Dark Decadence Tour was like a dream: my favourite “sleazers” (HARDCORE SUPERSTAR), my current favourite “glammers” (CRASHDÏET) and my all-time favourite vampires (THE 69 EYES) Couldn’t miss this for ANYTHING!
Of course lots of other people felt the same way, so despite getting to the venue about an hour before the opening of the doors, I didn’t make it to the front row – hence the lack of quantity and quality of the photos. But I had to drop a line about it as it was an unforgettable night in my life.
THE 69 EYES were co-headliners with HCSS, but as the latter and CRASHDÏET are both Swedish, the gig in Stockholm (which is also CRASHDÏET‘s hometown) suffered a little change in the line-up: THE 69 EYES as opening act (half an hour), CRASHDÏET as support act (45 minutes), and HCSS as only headliners (90 minutes).
Also for being their homecountry, people wearing t-shirts of those 2 bands were countless. But as the venue was filling in, some guy shouted for Jyrki and then Jussi, meaning there were some crazy 69 EYES fans as well. I could confirm that once again right on the opening song, “Devils”, as the crowd happily sang along the chorus.
Jyrki dedicated “Perfect Skin” to all the girls there, and when he asked to see an ocean of waving hands during “Sister Of Charity”, we immediately provided him that image. Beautiful.
My favourite quote from “The Crow” movie (well, mine and millions of others’, I’m sure), “it can’t rain all the time”, left no doubt that “Brandon Lee” was about to be played. The same as “Stockholm, I know you wanna rock” was the introduction to “Lost Boys”.
To hell with the photos – I can’t remember a concert where I’ve danced so much!
