According to the latest article published on Hallandposten.se, over 16,000 tickets were sold for the Roxette concert in Halmstad and the organizers in the official application documents say about max. 22,000 fans that can be expected on the concert day. The police sources claim that the marketplace can take even more people – close to 30,000 spectators.
Ingmar Nilja, the local police chef, met with the organizers from Nöjet AB two times just to discuss all the issues about the Roxette gig. It was decided that the organizers will be responsible for people’s safety in the concert area and because of that Swedish policemen will not get paid for their help.
