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

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 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

OÖNachrichten (Austria) did an interview with Per Gessle. /PP https://www.nachrichten.at/nachrichten/kultur/Der-Star-bin-nicht-ich-es-sind-die-Songs;art16,3006281#ref=rss OÖN: - Which songs will be on the setlist in Vienna? PG: - 80% Roxette, plus some solo songs. We start the rehearsals this Saturday, so I honestly don't know yet. The first setlist, which I created on a trial basis, stupidly included 72 songs (laughs). There are so many Roxette songs that we've never played live before, like "Milk and Toast and Honey".
