Yo, here's the setlist:
Un chien d'espace
A Pacific Sonata >
Ship of Fools >
Go Around Once
California (I'm so sold)
Spin, Spin, Spin
Bartok of the Universe
Go to California
Walking on the Water
Length: more than 3 hours! They started some time around 21:40 and ended about 00:45. So yeah.
Un Chien must have been over 40 minutes! I didn't see what the time was when it started, but when Un Chien ended it was 22:23. So yeah. Amazing version. They started with a long spaceout jam before launching into the jaw-droppingly beautiful, spine-shivering, goosebump-inducing first part of Un Chien. Wow. I don't really have any words.
Taifun likewise was incredible.
The (semi-)acoustic set was nice, and afaik we got the first live versions of "Go Around Once", "Stardust", "The Maypole", and "California (I'm so sold)". Maybe also first acoustic live "Spin spin spin"?
Tomas did a drum solo in "Walking on the water".
Bent & Snah danced in sync in the middle of "Mountain" …December 10, 2017 at 01:01 #31886
Absolutely a stunning show!December 10, 2017 at 01:04 #31887ThorEgilParticipant
The best I've seen from the boys ever!December 10, 2017 at 01:17 #31888TraktorBassParticipant
They started 21:41.
Probably the fastest spacedog I have ever seen, and definitely the first moshpit I have seen at a MP show. Kids went nuts to Bartok and The Tower.
Mountain was a nice surprise, and I thought for a minute or two they were going to segue from Superstooge into The Wheel or Manmower. Alas, they did not.
I love the energy the key/trumpet/egg/guitar/korps-guy brings in! (I forget his name).
Also, nice to meet you ThorEgil, however brief our encounter. Look forward to seeing your shots.December 10, 2017 at 01:19 #31889
They did the Oslo Konserthus trick version of Un Chien as a starter. Then the real fun begun…
K. Lo contributionâ€™s in act and mood is just amazing…. Verkstedhallen gig kicking off the
tour and tonightâ€™s show canâ€™t be compared at all.
Hearing the opening of Taifun… itâ€™s like a lost child coming back,
a feeling too complex to explain.December 10, 2017 at 01:37 #31890TomcatParticipant
Sweeet!December 10, 2017 at 08:02 #31891Punj LizardParticipant
Cool set.December 10, 2017 at 09:34 #31892FlippernParticipant
Amazing concert, and what a setlist! I especially loved hearing Go Around Once and Bedroom Eyes. I did not see that coming, for sure!
Also blown away by Kristoffer Loâ€™s contributions. Heâ€™s got a lot of stage precence and attitude, and he fits right in. He also had some solo vocal lines on Bartok, which was very cool. Everything sounded more full and complete with him compared to the previous show in Trondheim.
This was deifinately the best MP show in a long time for me. Canâ€™t wait â€˜til next time!December 10, 2017 at 09:57 #31893ThorEgilParticipant
If Snah is God – then, what is Kristoffer?December 10, 2017 at 09:58 #31894TomcatParticipant
Lord K!December 10, 2017 at 10:10 #31895DarmokParticipant
Wow! Please tell me this was recorded!December 10, 2017 at 10:29 #31896FlippernParticipant
Could he be the Messiah?! HahaDecember 10, 2017 at 11:16 #31897Johnny_HeartfieldParticipant
Rather Lo K. (byt not Lyesmith). Just a nordic godDecember 10, 2017 at 12:35 #31898The Other AndersParticipant
One taper was thrown out for taping.
Anyone else with better luck?
If not, I seriously suggest that the band releases this concert officially and complete, provided that they themselves recorded it. Why else throw a taper out?
I am also aware that the band probably didn't have anything to do with it, it's probably just an over-eager security person.
Someone who was there who can elaborate?
Anyway, it's time for some serious Roadworkness, right about now!!December 10, 2017 at 12:44 #31899The Other AndersParticipant
@mikke: Lucky you and everyone who got to see the first and the last concert of the tour, so to say. But Un Chien concluded the first set at Konserthuset in Oslo, it didn't open it.
The three concerts they opened with Un Chien on this tour were Bremen, Brussels and Cologne.
