Drammens Tidende did a short e-mail interview with #PerGessle about #Roxette before they perform at Elvefestivalen in Drammen on 22 August. Practice your Norwegian! Or read the short summary in English below. ;) /PP http://www.pressreader.com/norway/drammens-tidende/20150814/281844347366938/TextView Besides some words about history (Roxette and Gyllene Tider), Per is talking about songwriting and that one has to follow his gut feeling. He tells "I'm actually quite miserable to notice what works with the public. I'm bad at picking singles. That is done by others." In the interview Mr. G says if it wasn't music, he would probably work with something creative, achitecture or design. Regarding what he is most proud of during Roxette’s 30 years he says it’s that they survived. "It's a tough business that eats artists, musicians and songwriters for breakfast." He mentions that without Roxette's fantastic hit catalogue they could have never toured the world. To the question what the difference is between Roxette in 1990 and 2015 he replied: "Musically we are much better now. What we miss is the youthful curiosity that was later replaced by experience. And we can not stay in the bar as long as back then." [Well, this latter is not true for everybody in the band... ;) /PP]

On my way to Gothenburg to watch this! /P.

Boom! Bang! sending the crowd into a pop frenzy with their greatest hits from the last 30 years. It was a night of nostalgia bursting with energy as the dynamic duo of Per Gessle and Marie Fredriksson played tracks including Dressed For Success, Dangerous, Big L and Sleeping in My Car.” The Daily Mirror Over four years have passed since Roxette last visited South Africa to perform 10 sold out shows collectively between 2011 and 2012 on the world tour that followed the release of the album ”Charm School” in February 2011. 2016 see’s Roxette kicking off their 30th Anniversary Year and the South African tour dates in Johannesburg, Durban, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town mark the start of this very special year in Roxette’s record breaking history.

Per Gessle introduces Roxette Diaries at the Way Out West festival. // Team Rox Roxette Diaries is a new documentary film in which Jonas Åkerlund tells the story of how Roxette conquered the world. Through their private video recordings we get to follow Per Gessle and Marie Fredriksson during a time in their career that surpassed their wildest fantasies. With videos from behind-the-scene of music video productions in Los Angeles, studio sessions in Sweden and of screaming fans in Rio De Janeiro, this film gives us an amazing insight into their artist careers. All the video content in the film is personally recorded by Per and Åsa Gessle, which gives us an exclusive look at the life of one of Sweden’s biggest music exports of all time. Per Gessle will be present during the premiere on the 14th to answer the audience questions. - Roxette’s primetime happened between 1986 and 1995 during an era when a video camera wasn’t something you saw every day. But we were really early to own one, and got the chance to record most of it – says Per Gessle. I gave Jonas Ålerlund the mission to capture the spirit of Roxette’s early days in a film, as well as keeping it honest and make it silly and fun to watch. - I knew about Per’s box with all his private videocassettes for a long time before I finally decided to bring them with me to Stockholm and digitalize them – says Jonas Åkerlund. That’s when the idea for Roxette Diaries was born. This journey back in time is like a smorgasbord for all the fans. It’s a reminder of all the great music they released and how huge Roxette was as a band. Roxette Diaries is the ultimate behind-the-scenes film with 90 minutes of history straight out of Per and Maries diaries. Roxette Diaries will premiere on Friday August 14th 15:00 at the Capitol cinema in Gothenburg during the Way Out West festival. The film is also shown Saturday 15th at 15:15 in the film tent in the festival area.

Still summer in Sweden! /P.
