Roxette 30th Anniversary Tour: Moscow, Russia – November 21 – #11

Who would have thought, but after all the ”best so far” gigs in Russia, Moscow became No. 1! The concert was officially sold out and 8000 people were there in the crowd to make noise. The crowd was really fab, their hands were in the air all the time and they were singing, jumping and dancing during the whole show. Those who attended the concert say they had an extraordinary experience. Roxette is a band that needs no support act to warm up the crowd. From what I could see, Moscow audience brought the most balloons during the Russian leg of the tour. They looked very good in the air during Joyride.

Perfect Day got back to the setlist to make it complete for the last Russian show. Marie was not sitting during any of the songs this time. Per was jumping even more than usual, Ms Effe sounded awesome and the band was on a high, too. So much on a high that Dea, Mister Magnus and Chris came off the stage during The Look and went close to the crowd to party a bit together with them. So cool! This show was a perfect way to celebrate Clarence birthday’s eve. Grattis, Clarence!

Per & Co about Moscow show and all 11 Russian concerts:

MOSCOW UPDATE: Truly fab gig tonite. Wonderful crowd and a band on fire. Thanx RUSSIA for taking care of us on this tour!! Eleven unbelievable gigs!!!

Roxette to play the last concert of 2011 in Russia

SAV Entertainment, a company that was responsible e.g. for organizing two Russian Roxette shows in 2010, has just announced that Roxette is due to perform in Moscow on December 1st this year. The concert will take place in Crocus City Hall, a multipurpose two-level concert hall that can accommodate over 6,000 people. It is said to be the closing show for this year’s tour.

Thanks to Evgeny Perekopskiy for this information.

Note: we’ve heard more than once hints that the tour should go on in 2012. Of course, no details are available, so we base these speculations on some statements done by Per and Marie, like that the tour lasts one year, that Per mentioned Halmstad may be in the plan “next year”. And, of course, that they might play in the USA.

As we haven’t been at the concerts Arlanda and I (Kerstin) decided to make this little bootleg to remember and celebrate Roxette’s comeback.

2010 tour bootleg: Moscow, video

So it’s another day and another bootleg. It will be hard to beat yesterday’s live album with any other audio recording that I have, so today I chose a video bootleg for a change. It was recorded in – suprise, suprise – Moscow! So Russians did it again. Not only recorded the concert in a very good quality, but someone (was he/she Russian?) recoreded this nice, sometimes a little bit shaky and too-many-heads-on-the-screen video. Not everything is there (Kalinka-Malina is missing for instance), but well, you cannot have everything, can you?

What can I say? It’s just worth watching. And if you know the person who did this, please let us know – we would like to write it was You, Dear Fan (though no money for copyrights, sorry 🙂

If you have any creative idea how to call it or what kind of cover it should have, please feel free and drop a line in the comment section!

DOWNLOAD

You will download 2 torrent files. There are two versions of this video bootleg. One is over 4 GB and it is divided into separate songs, the second one is smaller, about 1.5 GB and everything is in one part. Enjoy!

2010 tour bootleg: “From Russia with love” (Moscow, audio)

I was a little bit anxious to post bootlegs from 2010 tour, but since we got an official ok from The Man through Twitter, so it became just question of time with which bootleg to start with? As for now there are at least 3 bootlegs circulating over the internet and at least 2 more I know that will be available soon. I have decided to choose the one with the best quality. The recordings come from the concert which took place in Moscow on September 10th, 2010. It was recorded and mixed by Jacob “Rocktrades”.

Equipment: AT943 cardioid –> CA-9100 (no bass roll-off) –> Edirol R-09 (Line-in 24bit/44.1kHz)

Fan stories

BY VASSILIY:

After Joyride (if my memory runs perfect) guys said “Moscow, thank you!” and left the stage. Marie was near the mic, smiling and looking at happy crowd, and when she looked back she saw no one on the stage except her ) She hesitated. Said ” You are great!”, turned back looking for someone to re-appear on the stage, but there was still no one. Then a guy appeared and accompanied her out. Since the croud was crying “Marie, Marie” and Marie herself performed this awkward moment with a little bit of humour, it all looked sweet ))

Media reports

Review by kp.ru | ruf.ru:

Their songs are natural, like air, for now three generations of Russians. I’ve never seen such an unanimous warm welcome to foreign artists by the metropolitan audience. The journey into joy succeeded!

Trivia

New interview: “Maybe we’ll tour in Europe, South America and Canada”

And there’s yet another Per interview from Russia! Some interesting bits:

– Roxette aims to tour in Europe, South America and Canada.
– They already recorded a dozen tracks and should be finished in a few weeks.
– Per thinks Marie recovered so well not least thanks to the love for music and desire to sing.
