Where the Bands Are

In my blog I've named each entry after a Bruce Springsteen song or a line from a song. I've also sorted them in different categories, some of which with a fixed name. The categories and names are: "Bruce Springsteen songs" [named after the song it's about] "Concert reviews" - fixed name: Where the Bands Are... Continue Reading →

Drive All Night

My all-time favorite performance of Drive All Night is from Gothenburg, July 27th 2012 (The Wrecking Ball Tour). An unforgettable rendition that will forever be imprinted in my heart. The setting was perfect. 20 songs into the already epic show the song's unmistaken piano intro silenced the audience, who turned dead quiet while bringing out their mobile phones,...

Where the Bands Are (Ed Sheeran, 10 July, 2018)

Ed Sheeran's stage setup is deceptively simple: on the surface just a man and his guitar. In reality: a massive sold-out outdoor venue with huge screens showing his every move and grinning phizog and a bloke on hand to pass him his pre-tuned acoustic guitar.

The Promise

It's June 25th 2016, a nice sunny Midsummer's Day in Gothenburg, Sweden. 62 676 fans, packed in the pitch and in the stands of Ullevi, eagerly awaits the arrival of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. It's the first of three concerts in Gothenburg (the River 2016 tour). Finally Bruce Springsteen strolls onto stage,... Continue Reading →

Where the Bands Are (Foo Fighters, 5 June, 2018)

Foo Fighters' last show in Ullevi (June 12, 2015) is a modern classic: already in the second song, during the audience's favourite Monkey Wrench, singer/frontman Dave Grohl takes an unluckily step and falls off the stage slap-bang down on the ground. Nobody understands what has happened at first, but from the look on drummer Taylor... Continue Reading →

Konzerte. Anders hören mit den Hörgeräten. Ein bisschen Erfurt. Ein bisschen Wien. Und hin und wieder Bruce Springsteen.
