Damn i love this band! For ever and ever! So good to see people jumping up and down in pure rock-joy even though they never heard Travis live before. They are such a gift to the world. Dont ever stop. Tusen takk!

This was my 5th Travis gig (all of them outside my own country) and as usual the band delivered it all! I was a bit disappointed that the crowd was so slow in the beginning but the band smoothed them up pretty quickly. Think so far the barrowlands 2 years ago was something extra, maybe cause it was the day before New Years Eve? The highlights this gig was so many that I don'Št know in what order, but:....
- The intro to 'Chinese Blues', absolutely powerful!
- Andy's solo in 'Something Anything' like a knife through stone...What a guitarrist!
- The intro to 'Love Will Come Through' when Fran instructed the crowd to do the 'tic tac' Also very nice intro from Clas there!
- One of the best highlights were when they mixed 'Eyes Wide Open' and 'Side' toghether with the always winning jump from Neils drums. Fucking classic!
- Andy's scaffholding climbing to 'All I Wanna Do Is Rock', where he really put an effort into making love to the scaffholding,. Haven't seen that before, haha!!
- Niels intro to the song above always make me so happy. What a drummer!
- The guitar Solo in 'Turn' and also Dougies part in it. Lovely!
- Frans crowd surf to 'Falling Down', although some dude almost stole the hat.
- The whole song 'Before You Were Young' Fran you are an amazing song writer indeed. Know how to write so powerful songs with so easy chords!
- The lightening though the whole show was amazing and i love how it's all put togehter. Well done.
- The window people in the houses around the square. Haha, nice view.
- And of course the back stage meeting with the band afterwards. I was the only fan there (lost my mate on the way) so I felt a bit awkward cause of that, but I got to see them all and have a small chat, which was cool. Thanks guys for an amazing night!! Can't wait to see your next gig! Cheers!

I was in front of the stage so It was very close to you guys
I stared Neil haha ;^), when he was preparing his drums before gig.
Moreover I could listen to Fran's beatuiful voice well, Andy's amazing guitar sounds, and Dougie always smiled to me how kind of you , what a great band !
