PER GESSLE’S OFFICIAL SONG FOR THE WC IN TABLE-TENNIS, “Name You Beautiful” is out today Friday March 23th! Halmstad native Per Gessle, with a track record of 80 million albums sold worldwide, is supporting the World Table Tennis Championship in Halmstad with a song composed especially for the event that will be seen by 350 million viewers all over the world. Over 100 nations will participate in the LIEBHERR World Team Table Tennis Championships at Halmstad Arena between April 29th and May 6th 2018. Visitors will also be able to enjoy world famous artist Per Gessle's music, as he is behind the official WTTC-song "Name You Beautiful", performed together with Helena Josefsson. – When I was asked to write the official song for the tournament I didn’t hesitate. I was really up for the challenge. I wrote it together with some other local Halmstad-musicians, namely the guys from Galavant (Sebastian Atas and Victor Sjöström). Their super talented friend Viktor Broberg also contributed. We had lots of fun, says Gessle in a statement, adding: – The song isn't really a netball, more like a killer smash in the backhand corner! Per Gessle recently announced his European tour “Per Gessle´s Roxette” that he will embark on this fall. The tour will hit seventeen cities starting October 11th in Hamburg, Germany and make its grand final November 16th at Scandinavium Arena in Gothenburg, Sweden.
