"On Friday, Magnus Carlsson opening their own show ”From Barbados to the Old town”. "
"Now, he reveals that there will be a continuation in the fall - at the Cirkus in Stockholm. "
"– It is an old dream come true, " he says to Nöjesbladet. "
"Magnus Carlsson, 44, summarizes his 25 years as a performer with the tour ”From Barbados to the Old town,” which opens in Alingsås on Friday of this week. "
"And premiärnerverna has just begun to haunt. "
" Right now I'm at the stage that I can't remember a shit and think: ”How will this go?”. It is a bit of a panic, he says to Nöjesbladet. "
"Close to thirty cities to be visited until the 12th of may, the pressure on the tickets has been huge and virtually all of the performances are sold out. "
"– Yes, the tickets have gone to something so crazy so I feel an incredible pressure to deliver. I want to give the audience value for money, " he says."
"– at the same time it is a project that is gigantic and prepared to the smallest detail. I and the dancers have practiced for a long time, videoproduktionerna it has jobbats with as long and the new musikbakgrunderna is completed. So now it is just to run. "
"How is it that you go on a tour without the musicians? "
"– It is a technically advanced show and to be able to sync up the sound, light and image in the best possible way, it was so. It is no wonder now-a-days that you do not have musicians. Just check for the Eurovision song contest, says Magnus and laughs. "
"– But the music is still in focus I would like to say, " he says. "
"In the performance, he summarises the whole of his long career from the first hit single for twenty-five years ago to the present day. "
"– It becomes a form of memories with the music. In a fun way. From I was little, and sang until turnéminnen with Barbados and Alcazar, on the eurovision competitions, and also Bert Karlsson pops up in a corner, " he says. "
"– at the same time, so I will open up and show some more sides of me than in the past. To get the dynamism and the weight of it all so I will also talk about some of the difficulties I have been involved with. It will be a challenge. "
"it Has been a tough work?"
" I was pretty definite on the point. Should I do anything really so I just want to not stand and sing the glittery disco for two hours. Even if it is a blast. I want to challenge myself, but also let the audience get a step closer to me than what I usually invite to. "
"In what way has the music and your old hits got new packaging? "
"– Some songs I have toured with in twenty-five years. Some have aged well. The other did not. Every single note played in the show is brand new. There are hit songs but they are reworked and revamped. Not so to the extent that they sound like weird remixes but it will feel fresh. "
"In the days, it also became clear that ”From Barbados to the Old town” is extended in the autumn. "
"– Yes, I have a fixed stage and play the show at Cirkus in Stockholm in the autumn. It is an old dream come true. I have to almost pinch myself in the arm when I think about it. Can't believe it, " he says. "
"Through the years, Magnus had eight contributions in the Eurovision song contest, he has released 24 albums and 70 singles, scored three grammis, and has been closer to forty gold - and platinaskivor that hangs flat on the wall. "
