Media report about Roxette’s comeback – part II

Big interview with Per, 2 new Roxette tracks

There’s a big interview with Per on www.gessle.com, mainly about the Party Crasher tour experiences. The band members promised each other to let this tour literary “never end”. Per will fly to NYC to get an US release for the album.

Today I asked Per on twitter if Roxette aim for a whole album or just some tracks. He responded “2 tracks. that’s it for now.” Not exactly the answer I dreamed of! But we’ll see how it continues. Wonder how these songs will be released…

Update: The interview was moved to The Daily Roxette.

Party Crasher-DVD at the end of summer

According to Per Gessle, the Party Crasher-tour DVD will be released at the end of summer all over Europe and contain about 100 home videos. Per also tells that several live tapes from European shows exist and they (Christoffer and Per) are listening to them these days. Furthermore the audio recordings are supposed to come as a live CD in a package with the DVD.

Amsterdam bootleg

pg2009-05-06_front A Dutch fan, Joost, recorded Per Gessle’s Amsterdam gig from the 6th of May with Marie Fredriksson as a special guest and prepared a wonderful cover for this bootleg. The Brazilian Roxette site published an mp3 compressed rip of the recording which you can download following the link below:

Or you can contact Joost for the original non-compressed audio files at www.dutchtaper.com. You can download the cover made by Joost here as well.

Together we crashed the party!

Two days have passed and still the feeling of the Party Crasher tour is there. None of all Rox and related tours I have joined can compare with this one. It was special for several reasons. It was special because it was a club tour. I guess none of the concerts outside Sweden was sold out and that made it even more special. It felt like that really those people and fans who really cared joined and crashed the party. Fans who waited for this possibility for years and who didn’t care if it was sold out or not. I always dreamed of seeing Roxette live in a club. Now at least half of the dream came true. And it feels like even Per and the band enjoyed this little tour that left us so delighted and longing for more. As Per wrote on Twitter it finally makes sense. It’s about the music, getting people together who share a passion, having fun together from the first to the last minute.

This tour was special because people finally got over some resentments. Differences between the fans of all the different countries didn’t matter in most of the cases. Ok, here and there reports of pushy Germans or pushy Spaniards popped up but nearly everywhere people finally talked to each other, with each other and even shared an evening together in Stockholm after the first gig at the Cirkus. Finally we can have fun together, just as it needs to be. Small venues, all the die-hard fans – yeah, we finally see what really matters. I hope we can preserve this feeling until NOTP. It was so nice to get to know other fans from other countries and it’s so important to talk TO each other not just ABOUT each other. Keep that, guys!

Press writing about the Amsterdam surprise

Especially Swedish press published some nice articles about last night’s big surprise in Amsterdam. Some excerpts:

Per about Marie’s reaction afterwards: “She was completely overwhelmed by the response we got. The audience had a big smile on their faces and the whole room had goosebumps”.
There’s also rumours about another performance by Marie in Stockholm, but it’s not decided yet. Join here, if you want to get Marie to conquer the stage in Stockholm!

Furthermore, as we learned before, Marie and Per are going to record new songs in autumn (take your time guys, we want GOOD songs, please no more OW if possible) but it’s not sure how and when they are going to be released.
