The concert took place in the Globe arena here i Stockholm and it was packed with people as you see. I must say our seats were quite good. I managed to take all of these pictures from where we were sitting. I went with a work friend of C and a another friend of hers.
This was a spectacular show and Dolly sure knows how to entertain and captivate the crowd. Besides her voice there is just so much more musical talent to this fantastic woman. She plays so many musical instruments. During this show she played:the piano, the guitar, the banjo, a harmonica, a flute and the saxophone!
She looks amazing at her age and she has so much energy. It is hard to believe she is a day over 50. She jokes and says it takes a lot of money to look as cheap as this and spreads out her arms.
Something that I liked was that she also told the audience about some of her childhood and about growing up in the Smokey Mountains of TN. She talked about the Grand Ole Opry. I sat there and was so happy I had been at these places she talked about. I have seen the beauty of the Smokey Mountains and I have felt the magic of the Grand Ole Opry. She talked about her parents and her 11 siblings and about singing and practicing singing with a tin can on a stick on her front porch.
I actually all of a sudden realized how lucky I have been so far in my life to have been able to see and experience so many things as I have done. More than many others do in a life time.
The crowd sitting on the front row sure were swept away. These must have been the true Dolly hard core fans.
She is so tiny but has such a big personality, heart and voice. She sure still looks great.
The concert started at 7:30 and around 9 pm there was a 20 minute break before she continued to play until 10:15 pm.
One of the last songs she played was the super famous 9 to 5. I love that song. She played a great mix of both old songs as well as brand new songs from her new CD that has just been released. I liked several of the new songs. There were songs I recognized very well just that I never realized that she had made them as they had been played by many others.
