Roxette XXX Tour – Adelaide, Australia – February 17 – #19

The third Australian concert happened in Adelaide tonight. Fortunately, it was the same day as One Direction’s Adelaide gig, so there was no chance for the band to attend yet another 1D show and thousands of Aussies could show they have a great taste in music, so they chose and went to see Roxette. The concert turned out to be a blast. The band could have the whole crowd on their feet and the audience was singing along and dancing through the night, enjoying hearing their most fave Rox hits.

This time Marie decided to be sitting from the very beginning of the concert, so she could concentrate more on her singing, which of course, blew the whole crowd away and the audience felt very proud of her. Marie was smiling all the time and showed how she enjoyed the whole thing. Per was on a high and the band joined him with the same mood. Some said they have never seen such an animated crowd in Adelaide, so they certainly did a great job.

One couldn’t keep up with all the fab short clips Per posted after the concert ended. He spent appr. 2 hours with sharing many-many videos Åsa recorded at the show. Check out Roxette’s Facebook page to watch them!

The setlist was the same as in Perth, so sadly, Perfect Day, 7Twenty7 and Queen Of Rain are not yet back.

Per’s comment after the gig:

ADELAIDE: Yes and wow! What a gig! Superb crowd and a very motivated band. Can’t go wrong with that hit bonanza the last 45 minutes!!!! Thanx for coming, we felt unstoppable tonight. See y’all in Melbourne. /P.

Next gig is on Friday (20th February) in Melbourne, Australia.
