Over 58,900 people see Gyllene Tider at Ullevi
GOTHENBURG – Gyllene Tider tried hard to beat Bruce Springsteen’s attendance record at Ullevi and they did! Over 58,900 fans (58,954 according to Expressen; 58,984 according to Aftonbladet) sang along with the band yesterday night.
And all the feelings came all at once. “This is the biggest thing that ever happened in my life, after my children being born” said Göran Fritzon to Aftonbladet. “I don’t really know what to say. I’m speechless,” added Per Gessle. “It was really hard to keep the tears in the first couple of songs,” confessed Micke “Syd” Andersson, “my voice trembled when I sang the backing vocals.”
After the show the band went to the VIP area to celebrate the record with their families and friends who had come to support the band. Among these friends were Marie Fredriksson and Mikael Bolyos. “It was great that Marie could come,” told Per to Aftonbladet, “she said the concert was fantastic, but she is actually a big GT-fan,” added a laughing Per.
