Gessle reveals upcoming plans in GP interview

GÖTEBORG - "Maybe the concert at Ullevi wasn't our best one, but it had everything else: a complete experience, a fantastic audience. With some distance now, and having monitored the editing of the film, I start realizing… how big that was," Gessle says in an inteview with Göteborgsposten.

  "We've found some old, very funny, odd and unique footage – like from the recordings of Teaser Japanese, for instance," says Gessle. This will be added to the DVD.
The fans don't have to wait until spring. One of the big TV channels will show part of the documentary (about 30 minutes worth) around Christmas/New Year's Eve.

  Asked if there will be a live-CD, Gessle says: "There are different points of views. I think that people would like that, but not everybody owns a DVD-player. Other people say that it's old-fashioned to release a live CD. But hey… we are old. Don't rule it out though."

  Over the last couple of months, Per has followed the work of his Roxette colleague Marie Fredriksson. "Her solo album sounds extremely good. Marie is a fighter. I am glad that she is active again, I know that it means much to her after all this cruelty."
  But he can't say what her comeback means for the future of Roxette. "Marie and I are very good friends. Roxette is our little baby. Nothing is happening at the moment and we will see if something is going to happen in the future."

  Next year will be a quiet one for Per Gessle. "I continue to write songs, but there will be no recordings. I mean, you have to stay away for a while to be missed. So, we will see… maybe a 'Mazarin II' in summer of 2006?"
