Alice Cooper live at Liseberg, Gothenburg 120808

Before the consert in Gothenburg I was slightly discontented with the band playing the same set list as last year but removing old ''Clones'' which was appreciated last year. A good thing though was that they instead played ''Caffeine'' (from the latest album ''Welcome 2 my Nightmare'').

When the gig started my discontent was blown away though. Alice and the band (Ryan Roxie, Orianthi, Chuck Garric, Tommy Henriksen, Jonathan Mover) seemed so tagged and having so fun that it all made us extra happy as well. The set was really well done and with several smiles glittering now and then among the musicians throughout the gig and Orianthi and Ryan did a little back-to-back dance while playing during a part of ''Billion Dollar Baby''. Part of it was the audience, there were a lot of fans surrounding me and behaving civilized although being submerged into the music and the show.

When the ending came with the balloons, serpentines, ''School's Out'' mixed with ''Another Brick in the Wall'' and Elected it felt like there had never been so much confetti, serpentines and paper feathers ever at a Cooper consert. Alice always tell the press that ''he's in the best shape ever'' but this time it felt like it. It was a very happy ferret leaving Liseberg's main stage that night.
