Rumour has it that Håkan is charging 4 million Swedish for the gig so my question is ... is he worth it?
Rather than debate it, here is my opinion ... of course He is! Anyone that seen Håkan on Skansen must realise that He is Sweden's number one, there is no question about it! Gothenburg's working class hero is somehow managing to touch the youth of Sweden in way's I don't even understand and is that not exactly what being a rock star is all about?
So lets do the maths. When Madonna played Ullevi let's say it averaged 1000 Sek a ticket and 50,000 seats (max capacity is actually 75000 for gigs) so that's 50 million Swedish per night.
It's some 8 years since I moved to Sweden and on one of the first nights in my newly bought summer house, I decided to have a crayfish party.

On top of that little treat, a spanking new pair of LINN's Aktive Akurbarik (165,000 Sek) speakers arrived. Amazing straight out of the box. Love them!
So now it's catch up. I'll announce a new weekly LINN-Lounge program starting next week as soon as possible, so please keep an eye on this page for information. That lets us catch up on a few we missed like the Rolling Stones, some new ones like REM and I'm hoping to get some guest speakers in to talk about albums they produced.
Passive Akubarik (92,500 Sek)
I installed a pair of the 'just-released' passive Akubarik on a Klimax System (DS, Kontrol, Solo*2 (latest spec on 3k array) and Twin (latest spec)) in Stockholm a little over one week ago. Really fantastic! Sounded and looks amazing. From memory I'd say that system had the edge over the…
