Marie’s tour: Uppsala audio bootleg

After Norrköping audio and Göteborg and Halmstad video bootlegs, another audio bootleg showed up from Uppsala (19th March 2014). The sound is low, so turn up the volume to hear it better. Thanks a lot for sharing it, Bianca Martins Cappelletti from Roxette Brasil! In audio bootlegs I always enjoy the talking between the songs the most. Click here for the bootleg.

2 shows left from the tour, Friday in Luleå and Saturday in Umeå. Enjoy the concerts you all who are joining!

Marie’s tour: Västerås, 12th April #17

Yesterday Marie and the band rocked Västerås big time!

The first row was again mostly full of fans, but there were some also in the other rows, which probably helped to keep the mood happy and loud throughout the whole concert. Of course, the band was awesome and Marie was in a very good mood, so all this were the perfect ingredients that made the Swedes want to join the party. And they did already on song #2. After a few shows where we had to wait until towards the end to see some action, I was pretty surprised and felt so happy for the girl and boys on stage. They seemed to be happy with the response as well because they were all smiles, proud smiles.

Of course, Efter stormen was the song where really everybody (not only the fans) stood up and clapped and sang along, but you could see that in many other songs as well. Even the people at the balcony were standing and having fun, and Marie saw that and waved to them with a big smile. At some places we have seen skeptic or a bit angry faces when we stood up to some songs, but yesterday the audience seemed to like that. Like the 70-something ladies in the first row who had a blast; or the 4-6 Swedes that were sitting in row 2 who first looked shocked when we stood up but at the end thanked us in the first row for spreading the fun; or the two mid 50 ladies in the first row who were faster standing up than some of us!

The craziest rockiest song was Mellan sommar och höst. The audience was already standing up when Marie walked out to the stage again and everybody went wild with the amazing guitars and Marie’s rocky voice.

This concert was also the last one for many fans and Marie and band knew it, so they gave special attention to the ones on first row. Specially during Tro when everybody hugged and moved to the rythm of the song and many of us were all tears she gave those looks of hers to many of us. At the end, she also made sad faces to some of the fans she knew were saying goodbye to the tour yesterday night. It was not possible to  hold back the tears, it is actually also not possible as I am writing this now. It has been so special… the love tour :)

Some fans had prepared flowers and a card for Marie to thank her for the great tour. Many fans had signed it and Anne gave it to Chris at the end of the show. The fans who waited for Marie after the concert explained that Micke had thanked them for coming to the concerts and said that fans turned the tour to something completely different and special and he added that the reviews were all very good because of that.

By the way, Clarence was in the audience yesterday night.

So now it’s just 2 concerts left: Luleå and Umeå. Those who are going to the last shows will surely give our best and party until the end!

Marie interviews before Gävle and Västerås concerts

Gefle Dagblad (GD) & Vestmanlands Läns Tidning (VLT) did e-mail interviews with Marie before the concerts in Gävle and Västerås.

GD.seStefan Andersson from GD asked Marie about the tour and Marie said it’s been better than she ever dared to hope for. The special memory she will take with herself from the tour is the audience’s immense response. To the question which her most beloved song is now she replied “Sista sommarens vals”. The reporter asked her if she would perform “Sparvöga” och “Ännu doftar kärlek” if the audience would be crying out for them. She said they don’t even have to cry out for these songs.

GD asked Marie about how it is working so closely with Micke. Miss Effe said:

“Wonderful! We’ve been working together for so long now, both in the studio and live. He’s an awesome musician and songwriter.”

Regarding her plans for summer she informed she’ll go on vacation and have a rest. Recovery after the tour.

To the question when we will see Roxette again she replied soon, she hopes. Also mentions that her favourite song from The Look era is Dangerous, because it’s so great to perform it live.

She also said that it’s an honor that they are among the first ones in The Swedish Music Hall of Fame.

Regarding Gävle, she remembered Roxette performed there in Folkets Park, in 1987 and it was great one for them.

 

 

vlt.seSylvia Kadri from VLT asked Marie about how tough the tour is and if there are any tricks to get into shape before the concerts. Marie said they play mostly during the weekends so she recovers herself during the week. Walking, sleeping and eating well. And she gets an enormous energy from the band and the audience.

To the question how cancer changed her life Marie replied she takes everything easy and tries to avoid any kind of stress. She is grateful that she lives and feels joy in so many things that she previously took for granted. She said as an artist she changed like it takes longer time to write music, but her voice has matured and gotten a different depth. To the question what she is doing to keep herself healthy she replied she takes it easy. Eating, sleeping and spending time with family and friends are very important.

The reporter asked her what is inspiring her nowadays. Marie said the nature. She loves sitting in her garden and listening to the birds this time of the year.

Regarding what music she is listening to she said Joni Mitchell remains important in her life and Jimi Hendrix is always with her. Rufus Wainright is a new inspiration for Marie.

She didn’t want to talk about her big dream projects, but the future is more about resting than hectic tour life. Now she is looking very much forward to summer.

