  1. Its a shame Silver and Watercolours were taken out, I love those songs. Maybe rearrange the set list so the faster songs are spread out more, there’s 4 in a row at the start for instance. Oh well, its a work in progress no doubt.

    Caleb, the photos are awesome!! Marie looks like she had a blast. Love the out of focus one at the end and the one of the iphone/camera – very pretty.

    The best one is the 3rd last one. It looks like Marie’s throwing out some sunshine/hope to all of us – thankyou!

    I think P&M need to address the lighting though. A few of the shots show them in almost darkness – where’s their follow spot? It’s there in some shots and AWOL in others.

    Love the ‘charm school’ backdrop very cool design.

  2. I think Spending My Time in Kazan concert sound better… Not much of ‘forgotten lyrics’ 😀 😀
    I fell in love with this group specially Marie when I listened to this song for the very first time :-))))

  3. SMT is great!! I love how it sounds live! I thought Marie did better on the lyrics in Samara then Kazan? I love the ending how they all harmonize together sounds great!

  4. Don’t know if this has been posted anywhere, but it’s a kind of mini concert video of the Samara show. It’s pretty good

  5. Just watchin’ the Samara gig. They really rock, I love especially HDYD-Dangerous in this one.

    And yes, Marie is moving around much more than in Kazan. I wonder if it’s because they’ve solved the lyrics problem and she feels more relaxed. Per sings in the microphone in some parts of the songs but the audience won’t hear him. We hear only Marie singing. Check HDYD and LTYH for example. 🙂

  6. That’s a good idea if she can hear him. I know myself I find it easier to sing along to the songs when I can hear them in the background than without them.

    Marie does seem more relaxed, her dancing and energy is amazing – I’d say she’s got her groove back! Look at her move at the start of SIMC – awesome!!!

    Also the audience really got into this show, check out the couple dancing in the stands/bleachers during Perfect Day – how cool!

  7. Above all, the first 2 shows looked great thank to the guys who made and posted the videos.
    But, as far as i see, so far noone seems to talk or be bothered with the fact that in front of the stage there are seated people. When so far it happened like this in a full rox-concert (not to say rox-tour)?? Does anyone have a normal explanation why they chosed to have seated people in front of the stage? I don`t know about other countries but in Romania they have the same (chairs) in front of the stage (although the concert is in open-air, not stadium or big-hall) and the image so far was at least a bit strange with Roxette singing, let`s say, Sleeping in my car and all the people in front of the stage standing down.

    This was in fact the only thing I didn’t like about the gig here in Kazan! It was a terrible feeling to sit when the whole body craved for dancing and jumping! I even inclined to go to Yekaterinburg, ’cause there is going to be a dance floor right in front of the scene. unfortunately, I haven’t managed…

  9. I also think it is foolish to put seats in front of the stage!!! One only puts seats in front of the stage when you go and see a play of some sort! Luckily we have a golden circle spot in front of the stage, then some more standing spots and then only seats at the back and the side of the arena. And I am pretty sure our arena in Cape Town has screens as well!! Roxette feeds of the energy from the audience. Always have! Especially Marie…if the crowd gets going then Marie becomes a total different performer!! 🙂

  10. I haven’t watched all the vids yet – but what song does Marie play the tambourine!?! 😀

  11. Just watched the Dressed/Sleeping vid…Marie kicks %#@
    She’s my hero…
