If you've missed opportunity to watch Carola's tribute concert to Elvis Presley and Barbara Streysand in Dalhalla this July TV4 gives you a chance to see it. These artists meant a lot for Carola and her family so this concert was also devoted to memories of her beloved parents.
Carola has started programme riding to the stage on a bike and singing Elvis' "See See Rider" continuing this rock'n'roll part with "Burning Love", "Love Me Tender" (in acoustic), Elvis-medley ("Blue Swede Shoes", "Tutti Frutti", "That's Alright Mama", "Hound Dog", "Shake Rattle and Roll", "Jailhouse Rock") and "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" that she presented earlier this year at Allsång På Skansen. Next part of programme devoted to Barbara Streysand has started from beautiful performance of "Somewhere" with Carola floating on boat from behind of the stage in fabulous dress singing "Happy Days Are Here Again", "Woman In Love" (truly great cover being one of the highlights of concert in my opinion), "Enough Is Enough" (disco-performance that got really great responce from audience), "Papa, can you hear me?" and finished with Elvis' "Walk A Mile In My Shoes" and "An American Trilogy".
On the stage Carola was supported by band of live band and MF-choir professionals Michael Blomqvist, Anna Nilsson and Joanna Eriksson. Really great show proving Carola's status as one of the biggest Swedish stars, watch it here or right below.
