I asked Per on Twitter yesterday if we could know the songs that were played before the concert from his pre-mix tape, as there were a few I spotted being British and growing up in a world of 60’s music (mostly Northern my Dad hailing from Liverpool!)… and the list appeared late last night, so hear it is!

As you’ll notice there is a fair few 60’s and 70’s artist’s in there, some classic music pops by fab four from Liverpool The Beatles and then we have The Kinks, Dusty Springfield, The Supremes and the fab George Harrison plus some tracks from the fabulous Swedish group The Mascots which many will be well-known with from the En Händig Man tour pre video warm up! There is of course some modern day artists as well like Smashing Pumpkins, Crash Test Dummies, Pet Shop Boys, Nisse Hellberg and even Per’s Shopping With Mother makes the list!

All in all a great warm up to Roxette appearing on stage, a fantastic collection of songs and certainly one to remember the show by! You can go have most of them now over at Spotify…

*) not on Spotify… so I suggest you head over to faithful iTunes and purchase what you are missing there!
