Roxette and Gyllene Tider items auctioned for children’s rights

Swedish NGO BRIS (Children’s Rights in Society) has started an auction via auction website Tradera as part of the organisation’s 40th anniversary. The auction includes some Roxette and Gyllene Tider items.

Traderahas set up a special website for this campaign, where the auctions started yesterday, March 17th and will go on until March 31st. The collected money will be used for various help actions for children.

Additional show in Munich?

It’s not listed in the tour plan yet. But if you believe the newsletter, German ticket website Eventim sent out earlier today, there’s an additional show in Germany planned. This would be the first show of the autumn leg. The show in the Olympiahalle in Munich is listed for the 11th of October. The ticket sale starts tomorrow at 9 am.

Source: Eventim Newsletter

UPDATE, 18/03/: The ticket sale started one hour ago and Munich is not on the list anymore. So maybe it’s simply not confirmed yet or Eventim just got wrong information.

First number of Swedish magazine StyleBy includes a story about Marie Fredriksson

The first number of new Swedish fashion magazine StyleBy, which hits the streets today, features a fashion reportage about Marie Fredriksson’s style through the years as well a short interview with her. In the pages various models wear 10 of her outfits, with a comment to each piece by Marie.

Jonna Bergh, editor in chief and publisher of StyleBy, told us that Marie has stored all her outfits in a huge wardrove, “it was like a fashion museum!”.

The magazine is also available as a free app for iPad called StyleBy+. You can buy the magazine via this app, which includes a very cool photo of Marie which is not in the screenshots below.

StyleBy gave us permission to post screenshots of the article. A translation of Marie’s comments will be available in short!

Additional tour dates in Germany in Autumn!

Live Nation has sent out the first dates of the additional dates which will be added to the Roxette World Tour 2011. The dates are, so far, for Germany and Spain (already known) only.

“The concerts have been great so far,” tells Per Gessle. “Marie and the band are in top form and the response of the audience has been incredible. And it is also great that the new album has been received like this. We are very happy and look forward to this exciting year!”

2011.10.13 – TUI Arena – Hannover, Germany
2011.10.14 – Gerry Weber Stadion – Halle (Westfalen), Germany
2011.10.16 – SAP Arena – Mannheim, Germany
2011.10.17 – Schleyerhalle – Stuttgart, Germany
2011.10.19 – König-Pilsner Arena – Oberhausen, Germany
2011.10.24 – O2-World – Berlin, Germany
2011.10.25 – O2-World – Hamburg, Germany
2011.10.27 – Arena Nürnberg – Nuremberg, Germany
2011.11.18 – Palacio Vistalegre – Madrid, Spain – pre-sale starts March 16, normal sale March 18
2011.11.19 – Sant Jordi Club – Barcelona, Spain – pre-sale starts March 16, normal sale March 18

Information about ticket sales in Germany is still not available.

In addition, apparently Live Nation Spain has cancelled the Golden Ring tickets which were announced last week, so currently only the normal tickets (49 EUR) are listed on the website.

More dates to come, hopefully in other countries and Stockholm too! For the complete tour agenda so far, visit our World Tour 2011 page!

Update: Tickets for Germany will go on sale this Friday, March 18 at 9 in the morning.

A short note about releases: The interest in the countries where “Charm School” hasn’t been released yet is very high. However, the album won’t contain the same track list in all countries. For example, China has forbidden Roxette to release “Sleeping In My Car” due to the sexual content. Therefore the live version of this song, which is included in the Deluxe version of “Charm School”, will be excluded.

More dates in Europe and other countries to be added to the Roxette World Tour 2011

In addition to the 2 dates in Spain, which were announced on Friday, we are expecting the rest of the tour dates to be announced in short. Per Gessle mentioned in various interviews in February that 25 more dates would be added to the tour.

Just like in November, when the tour was announced, Per Gessle told via his Facebook website that there would be more news “on March 14th.” However, yesterday afternoon he wrote this update:

No big press release today due to circumstances beyond our control. Anyway, between you and me, it was all about a six-week extension of the Rox tour, taking place between X and Y. More info will follow shortly I’m sure.

Cheers, P.

These are the dates we know so far:

– 16 October – Mannheim, Germany (not confirmed!!)
– 18 November – Madrid, Spain – tickets go on pre-sale March 16th and normal sale on March 18th.
– 19 November – Barcelona, Spain -tickets go on pre-sale March 16th and normal sale on March 18th.

Norwegian band accuses Roxette of plagiarism

According to an article on Norwegian newspapers Dagbladet and Side2,  the Norwegian band Hollywood Vampires claims Roxette has stolen parts of their song “She Had Nothing On But the Radio”, which was released in 2008. According to the singer of the band Paul E. Vercouteren, these parts can be found in Roxette’s latest single “She’s Got Nothing On (But the Radio)”.

“It is weird that another band is earning money on the chorus we wrote,” tells Vercourteren to Dagbladet. Vercourteren claims that besides the chorus, the bass rythm and guitar chords are similar as well, and that all in all, the song is “too similar to be a coincidence”.

The norwegian band is now considering if they take any legal steps against Roxette or not.

Here’s the link to Hollywood Vampires song. What do you think? Personally, to me this song sounds like Green Day.
