★ The Daily Roxette Archives

24 years today? Wow! Thanx RoxetteBlog for reminding us and the world!

TOURISM was recorded all over the planet during that fab Join the Joyride Tour in 1991-92. It included a few leftovers from “Look Sharp!” + “Joyride” but also brand new stuff like “How Do You Do!”, “Fingertips”, “Keep Me Waiting” + “The Rain” and some live stuff, of course.

The mighty “Queen Of Rain” was supposed to be the finale on the Joyride-LP but was replaced by “Perfect Day” in the last minute since the very talented Vicki Benckert could play the accordion live. What a treat! It made the concerts very special at the time, remember? “Queen Of Rain” became a really wonderful album closer on Tourism instead.

Hi-lites for me were Marie’s stunning vocal performance on “Never Is A Long Time” (recorded in a closed down nightclub in Sao Paulo) + “The Heart Shaped Sea” which sounded really wonderful recorded at the mindblowing Ocean Way Studio in L.A.

Glad we made it.
Cheers, P.
