Bruce Springsteen koncert m.m.

Bedre sent end aldrig – som jeg skrev i mit tidligere indlæg sÃ¥ var vi til Bruce Springsteen koncert i Parken søndag den 29. juni!

Vi havde jo været til min fars 60 Ã¥rs fødselsdagsfest dagen for inden, sÃ¥ vi kom i seng kl. ca. 3.00 og kørte mod sjælland ved 9-10 tiden 🙂

Super-duper-ferieplanlæggeren Kim Holst (hans eget udsagn) havde arrangeret indlogeringen, dette foregik pÃ¥ hotel Marriott ved Kalvebod Brygge (se billeder af vort værelse/udsigt forneden). Her mødtes vi sÃ¥ med Anne, Lisa, Jan og Kim som vi skulle følges til koncerten med. Vi startede med at gÃ¥ IDA’s café i nærheden af hotellet for at fÃ¥ en let frokost, derefter gik vi en tur rundt i omrÃ¥det og sluttede sÃ¥ pÃ¥ hotellet vor vi hyggede os et par timer i hotellets Lounge.

Ved 18-tiden gik det sÃ¥ ellers i bil mod Parken … hvor vi bruge en del tid pÃ¥ at finde en parkeringsplads 🙁 det lykkedes dog langt om længe. Inden vi gik ind i selve Parken spiste vi lidt pølser/is ved en pølsevogn.

Det var ogsÃ¥ Kim der havde sørget for billetter (Elin og jeg sad begge i møde da billetsalget blev frigivet) og vi havde fÃ¥et fine siddepladser med godt udsyn. Ved ca. 21-tiden gik “Bossen” og co. pÃ¥ scenen og sÃ¥ var showet ellers i gang, med fuld fart pÃ¥ lige fra starten, lyden var desværre ikke i top, men det var showet til gengæld. Det er vildt at tænke sig at en mand pÃ¥ 58 Ã¥r kan give den sÃ¥ meget gas i omkring 3 timer uden pause, vi andre har noget at leve op til 😉 Jeg har efterhÃ¥nden været til en del Springsteen koncerter og den her er klart en af de bedste ,bortset fra lyden! Der er altid delte meningen og sÃ¥danne koncertoplevelser, men jeg fandt denne anmeldelse pÃ¥ www.brucespringsteen.net og anmelderens oplevelse passer faktisk ret godt sammen med min, sÃ¥ jeg har valgt at gengive den her:

COPENHAGEN, DENMARK

The Freewheelin’ Bruce Springsteen

By Joshua Rose

I’d already seen a number of Magic shows in North America; now visiting Europe for another handful of concerts, what strikes me as amazing is how much the current set lists are being “opened up.” What started as a fairly tightly constructed setlist at the start of the Magic tour has turned freewheeling. While Bruce has been playing requests more and more frequently as the tour goes on by, what began as an occasional reaction to a sign in the pit has now turned into an organized effort in sign collection. Early in the Copenhagen show he literally walked around and collected signs, liking some, dismissing others as “too difficult.” He must’ve grabbed ten or so. Comparing those signs to what was on the original handwritten setlist for the night, it seems as though he picked up a few signs for songs that were already on the list, and added a few that weren’t. Signs aside, the night was filled with terrific audibles, with “I’m on Fire” into “Downbound Train being a great example. If my math is correct, there were eight songs played in Copenhagen which weren’t on the original setlist for the show.

The freewheeling nature of the show seems to be driven by a desire to just let it rip and have fun. Bruce was clearly relaxed and enjoying himself in Copenhagen, and it showed. During “Spirit” he interacted with the audience on several occasions, with more audience “groping and grabbing” than I have seen to date. Also during that song he grabbed a “five pack” of Carlsberg beer (which is a great Danish concertgoer favorite) from someone in the pit, brought it up on stage and then later started passing individual beers around to others in the pit. Before handing out the last one, he took a sip then gave it to some lucky fan. Needless to say it helped pump the energy level up to a new level. He really did a great job of reading the audience and giving them what they wanted.

We were just astounded as the band seemed to kick into one old song after another, and it was one of those shows where you literally had no idea what was coming next. Some of the highlights for me included “Working on the Highway” and a totally hot “Ramrod,” where the band just let loose. But with a setlist like this, it’s too hard to pick favorites. I’ve learned to just sit back and enjoy it all.

Only one small negative was the sound: it seemed quite muffled at first and wasn’t crystal clear as so many of the outdoor shows can be. Parken is an intimate venue, as stadiums go, but it is somewhat enclosed, which led to sound bouncing around inside quite a bit. That said, it seemed to improve as the show went on and by the encore was virtually perfect.

Da vi efter koncerten kom tilbage på hotellet var Elin og jeg godt trætte så vi gik på hovedet i seng og sov nonstop til kl. 8.30 næste morgen. Vi mødtes med Kim (Lisa og Jan kørte hjem efter koncerten og Anne var taget på arbejde) ved 9-tiden for at få noget morgenmad. Efter morgenmaden stod den ellers på shopping i city. Livgarden havde jubilæumsoptog på gågaden denne dag så der var også andet at se på end butikken. Vi afsluttede vores shopping med en god frokost på café Norden.

Ved 14-tiden startede vi sÃ¥ turen mod Jylland … den blev desværre lang 🙁 En lastbil med grise var kørt galt pÃ¥ Sprogø og Storebæltsbroen var derfor spærret! Vi sad derfor ca. 4 timer i kø pÃ¥ motorvejen (se billeder forneden), heldigvis havde vi lige købt sodavand m.m. pÃ¥ en tank, sÃ¥ satte Bruce Springsteen pÃ¥ CD’en og sang og skrÃ¥lede med pÃ¥ diverse hits!

Elin og jeg var hjemme i Mommark ved 00.30-tiden og var igen godt trætte! Det bliver helt sikkert en koncert/tur vi kan huske i lang, lang tid 🙂

Så høres der Springsteen Kø på motervejen
