The last two Skambankt concerts in Trondheim were awesome – the one at Samfundet in spring was the best one of the tour, and Trondheim Rocks was huge and simply amazing. So expectations were quite high for this spring’s concert! OK, Skambankt might have forgotten to advertise the current tour, and Byscenen seemed slightly desperate to get people to buy tickets … so hmm. Either the best concert of the tour, or a slightly awkward show in front of a half-empty room?

At first, everything seemed to point towards the latter. =:-/ Support band Frances Wave went on only half an hour after the doors opened, and Byscenen still looked quite empty. But Trondheimers just don’t like to come early … When Skambankt started playing an hour later, the room was packed, and people knew who they had come to see!

No need to pump up the audience, but everyone was in it from the start, singing along, shouting “Hey” and “Skambankt”, singing 7 Nation Army, and generally just having fun! =:-D As always, a few Skambankt concert virgins in the audience (“where have you been before?”), but I’m sure they’ll all be back next time!

The setlist didn’t vary much from what they were playing on the last tours, except that after one of their oldest songs (“Desertør”), they played their newest song “For en evighet”. Or let’s say they tried to play it, the live version might need a little more work (tip: put a lyrics sheet in the single, then someone in the first row can hold it up =;-p ). But that song is gonna work nicely at the shows I think! They promised that next time, they’ll be able to play it a lot better, just like the following “O dessverre” – to which the audience went crazy, of course. =:-)

And then it was time for the encores. “Vår bør” first, then “Mantra” – and then I expected maaaaaybe “Malin” and then the end of the concert. But no, Skambankt obviously did not want to leave the stage (and rightfully so!), so after a bit of discussion, they decided to add a song. Or maybe two? Do we still have the energy for a real hard rock song? Hell yeah we do! They did as well, so we got “Panzersjokk”. Then again the question … should they really play another one? They didn’t want to be the kind of band where everyone looks at their watch and wonders when they are finally done … But ooooookay, one more. So … which one? Yes, I heard people shout for “Malin”, of course. But I also heard someone shout for “KKK”, and I wasn’t the only one to hear it! =:-D And since nobody wanted to go home yet, we got “KKK” first and “Malin” afterwards. Perfect!=:-D Especially since I had to run out to sell some t-shirts during the last song anyway. =:-P

Either way, that was another absolutely amazing concert. I guess “five encores” says it all! And just in case anyone needed another proof: If you’re gonna travel anywhere to see Skambankt, make it Trondheim!
