Well, what can I say? It was my first MK concert and it was wonderful. On the plane to Stockholm my sister and I were looking through some of the lyrics of the songs to prepare ourselves. The guy sitting next to me then started talking to me and we talked about MK for the rest of the flight. It was very nice to meet another MK fan who'd also been reading the web sites and all that. (see the previous review by Micke Mus ;)) Outside the Globe Arena I decided that I would wait for Mark and the band, hoping to get some autographs. My sister joined me. After about an hour or so, two fans from Dalarna arrived and joined us. Some buses from the UK were parked in the parking lot and we started talking to the people inside. Turns out they were Mark's techs, but they didn't know when he would arrive, so we just continued to wait. Around 5.30pm they gave up. My sister and I waited for another hour or so, then we gave up too. Better luck next time, I guess :) I agree with most of Micke's comments about the songs and have some comments of my own to add: Why aye man - the way it suddenly started in the middle of the intro music was great. A great version of it, and it doesn't hurt that I really like the song :) Sultans of Swing - Wow. My favourite song, and an excellent version. Mark really made the guitar cry and sing. During the long solo at the end he just kept on giving us proof of his excellent guitar skills, I though it would never end, and I almost wish he would've gone on forever Done with Bonaparte - The bouzoki(sp?) really fits this song! Song for Sonny Liston - After the previous song, Mark suddenly started jamming something nice and bluesy. I haven't heard anything like it on the recordings from the other concerts. The jamming then turned into Song for Sonny Liston, a song which I didn't like very much on the album but was very nice live. I wish he would've played Our Shangri-La and Wild Theme too, but I was very satisfied anyway, it was a great day which I'll remember forever. I saw the towel incident too, and I also saw that some lucky guy got a pair of drumsticks from Danny. Well.. I can't wait 'til next time, see you all then!

Bra konsert på det stora hela. Jag satt nere på parketten. Fick dessutom med mig en inspelning hem. (: Tycker som föregående recensent, förutom att jag inte är så förtjust i "Song for Sonny Liston", en av de i mitt tycke svagare låtarna från nya skivan.

Finally it was the day, after almost four years of waiting since the last concert I saw in Stockholm, it was time for me to fly to Stockholm. Some days before the concert I just felt like sending an e-mail to Guy and the other guys and just to wish them a very welcome to Sweden and hoping they would have a nice time here. I hope they appreciate that. At the airport I was a little late for the boarding so I took the first and best seat in the aircraft. After a while I couldn't help hearing those two who was sitting next to me talking about song titles of MK. I asked them if they were going to the concert, and they were. They even had the lyrics on paper, cool. Later in the venue I met them again. It's a small world. In Stockholm I hooked up with some good friends who was going with me to the concert. We spent the day together, a very nice time and a fine spring day. About 6.30 p.m. we were in the line to the entrance for the venue. We bought some tour stuffs before going to our seats. Our seats were on the gallery. Then about eight it was time... 1. Why Aye Man Very good opening song. 2. Walk Of Life Not so slow as others has felt. 3. What It Is 4. Sailing To Philadelphia A little bit different from the album, a more talk singing version, but very nice played. 5. Romeo & Juliet A lovely love song. 6. Sultans Of Swing Wow! What a fantastic version this was. After this one Mark introduced the band and it was time for the slow “sitting down” part of the concert with some tea drinking. 7. Done With Bonaparte 8. Song For Sonny Liston A cool song and I like Marks dark voice in this one. 9. Donegan's Gone 10. Rüdiger 11. Boom, Like That Mark introduced this one as ”A song about fast food”. My favourite song on the new album. 12. Speedway At Nazareth It was loud at the end but very good. 13. Telegraph Road What a long and fantastic song this is, with amazing guitar playing. Encores 14. Brothers In Arms What is there to say... a twenty years old classic song when I just closed my eyes and enjoyed it. 15. Money For Nothing Another classic. I would like to hear the whole intro sometime on a live concert. 16. So Far Away ”Only old goodies” as my friend said when this song begun. A fine end song of the concert. What a night to remember this was, and very good show too. This man know for sure how do his work, he plays the guitar in an amazing way. The others in the band were great too. I think the sound was pretty good, and I liked the light show. In the end I saw Mark threw his towel. I thought it was for the audience (maybe it was too), but when I read Guy Fletchers diary I saw that they were disappointed with the security who ignored the pre-show instruction to allow people to come to the front of the stage during the show. I was hoping to hear The Mist Covered Mountains/Wild Theme, but didn't. Well, that doesn't matter after a night like this and you can't get everything always. I wished that I had the possibility to see some more concerts on this tour. But I will live long on this one, at least until the next time... Thank you guys for a nice concert and a fine memory. Hope to see you back soon. Micke Mus Sweden
