ROXETTE CELEBRATES CHART-TOPPING HEYDAY WITH TWO NEW BOX SETS 5th OCTOBER 2018 With more than 80 millions records sold, four US number 1 singles and numerous Top 40 hits, Roxette are Sweden’s biggest music export after Abba. Hitting the big time with US #1 single “The Look”, taken from their second album “Look Sharp!”, singer Marie Fredriksson and songwriter Per Gessle found themselves rapidly going from local Swedish heroes to global chart-toppers in the spring of 1989. “It was a mind-blowing sound—exactly the kind of updated turbo-pop I had been looking for. The future looked so bright we had to wear shades.” Per Gessle Two new box sets document this unique Scandinavian success story. “Boxette” brings Roxette’s stage dynamic back. “Boxette” is a four DVD collection of five live shows, spanning from 1988 to 2001. It covers concert footage from the two tours following the release of “Look Sharp!” in 1988 and 1989, as well as material from later world tours – “Live-Ism” from Sydney 1991 and “Crash! Boom! Live!” from Johannesburg in 1995. Finally there is a live concert recorded on the final leg of the bands “Room Service” tour in November 2001, which was streamed back in the days — but has now been remastered and released for the first time on DVD. “Boxette” will also features a booklet with unique pictures and interviews with former band members. Look Sharp! The 30th anniversary edition celebrates a milestone album. “Look Sharp!” contained two US number 1 singles “The Look” and “Listen To Your Heart”, along with the high-charting singles “Dangerous” (#2) and “Dressed For Success” (#14). Lavishly packaged in a classic LP sized box with the original album on 180g vinyl, a 21-track CD with Per Gessle’s demos and rarities, as well as Per’s 45 minute long “home movie” DVD, taking fans behind the scenes and into the studio work. A richly illustrated booklet, featuring track by track interviews with Per Gessle, Marie Fredriksson, Clarence Ofwerman, Anders Herrlin, Mats “MP” Persson and Alar Suurna, which offers insight and memories from the recordings is the icing on the sharp looking cake. ”Boxette” and ”Look Sharp! 30th Anniversary Edition” will be released in a limited edition 5th October. There will also be two related ”Look Sharp!” products released simultaneously with the box set; the original LP in limited edition red vinyl and a 2-CD package in digisleeve with the original album and the ”Look Sharp!” demos. / Team PG

Expressen: Did you feel that Roxette died when Marie quit? Per: I can't say that Roxette died, because the classic Roxette with Marie lives on because you hear the songs all the time, but that was an end because it was a heavy mark she made not to tour anymore. That she said it will not work to record more songs. And I also felt that during the last album, "Good Karma", that there was a limit to what she could sing. It was a choice she made. The voice didn'It carry anymore, it could not express the songs the way she wanted. Of course it was sad. What the hell...

"I'm actually naive enough still to think that there is a certain type of romance around being on tour. I always liked touring. When you are in front of all these people and they are singing my songs, there is nothing better in the world. I won't stop." 🎶💖 If you haven't watched the live interview with Per Gessle yet, you should. Qs were asked by Russian fans. /PP Stills are from the interview: https://vk.com/video-4921329_456239222

The date and the venue of Per's Finland concert are changing. The new venue is Kulttuuritalo in Helsinki, and the concert date is pushed back until November 12. The new location is significantly smaller than the originally booked Metro Areena.

"Sweden-based Mono Mind starts at No. 39 on Dance/Mix Show Airplay with 'LaLaLove,' the conglomerate’s third chart hit. The act, described on its website as 'a musical laboratory where everything is possible,' scored a No. 2 peak on the Nov. 11, 2017 chart with 'Save Me a Place' and reached No. 15 on April 21, 2018 with 'I Found My Soul at Marvingate.'" https://www.billboard.com/charts/hot-dance-airplay https://www.billboard.com/charts/dance-club-play-songs

Patricia's right again! The facts are actually true. Love this song! /P.

DID YOU KNOW? 🤔🎶 ”Being With You” was originally written in 1997 for Roxette’s ”Have A Nice Day” album, but never made it. Per recorded the original demo on 11 September 1997 with an additional verse, which he later cut out in the acoustic demo recorded on 22 October 2004. It was during the ”Son Of A Plumber” session. He considered including it, but it never happened for some reason. Per just let it go, because he had so many other songs, as always. Now, in 2018, 21 years after the song was born it got another chance and is finally released as a single and will be on Mr. G’s upcoming album, ”Small Town Talk”. Good decision, isn't it? ✌ /PP Listen to the BWY demos and the 2018 single here: http://bit.ly/PG_BWY_1997_Spotify http://bit.ly/PG_BWY_2004_Spotify http://bit.ly/PG_BWY_Spotify
