it’s the happy ending of a story that started with a mindblowing concert in cologne on 27.04.2009. we were so happy and enthusiastic after it that we put our energy into creating these posters of the show with our own pictures taken from the first row.

you can download them if you like from our romanian friends at roxette.ro and naturally we wanted Per to have them as well cause he was the reason and the catalyst of our creativity

Less stuff on “Gessle over Europe” DVD and some typos.

The Daily Roxette published an English version of Swedish press release regarding “Gessle over Europe” CD+DVD set. Thomas Evensson did also some scans of a promotional folder printed in Sweden. According to it, there are few changes in comparison to the preliminary informations. “C’mon” video as well as “Son of a plumber” and “Party crasher” eletronic promotional kits were removed from the frothcoming DVD. I assume it is related with DVD space limitations and will to have the best possible quality of the Cirkus concert.

It is worth noticing that two songs from Warsaw concert on a live CD was tagged as “Warszaw”, which is incorrect both in English and in Swedish. The incorrect name of Polish capital was also used in Per Gessle’s blog, so I suppose this was the reason why EMI did mistake there. This typo is visible in some webshops as well as on last.fm service. Fortunately, on the back cover of the album everything seems to be right.

Additionally, according to Lurirox at R2R forum German subtitles on DVD have few mistakes:
We have a special letter in German called “ß” – some kind of “ss”, but it’s wrong to use it instead of “ß”. You have to change the language of the keyboard to get the right letter and it seems to me as if the person who was responsible for the subtitles did not change it because all the time when a “ß” is needed there is a “ü” instead of it.

P.S. But still – I just can’t wait to watch it! 🙂

A place to visit: “On the beat” shop.

otbHave you ever thought about visiting the London shop in which Per Gessle and Anton Corbijn were in 2005 to take some photographs for the Man’s second solo album in English called “Son Of A Plumber”? If yes, remember “On the beat” name. Danyela Etchart was there in May 2009 while European “Party crasher tour” and wanted to share with us her story enriched with a clip and pics from that place.
