Now it would be utterly arrogant for The Daily Roxette to claim ANY credit for the return of “Crush On You” and “Almost Unreal” to the set list! But perhaps the “subtle” hints we dropped during the Ghost Track review of “Crush” and the #crushlive2015 tag played a minor role? And just maybe this TDR “2015 Headlines” article where “Almost Unreal” gets a mention (scroll down to #4) contributed to the return of this ballad? Then again, it could all just be hocus pocus – so forget we ever even mentioned it!
The other question is – what happened to “Fading Like A Flower?”
Finally, enjoy some of the pics we found online from the first show – thanks to Celestte Williams and to all the Roxers for taking these awesome pics! A review is coming shortly.
