The final concert of the tour! And conveniently for me, just a train ride away … okay, a 10-hour train ride, but who cares about such details. =;-)

So I made my way up north, and since I was going to the concert alone this time, it was a good opportunity to take along my camera. Taking pictures distracts quite a bit from the concert, so I figured it was a good idea to only take pictures at one of the shows this time. I’ll find out if that was smart when I actually look through my pictures… I haven’t used that camera in three years or so and it sucked when I still knew how to use it, so don’t get your hopes up high – but I think there should be like three, four, five decent pictures. Hopefully. =:-)

Check them out on Facebook!

When I got to Sinus about half an hour before the concert was supposed to start (thus 8.30 – wtf, is Northern Norway in a different time zone or something?!), it was completely empty. I found a handful of people on the balcony, reserving the seats in the front row, but that was it. =:-o So to be honest, my expectations for the concert were rather low …

However, half an hour later it was crowded! It took a while for the audience to get into the concert, and this time it was obvious that people knew the old stuff but not the new. But the old songs they knew and loved! The longer the concert lasted, the more everyone was into it. People on the balcony even got up towards the end! Unfortunately, the longer the concert lasted, the more Terje’s voice disappeared as well … =:-( Well, at least this was the last concert, so time for regeneration now.

As I said, I was distracted by my camera, and I also didn’t write down the setlist like I usually do. But of course I took a picture of it afterwards so I could post it – and also I had noticed in the middle of the concert that they were doing a change on the spot. And true – the setlist said “Låste dører”!!! But we got Mantra instead – not a bad replacement, but still a replacement … =:-(

The full list:

  1. Protest dommer
  2. Voodoo
  3. I dette huset
  4. Kommer snart hjem
  5. O dessverre
  6. Slukk meg (for eg brenner)
  7. Balladen om deg
  8. Levende legende
  9. Vår bør
  10. Stormkast #1
  11. Mantra
  12. Horisonten brenner
  13. Me sa nei
  14. Dynasti
  15. Anonyme hatere
  16. Malin
  17. Skambankt

THANKS so much to Skambankt for an amazing tour! Every time I go into a Skambankt tour, it’s with the feeling that “yep, that’s gonna be fun”. Every time after the first concert I say “WAAAAH! That was so awesome! That’s what I’ve been missing all the time!” – and add some more concerts to my list. =;-) And after each tour I’m blown away and thankful for being able to have so much fun every single night. <3

I cannot wait for the summer festivals. And the tour in fall. There WILL be a tour in the fall, right? RIGHT??? =:-D

Oh. My. God! =:-D

OK, I guess I should expand the report a tiny little bit.. =;-) Actually, I don’t remember any details about the concert except that it was absolutely awesome – so the above sentence really says it all. *g*

From Harstad to Bodø, it was another long drive – including a one-hour ferry trip (which – totally coincidentally =;-) – included a little interview with a certain band that happened to be on the same ferry. So look forward to get to read a little fan interview here soon!).

Bodø was actually the only one of the three concerts where none of us had to drive afterwards, so the evening started with a little hotel room vorspiel. When we got to Sinus about ten minutes after Skambankt were supposed to have started, the venue was almost entirely empty. Nobody in the front row! That was so incredibly inviting that we just couldn’t resist… =;-) So in a way I guess it was good that we only got to see three concerts – we started on the gallery in Tromsø, in Harstad we were somewhere in the middle, and in Bodø right in front. Concert four would have been on stage, I guess. *g*

Anyway. I didn’t expect anything from the concert. Harstad had been amazing, and how should Skambankt top that again? And there was hardly anybody there… Well. totally wrong. By eleven, the place was packed, the audience was hot, Skambankt came on and the place just exploded.

As I wrote before, I don’t have any details to report here. The concert was absolutely fantastic, the audience enthusiastic and shouting and screaming all the time, the band seemed to love the show, and we had SO much fun!

The setlist was the same as in Harstad, except that Skambankt spontaneously added Alarm as last song before the encores, because they just didn’t want to leave, it seemed. =:-)

After the show, we were drenched in beer and sweat, but happy. Or short: Oh. My. God! =:-D

This tour was absolutely amazing – just like my first tour to Northern Norway! Thanks so much to Lena and John for great company – vi sees i februar (og i Tyskland etterpå)! Suzanne, great to see you again, and a big thank you to Katharina and Bernd for the great hospitality! =:-)
And of course: THANK YOU to Skambankt for three amazing concerts! It will be hard to wait three years until the next concerts…

But anyway: I’m really looking forward to the next Nord-Norge tour! =:-D
