Miedy’s report from Jakarta

Take A Listen To Your Heart, Roxette…

Roxette fans in Jakarta are really in a good treat at the last night concert in MEIS Ancol, Jakarta, Indonesia. Not only they get to see Roxette performed for the first time after 17 years, but they got the chance to enjoy the concert by the beautiful beach of Ancol in Jakarta, Indonesia. The location of the concert was taken place at one of the most famous location in Jakarta. It has amusement park, mall, and of course the very beautiful view of an Ancol beach. Roxette’s concert itselt taken place inside the mall. The building itself was still under construction in some part. An Indonesian Roxer informed me that Roxette was actually the first band ever to perform there. When you entered the location, you could tell it’s already has Roxette athmosphere everywhere. At some restaurants they even had Roxette pictures on their menu. All over the place you can hear songs from Charm School were playing over and over again.

The fans started to arrived by 3 pm, but the security informed us that the gate won’t be opened until 6 pm, the show itself supposely begin at 8 pm. Many fans spent their time hang out around the mall and of course enjoying the warm breeze by the beach.

When the gate finally opened around 6 pm, the fans go straight inside the building. We still had to wait for more than twohours before Marie, Per and the band entered the stage. Before the concert, five lucky fans got a chance to meet Marie and Per. They were given photograph of Roxette which later signed by Marie and Per. To Indonesian fans, this is probably likeonce in a lifetime experience.The majority of the fans had never even seen Roxette live before and even today we only get one date. It was quite ironic because many Roxette’s songs from Look Sharp to Room Service were topped the chart.There were some non singles song that was quite famous here too, such us So Far Away. No wonder, at the middle of the concert, a fan yelled,”please play So Far Away.”

The crowd went crazy when Marie and Per first entered the stage. They both looking good in white jackets. The band looked fantastic as well. It felt like a dream to see them here in Indoesia. Of course when Marie screamed “Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!” at the beginning of the song, it started to feel real that Roxette was really on a stage in front us now and now they were singing “Dressed For Success”.

I myself was continuesly amazed by Marie. This is my 7th time seeing her on stage, and she continues to impress me all the time. I felt like I was back in time. Not only that she looked younger (which is not really that important, but it’s hard to ignore that), She sings better than ever and I am confident to say that this is her BEST performance yet. I hate to make comparison to the “now” Marie and “then” Marie, because I always thought that was a bit unfair, but it’s hard not to do when you see the progress she made these last few years.

I also surprised with the new side of Marie that I never know before. I didn’t know she had another hidden talent. Not only she’s a brilliant singer, but she’s a brilliant comedian! She was so expressive, fun, warm and FUNNY! When I saw her in Argentina last year, I was so amazed by the fact she was moved around more and more on the stage. This time it got even better. She was dancing around, joking around and having TONS of fun. I later notice that there’s a spot on a stage that she loved to go back to over and over again. She kept on waving to the same lucky person in the crowd from that spot. As a huge Marie fan I started to get jealous, because I wanted her to wave and smile at me. Later I learned that the lucky person who manage to get all her attentions was a 9 year old boy who went to the concert with his parents.

During the show, you could tell the confidence in her face. When she messed up the lyrics, she didn’t looked panic but instead she kept on singing and improvising, just like Marie we always know. I am almost sure that many actually didn’t realize that the lyrics were “changed” a bit by her, that’s how good she was. I think only die hard fans would tell, and even then we didn’t mind.

But the highlights of the evening was when she singing “Perfect Day”. This is the best version so far. When she was done, the crowd gave her applaud and a fan said, “what a voice.”

And Per? The crowd cheered him the most when he spoke some Indonesian words like “Apa Kabar” (How Are You) and “Terima Kasih” (Thank You). Per, if you read this, your pronounciations are perfect. Maybe it’s about time to release “Balada di Indonesia”? Just kidding…

Per seemed having good times playing and singing, but what can I say, he was always that brilliant. Another hightlight of the evening is Christoffer Lundquist. The crowd went crazy when he played “Nona Manis Siapa Yang Punya”, a famous Indonesian old song. At the beginning, many didn’t realize what he was trying to play, probably because wemwouldn’t ever guess that he’d do that, but when it was finally clear, the crowd went to sing a long.

Even some Some not that familiar songs to Indonesian crowd, like 7twenty7 and She’s Got Nothing On, still got tons of applaud. Especially, because it sounds rocking live. When they’re on stage, Roxette is actually a ROCK band! A friend of mine was so impressed with Stars. She loved it so much better than the album version.

Of course the song that many waited the most is It Must Have Been Love, Spending My Time, Joyride and The Look. The crowd were sing a long so loud you almost couldn’t hear Roxette. Both Per and Marie looked so impressed with all the reactions. Before the encore, Per and Marie left a stage for just a little while, leaving the crowd who kept yelling “We want more! we want more!”. So,imagine when they back again on a stage, the crowd went crazy again.

