybe next time.
Now Tuesday off and Wednesday is concert day again. Next stop: Lysekil!
