German fans gather together for disco party

BONN – In conjuction with the release of Marie Fredriksson’s album “The Change,” German fans have re-launched a popular online meeting-point, “Planet Roxette,” which sports a new design as well as new content like an extensive multimedia section including, among others, wallpapers, screensavers and games; or a discography section based on Robert Thorselius’ “The Look for Roxette.” The website also hosts a large forum community that celebrated their first “Roxette – The Party Disco” a week ago.

  On the afternoon of October 21st, Roxette fans from all over Germany gathered together at the disco “Saga,” near Bonn, for six hours of partying and dancing to their favorite tunes from Sweden.

The playlist, set up by Kiwein1 and “DJ Banana”, took off with the catchy hooks of the live version of “Crush on You” and included the whole spectrum of Per’s and Marie’s creative powers, both as Roxette, solo artists and Gyllene Tider. It was a very good atmosphere and despite “only” 20 participants, the dancefloor was always active. Some of the highlights of the evening were “The Centre of the Heart,” “Wish I Could Fly – remix,” “All You’ve Gotta Do Is Feel,” “Mellan sommar och höst” (live), “Flickorna på TV 2” (live), “Gå och fiska” (live) and of course “Spegelboll” [see picture].

Another Roxette disco is planned for 2005 and the Germans plan to invite fans from other countries to take part in this party.
“It would be great fun to have an international group of Roxette fans attending this event. It would make it even more special,” explains Claudia to The Daily Roxette.
