Per calls Roxette fans “extremely loyal”
COPENHAGEN – It’s a Danish newspaper this time that has published an interview with Per. He was in Denmark on the return leg of his Roxette promo tour.
The journalist starts out the interview by asking Per about the day he found out about Marie’s illness. As reported previously, he was riding in a cab on the way to the airport when his mobile phone rang and he learned the horrible news.
He says that it’s still hard to understand that this is for real and that he thinks of Marie as a sister.
Per also says that Marie was in the studio this week. “It was fantastic to see her being able to work,” says Per. “She did a good job,” he says, “but it will still take many months before she will really know what she wants for the future.”
He went on to say that even if they’ve both given interviews on their own before, it’s still better when they are together. The circumstances make it worse.
“Our fans were very shocked [about the news], but after getting themselves together, they’ve sent thousands of e-mails. Something that Marie thinks highly of”. “Our fans have been amazing. They are extremely loyal. We have a special communication with them,” he says with a smile.
He ends the interview by saying that this is not the end for Roxette.
