This weekend at the Royal Albert Hall in London, there will be three special performances of “Phantom of the Opera” to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the musical.
As part of these performances, there will be a special appearance at the end of the show of Peter Jöback, being introduced as the new Phantom. Also, four former Phantoms will appear.
If you can’t make the show, the event will be screened in cinemas around the world, including the US, Canada and Australia. For further information, check out the official Phantom 25 site:
Good luck Peter.

Here is a first look at the new single cover for “Jag har dig nu”. This is only a low quality version and hopefully a higher quality one will become available.
“Jag har dig nu” is written by Andreas Mattsson and is one of the three newly composed songs for the album. The song has been described as a feverish meeting between two lovers.
“Jag har dig nu”, the duet with Izabella, will be the first single from Peter’s French project, “Livet, kärleken och döden”.
The song goes to Swedish radio today and will be available to buy digitally on 7 October 2011.
You can hear a 40 second clip from the song at Peter’s official site. It is the first song on the music player.
