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.

Peter performs his new single “Better Man” at the 2:44 mark. If you leave the video playing, host Sanna Nielsen interviews Peter and then they join together for an audience sing-along of the Olle Adolphson song “Nu är det gott att leva”.
At the 33:51 mark there is a special medley of songs associated with Peter and performed by Martin Redhe Nord, Sanna, Pernilla Wahlgren and Petra Marklund. Peter himself joins the medley at the end singing “The Shape of You” and “Guldet blev till sand”.
Pernilla and Petra will be joining Peter as two of his guests at this weekend’s online concert.
Peter will be part of the line-up for the final episode of the popular TV program Allsång på Skansen on 17 August 2021.
Allsång is a sing-along show that will be broadcast live on SVT1 at 8pm local time. The organisers will be allowing a limited audience. Last year’s season did not have any audience due to the pandemic. Tickets will be available shortly through Ticketmaster for both the rehearsal and the actual show but are expected to sell out quickly.
Alternatively, you should be able to watch via the SVT streaming service SVT Play. The episode should be able to be seen around the world.
The second single from Peter’s forthcoming album has been released. “Shape of You” is a song written by Peter himself, Kathryn Williams, Tobias Fröberg and Tobias Karlsson. It is produced by Tobias Karlsson and mixed by Ronny Lahti. The choir on the song features Joseph Clarke, Joachim Bergström, Kathryn Williams, Jessica Fox and Mariah Hargrove.
The song is available from the usual digital platforms.
Peter premiered the song on the TV4 show Sommarkrysset on 4 August 2018.
He also performed the previous single “The Mask”.
The album is due out at the end of October 2018.
Peter appeared at “Allsång på Skansen” on 26 June 2018. He performed two songs – “Stockholm i Natt” and his new single “The Mask”. Clips of the songs can be seen on SVT’s web site until 13 September 2018.
Peter also appeared during the annual concert to celebrate Princess Victoria’s birthday on 14 July 2018. He performed “The Mask”, “Juni, Juli, Augusti” and “Come What May” (with Emmi Christensen, Peter’s co-star from the Stockholm production of “Phantom of the Opera”). Unfortunately, this concert is about to be removed from SVT’s web site.
Phantom of the Opera recently celebrated its 30th anniversary on Broadway. Peter, being the current Phantom, took part in the celebrations along with his co-stars Ali Ewoldt (Christine) and Rodney Ingram (Raoul).
On 22 January 2018, the celebration week kicked off with Peter, Ali and Rodney ringing the opening bell at the Nasdaq Stock Exchange. This was broadcast on a giant screen in Times Square.
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.
Peter has joined the ensemble for a special concert, Trees & Love, in support of the aid organisation Vi-Skogen that plants trees in east Africa, as a way of alleviating poverty.
The concert will be held on 12 September 2017 at the Göta Lejon in Stockholm and all proceeds will go to support children in east Africa.
The concert will also be screened at cinemas across Sweden.
