One of the most successful Swedish pop singers, Eric Saade, who represented the Scandinavian nation at Eurovision 2011, is ready to kick off his 2018 live tour around his country. Having been quite popular and beloved, recognizable around Europe and many times awarded, it’s more than sure that Eric has all those characteristics that every young man of his age could be jealous of.

The tour might be starting a few months later, but Eric’s preparations are already well underway! Having adopted a refreshed and very different look from that of Eurovision 2011, the singer has now released his tour’s full schedule. The first concert will be taking place on 22 February in the city of Linköping and after 10 shows, this journey is going to throw curtains on 20 April in Karlstad. Tickets for all concerts are available for purchasing here.

If you want what I want with you, you’ll do what you want with me…
Moreover, Eric released recently his newest single, titled Vill (Want) and is the Swedish version of Sabina Ddumba‘s song Want for the 8th season of the Swedish relality television show Så mycket bättre, where he is currently participating.

Eric Saade at Eurovision
Eric’s first Eurovision attempt took place in 2010, when he competed at Melodifestivalen 2010 with the song Manboy, written by Fredrik Kempe and Peter Boström. He managed to progress to the Grand Final and he came 3rd overall.
The golden Eurovision ticket didn’t take long to be offered to him, as one year later he was crowned the big winner of Melodifestivalen 2011 with the pop entry Popular, which became a smash hit in Sweden, Scandinavia and beyond. At the Düsseldorf-hosted Eurovision, Eric Saade was one of the hot favourites for the top placings, even for the victory. Eventually, it didn’t come as a surprise that he finished 3rd on the final scoreboard with 185 points.
However, this successful outcome didn’t mark the end of the Eurovision journey for him, as he tried again to represent Sweden in 2015, with the entry Sting, by Sam Arash Fahmi, Fredrik Kempe, Hamed “K-one” Pirouzpanah and David Kreuger. Once again, he made it to Melodifestivalen’s Grand Final, but he finished 5th. The winner of this year was the 2015 Eurovision winner Måns Zelmerlöw.
