Marie Fredriksson to perform live in Stockholm

Written by roxeteer on February 27, 2009 to and .

Marie Fredriksson Online reports that Marie will perform live on stage in Café Opera, Stockholm in an event called "Still rocking in the free world."

The event is organized by Lasse Lindbom who is remembered as the producer of Marie's early solo albums. According to the event information in Facebook, the event, taking place on March 12, is dedicated especially to the people "who used Café Opera as their living room in the 80s." The tickets (450 SEK) are only available via Swedish bank giro, so it may be difficult to obtain tickets abroad.

Other artists in the event will be Mats Ronander, Anne-Lie Rydé, Niklas Strömstedt and Lasse Lindbom. They are performing together with the musicians Pelle Alsing, Mats "Gaffa" Karlsson, Patrik Lundström, Hasse Olsson and Mikael Bolyos.

Lasse Lindbom told Marie Fredriksson Online that Marie will perform 4-5 songs, one of them being "Jealous guy" by John Lennon.

During the gala, different celebrities are awarded with prizes such as "Homo of the year", "Hetero of the year", "Artist of the year" to name a few, combined with music entertainment.

This year Marie Fredriksson joined the gala and performed a beautiful version of "Tro", together with her husband Mikael Bolyos, who played the piano. According to Aftonbladet, Marie received standing ovations and had a big smile on her face throughout the performance.

This time around the Gaygala was not broadcast on TV, but some fans have managed to find short snippets of the performance on and on Aftonbladet.

Written by tevensso on January 14, 2009 to .

The Daily Roxette has gotten reports that the international version of Arn - Tempelriddaren (Arn - The Knight Templar) contains "Där du andas" by Marie Fredriksson - in English! "Where Your Love Lives" is its English title. It is available on the compilation album "Mix Megapol 1."

The international version of the two movies Arn - Tempelriddaren and Arn - Riket vid vägens slut is a combined version of the two, much shorter - less than half actually - and more concise. There will also be a longer version on TV4 sometime during 2009.

Marie Fredriksson: “It’s great being on stage again”

Written by Jud on December 2, 2008 to and .

STOCKHOLM - The Daily Roxette had a chance for a brief interview with Marie Fredriksson.

When The Daily Roxette asks Marie how she is feeling, Marie responds "I feel great, thanks!" Marie is currently on a break from the "Stjärnklart" tour, after playing five nights in Stockholm, she will play in Malmö tomorrow and until Friday, and in Gothenburg next week. Marie explains how everything started with this show; "They asked me, I thought about it and said yes. It's been a challenge and a pleasure." And it surely seems to have been the right decision, as Marie adds, after having more than half of the tour behind her, "It's great being on stage again."

Last Saturday, day of one of the shows in Stockholm, was a special day for many. Fans travelled from far outside of Sweden to see Marie live and had the chance to meet Marie. Marie, how did that feel? "It was a lot of fun, especially when someone [note: Rosa Planas from Spain] gave me a really really old record of 'Strul.' They were sweet and friendly as always," says Marie to The Daily Roxette.

As you may know, Marie not only composes music, she is also an artist, and has already had three art exhibitions, the last one in Gothenburg in October, "It was great in Gothenburg, even better than Stockholm." The Daily Roxette wonders if there are any plans for another exhibition, "I paint and I write music whenever I get the feeling, so we'll see what happens first," Marie smiles.

As Marie has mentioned often in the past, she takes a step at a time and has no fixed plans for the future. When we ask about more possible shows, or a solo album or with Roxette, she again answers "We'll see, one step at a time."

EMI Argentina decides to release Marie’s compilation

Written by 7-Twenty-7 on July 14, 2008 to .

(Updated) - All of a sudden, EMI-Odeón Argentina has just decided to release the latest compilation by Marie, "Tid för tystnad." What makes this even stranger is that the company refused to release both "The Change" and "Son Of A Plumber," which were sung in English (and hence, had a wider potential market).

The CD looks exactly like the European edition, and it has an sticker in the back that reads (in Spanish): "Product to be sold exclusively in South America, except Brazil." Just for the record, this is the first Swedish album by Marie to be available out of Sweden since the Japanese edition of "I en tid som vår" in 1997.

This is the first Marie (or Per) solo album ever printed and released in Argentina. Some of their older albums used to be available at the stores, but they were imports.

Update: The album charts at #16 according to the Argentinian Chamber of Commerce.
