“XXX – The Daily Roxette Show”: Tour continues at Hotel Tylösand

+++ The following story was our April Fools Joke for 2016. No word of it is true, except that Pelle likes shorts. +++
The Daily Roxette goes on tour. Well, sort of. As we have heard from a source close to the management, Roxette will continue their XXX tour even after the already announced summer dates. The plan is to stay in Sweden for a couple of months in 2017, the shows will be placed in Per Gessle’s Hotel Tylösand in Halmstad and the title will be… drum roll… “The Daily Roxette show”. Time to ask The Man a couple of questions…

Warsaw – the awkward front row review

WARSAW – It all begins… Imagine: it’s early July, you are just back from a few concerts and some holidays, googling “Roxette Warszawa” (as the concert in the Torwar Hall, Warsaw, happened less than two weeks ago) and among reviews and photos you find an information that Roxette will cross your country again, just in a couple of weeks. Wow.

Elvefestival: One more time, Europe!

DRAMMEN – Roxers like to call this the Neverending Tour, of course with a twinkle in the eye. For me, besides its fun aspect, the expression also represents a very powerful idea, a mighty thought which, among others, strengthens us in our fan-being, a beautiful scenario filled with love and dedication.

Rox in Drammen, part 1

DRAMMEN – When you write a review about a concert which closes a tour it is easy to get a bit nostalgic, but I don’t want mine to be so, and I prefer to fill my words just with positivity, gratefulness and passion, which is what I honestly feel at the end of Roxette’s European tour.
