TV4 met Marie during the rehearsals

TV4 met Marie and the band during the rehearsals and did a very short interview with her. In the video we can most probably see the final design of the stage and the final outfits.

Ms Effe says in the interview that her head is spinning, but she’s very happy about touring in Sweden again after so many years and it’s gonna be so much fun. She takes it easy. Lovely to see her in such a good mood in the video.

You can hear Bara för en dag in the clip, so this song will surely be performed during the tour. It sounds goooood! A bit less than 5 days left!!!

Awesome Gyllene Tider site on

An incredibly awesome Gyllene Tider site is now created on under ”Nöje & Kultur” menu. How cool is that! You can find there EVERYTHING about Gyllene Tider. From old articles via the flow of their social media sites to Hallandsposten’s visit in their rehearsal studio last Thursday. There is only one single problem: you can get access to anything only if you are a subscriber. Without a subscription you can check the main menu of GT’s site, which looks just fantastic. It’s a great idea from Hallandsposten. Now their number of subscribers will most probably increase like hell. 😉




NOTP Countdown: Lightshow and Rehearsals

View from the stage at Night of the PromsThe Dutch NOTP Fanpage runs a series of articles and interviews up to the tour start next Friday. Yesterday they had an interview with Geert Vanhout, the man behind the lightshow. Some interesting excerpts:

Geert: ‘This year will be very special. The LED lights with a low resolution are used for a special light effect during the whole show; there will be less video images compared to last year but there will be more lights. On the stage itself, there will be separate light elements. Besides the artists and the orchestra, we also have to light up the dancers and the extras. All of this needs a lot of material and also a decent programming.’

Geert: ‘From Monday on the rehearsals start in the arena with the dancers, Tuesdays the extras start. On Wednesday the first rough show is done: everyone, also the artists get an explanation of what will happen; it’s a disaster for a musician or an artist not to know some fireworks will explode behind their backs! On Thursday and Friday general rehearsals are planned and Friday evening the first show.’

So fantastic, but the artists only see the design and the result of the light show from next week on. Doesn’t that create any problems?

Geert:’No, that’s not a problem. We discuss in advance with the artists, like recently with Sharon [den Adel]. But the artists know that they work with a professional organization that they can trust; the artists also know that they are part of NOTP and that the show is not build around them.
