Gold for Roxette in Cologne!

The Swedish superstars Roxette now added another trophy to their phenomenal career as part of the successful tour in Germany: The comeback album “Charm School”, released by EMI Music Germany and Starwatch Entertainment that managed to hit directly the first place of the German charts in February, sold over 100,000 copies since then. Last Thursday Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle received the Gold awards in the eve of the Cologne concert. The popularity of the Swedish duo within the German fans is visible in the impressive chart success of the latest album as well as the top ten hit “She’s Got Nothing On (But The Radio)”.

Uli Mücke, Vice President New Music of EMI Music Germany, is delighted: “We are very happy about this successful comeback of the sympathetic Swedes, with whom collaboration is simply fun. Moreover the journey of this album is still far from over.” Hans Fink, CEO of Star Watch Entertainment, adds: “I am very pleased for Marie and Per. “Charm School” is a fantastic album. It’s great that the German fans are as excited about it as we are. Congratulations!” After the sold-out Open-air concerts in June Roxette will continue with a large arena tour in October 2011.

  1. Congratulations!!

    The picture is fantastic, they seem to be very happy!!

    Of course, they are in Cologne, he, he… 😉

    Even if it’s “just” 100.000 copies (I know, we had this discussion already), it’s a great success!!

  2. So well deserved! Jolentis, the gold certification stands for the same success as 250,000 in the 90s. Market changed…

    I’d like to see the “official” photo, where they all look at! Probably in a coming press release. 🙂

  3. Where do they all look at? Is there another photographer lying down ? ;D Lovely pic!! And yeehaaa!!!

  4. Nice pic, but a little bit blurred and why nobody’s looking to the camera? And who’s who in the back row? I recognize only Marie Dinberg in the middle.

    I think that Chris and Clarence should be sitting on the sofa too…

  5. Sascha, can you please translate the press release? I know there are some quotes and would like to know who the people on the picture are. Thanks

  6. WO missed the charts in it’s first possible week. Totally absent of the download charts, too weak in the CD sales.

    I guess they didn’t attract any new consumers with this. Roxette fans already have the album and there’s no attractive b-side package (you can buy CBB/A on it’s own). Radio isn’t in love either. There are TV spots though.

    Great album starter, good live song, bad single choice. :/
