PER GESSLE IS THE MAN FROM ROXETTE HIS FIRST INTERNATIONAL SOLO TOUR There are few artists who can measure up to Per GessleÂ’s many successes as an artist and songwriter. Being a frontman and main writer of Roxette, Per has staggering record sales of more than 45 million albums and 25 million singles. The enormous amount of No.1 hits all over the world include no less than 4 US No.1Â’s. This uncrowned king of Swedish pop is still re-inventing himself as a songwriter and performer and the result is his brand new album “Party Crasher” which includes the No.1 single “Silly Really”. After worldwide tours with Roxette and recordbreaking Swedish shows, Per Gessle is now ready to embark on his first European solo-tour, taking his vast legacy of Roxette-songs, the Party Crasher album and his fellow musicians to European clubs. Per GessleÂ’s new band includes three former Roxette musicians; Clarence Öfwerman on keyboards, Pelle Alsing on drums and Christoffer Lundquist on guitar and vocals. Add to these Helena Josefsson on vocals and Magnus Börjesson on bass guitar and you get a sensational line-up. “IÂ’d love to do a tour like this since I havenÂ’t played the club circuit since 1989!!” says Gessle. “The set will be a guitar-based power pop bonanza so me and the band look forward to lots of fun, lots of hits and to perform our new groovy dance moves!” A splendid time is guaranteed for all.
