Roxette arrived to Switzerland on 5th April and went to the venue in the afternoon. Some VERY lucky fans had a chance to hear and see the soundcheck. Even Per stated it on Facebook:
Wow! We love this place. Had a great soundcheck in front of serious winter lovers/Rox fans and it all felt like the tour was still going on. More to come tomorrow.
Fans reported that Roxette were in top shape like there was no break. Per had the same opinion:
The band looks like they just came back from Mexico last year!
Those serious winter lover Roxers were already there at the venue early this morning, to be able to reach the front row and they made it! SnowpenAir was reported to be sold out: 9000 tickets. First there was MC Juli, Hanery Amman, then came OneRepublic at 13:30. At 15:30 Roxette hit the stage.
We hoped for a certain coat to appear on this gig and when our RXB team mate Kirsten wrote a Facebook status after the show started: ”MaTaH coat!!!”, we all were very happy. We asked her about Per’s outfit, too and then let her enjoy the show. 😉
The gig lasted for about 1.5 hour. Roxers say it was an amazing, awesome, fantastic show, so fans had a blast! According to the photos we’ve seen so far and Per’s post, Roxette had a blast, too and they looked HOT HOT HOT!
Thanx for a fab afternoon delight by the ski slopes here in Switzerland. Wonderful reception, and Hey! This band works like clockwork!! First gig in six months, only less than an hour soundcheck yesterday and and almost everything works. Amazing + purrfect. Thanx everyone for your support, always nice to see familiar faces in the first rows!
Cheers + see ya next time! /P&M