When Listen To Your Heart started, another girl in the crowd said,”oh my god, this is the one I’ve been waiting the most.” Then she started to tape the whole thing with her camera phone. Unfortunately, at the end of Listen To Your Heart, Marie’s mic had stopped working, so we didn’t get to hear her blasting her powerful ending like she did in other concerts before. Many were disappointed, because you could tell from her expression, she was giving her all for that ending. Unfortunately the audio problem was unfixable, because they didn’t even performed Church of Your Heart. It’s sad that a supposedly a perfect
concert had to end up in that way. However, the crowd still stayed in their places hoping that Roxette would come back and performed again, it didn’t happen of course.

Anyway, despite that “tiny little problem”, the concert was amazing. Marie was in top shape, sings better than ever, Per was at his most relaxed and fun and the whole band were fantastic.

Later in Facebook, Per promised to comeback again in Jakarta. We do hope they keep their promise. They still need to finish Listen To Your Heart for us. I think we deserve it.

“It’s possible” lyrics

Got to grab a pen & paper
Got to write a tiny note to you
I can’t get you out of my system
… There’s something very difficult about you

It’s possible
When I get that feeling
It so revealing
It’s possible
When you’re givin’ that look
I just wanna oh-oh-oh!

People tell me all the wrong things
People tell me I don’t have a clue
There’s something in the air, I just know it!!!!!!
Like patches on the skin it stick like glue

It’s possible
When I get that feeling
It so revealing
It’s possible
When you’re givin’ that look
I just wanna oh-oh-oh!

The sound of your heartbeat
Promise so much
The sound of your heartbeat…”
Promise so much

Du du do do do do
Got to write a tiny note to you
Du do do do do do
There’s something very difficult about you

It’s possible
When I get that feeling
It’s so revealing
It’s possible when givin me that look
I just wanna oh oh oh

When I get that feeling Its so revealing
Its possible When you givin that look

I just wanna Oh Oh Oh
I just wanna Oh Oh Oh
I just wanna Oh Oh Oh

Press Release: Roxette back with new album “Travelling”

Here is the press release in English we got from Roxette’s management. 

A Swedish version is available too if you are interested.

Roxette back with new album ”Travelling”

and a taster: It’s possible!

Three years after their 2009 comeback, Swedish pop phenomenon Roxette are hotter than they’ve been since their early 90’s heydays.

Their world tour is in full swing with almost a million concert tickets sold since the tour kicked off in the Tatneft Arena in Russian Kazan a year ago. On top of that another million Roxette records has been added to the already dizzying 70 million that Roxette has sold over the years.

So far the band has played more than 85 shows in 30+ countries (and the trip continues—they don’t plan to rest until they’ve played 150 shows). But besides zigzagging between airports, arenas, hotels and meeting with fans from all over the world, the band also has found time to record their new album “Travelling”.

The idea has been to tap into all the positive energy that has boosted the band during this dazzling trip, and channel it to new Roxette music. In short, an album that just like 1992’s “Tourism” captures the feeling of a band on a roll—constantly on the move, snatching inspiration as they go; recording in hotel rooms, studios, at soundchecks and in concert.

The result is a fascinating musical postcard with 15 superb songs, most of which are new, some that are revisited classics and others being pearls that for various reasons hasn’t seen the light of day before. A tight and inspired band has gathered around a batch of Gessle tunes, where the relentless hit-maker again and again proves that his sense of melody and ability to surprise is still top-notch.

“It’s Possible” is the first taster from “Travelling” – 2 minutes and 34 seconds of sunny pop music that shows one of Roxette’s many sides 2012.  There’s more to come.

Release date “It’s Possible”: March 2nd.
Release date “Travelling”: March 23rd.

“It’s possible” – cover and duration

According to Play.com – the “It’s Possible (Version One Radio Edit)” with duration of 2min 35sec is to be released on Monday, March 4. The German radio show “Hey Music” on Radio Berlin informs that “It’s possible” lasts for 3min 22sec. We have no information at this point which information is correct.

The B-side of the first single will be T&A Demo of “It’s possible”.

Update: It turned out that correct duration is 2:34 for the first single, which makes it the shortest one leading single in the history of Roxette.

“It’s possible” – new Roxette single

German online shop Grooves-Inc informs that the first single off the TRAVELLING album will be “It’s possible”. The single will be released on the CD on March 16th – a week before the German premiere of the new album. Thanks to Lea Binias for finding out this information.

We were also informed by Aussie fans that the song was performed at the soundcheck in Perth on February 28 for the very first time, so the band is preparing to include it in the setlist.
