SVT has just shared a teaser (1m 36s long) of the upcoming Rox documentary called “IT ALL BEGINS WHERE IT ENDS”. Click here and enjoy!
Per says the documentary “will be subtitled for each country”.
For those who are eagerly waiting for Christmas gifts – there will be a big one from Roxette. You just have to live in Sweden to watch the public channel SVT on Wednesday, December 26th at 10:30pm for the shortened version of the Roxette documentary which will be – HOPEFULLY – out on the DVD next year. If you are living abroad, we guess it will be available in a free-of-charge VOD service on the website later that week. At this point we do not know if the documentary is in English or Swedish.
Additionally – as Roxette Cafe found out – January 2, 2013 at 10:30pm SVT 1 will air a Roxette concert compiled from the 2011-2012 world tour!
We’re keeping our fingers crossed the Gyllene Tider casus won’t be repeated this time…*
Here’s the short synopsis translated by Patricia Peres:
After Marie Fredriksson suffered from a brain tumor in 2002 it was a long way to recovery, and no one could have imagined that Roxette almost ten years later would be revived and go on a world tour again. What started with six planned gigs became a triumphal march around the world that lasted over 19 months. We follow Per, Marie and the band in a documentary about their return, the world tour, work in the studio, fantastic and fanatic fans worldwide with wonderful stories about how Roxette affected their lives and how they live with Roxette’s music.
* GT promised to release DVD with a documentary back in 2004, but firstly they showed the shortened version of the programme on TV and then the DVD was moved in time and with time cancelled…
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.
Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle (=Roxette) were interviewed at Nyhetsmorgon. The interview is now online.
You can find a translation in English on Roxette.ro.
Per will be in the TV studio for an interview as well. Normally the show is available online some hours after the TV broadcast.
Looks like the video premiere of It’s Possible + PG live interview in the studiosofa will be the real deal at Nyhetsmorgon, Swedish TV4 this Saturday at 10.30 am. Swell.
Roxette’s performance at Swiss SF1 show Benissimo can now be found on the Benissimo website (starts at about 2:00:00) or youtube (see below). Roxette performed “It’s Possible” in which seems to be the only TV performance to promote “Travelling”.
There was also a short interview on SF1 Glanz & Gloria
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!
