The Beatle's second visit to Sweden inside ten months saw them give four performances over two nights at this 8500 seat ice hockey arena, at 6:45 and 10:00 each night. On two occasions they played to less than capacity audiences. During the first show, Paul received a mild electric shock from an unearthed microphone. John, too, suffered a jolt.
