Famous Swedish musicians Anders and Jens Johansson will play three more shows before their short Swedish Tour ends. The Swedish tour started on the 4th of November in Uppsala, Sweden and will end on the 27th of November in Trollhättan, Sweden. After the final show, both musicians will focus on their own bands and projects once again.
Both brothers Johansson truly have a long and rich history in the music and metal world. Jens Johansson is former keyplayer for bands like Yngwie Malmsteen and DIO and today he is best known for his work with Finnish powermetal giants Stratovarius.
Anders Johansson was the former drummer of bands like Hammerfall and Yngwie Malmsteen, but today he plays drums for Swedish Tungsten as well as worldfamous Manowar.
When the brothers join forces in this project, it isn’t metal what they compose. Anders and Jens Johansson play Jazz with Jens Johansson on piano and Anders Johansson on Bass.
Anders Johansson on how it all began: “When our father was turning 80 (even though this was imaginary because he died when he was 37) they asked if we could play on Swedish TV. We said yes… I borrowed an uptight contra bass from Per Stadin the bass player in Silver Mountain. Practised by myself for a few hours. Only two songs. Hadn’t played bass before really. We didn’t even rehearse together before. Like assholes J I messed up. Of course. But after this we rehearsed and started playing gigs. Nowadays it is a natural thing.”
The Swedish tour kicked off on the 4th of November in Uppsala, Sweden. After visiting several venue’s, Anders and Jens Johansson are nearing the end of their mini tour in their home country. Before the tour will be concluded in Trollhätan on the 27th of November, both brothers will visit Göteborg (November, 26)and Visby (November, 19) as well. After these last shows, both Anders and Jens will focus once again on their own project’s and bands.
