New date initially confirmed – in Argentina

As informs, producer Pablo Baldini confirmed that Roxette is set to come to the 7th largest Argentinian city of Mar Del Plata in March or April 2012. The concert place will be Estadio Polideportivo. According to our sources – the concert is planned to take place on April 28.

You can also see the current plan for the World Tour 2012 – with both confirmed concerts and lovely rumours.

Argentinian musical includes Roxette songs in Spanish

“Eh… No se cómo decirlo” (Eh … I do not know how to say) is a musical based on the Nirvana and Roxette’s songs. This play is being run at the Tabarís theatre in Buenos Aires and now is about to tour the country and Uruguay. The newspapers La Nacion, Pagina 12, La Razon and Perfl wrote pretty good and favorable reviews in the last few days.

The cast of this work consists of Agustina “Sekou” Falliace, Diego Koran and Leo Bosio who supported the project. The plot is about three friends – Luis, Mariana and Martin. Mariana and Luis are getting married. Martin and Mariana are going to meet for the first time. The three of them have something in common, but they do not know how to say it. “Eh … I do not know how to say” is the story of three people who take decisions with the powerful influence of music: Roxette’s melodic pop and Nirvana’s rock. Is life like in their songs?

The idea of “Eh … I do not know how to say” came from the actor, director and playwriter Leo Bosio and his research about lyrics and music dichotomy. “We closed the play at the Tabarís theatre and we wanted to go national. We arranged a tour and went to Cordoba, now in Rosario, soon in Montevideo, Mendoza and Buenos Aires” said Leo Bosio to

Thanks to Arnaldo Mariano Suarez for sending this though.

Metropolitan confirms: Roxette to perform in Rosario, Argentina

As informs, Jorge Cura – Metropolitan’s manager has confirmed that Roxette, Michael Bublé, Joan Manuel Serrat and Joaquín Sabina are set to perform in Rosario arena in 2012. The shows are likely to take place between March and April next year.

It just once again reminds us this little news… We were also informed that another unofficial date is April 20th in Lima, Peru.

So far there’s no accurate translation available, the reviews are very positive from what we understand using Google Translate.

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, 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.

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.

“Gessle over Europe” DVD – menu

The very first look at “Gessle over Europe” DVD menu:

The most interesting things I’ve noticed while the watching:

– the interview parts with Per & fans pop up many times through the Cirkus concert – after “Dressed for success” [Why did Per decide to go on the club tour?], “The Party Pleaser” [Rosina & Dany spotted; Per tells more about how he appreciates the fans – especially those from South America], “She doesn’t live here anymore” [Interview with Ezequiel in Swedish; Per’s story from Warsaw gig about some people from Siberia who came for the concert], “Late, later on” [The idea of this tour], “Do you wanna be my baby?” [Roxette/Gessle music as the soundtrack of our lives; Dany wants her husband to forgive her! :D], “Doesn’t make sense” [The future?], “Joyride” [The little concerts suit Per the best], “Are you an old hippie, sir?” [About “The look”], “It must have been love” [The tour experiances], “Queen of rain” [Per tells more about the band members; fans from Spain, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico after the Cirkus concert]

– though there is a 12 years-old parental adivsory – both videos for “Kix” and “Do you wanna be my babe?” are censored

– some unseen footage from the tour was added to the 100x tribal homevideos
