Sjöhistoriska: It’s where the water flows…

STOCKHOLM – “Shattered by rain”, Marie sang during Roxette’s epic ballad “Crash! Boom! Bang!”, while the drops were dancing wildly in the glow of the stage lights. In fact, the heavy rain did not destroy anything that night.

Roxette at home

HALMSTAD – Between the organization of the fans at the gate and the tight security, no one
needed to or was allowed to run to the front row. For the most part, everything was very calm and orderly. Big relief.

London Baby! – RoXXXette @ The O2.

LONDON – My Roxette History: In brief, it’s my 4th ever Roxette concert despite being a fan since 1988. My Parents thought me to young to attend the Joyride or indeed Crash! Boom! Bang! World Tours when they hit the UK back in the early nineties. I don’t think I ever forgave them for that. I’ve followed them since 1988 and have amassed a Roxette Collection to be proud of. My latest item being the rare French “Fading Like A Flower” CD Single with the Black Cover. Love it!

Reviewing The Look (2015 Remake)

Another year, another “The Look?” Or possibly another “It Must Have Been Love.” That’s how many fans feel.

LONDON – (This review is a little bit late being posted – flights were delayed due to technical reasons and weather and then my luggage was lost. The joys of living on an island! It’s here now though!)

Roxette – live at Sunset

ZURICH – There I was standing. With my hands placed on the edge of the stage, lowering my head in order to relax my neck for a moment, asking me what has just happened in the last 100 minutes.

Roxette blasts Piazza Grande to bits

LOCARNO – What can I say?? God bless Switzerland! But let’s start from the beginning, yes, I mean the beginning for me. Even though I have been a fan for so many years, Locarno has a special place in my heart because it’s the place where my dream of seeing Roxette live became true for the first time in 2011.

RfS reviews The Look!


Renowned for Sound | Single Review: Roxette – ‘The Look 2015′

While it’s impossible, in my opinion, to outdo an already masterpiece hit like some songs that have been crafted over the last few decades, some artists try to shape their peers recordings in a way to give the track a fresh perspective for their own fan-base while capitalising on a track that could…

HAVING A COUPLE DAYS OFF THE ROAD I thought it was convenient to say a big THANK YOU to: GHS CUSTOM SHOP for some outstanding guitar strings tuned with elegance by Micke N-S and Jake Jay on our vintage electric guitars (only one broken on the whole tour so far for me (too much asskickin' on Dressed For Suceess the other day...) AKUSTIKKEN + MARTIN & CO for splendid Martin guitars + strings DUNLOP CUSTOM PICKS for those custom made picks I do my best to spread around the globe with mixed results. Hey, you're pretty good at catchin'!! To my defense, those red acoustic guitar picks are so thin, they won't fly..... We certainly appreciate these companies support and outstanding products. True love never dies. Badabam! /P.
