I think I can get used to that … vorspiel at home, then half an hour stroll down to the center and Byscenen for the Skambankt concert! =:-D

I was really curious how the concert would turn out. I had seen the setlist of the earlier concerts of the tour, and it looked really … interesting. =;-) Starting out with Kald kald natt? No Slukk meg? But some really old songs back in the set?

Also, the concert was far from sold out, just like the concert in Oslo the day before – no surprise if there’s basically no promotion for the concert and the dates aren’t even announced until just before the tour starts … And if there’s just a few people at a concert, you won’t have a great atmosphere. =:-/

Luckily, it turned out it wasn’t as bad as I had feared. We arrived just before Skambankt were about to go on stage, and Byscenen looked crowded. OK, some parts were tarped off, but the room seemed filled. Yay! The atmosphere turned out to be pretty good – no comparison to Samfundet in March, but people were into the concert, moving, singing along, and randomly being reprimanded by the security for dancing. *rolleyes*

As expected, Skambankt started with Kald kald natt – hmm. Not sure if that works so well. I think it’s just too calm and slow to start off the concert, even though the intro with the choir is pretty cool. What I loved though was using Anonyme hatere as first song of the encores – that worked just perfectly! Better than to start of with that song. And they need to start the concert somehow, so I guess Kald kald natt is as good as any song. =;-)

I just LOVED the old songs they included in the set – Desertør, Alarm, and Bak låste dører. It’s been a while since I last heard them live, and I didn’t even realize I’d missed them. But oh yes, I had!! Even though Alarm is a bit tricky because you have to suddenly turn invisible in the middle of the song to prevent being dragged up on stage to count in. =;-) Seemed like the whole audience managed to do that this time, ’cause they didn’t take up anyone. *g* Terje just started the song up again – catching Børge by surprise, so they had to try again.

I had a little “no, come on, they are NOT doing this” moment after Voodoo when they suddenly started playing something that sounded tremendously like … Født på ny. OK, it turned out to be the Vår bør intro, so I guess my mind was just playing tricks on me, ’cause I’ve never heard the similarity before. Even though it would have been ridiculously funny if they had actually played Født på ny. *g*

There was hardly any talk or any “special” interaction apart from screaming Hey and Oh and singing and counting down from 18, so there’s not much more to report here. Skambankt played a tight concert without breaks and pauses. Great fun, awesome seeing them again, and we all got a good dose of rock!

Here’s the full setlist:
