Gig Highlight: Patti Smith

“Horses, horses, horses, horses, horses, horses, HORSES, HORSES… Do ya know how to ponaaaaayyyyyy?”: Patti Smith has written so many iconic musical moments into this world that it’s difficult to know where to start, be it her cannibalising of Jimi Hendrix’s Hey Joe to the ten-minute freight train that is Land (yes, that’s the ‘Horses’ song). She’s been to Sweden a lot in recent years, and she’s making the trip back again to Gröna Lund this year. Expect poetry, music, and who knows what else: it’s Patti Smith, she does what she fucking wants.
