To right away answer yesterday’s question if Skambankt could top the concert once more: Hell yeah!

Although I have to say I’m not sure Skambankt had so much to do with this … they played another awesome concert, but it felt even better because of the audience. A sold-out Folken, filled with fans! The atmosphere was awesome, and at least in the front, everybody was moving. As always, I was standing at the side (I’m just too old for the middle *g*), and even there, people were dancing and jumping, hands in the air. But in a very nice way, and everyone was enjoying the concert. Way less mobiles than yesterday, no elbows in the side, no angry or bored faces. But lots of fans that knew every song, were singing along and were focussed on the concert. I loved it!! =:-D

The setlist differed a bit from the last few concerts. Slukk meg was back (yay!!), but both Desertør and Panzersjokk were gone (boooh!). And the order was changed a bit – probably to move Me sa nei and the guest performance by Anders further out in the set. And that worked even better than yesterday! Anders had adopted the Skambankt dress code, he played the verses all alone, and he did so well that Panzer turned up his amp in the middle of the song, before Terje started the Wall of Death. =;-) And Anders already picked up how to be a rockstar. He didn’t flinch when he was drowned in beer, and before he went off stage, he threw his plek into the audience.

But he wasn’t the only “rockstar to be”. There was a boy in the front, sitting on the railing, celebrating every song (and posing for every camera *g*). Before Skambankt played Alarm, they took him up on stage, introduced him to the audience, and had him count in – which he managed perfectly. And how to get back? Well, really easy. Backliner Kjetil picked him up and threw him back into the audience. Yes, THREW. Of course the audience caught him and carried him on their hands; it did look a bit scary though. At least it must have been for his dad who was stuck in the front row. =;-)

There was quite a bit of talk again, much more than in Trondheim, but not much that I remember. In the beginning, Terje pointed out that it would be “jævlig lenge” until they would do a real tour again (nooooo!). Then, before Bak låste dører, he explained that this song was for their old drummer. “He’s not with us anymore …” Shocked faces in the audience. “Uuh, I mean he’s alive! He’s just not with us on stage …”

Obviously, Skambankt didn’t want the concert to end and dragged it out before the last song Stormkast, but still we got only two encores … *pff* Anonyme hatere with lots of middle fingers, and then Min eliksir, where everyone was supposed to get moving once more. Well, if only there was a way to move to that song … *sigh*

Still, it was an awesome ending to an even better concert. It’s cool to see how Skambankt manage to top their concerts again and again … This was amazing. So let’s hope they break their promise to not tour again any time soon!
