What a great show.

In Flames was incredible. The light show was spectacular, and pretty much blinded me - couldn't take pictures because the lights kept blaring right into my face haha.

Opeth played all their greatest 80's 90's music. It was amazing fun. Windowpane, Leper affinity, Deliverance among some of the songs.

Oddly, between sets, when Opeth was setting up stage, one of the stage hands tripped over some stage snake wires and fell head first just to the right of me between the stage and the rails set up to keep the crowd back. Huge thud shook the floor - i thought the guy broke his neck - took 15 minutes before they could move him. They had to rack him and carry him out to an ambulance. As he was passing in front of me, he raised his hand and gave the crowd the horns to let us know he was gonna be o.k. I shook the guys hand as he passed by.

Here's a pic from my vantage point ~



Trippin.

Anyways - here are some photos from front row - I managed to get up front for both bands.
I got some video, but there were crowd surfers who continually got pushed to the front over my head so I had to cut out every now and again so I didn't get my head kicked in smile.gif



Michael Akerfelt - lost 30 lbs I'm guessing. The guy's a rail now




Fredrik Akesson


Uploading vids - will link later.

Cheers!
Chris

Sounds and looks awesome, Jams!
I've seen In Flames at a festival 2 years ago and was also pretty amazed by their light show.

This last video cut short because a crowd surfer came over the top of me haha. They were surfing from the back to the guards in the front who would catch them and send them off to the sides - I figured it was time to just watch going forward cuz Opeth comes to america once in a decade lol.