Marie’s tour: Gävle, 11th April #16

Marie played the 16th concert of this tour in Gävle tonight. I started to realise during the concert that it’s only 3 concerts left after this one, so I kept telling myself ‘only three times left to enjoy this song’ or this moment… this is going to be a hard after-tour blues!!

The concert was… you guessed it! Amazing!

The front row was fully taken by fans. I could change our 5th/6th rows we had gotten via Ticnet for 1st row tickets a few hours before the concert thanks to very nice staff at the concert hall. Sometimes one just has to ask! It turned out some other fans had asked as well to switch seats because we were all sitting there (it would have looked quite weird if nobody would have sat there, weird ticketing system…).

So it was the first row mainly who stood up as always. This time, though, I didn’t have the feeling that the audience wasn’t into it but the other way around. They reacted to what Marie said and joked about and also when they heard the first tunes of songs like Sparvöga, Ännu doftar kärlek or Tro.
And they did partly stand up at Efter stormen and rocked along at Mellan sommar och höst. The version of this song played tonight was probably one of the rockiest of the whole tour!!
Amazing guitars tonight, by the way. I think even Marie thought Chris and Jokke were superb tonight judging by her reaction and face.
Micke changed the intro of Tro a little bit and it’s simply beautiful.
And Marie left us all with our mouth open with Så skimrande… wow!! I am always amazed by her powerful voice!

One if the anecdotes tonight: Pelle had started to play the drums for Om du såg mig nu when somebody (Chris, Micke?) shouted for him to hold on. Marie was to speak! She introduced the song as the one which is dedicates to her dad.
She sang this song with a lot of feeling. She always does of course, but I felt tonight was extra deep and special.

Some fans had paper hearts that they held up during Tro. Marie also got flowers from some fans.

Tomorrow: Västerås!

Marie’s tour: Stockholm, 8th April #15

Judith’s review
Today it was finally the day for concert that many were waiting for, expecting it to be a blast! And what to say, the concert was more than super! Marie was welcomed by a very very loud crowd and she had to wait a bit to start singing the first song. After that she was all smiles! The shouting and the smiles remained the whole concert.

After an amazing concert in Linköping I didn’t think this could be topped, but wow! The band did an amazing job, I’ve never seen Surjo move around so much before, Chris, watch out! ;)

Jokke was all smiles all the time, as were all of us in the audience. Jokke also delivered an incredible solo in Den sjunde vågen, which also felt longer than usual. It was simply great to see the band and Marie have so much fun with us, or the other way around.

The most touching song was probably the last one, Tro. It was the last concert for many fans and I could see many of us hugging and singing along. It felt as if the song had suddenly become a hymn for love and friendship. Not to forget to mention that fans had arranged to bring roses to give to Marie at the end. Everybody had one rose, at the end of Tro all of them were brought to the front and put on the stage. Micke collected them all and took them backstage for Marie.

There were also some familiar faces in the audience. Lasse Lindbom, Anders Herrlin, Mats MP Persson, Jonas Åkerlund and, last but not least, Per and Åsa, just to mention a few. Per posted on Facebook that they celebrated the 25th anniversary of The Look reaching #1 in USA at the after-show party.

 

Patrícia’s review

Per and Åsa at Cirkus - sorry for the bad quality pic... :)

Åsa & Per at Cirkus – sorry for the bad quality pic…
Check out Roxette Rosario’s pic, too ;)

As you could already read here and there, Marie’s gig in Stockholm was marvellous with many famous people in the crowd. Oh yes, with Per among them! Woohoo! We’ve been expecting him to appear at this concert, but we couldn’t be sure he would really come until we saw Åsa, Per and Jonas Åkerlund arriving together 1-2 minutes before 19:30. They found their places in the 10th row, on the left side, close to the exit. After many Roxers realized Per was there, we started clapping and he and Åsa waved to us smiling. After some minutes we repeated it. It was awesome to see him in the crowd, sitting among us. Besides them, there were many other familiar faces and now I’m not talking only about the hardcore fans. Mats MP Persson (who was sitting in front of Per), Anders Herrlin, Clarence Öfwerman, Dea Norberg (she even posted a pic on her Instagram), Marie Dimberg, Lasse Lindbom were there in the audience, just to name some of them, but there were many other famous Swedish people in the crowd. Also Oscar, Marie’s son was there, sitting in the 6th row, together with his grandma, Micke’s mum.


MF_CirkusOne could have thought that this crowd would make Marie and the band nervous, but no! They were in TOP shape and rocked Cirkus! The sound was perfect and Marie’s voice simply blown us away. She was smiling a lot and the audience was clapping so much that some songs had to wait to be started. I think there was no concert where they could start Så stilla så långsamt so late, waiting for the audience to be silent. Marie enjoyed it so much, you could see it on her face. She was shining!

I must admit that the audience was very good at clapping, they could even follow the rhythm Surjo and Micke showed by clapping themselves, but if you ask about how many of them stood up… Hm. We, the international fans (Argentina, Austria, Brazil, Bulgaria, Czecz Republic, Germany, Hungary, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Russia, Switzerland, The Netherlands, USA etc.) were sitting at different places in the crowd, owing to the not so funny mechanism the tickets went on sale in October. Some got tickets in rows in the middle, some in the front, some in the back, others on the balcony. We thought it was a great chance to animate the Swedish part of the crowd even more, since we could do a little of this ”job” in every corner of Cirkus.

