Per and his tour visit rainy Helsinki

HELSINKI – Per Gessle had brought his band to Helsinki, Finland, in the most miserable November weather you can imagine. The concert was originally planned to a larger arena in the neighbouring city of Espoo, but moved and re-scheduled to Kulttuuritalo (Culture House) in the capital.


Per Gessle’s “60 for 60” #per60

It’s Per’s 60th birthday soon so we came up with a most splendid idea. You’ll love this. Again!


SAAB Arena was conquered

LINKÖPING – It was a cold, dark and dreary night, outside. Inside was a totally different melody! Inside the SAAB Arena there was this little pop orchestra setting up shop.


Per rocks Mockba (Moscow)

MOSCOW – The concert in Moscow took place in Crocus City Hall. It seems that musicians and organizers like the cooperation, since all Moscow concerts since 2011 are held here.


The winners of the meet & greet contest

TDR presents, in cooperation with Live Nation and Dimberg Jernberg Management, a meet & greet with Per Gessle.


Per Gessle’s Roxette hits Per’s…

STOCKHOLM – The Waterfront Congress Center. Per with band hits his second home town, and with force! The Crown Princess Victoria with husband Prince Daniel, Peter Jöback and Jonas Åkerlund were all there.

TDR proudly presents Per Gessle's Roxette's Unofficial Tour Book 2018 with hundreds of selected photos, all our reports and this year's Xmas and after-tour interview with Per Gessle. The ebook version will be available FOR FREE for our readers on our website from December 24 on. More details to come! Ho ho ho!🎄🎄🎄


Per's 60 for 60. #32 Småstadsprat (Small Town Talk.) Here it is, the Swedish version of "Small Town Talk," this time with Lasse Winnerbäck as the duet partner. A very low-key, and again sad, song. The man fell in love with a girl, and she left. It's unclear if they ever were a couple or not. Like we mentioned a few weeks ago, this was also recorded in English with Nick Lowe. Small town gossip can really ruin things for you... If you want to play it on the geet: Capo 2. Verse D D A D G Em A Bm G A, chorus Em7 D A, solo Am Fmaj7 G6 Am Fmaj7 G #per60

Per's 60 for 60. #33 I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend. A Ramones cover, from 2002! It's rather common for Per and Gyllene, and even Roxette, to play covers from time to time. It's not as usual that the songs are recorded and released though. This story is kind of funny: A bunch of Swedish rock bands such as Hellacopters, Wilmer X and Backyard Babies decided to record a tribute album to The Ramones; The Song Ramones the Same. Per heard about this project and wanted in, so he recorded this little ditty and also "Sheena is a Punk Rocker" and "Gimme Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment." Only "Boyfriend" was included on the actual album. As a side note, "Gimme" includes the exact same guitar solo as "Opportunity Nox" performed by Per. #per60

Still going strong after 39 years! "Flickorna på TV2" was released today 40-1 years ago! 📺 The single was originally released with "Flickorna på TV2" as the B-side and "Himmel No. 7" as the A-side, but radios started playing the B-side and so a week later the single was re-issued as a double A-side. 📻 A1 - "Flickorna på TV2"; A2 - "Himmel No. 7". 🎶 Does it deserve to be celebrated next year? 🎶 #GT40? ✌ What do you think? 🤔 /PP Stills are from this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKIebBaKWjs

Per's 60 for 60. #34 Inte tillsammans, inte isär (Not Together, Not Apart.) Another one of those songs about a struggling couple. This one can't be together, but they also can't be apart. When summer is here, they are all in love, but then when fall comes, they can't be together anymore. What to do, what to do? A great song from "Scener" also released on an EP with Marlon Brando on the sleeve. Marie Fredriksson sings the song too, since it's a duet. The sound is very Gyllene of this era. When a morning turns August, the times of loneliness begin, because we can't be together and we can't be apart. Per changed the lyrics when he performs it live because "(he) didn't like them". The demo from 1984 has totally different lyrics. Speaking of that demo, we don't know who sings on it, but she really can't sing... And how about that accordion solo in the finished product? #per60

Still like this song. Written for Roxette and Marie to sing (in January 2002) but we never got the chance to record it. It stands out a bit on the "Son Of A Plumber"-album, it's much more mainstream than anything else (Hey mr DJ excluded...). In the normal stereomix (this unofficial video seems for some reason to be in mono) you'll find the drums to the left (a little production gimmick we picked up from Nick Lowe's "Crackin' Up"). /P.
