Gyllene Tider sommaren 2013

TV4 broadcasted an approximately 70-minute-long cut of Gyllene Tider’s summer tour. Unfortunately, it is available only in Sweden, but here you can read a short summary of it and see some screenshots.

It’s a fantastic documentary with tons of live footage from several shows, mainly Skövde, Eskilstuna, Stockholm and Ullevi, Göteborg. Grumpy Production did a great job! The whole program is nicely cut, it’s of very high quality and contains a great mix of interviews with band members, their travelling around Sweden, joking and having fun backstage, performing live on stage, crowd scenes, the walk to the stage, short interviews with fans and Ms Dimberg, Thomas Johansson, Micke Syd’s mum and dad, Mats Olsson journalist, etc., the stage decoration being cut into parts and signed by the Golden Guys, then given to fans at the last show and we can see some meet & greet scenes. One can even get to know the recipe of a perfect cocktail from Micke Syd. Oh! And the yellow radio has an important role again.

My gosh! Even without seeing a complete concert in this docu you can relive the tour. You feel you are back in time, it’s summer, you are standing in the front row and going crazy for Gyllene Tider, singing along, jumping and shouting. Awesome!

 

The songs (no complete songs, but almost) you can hear & see performed live:

  1. Juni, juli, augusti
  2. Sommartider
  3. Gå & fiska!
  4. Man blir yr

  6. Ljudet av ett annat hjärta
  7. (Kom så ska vi) Leva livet
  8. Det blir aldrig som man tänkt sej
  9. (Dansar inte lika bra som) Sjömän
  10. Det hjärta som brinner
  11. Min tjej och jag

You can hear some other short GT tunes as well, however, I missed Flickorna på TV2 and Billy from the live footage, but something must be left for the DVD, too. 😉 No release date is set for the DVD yet, but hopefully, we don’t have to wait too long. Provide us with a live CD, too, please!

 

PS: You can see PG wearing glasses in the docu for a short while. And I’m not talking about sunglasses. 😉

Marie Fredriksson – a set of lovely backstage moments

While we are still badly missing the tour, I’ve put together some of those nice videos in which Marie is appearing during backstage rehearsals. You may remember Per once wrote this on Roxette Official: ”How could Marie go wrong with a band like this?” From these videos you can see that she didn’t go wrong with them at all. Pure fun!

By the way, once in a while it would be great to see some pics or videos of how Ms Effe is doing these days. Short videos from the studio where she’s working on her solo project would just be awesome. Until then, enjoy this set of lovely backstage moments.

Grattis på födelsedagen, Marie!

NOTP tour: Follow the crew behind the scenes, tourbook!

NOTP tourbook Germany feat. RoxetteSome members of the German proms staff have started to report from the tour regularly. A nice addition to Per’s videos!

Menwhile, many reports from visitors have already appeared at the official NOTP forums. The huge majority is very positive about Roxette’s performance. The official site now also features an online version of the German tourbook. Klick here!

Update: Don’t forget choir singer Maurice! About Berlin he writes on his blog:

In any case, the audience reaction was a real success: Enthusiasm at the arrival of Heaven 17, triumph for Alan Parsons and what about Roxette? It was as if the whole of Sweden had made an appointment at the O2 World…

Online translator recommended. 😉

NOTP tour: A view behind the scenes

‘Fine Fleur’ choir member Maurice shares a view into the backstage area with a video he posted to Youtube. It features a nice soundtrack! He’s also offering large photo galleries with pictures from the rehearsals incl. Roxette.

As you can read on his blog, the Roxette camp wasn’t the only target of the flu: Many members of the choir got so ill that they couldn’t perform. The leader had serious problems to get enough singers on stage for some days…
