Electric band 2010 without Jonas Isacsson

According to the German Night of the Proms fan website, Jonas Isacsson won’t be part of the Night of the Proms this year.

A Dutch guitarist called Rob Winter will take Jonas’ place in the Electric Band in 2010. Jonas, who didn’t hesitate to say he’d do the tour again this year, says:

He played with NOTP in Charleroi last weekend. Checked out what he did with Kim Wilde, sounded good.

Additionally, NOTP organizers revealed the first artist for this year’s tour two days ago: Boy George.

NOTP on German TV – part 2.

Tonight the second and the last part of “Night of the Proms 2009” special was broadcasted on Deluxe Music TV. Three Roxette songs made to the final programme – “The Look”, “Listen to your heart” (Marie mixed the first verse a little bit) as well as “Joyride”. We did not only get “It must have been love”, which became the only Roxette NOTP song that was not shown on any out three NOTP TV-specials.

The same id and interview with Per were shown as well as the very short comment from Marie about her feelings concerning that tour.

NOTP on German TV – part 1.

In the first part of “Night of the Proms 2009” from Hannover “Wish I could fly” as well as Deluxe Music TV id with Per Gessle and very short interview with Man himself were broadcasted today. Tomorrow at 7 PM CET the second part will be shown and most likely we will be able to watch “The look” and “Joyride”.

If you would like to catch tomorrow’s show, check this site out. And if someone has recorded the programme in high quality, just feel free and post a link for downloading in comment section 🙂

Disappointing NOTP radio broadcasts in Germany

Looking forward to the radio broadcasts of the NOTP shows of several German radio stations I listened to Bayern 3, WDR 2 and SWR 1 so far. After having spent three nights in front of the PC listening to the programmes the result is just disappointing:

Only Bayern 3 was able to bring us a “new” recording with “Wish I could fly” and “Joyride” from Munich. On some special they even played “It must have been love” AND interviewed Christoffer Lundquist and Clarence Öfwerman and played “The Look” from Munich, too. Unfortunately, the only thing that annoyed me on this show was the host who talked about Marie as a woman with silver hair. He reacted to emails very quick and admitted that he used some stuff from the CD and recordings from Antwerp/Rotterdam as well. But in the end – this was the best radio special about NOTP in Germany so far.

The next to come was the special on WDR2. They even splitted the NOTP broadcast in two parts on two nights, so I thought we were supposed to get some new stuff. In the end, they played “The Look” and “Listen to your heart” from of the official NOTP CD and “Joyride”, which most probably came from Rotterdam or Munich and was nothing new to us. The host said that Marie looks “static” on stage and that she hasn’t fully recovered yet – well, there is nothing MORE to recover for her. She will stay like that – I think. Of course, we all would be happy if it wasn’t, who knows. In fact the host thought she isn’t in the best of health and said it. In the end – no new recordings here, too.

SWR1 played “Wish I could fly” – which would have been nice to know, because they didn’t play it in the official NOTP hours but BEFORE the show started. Well, in the end there is nothing to be angry about because they also didn’t offer anything new but played the already known version from Munich. When the show started I was happy because they played live stuff which wasn’t on the CD, but now I think it also was the Munich stuff. Looking forward to Roxette the next disapppointment came immediately. Again: No new version of “The Look” and “It must have been love”, but another time from the CD.
Compared to what the Belgium and Dutch channels offered so far this is just really disappointing. But in the end the Belgian/Dutch shows were better as well. So it fits..

Looking to the future… the far away future… well, there will be a TV show about this year’s Proms on Deluxe Music around EASTER. A bit late, eller hur?

Full list:

The Look, Interview, It must have been love, Wish I could fly (from Munich)
Listen to your heart and The Look (from CD)
Joyride (from wherever..)
Thumbs up to Bayern 3, a big Boooh to WDR2 and SWR1 (although the SWR1 host was much nicer and seemed to know all the relevant facts about Marie)