We stood up already at Kom vila hos mig and we expected the Cirkus crowd being at least as cool as Göteborg audience was and following us, but not really. Unfortunately, there were a lot of people in the middle and on the left of the first 4-5 rows who were not willing to stand up, so people in the back could have thought it was still better to be sitting. We thought, OK, maybe at the next fast song they would realize how they should act when seeing how Marie loves this reaction and they see the security guys didn’t make us sitting.

Oh yes, talking about security guys – who were not present at any other shows so far – Atli, from Show Security Sweden was there too. You surely remember him and his team from the Gyllene Tider tour. I greeted him after the concert and he said the show was great, he liked it a lot.

Back to the concert: Så länge det lyser mittemot made us stand up and dance again. Then there were some more in the crowd who followed us, but the left side was still sitting, only clapping. Efter stormen was our next party song. It rocked big time again! There were Swedes sitting in front of me and it was such a good feeling to see them deciding: ”OK, maybe now we could really stand up” and they did so. C’mon, people! There is nothing wrong with it… Live it!

Den sjunde vågen was fabulous this time again and I always have a big smile on my face when I see Marie’s reaction to the fact she has to go off stage. It’s different every time, but always so lovely. After she left the stage, the guys went crazy. Christoffer even throw away his hat. Hat was grabbed up by Jokke when they also left the stage. I have to mention that I think Jokke was the best on this concert from the 5 I’ve seen. He’s a great guitarist! We couldn’t stop clapping and being loud to have Marie back on stage and some minutes later she appeared again for the extra songs. We didn’t sit down and Mellan sommar och höst was again the song that made even more people stand up. Even Per stood up towards the end of it. Hats off, Mr. G! We’re very proud of you! ;) Then came Den bästa dagen and many of us had the feeling it was really the best day of our lives. Such a fantastic concert it was! And it hadn’t ended yet. During Tro we stood up again and there were roses in our hands. We’ve been holding them up and waving them during the whole song. Thank you very much for the great idea, Christina Tholander and Nina Wolfframm and also thanx a lot to Heartland Anne, who organized roses for many fans and even a heart-shaped bunch of red roses for Marie. When the song ended, we’ve been forwarding the roses to the front and Micke was collecting them, while Marie got one bunch of red roses from a fan, handed over by Micke N-S and Chris collected the heart-shaped bunch. It looked fab and Marie was so happy to get the flowers. Awesomeness! (You can see it here, in the video I embedded and on these 3 Instagram pics: 1, 2, 3.) Per was leaving his seat before Tro ended, but Åsa stayed until the end of the song.

After the concert, there was a celebration of the 25th anniversary of The Look’s becoming No. 1. on the Billboard. The celebration took place in a separated area of the restaurant at Cirkus. Everyone looked very happy and enjoyed their time there. Per’s comment on tonight’s show:

TUESDAY EVENING UPDATE: Had a blast at Marie’s gig at Cirkus in Stockholm. Wonderful concert and Miss Effe + band in top shape. Great to see so many Roxers making a lotta noise. Afterwards some press + celebration with old friends. As you probably know by now….The Look No 1 in the US goes 25! Thanx Warner/EMI for being great hosts! Cheers, P.

We’re glad you enjoyed it! We had a blast, too! Unfortunately, this was my last concert on this tour. I’m very sad about it, but I’m grateful that I could be a part of it and enjoy every second of 5 absolutely fabulous and exceptional concerts. Tack så väldigt mycket Marie & the band! By the way, can you believe that only 4 shows left from this magical tour? Impossible. We need a next tour soon!

Marie’s tour: Linköping, 5th April #14

MF_LKPAfter Halmstad concert I was definitely longing for more shows and now I had the chance to come back to Sweden and see the concert in Linköping. Since those fans who were there yesterday said Borås concert was amazing, I expected a fabulous show tonight, too. And it was indeed a fabulous concert.

Marie and the band enjoy being on stage during this tour more and more by every show. It feels so good to see that, even when people in the crowd in rows from row No. 4 are not really reacting. Marie’s voice was in a perfect shape, as well as all the instruments and their players. The audience? Well… No one could ever explain it to me why Swedes act like how they are acting during such concerts. There are, of course, exceptions (e.g. Växjö, Göteborg, Halmstad), but the Swedish part of most of the crowds during this tour is… I just can’t understand them. Why is it so difficult to stand up? They can’t even see the stage if we are standing and dancing and jumping in the first 3 or so rows and they are sitting, so no clue why they can’t join us. OK, if they don’t stand up, they could at least clap according to the ”choreography” Surjo, Micke or Marie are showing on stage during some songs. That would be so easy. Anyway, Marie enjoyed the reaction of the first rows and we are very happy about it. As usual.

