Hat trick in Bears for Per!

STOCKHOLM – Per Gessle killed all opposition when he collected no less than three Rockbjörnar (Rock Bears) tonight at Cirkus on Djurgården in Stockholm. The Rockbjörnen is Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet’s award and it turns 25 years this year.

  Per was nominated in the best male artist, best song and best album categories. “2003 was a fantastic year and 2004 has started off really well,” Per says to Aftonbladet. When receiving the grandest award of them all – best male artist – Per says “Sweet Jesus, thank you all again! See you this summer with Gyllene Tider!”

  Over the years Roxette has received six Bears, Marie Fredriksson five, Gyllene Tider two and now Per Gessle three.

  Last year’s record of 480,000 votes was broken with some margin; 760,000 votes this year!
