Princess Victoria celebrated her birthday with three Per-penned songs

Written by roxeteer on July 15, 2003 to .

BORGHOLM - Per Gessle was one of the performers invited to the “Grattis Victoria” concert on the Swedish island Öland yesterday evening. The concert was organized to celebrate Crown Princess Victoria’s 26th birthday.

  Per performed two songs from his new album: “Födelsedag” and “Här kommer alla känslorna (på en och samma gång).” Especially the first song suited the situation perfectly, as its title means “Birthday” in English. Princess Victoria and her father, King Carl XVI Gustav, seemingly enjoyed the show immensely.

  Per and his band Mazarinerna apparently performed the songs “playback”, so that the music came from a tape, but Per sang live.

  Surprisingly, Per wasn’t the only one performing songs written by him. Peter Jöback performed “Varmt igen”, a song which Jöback released on his solo album this past winter and which is also included on Per’s new album.


I want to hire Mazarinerna to play at my birthday.

hehe...they WILL play to my party...just got to share them with a thousand other fans *mpf*

They will play on my birthday, too. Unfortunately from tape. :(

Per sing on my birthday? It’s near yours on January 15th. Let’s make a big party here in Brazil??? :D

Fernanda - Brazil

I wasn’t invited.... this is unfair. Bummer.
