Roxette to have 10 acoustic concerts in September, new album in March

Roxette is going to have a 10-concert promotional tour in the USA next month. The tour begins with acoustic concerts at MixFest, Boston on September 23 and at Virgin Megastore, New York on September 27. After that, the band will perform live in eight different cities, e.g. Los Angeles, Seattle and Minneapolis. There has also been negotiations on visiting the popular NBC talk show "Tonight with Jay Leno".

Roxette's US comeback single "Wish I Could Fly" has received praising reviews in American media. "I don't think we've ever had so exuberant reception before," says Per. "Wish I Could Fly" will be included on their revised greatest hits album, "Don't Bore Us — Get To The Chorus!".

The rapid changes in Roxette's US situation has forced them to postpone the release of new material. According to Per, 3/4 of the album is already finished. The band is still working on the album and it is due in March 2001.
