You can now pre-order our limited edition “Boxette” at the link below. https://lnk.to/Boxette “Boxette” is a four DVD collection of five live shows, spanning from 1988 to 2001. It covers concert footage from the two tours following Roxette’s “Look Sharp!” release in 1988 and 1989, as well as material from their two world tours – “Live-Ism” from Sydney 1991 and “Crash! Boom! Live!” from Johannesburg in 1995. Finally there is also a live concert which was recorded on the final leg of the group’s “Room Service” tour in November 2001, and streamed on the Internet back in the days—but which is now digitally remastered and for the first time available on DVD. The “Boxette” box also features a booklet with unique pictures and interviews with former band members. https://lnk.to/Boxette

And on a related subject: Galning was relased today, in 1985. Enjoy the never released English lyrics: The night is falling He's getting ready to go Dressed in black leather disguised, noone will know He knows he must be fast Go, go just hit it and run right through the back street into the shade and he's gone A pyromaniac a pyromaniac a pyromaniac is looking for a heart to set on fire Headlines in the papers Eyewitness news on TV Newsbreak on the radio A general call on CB This street's a jungle you know you gotta be smart the sharks are up for a bite Stay cool, keep playing your part A pyromaniac a pyromaniac a pyromaniac is looking for a heart to set on fire A pyromaniac a pyromaniac a pyromaniac is looking for a heart to set on fire WORDS AND MUSIC: PER GESSLE-C.HÖGBERG


Timing is everything. This was released in January 1984.


Back to the rehearsal room today. Tour around the corner. See y'all soon! /P.

We're getting closer to the tour, so here's what we know and even more what we don't know. What are your points?


What do we know? Thoughts on the upcoming tour

A bit more than two weeks before the tour starts and everything is way too silent. It's not that we miss the obnoxious "Sooooo Christoffer!" (and we know that Chris will agree with us here) but a little more insight into what is going on behind the curtains would be nice. Rehearsal videos? The band

(and we know that Chris will agree with us here) but a little more insight into what is going on behind the curtains would be nice. Rehearsal videos? The band getting in shape? Stage design presentation? So far nothing. We certainly think it's time to reveal some secrets so we sat down and talked to ourselves. Enjoy and please share your thoughts with us!

Another Per concert has changed. Karlstad, Sweden has been changed from standing to "unnumbered sitting" and on a first come first serve basis. Bought tickets are still valid. "Hej! Vi kontaktar dig angående dina ståplats-biljetter till Per Gessle's Roxette på Löfbergs Arena i Karlstad 9/11. Arrangören har bestämt att göra om ståplatsen till onumrerade sittplatser. Precis som vid ett stående golv så kommer de som kommer först in i arenan att få ta stolarna längst fram. Dina biljetter gäller fortfarande, du behöver inte byta ut dem."

There was a time when we released singles that weren't on the "proper" albums. Just on compliations. Just like Day Tripper and Strawberry Fields. Or Ljudet av ett annat hjärta. /P.

Per Gessle in a German video report: "I only have good memories of course, we have a very strong fan base here, our songs are often played on the radio, and Germany is definitely the second home for Roxette."

Polish interview with Per Gessle about Small Town Talk, Roxette, Marie, the beginnings, It Must Have Been Love, success, songwriting and the tour. Nothing new to hardcore fans though. ;) /PP Cantara Music: - Your main collaborator on the record is Helena Josefsson. You’ve been working together for 15 years. Aren’t you bored with each other? PG: - No, on the contrary! Helena is an amazing singer, it’s great working with her. It’s getting better each year. Besides that, for me as a songwriter working with her is interesting, because her style of singing is completely different vs. Marie’s, who sings more boldly and rocky.

Per Gessle in a German interview: "It's hard to listen to today's top 40 stuff. This is not music but a formula of record companies that do not want to challenge anyone anymore. Americana keeps the tunes up, telling stories. At country, I feel good, as well as Dylan and Springsteen feel comfortable there." … To the question if he will continue with Nashville sound: "Maybe I go to New Orleans for my next album," he laughs. To the question if he could imagine writing Dylanish protest songs against populists and neo-Nazis: "I have always sprinkled small references in my texts. But political in a complete song? I think others are better at that." Short silence. "But even if you're not good at taking a position, you can't avoid it right now. We're all in the middle of it." /PP Read the complete article here: https://www.landeszeitung.de/blog/nachrichten/kultur-nachrichten/1890452-per-gessle-bei-country-fuehle-ich-mich-wohl
