The videos are awesome! Marie, you rule!!!!!!!!!
Another good review from the most important local newspaper:
I was in the first line; they all were awesome, Marie and Per left their heart in every song, and left the stage with a big big smile (like all of them). At the end Per walk with her with a hand on her soulder (he is a real gentelemen) I will never forget that. Hope I can see them again (because was the best show I ever seen in my life).
Thanks for sing in Rosario
Thanks for play SILVER BLUE (My favourite song)
And thanks for give us the best of you (I felt that)
I ll keep their smiles and songs deep in my heart.
Ok, since I have read that Per was trying to figure what the reviews said, and I dont have facebook, I will try to translate it as good as I can (forgive my english), prolly I will have to create some words that don’t have a translation or serch some others in the dictionary.
Title: “Thousands of Rosarinians did enjoy Roxette’s ’90ish pop”
Subtit: “The most important swedish duet of the ’90s made its presentation yesterday, by the very first time, at Rosario, in front of thousands of people at the Metropolitan Scenario. Roxette, leaded by the voices of Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle, came with its Neverending Tour”
Review: “The most important swedish duet of the ’90s made its presentation the day before yesterday, by the very first time, at Rosario, in front of thousands of people at the Metropolitan Scenario. Roxette, leaded by the voices of Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle, came with its Neverending Tour and made a run trought all their hits, supported on its 25 years career and its last work, “Charm School (Escuela de encanto, o Escuela Encantadora)”. “Dressed for Success” was the first song to sound and woke up the ’90ish euphoria of several generations. Marie looked extremely thinness, dressed with black leather pants and black shirt, and get worried the crowd, but that didn’t stop her to spread out all her talent.
With a shocking staging, Roxette’s first hit came with “Sleeping in my car”. The seats from stalls and vip stalls disappeared from the very first minute, cause everyone wanted to dance and the artistic quality (of the band) deserved to be standed up. “Good night, Rosario, this is the first time we come here, but won’t be the last”, Gessle said, and he announced: “The next song is 25 years old”, then to present “It must have been love” (“Pearls of passion, 1986”), from when the band started to triumph with a fall of hits. With more than 75 millions albums sold, Roxette is an icon of the 80’s and 90’s pop culture. Per Gessle introduced the musicians who participate in the tour and then the bass guitar man, Andress Herrlin, refered to the synthetizer, that is in the band since its origin, as the “blue swedish sexual machine”. “How do you do”, melted with “Dangerous”, “Joyride” and an unfinishable list of hits, seized the night.
Suddenly, a tribute to Gustavo Cerati with “De música ligera”, played by the guitar man, touched the crowd, as it did at the Gran Rex days ago. After “Spending my time”, The Look -the band’s hit by excellence and the one that lead them to fame in 1989- came. “We can’t leave this place without sing this song with you”, the vocalist said, moving the crowd back in time to 1988 with the ballad “Listen to you heart”. The end was in the hands of the single “Church of your heart” (Joyride, 1991, and Per was brilliant playing the harmomica. A flawless show, which move the crowd to the exquisite 90’s, when the new wave and the pop used to melt to create hits that even today are in force. “It was a fantastic night”, Marie said, between balloons overflying the room. In this way, the two icons of the band left the stage braced, showing once more to the world, and for the very first time in Rosario, that the musicians who made history, never go out of style”.
So far, this is the review. I should apologize about the mistakes of it, but if you like to read the comments about it, made by the fans at the bottom of it, you will note that they know more of you than the journalists. By instance, the bass guitar man is Magnus Börjeson, and the show in Buenos Aires was at the Luna Park. Whatever, I tried to make a faithful translation, despite of the errors you could find on the review. Hope it helps you to understand what the papers said (the other review posted by Per is basically the same), which, of course, its not ever an infinitesimal part of what people felt that last Monday. Wish you come back again some day and, if I still walk on this world, you can be sure I will be there again. Thanks for bring me back the good memories of my adolescense. Emilio
Thanks for the show!!! Excellent!!!
HBrox, excuse me. Newspaper “La Capital” is the best, but the new realy is a shame
Thank you, nice! 🙂
Hi ivorox… I totally agree that the new is not so accurate… a lot of mistakes.. but anyway, apart from those “”technical mistakes” that only speak badly for the journalist that wrote the article, I think that the article itself speaks positively about Roxette’s performance on the show. And it’s always nice to have an article published in the most important local newspaper. That’s way I wanted to share it with the rox community.
