Gyllene Tider tries to beat The Boss’ attendance record

STOCKHOLM (UPDATED) - Gyllene Tider will try to beat Bruce Springsteen's [new] attendance record at Ullevi on Saturday, according to an article published today in Aftonbladet.

  The Boss gathered 58,310 people at Ullevi last summer and Gyllene Tider has so far sold 58,000 tickets, including the 600 that were put on sale yesterday. So, there are only 311 – to be exact – tickets left to sell to beat the record.

  The stage will be built today and once it is up, the concert organizers will see if they can fit more people in the stadium.

  "It would be fantastic to beat The Boss," Per Gessle told Aftonbladet's reporter Linda Hjertén. "I think beating such a record would go along with the whole tour experience." Per added that he would pinch himself "to make sure I'm not dreaming."

  Update: 500 tickets have been released today. They are available at Ticnet's local ticket offices and at ATG's offices.
