At The Gates – Live at Katalin, Uppsala 2/12-2021

7/10

Thursday night in Uppsala. The Godfathers of the Gothenburg Sound are on a Swedish tour and stop by Sweden’s 4th biggest town.

I wasn´t really up to it I must admit and after a very…VERY different support act (musically) who sounded more like some sort of a stretched soundtrack (Exorcist GBG) it was time to reevaluate my opinion. People came and showed the band their love despite the covid passes needed . There was even a few moshpits going. That sight was like seeing an old friend and a reminder of how it once was.

The setlist was short and sharp. New material was greeted just as much as the old classics, so there you go. Another old and classic band who puts out new music that is as fresh as ever.

I do wonder where the focus is though from some attendees when they in the middle of the set starts watching Premier League on their cellphones. On the other hand I saw a few sharp dressed men and I thought to myself that “wait a minute here….” but to my surprise I saw them waving their arms in the air and shout along to the songs during the night. Thank you for kicking my old ass for my preconceptions.

The band were on their toes tonight. If it was the response from the audience or just the joy of being back on stage I dont know.

If you get the chance to see the band. Dont think ”that old band..”. They are just as relevant today as they were back in the day.
