Per posted a message on Twitter in which he informed which cities will be included in the Party Crasher live LP/CD. Thanks to that we know that some live songs from Cologne, London, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Stockholm#2, Warsaw, Halmstad and Munich will be released.
Crashroxer (@ R2R forum) found this interesting photo somewhere over the internet. It was most likely taken in December 2008 in Gothenburg before or after Stjärnklart show.
On July 8, 1992 Roxette played one concert on theirs Summer Joyride ’92 European Tour on Ice Stadium in Budapest, Hungary. This gig was recorded by a preson who was sitting in the audiance. Now, thanks to Hungarian fans at Roxvideo.uw.hu, we are able to download the whole bootleg show.
Try to download just one file in a time or add the download links to a download manager (such as FlashGet or any other of your preference).
Fading like a flower
Church of your heart
Spending my time
The heart shaped sea
Knockin’ on every door
The big L.
Things will never be the same again
It must have been love
Dressed for success
How do you do
(Do you get) Excited?
Listen to your heart
Thanks to bianca and sweepi (@ R2R forum) for informations.
Here are five photos of Roxette taken in Amsterdam on May 6 just before the concert.
Thanks to crashroxer.
Marie Fredriksson and Mikael Bolyos attended on a June 18 gala at Stadshuset where Crown Princess Victoria was handing out this year’s prizes from the Marianne and Sigvard Bernadotte Artist Fund. Agnetha Fältskog of ABBA was also among the other guests.
It is not confirmed if Marie performed there or not.
Thanks to Evgeny Perekopskiy (Ivanycz @ R2R) we are able to listen to a quite old Mikael Bolyos’ song. It was “sweet 1983”, Jonas Isacsson on guitar, Erik Häusler on saxophone and Mikael Bolyos on keyboards, programming & vocal. The song is called “Aldrig mer” which means “Never again”.
If you know anything more about this song e.g. if it was released and where, feel free and inform us.
Aldrig mer, aldrig mer ska jag va’ med en annan kvinna
Aldrig mer, aldrig mer ska jag överge dig
Aldrig mer, aldrig mer ska du ur mitt liv få försvinna
Aldrig mer, aldrig mer
Jag och du skönast, det gräset är grönast och himlen blå
Man kan ju tycka att det låter som lycka och väl kom
När alla tycker förseende tekniken bedrar min sinne
Blir de skivor min tidsfördrivor
Jag svär att alltid va dig trogen
Aldrig mer, aldrig mer…
Ville ju leva som Adam och Eva i paradis
Ha varann och älska oss fram vi var oskuld
Men om du känner att kärleken vänder och går sin vik
Kom då till mig jag tröstar dig och svär
att alltid va’ dig trogen
Om du tror de ska fånga mig, kan du spara dina tvivel
För jag vet att jag älskar dig och vill alltid vara nära dig
Aldrig mer, aldrig mer…
Thanks to Gyllene Tjej for writing down the lyrics and, of course, thanks to Mikael B. for music.
According to Sydsvenskan’s article and web report, Christoffer Lundqvist, the man behind Per Gessle’s latest albums, is currently working on a new cd with Mulle kindergarten’s children’s choir from Lund in Scania. All lyrics were written by children themselves and the album will be released just before Christmas. All profits will be transferred to help “Sponsor a child” organisation in Peru.
On the other hand, Per has informed us today that Christoffer is busy mixing the live double LP and the DVD (Live from Stockholm). It will be two different things, so most likely there will not be any song from May 9th on the live album.
Thanks to Lionel for information.
Arnaldo Mariano Suarez from Argentina has prepared a new artwork for Sirius broadcasting of Per Gessle’s London gig. Thanks a lot.
After the bootleg from Amsterdam and the excellent Nordic Rox London gig we get a new concert from Party Crasher Tour. This time is audio recording from beautful Prague at Lucerna Hall on April 23rd, 2009.
Yeeehaaa! What a night! What a show! The Prague-gig became a memory we will never forget! Beautiful hall (Bowie and Kraftwerk have been there!!!) and we certainly rocked our asses off together with the mighty crowd. Thanx for singing along and making us sweat!!!! See ya next time, dear Prague!!!!!!
Thanks to Martina Letochova and Romanian fans at ROxette.ro.

According to this little ‘interview’, Marie will not release solo album this year. “Roxette is high priority right now“, said Marie.
After two weeks being a candidate to enter the charts, yesterday was finally the day for “The Party Pleaser” and entered at number 9.
Svensktoppen is a radio show which runs on P4 on Sundays.
I guess this is going to be the most uninteresting you’ve read here, but.. just gotta write it down. I must say I like Twitter more and more. I follow some “VIPS” because I like what they do (either music or TV shows or music) and I feel like one can get to know another side of these people which isn’t the image we get from interviews, magazine articles and so on. And one of these is of course Per Gessle. He surprised me a couple of times with his tweets. Once he commented on Keith Urban, I think he said he met him in LA.. and added he has a beautiful wife. I think that was the first time I hear/read Per comment about a woman more than just about her voice. Of course, besides his songs about love and sex and passion and love and Åsa.
Yesterday he posted “Don’t forget to vote in the EU-election, all you Europeans!” – I think, as far as my brain can recall, it’s the first time I hear Per somehow.. get involved in elections/politics. On May 30th he posted “EU-election. Just voted. A great opportunity to take a stand.”
As I said, I like Twitter! And as I said, just a random post.
And don’t forget to vote! If you don’t, then don’t complain about the results 🙂
