Roxette have no plans to release full live show on DVD/BD

According to various sources Roxette decided not to release a full live show on DVD/Blu-ray Disc. Despite previous announcements about filming in Barcelona, Oberursel, Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro, now we know those plans do not exist any longer. Instead of releasing the concert, the band is working on a documentary where they can potentially ‘squeeze’ several live songs inbetween. Something in the style of Gyllene Tider’s “Återtåget” documentary? We assume so. The documentary will have two versions: a longer one that is aimed to be released for sale and a shorter one for Swedish channel TV4.

The crew has visited Roxette so far in e.g. South Africa, China and now they came to South America to film the Argentinian and Brazilian hypes.

Our comment: We feel disappointed with a such decision. So far the only Roxette concert available in HQ is “MTV Unplugged”. No other show was released in any of contemporary formats (we exclude CD discs). This situation reminds us of the lost opportunity to film the “Room Service Tour”. We don’t want this to happen again. Please, Per & Marie, EMI Music & Live Nation staff, reconsider your decision!

Update: And here we got comment from Per Gessle himself.

Personally I think this is a brilliant idea. You get a shorter version for TV + a longer version for the DVD market. The long one will have at least 60-70 min live stuff. It’s splendido to mix up live performances w/ funny stuff from backstage + studio + hotels + airports + private areas. Otherwise you’ll fall asleep. But that’s me.

Roxette to record the Barcelona show for a live DVD

Per Gessle announced yesterday that Roxette’s concert in Barcelona on November 19th will be recorded for a live DVD. Here is what Per wrote on Roxette Official Facebook page:
It was just decided that the Barcelona show will be recorded for a glorious DVD-release down the road. Bring your banners!!!
The concert was sold-out by end of August and last week it was announced that the concert had been moved to a bigger venue, Palau Sant Jordi.

Additional tickets are on sale on these websites:  | | and El Corte Ingles.

The Spanish Fanclub is also organising a party after the concert.
Palau Sant Jordi, DVD, party.. no excuse to miss this concert! It’s going to be a night to remember!