 

MF_LKP_end_with_heartsInternational fans stood up already during Kom vila hos mig, but this time we missed out on standing up at Så länge det lyser mittemot, however the song would have wanted us to do so. At Efter stormen nothing could stop us, we stood up again and had a great party. After the break, Marie came back and we stood up again. It was just then when the Swedes stood up, too. They seemed to like Mellan sommar och höst. Then we sat down and towards the end of Tro, we stood up again. Then Marie also showed the audience to stand up, but first they were not reacting. After some moments they realized they should also stand up, so they did so. Phew.

At the end of the concert, Russian fans threw their red, heart-shaped balloons to the stage and Jokke and Micke were playing with them as if those would have been their hearts, beating. It was lovely.

 

The venue was not really full. There were 3 rows in the very front, where normally the orchestra has its place, but now there were seats. Even there were some empty places, so those fans, who could buy tickets only for the 5th-7th rows could come to the front and party there. This was the first time I was sitting in a seat from where I could see Pelle, too during the whole concert. On other concerts I was sitting in one of the first 3 rows, but in the middle, so he was hiding behind the cymbals and Marie. Tonight he was the best at the end of Den sjunde vågen, teasing the guys with his playing the drums like he didn’t want to end that part. It sounded brilliant.

After the show we were waiting for Marie and the guys outside the venue. There we met Pelle and Jokke and chatted with them. As Jokke saw it was again the international fans coming to say hi, he asked: ”Where are the Swedes?” It said it all. They surely went home to sleep after being so tired of sitting still. We got to know they are travelling to Stockholm still tonight. After some time a guy came out to tell us there wouldn’t be time for pictures or autographs, we could only say goodbye to Marie and the band. That was of course enough for us. First Pelle, Jokke and Surjo came out, then Chris and Micke. Micke asked us: ”Plus or minus?” (How we would evaluate the concert.) We said it was an extra plus. He said it was one of the best concerts. For us, each concert is one of the bests that’s for sure. And we have to agree with him thinking about what happened on stage. There everything was perfect and it was really one of the best shows. Marie was the last who came out. She thanked us for being there and told us: “See you in Stockholm!” Oh yeah! We’re going to be there! Everyone was sitting in the minibus already and they were waiting for Pelle to smoke his cigarette. He didn’t want to leave and said he would rather stay and drink a beer with us. Before sitting in, he said: “OK, I drive!” Some of us reacted simultaneously: “No, please don’t!” Haha. Marie and the guys were waving goodbye and headed towards Stockholm.

One band member stayed here. You probably guessed it. Chris has some studio time booked by a certain guy for tomorrow, so he couldn’t join the others. We had a nice chat with him and I also asked him about the Brainpool album that was supposed to be out this April. He said he didn’t really have time for that, but it seems they will have some recordings in June. Good luck with it, Chris, David and Jens! Send Per on holidays in June!

Hopefully, there will be an “A.n.o.t.h.e.r. a.i.r.p.o.r.t.” update on Roxette Official after the studio time starting tomorrow is over. ;) Next concert is on Tuesday (8th April) in Stockholm and it’s gonna be splendido!

Marie’s tour: Borås, 4th April #13

After an almost 2-week-long break, the tour continues. Yesterday’s concert was in Borås, where Marie had never performed before. The venue, Åhaga was quite an interesting one. It looks different to any other venues during this tour. You can see it on the picture we shared on our Facebook page (thanx again for that, Ivan Kelava). There were appr. 750 people in the audience, mainly from the older generation, but international fans were there now again to make noise and according to them the show was amazing. Marie was barefoot as usual, she was in top top top shape and the band, too. They sounded amazing! After they had these 2 weeks of relaxing time, they came back to rock the house with full energy and they succeeded in it.

6 shows left from the tour. Linköping today!

Short interview with Marie before Borås concert

MF_Xtra_BorasMarie Fredriksson’s tour goes on tomorrow. Next stop is Borås. Xtra Borås did a short interview with Marie which you can read here and even download it in pdf. No real news in it, but it’s always nice to read any kind of interview with her.

She says she is very happy that she can do this tour. It feels great to be back. Last time it was in 1992 when she played in concert halls before this tour. She also says most people are used to her voice in Roxette, but it’s a different feeling when she is singing in Swedish. After her illness, her voice became deeper and she thinks there’s a stronger presence in it, which she enjoys. She’s always lived in music and it’s still such a big part of her.

Tomorrow’s concert is Marie’s first ever in Borås. But there is a link between Borås and Roxette. Dean Cushman, the exchange student we all know the story of was studying computer science at the University of Borås and found Roxette’s music there.

Xtra Borås asked Marie what’s left to achieve in her long and successful career. Marie said she hopes she can keep on doing what she loves the most so long as possible and she hopes that the audience is with her for a long time. Marie says she finds inspiration in everything: the silence, the garden, at the sea and in everyday life. Her favourite song off ”Nu!” is “Sista sommarens vals” now.

The last question to her was what she is Xtra happy about right now. She replied:

The spring sun! It’s so nice that winter comes to an end now.

Interview with Marie about the tour: “I am overwhelmed by the response of the audience”

IMG_01762We have had the chance to interview Marie Fredriksson via email during the short tour break and before the tour goes on this Friday in Borås.

