The last time Roxette played in Sofia was in May 2011. That was a sold out gig with 15000 people in the crowd. According to Per, there were more than 11000 people tonight, but the news on Bulgarian Nova TV informed that this time there were again appr. 15000 fans at Arena Armeec. No matter how many attended the gig, one thing is sure: they were incredibly loud! They had pure fun and never wanted to stop clapping!

Even if Per asked to keep that sun shining, it was a rainy day in Sofia, but it didn’t let the band down. Everyone was in top shape on stage. Many complained about the arena’s poor acoustics and some technical issues, but it seems all could get over it and Roxette kept the spirits high by singing their hearts out and playing all those instruments with full power.

Per & Co. after the show:

SOFIA UPDATE: Yea!!!! Truly fantastic gig tonite. What a crowd! What a band!!!! Loved every minute of it! Hope you did it too! (I know you did…). Thanx everyone for making this happen. Love always! Now: RoxAir back north! Vids tomorrow! Cheers, P&Co

Roxette is back on the road after celebrating midsommar this weekend. Next gig is on Monday (22nd June) in Warsaw, Poland.
