Many thought it was a good idea to go and see Roxette on 14th Feb, so Perth Arena was quite packed. The band proved it was the best way the crowd could spend their Valentine’s Day. Marie changed the tiger pattern jacket she was wearing in Brisbane for a white jacket and she had a pair of very hot pants on. Even if it seemed to be a bad leg day for her (she was sitting during 2/3 of the show), her performance was still so powerful and one could realize again she’s such an inspiration. The band made the whole audience jump up from their seats and dance, as well as sing along loudly.

There were changes in the setlist. Fading Like A Flower just had to be back, since it has always been a huge hit in Australia. Almost Unreal stayed on the setlist though and came as the first extra song. Perfect Day was sadly left out and Watercolours In The Rain / Paint was performed at its place instead. 7Twenty7 wasn’t played.

Per shared their view on the show right after it had ended:

PERTH! Yes. Wonderful gig in wonderful Perth. Thanx everyone for singing along and showing some serious boogie-moves this hot Saturday! See you next time, dears!!!! Cheers from P&M&Co

Next gig is on Tuesday (17th February) in Adelaide, Australia.
