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.

Christoffer Lundquist to release solo album in May

As previously reported, Christoffer Lundquist is going to release a solo album in the following months. Warner Music Sweden AB has sent out a press release today with some information about the album:

– Album release is set for May 4th – two days after Christoffer is going to receive the “Sir George Martin Music Award” in Palladium, Malmö.

– Title: “Through The Window”.

– Tracklist (taken from Swedish online stores Ginza.se or CDON)

01. Green
02. On Air
03. The Raging Hands Of Time
04. Tiny Penelope
05. Full Moon
06. By A Garden Wall
07. A Clearing In The Forest
08. Cloudberry Way
09. Through The Window
10. Everybody Prop.8 Breakdown
11. Everything About This Life Is Garbe D In Mystery
12. Early Morning Street
13. Not A No-no
14. Showtime
15. Angel Blue

– Cover: seems to be taken from/in the studio.. with some wild animals and plants in addition 😉

– It has taken Christoffer 12 years to finish the album, which might not be surprising given that Christoffer’s studio Aerosol Grey Machine has always been taken by other artists. So the only hours the studio was free and he could work on the album were between 4 and 6 in the morning. And Christoffer needed some sleep as well.

– Christoffer has recorded, mastered and mixed the album himself. He also plays all instruments, except for the drums.

And about the award:

George Martin about the award and Christoffer: “When I was his age I was in the middle of producing Sgt. Pepper for The Beatles but nobody took any notice of me until much later. I wish to cheer him with his success and wish him well for his future!”

Here is once again the promotion medley uploaded by Warner.

Christoffer released an EP called “Major & Minor Songs” which contained 4 tracks in 2005. You can read a review by Tomasz here.

The BBC reviews “Charm School”. Fun reading!

Chris Roberts of the BBC got to review Roxette’s new album for the upcoming UK release. They get away pretty fine!

With a Hollywood-like sense of triumph over adversity, Roxette return with their first album since singer Marie Fredriksson was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2002. She recovered, and the Swedish power-pop duo seems appropriately exhilarated. …
