    Default Gyllene Cirkelnīs concert replay 2011

    In today Dagens Nyheter http://www.dn.se/kultur-noje/nyheter...ert-1.1221370#
    Translation below (thanks Cissi)

    Swede behind unique Pink Floyd concert.

    The original Pink Floyd will play for one night at Gyllene Cirkeln in Stockholm.
    The audience will be able to listen for the first time to a uniqu recording and
    on stage are the original members – as mannequins.

    The Pink Floyd concert with the bands founder, Syd Barrett will be played on 3rd
    and 7th of May this year. It's an almost 50 minute long, previously unaired
    recording from September 1967 that now, for the first time will be played in
    front of an audience where it was recorded 43 years ago.

    Last summer a new edition of Syd Barrett's (1946-2006) music was released as a
    box set ”Crazy Diamond”. Still missing was live recordings of the early
    psychedelic Pink Floyd, when Barrett was still the front man. Drugs and a
    fragile mind made Barrett loose control of himself and the group. He was
    replaced that same year by David Gilmour.


    Gilmour has in interview said that they have been searching for live recordings
    with the early Pink Floyd, but found nothing but snippets. Few Pink Floyd fans
    has been able to hear what the band sounded like with Barrett. But here in
    Sweden there is a recording from the Pink Floyd gig at Gyllene Cirkeln. The
    concert date was the day before the debut album ”Piper at the gates of dawn”
    was
    released in the US.

    It was a famous Swedish sound engineer that recorded Pink Floyd on his Revox
    recorder. He wants to remain anonymous for the time being to avoid being
    contacted by the groups many fans and others who wants to buy the unique
    recording.

    ”It's a lucky coincidence that the Gyllene Cirkelns new owners 2 Grabbar &
    Kök
    has chosen to recreate the original interior decorations of the restaurant from
    the 60's. We are trying to recreate everything as it was that night when Pink
    Floyd played. I've managed to get mannequins that we are going to dress with
    exact copies of the outfits that the band wore and the mannequins are being
    sculpted by students at Konstfack (Fine Arts School) so that they will look like
    the band members.”

    If possible, the opening acts that played on Cirkeln on September 10th 1967,
    Sleepstones with Janne Schaffer and Ted Åström, and Bamboo with Michael
    Rickfors
    will also play at the event.


    The two concert dates at Gyllene Cirkeln are before and after former Pink Floyd
    member Roger Waters gig at The Globe on May 4th and 5th. Waters will most
    probably attend the event at Cirkeln on May 3rd.

    Very nice news

    I just hope that they will sell tickets for this event, not just for VIP's.
    It would be very nice to attend, the night before The Wall in The Globe

    Well we already had audience recordings of TV and radio broadcasts, so that would be nice.
    I think I even know some audience recordings of audience recordings ;-)

    But indeed good news.

    I wonder if R.Waters has anything to comment about this replay. Anyway, Iīd say big thanks to A. Lind that this tape will finally be played to an audience. Maybe even published (wink wink) ?

    Now the question is do I have to read Dagens Nyheter with my breakfast tea for now on...
