  1. One little note first: The intro before Joyride was “Auf der Reeperbahn nachts um halb eins”

    Well… this was not my first Roxette concert but I guess it was the best one I have seen so far. I was simply stunned and surprised by the power and energy of Marie’s voice and the professional routine of the entire concert. In Halmstad last year (where I went to as well) everything sounded much more experimental – although it was an amazing show, don’t get me wrong. Perhaps the new backgrounds and the experience gained on the road made this show so energetic. Since I regularly watch the little videos of all the shows I thought I knew quite well what to expect in Hamburg but the real experience (sound, atmosphere in the venue etc.) just blew me away once more. As one German critic wrote about the Berlin concert, Roxette sound much better now than in the past. Per and Marie can still deliver fantastic music and I am damn proud of them!!!

  2. Ahhh and I forgot to mention some observations: I felt that the first highlight of the show was indeed “Perfect Day” (not only for me but for most people in the O2 arena) – and that is so great.
    And having been a fan since 1990 I admit to have never fully realized (until last night, however) how big a hit “How do you do!” was in 92 because this was THE ice-breaker last night that got everyone there stand up (until the end of the concert) and go wild and party.
    In my opinion, Opportunity Nox and 7twenty7 were placed really well in the middle of the show so all in the audice could take a breath for a while and simply see and hear that the band consists of real musicians who can play their instruments. I got the feeling that not too many people knew those two songs. But hey… they did know the other 20 and that is awesome!

  3. You see…. I am still really excited about the concert last night. On my way back home I was wondering whether it would be a good idea to replace Opportunity now by Big black Cadillac ????? What do you think?
