Polish Radio ZET prepared a special treat for all Roxette fans – they will able to listen interview with Per Gessle and hear the biggest Roxette hits during the Roxette Weekend on December 18th and 19th.
Radio ZET is the official media partner of the New Year’s Eve party in Warsaw. I am not sure if this interview with Per Gessle is new – I suppose it is the one recorded back in 2001 during the first Roxette visit to Poland.
There are two different information – Slovac site Webnoviny claims that the new Roxette single airplay starts on January 4th. On the other hand Australian site The Music Network wrote that the single will be released digitally on January 7th.
If you have any other news regarding the airplay, please let us know.
Update: Per Gessle has confirmed that the single airplay start and release will be January 7.
The Daily Roxette published the updated 2011 Roxette World Tour plan. What has changed?
– the Dubai concert was cancelled (?) before it even went on sale
– the second gigs in Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo and Cape Town are officially confirmed
– Slovakia gets a concert in Kosice on June 6th for about 10,000 people
– still no information regarding the Swiss concert on Moon & Stars Festival in Locarno
– Turkey gig rumours are still not confirmed
We have three good news for you today:
– Roxette show at Credicard Hall in Sao Paulo on April 14th, 2011 is sold out (Source)
– Roxette show at Grand Arena in Cape Town on May 11th, 2011 is sold out (Source)
– Roxette show at The Superbowl in Sun City on May 14th, 2011 is sold out (Source)
Swedish webshops (Bengans, Ginza, Cdon) published a slightly different cover of the new Roxette single “She’s got nothing on (but the radio)”. Does it mean we will get a maxi single with remixes or the previous version was changed in the last moment?
The Swedish music shops www.bengans.se, www.ginza.se and www.cdon.se have moved the release date of Roxette’s forthcoming single “She’s Got Nothing On (But The Radio)” to January 28 from the previous January 10. Without a confirmation by management so far we can’t say if this rescheduling is part of Roxette’s global release plan or just a local adjustment, maybe even a database error.
If January 28 gets confirmed, the gap between single and album (still at February 11) will be shortened from 4 to 2 weeks, while advanced airplay could get increased from a couple of days to 2-3 weeks.
Update: Also amazon.de lists the single for January 28.
Yesterday at the Apollo club in Harlem an exclusive concert for SIRIUS XM listeners took place. SIRIUS XM launched a month-long “Paul McCartney’s Band on the Run Radio” channel devoted to the music of Paul McCartney. The concert also celebrated that SIRIUS XM reaching 20 million subscribers.
Per Gessle was one of the guests – he was sitting next to Keith Richard and Ronny Wood.
Great Paul McC-show tonight at the Apollo in Harlem. He started with Magical Mystery Tour. Hard to beat!
Interesting ppl in the seats next to me: Keith and Ron liked it when Macca did Marvin’s Hitchhike…
According to biletti.ru website, the first concert on the 2011 Roxette World Tour in Russian city Kazan will take place on February 28th instead of March 1st as the first press release informed. Please, be aware that this information is not yet official.
RoxetteBrasil.net informs that another date was added in Brazil – the 5th concert will take place on April 19th in Sao Paulo. Despite earlier fears the second concert in Buenos Aires should take place on April 5th.

As Evgeny Perekopskiy posted on his Facebook account today, Roxette – including the band with Clarence Öfwerman, Christoffer Lundquist, Pelle Alsing and Magnus Börjeson – have been in Moscow during the last days. They arrived on December 9th in the evening and flew back to Stockholm this morning.
So far, nobody knows why they have been there and what they did. So speculations started that Roxette either did a video or photo shoot or came to Moscow for some TV show recording, maybe even some New Year’s Eve show.
Back from Moscow Per Gessle lets us know what the trip was about:
Just got home from a couple of dayz (and nights) in jolly Moscow. Great TV-show, superb crowd. Hey you Russian ppl, see ya again in March!
According to Polsat TV‘s press office – Roxette will definitely perform live on New Year’s Eve party on December 31st in Warsaw. As for the chosen songs, they cannot reveal anything at the moment. They do not want to say how many, which and if any new song will be performed neither. The Polsat press releases informed about “It must have been love”, “Listen to your heart”, “Joyride”, “The look” being performed in Warsaw; on the other hand “How do you do!”, “Dangerous” and “Sleeping in my car” are also used in various TV and radio promos.
Meanwhile, in the streets of Warsaw, in the press and all over the internet the New Year’s Eve concert’s promotion has just began entitled “Sylwestrowa Moc Przebojow” (Power of New Year’s Hits). As you can see below, Roxette’s photo is not on the posters – Polsat TV decided to use only the Polish artists images. Other foreign guests to perform in Warsaw are Opus (“Life is life” theme) and Denzel (“Pump it up”). The Polish artist will perform the most popular European hits as Polsat and the Warsaw authorities want to mark the start of Polish Presidency of the European Union in the second half of 2011.
This will be probably the first time ever when Roxette will perform in front of over 100,000 people. Close to 4,000,000 people are expected to watch the show on Polsat TV. Unfortunately, Polsat has no official live streaming on the internet. The other media partner is Radio ZET, which should broadcast the show as well and yes – you can listen to it all over the world.
If you want to see a TV ad for the concert – “Joyride” and “How do you do!” is used in the background, please visit Polish Roxette fan page on Facebook: www.facebook.com/RoxettePL
The official event website has just opened its gates, though it is only in Polish. The admission to the Constitution Square will begin at 7 PM, one hour before the whole show will start. Between 2 and 7 PM soundchecks and general rehearsal will take place.
If you have any question regarding this show, just drop a line in the comment section.
It has been an exciting journey to write this album. The first time in Swedish and the first time I made music in the computer. A new world has opened for me! Suddenly, I can show you more of what I hear inside my head without being limited by my piano playing. I dared to try everything possible.
The album is also about being a mother and how everything around you is changing then.
Since I’ve become a mother feels as if everything has started all over again. It is as if I was born to a new world. Now our new life has started and we have to learn everything once again. Can you love someone too much? How to become a family? And when should we catch up with everything? My little boy makes me so very happy every day!
A new single “Nån Annanstans, Nån Annan Gång” is being played on Swedish P4 radio. You can also here this song here.
