If you are into the fab Venetian Blinds #Roxette is using on tour as a backdrop, you might be interested in a short video of testing them and some info about them. An article was shared by the maker, Perry Scenic Creative on 22nd May saying the set was back to them for a quick service. This means they had to test the blinds after the Bucharest storm to be able to use them without any issues at further concerts. /PP Video of the testing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZA7b6k9lMM Article: http://perryscenic.com/news/all/24/1/

#Roxette - While can’t stop listening to the remake or watching the making of video, don’t miss out on the KappAhl interview with #PerGessle about the project and more! Check it at the link below! /PP Complete interview: http://www.kappahl.com/thelook#interview Parts of the interview: :) What is the The Look about/what does it stand for? PG: ”What is it about? Explaining lyrics doesn't help. I never do that. It is up to each person to interpret them in their own way. That is how all art becomes personal. It is about you! The most important thing about all expression is to feel, not necessarily understand. For me it means cocky, young, direct power pop that makes me laugh and smile and live.” What makes a person beautiful? PG: ”Some people have the good fortune to be born with an attractive appearance. But it isn't always so straightforward. Beauty is in the eyes and the body language. I think it helps if you are happy in your skin. Then you are automatically beautiful.” About the fans: PG: ”Sometimes we have to pinch ourselves to remind us that we would be nothing without our fans and our audience. They are what gives us positive energy and mean that we never get tired.” Greatest passion outside music? PG: ”I am interested in my family, modern art, design, photography and Formula 1. In that order. And wine is fun.” What do you like to do most when are taking a break from music? PG: ”I never take a break. My wife says I should.” Listen to The Look 2015 Remake: https://play.spotify.com/album/1KhfyT7XIOMhl2amP6Wdxr The making of video (stills are from this one): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHcUAXfxedo

The Look (2015 Remake) by Roxette

Roxette releases remake of "The Look"!! //Team MF Roxette has together with production duo Addeboy vs. Cliff recorded a brand new version of their massive 1989 hit The Look. On the heel of their world wide XXX 30th Anniversary Tour, notably with sold out arenas in the UK and Germany, they are now releasing this exclusive 2015 single remake. This remake, which today is being released on all digital platforms worldwide, will spearhead a big fashion campaign in Sweden, Norway, Finland & Poland later this fall. Roxette is one of the biggest acts to ever emerge out of Scandinavia and a truly global pop phenomena. They are currently out on a highly successful international tour, XXX 30th Anniversary Tour, selling out arenas all across the world. After a string of very succesful summer dates across Germany and Austria, they last week sold out the O2 Arena in London, where - according to UK newspaper The Independent - ”Roxette…still hits the big notes”. With over 75 million records sold over a career spanning almost three decades, there is not that much left for Roxette to prove. Instead they can let creativity and experimentation form their musical narrative. When they were asked if they could provide the music for a major fashion campaign in their native Sweden they felt that collaborating with up-and-coming producer duo Addeboy vs. Cliff could be an interesting approach. - For this fashion campaign we felt we needed to come up with something really special. Should I write a new song? Was there anything from our earlier records that we could use? To make a brand new version of The Look (which is 27 years old!) felt very tempting, yet I knew it was going to be a pretty big challenge. But The Look is obviously a great title for a fashion campaign! A few months prior we had started to work with the producers Addeboy vs. Cliff and I had a feeling that together with them, we could find a new angle to the track. And as soon as I heard their musical ideas for a remake of The Look, I knew it was going to work, says Per Gessle about recording the new version. The Look was Roxette's first Billboard No 1 and the kick-start of an amazing international carreer. The Look (2015 Remake) will be available both digitally and as a physical single. It's available as of today on all digital platforms. The seven inch vinyl version of it will be released on August 28th and is already now available to pre-order.

20 tour dates for 2016?

Per says in the Kappahl interview that the plan is to go on with the tour until 2016 (as he already mentioned many times before, and that would be the meaning behind the whole XXX tour, as Roxette turns 30 in 2016!). Now he revealed that Roxette plans to do about 80 dates until 2016. […]
