Roxette in Latvia

New Wave Festival
The Daily Roxette got hold of Per just before leaving for Latvia and the New Wave festival where Roxette will perform “for real” for the first time in 8 years tomorrow. Per says they are bringing C&C – Christoffer and Clarence on bass and keyboards respectively, Pelle Alsing on drums and Jonas Isacsson on guitar. Per has super-charged his Gretsch this time.

It seems Roxette will play the same five songs as on the Night of the Proms; “Wish I Could Fly,” “The Look,” “Joyride,” “It Must Have Been Love” and “Listen to Your Heart.”
