Roxette are in Canada – the first concert today!

Roxette with the band have finally arrived to Ottawa, Canada where they are going to play their very first full North American concert in 20 years! As the promotional campaign is in the full speed, Per Gessle gave several interviews for both radio and print outlets.

Here are the most interesting quotes from him from

“Two countries in the world released the first Roxette album – it was Canada and Sweden, Gessle says of the group’s 1986 debut, Pearls of Passion. We have a very long relationship with Canada. It’s always been amazing.”

But as much fun as they’re having, Gessle admits that a long break after the tour will be best for band and fans alike. “Everyone is on their knees by now, he says of the gruelling schedule.And how can you miss us if we won’t go away?”

Per also did a 5-question Q&A for Lite 95.7 based in Edmonton. Have a listen!
