Eva Dahlgren to join Tomas Ledin on stage

Tomas Ledin will give a one hour concert in Skansen, Stockholm, next Juny 24th.

This concert will take place right after “Allsång på Skansen” show. Usually all the artists who participate in the “Allsång” show go on with the show for an hour. This time it will be only one artist who will entertain the audience. Tomas Ledin, who celebrates his 40 years as an artist, has participated in many Allsång in the past, this time the stage is his for one full hour.

But he won’t be alone. Tomas has invited a couple of Swedish artists to join him on stage on this special evening. And yes, Eva Dahlgren will be one of them. Eva and Tomas toured together back in 1992 with Rocktåget and they also participated in “Så mycket bättre” last year. Other artists to join Tomas on stage are E-Type and Timbuktu (who participated in the same Så mycket bättre as Eva and Tomas), Måns Zelmerlöw and Niklas Strömstedt.

Tomas’ show will be broadcast on SVT and starts at 21:00.

More information can be found on Tomas’ website.

Rumour: Eva Dahlgren to participate in “Så mycket bättre”?

According to some Swedish newspapers, Eva Dahlgren is going to take part in the 2nd edition of TV4 programe “Så mycket bättre”.

Other artists are supposed to be Tomas Ledin, Timbuktu, Mikael Wiehe, Lena Philipsson and Laleh. This info hasn’t been confirmed by Eva’s management or TV4, so I take it as rumours so far.

The first season of “Så mycket bättre” run on TV4 last Autumn with stars such as Lasse Berghagen, Lill Babs or Thomas Di Leva. The 7 artists spent a week in a hotel in Sweden, each of the artists had a day dedicated to themselves where this artist had to organise activities for the other participating artists, and the other artists performed cover versions of the “artist-of-the-day” songs. The show consisted of 8 chapters which were aired between October and December 2010. Wikipedia has a full list of songs which were performed.

In addition, a compilation album including these cover songs was released after the season 1 was over.
