In 2012/2013, Europe celebrates 30 years as a band and this will be celebrated at the Sweden Rock Festival greatly as the gig is filmed for a live DVD.
John’s 1 year younger sister TONE NORUM broke through in 1986 with the debut album “One Of A Kind” written by Europe’s Joey Tempest. Hits like “Can’t You Stay” and “Stranded”. The tour premiere took place in Nöjesparken, Varberg October 24 the same year and then the success was followed up with one of Sweden’s biggest ballad hits “Allt i ik Känner” a duet with Tommy Nilsson from the film PS Sista Sommaren (Svensktoppen for 35 weeks during the period 31 January – December 4, 1988). Other hits during his career have been “Point Of No Return” were no less than Yngwie Malmsteen visits and “10 Times Out Of 1” a duet with Mikael Rickfors.
