Per Gessle’s Sommartider wines get promoted

Vinkompassen has just shared an advertisement of Sommartider wines from The Per Gessle Selection. More than that, if you are in Sweden and you are among the first 200 who order a case of 12 bottles from the deliciously refreshing Sommartider rosé or the summery Sommartider white, you get a personal greeting from Per himself. If anyone of you is getting that personal greeting, let us know what it is – if it’s not too personal. ;)

Chat with Per Gessle on Aftonbladet

Per Gessle chatted with the readers of Aftonbladet.se yesterday afternoon. Here is the link to the full chat transcript.

And here some of the questions and answers summarized and translated into English (or not, since some were placed and answered in English):

Chefi: Any concerts in Sweden this year?

Per: No, they already played in Göteborg, Stockholm and Malmö last year, so time to take a little break. Nearest place: Copenhagen. (Except for the Orifame corporate show).

Aaryn: When are the USA tour dates being announced?

Per: Hi Aaryn. This month we hope. Some logistics have to be sorted out first, that’s it!

Mike: Chance to see Gyllene Tider on tour again?

Per: Sure! Just have to find the right time.

Beatriz: Per, I’ve been fan since I was a kid..I was in your last concerts (Madrid and Barcelona) in Spain, how does it feel to see that crowd screaming and jumping even without any kind of promotion? Cheers! Beatriz

Per: Hi Beatriz. We have the greatest fans on the planet! Without you guys this tour wouldn’t have been possible. Cheers!

Frida: Do you recognise the fans who go to many of your concerts?

Per: sure! Many belong to the “family”, some also come to different continents with us. It’s great to have them around.

“It’s Possible” is record of the week at BBC Radio 2!

It was just per accident that we learned Roxette’s Travelling is “Record of the Week” on BBC Radio 2 in the UK. That means the single is getting special daily airplay. The website points to the single release on March 16. Let’s hope this promotion opportunity does more for the new single in the UK than it did for She’s Got Nothing On a year ago!

PS. Note that they misspelled the name to “It’s Impossible”. ;)

Update: Actually they write “Release date: 16 April”, not March. A physical UK release on the horizon?

Get prepared! Travelling Promo starting

With less than 2 weeks until the Travelling album launch, some promotion is kicking in. Roxette just got a new style for their iTunes homepage, where you can pre-oder the album:

Meanwhile we heard reports that TV spots for the first single It’s Possible started to air on German TV channel ProSieben. A result of EMI Germany’s ongoing label cooperation for Roxette.

TV Promotion in the works!

It looks like Roxette will promote the new album on the Swiss TV show “Benissimo“‘s 100th anniversary. The show will be aired March 24, 20:05 CET. Probably a sign for more TV appearances to come, right?

There will be sights of Roxette on German TV with no doubt since TRAVELLING will be released under the same label/TV channel cooperation as CHARM SCHOOL, which was promoted with numerous TV spots.

Thanks to Cathérine Frei and Roxette Café for finding out!

Roxette nominated for “Echo” award in Germany

Roxette are nominated for the German Echo award with their album “Charm School”. The category Roxette is nominated is called “Gruppe International Rock / Pop” – best international Rock/Pop group.  The award is really important in Germany, as much important as the Grammys in the US. There’s not a jury choosing the winner. The sales charts decide the nominees and in the end – the winner.

On the Wikipedia site it says (used Google translate):

The ranking of the winners in most categories results from the added up weeks results of the Media Control sales charts in February of one year to January of the following year. This has the consequence that the absolute sales figures – should be – distributed over the entire year. This easy distortion of the results is possible. Good sales of the artists who achieve over longer periods (no weekly current top positions in the charts) good sales results will be penalized. [1] In some categories (lifetime achievement and special rates) are the winners selected by a jury, the most successful live act is nationally determined via online voting.

The awarding will take place on March 22th in Berlin. The show will be broadcast the same evening. Other nominees are Coldplay, Sunrise Avenue, Snow Patrol and Superheavy.

Our reader Dennis informs that Roxette have been nominated several times before:

According to wikipedia Roxette were nominated for the ECHO award in the categorie “best international group” at least in the years 1992, 1993 & 1995 – (For the year 1994 no nominations were listed, but as Roxette had no new album out the year before, I guess they weren’t nominated).

Thanks for letting us know.
