Swedish ‘Expressen’ features Bono signing autographs in Gothenburg shortly after the band’s arrival at their hotel in the city centre. The newspaper had put up a banner that said ‘Welcome to Gothenburg U2’. Bono, evidently fatigued after the show in Oslo, looked a little tired but he said ‘hey, that’s nice’ when confronted with the banner and he was the only one to stop for autographs.
The paper also claims the band will be signing ‘specially designed’ mp3-players (that would be the U2 iPod then?) in a shop in Avenyn during their Gothenburg stay. The Expressen has provided a handy infographic about the concert.
Goteborgs-Posten reports that ‘U2 are in town.’ After landing at Landvetter airport at 00:50, U2 had a police escort (a caravan of 15 cars, although another papers says it was 3 mini vans) to the hotel, then went straight to a local pub called ‘the Dubliners’.
Aftonbladet travelled to Norway to preview the concert there and come to the conclusion that U2’s concerts are uplifting and on the same epic level as Bruce Springsteen and, um, Håkan Hellström. And what did they think of it song by song? Find out.
… looks like Swedish fans are planning a ‘white wave‘ during the show.
