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

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."

The third review in the UK. They are all very very similar.


IT'S FRIDAY MUSIC: Paul McCartney gets back to doing what he does best

Egypt Station arrives five years after his last studio effort, the uneven New. That was made with a disparate crew of hip young gunslingers, including Mark Ronson.

Martin Stjernhufvud's new single. (The other Ma in MaMa's barn, remember?). The song is produced and almost entirely performed by MP Persson.

Stevo analyzes Small Town Talk, or rather the nexus of the three albums.


"It Came Too Fast"... but perhaps not soon enough?

It's taken a long, very long time, but finally, we have been exposed to a different side of Per Gessle.

A new video is out...

Small Town Talk - the review

Well, what can be said about this album. The sleeve is nice with a shot of Per, in a Stetson in front of a DeSoto, taken by Anton Corbijn in Nashville last year.

Review coming up at midnight! Be there!


Here it is again.


Per Gessle

ROXETTE CELEBRATES CHART-TOPPING HEYDAY WITH TWO NEW BOX SETS 5th OCTOBER 2018 With more than 80 millions records sold, four US number 1 singles and numerous Top 40 hits, Roxette are Sweden’s biggest music export after Abba. Hitting the big time with US #1 single “The Look”, taken from their second album “Look Sharp!”, singer Marie Fredriksson and songwriter Per Gessle found themselves rapidly going from local Swedish heroes to global chart-toppers in the spring of 1989. “It was a mind-blowing sound—exactly the kind of updated turbo-pop I had been looking for. The future looked so bright we had to wear shades.” Per Gessle Two new box sets document this unique Scandinavian success story. “Boxette” brings Roxette’s stage dynamic back. “Boxette” is a four DVD collection of five live shows, spanning from 1988 to 2001. It covers concert footage from the two tours following the release of “Look Sharp!” in 1988 and 1989, as well as material from later world tours – “Live-Ism” from Sydney 1991 and “Crash! Boom! Live!” from Johannesburg in 1995. Finally there is a live concert recorded on the final leg of the bands “Room Service” tour in November 2001, which was streamed back in the days — but has now been remastered and released for the first time on DVD. “Boxette” will also features a booklet with unique pictures and interviews with former band members. Look Sharp! The 30th anniversary edition celebrates a milestone album. “Look Sharp!” contained two US number 1 singles “The Look” and “Listen To Your Heart”, along with the high-charting singles “Dangerous” (#2) and “Dressed For Success” (#14). Lavishly packaged in a classic LP sized box with the original album on 180g vinyl, a 21-track CD with Per Gessle’s demos and rarities, as well as Per’s 45 minute long “home movie” DVD, taking fans behind the scenes and into the studio work. A richly illustrated booklet, featuring track by track interviews with Per Gessle, Marie Fredriksson, Clarence Ofwerman, Anders Herrlin, Mats “MP” Persson and Alar Suurna, which offers insight and memories from the recordings is the icing on the sharp looking cake. ”Boxette” and ”Look Sharp! 30th Anniversary Edition” will be released in a limited edition 5th October. There will also be two related ”Look Sharp!” products released simultaneously with the box set; the original LP in limited edition red vinyl and a 2-CD package in digisleeve with the original album and the ”Look Sharp!” demos. / Team PG

Expressen: Did you feel that Roxette died when Marie quit? Per: I can't say that Roxette died, because the classic Roxette with Marie lives on because you hear the songs all the time, but that was an end because it was a heavy mark she made not to tour anymore. That she said it will not work to record more songs. And I also felt that during the last album, "Good Karma", that there was a limit to what she could sing. It was a choice she made. The voice didn'It carry anymore, it could not express the songs the way she wanted. Of course it was sad. What the hell...

The date and the venue of Per's Finland concert are changing. The new venue is Kulttuuritalo in Helsinki, and the concert date is pushed back until November 12. The new location is significantly smaller than the originally booked Metro Areena.

Hmm or hmmmmmmm? We say mesmerizing and what say you?

Today in 2015 Roxette played Stockholm in 13° C and pouring rain. One of the last Swedish concerts ever.


Yes this is real. Basically the LaserDiscs transformed. Unsure about the Look Sharp '89, if it's the VHS or not. The Room Service concert is from the webcast. Hopefully they've found a master at the phone company.

Roxette - Things Will Never be the Same (live 1992) - www.dailyroxette.com

Specially recorded for MTV at Cirkus in Stockholm, Sweden June 1992.

For you afficionados out there.

She greeted the morning sun All the seagulls were flying low and she She started her daily routine Without thinking without knowing She smiled when she thought of Jim All the satellites were standing by and she She hoped she could tune him in When she closed her eyes Oh her life was good

32 years ago (really!) this little gem came out. You all know the story by now. It was recorded in Swedish under the name Svarta glas, but Per wanted to do something with Marie, so they recorded this. The record sleeve is a cartoon because they wanted to be anonymous...


Roxette - Neverending Love

Music video by Roxette performing Neverending Love (Video).

Sweden-England at 4. #bästnärdetgäller När vi träffades i vimlet Det var ett hat trick att minnas jag kom från farmarlaget Du var populär Du sa du älskade fotboll Jag såg en sol igenom fönstret hur kan man låtsas att det regnar när du ser ut så där? Vi är bäst när det gäller Vi är bäst när det gäller Vi är bäst då när allt står på spel vi är bäst då när allt kan gå fel Liksom dårar på nätet Gillar vi ringarna på vattnet Vi vill att världen ska få veta Vår karaktär (eller vad säger du, Per?) Att aldrig tappa kontrollen Att aldrig ta nåt med en klackspark är aldrig tvåa på bollen När du ser på mej så där Vi är bäst när det gäller Vi är bäst när det gäller Vi är bäst då när allt står på spel vi är bäst då när allt kan gå fel
