Mariefredriksson.net had a chance for a brief interview with Marie Fredriksson.
When we ask Marie how she is feeling, Marie responds “I feel great, thanks!” Marie is currently on a break from the “Stjärnklart” tour, after playing five nights in Stockholm, she will play in Malmö tomorrow and until Friday, and in Gothenburg next week. Marie explains how everything started with this show; “They asked me, I thought about it and said yes. It’s been a challenge and a pleasure.” And it surely seems to have been the right decision, as Marie adds, after having more than half of the tour behind her, “It’s great being on stage again.”
Last Saturday, day of one of the shows in Stockholm, was a special day for many. Fans travelled from far outside of Sweden to see Marie live and had the chance to meet Marie. Marie, how did that feel? “It was a lot of fun, especially when someone [note: Rosa Planas from Spain] gave me a really really old record of ‘Strul.’ They were sweet and friendly as always,” says Marie to Mariefredriksson.net
As you may know, Marie not only composes music, she is also an artist, and has already had three art exhibitions, the last one in Gothenburg in October, “It was great in Gothenburg, even better than Stockholm.” We wonder if there are any plans for another exhibition, “I paint and I write music whenever I get the feeling, so we’ll see what happens first,” Marie smiles.
As Marie has mentioned often in the past, she takes a step at a time and has no fixed plans for the future. When we ask about more possible shows, or a solo album or with Roxette, she again answers “We’ll see, one step at a time.”
