Roxette XXX Tour – München, Germany (Olympiahalle) – July 07 – #49

Certain things were cooking today. Two of them: Munich from the outside (36°C) and from the inside, or rather inside the Olympiahalle. 8300 enthusiastic people helped themselves with the heat and made the roof fly away at Roxette’s 49th show on this world tour in Munich.

For many die-hards the day was also the day of goodbyes: Goodbyes to fellow Roxers who they won’t see now for quite a while and the goodbye to Roxette, who played their last show in Germany. So for many it was quite sad and true when Per Gessle said that this will be the last concert for a while in Germany and therefore certainly a night to remember. Some fans even think there won’t ever be another Roxette tour, so they were prepared for a sad goodbye anyway.

Per, though, couldn’t have been more right. He might not have known at this very moment that the Munich show could reach the Berlin league, but this hot and sweaty summer night became one to remember. The sweat didn’t stop the audience from dancing, shouting, singing. There was such a tremendous noise in the Olympiahalle that some people in the standing area turned their heads, looking around and wondering if this really could be the audience singing. It was! I don’t think I have ever heard German fans sing this loud. It gave many of us int the front rows goosebumps and forced us to go on and on with clapping, jumping and singing – besides the heat that had weakened us tremendously while waiting outside for the doors to open.

Munich is almost always a blast, but this night was very very special. So, now, after the German leg of the tour is over it is easy to choose the best two shows: Berlin and Munich. The audience in both cities was cooking, could never be stopped and came to the show for one main reason: to party together with their idols from the past.

It didn’t  matter that not everything worked on stage and that the sound in the front rows wasn’t the best (it never is, I know that, but in this case, it was a bit worse than usual), it was enough to hear 8,000 people sing together. Again almost instantly when “How do you do” started and even more than at the other shows during “She’s got nothing on but the radio” audience and band became one. We tend to forget that “Radio” was a chartbreaker a few years ago, but the audience didn’t. So those two songs might have been the best tonight – they turned the last German show into a glowing memory for all of us!

Vienna tomorrow!

Per after the show:

MUNICH UPDATE: Oh yea, finishing the German leg of the tour in style. We had a blast tonight in front of a superb crowd, 8300 wild ones. So dear German friends, see y’all soon, it’s always a pleasure being here and enjoying your endless love, affection, beer and hospitality!!!! Danke schön! /P.

Misc

5,800 people in the audience, that makes the Olympiahalle half full/empty. Reviewers wonder why. The quite late announcement after the Audi gigs this summer in Bavaria could be a reason. In the official German tour announcement Munich wasn’t listed yet.

Additional show in Munich?

It’s not listed in the tour plan yet. But if you believe the newsletter, German ticket website Eventim sent out earlier today, there’s an additional show in Germany planned. This would be the first show of the autumn leg. The show in the Olympiahalle in Munich is listed for the 11th of October. The ticket sale starts tomorrow at 9 am.

Source: Eventim Newsletter

UPDATE, 18/03/: The ticket sale started one hour ago and Munich is not on the list anymore. So maybe it’s simply not confirmed yet or Eventim just got wrong information.

ROS:

Munich #2 was superb ! This is what I call an audience ! Per was wearing black and white pants this time. Everything went perfect from the beggining. Marie was very very warm with the audience, waving and smiling. Per was little bit too serious. At the end of the show he stole Chris’ hat. Per threw his bouquet and me and my friends got it ! Per & Marie left early tonite as well but Pelle, Chris and Clarence were there for a small chat (under the snow).

From Ros:

Marie was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G !!!!!

The show yesterday was amazing ! Marie was in top shape since the begining with WICF ! Walked around the stage and danced during TL and Joyride. By the way, the na na na during TL was mixed with the na na na of Hey Jude here as well. ITHBL started with the acustic version with just Per and Marie. Lovely ! Per was very enthusiastic as well, walked down few steps of the stairs there are in the stage. He rocks ! The crowd was very receptive. There were quite a few fans waiting outside Olympiahalle (Sweden, Germany,Russia, Argentina and Uruguay) but ROX left early after the show.
