Together we crashed the party!

Roxette is back – thoughts and feelings.

I (Judith) have had different thoughts in my mind since mid April. And I’m going to try to write them down.

I (Kirsten) started spending too much time in front of my computer while other things need to be done. At the moment there’s only one reason for it: the return of Roxette.

It was April 18th when I was so bored that I started to play with Google. Some minutes earlier I had read Per’s comment on Twitter which was like: “I wish I could tell you”. He was asked about his plans for the fall. I knew something great was about to come but I couldn’t imagine what. So there I was, sitting in front of my computer, looking at Google and typing: “Nokia Night of the Proms 2009”, Roxette and got a result. I couldn’t believe my eyes, but posted it in our forum. Somethin deep inside of me finally said “hello” again. It wasn’t very loud but there it was again.

“Roxette, come back? Dream?” When the German fans found out about the possible participation of Roxette in NOTP I just thought “yeah, then we’ll just buy tickets for it, it will be cool!”. Kind of a normal reaction. By then I thought one show would be enough. Some people bought tickets already when this was revealed, I thought “let’s wait and see, maybe it isn’t true in the end?”. But my friend Kirsten kept saying she was sure. Actually I must say now, I was also sure, but for some reason I didn’t want to believe it yet. Or some hidden part of my brain.heart didn’t want to hope and then be disappointed.


Press writing about the Amsterdam surprise

Especially Swedish press published some nice articles about last night’s big surprise in Amsterdam. Some excerpts: Per about Marie’s reaction afterwards: “She was completely overwhelmed by the response we got. The audience had a big smile on their faces and the whole room had goosebumps”. There’s also rumours about another performance by Marie in Stockholm, […]
