huge photo post

i had an absolutely wonderful time at the concert celebrating sweden's national day. yey for free concerts!

after buying some huge swedish flags to wave around, cassandra and i ended up front row center (hehe) despite arriving fairly close to when they were letting people in. it was really hot and sunny, but it has been every time i go see a show outdoors at the stockholm stadion, and i'd rather this than rain so... it was fine.

i was surrounded by 15-year olds, haha.. yey. but we had fun and soon enough the show was on. i was really thrilled to get to see a small performance by anneli alhanko, a gosh darnit prima ballerina asoluta i've been wanting to see since i was a kid. she was lovely! also, they had a really nice medley of various famous operas that kicked ass.

there was lots of flag waving, lots of pretty good performances by swedish artists (including my lovely håkan hellström, aww!), and we finished everything off with everybody singing along with the swedish anthem (considering there were 20-25,000 ppl there, it was LOUD!). really fun stuff and.. did i mention free? hehe.

i'm leaving for tiny town in 7 hrs and don't have time to get picky about things, so i'm posting my entire batch of photo's i like that i took tonight. it's, like 28 pictures, mostly of artists you don't know because they're swedish but... eh, it's my diary, haha. you don't have to click, but are welcome if you feel like it, and håkan + andreas jonsson are kinda hot... :)

cin cin!!

Veronica looks like she's channeling some 80s-era Madonna. The off-the-sholder shirt, the ugly thing in her hair ...

I used to enjoy Louise Hoffsten way back when. he's been around for longer than I care to remember. And yay for Anneli Alhanko!

great pictures, i love the ones of håkan - he's cuuute :D andreas johnson, hah, didn't he participate in the eurovision song contest or something, recently? i remember seeing him at roskilde 2000. it was a good gig, actually. more trivia: this year's winner of norwegian idol, aleksander denstad with, sang "glorious" as one of his Very Impressive Performances. "checking me ooout, making me glooooriouuuuus" - i love that song.

Always fun to see your photos. Can't understand the lady with the mic in the last shot though. Jeans, high black boots, a fur jacket and lots of make-up? Must've been trying to beat that eighties chick. :)
