We were informed that AllMusic.com published quite favourable review of Gessle “Party crasher”. Suprisingly, the album seems to be released in Canada on Sony BMG Music lable. We do not know if it is the same version as it was published in United Kingdom or is it something different. Thanks to roxtexanet at TDR for […]

ARNHEM (Updated) –
On Friday the 13th of November, the Daily Roxette joined Roxette at the Gelredome in Arnhem for a wonderful night. During the first half of the Night of the Proms, a Swedish symphony called ‘Midsommarvaka’ magically changed into the first string arrangements of ‘Wish I Could Fly’. After the stunning synergy between Roxette and Il Novecento, the presenter of the evening promised more Roxette during the second half. In the intermission, The Daily Roxette had an exclusive interview with the Man himself.

First of all, welcome back in Holland Per! How does it feel to be back so soon after the concert in Amsterdam earlier this year?
It was a different story. But it was great, of course, coming here with Marie, Jonas and everything else – it’s cool, yeah. And we look forward to having these seven nights in a row in Rotterdam. I remember playing in Ahoy before. It’s a great crowd.
So what are your feelings about the Proms, since it’s such a bizarre thing on its own?
It is. Very much so. It’s impossible to understand, unless you see it for yourself. You have to really be a part of it to understand it. It’s really hard to describe to friends at home what we are actually doing – it’s fun, it’s great! It’s also a great step. I think it’s a very clever move of Marie, instead of doing a full tour or a full concert. She’s not ready to do those things. With Night of the Proms you share the responsibility with other artists, and you're just doing your four or five songs. And we're doing lots of shows, so she's getting back into the concert mode.
It is no secret anymore. Per Gessle created his own, long-awaited account on Facebook. You can become his “internet friend” as well as write few words to the Man. Just don’t overdo with sending him messages or videos!
As we informed previously, the broadcast of Per Gessle’s concert in Cirkus, Stockholm, due to technical difficulties, was moved from October 24 till November 14. Now the concert is available over the internet and we were informed that this is a compilation of two-day recordings, so listen to it carefully! LISTEN
