20 tour dates for 2016?

Per says in the Kappahl interview that the plan is to go on with the tour until 2016 (asDSC00278 he already mentioned many times before, and that would be the meaning behind the whole XXX tour, as Roxette turns 30 in 2016!).

Now he revealed that Roxette plans to do about 80 dates until 2016. If you count the dates until Drammen (Norway) on August 22, that makes up to 61 dates. Which means about 20 would be left to be announced / planned. And this raises lots of questions:

Will these dates be in 2016 only? Will there be more in 2015? Where will it take Roxette to? South Africa? South America? North America? Some more Europe / Sweden to celebrate the 30th anniversary “home”? Lots of questions for our never-resting minds!

What we know for sure is that fans are longing to see more of Roxette live, both those who have been to (many) shows since the tour started and those who haven’t seen Roxette since at least 2012. And that The Look 2015 is awesome. And that we cannot wait until the new album is out! And that we already need the tour dates for 2016.

USA fans getting ready for Roxette’s visit: fan meeting, contest and more!

In less than two weeks Roxette will be rocking the Beacon Theatre in New York. This will be the first concert out of four of Roxette in USA and a group of six Roxette fans are preparing some nice events to celebrate and enjoy the party together.

These fans have created a group in Facebook where they share and organise everything.

Here is an overview so you don’t miss a thing:

– “The Big A.” – Fan meeting in New York before the concert. Meeting point is Boat Basin Café at around 6 p.m. EDT. More information in this event here.

– Contest to win a Meet&Greet with Roxette in one of the 4 shows.  Six contests have been set up (ie create banners, take pictures of your collection, create a piece of art…).
Check this file out for detailed information on how to participate and win!
Note: it’s for USA citizens or residents only! RoxetteBlog will be the jury in one of the contests.

– The Roxette in North America T-shirt! The team has designed a t-shirt for the occasion, which could be ordered by anyone interested. You can see the design here.

More events may show up the next days.

Thank you Miedy Bishop, Adam Bishop, Lana Sachse, Jennifer Malcome, Marc Tannen and Kemerly for organising all this! See you next week.
