Roxette Diaries: Egmond’s take

It doesn’t help that 2016 is a special milestone in the lives of Per, Marie and the massive legion of Roxers that loved them since 1986, or in most cases, 1989. Either way, after absorbing the Roxette Diaries (may I add VOLUME 1 since by the end of this review you’ll be demanding VOLUME 2…) mere days after its international release, it’s time to sit back and review it properly.

TDR: The Durban Report!

DURBAN - What a night! Certainly one to remember and one to note in the Roxette history books as a celebration of Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle's 30 year career as Roxette. Read the full story...


Roxette rock the Ticketpro Dome

JOHANNESBURG - For me, seeing a Roxette concert in Johannesburg has been a long time coming. I was 9 years old when the Crash! Boom! Bang! tour stopped at Ellis Park Stadium, and for obvious reasons I was not allowed to go. Read the full story...


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. Read the full story...


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. Read the full story...


Sjöhistoriska: It’s where the water flows…

STOCKHOLM – “Shattered by rain", Marie sang during Roxette's epic ballad “Crash! Boom! Bang!”, while the drops were dancing wildly in the glow of the stage lights. In fact, the heavy rain did not destroy anything that night. Read the full story...


Roxette at home

HALMSTAD - Between the organization of the fans at the gate and the tight security, no one needed to or was allowed to run to the front row. For the most part, everything was very calm and orderly. Big relief. Read the full story...


London Baby! – RoXXXette @ The O2.

LONDON - My Roxette History: In brief, it's my 4th ever Roxette concert despite being a fan since 1988. My Parents thought me to young to attend the Joyride or indeed Crash! Boom! Bang! World Tours when they hit the UK back in the early nineties. I don't think I ever forgave them for that. I've followed them since 1988 and have amassed a Roxette Collection to be proud of. My latest item being the rare French "Fading Like A Flower" CD Single with the Black Cover. Love it! Read the full story...


Roxette – live at Sunset

ZURICH – There I was standing. With my hands placed on the edge of the stage, lowering my head in order to relax my neck for a moment, asking me what has just happened in the last 100 minutes. Read the full story...


Roxette blasts Piazza Grande to bits

LOCARNO - What can I say?? God bless Switzerland! But let's start from the beginning, yes, I mean the beginning for me. Even though I have been a fan for so many years, Locarno has a special place in my heart because it's the place where my dream of seeing Roxette live became true for the first time in 2011.

Roxette hits Bad Kissingen

BAD KISSINGEN - Dear fellow Roxette fans, today while trying to escape the heat, I thought a lot about what to write in this review about Roxette’s visit to Bad Kissingen. And believe me, it wasn’t easy to find the right words. Read the full story...

Roxette in Warsaw is always something special but this time Polish fans made sure this evening will be remembered by the band, too. Read the full story...


Good Reporter checking in from Antwerp

ANTWERP - Usually I write concerts experiences for myself and of course in my native tongue. But sometimes you have to do something different, right? Read the full story...


Good Reporter in Paris

PARIS - Roxette back in France 23 years later. In 1992, I was 12. Definitely too young to drive a car and go to see Roxette live at Le Zénith (I live in south of France, in Marseilles) for the join the joyride summer tour. Read the full story...

Good reporter: Magic nights in Prague

PRAGUE - As you know, on FB, there is a platform for talking about tour plans, tickets, meetings etc. On this platform, a fan from Russia, Anya, has posted an idea about meeting the Rox fans before the Prague show. First we had this idea to meet in a pizzeria and have a chat together.. BUT.... Read the full story...

Good Reporter reports in: Milan

MILAN - I clearly remember the big big surprise I got when I discovered Roxette would play in my country during the European leg of their XXX tour, I could not believe what I was reading! Read the full story...


Arena Rox – Valentine’s Day!

Roxette- Perth Arena: February 14 2015 - Marie Fredriksson... A Standing Ovation... Always! Read the full story...


Roxette in Perth

PERTH - one of the most isolated cities in the world. You can fly to another country faster than flying from the east coast to Perth, but Roxette have always visited here when they have toured Australia. Even when Perth was between arenas and they had to play a smaller and not so great venue in 2012, they still came. Perth has often missed out on great bands but never have we missed out on Roxette. Hats off for that. Read the full story...


Roxette – a kiwi perspective

AUCKLAND - I was 12 years old when “The Look” became a hit in New Zealand. It was quite risqué back then and my rather conservative parents would not let me listen to what Dad called ‘jingle jangle’ music, which was basically any form of music that wasn’t classical. Read the full story...


Roxette in Tallinn

TALLINN - November 23, 2014 was a very special day for all Estonian Roxette fans. It was the day there was a Roxette concert in Tallinn. And what a truly wonderful and magical night it was...! Read the full story...


Roxette in Moscow – A night of memories

MOSCOW - The first time I saw Roxette live was November 7, 2001 - the concert in Moscow during their Room Service tour. I remember only bits and pieces of that show but some of them, especially what I had felt and thought, I remember very well. I still remember Marie running and jumping on the stage.

Roxette in St Petersburg

ST PETERSBURG - Good day to all of you, Roxette Fans! I have just come home from one of the most amazing concerts I’ve ever been to. Today Roxette had a gig in St Petersburg - and I can say that the band was in top shape! Gessle was confident and super active, and Marie was radiant. But first things first! Read the full story...


Roxette in Krasnodar

KRASNODAR - The hall was packed to the limit. We were about 5000 people I believe. The scene was very high and not prepared for the press since between the orchestra pit and the stage there was a column and which could have been removed easily. Read the full story...


Roxette in Rostov-on-Don

ROSTOV-ON-DON November 14 there was a Roxette concert here in Rostov-on-Don! For me personally it was a great event; Rostov - my hometown!! I have waited for Roxette for 20 years! Read the full story...


Roxette in Ekaterinburg

EKATERINBURG – First of all, the set list was full, not shortened as in Novosibirsk. Read the full story...


Roxette in Novosibirsk

NOVOSIBIRSK – I haven’t been to many Roxette concerts; this was the 5th one for me, and I think the most intimate one. Read the full story...
