After last night’s ultrasensational gig in Sydney, everyone was wondering what the band prepared for today’s sold out concert. Well, Roxette never disappoint, so the crowd at Bimbadgen Winery in Hunter Valley got a fabulous show tonight.

It was A Day On The Green gig just like the one in Yarra Valley a week ago and so the people walking around the location could see those beauty signs with all the Rox lyrics on them. The concert started again in the sunset, but it soon got dark, so the brilliant stage lighting could be enjoyed much more.

There was a huge crowd and they all got the Saturday night fever already at the beginning of the gig, so they were on their feet to show how they can dance to those magic vibes. While in Yarra Valley the security team first tried to make people sit down, here, in Hunter Valley even the security guys and event staff joined the party and were dancing during The Look. One must love it!

The band didn’t show any signs of missing a day off between 2 concerts. They were putting all their energy into making this last Aussie gig an unforgettable one. And they succeeded. I’m sure even the kangaroos in the vineyard had one hell of a party.

Per’s touching comment after the concert:

A DAY ON THE GREEN in Bimbadgen. Oh Yeah! Couldn’t imagine a better finale to the NZ/OZ XXX Tour!!!! We love it here!!

Thanx everyone for taking care of us, being so kind and showing true affection for this little band from the south of Sweden. We will never forget the singalong heroes and crazy but irresistable dancing aficionados that have rocked our world for a couple of weeks.

This tour will live on. We truly hope we can come back to play for you again. No promises, this band moves in mysterious ways. But we’d love to come back, you know that!!

Now it’s back to Europe for us, the studio is waiting. And Pelle’s personal trainer. And Magnus has to find a barber. And the European XXX-tour is that not far away. See y’all in the summer starting in May! Love from P&M&C&C&M&P&D

 

Now comes a bit more than 2 months break and the next gig, the first one of the next tour leg is on 10th May in Milan, Italy! Promising start with a sold out show! Europe is looking very much forward to having Roxette back! Don’t forget that in April we get a new Roxette single off a new Roxette album that is planned to be released at the end of October, so the tour break won’t be so boring. Woohoo!
