Fan stories

Evgeny Perekopskiy – the whole story of Norwegian concert

The gig was wild, the surroundings were wild, the wind was wild, but the fans were wilder. When Roxette started to play ‘How do you do!’ proclaiming it a hit from back in 1992, it started to rain. The rain was so cold and so intense. We had no time to put on raincoats because we didn’t want to waste time on wearing useless raincoats. When Roxette played ‘Dangerous’, it was the rain which was dangerous for our health. But who cared? Marie was wearing a scarf. I don’t think it helped her to keep warm. Per was merely wearing a shirt. I was screaming: ‘Fuck the rain’, some other fans screamed it too. 😉

While Marie, Per and the band played ‘Fading like a flower’, the whole audience screamed: It’s such a cold
cold town! It was damn true… The show was so emotional because we, the fans, supported Roxette as much
as we could. I saw Marie concentrating on Laura’s eyes while Miss Bolyos was singing ‘Silver Blue’. She sang it perfectly, without changing words or forgetting the lines. Even if she did, who cared? Not me.

Trivia

8,000 people in the audiance in a sold-out show. There were no Gessle’s solo tracks this time and no “(I’m not your) Steppin’ stone”. The rain was pouring down during the show and it was quite cold that evening – Marie wore a scarf. After the show people had problems with leaving the venue due to the traffic jam. Only three police cars were on the place.

  1. – 10. Silver blue (in one of the articles called “Kiss me”)

    Funny how they would come up with that as the lyrics doesn’t mention it at all.

  2. Sorry, don’t mean to ‘flood’ the comment sections with mine. I just wish that I didn’t submit mine too fast since I still have something to say 😉

    So, no Per’s song meaning no break for Marie then? So, she was there the whole 17 songs?

    I’ve been looking the pictures, and judging by those, Marie seemed looked more and more confident every concert. I’m very happy for her and proud to be a fan.

    She also looked fantastic, her sense of style seemed got better (or whoever choose the outfit for her). My wish is she would wore more colorful clothes, like she does in RS era. I’d like to see her hair a bit longer like in ATAY. Of course, I AM happy that she’s back no matter what and that’s more important.

  3. If I understand things right they wrote that Marie was freezing on stage and that it was raining but it was great anyway? ?

  4. Majdy, they skipped PG songs on Smukfest and Halmstad gig, so it was the third time when they decided to do so. It seems like they decided it would be better without Per solo tracks. If Marie feels like stanind in over an hour and singing, so it’s really, really great!

  5. @Tomos: Oh, I forgot about Smukfest, but I remember at Halmstad gig, they have Gyllene Tider so it’s like a break for Marie.

  6. Okay, updated with a review, new photos + three links from youtube. After reading the review in Aftenbladet I’m really happy. Though it’s not 5/5 review and the journalist says that Marie’s voice is kind of weak, and some songs are totally unknown, it still says about the whole atmosphere and the feeling of the audiance after the gig (that what I missed about e.g. Skandeborg or sundsvall gigs). All were satisfied and happy to see Roxette and it’s not about nostalgic feeling – great songs made this eveing special

  7. fair reviews, that’s it.. we don’t have to agree, but at least they are not mean and also summarize what audience felt like during/after the show.

  8. Some songs are totally unknown ? Hmm I guess Oppurtunity nox, She doesn’t live here anymore and Silver Blue could fall into this category … (being the last two favorite among the fans). For me it’s quite impressive the number of known songs they play, in most cases when you attend a concert you might know 4-5 songs at the most but here we are talking about 10 Top-10 songs … yeah , well there are some other hits missings but that’s another story

  9. also Txiqui, that FLAF/HDYD/Dangerous clip is my current favourite 11+ mins on youtube 🙂
    thanks for the vids