RXB: It’s your first solo tour since 2000. How does it feel to be on the stage again singing your own songs?
Marie: Fantastic! I have looked forward to it!

RXB: Regarding the setlist that you put together for this tour. Is there any song that you rehearsed that you now think you should have included in the setlist?
Marie: No, I’m very happy with this setlist.

RXB: And, on the other hand, is there any song that you included in the setlist but you were not sure if it would work?
Marie: It’s always exciting trying old songs with new musicians and I was just happy with the result after our rehearsals.

RXB: I think it is very brave (and rare) to start a concert with such a stripped down acoustic song – how come you chose to play this version of “Så stilla så långsamt” and to play it as first song?
Marie: It was something that Micke suggested. I think it turned out very well.

RXB: How do you feel to the reaction of the audience to songs like “Så länge det lyser mittemot”, “Efter stormen” or “Mellan sommar och höst”, with the audience standing up and dancing along?
Marie: Of course, it makes me incredibly happy – it’s a wonderful feeling to see this from the stage. I am overwhelmed by the response of the audience and I couldn’t imagine how positive they react to all the songs!

RXB: More than half of the shows are done now, only 7 left. How do you feel about the tour so far? Are you going to change anything for the upcoming “second leg” of the tour?
Marie: It’s amazing how quickly time flies when you’re having fun.. I will do my best to really enjoy the rest of the tour but I don’t think we’ll change anything…

RXB: What is your favourite song on this tour?
Marie: It’s hard to choose a favourite song, it changes a bit from concert to concert. 

RXB: Everybody thinks the tour is amazing and that it should be available on DVD or at least CD. Any plans for that?
Marie: No plans for a DVD, we’ll see about a live CD…

RXB: Many fans are travelling from all corners of the world to see you live, what do you think about that? Did you expect to see so many “familiar faces”?
Marie: I am so grateful for the support from the international fans – it’s moving and overwhelming and to be honest – I didn’t expect such a huge turn-up. Thank you all!

RXB: Your husband Micke and nephew Jokke are playing with you in this tour. How does it feel to be able to share your passion for music with your family?
Marie: Michael and I have been on tour before (1992 & 2000) and to add Jokke to the band was a great decision! It’s wonderful to create music with them.

RXB: You also look very proud when Jokke plays the solos… he said in an interview with us that he had waited his whole life to play with you. How is it from your point of view?
Marie: I’ve seen him grow up to become a brilliant musician and of course he makes me incredibly proud!

RXB: Looking at the future, we heard about a possible jazz album and a biography. Could you tell us something about that already?
Marie: It’s something I’ve always wanted to do and will do when the timing is right. You’ll be the first to know…

TDR also got the chance to email-interview Marie, check it out here.

Marie’s tour: Göteborg and Halmstad video bootlegs

As far as we know, there is no plan to record any of the concerts during Marie Fredriksson’s tour for a DVD, however, after being in the crowd at 2 of (so far) the best concerts (Göteborg and Halmstad), I definitely think there should be a live DVD. I’m sure many fans agree with me. Maybe it’s still not too late… Stockholm will most probably be one of the best shows as well, if not the best, since the most international fans are going to attend that concert. If there is no possibility, we will of course be very happy with a live CD at least. ;)

Until then we have YouTube and thanks to the fans who recorded those 2 awesome shows, Göteborg (15/03/2014) and Halmstad (21/03/2014) concerts are available as video bootlegs.

We already shared it on our Facebook site, but I must include it here, too: click here to watch the complete megafabulous Göteborg show! I still think that show would have been a perfect one to record for a DVD. Thanks heaps again for sharing, Alexander!

Now the videos for Halmstad are also available, so you can watch Marie’s and the band’s top shape performance and hear the fantastic crowd reactions. My personal fave from the videos is Bara för en dag (screenshot is also from that part). Just look at Marie’s facial expressions and gestures. Lovely! Thanks a million, Nikolett Zentai and Monika for sharing the videos!

Interview with Jokke Pettersson: “The tour has been super great so far!”

We met Jokke Pettersson, one of the two guitar players in Marie’s band during the current tour, in Växjö some hours before the show. As we’ve always tried with other band members and Rox&Co related musicians, we wanted to know more about Jokke and his career and his multiple bands. Enjoy!

Judith: Thank you for your time for this interview. We would like to get to know you a bit better, IMG_0025_so to start with, could you tell us how you got into music?

Jokke: Sure! I started playing drums when I was 7 years old. My father borrowed an old drum kit from a friend and just asked me if I wanted to try. It was kind of easy for me to learn some easy grooves and I thought it was fun to play right away. I think it is very important with music, you have to think it’s fun from the beginning, if it feels too difficult you will just quit sooner or later.

So I tried that and I liked it but since I’ve always been kind of a song writer, I wanted to express melodies and that’s hard on a drum kit. I taught a friend to play drums instead and I borrowed an old electric guitar and an old amp from a friend. I only used borrowed stuff in the beginning haha! We started to practice in my bedroom the two of us, he just played drums and I learnt some riffs. It was much fun, one of the best moments ever. We did that for about three years, it was an amazing time.

