Are you in the mood of joining the Joyride?

SVT Play has shared a snippet (4m 56s long) from the upcoming Roxette Live concert film premiering on 2nd January, 2013 on SVT1. This part is from Joyride. Per shouts: “C’mon, Santiago!” at about 1:10, but some fans say crowd scenes are also from Argentina. As SVT Play informs, it will be a 1-hour-long programme on SVT1.

Before you react, please, remember that we’re all MAGIC FRIENDS! 😉

 

Thanx Arnaldo M Suarez for the crowd scenes info.

Roxette – It All Begins Where It Ends

Roxette’s new documentary – It All Begins Where It Ends – premiered on SVT1 at 22:30 CET, 26th December. All Roxers were too excited whether they can watch it later on SVT Play or not, but fortunately, right after the docu started on TV, it was already available on SVT Play. There was a 1-hour silence on Facebook, as the whole Roxer community was watching it eagerly. Our expectations were high after watching the teaser, but looking at all the comments regarding the documentary, we can say it exceeded our expectations.

Reading the articles on aftonbladet.se and on expressen.se (including a touching part of the documentary) made us a bit worrying. These articles are more about Marie’s illness, so we were wondering whether the docu is built totally on this or it’s an inevitable part to make everyone understand what a big thing is that Roxette were touring the world and to show how all this made Marie even stronger.

Well, the documentary is about so much more than Marie’s illness. See it with your own eyes here!

Per says on Roxette Official:

Thanks for the response re the Rox Doc and for practicing your Swedish! The version you can see here and there on the internet at the moment is exclusively edited for Swedish TV and will be longer on the DVD (and shorter on some international TV stations…). If God is good we’re looking at a March 2013 DVD/BluRay release date.

As he informed us earlier, the documentary “will be subtitled for each country”.
