Can’t get enough of Rox? There’s a new tribute show.
New Rox tribute band
The Mighty Roxette have spoken (Well, posted on their website www.roxette.se):
On Friday Feb 7th we’ll kick off the 2nd part of the XXX 30th Anniversary Tour in Auckland, New Zealand and our plan is to continue touring for quite a while. Hope to see y’all shakin’ your booties at the shows.
New Roxette-music is also coming up before you know it. Stay tuned for an irresistable excess of chords and choruses, folks!
If you’re into what we’re doing on a daily basis please follow us on Facebook. It’s free and in color.
Lots of love from Per & Marie.
Did anyone catch this baby in the Party Crasher EPK? “Unlistenable” according to Per.
A bonus: now subtitled! Part 2 is also subtitled.
Why it seems every other day is Thursday lately… #tbt
Speaking of Crush On You, that little ditty, remember? Well, we’ve been inquiring why this single was ditched and the sad truth is that no one within the Roxette camp remembers anymore…
Hey Roxers! TDR has a little project, and we need your help. Please send us Roxette’s set lists from 1987 (Rock Runt Riket) and up to 2001 (Room Service.) We have some, but we don’t have all, and neither does Per Gessle. [email protected] if you have ANY info. (Or post them here!)

After a few years of fighting in courts it has now been ruled in Live Nation’s favor regarding the moved Roxette concert in 2010. Biljett.nu lost the case and therefore has to pay the court costs of 500000 SEK. (55000 €). The court says that the contract between Live Nation and Biljett.nu was null and void and thus LN does not need to pay the damages Biljett.nu demanded.
So, did anyone at all get your hands on some Rox/Per records this weekend? The TDR staff surely didn’t.

Yesterday it was announced that Roxette would come to Tallinn, Estonia November 24, and today a Russian site announced these dates. It seems the Neverending Tour is kicking into gear again, and once again it starts in the east.
