Tomas = king of the castle!
Aftonbladet/Allt om Stockholm reports that Swedish superstar and all-round musical genius of the past 40 years, Tomas Ledin, has bought a castle!
Yes, the 59 year old legendary singer/songwriter - who has been one of my most favourite Swedish musicians of all time - has bought Hesselby Slott (Hesselby Castle) in Stockholm City, together with Torbjörn Blomqvist, for the total price of 50 million kronor. Now Tomas promises to keep it going as a music venue - he'll offer guitar lessons when available, and organise outdoor concerts in the Castle Park which is estimated to hold between 6,000 and 8,000 people.
It's going to be an exciting few months ahead for Tomas: not only will he be appearing in season two of Så Mycket Bättre, but he's also performing a season at Rondo, Liseberg - kicking off on 22 September and running till December 2011. More info at www.ticnet.se.
It's a shame there's no Gothenburg trip for me this year as that would have been a good one :))
