Only one day left until "Name You Beautiful" is released! Here is a message from Per! / Team PG

Gyllene Tider - The Heartland Café tour in Avesta March 17 1984! Marie behind MP. Those were the days. The stage was too small for Gyllene's backdrop etc.

Can you help us settle an argument please?

What to play? What not to play? These are the questions...

An esteemed wise man once rapped "...Guess who's back? Back again. Gessle's back, tell a friend..."

Gessle tours Europe with Roxettes music! Good news for European fans of Swedish super group and classic hit makers Roxette—the duo’s songwriter Per Gessle is embarking on a European tour focusing on the mighty Roxette song catalogue this autumn. The group’s charismatic singer, Marie Fredriksson, announced her withdrawal from touring due to health problems in the spring of 2016, shortly before the release of the group’s tenth studio album, “Good Karma”. When faced with this situation, Gessle decided to channel his energy into writing material for a Swedish solo project recorded in Nashville later that year. The recordings were made with long-time Swedish musical partners Christoffer Lundquist, Clarence Öfwerman, Anders Herrlin and Helena Josefsson, coupled with a long list of top-league American session players. Mixing parts of the Roxette touring band with new musicians, Gessle in the summer of 2017 toured Sweden in support of the first of two mini albums from the Nashville sessions, “En vacker natt” (“A Beautiful Night”). Violin and mandolin player Malin-My Wall, drummer Andreas Dahlbäck and Ola Gustafsson on pedal steel, mandolin and guitar added a fresh touch of Americana, which merged seamlessly with the seasoned Roxette musicians Christoffer Lundquist (guitar), Clarence Öfwerman (keyboards), Magnus Börjeson (bass) and Helena Josefsson (backing vocals). Both the tour and the Nashville recorded album were enthusiastically received for adding new perspective and depth to Gessle’s music. - I loved playing with this band, and then it hit me—what if we could do a similar thing dedicated to Roxette music. With Marie unable to perform, all those songs would just gather dust and I was thrilled by the idea of hearing this band performing them, Per Gessle says. - Marie of course is irreplaceable, he adds. But she sends her blessings, and we both think that this could be a great way to keep the songs fresh by playing them with a slightly different twist in front of all those wonderful people that has been following us through the years. Gessle emphasizes that the band is able to cover all aspects of Roxette music; from the hook-laden power-pop hits to the mighty ballads that still gets heavy rotation on classic pop radio all over the world. And he promises to dig deep in his song-vault for some surprises as well. - Yeah, that’s really the fun part of it—I love playing the big hits like “The Look”, “Listen To Your Heart”, “It Must Have Been Love”, “Joyride” and “How Do You Do!”, but a tour like this is also a great opportunity to rediscover some of the great, but lesser played, songs and find out what we can make of them. Just wait and see… Dubbed “Per Gessle’s Roxette”, a European tour covering ten countries kicks off in Hamburg, Germany, on October 11. An English album -“Small Town Talk”- featuring material from the Nashville sessions (including a duet with British pop maestro Nick Lowe) as well as new recordings with the touring band, will be released internationally to coincide with the tour. The tour will include the following stops: 11.10 Hamburg, Laeiszhalle (GER) 12.10 Bryssel, Ancienne Belgique (BEL) 15.10 London, Hammersmith Apollo (GBR) 16.10 Manchester, Apollo (GBR) 18.10 Wien, Stadthalle F (AUT) 19.10 Zurich, Halle 622 (SUI) 21.10 Warszawa, Stodola (POL) 22.10 Berlin, Admiralspalast (GER) 23.10 Köln, E-Werk (GER) 25.10 Utrecht, Muziekcentrum Vredenburg (NED) 27.10 Halmstad, Halmstad Arena 3.11 Espoo, Metro Areena (FIN) 5.11 Stockholm, Waterfront 9.11 Karlstad, Löfbergs Arena 10.11 Linköping, Saab Arena 15.11 Oslo, Sentrum Scene (NOR) 16.11 Göteborg, Scandinavium. More gigs to come! / Team Roxette

The Beacon Theatre

Swedish pop duo Roxette brought its Join the Joyride! World Tour to The Beacon Theatre on this day in 1992. With an arsenal of hook-laden singles to draw on, including “The Look,” “It Must Have Been Love” and “Listen to Your Heart,” singer Marie Fredriksson and guitarist Per Gessle were at the height of their commercial powers.

We aren't sure if this is Mono Mind's official Soundcloud account but anyway here is the song we were asked not to have on our website.

No plans. When these three guys and a girl got together to make music they had only one mission on their minds; to have fun. Emerging from different backgrounds and experiences, Dr Robot, Rain Davis,

"You better believe it, a broken heart can never keep time..." A short review of Name You Beautiful: it's a fast paced song sung mainly by Per but with lots of help from Helena. Computerized drums and a mean keyboard fiddle, steel guitar and banjo. That does however not mean it's country song. A song to compare it with would possibly be Goodbye to You maybe. With some luck a radio hit. Snippet from Roxette Café:

Per Gessle is back with a dynamic song that could have easily been the opening song to Roxette’s last studio album Good Karma. “Name You Beautiful” is a joyful and fast paced earworm that is quite possibly one of the very finest songs that Per Gessle has penned in the latter half of his illust...

Roxette at The Beacon in NYC, Sept. 2, 2012. A magical night. Per's coming in for landing.

Per Gessle makes the offical song for LIEBHERR World Table Tennis Championship in Halmstad. Halmstad native Per Gessle, with a track record of 80 million albums sold worldwide, is supporting the World Table Tennis Championship in Halmstad with a song composed especially for the event that will be seen by 350 million viewers all over the world. Over 100 nations from all corners of the globe will visit the coastal city when the LIEBHERR World Team Table Tennis Championships descends upon Halmstad Arena between April 29th and May 6th 2018. On top of experiencing world class table tennis, visitors will also be able to enjoy world famous artist Per Gessle's music, as he is behind the official WTTC-song "Name You Beautiful", performed together with Helena Josefsson. – When I was asked to write the official song for the tournament I didn’t hesitate. I was really up for the challenge. I wrote ittogether with some other local Halmstad-musicians, namely the guys from Galavant (Sebastian Atas and Victor Sjöström). Their super talented friend Viktor Broberg also contributed. We had lots of fun, says Gessle in a statement, adding: – The song isn't really a net ball, more like a killer smash in the backhand corner! Johnny Ewerstein, project manager of the 2018 WTTC, is happy and pleased that Gessle chose to contribute a song to Sweden's biggest sporting event 2018: – This is absolutely fantastic! Gessle is a world renowned artist, and the fact that he stems from Halmstad makes it all the more special and an honor for us as hosts. We're very glad and grateful for this song, which fits in excellently with a sporting event of this scope and importance. The WTTC-song will be played publicly for the first time during the European Championships qualification match between Sweden and Denmark. The game is played in Halmstad Arena on February 27th at 18.30. Entry is free of charge, so don't miss this opportunity to combine world-class table tennis with a brand new song from Per Gessle. The song will soon be available on Spotify and iTunes.

Today in 1999 Have a Nice Day was released. To this day still a good album, maybe a little before its time? Would be nice to finally get this concert from Stockholm on DVD!