So I got started with electric guitar when I was 10 or 11, but I wasn’t serious about it until I was about 13. Then I started to practice seriously on the guitar, took some lessons and started my first band.

What were your favourite bands and your inspiration when you started?

I was a hard-core metal fan back then. I still am but in a different way, I love all kinds of music today. Back then I was really into Nirvana, Green Day, Metallica, Pantera, all that crazy stuff. I really loved the volume, the energy and the guitars.

Later, I got into progressive rock, bands like Dream Theater. I really wanted to push myself and I really wanted to find harder music to learn. This kind of music is harder to play and it meant I had to practice a lot more to make it sound like something.

I checked some YouTube videos before the interview and listened to some tracks by Karavan. They feel more like rock-blues to me. How did you get into this style?

Yes, when I started at the Swedish high school I went to a music school and started to listen to other music like jazz and blues, R’n'B and all that. So I kept on working on that.

I mentioned Karavan before, but you are also member of a band called Kayser. The two bands sound very different… Can you tell us about them?

Yes, I play in Kayser (www | FB | spotify) and Karavan (www | FB | spotify). And they are very very different, indeed!

Kayser is a trash-metal band that plays groovy American influenced trash like some of the bands that I listened to when I grew up. We just released an album with Kayser. A few years ago we did a few tours with that band and we have released two albums before this one. That’s been kind of my baby for many years. We put it on ice for a few years and now we are back. It feels amazing!

Karavan is me and some friends having a band, we are also working very hard with it releasing albums and touring with different artists. I sing in that band but sometimes we bring over artists from the United States to play with us. We toured with Hunter Perrin, who was the guitar player for John Fogerty for many years, he also has his own music, so we toured Scandinavia with him two times. And last November (2013) we toured with Camaron Ochs, a country artist from Nashville, so we played some country. Hunter Perrin is more rock’n'roll. Karavan’s own music is a kind of blues rock, Rolling Stones influenced.

Are you the songwriter in both bands?

We all write the songs, in both bands. It’s just the classic band where everybody comes up with demos, ideas and composes or writes music and lyrics.
We are currently writing songs for a new album with Karavan. I am doing that in between this tour on the days off and then I am in the studio recording.

It sounds like a lot of music going on at the moment!

Yes indeed! Also because like I said Kayser just released our new album a few weeks ago. And the tour with Marie. It’s been a very busy month. It just feels great, I am very greatful for that.

I read reviews about Kayser’s latest album “Read your enemy” (on Spotify)  and they are all very positive.

Yes, it’s been great to get this response. Of course, you sort of know that you’ve done something good, because you believe in yourself and what you’ve done, but we didn’t expect these reviews and feedback. We simply had no expectations, all these reviews are amazing. We feel like “Yes! We made it!”

Are you planning to tour with any of the bands?

We are planning a tour with Hunter in July in Scandinavia, perhaps some shows in Germany. We are also planning a tour with Camaron Ochs again around August. Two months of touring in Summer, and then maybe we are going to tour with Camaron in the United States, it’s not set yet, we are still working on it. And then we plan a tour with Kayser in September.

It looks like a busy schedule in the future too!

Yes, it’s going to be interesting! Three or four months of touring with 3 different bands. Very exciting! I am really looking forward to it!

When you talk about a tour with Kayser, do you mean in Scandinavia or also in Europe? I saw that you did some gigs in Germany some years ago...

Yes, with Kayser we will hopefully set up a tour in Europe. Our audience is mainly in Europe, specially countries like Germany and Belgium. On May 24th we are actually going to Athens for a show! Maybe US in the future but it’s a bigger project.

You are actually working in 3 projects (Kayser, Karavan, Marie’s tour) in parallel. How do you combine them and manage not to get confused?

That’s been a bit of my life for the past 10 years or so, lots of things going on with different bands. That’s keeping me busy, it feels just great.
I think if you have a good planning everything works out. Of course, it could come a time when everything just collides with each other, just thinking of it makes me stressed, but I will keep on doing this for as long as possible.

Of course, music-wise Karavan, Kayser or this tour are very different. I also realised that you use totally different guitars on this tour and with Kayser, for example. But what do you think is the biggest difference audience-wise?

There’s such a different emotional experience. There is a special energy when playing metal music live, fans are dedicated almost in a brutal way, and by that I mean also that fans are sometimes beating each other while we are rocking with our metal music. Metal fans are crazy, haha!

Marie’s fans are very humble, they listen to the music and just have a good time. That makes it a great experience to play in this tour. It’s great to see people loving her songs.

So let’s stay with Marie’s tour. How did Marie ask you to join the tour and what was your reaction?

Well, we talk sometimes on the phone. So she called me and asked “Do you wanna go on tour?” I was like “Oh yes! I’ve been waiting for this moment my whole life!” I love Marie’s solo stuff, I’ve been listening to these songs since I was a kid.

jokkeVYou mention that you’ve known Marie’s songs all your life, but how did you prepare for this tour?

