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. Inspired by Per’s Gessle Over Europe we searched youtube for concert videos to get songs from every concert. In doing so, our intention was not to create a fine high quality masterpiece but a nice souvenir of this miraculous tour.

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!
See the screenshots from the recording
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!
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)
Lineage: USB transfer to PC -> Adobe Audition v.3.0 (slight EQ applied, normalised, dithering to 16/44) -> CDWave for track splits -> Flac Frontend (level 8, aligned on sector boundaries)

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 ))
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!
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.
