I have Pit B.

Well, no doubt the first people are going to be lining up in the morning, but you have to keep in mind that the people with the VIP package that includes early entry are going to be let in first (an hour before others) no matter what. And they will likely snag the best (or shall we say: their preferred) spots on the front rail and the catwalk.

Myself? Don't want to kill my day lining up, I'll go in later. Not my first rodeo, my 30th winking smiley

It"s a matter of personal preference, really.

The Terry O'Neill exhibition at Fotografiska is worth seeing if you are around. Some great Stones pics, amongst many others. It's 5-10 mins walk from Slussen metro, though lots of roadworks, so look for the orange signs or ask someone for directions. There's a great interview with Terry. The first assignment in 1963 for the newspaper he worked for was to photograph the Beatles at Abbey Road. When he had finished, he told the paper 'We must do a feature on the Rolling Stones, as they are much better than the Beatles. So my first two professional jobs were the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. I started at the top and carried on from there!'

Good to know! I'll be checking it out later today grinning smiley

A lot of fans are waiting in front of the Stones hotel. What do they expect? The band leaving for soundchecks?

Are there even northern lights in Stockholm?

Yes - [en.Wikipedia.org] .

No northern lights in Stockholm, you must travel all the way up to the vicinity of the arctic circle. Only time I've seen northern lights in Stockholm is when I've been of my head on boozesmileys with beer

Well my flight from LHR-ARN scheduled for tomorrow has now been cancelled, so I am now flying on Sunday and will not land until 5:40pm, which is going to be tight!

Very dismayed to read this, Andy - what a bummer. Crossing everything hard for you to arrive at the venue in time and to see you in pit B!

Auroras do not only occur in the polar regions - there were auroras e.g. in red over Berlin (Germany) in October 2013 or in deep red over Greece & Mt. Teide on Tenerife (both November 2003) - [de.Wikipedia.org] .

I like The Ardbeg Embassy in Västerlånggatan, Old Town (Gamla Stan). They serve a lot of typical Swedish food and they got loads of great beer on tap as well as a nice selection of whiskeys.

Pop House restaurant in Djurgården, in the same building as ABBA The Museum also got great Swedish food. However they close at 6pm so good for lunch only. For dinner in that area I recommend Hasselbacken.

Have they not released the vote songs for Stockholm?

I won't be surprised if there are no vote songs any longer this tour.
Last 2 gigs neither.

Maybe an 18 song setlist again?
Or maybe they'll add Dead Flowers or Wild Horses which are both great, or worst case scenario Like a Rolling Stone....

The Stockholm show is not just for fans living in the city of Stockholm, but for all fans living in Sweden. Also many fans are coming in from Norway, Denmark and Finland.

The fans in the Nordic region are all familiar with the Northern Lights - Aurora Borealis. I live in Oslo, south part of Norway, more or less same latitude as Stockholm, and we see Northern Lights every winter. More in the north of course, and all the big city light pollution is a problem, but Northern Lights are quite natural in a Stones poster or T-shirt for the Nordic region.
