Gyllene Tider press conference 18th April, 2013

We already informed you about some rumours regarding Gyllene Tider changing the venue in Gothenburg. Today, on a press conference it has been confirmed: GT rocks Ullevi on 12th July! Woohoo! 🙂

Slottsskogensvallen was already sold out (20,000 tickets) and Per said they don’t know if Ullevi will be sold out as well, but it doesn’t matter, the gig will be magical anyway. Micke Syd thinks it’s fantastic that they get the chance to do something they never thought would happen again.

The broadcast’s sound was too bad at the beginning but it got better and better and then ended soon. You can watch it here.

The Per Gessle Selection goes social

If you don’t have enough Roxette- or Per Gessle-related sites to follow, here you have the new Facebook page for Per’s wine selection. Knowing Mr. G, the page will surely be managed by himself. There are already some nice pictures of the wines available so far.

On the side of Sommartider wine boxes you can find some summer tips from the sommarguru:

  • Titta mot himlen och blunda! (= Look at the sky and close your eyes!)
  • Skriv en sommardikt. Du kan om du vill (= Write a summer poem. You can if you want)
  • Ät några smultron så blir du glad! (= Eat some wild strawberries and you will be happy!)
  • Gå och fiska ibland! (= Go fishing sometimes!)
  • Ta hand om dina vinyl-skivor. De är dina bästa vänner! (= Take care of your vinyl records. They are your best friends!)
  • En cykelhjälm är aldrig fel! (= A bicycle helmet never comes amiss!)

 

Now only one thing is missing: someone, please, make the wines available worldwide!

 

If you’re in Sweden, you can order the newest wines here:

Gyllene Tider’s Man blir yr video premiere and chat with Per Gessle

Gyllene Tider’s video for their first single off Dags att tänka på refrängen album, ”Man blir yr” premiered on Aftonbaldet TV today. When Per posted ”Video is coming soon!” on Gyllene Tider’s facebook page on 1st April, most of us thought it was just an April Fool’s Day post. Now the video is really here. Most scenes in the clip are from TV4’s Fråga Gyllene Tider show or at least from the same day, shot in the rehearsal studio. There are many old Gyllene Tider pictures appearing, too. The ending is too cool with Per throwing a plec. Watch it yourself!

Fans also had a chance to chat with Mr. Gessle on Aftonbladet at 12:30 CET today. The chat lasted for about 35 minutes.

From the chat we get to know that the girl in Man blir yr video is called Filippa. The guy who drew the awesome Gyllene Tider cartoon characters is called Paco. Ullevi was his best concert with Gyllene Tider and it’s still not out of the game this year. There most probably won’t be any more Gyllene Tider signing sessions than the 3 already announced ones. Mr. Gessle promises there will be some unexpected songs on tour. There is a plan to record the tour on DVD.

Per sings much much worse after drinking 4-5 beers, so he never drinks alcohol before a gig. He’s losing focus and it fits his personality very badly. Mr. G is not listening to Justin Bieber (surprise, surprise…).  If he could have a dinner with three other musicians, dead or alive, he would choose John Lennon, Syd Barrett and Mama Cass. To the question regarding what he’s most proud of in his career he replied:

I am proud that I still have a wonderful relationship with the audience. It’s the audience around the world that made all this possible.

He says he has never been angry with anyone in the audience while he was on stage:

Our audience is generally VERY positive and active and you never want to stop playing for them!

Regarding his actual hairdo (the hairdo, the hairdo!!! read it carefully! 🙂 ) he says:

I like my hair right now because I can shake it so cool when I play a ruthless G major on Rickenbacker!

The last question  – coming from Felix – was when he is resting. Per’s reaction:

Felix, you sound like my wife!!!!!! I’ve been floating in my life and get to work with what I love. I’ll rest later.

Roxette live and documentary DVD postponed until late summer

Per Gessle posted the following message on Facebook:

Roxette Live+Documentary DVD/BlueRay update: Looks like we have to wait until late summer for release. However, it will include full concert + extended documentary + 90 min hilarious So, Christoffer!-vids. Maybe we should make the audio available on its own as well. It sounds terrific. We all agree that live albums are underrated! /P.

The DVD was originally schedulled for the first quarter of 2013.  The documentary was already broadcasted on SVT1 in December 2012 and a short version of the live DVD was also on SVT early January 2013.

But reading Per’s update, it seems that the waiting will pay off if really the full concert is included and an extended version of the documentary!

And YES, please, make the magnific audio available!
