Staying on gig-pics for another while, since I have around a million from these past few weeks… jumping back to the end of May now, and the reason to why I changed my ticket to fly back to Stockholm just a liiiiiiittle bit sooner than expected….
Slash, Myles Kennedy & the Conspirators were playing at the local amusement park – something I obviously couldn’t miss by one puny little day. So since you only pay the entrance fee for gigs there I got there around 6 hours ahead of time and plopped down by the stage to guard my front row spot. Hehe. AMAZING surprise when the band did soundcheck themselves about halfway through my long wait 😀
Slash in comfy pants and beanie 😀
After soundcheck I later found out they went next door to the Abba museum, while I continued guarding my spots from clueless hanging out-teens. Felt like a grumpy old lady. Eventually Sophia joined me and it kicked off!!
They opened with Avalon, which was surprising as it’s not a single, and due to the venue a lot of the crowd were teens who happened to have heard some of the classic guns n roses stuff, but none of their new stuff. I happily bopped along though, of course. Pictured: Frank Sidoris
Todd Kerns rocked out, as usual!
An amazing gig as always, I’m counting seven times that I’ve seen them as a group now (then individually/in other constellations another few times) and I hope to see them another seven times – at least. They change up the setlist every time and give it absolutely 100% every single time. Amazing, amazing guys.
So we waved goodbye to Gronalund for this time and strolled homewards in the summer evening. A pretty perfect evening if you ask me.
