I went and saw the cats in both Helsinki and Sweden last week, and I must say that the show in Sweden was a real bulletmachine/rockin the joint/ fantastic ultimate great show altough it was a much more smaller place than the Ice Hall in Helsinki but so much more energy, awsome!. And the cats seemed to have a real great time too.
Anyone else who where in Sweden and saw the rockabilly kings? king Smile

Rockabilly Rules! Cheers from Sweden // Chris Rocket

Here are some of the pics I took in Stockholm, with my shitty, old (ready for a museum) pocket camera:

That is one of the best collection of Stray Cats photos from one show I have ever seen! That photography crew should be plucked from Sweden and placed at every show. Of course, Andi and Tommy will definitely come through for us in Paris and various UK dates.

Not that I don't appreciate all photos, but the ones taken by the photography enthusiasts who know what they're doing are a special treat, and I am grateful to those of you who sacrifice the normal fan concert experience to take such terrific photos!

I'm curious. Do those of you who shoot 100, 200... 700 (!) photos at a show ever wish you could have just sat and taken in the show like the rest of the fans? Or is marrying your love of photography with your love of the music a match made in heaven?

Love the photos! Keep 'em coming!

At every Setzer gig I've been to (be it Stray Cats or Brian solo), taking photos has NOT been allowed. The last time Setzer played in Oslo, a friend of mine (pro photographer) nearly got his equipment confiscated by security. So this time, since Tommy stated that the Cats were fine with taking photos, I decided not to miss the opportunity. I'm just a fan who happened to remember to bring a camera, so these aren't nearly as good as Mats' shots. But still, I hope you enjoy them:










Drinking German beer in Sweden? (well, Swedish beer ain't that good anyway tongue )

Professional or not, those are pretty cool as well. Sometimes the fans who snap 9-10 photos, just waiting for their moment while trying not to be a nuisance to other fans, get some great photos as well.

That "not-being-a-nuisance" part is pretty important. If you don't have front row seats, or the ability to move about and stay out of people's way, overzealous shutterbugs can be a big distraction at a show. That is one of the reasons many venues don't allow cameras inside. One thing that has amazed me the couple of times I've observed Tommy's mad photography skillz is how he can move virtually anywhere in the venue to get photos without ever bothering the fans. And he takes hundreds of shots at some shows. It's as if he's a photo ninja!

Great Admirer of Tommy-san,

Well, I post some pix as well. I stood far away and had to zoom a bit. Not the best quality, but I like them anyway.

The last picture shows Brian holding a "miniature Lee Rocker" I think he got from the audience. What great show this was!
