Fanclub helps Romanian fans to see Roxette live
VIENNA - UPDATED In their press release, Official Roxette Fanclub announces that with their help, four Roxette fans from Romania will be able to attend the band's concerts in Vienna on November 1st and 2nd.
The Romanian fans, Mi-Odin Muresan (26), his wife Anca Claudia Muresan (25), Andreea Istoc (20) and Robert Ecsedi (22) have all been dedicated Roxette fans since their breakthrough single "The Look" in 1989. After weeks of work and rejected visa applications, their dream of seeing the band live looks to become true.
"This journey means the world to us. There are many dedicated and true Roxette fans in Romania, and I do hope that they will play there one day," says Mi-Odin Muresan.
Without fanclub's help their journey probably wouldn't have been possible. According to the fanclub, the average Romanian monthly income is only 95 euros (86 USD) and the four fans' visa applications alone cost 180 euros (163 USD).
Update: Stefan Schönhacker (aka alchemiste here in TDR), the Austrian division leader of the Official Roxette Fanclub, points out that the Romanian fans are paying their trips by themselves. The fanclub just helped them with the bureaucracy and visa applications.
