  1. Joyride was introduced by a song called “Hocus Pocus” from a Dutch 70’s band called “Focus”. Very few people in the audience (only the older part) recognised it so there was hardly any reaction from the audience on it. The band members had a great laugh about it and made a bit of fun of Christoffer.

    He tried the tune again during the solo in Joyride but once more it did not work. Speaking to Pelle after the show, he confirmed that it has happened a few times before on the tour that Chris’ local tune wasn’t recognised by the audience.

  2. Thanks for letting us know. Will add it now!

    I had the same impression, the audience didn’t really react. Strange. 🙂 But it was the same yesterday – he played the hymn of the local football team (since we were in their stadium) but I felt that hardly anyone recognized the song. I think it’s because not many people came from Kaiserslautern AND were football fans. 🙂

  3. Yeah, the song was a hit in the 70’s so the band members and older audience know it, but the front row doesn’t as it it simply too old.

    On the day after the semifinals it would have been great to play a local football tune, but we all know why that wasn’t such a good plan anymore… 😉

  4. I did not recognize the song either. I listened to hocus pocus on my iTunes, and I recognized the jodeling part. Anyway, I had a wonderful evening. Jonas was a good supporting act. And than, finally, a real full Roxette concert again! Wow, they really amazed me. They played super good. I really enjoyed the show until the end.

  5. Oops, I just got “told off” by Per on Facebook that the Focus song was called “Sylvia”… Ouch! But I guess he knows best… 😀
