Report on Euromaxx about the Per Gessle's Roxette tour. (In English, skip to 9:00 in the video.)


Euromaxx - Lifestyle Europe | DW | 01.08.2018

Island dreams: a trip to the Lesser Antilles, Caribbean islands with a European flair. Plus: Roxette singer Per Gessle gets ready for a solo tour. And: beauty with a difference, a photo series about imperfect people.

One of my favs. Couldn't really nail it in the studio with that Party Crasher-vibe. Couldn't really nail it with Marie for Charm School either. Next time = third time lucky? /P.


I'm glad you called

Per Gessle’s Top9 songs from the 90’s

This program is from more than a year ago, but last summer there was a heavy Per Gessle solo tour, so I didn’t have the time to sit down and summarize Gessles nio i topp in English. Now I feel like I need to practice my Swedish, so why not listening to these enthusiastic PG ... Read more

Journalist Olle Berggren met Per Gessle and asked him about his duet with Nick Lowe, “Small Town Talk”. Per says it's a dream come true. He sent an e-mail to Nick and suddenly he was in a studio in Stockholm and sang “Small Town Talk”. They recorded the song and at night he sat at Per’s home and drank whiskey and told all the amazing stories from the 70's London. It was a fantastic evening. Not long after, Nick invited Per and Åsa to London, where they celebrated “Nick Lowe, 50 years as an entertainer” at a famous London pub. Per says he has loved Nick since he started with Gyllene Tider. /PP The album is out on 7th September: http://roxetteblog.com/2018/06/25/per-gessle-small-town-talk-album-release/ Selfie by Per Gessle: https://www.instagram.com/p/BbM2fiOnt_g
