Roxette at ZDF report

Update: The report is now available at ZDF Mediathek! Choose your media play and klick “Übernehmen”.

As you’d guess they tell the story we already know, but feature some interview scenes from the press conference as well.

Something about comments and new users

Just wanted to clarify one thing about comments. Only registered users are allowed to comment. But: you can only comment after your first comment has been “approved”. Once this first comment from you is approved, then you can add as many comments as you want without any delay. That’s why some comments are not shown inmediately.

Enjoy!

German radio station HR3 reports from the NOTP press conference.

Impressions she got:

– The HR3 reporter was the first to interview Roxette after the announcement, to warm them up for two following TV interviews.
– Marie looked beautiful but at the same time you can tell she was seriously ill. She needs a bit of help for stairs etc.
– She often leaned on Per for comfort, was rather silent but radiated happiness.
– The most moving interview the reporter ever did.
– Per promised new songs, joked to write them in the waiting times on tour.
– Roxette will play five songs at NOTP.
– Marie is glad to make a slow way back to the stage this way.

You can listen to this report (in german) at the station’s website: HR3

Let’s bring Marie on stage in Stockholm!

As we heard yesterday Marie Fredriksson is going to be on stage with Per Gessle in Amsterdam tomorrow. But a lot of people already got tickets for the Stockholm show and expected Marie to show up there.
Now it doesn’t really look like that and with this group we want her to know that we want to see her in Stockholm as well. Now that Roxette are back and a great fall is to come we want to get excited already! So it’s kind of a petition to tell Marie that we want her and we need her and we love her. And that we love Roxette, of course.
Let us show our support and bring Marie on stage in Stockholm, too! For that reason I opened a new group in Facebook called  “Marie: Join Per on stage in Stockholm, too”.
Join and tell your friends!

The daily “Mensch, Otto” series will interview Dirk Hohmeyer, german NOTP tour manager, give information about the concert series and this years guests. Maybe it already contains excerpts from the press conference feat. Roxette…

Roxette in Barcelona 2001

Completing the good news on a sunny day I can offer you a nice audio recording of the 2001 Room Service show in Barcelona. I didn’t know it and maybe some of you didn’t, too. Enjoy it!

Enjoy it and get ready for the Proms!
Thanks to neoangelus from the German forum for sharing this beauty with us!

Roxette are back

Finally confirmed: Roxette are back. Marie Fredriksson will perform with Per Gessle on his concert in Amsterdam on wednesday.

….“Tomorrow, at an official press conference in Belgium, they will announce that Marie has recovered from the illness that forced them to cancel their scheduled appearance in 2002. Seven years later,  Roxette will finally make good on that previous commitment and perform at this year’s series of Night of the Proms concerts to be held in Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands later this year.”

More NOTP

As Japeke found out and posted in the Run2Roxette Forum, Roxette will indeed be part of the Nokia Night of the Proms.
This is the way Japeke confirmed the news we already believed in since two weeks now:

If you go to www.notp.com, and then click on germany, netherlands or belgium (Antwerp), just click on program.
If you rightclick on a photo of a artist, you get a specific adress, like http://www.notp.com/files/nl/programma/2009/nlnotp_sharondenadel2.jpg.

Try what you get if you replace ‘sharondenadel2’ by ‘roxette’, so you get http://www.notp.com/files/nl/programma/2009/nlnotp_roxette.jpg: A picture of roxette in the folder of the artists which will perform in 2009!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It doesn’t work for charleroi, france and Spain, but it does for Antwerp, Netherlands, and Germany. So I would say: START BUYING TICKETS Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
