Per and his umbrella

I thought about posting it here and was doubtful. But in the end we aren’t a news page and some bits and pieces about nothing here and then can be funny, too. I just found a young woman’s blog who is writing about Bruce Springsteen’s concert and Per Gessle’s umbrella. Even if it’s only two sentences, enjoy: Behindblueeyes

Breakfast with Christoffer and Magnus- interview exclusive for ROxette.ro!

Roxette.ro presents an interview made by the fans for the fans. Taken from the website:

We had a breakfast with two members  of Per’s band which tour with him in Party Crasher tour. This happened in Prague the day after the concert. We spent an hour and a half in the company of Christoffer and Magnus; Pelle was there but he didn’t participate at the interview, we just ran into him there at the restaurant. You can see all the pictures from the interview at the Gallery section in the left menu, or just click HERE. They clarified some of the music industry aspects, they gave us details about Per that we didn’t knew. We smiled all the time, we walked very happy and enthusiasts from that meeting. We have prepared only 15 questions for the interview , but they were so kind to explain to us what is like to tour with Per. We hope you like it.
