As we informed yesterday, Roxette is the biggest selling artist in Israel at the moment. As one of promotional activities for the coming Tel Aviv concert, Per Gessle was interviewed by Israeli TV2 – you don’t have to practice your Hebrew this time as the interview is in English, only subtitled 🙂
Thanks to Shelly Frida Paker.
As reported some time ago, Roxette will perform tonight at “Der Deutsche Radiopreis” gala in Hamburg, Germany. Marie & Per have landed in Germany and acts are having soundchecks right now.
What we still don’t know is if Roxette will perform playback, live, singback or whatever. Per said they “prepared” music for this event some days ago, whatever that means. German radio channel “NDR 2″– part of the organizers – told their listeners today, that Roxette will perform “She’s Got Nothing On” additionally to the announced “Speak To Me” stage premiere.
The show will start at 20:05 European Summer time and will be broadcasted live on 50 (!) German radio stations and via video stream on the official website www.deutscher-radiopreis.de. They started posting backstage videos already!
6 regional TV stations will broadcast the gala all over Germany, with “NDR Fernsehen” being the first on 22:00 CEST.

If you know basics of Swedish, you will enjoy this interview with both Marie and Per a lot. If you do not get a word they saying, then you can still enjoy picture – which are pretty cool – Marie in sauna and boxing ring or Per driving his car and playing piano.
Thanks to Evgeny Perekopskiy for finding this out.

This evening, German channel RTL will have Roxette once again on their TV show “Die ultimative Chart Show”. Roxette is seen performing (playback) their evergreen “The Look”, recorded in February when they also performed the current single “She’s got nothing on (but the radio)” for another episode. Motto of tonight’s show is “the most productive acts of all times”, broadcasting starts at 21:15 EST.
The Chart Show had between 3 and 3.5 million viewers in the last season. Normally the episodes get broadcasted again after some months or even years. The show’s concept is a song countdown with videoclips based on the German charts/sales according to the motto. Some celebrities are talking and commenting the songs on a couch, while a couple of show acts perform on stage.
See the video of Roxette’s “She’s Got Nothing On” performance here!

Update: Roxette made #31 at the countdown, which was based on the number of singles on the German charts. Marie and Per had 33 hits. Watch the whole part (6:30) about Roxette incl. a short interview and the performance here:
A quick reminder – tonight Roxette will perform “She’s Got Nothing On” at the boxing fight Vitali Klitschko vs Oldanier Solis, which takes place in Lanxess Arena in Cologne. We just got to know that the fight is being broadcasted to not less than 120 countries (!).
Besides RTL – also on internet stream, where Roxette’s performance will be surely shown, here you can see a list of channels or websites which seem to broadcast the fight tonight and hopefully Roxette’s performance!
