Peter and Birkir on Idol – the video

Thank you, Peter. A great performance. Birkir is definitely a talent to watch.

Peter guests on Swedish Idol

Peter guested on last night’s edition of Swedish reality TV singing contest Idol.

The theme for the week was duets, which involved contestants performing duets with their idols.

Birkir Blær performed with Peter on the night, a version of “Falla fritt”, one of Peter’s songs from Så mycket bättre. It got a great reaction.

Unfortunately, Idol, like Så mycket bättre, is on TV4 and they geoblock most of their programs. Consequently, I can’t comment on the performance since I’m in Australia. If you are in Sweden, you can try the following link:

Birkir was born and bred in Iceland but is now based in Gothenburg, Sweden. His sister told him about Idol and encouraged him to audition. Birkir has released an album on Spotify. It’s worth checking out.

Broadway.com looked back on 30 years of Phantom on Broadway. The article is illustrated with a stunning photoshoot of the three stars at the Parker New York Hotel. Click here for the article, a gallery of photos and a fun video where Peter, Ali and Rodney introduce themselves.

On 24 January 2018, there was a special gala performance of the show. Our trio started the day with a ceremonial lighting of the Empire State Building. Plenty of photos were taken and some can be seen at the following links: Playbill, Theater Mania and Broadway.com.

An episode of The Broadway.com Show featured coverage of the red carpet and gala performance. The segment starts at 6:34 and Peter pops up as one of the red carpet interviews.

As part of the gala performance, Peter performed alongside the original Christine, Sarah Brightman and the cast of School of Rock in a rock version of the “Phantom of the Opera” song. Amazing version.

The actual anniversary fell on 26 January 2018. Peter and Ali appeared on the Today Show to perform “Music of the Night”. You can see that video by clicking here.

Peter continues to play in Phantom until 31 March 2018. Visit the Upcoming Events section of Peter’s official site for a schedule of his appearances and links to book tickets.
