The audience was in a very good mood, it felt like everybody had waited for this moment a very long time. The concert hall was completely packed with people, young people.

Sound: The energy that comes from the stage is amazing, Jack is just an amazing showman, running around, hanging around Meg and rocking out. His voice is so fitting for this kind of music, it has that raw sound that just fits like a glove. The instruments used where his standard red/white electric guitar, slide guitar, marimba and the strange looking antique acoustic. Meg had her standard drum-set and two tympani's. The concert itself was really loud, and sounded very good. I really love how they brought out thoose low end frequencies from Megs drumset. Jack had his high-gain, almost Metal-"ish" tone. // 9

Perfomance: The audience was in a very good mood, it felt like everybody had waited for this moment a very long time. The concert hall was completely packed with people, young people. Luckely it was atleast some sort of ventilation, but it was still pretty hot. When they entered the stage, the audience went crazy and raised hands to either clap or show horns. There were never a quiet moment, the energy from stage lasted through the whole concert. The stage decorations were very good looking, with mixed red and white. The back screen was decorated with palm trees in white, which was lit up very nice. The songs were faded together so it's quite hard to include a set list. The only thing I was a little dissapointed at was that they didn't play "Fell In Love With A Girl" which is one of my favorite songs. // 8

Overall Impression: Globen Anexxet, Stockholm, Sweden on October 27th 2005. As a whole, the concert was brilliant, with amazing energy and dedication from the stage. The openers for the concert was "The Greenhornes" who did a pretty good job, but got a little bit repetetive after a few songs. They played a good mix of old and new songs. What I love about the show is the design of the stage and the amazing energy. This concert had no seats so the price was the same for everybody, the tickets was at 330SEK, which I find very cheap for this kind of show. I would see them again whatever the price would be. It's amazing how a duo like this can be this good. // 8
