Absent FriendsThis site is dedicated to the memories of Siv Permiaho and Marco Sweers.
The show premieres at the Hartwall Arena in Helsinki, Finland on 28 and 29 January 2022. The tour then kicks off in Sweden on 4 February 2022 in Karlstad. The Swedish dates and venues are shown in the graphic above.
You may remember that Peter and Ola co-hosted one of the heats of Melodifestivalen back in 2015 and performed the song “Sing Me Out” together. “Sing Me Out” was also released via Spotify and other digital platforms.
Ola has previous form with Jesus Christ Superstar. In 2008, he translated the show into Swedish for a special performance in Malmö. A cast recording album was released in 2009. There have been several arena tours since then. In these productions, Ola has played Jesus so this time will be different for him.
Peter has also played Jesus in 1998 in a concert version of Jesus Christ Superstar in Stockholm and Gothenburg back in 1998.
Peter has said that this production will be in English.
Tickets are available from Ticketmaster.

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’s autobiography will be published on 10 November 2021, titled “Att bära sig själv”, which roughly translates to “Carrying Himself”.
The press release says that Peter will tell his whole story about he became one of Sweden’s greatest musical artists, despite the emotional baggage of family secrets, feeling of guilt and shame and his journey to insight and self-discovery. The book will also be a declaration of Peter’s love for a life of music.
As you can probably tell, the book will be in Swedish. Time to dust off my Swedish dictionary and brush up my rusty Swedish.
Peter will be releasing new music on 13 August 2021. “Better Man” is a new single that will be out on the usual digital platforms.
The song has been inspired by the #metoo and Black Lives Matter movements and is about people becoming the best versions of themselves.
If you pre-save the song then you could be in with a chance to win tickets to Peter’s online concert on 29 August 2021. Visit https://fpt.fm/app/29995/better-man for more information.
Peter will be appearing live online in concert from his own garden at 7pm on Sunday 29 August 2021, Swedish time. That will be 3am on Monday morning in Sydney, Australia!
With all the current restrictions around travelling, this will be the perfect way to see Peter live in concert in a very special setting.
More dates have been announced to see Peter this summer. See the image above for details.

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.
Things have been fairly quiet over the past 18 months – until last week that is.
Just over week ago, Peter reached a milestone by turning 50 and since then the news has been rolling in.
Possibly the most exciting is that new music is on its way. Peter has been teasing recording sessions in the studio on his Instagram account for some time now. With his 50th birthday, it was announced that Peter has signed with Warner Music Sweden and that newly written music will be released at the end of summer. I am taking this to mean either September or October, traditionally a popular time to release albums.
I seem to recall Peter mentioning that he has been working with his songwriting team behind the amazing Humanology album, which is good news. That would be Kathryn Williams and Tobias Fröberg.
Peter is currently on Gotland filming for the next season of the Swedish TV show Så mycket bättre (literal translation = So much better). If you haven’t heard of the show, it gets together a diverse group of Swedish music artists and they all perform versions of each other’s songs. It is very popular and has been around for over 10 years. The songs are released via digital platforms and are also collected together on a CD release. A bonus (for me anyway) is that one of my favourite singers from the 70s, Harpo is also appearing. Outside of Sweden. he was mainly known for the worldwide hit Moviestar but within Sweden he has a full catalogue of music stretching over several decades.
Peter also mentioned in passing that he has been filming a new movie in Malmö. No other details as yet.
Exciting times ahead.
