Håkan Hellström at Ullevi
Soon it will be time again. Håkan Hellström will perform four concerts at Ullevi in Gothenburg in the summer of 2022. As August approaches, there is "Håkan fever" all over Gothenburg and large parts of Sweden.
Almost seven years ago, it was decided that Håkan Hellström would perform at Slottskogsvallen in Gothenburg, just like at the acclaimed concert the year before. This time, the pressure on tickets proved to be colossal and the concert was moved to the classic Ullevi venue, where artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Celine Dion and the Rolling Stones had previously dominated the stage.
Since then, Gothenburg's very own star has delivered one audience record after another and tickets to Håkan Hellström's concerts continue to be in high demand.
A living legend
In recent years, Håkan Hellström has grown to become one of Sweden's biggest artists ever. Perhaps it is the almost mythical concerts at Ullevi that paved the way for this rarely seen success story.
During his first concert at Ullevi, Håkan performed 29 songs, with guest artists such as Veronica Maggio, Kapten Röd and Thomas von Brömssen. The audience numbered 69,349, which was a new Nordic audience record!
The gig became legendary and for the performance Håkan Hellström was rewarded with a top rating of 5 out of 5 fours in Göteborgs-Posten. The concert was such a success that those who did not buy tickets soon realised that they had missed out on a huge experience!
Fortunately, Håkan decided to try again to fill Ullevi. What he didn't know at the time was that his fan base had grown exponentially since all the positive feedback from the first concert. When the time came again, tickets sold out in record time. A new record with over 70,000 tickets sold at the 2015 ticket release.
But it wouldn't end there. Shortly thereafter, another concert was released, which also sold out before the blink of an eye. On 5 June 2016, the new Nordic record for arena concerts was set with a crowd of 70,144.
Shortly after the two new successful concerts, Håkan performed two more concerts at Ullevi in 2017. True to his habit, he sold out these concerts in record time as well.
Love never ends
After a couple of years in silence from the big stages, Håkan Hellström announced once again that it was time for concerts at Ullevi. Tickets were initially released for two concerts in the summer of 2020, but the love from the fans refuses to end. After both concerts sold out in a matter of minutes, Sweden's favourite artist announced another concert the same summer.
As if that wasn't enough, it is now clear that Håkan will be the first in Gothenburg and Ullevi's history to perform four times at the largest arena in the Nordic countries, in one and the same summer!
