    I'm always early at shows, I like to be as much up to the front as possible, preferably front row :)

    Ahhh well, if you measure more or less 2,00m (like me), you'll maybe have trouble sleeping.
    I once went to a Formula 1 hotel and man, I'll never forget it.
    Tiny beds made for smaller people and a miserable bathroom with toilets that fall into pieces.
    Was quite an experience.:)

    But maybe the hotels are better over there.

    I'm 195 cm, so we'll see :D
    I'm used to smaller beds from all around travelling though, hell I can even sleep in tents at festivals :p

    I'm sure it's OK, if not, then I've tried it.


    The other option would be bunk bed at a hostel, and bringing your own sheets and stuff, so I'm hoping I've made the right choise.


    But of course, you get what you pay for ;)

    Regarding Stockholm:

    If you have facebook I'd recommend having a look here:
    http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/event.php?eid=127948212312

    Guess a lot of us going to the Stockholm show will try and meet up at Kellys before the gig.

    Let me know if you need any help, though it's been a while since I lived in Stockholm I could probably help out a bit for any specific questions ;)

    OK!
    I'm not sure what I'll do at work then, since my current assignment ends next Wednesday, but I should be able to pick you up at the central station.

    You arrive by plane at 16:45 I guess?
    Is it at Landvetter or at Göteborg City Airport?
    Then catch the bus/coach to the city.
    You can't get the ticket by cash on the bus, but you can pay by credit card if you wish, or purchase it from a machine before you get on.

    For those going to the gig in Göteborg:
    Thinking about meeting up in some bar in town before the show, though not sure where to go.

    Where there are nice beers or where they play metal?
    We can't get both...

    I'll arrive at Landvetter.
    Do you need a credit card for those machines too? For bustickets I mean?
    If so, I need to apply for a CC...

    And I say we pick a bar with good beers, you can always listen to metal, but you can't always drink good beers!!

    Well, yes.
    But I think you can get the ticket inside at a store as well, for cash, not all that sure though :erk:

    There is an option of getting them online as well, but then, of course, you need a credit card...

    Check this out:
    http://www.flygbussarna.se/Default.aspx?lang=EN


    1)
    Buy Ticket
    To or from: Göteborg Landvetter
    Line: Landvetter-Göteborg
    Push "Next" button


    Did you go back from Landvetter as well, or did you go back from City Airport?


    If going back from Landvetter

    2a)
    1 Return (150 kr)
    Type email address
    Choose payment type Visa / Mastercard / Amex / Diners
    Push "Next" button


    If going back from City

    2b)
    1 Signle (80 kr)
    Type email address
    Choose payment type Visa / Mastercard / Amex / Diners
    Push "Next" button


    Then you'll need to repeat to get a single ticket for the city coach as well.
