As the German fansite Planet Roxette reported more than a week ago it’s possible that Roxette join the “Nokia Night of the Proms”, a tour including The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany with a big orchestra, as the top act. Hidden information in the source code of a NOTP-fanpage spreaded the rumour that Roxette would be the headliner of this year’s event after they had to cancel the show due to Marie’s illness in 2002.
The “wrong” source code disappeared after fans told the administrators about it. “The formerly hidden part in the source code wasn’t meant to be there and it’s just pure speculation. We don’t know the headliner of NOTP”, they explained to Planet Roxette. This explanation doesn’t really makes sense since they planned to do a competition about the possible artists first and wanted to give one information a day regarding all artists. The competition was cancelled due to “hysteria among some fan groups”. So the question is where they would have gotten their information from?
On May 5th all artists who join NOTP this year will be announced in a press conference in Antwerpen. The fact that Per Gessle is performing in Amsterdam only one night later and the rumour (spreaded by Clarence Öfwerman and Christoffer Lundquist) that the Amsterdam show is going to be a very special one let us think that both Per and Marie could attend not only the press conference in Antwerpen but also do – at least some – songs in Amsterdam together. And only a few hours ago some Belgian NOTP fans found out that the headliner of this year’s event has: “….sold more than 55 million albums and singles and had at least eight top-10-hits”. Unfortunately it’s not certain which country is meant concerning the top-10-hits, but Roxette indeed had eight songs that reached the top-10-spot in Germany.
