The Show Must Go On made it's mark in Gothenburg!

The Swedes didn't really know what hit them this lovely summer night at Trädgårn'n, Gothenburg on Saturday, but they sure joined the crowd of enthusiastic fans of the Queen tribute The Show Must Go On that Saturday night. 
 
The venue was comfortably full, quickly turning into a playground for Åge Sten Nilsen and his ensemble as they took the stage with the concert version of the show. This time again complete with dancers, pyro and as a special guest appearance, guitar hero John Norum from  Sweden's rocker Europe. Norum added his string antics to the steady guitars of show veterans Jon Pettersen and Svein Dag Hauge, adding yet another dimension of sound and visuals to the show with his vintage Gibson Flying V. Six songs got fortified with his riffs and solos, from the intense version of Stone Cold Crazy to the highlight Bohemian Rhapsody. John made it clear that he'd love to participate in future shows, being a Queen fan at heart too. 

Ringmaster Åge Sten Nilsen showed himself from his best side - flying high and low all over the stage, flirting with the audience. No doubt he managed to get the Swedish audience smitten with his enthusiasm and love for the classic Queen material - the audience joined in singalong, danced and acted genuinely impressed by the show. A kind of magic, indeed! Having lived pretty close to the Swedish border all his life, we're sure the Swedes found his "Norswedish" a bit charming!

Trädgården has already invited the show back to their stage, and further shows in Sweden are being planned.
