Per sick – today’s live show jeopardized

STOCKHOLM – Per has caught a bad case of bronchitis, due to the cold and wet midsummer in Halmstad, according to a report published in Aftonbladet today.

  “I sound like Louis Armstrong, it’s really troublesome. If I can’t sing, what do I do?” says a worried Per, who is scheduled to perform tonight on the live TV show “Allsång på Skansen.”

  Whether he will perform his two songs together with his band “Mazarinerna” or not, no one knows yet. “The doctor said that this must heal itself and that the only thing that helps is a good dose of rest,” Per tells Aftonbladet.

  The show’s producer, Meta Bergkvist, says they don’t have a contingency plan. “We’ll see tomorrow” (read: today). “If he’s not better then, we’ll have to solve it somehow,” she says.
