  1. This was perhaps the one concert in Europe I would have loved to have been part of as I love Warsaw last time, rather gutted I did not follow my instinct and go, since it would have been a better place to be than WW III I have been partaking in at home 😉

    I am glad to see it went down well, seems like Per and Marie love Warsaw as much as they love them! 🙂

  2. Hmmmm… I get the feeling that Marie is really getting better from show to show and making the new songs (here especially “Only when I dream”) her songs. The ending of “Only when I dream” is just soooo Fredrikssonish (lol). Warsaw seems to have been just another milestole again on a truly magical comeback. As Alison stated above… I also would have loved to have gone there (*sigh*) oh well…! And besides… if one compares Marie’s performance to the first ones in Russia in February, one can see that Marie has improved tremendously since then.

  3. I agree Birger!

    I was watching some YouTube videos from this show & was several times thinking WOW Marie sounds amazing!! Better than any show before I feel. She seemed to be improvising & just more confident in her voice. Her power is really coming back, it’s great to see : ) When I think of the first show in Kazan it’s like night & day!

  4. I have just added amazing Liveshot gallery from the Sunday’s concert.

    There is a nice story of meet&greet on TDR – I would just add that we were squeezed in a small dark corridor and we couldn’t take ANY pictures or film ANYTHING. Only Kai was able to take few pictures with his camera. Life’s not so good.

    • Same here, no pictures from our cameras and just one autograph per person, luckily it was a room with plenty of light. We took some pics to the other groups of fans that were before us but we were the last ones so nobody could capture our moment, in compensation we had more time with P&M…

  5. Wow, these pictures are great: everyone looks so cool (like the pop-rock stars they are), the action is captured and they even look younger:)

  6. 24 years waiting for a moment to hear Roxette live, emotion, tears and joy when it started. Many thanks for every moment with your music, the concert was amazing, and my sore throat and worn hands evoke memories:) thank you once again that you are!
