Roxette were supposed to start the last leg of their massive RoXXXette 30th Anniversary Tour on June 3rd.

“XXX – The Daily Roxette Show”: Tour continues at Hotel Tylösand

+++ The following story was our April Fools Joke for 2016. No word of it is true, except that Pelle likes shorts. +++ The Daily Roxette goes on tour. Well, sort of.

The plan is to stay in Sweden for a couple of months in 2017, the shows will be placed in Per Gessle's Hotel Tylösand in Halmstad and the title will be... drum roll... "The Daily Roxette show". Time to ask The Man a couple of questions... Read the full story...

Roxette rock the Ticketpro Dome

Warsaw – the awkward front row review

WARSAW - It all begins... Imagine: it’s early July, you are just back from a few concerts and some holidays, googling “Roxette Warszawa” (as the concert in the Torwar Hall, Warsaw, happened less than two weeks ago) and among reviews and photos you find an information that Roxette will cross your country again, just in a couple of weeks. Wow. Read the full story...


Elvefestival: One more time, Europe!

DRAMMEN - Roxers like to call this the Neverending Tour, of course with a twinkle in the eye. For me, besides its fun aspect, the expression also represents a very powerful idea, a mighty thought which, among others, strengthens us in our fan-being, a beautiful scenario filled with love and dedication. Read the full story...


Rox in Drammen, part 1

DRAMMEN - When you write a review about a concert which closes a tour it is easy to get a bit nostalgic, but I don't want mine to be so, and I prefer to fill my words just with positivity, gratefulness and passion, which is what I honestly feel at the end of Roxette's European tour.

Sjöhistoriska: It’s where the water flows…

Roxette at home

HALMSTAD - Between the organization of the fans at the gate and the tight security, no one needed to or was allowed to run to the front row. For the most part, everything was very calm and orderly. Big relief. Read the full story...


London Baby! – RoXXXette @ The O2.

LONDON - My Roxette History: In brief, it's my 4th ever Roxette concert despite being a fan since 1988. My Parents thought me to young to attend the Joyride or indeed Crash! Boom! Bang! World Tours when they hit the UK back in the early nineties. I don't think I ever forgave them for that. I've followed them since 1988 and have amassed a Roxette Collection to be proud of. My latest item being the rare French "Fading Like A Flower" CD Single with the Black Cover. Love it! Read the full story...


Roxette conquers London’s O2 Arena!

LONDON - (This review is a little bit late being posted – flights were delayed due to technical reasons and weather and then my luggage was lost. The joys of living on an island! It’s here now though!) Read the full story...


Roxette – live at Sunset

ZURICH – There I was standing. With my hands placed on the edge of the stage, lowering my head in order to relax my neck for a moment, asking me what has just happened in the last 100 minutes. Read the full story...


Roxette blasts Piazza Grande to bits

LOCARNO - What can I say?? God bless Switzerland! But let's start from the beginning, yes, I mean the beginning for me. Even though I have been a fan for so many years, Locarno has a special place in my heart because it's the place where my dream of seeing Roxette live became true for the first time in 2011.
