Per “celebrates 30 years of pop music” with cover tracks set list

Folks, this is one of our infamous April Fools pranks. Every year on April 1, we're trying to come up with an incredible story that sounds too good to be true and in fact it never really is. Hope you enjoy this little joke of ours. Here's a list of almost all our pranks so far. Thanks!

(Updated) – Per revealed a big surprise today; instead of playing his own songs on the Party Crasher tour, he’s going to perform mostly cover tracks. Instead of an all-Gessle set list, Per and the band are going to perform only three Gessle-penned songs! Per sent us this message:

hola every-1! to celebrate my 30 years in pop music me and the heavy metal kids are going to play the greatest pop songs ever for you guys and gals! it’s gonna be so cool to play ‘eye of the tiger’ and other favorites on stage!!!

and hey, don’t forget to send your suggestions for songs! we still haven’t decided which three songs will be the mr gee songs we play!!!!
