Gyllene Tider - Flickorna på TV2

Gyllene Tider is a Swedish pop group. The name Gyllene Tider translates as "Golden age(s)", alluding to Mott the Hoople’s song "The Golden Age of Rock 'n' Roll". Few Scandinavians would not recognize the band's most famous song "Sommartider", often played on the radio during late spring and early summer. The band is well known for its catchy choruses and light-weight lyrics about summer, teenage love and life in a small town.

In January 2013, the group announced a new album and summer tour in Sweden, both called "Dags att tänka på refrängen". The album is to be released in spring, the 19-show tour starts on July 5, 2013 in Halmstad and will end August 10 in Eskilstuna. They are supported on tour by singer Linnea Henriksson.

On the 27th of July they did perform live at Tele2 arena here in Stockholm. The first show at the brand new arena here in Stockholm. Here are some pictures from the gig.
