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:
- Juni, juli, augusti
- Gå & fiska!
- Man blir yr
- När vi två blir en
- Ljudet av ett annat hjärta
- (Kom så ska vi) Leva livet
- Det blir aldrig som man tänkt sej
- (Dansar inte lika bra som) Sjömän
- Det hjärta som brinner
- Min tjej och jag
- Kung av sand
- Ska vi älska, så ska vi älska till Buddy Holly
- Flickan i en Cole Porter-sång
- Det är över nu
- Dags att tänka på refrängen
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. 😉
