On February 3, 2016 has Lena Philipsson‘s new personal show, “I am no sweetheartpremiere at Cirkus in Stockholm, 30 years after the big breakthrough. This time the music is in focus and spotlight directed at Lena Philipsson at the piano, backed by one sixmanband. It will be a genuine and loving evening filled with exuberant joy, swing and confidential conversations. The show I’m not a sweetheartis simply more Lena.

Right now, Lena Philipsson is current with the single, the album and the show of the same name I’m not a sweetheart.” The single was premiered played at Allsång på Skansen last summer and got rave reviews and went directly into iTunes first. It is the first time since 1997 Lena wrote all the lyrics and music which makes the album release extra special.
It has been incredibly fun to write songs again. With own lyrics and own music it will be after all little closer and a little more personal, says Lena Philipsson.
Her new show will premiere on the new Circus Skandia Stage 3 February 2016. The audience will get to know a new side of the beloved pop star when she takes place at the piano.
Last I performed like this I was 16-17 years. I tend to always be involved in all of my shows, but now I want to unleash the musician in me. There is an important side of me and now I’m finally come to view it, says Lena Philipsson.
I am no sweetheart” is a warm and loving show that mixes new songs with classic hits and emotional parts with grand crescendos. At her help on stage, Lena Philipsson has a swinging sixmanband and the show is directed by Emma Bucht (A man named Ove”, Treater”, “The Brothers Luuk“) and Helena Dillen (Grammy, Polar Music Awards, P3 Gold) has done the scenography.
It will be worked through, glam and tidy, but also a bit close in the tone. It is a new challenge and feels like an exciting contrast to the large shows to try something more dimmed and stripped. I’m psyched to play most of my new songs along with some of my old hits. I want to strive for a wayward show filled with love and desire, says Lena Philipsson .

I am no sweetheart” will premiere at the Circus Skandia scene in Stockholm, February 3 in 2016.
