Official Homepage

SUNDAY July 22, 2001


Time: 2.30-3.16 p.m.
Mark screams too much, otherwise it could have been great.
They ended with a medley while Mark was running around in the audience: 
Live Wire/War Pigs/Paranoid/(a couple of seconds of) Snakeskin Cowboys

Rating: 3

After Slaughter I went to a tent and heard a little by a coverband called Glitch.
They were OK.

Uriah Heep (2)

Time: 4.16-5.27 p.m.
Started with too many mediocre songs but after that they really was quite good.
They ended with Gypsy (that was very 'eavy), Look At Yourself (boring solo by Box), July Morning.
Encore was Easy Livin' of course.
The vocalist was doing a good job.

Rating: 3+

Blue Öyster Cult (2)

Time: 6.47-7.36 p.m.
Quite boring, they played only 50 minutes, but the sound was good and some songs were good.

Rating: 3

Jethro Tull (11)

Time: 8.37-10.03 p.m.
Ian's voice held together much better than last time I saw them at Cirkus in Stockholm. 
He didn't talk as much as usual but the reason for that might have been that he didn't have Dave Pegg to pick on.
They played 3 songs from solo albums and then the ordinary same songs as always, boring.

Rating: 4

Ted Nugent (4)

Time: 11.04-12.30 a.m.
Played the same songs as in Michigan a few days earlier, but maybe not as long versions and not nearly as much talk, 
but I didn't mind as I had a long drive after the show.

Rating: 4+
