THERION: Tour-Report from Russia ! October 24, 2012

Really great to be in Russia ! 🙂
For some reason I´ve always been fascinated by this country with its history, culture and majestic buildings.

The first gig in Rostov was great ! We played at an old theatre.
Fans were showing up at the hotel. I told one of them that I wanted a big Russian flag to put on my wall at home.

From the beginning of the gig the audience was a bit laid-back, but the from the middle of the set and at the
end they were as enthusiastic as everywhere else in Europe or South-America.

The first thing I saw from the stage was this girl I talked to at the hotel standing there with the Russian flag !
She had bought it for me !! I was very happy about it !! I showed it to the audience to their cheering !!! 🙂
After the gig I went out to sign albums and had pictures taken with fans. They were all very nice.

Unfortunately I didn´t get to see very much of Rostov cause I slept very much (guess I needed it) and then the
time-schedule was tight as always, but we had a pleasant time there and the people who were working for us
and at the hotel were all very nice. Me and Johan shared room.
The trailer we travelled around with all over Europe was very modern and comfortable, but for some reason I
almost never got any proper sleep in it……..
so it´s good that we now come to hotels where you´re not bumping up and down all the time !
The roads in some countries were horrible !!

Now we´re on the way to Krasnodar by bus. It´s gonna be exciting to come there !!

After Krasnodar We´re going to St.Petersburg and then Moscow ! – Wow !! 🙂

We will end the tour, the last gig in Kiev, Ukraine !
That will be exciting too ! 🙂


10 År utan alkohol !

I samma stund som jag tog första steget ut från Capio Maria, Stockholm den 2:a Februari 2011 så föll den slutgiltiga poletten ner……. Det var inte en tanke, utan mer som någon slags uppenbarelse som bara ”slog till” och plötsligt så visste jag: ”Det är slut nu” – ”Jag kommer aldrig mer att dricka alkohol

8 År som ”Spik-Nykter” ! Hur blev det efteråt ?

8 År ! Tiden går fort ! Och den går ännu fortare när man trivs och har kul, säger man. Och jag har det faktiskt kul och trivsamt – även om livet förstås går lite ”upp-å-ner” ibland, eller ganska ofta. Men så är det att vara människa och leva i verkligheten. Inget konstigt med det.
