Yes, at least it seems so. Busses with this kind of congratulations drove through Halmstad in May 2009 just before Per Gessle’s gig in Sporthallen.
Thanks to Danyela Etchart for picture.
Per posted a message on Twitter in which he informed which cities will be included in the Party Crasher live LP/CD. Thanks to that we know that some live songs from Cologne, London, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Stockholm#2, Warsaw, Halmstad and Munich will be released.
According to Sydsvenskan’s article and web report, Christoffer Lundqvist, the man behind Per Gessle’s latest albums, is currently working on a new cd with Mulle kindergarten’s children’s choir from Lund in Scania. All lyrics were written by children themselves and the album will be released just before Christmas. All profits will be transferred to help “Sponsor a child” organisation in Peru.
On the other hand, Per has informed us today that Christoffer is busy mixing the live double LP and the DVD (Live from Stockholm). It will be two different things, so most likely there will not be any song from May 9th on the live album.
Thanks to Lionel for information.
Arnaldo Mariano Suarez from Argentina has prepared a new artwork for Sirius broadcasting of Per Gessle’s London gig. Thanks a lot.
After the bootleg from Amsterdam and the excellent Nordic Rox London gig we get a new concert from Party Crasher Tour. This time is audio recording from beautful Prague at Lucerna Hall on April 23rd, 2009.
Yeeehaaa! What a night! What a show! The Prague-gig became a memory we will never forget! Beautiful hall (Bowie and Kraftwerk have been there!!!) and we certainly rocked our asses off together with the mighty crowd. Thanx for singing along and making us sweat!!!! See ya next time, dear Prague!!!!!!
Thanks to Martina Letochova and Romanian fans at ROxette.ro.

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

Thanks to Shirley!
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. You can download all the interview here: http://roxette.t2.sk/audio/WS330049.WMA
