Last night we went to Oslo to see The South, it was our first show with them after the new album, The Further Inside You Go... and we were excited. It is safe to say that they fulfilled all expectations, they are the best live band in Norway at the moment. They are playing in Bergen tomorrow and in Stavanger the 16th November (we’ll be there), run out and get tickets, folks. You will not se a better Norwegian band this year!
They played two sets with a ten minute intermission (just like Zimmy does these days) both sets were fantastic, but when the y “take off” on the longer jams in the second set, I’m in heaven. Be sure to clap them back on stage after the final song, they really gave us a treat last night, the encore started out as a fun and fairly faithful rendition of Scarlet Begonias (Grateful Dead) but then they switch gears and ends up into a rip-roaring version of Allman Brothers’ Jessica. Perfect! (the piano solo from the original was included and it was so fun and so great!)
Well, as you’ve already guessed, we had a tremendous time in Oslo and we are really looking forward to the Stavanger concert.
For Someone Else
Birds of a feather -> into Keep on Growing (Derek and The Dominos)
Can’t Find My Way Back Home
End of the day
Second set + encore:
Nothin’ but my shoes
I’ll be the one
The Further Inside You Go…
Scarlet Begonias (Grateful Dead) -> into Jessica (Allman Brothers Band)
I think this was the set-list, but I may be mistaken on the sequence or some of the songs, don’t be too mad at me 😉
