They were incredible. However, I was right in front of them and the sound was horrible - totally echo and muddle. The performances, I could tell, were great, but the promoters committed pure blasphemy by not making sure that this rare possible last chance to see these geniuses was quandered. I would be interested to hear if anyone else had this experience. Still, of course, 3 cheers to Simon and Garfunkel and the Everly Brothers for still being there for us!!!

Great koncert, many great spine-chilling moments and brilliant arrangements of old classics.
I hope you will be back and play somewhere else than the horrible Parken, which is build for 2 things: Watching soccer and cashing in on large crowds. Impossible for music enjoyment.
Evening was saved by the songs and the great performance. Paul McCartney did an open air concert in Denmark this summer. It did rain, but the sound was a lot better - may that was an idea?!

Hi!

It was certainly a very wonderful concert. A life time experience.

Event though it can´t spoil my fantastic experience, I have to comment that it´s such a shame that the concert were held in ´Parken´, since this place has a horrible acoustic. Too much concrete. Paul Simon commented during the concert that ´I have to say, this is a strange place to listen to music´, and he´s right. I don´t know if he ment acousticly, but that makes is even more strange: the echoes are too plentyful and dominant and they muds the sound terribly.

The only way to get a reasonable sound in ´Parken´ (and to get the best sound at any concert) is to be some 20 meters away and in front of the scene, such that the direct sound is maximal powerful in relation to the echoes, and that the delay of the echo is sufficiently long for one to better ´filter´ the echoes out.

At a earlier Springsteen concert in Parken, being ´fixed´ to my seat too far back, I was totally frustrated, cause it was totally impossible to enjoy the concert. Shame on the promoters that they don´t check these things, and as a minimum at least only sell tickets for the spots where the acoustic is to some degree tollerable.

Fantastic concert!! I was eleven at the time, and already a fan... We (my family and I) hadn´t got tickets, so we sat right outside at what seemed to be a secret backstage entrance, during the whole concert. We could hear every single word, and it was simply great!!! The sound was very good, though it sounded somewhat strange when they talked. So, altogether, it was a truly great concert.
