Comment from Per Gessle
Thanx Caracas for a beautiful evening! We had a blast playing under the dark blue sky!!! And thanx for singing along and making us feel like the biggest band on earth!
Couldn’t play any songs from Travelling due to the fact that the soundcheck got cancelled! Nevertheless, the band is an unstoppable monster right now and kicked ass even after a five week break (that’s what being on the road for more than a year does to you…)! Had some problems with the Chinese customs leaving Shanghai, lots of things were missing when our equipment arrived in Venezuela. Guitar stuff, a computer, all Marie’s jewellery, even Pelle’s sneakers……. Thanx for coming to the show, dear Venezuela-fans, see you soon we’re sure…. one way or another!!!! Luv, P&M&Co

The first concert during this year’s Latin American’s leg is schedules for tomorrow, April 17. Meanwhile extensive promotion takes place – including billboards in the streets of e.g. Cracas and Rosario, Argentina.
Thanks to Benke for photos.
Some UK fans couldn’t believe their eyes today when they saw an ad on TV promoting the tour.
You can watch it here:
The Guardian also published an article about Roxette.
Thanks Ally for the ad.
HOLLYWOOD, Calif., April 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/
Three years after their 2009 comeback, Swedish pop phenomenon Roxette are hotter than they’ve been since their early ’90s heyday. Roxette’s world tour is in full swing with almost one million concert tickets sold since the tour kicked off a year ago at the Tatneft Arena in Russian Kazan. On top of that, another million Roxette records have been added to the already dizzying 70 million they’ve sold over the years.
So far the band has played more than 85 shows in more than 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, to be released digitally in the U.S. on June 5 by Capitol/EMI.
The idea has been to tap into all the positive energy that has boosted the band during this dazzling trip, and channel it into 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 haven’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 in 2012. There’s more to come.

The news seem to have been circulating for a few days now. It is however still not confirmed at this point.
We have received some messages from fans indicating that Roxette are to play at Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto on August 30, 2012. But again, as mentioned above, the date is still not confirmed and the information we could find was published on ticket reseller websites.
We will post the official information and the link to the official ticket seller when we receive it from Live Nation. For now we can only recommend to wait a little bit and avoid super expensive reseller websites.
