Short report from Peter Hayman on the show in Tromso:

Jerry thrilled an enthusiastic crowd on his first visit ever to Tromso. He looked fit and well and he was dressed casually in jeans and jumper. Despite the cold, which none of the musicians including Jerry would have enjoyed, the Killer played a long and thrilling rendition of ´Rockin´My Life Away´ which was probably the highlight of the show. Other songs included Down the Line, You Win Again, Before the Night is Over, Headstone, You Belong to Me, Sweet Little Sixteen (very strong version), Great Balls of Fire and Whole Lotta Shakin´.

Linda Gail and Annie played a short and rocking opening set which put the crowd in a rock and roll mood and ready for the Killer.

…´Killers Strings´: Buck, Kenny & Ray…

Short note by Folke Myrvang:

The killer did a short but rockin´set last night. He was asked to cut his show so the other acts would have time to perform and responded by thundering through his two biggest hits. Jerry looked and sounded great and its obvious that Judith is taking good care of him and that he enjoys life and being back on stage.

Rock on Killer!
