So today the rumours about Roxette participating as main act at Night of the Proms has been confirmed, at 17:05 sharp. You can find pictures on NOTP Facebook’s page.
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
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!
German radiostation “Bayern 3” will run a special show about the “Night Of The Proms” tonight. 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…
The show will run from 7:05 to 8:00 pm EST and is available via live stream (Live hören | Webcams). You can load past shows as podcasts (http://www.br-online.de/podcast/mp3-download/bayern3/mp3-download-podcast-mensch-otto.shtml).

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!
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.”

If you want to check which other German fans go to the shows, join this topic at the German forum.
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

I don’t know how you out there are feeling, but I feel like a teenager again. Ok, maybe not THAT extreme, but.. couldn’t sleep last night, can’t wait until tomorrow and Wednesday. I think I will cry. I think I would even cry now just with the thought…
Just had to get this out.
According to Stephan Bodewig, the administrator of the Nokia Night of the Proms-fanpage on which we found the hidden source code information that Roxette is part of the 2009 proms, Per Gessle was seen with Dirk Hohmeyer, the promoter and organizer of the German Proms. They apparently met at the day of Per’s concert in Munich.
Here are the links for the tickets again:
Bodewig still thinks that Per Gessle is doing the proms on his own as a solo artist and not with Marie as Roxette. But according to rumours that Marie will be in The Netherlands on wednesday (the day after the official NOTP press conference in Antwerpen) it’s most likely that it is indeed Roxette who will participate.
So we finally decided to go public with Roxetteblog.com
This website or blog was born from the idea of wanting to have all events and news happening around Roxette in one single place, as a sort of archive. In the last weeks, with Per Gessle’s tour and the rumours about Roxette, there’s been a lot going on. I’ve been regularly visiting 3 forums and 2-3 websites to get news, links to performances, pictures and so on and trying to keep track of all.. but I failed. I then started to collect all interesting links in “My Favourites”, but it soon became a mess and started to get lost. Excel lists didn’t help either.
So here’s where this website comes in. First I thought of doing it for myself, but then I thought it might help others as well. The idea is based on the microblogging such as Twitter. It’s about having the most information, all packed in one website. An archive if you want to call it like that. Easy to search, easy to access, simple but useful. As our logo says, don’t miss a Roxette & Co thing! Or don’t forget where you read or found this or that about Roxette & CO!
Kirsten aka Kiwein (DE) joined this project as soon as I told her about this idea (thx for the theme!). She runs the German fanpage and forum.
Tomos85 (PL), Tevensso (SE) and Abysmo (CZ) also joined us this weekend. We also count with the collaboration of Mixella (RO) from Roxette.ro.
We are still looking for collaborators, fans who are very active in the Rox community and who love to share links to news and information they find in the net. Would you like to join the project? Just contact us and we’ll talk about it. The only think we ask for is your active participation, notifying us about any interesting links. As you can see in the existing articles, they don’t have to be “nice”, it is most of the times more than enough to write a few words with a link to the source.
We also want to use this site to share own thoughts about Roxette & Co. What forum do we like most/recommend? Other artists we think other Roxers might like? What’s going on in the Rox community? Who is going to what show?
And of course, your feedback is more than welcome!
After adding “Sleeping in my car” to the playlist on Party crasher tour’s Cologne show (April 27th), now was a high time for Son of a plumber’s single – “Hey Mr DJ (Won’t you play another love song)” in Gent, Belgium (May 2nd). According to Per at gessle.com, the whole show was a blast with many international fans from Spain and Argentina in the audience.
The CD won’t be released by EMI but Sony. “Miracles do happen!” told Per via Twitter. More at TDR
