World Tour 2011: Montevideo, Uruguay – April 2 #09

Yesterday Roxette landed in Montevideo, Uruguay, what is their first stop in the South American leg of the World Tour 2011. They are going to spend some weeks in Latin America touring in Argentina, Chile and Brazil.
We have read (mostly on Facebook) that many fans already met Roxette and even have partied with the musicians (C, M and P!). Below you’ll find some links!

According to roxette.se, fans who purchase an item from the Official Merchandise stand in the venues in Uruguay, Argentina and Chile will enter a draw to win a Meet and Greet with Marie and Per.

Setlist
The set list contained no new songs (contrary to what Per said that a new song would be added in each continent) and “Silver Blue” was skipped.
Christoffer played “La Cumparsita” during the band introduction.
There was also a big screen at each side of the stage.

Thanks to Rosina for the information.

Roxette’s next single leaked

Of course, this was our April Fool’s 🙂

Yes, it has happened again: Roxette’s next single “Speak To Me”, according to our sources to be released on April 15th, has been leaked. We at Roxetteblog have got a copy of it and what we can already say now is that the song has been remixed and is quite different to the album version.

For example, the duration now is 04:01 min and it features a newly recorded final part in which Marie has a solo sung almost in opera style, supported by heavy rock guitars. And to be honest, the result is quite bad!

Apparently, as it happened in some cases before (remember “Radio” or Per’s single?) someone involved in the production has been careless with the material.

We have contacted Roxette’s management to get an OK to at least share a snippet of the remixed song, it looks quite good so check our website later on today!

For the time being, and as we did when “Radio” or the full album were leaked, we really want to stress out that we don’t support illegal sharing of non-released material and we ask you not to post any links on the comments if you find the song anywhere for download. We also ask you to report such links to us (via contact) so that together, as we did with the previously mentioned releases, can stop the illegal spreading. Thank you!

“Gessle over Poland” Video Bootleg DVD is finally out!

Remember Gessle over Poland audio bootleg we published here last year? Though now it’s the World Tour 2011 time, it’s still nice to watch some clips coming from the memorable European “Party Crasher Tour” by the Man from Roxette.

“Gessle over Poland” video bootleg is the result of nearly 2 years’ work of several people – mostly of Slawek Sztul, the one who has recently recorded Vilnius gig. We tried to do it everything in English, but some materials are in Polish – like radio and press interviews with Per. Anyway – the concert what’s important.

Malin Ekstrand’s solo EP “Nära” is out today

Posted March 11: Malin Ekstrand, whom you have seen singing backing vocals in Roxette’s Summer tour last year, has recorded an EP called “Nära” which is out today on iTunes, Amazon and other digital music stores. 

“The music: Open, Warm, Loving, Personal, Happy, Laid Back, Intimate, Elaborated, Playful, Soft, Ingenious.

I am just like anybody with thoughts and ideas, right and wrong. The difference is that I write it down, using music. My life, so far, has been very exciting and I have had many positive surprises.

In addition to my lovely man and my two wonderful children I also enjoy having music as a close friend. Music has always followed me, but in different shapes and genres: pop, rock, funk, soul, jazz, musicals and that mixture of everything that is a genre of its own. All of it has enriched my life and helped me develop. I have been given the opportunity to explore music as a pianist, a solo artist, a choir singer, a teacher, a creator and as a listener. The music in my life changes, as do my goals and myself. My next goal is to always believe in myself.

A good friend said: If a song has come to you it is selfish not to pass it on. These five songs have come to me, you can have them.

/ Malin”

The EP is released by Swedish record label Monophon and has been recorded in I/O Studios.

Update March 30: Malin’s team now offers an additonal purchase possibility:

For those of you living in parts of the world where iTunes or other download services can’t deliver Malin’s EP “Nära” to you – here is finally a store that we set up especially for you!

Tickets for inner circle available for Roxette’s concert in Denmark

As you know, there are no tickets on sale for the concert of Roxette in Tivoli, Copenhagen (Denmark) on July 22nd. All you need to attend the concert is to buy a ticket to enter the amusement park that very same day.

However, Tivoli has now released tickets for “inner circle” which can be purchased in advance and give you the chance to see the concert from the first rows. According to Tivoli’s website, the Fredagsrock inner cirle is an exclusive area in front of the stage where you can see the performing artists very close. This inner circle is available for 3 concerts: Aqua, Roxette and Nik & Jay.

The good news are: the ticket costs only 125 DKK (or 100 DKK if you have a Tivoli season card) and can be bought online. You will get the ticket including a barcode per email, which you’ll have to print out on A4 and bring to the inner circle to be let in. After the barcode is read, you’ll get a special wristband so can go in and out of this circle. This circle will open at 19:00 (concert starts at 22:00).

Please note: You need a ticket to enter Tivoli as well, which costs 95 DKK (note that you need a ticket for July-September!!) or the season pass.

Sales started on March 21st.
