Gyllene Tider rocked at Allsång på Skansen

Gyllene Tider performed today in the premiere show of this year’s Allsång på Skansen. The Fab Five already appeared in this show in 2004, when they played ”Sommartider” and ”En sten vid en sjö i en skog”. For today’s performance they chose the ass-kicking ”Det blir aldrig som man tänkt sej” from the new album as a starter after 2 songs sung by the showman. It sounded incredibly awesome live! First I thought ”why the crowd is sitting still when this song makes you jump and shout???”, but then I was informed the sitting audience is not allowed to stand up. Well, rules are to break them, aren’t they? 😉

After their first song, there was a very short interview with Per and Anders, then they went off the stage and some other artists appeared to perform. At the end of Allsång there came an interesting medley: ”Flickorna på TV2”, ”Juni, juli, augusti” and ”Sommartider”. One of their best medleys ever and oh, yes! Now this made the audience stand up and dance and sing out loud. The medley made me think that the guys might be brave enough not to play any of these latter 3 songs as separate ones during the tour, but in a medley and this way more unexpected songs can get on the setlist, not mentioning more songs from their latest album, Dags att tänka på refrängen.

After the TV show ended at 21:00 CET, there was an extra song from Gyllene Tider on the web broadcast: ”Gå & fiska!”. The crowd was still standing and enjoying the show to the full and Per was throwing away plecs to the crowd while performing. Some more talking with GT after the song and Micke Syd was throwing away his drumsticks to the audience.

Some more details must be mentioned: the guys looked fantastic and they were in top top top shape; Leif on Micke Syd’s drumkit was too cool; Mr. Gessle’s boots with those red skulls were incredibly hot AND the new plecs looked just awesome on the stand!

Bring on 5th July! Oh, no! First bring on tomorrow for those who are lucky enough to attend the Leifs Lounge gig!

Now it’s 100% sure: Gyllene Tider at Allsång på Skansen

In an earlier article of ours we informed you about a rumour that according to Aftonbladet, Gyllene Tider will participate in this year’s Allsång på Skansen. Per kind of confirmed the rumour by sharing the article, but now that Expressen is writing about it and Micke Syd confirmed GT’s appearance in an e-mail to Expressen, we can be 100% sure.

Micke Syd promised some new and some old songs to be played at Skansen. About how it feels to perform at Skansen he writes:

It feels good. It’s a beautiful place with an audience singing amazingly well.

 

It’s still not clear which Tuesday Gyllene Tider is there, but the complete list of artists will be announced on 11th June, so then we might know more about the date as well.

Gyllene Tider at Allsång på Skansen

According to Aftonbladet, Gyllene Tider will most probably be one of the guests at Allsång på Skansen. SVT has not yet confirmed the list of artists.

Allsång på Skansen (Sing-along at Skansen) is a Swedish show held at Skansen, Stockholm. SVT broadcasts it on Tuesdays between 8 pm and 9 pm CET every summer. The audience (10 000 – 25 000 people) is supposed to sing-along with musical guests to well-known Swedish songs.

This year’s Allsång på Skansen premieres on 25th June (lasts until 13th August). Looking at the tour agenda, the Fabulous Five are free each Tuesday, but might be busy with travelling from one place to another, so as the GT tour starts on 5th July and ends on 10th August, the guys – if they really take part in this year’s program – may appear at the show on 25th June, 2nd July or 13th August. We’ll let you know about the exact date once it is announced.

Gyllene Tider already appeared in this program in 2004 and Per also took part in it in 2003 and 2007. Here are some of their performances at those shows:
