Gyllene Tider tries to break Springsteen’s record
STOCKHOLM – “We want to do something nobody else has done,” says Per Gessle on Expressen. Per and his pals in Gyllene Tider want to break the record number of attendees in Ullevi Stadium, Gothenburg. The record was set by Bruce Springsteen on June 8, 1985 when 64,312 people saw “The Boss” perform there. “We want to draw the bow now that we have the chance,” says Per.
In Göteborgs-Posten Per tells that even though it’s still months before the tour starts, he’s already working with it all day long. “But first we have to get the album done. It must be ready in the beginning of May. In June we’ll have the rehearsals, but I can already say it will sound great,” Per promises.
Expressen also reveals that a Gyllene Tider documentary – probably the one that was shown to the press on Wednesday – will be shown to the fans before each concert during their summer tour.
The fans who bought tickets to Slottsskogsvallen will automatically get a field ticket to Ullevi concert. The extra tickets – 25,000 of them – will go on sale on Wednesday.
(Editor’s note: Our reader Christel Johansson noted that with the additional 25,000 tickets the attendance reaches 50,000 which is still a long way from the record. It wouldn’t be the first time Expressen misquotes people, but here at TDR we still hope there will be a need for another set of extra tickets so that Gyllene Tider would actually break the record.)
