The setlist seems to be the same as in Taipei, just that “Sleeping in my car” was skipped. Roxette were requested to slightly change the lyrics for this song the last time they played in China, but they did not agree on that. This time it seems they skipped it completely, probably due to authorities request. There was at least 5 meters from the stage to the first row and according various sources from 60% to 80% tickets sold which means around 8,000 people attending the concert – the most expensive tickets were sold out, as for the cheapest ones – not all..
