By on August 23, 2016

Under the heading Summary of 21 years as a solo artist invites Roger Karlsson on large-scale concert at the Southern Theater in Stockholm, 28 September at. 19.30. With a bunch of solo albums in the baggage, countless gigs in Sweden and Norway and at times frequently found in the media is the time to jump in a nice suit, draw the bow and splurge.

Furthermore, it becomes, especially for this particular occasion, the release of the compilation vinyl Nästan som på riktigt . A collection that covers the career of six studio albums as well as new editions and bonus tracks chronologically.

Rogers musical origins of punk can seldom be mistaken though his musical horizons widened and broadened over the years. Pop, rock, soul, visa. Yes, somewhere there he finds himself with a highly personal touch. Backed by his sexmannaband, horn section and fantastic guest artists in the form of Tomas Andersson Wij, Staffan Hellstrand, Johan Johansson, Magnus Johansson and mother Birgith Karlsson are all prerequisites for an eventful and memorable September night.

The idea for this event is originally from concerts like Roger did in Huddinge People’s House in 2013 and 2014. Both concerts became both sold out successes and would have continued as an annual event but suddenly stopped when the People’s House business suddenly closed down.

The now Huddinge and former Botkyrkabon Roger Karlsson has his musical roots in the early punk wave and has played in the cult status Inferno and Tuk tuk rally.

Last fall, he released his sixth album Kysser Sörmlands jord. The album got a huge media attention and was the culmination of a long career as a musician. This writes Stefan Nilsson from rockbladet.se, “This album will light up the Swedish autumn and winter. Buy the disc. Go to concerts. The question is not who Roger Karlsson is (he’s a damn good rock poet). The question is: where the hell has he been? “.
