Beautiful day, the whole day. But then when we went to town things started getting overcast and very gloomy. Luckily rain waited until almost at the end of the concerts.
We saw a few songs of Happo Radio still, and then The Rasmus and Chisu.
Great performances. And guess what? I had a whole backpack full of camera gear AND hauled around my tripod and they didn’t even blink at the entrance of the concert area. The girls had to open their purses for a random search and I even asked them “should I open my pack”, but the guy said “no need, go on in”.
We didn’t get all the way to the front, but with the 70-200mm and the 1,4x teleconverter I got a long way.
Tip of the day: don’t try to do video hand-held above your head with a D800 / Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 for 3-4 minutes. Unless you didn’t go to the gym for a work-out.

And just because I thought it was a fun picture (have you noticed, that whenever you are out and about shooting pictures, there ALWAYS  at some point someone or something in the picture that you don’t want to just at the moment you press the shutter?) 😉
