Mono Mind – Mind Control – the review

Well then there now, Per Gessle is behind Mono Mind?? Now that’s mind blowing. Who woulda thunk? Per, Christoffer, Clarence and Helena – Dr. Robot, Bright Jones, Rain Davis and Cooky Carter!


Per Gessle’s Birthday present to himself…

Per Gessle Presents Mono Mind – release January 12 when Per turns 60!

TDR Per Gessle Roxette Unofficial Tour Book 2018
TDR presents: Per Gessle’s Roxette’s…

It’s time for Xmas again, and this time The Daily Roxette goes all in with a specially made Xmas present for all of you!


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.

Per Gessle 60 for 60 ENCORE. En vacker dag (Some Day.) Taken from the album "En vacker dag," it was also recorded as "One of These Days" on "Small Town Talk." Written and recorded for "Mazarin" in 2003 it was recorded too late to be included on the album. The title back then was "Måla mitt minne" ("Paint My Memory".) It was however recorded by Freddie Wadling in a version which closely resembles Per's. The Swedish title "En vacker dag" translates literally to "A Beautiful Day" but that's not what the true meaning is, it means "some day" or as they did on STT - "One of These Days," at least in Per's context. This was #63 on our chart.


En vacker dag

En vacker dag Så ska jag sitta ner Och måla av Mitt minne utav dej Så blå så blå Var himlen där du stod I en koltrasts sång Jag såg för första gång Jag såg vår första gång Då Så mjukt i guld Solen föll på din vita hud Som om livet blev öppnat av Gud Sha la la Med vind och våg S...

In the middle of all Mono Mind buzz and info there is always space for some vintage Rox! How about this one, folks? /P.

Have a fab weekend, y'all! /Dr R.

Please share! News from the world outside the Rox bubble, and we're getting serious for a moment: Maybe you have heard already that hackers have published a huge database with hundreds of millions of email-password combinations. There is a website where you can check if your email address/username or password is part of that leak. If so, then change it! After having tested a couple of "usual suspects" on that site, we can officially say that a lot of Roxette fans should really be more careful. Look here: The password "roxette" appears 4.292 times, "pergessle" 117 times, "gessle" 177 times, "mariefredriksson" 2 times, "itmusthavebeenlove" 23 times, "thelook" 232 times, "gyllenetider" 48 times and so on and so on...
