[u]INCREDIBLE![/u] I think that this show was better than the one in Stockholm except for the encores, not that they were bad in Karlstad but that we where allowed to stand up in from of the stage in Stockholm. Speedway At Nazaret was incredible, what an amazing solo! Marbletown- Had an awsome, inprovised, solo by Mark, so great! And at last, sitting 2 meters from Mark I shouted at him after "Going Home" and he listened, I gav him a letter where I had written a lots of things :) How much his music means to me and I'd asked him to visit my webpage to listen to my music ; ) A long shot but at least he took the letter. The show was rated 4/5 by a local magazine that loved the show! Got a lots of great pictures and recorded it!

Excellent show! On the whole the usual setlist, including Postcards from Paraguay but not Daddy's Gone to Knoxville. Attendance: 5.400 Mark's soloing did lack some punch in Sultans and What it is, and these were played a bit slow. The rest of the show, however, was marvellous. HFB and Marbletown had been rearranged to unimaginable heights, with interesting new parts. Mark's playing was absolutely top notch in these, as well as Speeday and TR; these four were highlight . He sang pretty good too, for the most part. True Love and Shangri-La sparkled thanks to his voice rather than the guitar. On the whole a very broad musical experience. I would have preferred a rock song rather than Shangri-La as an encore, but the tempo of the concert was overall good, without a sleepy Rüdiger, for instance. Look forward to Stockholm tonight. I should say that Mark was in a superb mood! Smiling, almost joking at times, even screaming like a chicken somewhere in the middle of the set! A loud yell in response to the wonderful audience reception.
