Evgeny Perekopsiky was the first one (as always :-)) to find this short ad for the Russian New Year’s Eve programme “Olivier”. You have to skip to the 5th clip and you will be able to see a glimpse of “The look” performance. Watch it here
In Polsat TV’s news programme “Wydarzenia” there was a short report about Roxette’s career today. Roxette should arrive at Warsaw Chopin Airport on Friday morning. The Polsat TV journalist even claimed that Roxette might perform a new single in Warsaw on December 31st. Time will tell if is possible…
This TV report will be uploaded on You Tube shortly.
Thanks to Polish roxette.pl Facebook fans for this piece of information.
Polsat TV presented two new ads for the New Year’s Eve Party in Warsaw. The first one uses two Roxette songs in the background: “Joyride” and “How do you do!”. In the second one Marie and Per appeared – the ID was recorded in Moscow while recording of the Russian “Olivier” show. Per says in Polish “Badzcie z nami”, which can be translated into “Be with us (there)”.
Mats Udd, on his own blog site, published some photos from the making of the “She’s got nothing on (but the radio)” video. On December 21st, the second day of the recordings, Mats posted 4 photos – on that Tuesday “the story part” was recorded. It is unknown if these photograpies are some scences from the video or just the people behind this clip.
Per Gessle has informed us today that he just got hold of the first version of the She’s Got Nothing On (But The Radio)-video clip and that it looks promising. The premiere is schedule on January 7th.

Every year Swedish tabloid Expressen ranks the most important Swedish celebrities of the year. In 2009 Per Gessle was on the 33rd position and Marie was 84th. This year, thanks to the royal wedding and small summer tour, Roxette was ranked as the 23rd celebrity of the year in Sweden.
We hope you had a lovely Christmas break. Only 4 days are left in our Roxette World Tour 2011 competition – December 31st is the deadline. You can choose max. three songs that you would like to hear during the forthcoming concerts. Of course, we skip the big hits and concentrate on those less known pearls. In fact I would like you to choose only these tracks that were NEVER performed live before. It was you, dear RoxetteBlog.com readers, who managed to place “Silver blue” on the Roxette’s 2010 playlist. Marie and Per are still interested in your opinions. Rehearsals start in February, but now it’s the last moment to vote.
I have counted almost 180 votes so far and results are quite interesting. If you haven’t voted yet, do it know. And yes, we are going to do a second part of voting after the “Charm school” album’s release.
Just in time for Roxette’s new single, album and tour, the official site www.roxette.se got relaunched. The website had been under the previous design concept for roughly five years. It shared the basic concept with all other official Per Gessle homepages and had been launched with Per’s “Sun Of A Plumber” album in late 2005 (as far as I remember). Now it appears to be a standalone website, the other homepages remain unchanged so far. Check out the new content and functions!
The site features new and improved pages for news, biography, discography, lyrics, gallery, newsletter, webshop (via bengans.se) and contact adresses, embeds Per’s latest Twitter messages and links to the merchandise store, Gessle/Roxette forum, Snowish, Twitter and Facebook pages. Note that it’s the Roxette Facebook page, not Per Gessle Official. So it looks like Roxette will control that (so far passive) page soon as well.
She’s Got Nothing On (but the radio)
What she got she got to give it to somebody
What she got she got to give it to someone
It’s not a case of growin’ up or lots of money
It’s just the fundamental twist of the sun

26-year-old Mats Udd from Falun is working on the new Roxette video for “She’s got nothing on (but the radio)” single. The world premiere is scheduled for January 7th.
EMI Svenska liked Mats Udd’s videos which he did for e.g. Swedish musician Familjen and he was appointed to record the new Roxette video in the end of November.
– I gave them four proposals and one of them was chosen. Just over a week ago I was told that “we are doing this”. On Monday I filmed Per and Marie and on Tuesday we did a story part.
The video will be put together in New York as Mats Udd is planing to spend Christmas holidays there.
He has made many other clips before for such artists like Timo Räisänen, First Aid Kit and Those Dancing Days. With Roxette for the very first time he has got the chance to work with a much larger productions.
In only 9 days Roxette will perform on this stage in the centre of Warsaw on the New Year’s Party organized by Polsat TV and The City of Warsaw .
By the way… -15 C degrees is expected here in Warsaw on December 31st. That will be a very cool evening for sure.
Update: Agata Mlynarska, one of the New Year’s Eve Party hosts, revealed that Roxette would perform in 3 sets – two sets before the midnight and one on January 1st. It seems like they will perform 2 songs in each set. There is also a chance for another song according to Polsat. It is still unknown what the 6th and possible 7th song will be.
