Sweden: Melodifestivalen 2022 tour is cancelled – All shows to be held in Stockholm!

The rapidly spreading Omicron COVID19 variant and all the latest measures imposed by governments in most countries around the world could not leave Eurovision related events unaffected.

Thus, a few minutes ago, after SVT has gone into several crisis meetings in order to come to a decision, they announced from their official Melodifestivalen accounts on all social media, that the whole selection process of all the semi-finals and the grand final will exclusively be held in Stockholm.

This decision contradicts what SVT has originally planned, for the selection process to return to their usual tours this year.

All six shows will be crowded, as it seems, according to the Swedish health authorities’ guidelines for indoor gatherings.

The show

This means that the previously scheduled shows in Malmö, Göteborg, Linköping, Lidköping, Örnsköldsvik are cancelled and they’re all going to take place in the Swedish capital. Until now, there is no information whether the scheduled dates for Melodifestivalen 2022 are affected as well.
