Follow this link Vipi.lv to find several photos of Marie Fredriksson and her husband Mikael Bolyos on the backstage on New Wave Festival in Jurmala, Latvia on July 28.
After Erik Linder, Sweden’s Got Talent finalist, who has recorded two covers of Marie’s songs “Tro” and “Ännu doftar kärlek” and one Per’s – “Tycker om när du tar på mej” on his debut album “Inifrån”, another artist performed interesting version of Marie’s hit single – this time 1985’s “Efter stormen”. It was the popular Swedish dansband Scotts. You can listen to theirs live version recorded by marita213 on Stora Torg in Kristianstad on June 5th.
Thanks to Evgeny and Lionel.
Updated on June 22: Two links for ÄDK and TONDTPM added.
Carrita Henningsson informs on Twitter that she saw Marie Fredriksson on the plane from Spain the other day. It means Marie was on holiday with her family in her Spanish house in Marabella. It’s very probable that New Wave Festival rehersals or recording session will start soon.
Swedish Television SVT published on its website a short report from Artist Fund Gala in Stockolm’s City Hall on June 18. You can spot Marie and Mikael arriving for this event. Watch it here.
P.S. It’s the 101st post on RoxetteBlog.com since April 29. Let’s celebrate! 😉
As we previously reported, Marie Fredriksson, her husband Mikael Bolyos and son Oscar with Pelle Alsing on drums did a suprising performance at Monrad’s, a delicacy shop in Stockholm’s Djursholm, on May 29. There are many photos from the soundcheck and the concert itself on the shop’s official website.

As we previously informed, Marie Fredriksson and Mikael Bolyos attended on a June 18 gala at Stadshuset where Crown Princess Victoria was handing out this year’s prizes from the Marianne and Sigvard Bernadotte Artist Fund.
And yes, Marie did perform in the Golden Hall, where “Fading like a flower” video was shot. It is still unknown which song she sang. Most likely it was “Tro”.

Marie Fredriksson and Mikael Bolyos attended on a June 18 gala at Stadshuset where Crown Princess Victoria was handing out this year’s prizes from the Marianne and Sigvard Bernadotte Artist Fund. Agnetha Fältskog of ABBA was also among the other guests.
It is not confirmed if Marie performed there or not.
