Per Gessle at the Nordic Choice Hotels Award Dinner

Nordic Choice Hotels had their Award Dinner at Globen in Stockholm last night (21st January, 2018). It was a huge corporate event and the artists performing were chosen from the 1990s. After Dr. Alban and Snap, the main act was Per Gessle with his summer tour band. They performed Gå & fiska!, It Must Have Been Love, Joyride, The Look and Sommartider (maybe other songs too, but so far these are the songs we know about). Hopefully, it won’t be a year of corporate gigs only. 😉 At least THIS corporate show had a party hard, dancing crowd, consisting of 3000 people.

Per Gessle on Depeche Mode’s gig

According to Dagens Nyheter Per Gessle was watching Depeche Mode’s concert at Globen, Stockholm (January 31st) from the mixboard place together with Anton Corbijn. The well-known photographer was also called as the “third member of Roxette”. Did someone forget about Clarence?

Here’s what the Man said about this gig on his Twitter and Facebook:

Just back from Depeche@theGlobe. Much better than expected since I don’t know that many songs. FANTASTIC set design! And a beautiful crowd!! And Dave Gahan is great mix between Freddie Mercury and Mick Jagger…

Re. Depeche Mode: And of course, Anton Corbijn did the stage production!
