Concerts 2011: A list

Wow - can barely believe it, it's a first for sure: a year-end list, and before 2012 to boot!

the short version

number of shows (incl. festivals): 65-ish (not sure, forget when i don't take pics.)

seen more than once 2011:
- PJ Harvey (3)
- Veronica Maggio (2)
- September (2)
- Säkert (Annika Norlin) (2)
- Motoboy (1,5)


standouts: Niki & The Dove, Prince, PJ Harvey (spec. in Paris), Paul McCartney, The Horrors, Veronica Maggio, Fallulah, Lykke Li

fave new discovery 2011: Niki & The Dove

random: prince was absolutely incredible, and i'm very much not into prince, so i was quite shocked. britney was honestly great fun, (oh alright, she didn't actually sing, haha, but i didn't exactly mind, i just wanted to dance and bounce like everyone else).

most fun was..: shocking my mother to the core by luring her up to stockholm for her birthday and then taking her to see dolly parton, who she has wanted to see live for longer than i've lived. i was such a sneak, i managed to get mom all the way to the venue and didn't let her know about the show and that we had tickets until 20 minutes before showtime. it was hilarious!

we spent almost ten minutes milling about around the venue going "mmm, must be a show of some sort on tonight.. so many people about.." and mom figuring out dolly was playing, and then her sad face when she realized it was yet another dolly-show she wouldn't be seeing, and then TA-DA, i whipped out our 5-th row tickets.. TOO FUNNY! i am EVIL.

especially considering we bought the tickets back in february and the show was in august, MUAHUAHAHUAHA!


only a few shows are picture-less (prince, for instance, as the festival was superscared we'd piss him off, so no photo's allowed).

just click on the link below to see the photo's i've snapped and put on killtoknow, if you want. if i'm not too ditzy, i'll post my own faves in a separate post.

    Wow! That's a lot of shows! I'm tired from just reading your list.... Hehe...
    I use to love going to concerts but I think I just got old, cause now the thought of going to a concert, and all the hoopla that goes with it.. (transport, getting good tickets, dealing with crazy crowds) just makes me want to stay home and watch DVDs of concerts instead...
