Per Gessle’s Roxette – Warsaw, Poland – 21st October 2018 – #8

The 8th gig on tour turned out to be a fab one! The communication between Per & Co. and the audience was so far the best! People started queueing in front of the venue quite early and by 4-5 pm there were already more than 40 people waiting. The doors to the club opened only ... Read more

Per Gessle’s Roxette – Zurich, Switzerland – 19th October 2018 – #7

Per and his band had no break between the concerts in Vienna and Zurich. Many fans went to see the gang either for the first time or for the one and only time to Zurich. They were excited about the show and to see how Per Gessle’s Roxette works. What they didn’t expect was that ... Read more

Per Gessle’s Roxette – Vienna, Austria – 18th October 2018 – #6

The 6th gig on the Per Gessle’s Roxette tour, the 3rd seated show happened in Vienna. The venue being seated, we didn’t have to rush, we could take our time until we entered Stadthalle.

Per Gessle’s Roxette – Brussels, Belgium – 12th October 2018 – #4

Without a day off after the magnificent Hamburg show, Per & Co. performed in Brussels on Friday.

I must say it was a bit bizarre, listening ... Read more

Per Gessle’s Roxette – Hamburg, Germany – 11th October 2018 – #3

Hamburg, Germany, the best show so far on tour! And that was a seated gig! If all seated gigs are like this, I’m very much into them. Once the tour was announced and we could see there were several seated concerts, we thought OK, the setlist would probably be too slow, full of ballads, so ... Read more
