Well, I’m back in Denmark again, after a wonderful time in Nottingham!!

As a hole, I’m more than satisfied with the arrangement… a few minus-points to mention, will be the slowly entrance to Rock city… I was in the last 3’rd of the queue and was very disappointed to find out, that Jaded Heart was already going on their final 3-4 tracks when I finally got in – damn!!!
But the songs I did get to see, was absolutely brilliant.. Good performance, great sound and I really hope to get them again someday….
Friday, the doors opened 90 minutes to late and like the day after, a good portion of the audience, didn’t get most of the first band, due to a unusually slow entrance !!! (Stormzone, Grimmet band & to my big surprise, Demon, where the highlights for me).


Crunch – I can’t understand all the harsh words… Imo, the band did start out a little mellow, with sound troubles, especially on the guitar sound…. But as the concert moved forward, I thought they reached a very high level, with a bunch of great melodic tracks in a row…. I found Rowe to be different, but very enjoyable, with a fine pair of pipes! The band was very much approved in my book!

Valentine – Damn, what a great show… and the crowd were going nuts!! Very very cool! Hugo did sing a lot better live, than I would have thought….and what a set of crowd-pleasers – just as it should be to such an event!!!

Jorn – Well, I was a bit disappointed about his choice of tracks… This is a melodic rock-show, so why in god’s name make such a “Heavy-metal” kind of show, with hardly any of his great melodic tunes…. I didn’t find it to be an especially wise move… I also thought he was ridiculous arrogant, especially when his mike died… why not do as for instance Tommy Hart, who borrowed his bass players mike, instead of just stopping the song…. But as usual, Jorn delivered the vocal performance of a God… “Out to every nation” was outstanding!!!

Harem Scarem – Well, it should be no secret, that this was the main reason for my trip to England… Did they deliver?? Yes and No!! As many already has mentioned, the choice of tracks, was almost as stupid as can be, if we look at it through our commercial glasses… I really thought that they would put themselves aside this last time and deliver the melodic rock-show of the century, but instead, they did what they have done so many times before, doing their own weird thing!! Hmmmm..!!!!
This said, they are without a doubt, a class act!! Harry Hess and Pete Lesperence are brilliant performers (not to forget Barry and Creighton) and Harry’s “Backstreet Boys” impersonation was outstanding (while Pete’s amplifier was dead).. They have a good vibe about them… When they delivered some of their crowd-pleasers, the crowd was eating from their hands… Don’t get me wrong, they played all tracks to perfection, it’s just the track selection which didn’t work for me and all others I was talking to… A couple of the tracks from Human Nature, worked surprisingly well!! Great show none the less!!

Tyketto – Damn, this Danny fellow, is just about the nicest guy around. Very humble and very down to earth and the man can sing so the Goosebumps won’t go away again…. I enjoyed the set very very much!!

FM – Let it be said, this was the highpoint for me… I enjoyed every second of this, from start to finish, including the five minutes without power – they are such a bunch of likeable guys… and the deliver the goods to the max. Yes, they only played crowd-pleasers and so what?? The crowd was singing their hearts out on every track – I loved it!!!
I REALLY hope, that these guys will give it another go…

I’m very very grateful to Kieran & Bruce for making this happen… Two wonderful days!!!
