Bitter Blue at Stampen

What would Fridays be without a night out at Stampen? Bitter Blue shakes it up for the weekend. The old guys are in the house.

Delirio Mind at the Vampire Lounge

It’s Friday and time for Delirio Mind at the Vampire Lounge. It will be a cavalcade of silly hits and the 80s-with Pappa Anders behind the turntables.

Dragon Juke Joint at Mosebacke

Skåne-native Neneh Cherry and Marimba Rooney grew up in the country with cows and music. One became an international star and the other became a journalist. Now they’re spinning their favourite songs together at Mosebacke on Södermalm.

Klubb 360 at Göta Källare

Three dance floors with schlager and pop music hits, not to mention happy hour at the bar. Like in Åre, but on Söder. Hot shot anyone?

B-Line at Berns Terrass

Saturdays are taken care of by the B-Line gang on the summer patio at Berns. Sam True Dollar and Moon Suck will be playing the best hip hop and music with a lot of soul, making for a great summer evening at Berzelli Park.

Missy & Elliot at Trägården

Trendy DJs will be playing trendy music tonight. A little sugar-coated hip hop, some electro, and a solid dose of techno and house. Missy & Elliot, Don, Yxa, and Jeansbjörn are the evening’s connoisseurs.

VietNaam at Reisen

DJ VietNaam plays everything from S.W.V to Paul Simon. There is even the promise of another slow jam. The evening’s theme is waterfalls, making for a unique mix at Reisen.


Lenny Kravitz lets it rip on stage in Sweden

US artist Lenny Kravitz made headlines when he rocked his pants off at a rip-roaring gig in Stockholm last night – literally.

Kravitz performed to an audience of thousands of cheering fans at Stockholm's biggest theme park – Gröna Lund – on Monday night.

And the rock legend, who is not known for pulling any punches on stage, went all in to offer his Swedish audience the whole package. Yes, the whole package.

For as Kravitz crouched down in a laws-of-physics-defying way right at the start of the energetic performance, he managed to split his leather outfit at crotch level – leaving the artist with a gaping hole in his trousers.

And if there was one thing we did not know about the 51-year-old artist before that we know now – it is that he does not wear underwear. Let's just say the audience went nuts.

The Local is unable to publish picture proof of the revealing incident, but curious readers may click on the tweet below. Warning: contains nudity. Do not click if you are at work.

After leaving the stage for several minutes, the rocker reappeared in a new pair of trousers. And that's how you crack into the history books, folks.

“The producer stepped up and said that they had 'some problems on stage'. A bit later Kravitz came out wearing other trousers. He said 'sorry, I ripped my trousers',” a member of the audience, named only as Sara, told the Expressen tabloid after the show.

“It was insane, I killed myself laughing. And then I called my mum who was there at the show as well. Her reaction was the same and she almost killed herself laughing too,” she added.

Behind hits such as 'It Ain't Over 'Til It's Over', 'American Woman' and aptly titled 'Fly Away', Kravitz has sold almost 40 million albums worldwide and holds the record of most Grammy Awards in the category Best Male Rock Vocal Performance.

He commented on the incident in Stockholm late on Tuesday by tweeting a screen shot of a text message from fellow rock star Steven Tyler, of Aerosmith fame:

It is not the first time a world artist has a mishap on stage in Sweden this summer. But while Kravitz suffered only an awkward wardrobe malfunction, rocker Dave Grohl broke his leg in concert in Gothenburg in June.

The 46-year-old Foo Fighters frontman made headlines around Europe when he spectacularly returned after being briefly rushed to hospital to complete the show in a cast.
