  1. welcome:) wednesday is fully devoted to Tourism (not the album, but the real one)… the guy from the news report is a press officer of the show promoters, he said that tomorrow they want to take Roxette across the best sites of the city, and wherever else they would want

  2. http://www.segodnya.ua/news/14224178.html

    Another article I’m working on with Google Translator: “With regard to furniture and edible stuffing grimerok, requests Per and Marie – are the same. Should be growth mirrors, sofas, bath accessories (for example, 40 large towels), table, chairs, carpeting, fresh flowers. On the table: 10 kinds of mineral water, coffee, tea, milk, honey, sugar, cream, cheese and fruit slicing, bread, ice and ginger. From alcohol, Per and Marie asked for 4 bottles of champagne (Veuve Clicquot, “Laurent-Perrier, etc.) and a bottle of red and white wine. But musicians have ordered three boxes of beer (the Netherlands’ Heineken or Mexican “Corona”), a couple of bottles of white wine and 10 bottles of energy.”

    Could someone who can russian make a better translation:
    “In the rider duo is written: “if bodigardy will apply to the audience because, rude, or not to dance in the aisles, they can and do refuse to act.” And if the head of the guard does not know English, and then provide an interpreter.”

  3. I can help with translation))

    Roxette comes in a group of 12 to 16 people and will reside in Radisson hotel. There are two double suite rooms reserved for Per and Marie (around $1000 each).

    Similar tastes:
    As for the furniture and food in green rooms, Per and Marie had similar requests, namely: life size mirrors, sofas, bathing accessories (e.g. 40 large towels), a table, chairs, a carpet, natural flowers. On the table: 10 types of mineral water, coffee, tea, milk, honey, sugar, cream, cut cheese and fruits, breads, ice, ginger.

    Alcohol:
    Per and Marie requested 4 bottles of champagne for each of them (Veuve Clicquot, Laurent Perrier, etc.), one bottle of red wine and one bottle of white wine for each. Members of the band ordered 3 boxes of beer (either Heineken or Corona), a couple bottles of white wine and 10 bottles of energy drinks.
    Roxette will eat in various restaurants with European cuisine. Menu should include several types of soups (vegetable, chicken, seafoods), fried potatoes, dishes with turkey, ham, salads with tuna, chicken, various cereals, grape, strawberry, melon, peanut oil). Table-cloth, glass dishes, spoons and sticks for mixing are also to be provided.

    “NORMAL” SECURITY REQUIRED. Roxette comes with its own equipment. Receiving party has to offer “6 physically fit over 18 years old vanmen” and “guarded parking lot for 14 meter long truck and 12 meter long bus”. Additionally, the band’s management requested addresses of nearby laundries, 4 doctors and several fit security guards, which should be “normal”. The duo’s rider sets out the following: “should bodyguards apply force towards the fans, be rude, or prevent people from dancing between the seats, band members may stop the show”. In case head of security doesn’t know English, an interpreter shall be provided.

  4. Hehe, this kind of reports are strangely entertaining. So they demand chairs and a carpet. 😛

    I guess much of the article just lists the standard equipment of the hotel rooms plus some things that will be in any touring contract. Highly doubt that they demand 10 different sorts of water, looks rather like a premium choice by the hotel.

    But this is a nice one: “should bodyguards apply force towards the fans, be rude, or prevent people from dancing between the seats, band members may stop the show”. 😉

    • yeah, would have been weird if a hotel room had no chairs, that’s a tough call haha

  5. I can add from myself that in the News report No.2 a reporter enters the room per/marie will live in and interviews a hotel worker… when asked about “anything unusual” demanded by the duo, the hotel girl said that “it is peculiar that Marie and her husband will live in separate rooms, not in the same two-bed room”

    those are all the details for tonight i guess lol

    • well, actually she wasn’t referring to Per if that’s what you thought… Mary’s husband is also on the tour, at least he was in Kazan at the first show if you look at the pictures

  6. Yes I know her husband Mike also on the tour and Per’s wife Asa as well. Was the girl referring to Mike? the couple really sleep separately? what about Per and Asa…:)

  7. I think the girl has misinterpreted who is who in the Rox gang. I think Micke has left back home with their kids who has to go back to school. I remember Marie said her family will be on tour only the first week (the winter holiday week).

  8. Ok that makes more sense…I still think there are A LOT of people who think Per & Marie are married! (for crying out loud). I can’t imagine Marie & Micke not together when they are in the same Hotel. It’s interesting to see that Roxette only require basics and I mean real basics from Hotels. I know there are superstars who were soo demanding when they toured in South Africa a while back. For instance Michael Jackson….you were not allowed to look him in the eye and you were not allowed to talk to him until he talks to you!! Then there are others that demand the best of the best rooms with personal butlers etc etc. I am so glad Per & Marie are two down to earth people who appreciate the best things in life 🙂

    • I always thought we are lucky to be fans of “normal” artists, or to have “normal” artists as “idols”..

      No drugs, no scandals, no weird things, just their music.. and they are even nice and rather accessible. (Ok, Per is a bit on the luxury side with his cars, but hey, everyone has a hobby and if he can afford it, why not)

  9. And the beginning of LTYH that’s missing in the previous one 🙂 this time from Gajdut:

    The only downside of the show was the most stupid scheme of fan zones/seats i ever encountered at a music show (including at this same venue). The seating places occupied the vast majority of the whole territory, fan zones being pushed to the very outskirts on the sides and behind the seating area. I was in the latter one so the stage seemed to be miles from me! Anyway, by the end of the show there was not a single sitting person in that vast “VIP area”, the atmosphere became really great. Sound quality was very good as for me, Marie only messed the lyrics of IMHBL i think, but most songs were sang well, and musicians were in form. Hope next time (and i really hope there will be a “next time”) fan zones will be allowed closer to the stage.
    Totally enjoyed the show! Thank you Roxette!

  11. Marie’s vOice is really getting better and better. I’m so happy for her :))
    Btw, I prefer Malin as backing vocal than Helena, the sound much more better and Malin’s voice fits Marie’s voice. As for Helena that her voice is too soft…
    Well, that’s my personal taste :))

  12. added some videos by another user, Dangerous is nice to see – Malin and Marie are funny 🙂
    And “The End” is cute too 🙂

  13. Here is still SGNO more from the beginning plus a little bit of Perfect Day though the quality is very poor; but what an introduction from Per in SGNO! 🙂

  14. it’s a pity there’s no video of The Look so far, I think it was the peak moment when the crowd went wild…. and personally for me 7twenty7 was also the highlight moment, I simply love the live version of this song… so “electronic dance pop” it sounds on the album, and so guitar and drum based heavy it is played live

  15. Yea, let’s hope there is still more to come.
    Meanwhile a good complete version of IMHBL from Rec2play 🙂

  16. Woow! <3 Marie and Malin dancing in the end of DFS!!! And in the middle of Dangerous too. Hope she and Helena will do the same.

    Yes, Malin fits better with Marie's voice, Helena Per's. I like Helena, but if I had to choose which one I'd take to the Roxette tour, I'd choose Malin.

    • I also think Malin fits Rox a lot better, I saw her the first time in Leif’s Lounge and it felt like she had been with Rox for ever.. too bad she is not doing more shows :/
