Swedish progressive rock instrumentalists GÖSTA BERLINGS SAGA
are back to action…
First off, the group is launching a special digital-only live album release entitled “Artefacts – Live” this Friday, May 15th, 2020 via InsideOutMusic.
In December 2018 GÖSTA BERLINGS SAGA played a unique concert in their hometown Stockholm. At the grandiose theatre Södra Teatern they performed their latest album “ET EX” in its entirety (and a few older tracks additionally…) in front of a sitting audience. Sweden’s biggest newspaper Dagens Nyheter gave the concert a remarkable review and a 5/5 rating. Various guests accompanied the band on stage and everything was filmed and recorded. This is the result…
