  • Simply outstanding !
    Can’t wait for part 2, next week.

    Captured it from SVT web stream on my HD , so as to watch it over and over while offline.

    Wish for a proper DVD release from BAO / SVT, though !

  • Wonderful as usual! The only thing is the actual concert is four hours including a break and the TV broadcast is only 2 hours so this means hurry up and get ticket for the only concert in Uppsala 25 August this summer!

  • I love the whole programme, but particularly ‘Beatrice’, which I have never heard before. Does anyone know whether it is a new song, or from Benny and Bjorn’s back catalogue?

  • Beatrice was written for Kalle Moraeus by Benny and Björn in 1991, for the album called “Kalle Moraeus”.

  • It is quite an old song. Written quite a few years ago included in one of Kalle Moraeus albums I think. A beautiful song with a beautiful arrangement live!

    You can find it on youtube:

  • Can you please provide the link to the broadcast?

  • Hello!

    Does anywhere exists video of this great TV special which has the translation?

    I dont understand the Swedish, so it will be nice if someone has the translated special or if someone can make translation of interviews and spoken parts in this TV special here?

    Thank you!

  • Does anyone know the exact date each of the 2 concerts were performed, not broadcast? I’ve made a dvd of both and want to put the correct date of each concert. Tack!!!

    Could somebody please also upload part two of the concert and put a link to it as I know many of you have recorded both parts!

    The songs are found individually like this one:

    Anybody? Much appreciated!
