Roxette visits Helsinki

HELSINKI – Per and Marie were here in Finland today to promote their new album and The Daily Roxette was in the center of the action.

  The band had a very tight schedule. They arrived around 11am, held a press conference at 2pm, ate lunch after that, and then had a brief meet & greet with fans at 3:30pm. A live performance was recorded at 5pm and, after that, they rushed to the airport for a flight back to Sweden.

  The band was supposed to have done a live interview for TV-show Jyrki (a daily music program broadcast live), but because they were running late, the interview had to be cancelled at the last minute.

  Roxette was backed by Clarence Öfwerman on keyboards, Pelle Alsing on drums and Christoffer Lundquist on the bass. Per played the guitar. They also had a Finnish string section of four people. They played “The Centre Of The Heart” (twice), “Milk And Toast And Honey”, “Wish I Could Fly” and “Real Sugar”.
