Roxette World Tour 2011 – let’s help with the setlist again!

You may remember that we collected your song suggestions for the summer tour setlist. “Silver blue” ended up at #1 and the song was added to the setlist, even Per introduced the song on the concerts refering to the internet community and the song being our request.

Today, he wrote the following on Facebook: “Thanx for the super-duper-overwhelming response re the upcoming tour. Let’s find a proper setlist!!!”

So start writing down your wishes! It will work the same as last time:

  • you write down your own TOP 3 of Roxette’s songs you would like to hear on the concert(s?) in 2011 in the comments to this article
  • the # 1 in your list gets 3 points
  • # 2 – 2 points
  • # 3 – 1 point
  • in the end of November we will collect all the lists and make the final setlist.

Of course, it would be great if you could come up with some new and never-heard live songs, so we have a better chance one rare song is played live! So grab your Rox-collection and start digging 😉

Thanks 🙂

Update: And here are the results!

Roxette announces world tour!

Live Nation sent a press release today announcing a Roxette world tour. Read yourself!

Roxette are setting off on a much anticipated world tour 2011. They kick off in Kazan, Russia March 1st and will cover at least four continents during the year. Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle are returning to the world stage full of new enthusiasm after their six sold out concerts last summer. Roxette toured Europe in 2001. However, the last world tour took place in 1994-95 with the “Crash! Boom! Bang!” album.

Roxette is one of the world’s most successful hit machines. Their big break came in the late 80s with “The Look” from the album “Look Sharp!” Since then the band has ruled album and single charts all over the world with massive songs like “It Must Mave Been Love”, “Listen To Your Heart”, “Joyride”, “How Do You Do!”,“Dangerous”, “Fading Like A Flower”and “Dressed For Success”. Roxette have sold over 75 million albums and the epic songs “Listen To Your Heart” and “It Must Have Been Love” have each been played over 4 million times on US radio alone. For a period of four years in the 90s the band never left the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

‘If you’d asked me a couple of years ago,  if there would ever be a new Roxette tour I would have very quickly said “No!”,´ says singer, guitarist and songwriter Per Gessle. ‘Knowing what Marie (Fredriksson, lead vocalist) had to go through in recovering from her severe illness, this is not only unbelievable, it seems almost magical to me. It will be wonderful to meet all our audience on Planet Earth again.’

‘I’ve been longing and hoping for this since 2002. It makes me incredibly happy to know we’re going to meet our fans all around the world again,’ says Marie.

Besides the tour, Roxette fans can look forward to a brand new album in the first quarter of 2011.
