After one day off, Gyllene Tider visited Stockholm. The band had a real soundcheck in the afternoon where they tested Flickorna på TV2, Vandrar i ett sommarregn and Sommartider.
The doors opened at 17:30, Uno Svenningsson came on stage at 19:30 and GT started at 20:55. The biggest difference vs. other gigs on tour regarding the stage was that this time the sidedrops were changed to screens. In the front, a guy filmed the audience and the band for the screens, but also there were cameras for this reason in the back. The Hux Flux sign above the stage was well visible in the front rows as well.
In the crowd we saw Clarence and Staffan Öfwerman, as well as Lasse Lindbom. Anders Roos placed his cameras all over the stage and Fredrik Etoall was also taking photos this time. He used a plastic glass as a filter, so it will be exciting to see the end result of his shots.
The security team was quite active during the whole night and it was rather because of some troublemakers in the middle of the audience. The ambulance also had to intervene, because someone fainted in the crowd.
Chrissie didn’t show up in Stockholm and Billy also decided to stay away.
Before Tuffa tider, PG said the ukulele is the world’s sexiest instrument and in winter you can bump into Micke Syd on Costa del Sol while he is playing Här kommer alla känslorna on ukulele. Micke said it works very fine with old Spanish ladies and dogs. Haha. The cables had to be rearranged by Micke N-S after Per moved around a bit with the ukulele. When the song was over, PG gave the ukulele back to MNS holding it in his hands behind his own back.
During the first part of the band presentation, Micke Syd went off stage. He put on the T-shirt with the collage of him and his wife, Helena printed on it. So lovely! When Micke introduced Mr. G, he said Per is the one with the greatest ball-sense in the band, Strandvägen’s Maradona. Haha.
Before Min tjej och jag, Micke said his ex-wife is here and he has his wife on his T-shirt. He would dedicate the song to them and to their kids.
The songs that worked best with the audience last night were Puls, Kung av sand and När vi två blir en.
Next stop is Rättvik, Dalhalla on Saturday.
