Roxette to perform at Virgin Times Square

The U.S. release of Roxette's greatest hits album will be launched at the Virgin Megastore in Times Square, New York, on Wednesday, September 27, and the record label, along with Per and Marie, want you to be there.

Roxette will make an in-store appearance and perform several songs from the CD, "Don't Bore Us… Get To The Chorus," including "Wish I Could Fly" which is currently being played on scores of American radio stations, with more being added every week.

Marie and Per will be arriving in New York from Boston following their appearance at MixFest on the previous Saturday.

Directly across the street from Virgin is the Viacom building, home of both MTV and VH1. The U.S. RoxAttaq, with the support of fans around-the-world, has been trying to get the "Wish.." video to be shown on these networks. According to Edel America (EAR), the RoxAttaq is having an effect, with VH1 in particular showing interest now. An EAR spokesperson said "We're so happy with the support the fans have been giving us. This RoxAttaq you guys are doing couldn't be more important right now, as we try to get even more radio stations to add 'Wish' to their playlist." EAR hopes to see Times Square overrun with Roxette fans that Wednesday. "We really want the fans to be there," said the spokesperson. "Per and Marie are eager to connect with their American fans again."
