The Christmas concert 2008

One of the most rewarding tours I’ve done. We had a fantastic time on the road and were highly praised by both the press and the audience. It was great fun to once again work with the musicians that from the previous Christmas tours. Two new band members, Christer Karlsson and Sara Isaksson who made a wonderful job. Gunilla Backman guest starred and the ever so great Mauro Scocco appeared on two of the concerts and sang ”Änglar i snön” together with me, one of the four new Christmas songs we had added to the concert. The concert at Oslo Spectrum with 6500 people in the audience was probably the most awesome concert during the tour. I have a feeling that there will be more Christmas concerts in the future. Feels like a fine tradition. The new album that was released, ”En God jul och ett Gott Nytt År” was sold in amazing 150 000 copies. The remaining three new songs on the album were ”Gott Nytt År”, ”Min Bön”, duet with Sarah Dawn Finer and ”Trumslagarpojken/Fred på jord”, duet with Plura.
