Gyllene Tider GT40 in Halmstad
This will be short and sweet, due to time and Internet issues! Gyllene Tider opened before a full Brottet venue.
11,000 people came to Brottet, in spite of the horrible weather. It rained the whole day, until 5 minutes before Gyllene Tider entered the stage. It’s amazing, but that’s always they case.. This time, however, their magic didn’t last. During “Kung av sand,” the rain came back, in double force…
With that in mind, the concert went really well. Anders was dressed very sharply! Per wore his normal black grear, MP had a new camo shirt for the tour while Fritte sported a nice beard and a twinkly shirt. Syd was cool as a cucumber.
The stage looked amazing, huge video screens showing different things during different songs, with the GT40 logo splattered all over it now and then.
About the show then, the boys were in good spirits and played nice as always, but I lacked that special opening night energy. Maybe they overpsyched themselves, or maybe the rain overpowered them. Still it was a good opening night. The audience loved it. Many of the songs had been transposed to lower keys for some reason, Per’s voice maybe, and that made them sound both heavier, but also a tad stranger. Easier to sing-along to though, I sound like Johnny Cash today…
Joining the Golden 5 on stage were Malin-My Wall and Dea Norberg, both from Per Gessle solo-fame. They didn’t do much to be noticed, but Dea played the accordion on “Cole Porter” and Malin-My played the fiddle in “Vandrar i ett sommarregn.”
Special mentions: They played “Cole Porter” with full arrangments for the first time ever, and “Vandrar i ett sommarregn” for the first time ever. They opened the concert with the theme from The Pink Panther, like they did in 1981! After the first set of extras, Fritte came on stage wearing his stage gear from 1981 What a sight! A short review, more to come tonight.
