World Tour 2011: Weert, The Netherlands – July 9 #45

Comment from Per Gessle

Oh yeah! BosPop was fab. An honour to share the same stage as Ringo & his pals. Edgar W turned out to be a fan. And thanks to all of you showing up and giving us all your support at this festival. Kinda different for us, we haven’t done that many f-vals throughout the years but it felt really good. Bright sunshine in our eyes, though….. and we thought the midnight sun was way up north….. A great day. Cheers, P&M


Thanks to Sandra Knospe!

From review

The duo opens with ‘Dressed for Success’ and the party called ‘Roxette’ is on. The audience has been in sing-along-mode all weekend and is at its peak during Roxette. Even during Joe Cocker and Ringo Starr there wasn’t as much response as during ‘Wish I could Fly’*. Roxette can relax today, the audience sings for them. Singer/guitarist Per says that ‘7Twenty7’ is his favourite song and you can only agree. A powerful song, but unknown for many. It sticks in your head though and is the most remarkable song next to their greatest hits. The last three songs are the real classics. During ‘Joyride’ balloons appear from the audience and the crowd seems to have a great time still. ‘Listen to your heart’ and ‘The Look’ end the sing-along set of Roxette, a band that should not have missed from the festival.

WICF wasn’t performed this evening 😉


The concert was part of the Bospop Festival. Over 25,000 people attended the festival. Nienke Griffioen informed on Facebook that Marie and Per was just in front of the stage during the Ringo Star concert, which took place just before Roxette’s one. No encore this time and it is the shortest concert on this tour so far. Marie wore “The Beatels” T-shirt during the concert.
