Warsaw gig

What a night! Thanks a million to all of you who showed up and joined us for this most memorable evening. It turned out to be an amazing gig! We certainly had a blast on stage and I could tell from all the noise that the crowd wasn't too unhappy either... I have to come back to Poland before long... Love it here!!!

Cheers, P.

PS. Movies and photos to follow, as usual!


News from Per on

"Day off in Warsaw. Great town, spring is here, everyone's got a smile on their face... Had a great dinner with BoJo, Clair & Pelle-King-of-Sao-Paulo-Alsing. Nice hotel, however the gym is too small but got friendly staff, Michael Bolton is in the guest book. Life is worth living!

Yours truly, Mr Gee"

Marie's family secret gig

Marie Fredriksson did a secret gig with some of the 80's greatest artists. The old Roxette-star was overshadowed only by another artist - son Oscar. "Good to renew her security", says Mr. Lasse Lindbom. The nostalgic factor was high to the roof, as some of the 80-century big stars took the stage at Café Opera in Stockholm. Marie Fredriksson, Annelie Ryde, Lasse Lindbom, Niklas Strömstedt and Mats Ronander played cover after cover, and mixed with anecdotes from the happy 80's. "Annelie Ryde told me about the time when she and Marie Fredriksson did "Badrocks" tour together in 1982. Then there was a spirit, makeup and hydrogen peroxide, that were life. Now is the spirit, makeup and incontinence protection." The event "Still Rocking in the free world" was arranged by Lasse Lindbom who produced Marie Fredriksson's early solo albums - and it was also Marie Fredriksson that the audiences came to see. Marie was also playing at the gay gala a few weeks earlier when she invited the audience to hear three solos, one of which it was "Ännu doftar kärlek". Marie thanked the audience several times and looked proudly out to the evening's youngest guest present. "Now we get to meet a guy who is absolutely fantastic", said Lasse Lindbom and called 12-year-old Oscar on stage. Oscar Bolyos is Marie's Fredriksson and Mikael Bolyos son - and also because Michael Bolyos was on the gig, it was clearly a family party at The Café. Oscar Bolyos sang Lenny Kravitz - "Stand by my woman" and was called on the stage for “en encore”. Source:

Marie Fredriksson performed in Café Opera

As announced earlier this month, Marie Fredriksson performed in Café Opera, Stockholm, in an event called "Still rocking in the free world". Together with Lasse Lindbom, Niklas Strömstedt, Mats Ronander, Annelie Rydé, husband Mikael Bolyos and son Oscar Bolyos, she remembered those great times in the '80s on Café Opera's stage. Marie covered Aretha Franklin's "I Never Loved A Man", "El Paso" and sang her own hit "Ännu doftar kärlek". The big surprise of the evening was however Marie's 12 year old son Oscar Bolyos, who performed Lenny Kravitz's "Stand By My Woman" and the Rolling Stones's "Jumpin' Jack Flash". Videos and photos of the event can be found on Expressen, Aftonbladet and Hotgossip. Source : DailyRoxette

Per at Babben & Co and some updates on the tour

Per performed on the Swedish show called "Babben & Co" on SVT1, March 21. You can watch it here: And two photos from behind the scene:
About the upcoming tour, there are two updates:
  • The Party Crasher concert in Copenhagen has been moved from Vega to Pumpehuset. The London show from March 17 has been moved to O2 Islington Academy (formally the Carling Academy). Per comments: These venues were changed because I prefer to play smaller venues (500-800 ppl) on this tour of mine. That has been my intention since day 1. Shepherd's Bush holds 2300 (way too big for someone like me!) and "large" Vega takes about 1300 incl the balconies. "Small" Vega wasn't available so we set our eyes on Pumpehuset. Now i'm happy! P.

Marie again on stage!

Last night, Marie Fredriksson performed at QX Gaygala, which took place at Cirkus in Stockholm. She performed "Tro" - together with her husband Mikael Bolyos who played the piano. After her great success with the Stjärnklart tour she once more got standing ovations, people even stood up while she still was performing.