They sent us a list of about 20-30 songs that Marie wanted to play or felt like playing, so I focused on those. The day before the first rehearsal a few more songs came in with the request to try those out too, so I just learnt to the songs.

Somewhere in my head I knew the songs because I’ve been listening to them my whole life, but it’s a different when you have to play them. I wrote down some notes and practiced a little bit every day just to be ready. Listened a lot!

What were your expectations for this tour?

I tried not to have any expectations because it’s more exciting if you don’t. I new it was going to be a great time.
I’ve known Marie my whole life, and I’ve known Micke for many years. I had met Christoffer and Pelle before and I knew they are amazing people. Marie trusts them very much as musicians and as people, so I knew it would be great. I had never met Surjo before but he turned out to be a great guy and a fantastic bassplayer!

It’s really been super great so far! I am really happy, it’s an amazing band, everybody is very nice and we are having a good time. And we sound very good together…

Yes you do! And you and Chris on guitars sound terrific.

Yes! We are very different guitar players, but when you mix that its really fantastic. It feels great.

Speaking about guitars. How many do you have?

I have about 10. As far as the economy allows it haha. I don’t buy guitars for fun though, only if I want to have a special sound then I buy a specific guitar, so I use all my guitars in my projects. I have some V-guitars that I use with Kayser, with Marie I use my Fender guitars because the sound works very well with Marie’s songs, and then I have two acoustic guitars. I have everything I need to be able to work with my bands, that’s the most important for me.

Coming back to the tour. We have seen the first three concerts and then the concert in Malmö yesterday and we were like “wow! What happened to the band?” It feels like you all found your place and interact a lot more. What can you tell about this?

Yes, absolutely. It’s funny because after most of the concerts we are like “this was probably the best gig” and then next evening “this was probably the best gig” haha! The first show was very special for everybody; we were all very focused and nervous in a different kind of way for the premiere show. And then show after show you start to move around a bit more, you feel more comfortable, that is something that happens naturally, it’s nothing you talk about, it just happens because we are playing a lot together. It feels very very good.

The tour started in Helsingborg, which is also your hometown. Did that one concert feel extra special?

Ah! That was a very nervous moment for me. Everybody was there, the whole family, our relatives from Denmark, people that I hadn’t met for many years, lots of friends. Plus it was the first show! Now I am a bit more relaxed but I still get a bit nervous before the show starts, I think this is important, that turns into adrenaline in the end.

Did Marie have any influence in your liking music and wanting to be a musician?

Absolutely. We talked a lot about music when I grew up. I saw Roxette live back in 91-92, we travelled to watch them play with my family, I was 6-7 years old. I saw them on TV, so she inspired me. I wanted to be like her so I worked as hard as I could to get here. She’s very much of an inspiration for me. And also as a person she is very special. Humble, generous, sweet, nice, she’s amazing!

And now touring together is just amazing. We have lots of fun together; it’s great in every way. It’s hard to express in a different way, it’s awesome!

You mentioned that you bring in artists from the United States to play with your band Karavan, and you are now touring with Marie. Are there any other bands or musicians you’d like to play with?

Tricky question! I’d really love to play with the Allman Brothers Band, John Fogerty, Pantera! Haha! I like so many bands so it’s hard to choose.

And last but not least, what are your plans for the next years?

Besides the tours that I mentioned I will just keep on working very hard with my bands. That’s the plan for the next years! Music 100%.

After thanking him for his time, Jokke rushes to have dinner the band and crew and then to deliver one of the best concerts of the tour so far!

Marie’s tour: Halmstad, 21st March #11

Halmstad was cooking almost at the same temperature as Gothenburg! What a great show and what a great audience again!

Since the venue was changed from Halmstad Arena to Halmstad Theater, a much smaller place, everyone who bought the tickets already the first day they went on sale in October was worrying about the seats, how the organizers would solve this issue. We hoped for not sitting in the 15th row if we had a ticket for the 1st row, however, the organizers tried to assure us that it wouldn’t be the case. We were still not sure about how it could work, until we actually got into the theater and saw that they renumbered the seats, so everyone could be satisfied with the new seats.

In the audience – besides many Roxers from abroad (Argentina, Brazil, Japan, Spain, Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria, Denmark, etc.)there were Göran Fritzon (from Gyllene Tider) and Jan-Owe Wikström (Hallandsposten; author of the Alla tiders Gyllene Tider book among others). We missed 1 big Roxer though, but we hope for his appearance at least in the crowd at a future concert. Per, you must go and see Ms Effe! She’s awesome! But you know that.

Some of us met Marie and the band when they arrived to Halmstad and they were all smiles already then. We were excited to see them on stage again. Before the show, when almost everyone found their places, a girl from the crew came and distributed some signed Marie cards (the one you could get if you pre-ordered her album Nu!) to the fans in the front rows. It was very nice. Thanks a lot for that!

MF_Halmstad_03And the show began. Should I mention Marie was barefoot? Now it’s quite evident she performs like that and we just love it.

