European dates are very slowly showing up (would be nice to get them at once…soon!). According to the Norwegian newspapers Nytt i Uka and Sunnmørsposten, Roxette will be one of the artists to perform at the Jugendfest festival, which will take place in Ålesund’s Color Line Stadium from 16th to 18th of August 2012. “It’s the biggest band we have booked for the Jugendfest for a long time. They have produced big hits during the past 30 years and a lot of people can really relate to them,” says Ante Giskeødegård, the booking manager at Momentium, the company which organises this festival among others to the free newspaper Nytt i Uka.
Other artists which are also confirmed for this festival are the Swedish band Kent, which recently announced a new album and tour for 2012 as well.
Tickets for the festival are already on sale.
Update a few hours later: It looks like Roxette will also be in Norway in July. According to ticketmaster.nl and Billetservice.no a concert is planned on July 14 in Fredriksten Festning in Halden. Tickets go on sale on Friday 16th of December via Billettservice.no.
Update 15 Dec.: And a third date for Norway: 13th of July in Odderøya Live Festival, Kristiansand.
