Norway, Bergen – Koengen 2010

9/10

We arrived in a sunny Bergen the day of the show. We checked in at Jacobs Apartment in the city centre. Great place. We had a apartment for 5 people for just 1850 nkr. I recommend this place, specially room 309… There were no room available in Bergen on the 11th august elsewhere. We headed downtown, had some nice fish food on the fishing harbour. Then we took a stroll to the venue, Koengen, Bergenhus festning. It looked and sounded great. There were sound tests going on, Annie Lennox.. The rest of the day we enjoyed beer and food. There were Maiden shirts everywhere.
The concert itself rocked. One of the best I`ve seen.  The sound was quite good already from the start and it was great after a few tracks. The crowd were loud and didn`t mind the rain halfway in the concert. The rain added to an fantastic atmosphare. Highlights were Brave New World, No More Lies ( this one really rules on this tour), Blood Brothers and Running Free. All tracks sounded great really. I think it was a very special concert.
