Singing in the rain
HALMSTAD (UPDATED) – The gates opened at 5 o’clock, Örjans vall was transformed into a huge carnival area, with GT-karaoke, food stands, beer stands and the merchandise stands, which featured loads of different things.
At 7 The Latin Kings came out, were truly unnoticed by the audience, so they left after 25 minutes. Pugh Rogefeldt joined later and played most of his hits, but in the downpour most people only cared about the wetness…
Gyllene Tider entered the stage a few minutes after 9, and then the rain was forgotten. The boys played for almost two hours. The show consisted of Per’s standard banter, with some additions from Micke “Syd”. Gyllene Tider played old material for the most part, the setlist is almost identical to the one from 1996. After only nine songs the audience cried for “Här kommer alla känslorna” so Per said sure, we’ll play that, and they did. While Per and MP performed the number the rest of the band left the stage. Micke “Syd” explains “It’s Per’s solo song, then he should perform it solo as well.” Per also tells that they had planned to play “Känslorna” but not at that point in the show, but since the audience demanded it they decided to go for it!
The concert got raving reviews by Expressen’s Anders Nunstedt (5/5) and lukewarm reviews by Aftonbladet’s Per Bjurman (3/5). At this point TDR has not yet seen what Hallandsposten’s Jan-Owe Wikström has written about the show(s).
Enjoy the setlist and the fact that the Thursday concert was performed in perfect weather and with an even better Gyllene Tider on stage…
