Five Finger Death Punch, 17-Nov-2017 at the Globe Arena in Stockholm

Dad had gotten us tickets to the Five Finger Death Punch and In Flames joint concert at the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm. We arrived after the opening act, which was nice since we didn’t have to stand in line to get in. Well inside the Globe, we got me a nice 5FDP hoodie. I also found one of my classmates working, so we said “Hi” and had a chat.

The 5FDP concert cannot have left anyone disappointed. Marvelous show by a marvelous band. They invited a guy having his birthday party that night to come up on stage. He looked slightly shocked while standing on stage while the entire Globe audience sang “Burn MF” together. Fantastic.

We stayed for some of the In Flames concert too, but left early and managed to evade most of the crowds which was nice. I truly hope 5FDP comes back to Stockholm soon, a repeat experience is on the cards! 🙂

Revisiting Madeira 2017

Revisiting Madeira in 2017 was, as the previous visit, an awesome experience. We rented the same house as in 2015 so that part was very familiar. We did find some new hiking routes and had generally good weather. Madeira is truly a jewel in the Atlantic Ocean, and there’s a little bit of something for everyone. We managed a few laps in the Palheiro Village’s swimming pool too, and this time we were a bit more careful with our smartphones 🙂

Guns N’ Roses at Friends Arena, Stockholm Sweden, June 29 2017

Well, I wasn’t quite expecting this. I had a feeling it would be good, and I had a feeling it would be loud. GNR live on stage kicked some serious ass! Having been raised with GNR music around me for all of my life, I was really looking forward to this.

And they delivered. What an awesome show!

Needless to say, Dad enjoyed the concert immensely! 🙂

If you have the chance to go see them, well, go see them!
