Roxette will be on tour until August 2012; 80 shows to go

Per Gessle reveals in an interview with Hallands Posten that “after Göteborg [concert #50], we still have 80 concerts to go” and that the tour will go on until August 2012. “As soon as we leave a city, the tour promoter wants to book us again, which is the best feedback one can get,” says Per to Jan-Owe Wikström.

Per also comments on the success of “She’s Got Nothing On (But the Radio)” on the radio, “We’ve never been played on the radio as much as now. And it is specially thanks to Latin America, Russia and Eastern Europe, where we are very successful.”

Per also thinks that Marie is in a great shape. “Last week in Locarno was the best I’ve seen of her since, hmm, the ’90s,” says Per.

As we know, the band is working on a new album, which carries the working title of “2rism”. They have already recorded 5 songs and have booked more studios around the world to record some more.
