Helsinki


If it was fantastic in Globen, it was at least just as good in Finland. This time we got all our suitcases, so everyone was happy and could wear their own clothes and shoes! And it felt like we owned the stage. In Globen it was our first time on the square stage with long catwalks in each direction, but in Helsinki we knew the stage well and felt totally home on it. It was again such a great experience to stand in front of 15000 people and play our music. I think we could get used to this!

Celine seemed happy to have us there, and when we got to the hotel there was a HUGE bouquet waiting for us expressing her and her husband's appreciation.

Yesterday we spent the day in Helsinki... a rainy Helsinki. Not the most exiting thing we have done. It was not like we could walk around and get to know the city, so we went to the movies.

10 minutes after the show

We have just played a fantastic gig on the beautiful stage in the middle of the arena. The audience was great and supportive, and we loved it! We want to do it again. Lucky we are playing with Celine Dion one more time on Monday in Helsinki!


Now that we have done our part we are just going to enjoy the show and the great catering that Celine brings on her tour.
Everyone is so nice and they take very good care of us.

What a great experience this is!!!!!!

In position




We're in Globen now! In our well-dressed dressing room getting ready for sound check.
Luck hasn't been with us today unfortunately. It started with a car break down in the middle of "Öresunds bridge", and a sound engineer missing the plane because of that.
The rest of us arrived in time at Arlanda airport, but so did NOT our luggage. Anna's suitcase, with ALL her clothes was not there, and it's still missing. Very interesting gig if it doesn't turn up!


Now sound check!

What a weekend!

After a week full of traveling, recording, playing for his majesty, and playing at the local TV station, we had a well-deserved weekend off. And we sure picked a good one to not work. The sun has been shining constantly and it has been above 30° C in the air, and we haven’t seen a glimpse of each other ☺ The word Calaisa hasn’t been mentioned once, we’ve just been hanging out with our friends and family, enjoying life and the weather.
The weekend also contained this year’s two first little swims in the ocean. It was lovely and refreshing.


Tomorrow we're back in the studio again, only a little more rested, tanned and pepped ☺