After the acoustic Så stilla så långsamt we just jumped up from our seats and so did almost the whole audience, so the fab intro of Kom vila hos mig led us to a great party this time again. Halmstad crowd was almost as cooperative as the one in Gothenburg. Marie mentioned it already at this song how fantastic the audience is. She kept the acting she did in Gothenburg during Bara för en dag. So lovely! The bridge between Det regnar igen and Sista sommarens vals is still something fabulous. Ber bara en gång brought the party feeling again, but we were sitting, just clapping and dancing while sitting. At Sparvöga Marie mentioned it’s her favourite song and it sounded amazing this time, too. During Ett hus vid havet a seagull flew to the wrong place, but otherwise the performance was fantastic. Still so heart-warming how Marie and Jokke are performing it together. Then came the 2 most touching songs, Ett bord i solen and Så skimrande var aldrig havet. Marie’s facial expressions and how she feels these songs were again undescribable. Ännu doftar kärlek made the audience sing along. Not too loud, but you could hear more people were singing out loud than before. Party time again AND this time the audience stayed standing also after Så länge det lyser mittemot, so we were still dancing during Om du såg mig nu and of course during Efter stormen. Wow! THAT was a party! By the end of the tour there might be a concert where no one is sitting, but standing during the whole show. Before ES, Marie thanked the Roxette fans in English for being there. She got a loud response from the fans. Some fans also shouted ”I love you, Marie!” several times and they got a reply from Marie: ”I love you, too!” The party at the end of Den sjunde vågen when Marie already went off the stage (helped by MNS) was so intensive that even Christoffer’s hat fell off his head.

During the break we didn’t sit down, were clapping and standing all the time, waiting for Marie to come back. And she came back, of course. Micke was helping her again to find her place at the mic stand. The party went on with Mellan sommar och höst, then came Den bästa dagen. Before the closing song, Tro, Marie thanked in Swedish for all the energy she gets from the crowd. It means a lot to her. And it means a lot to us. It’s really fantastic to see her reactions, how she loves the active audience. One can see the whole band enjoys it much more when the crowd makes some noise. Even Surjo was acting more tonight, clapping and dancing a bit in the background and Micke was playing the keyboards many times standing and dancing more than how I could see them before.

 

MF_Halmstad_heart

 

At the end of the concert, a red heart was back. This time there wasn’t ”Tack!” written on it, but it was a heart-shaped pillow Marie got from a fan, Nikolett. That’s what you can see on the picture here.

Halmstad audience was really fab, joining us whenever we stood up and clapping with us to the rhythm. I loved the reactions of some older Swedish people behind me. They were happy about being part of a crowd like this and they were smiling all the time.

 

 

After the show Marie came out and gave some autographs. We also met Pelle and Chris. Chris said it really makes a difference to them when we are there. He said his favourite concert so far was Gothenburg and also Växjö, but tonight’s Halmstad show was very close to them. Chris asked us if we know the guitarist of Gyllene Tider… Of course we know! Pelle and Chris said MP (Mats MP Persson) was playing at a place not too far from the theater, so if we want to see him, we should go there. Some of us went there and yes, MP was playing with a band. They were covering e.g. Bryan Adams: Summer of 69 and we were in time for hearing their cover of Tylö Sun from Gyllene Tider. Per’s voice was definitely missing, but otherwise MP’s playing was great. I had a chance to talk to him a bit and he said they play together with this band once a month. He seemed to feel more comfortable with this cozy set up on stage than with Gyllene Tider. He agreed. This ”after-party” was a great closure of tonight.

Marie and the band are in Karlstad tomorrow. Have fun, everyone and make some noise there, too!

Comments
According to some fans who were at this concert, Marie and the band were amazing again and Marie’s vocals were incredible.

She also talked quite a lot, even some English words found it’s place. When Marie was telling that they would play many of her old songs, ‘of course’.

This time what was so so was the audience. The few fans didn’t manage this time to inspire the Swedes to stand up and have fun. Just a tip to those fans who may feel weird standing up with everybody else next to you sitting. Just do it!

As you may have read, snow has arrived to the center/northern part of Sweden, but a few fans decided to wait for Marie despite the cold. And they were lucky! Marie stopped by and chatted for some minutes with them.

Next concert is on Friday in Halmstad. Get ready to make lots of noise!

What a blast we had today! Again!
The audience (the front rows may be to blame…) stood up already with the first chords of Kom vila hos mig and that was the beginning of the big party!
There were many international fans this time, probably the concert with most of us so far. And all our clapping and smiles were returned to us with a huge wave of fun and amazing music and singing from Marie and the band which blown us completely away.
There were some amazing guitar solos by Chris and Jokke and some great bass groovy parts as well. Micke couldn’t stay seated all the time and Pelle had fun as well and delighted us with some strong beats.
Marie’s voice and singing left me with my mouth open more than usual today. I had the feeling she tried more things and did some different singing here and there. I can just say I am so happy I am going to so many shows. It’s so much fun and simply a joy to see Marie and the band like this.
The big smile on my face has to last now for about three weeks until Sthlm. Heeeeelp!
We interviewed Chris and Surjo today so… stay tuned. The 3 interviews will be up soon.
