Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers in Sweden

A post today from Swedish blogger Peter Hemgard: (translation by Google)

3 March 1989:
     I saw one of the best concerts I've ever experienced live.
Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers did a totally awesome gig at
Mejeriet in Lund, Sweden.
     The concert received the highest rating by Olle Berggren in the Evening Post, who wrote "Rock and Roll for guys who run the Amazon, drinking beer, playing air guitar or hockey game.
Not for posörers or Phil Collins fans."
      Among the best songs during the evening was Everything They Say is True, Half a Heart, I Want to Make You Happy, I'm Not Your Man, If We Never Meet Again and Workout.
In the audience were among others Nisse Hellberg and Sticky Bomb (Wilmer X) and Karl Kanga. Here is a live clip from Milan that same year - Half a Heart.

Thanks, Peter, for sharing your concert story and posting Audio Rumble's YouTube video!
